Mosaic Tiles Technique Card

Yup, I found that silly little tile frame. You will not believe where it ended up. Inside a stamp set. Didn't think to look in there. I even dug through the recycling paper to see if I had accidentally tossed it. Not there nor as it in the obvious places. SO I was going to use the card stock and decorative paper to make a different card using a similar layout and when I opened up the stamp set there that little rascal was!!! So I decided I would go ahead and make up the sample.
Now these tiles are tiny. I used the 1/4" square punch on the image. I had set the tiles on a piece of waxed paper and added my Crystal Effects and let it dry. Once it was dry I assembled the square frame. That frame was made by using a 1-3/8" square punch and in the center I used the 3/4" square punch. I actually used the 3/4" punch first and lined up the bigger one around it to get the square as square as I possibly could.
For the cute little cupcake I stamped the image using Pacific Point ink. The image came from the "Itty Bitty Bits" set. I have used the images, matching buttons and matching punches for everything else except for using them all together. I'm saving that for another day!!!

The decorative paper is from the "Blueberry Crisp" pack. It's exactly like the Razzleberry Lemonade one but in blue!

The background paper is Sahara Sand. That is a color I don't use very often at all. I opened the cupboard to get a piece of card stock and saw how much of that I had on hand. I need to use it more, it is a very pretty color.
I stamped the Happy Birthday on using the "Sincere Salutations" set and Pacific Point ink.
Then I tied a white satin ribbon around it and finally taped it in place. It was an easy card to so. A very simple layout too. It is not quick to do because you must wait for the Crystal Effect to dry. I like to let it dry overnight. That way I'm sure it is dry and I can work with the pieces with no worries.
Check yesterday's post for directions on how to make the Mosaic Tile. It's fun and SO cool!
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
