Mosaic Mood Meets Praiseworthy Prose

by Joanne James10. May 2020 10:00

Two posts from me today as whilst I did squeeze in a little crafting yesterday morning, I was too busy enjoying the sunshine the rest of the day to blog - so I'm sharing today! I loved Linda's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and chose to use green, congratulations sentiment embossing folder from the Festive Friday inspo list:


So many ways to interpret the sketch, but in the end I decided to use up more of those fussy cut Mosaic Mood designer papers and pair some border strips with a gorgeous glossy hummingbird and a sentiment from Praiseworthy Prose:


Praiseworthy Prose is another of those sets that hasn’t seem much (any!) ink so I stamped my sentiment in Soft Suede onto a Very Vanilla stitched rectangle and used my hummingbird to accent it. Some subtle embossing to my mat layer completes my card.

I really like this finished card and its one of those that could be used for men or women, which is great as I didn’t have anyone in mind to send it to when I started creating. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I love this mosaic card, Joanne.. The color and subtle texture on your card base is the perfect complement to your border and the delightful hummingbird. Lovely card.

This is beautiful.....your bird is perfectly cut out!  You do know your way around a pair of paper snips!  The textured base is the perfect backdrop!

This is beautiful Joanne. I haven't seen much of this set around blogland which is a shame. Love the way you positioned your bird to point out the pronunciation of the word celebrate! Vicky x

You and LeAnne have both used that lovely hummingbird recently and in both case, with a stunning result. Love your choice of base colour and my, oh my, the Subtle folder continues to be worth every cent.
