You Call That A Quilt? Mosaic?

Hi there! I hope your week is going spectacular so far. 
Today's Techn{ink} is a very simple one. 
You may have briefly saw it a few weeks back ..

Some people call it a Domino Technique, a Tiled Stamp Technique, a 
Quilt Technique or even a Puzzle Technique.... 
whatever you consider it, is OK with me...
I just think its a Kreative way to use a stamp in a new and Unique way.
I'll go with a Mosaic Technique!

I chose Old Olive cardstock (#100079) for my card base which I cut down to 5" x 10" and folded in half.
Then I took a piece of  Whisper White cardstock (#124302) which I cut down 
to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" then placed into 
the Vintage Wallpaper Embosslit Folder (#120175) and 
used my Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (#113439) to emboss. 

Next I took a piece of Always Artichoke cardstock (#105119) and 
cut it to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" for accent.
 Then I cut a piece of Textured Whisper White 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and 
handstamped my desired image 
in Baja Breeze (#126960) and Garden Green (#126973) ink.

Once the ink was dry I scored the textured, stamped cardstock into Fours 
and glued onto the Always Artichoke cardstock (#105119) then glued 
that portion to the Embossed Piece. Last I used my Snail Adhesive (#104332)
to glue all my layers to my original  Old Olive  Card Base......

And here is the final Card. 

Cardstock: Whisper White Cardstock #100730,  Old Olive #100079 , and Always Artichoke #105119

Ink: Baja Breeze #126960 and Garden Green #126973 

Tools Used:  Big Shot Die Cutting Machine #113439 ,Vintage Wallpaper 
Embosslit Folder #120175 and Snail Adhesive #104332.

Go On ... Give it a Shot

  3. So the stamped image is scored and not cut? I thought it looks cut because of the space.
