Mosaic Marble CQC227


Happy weekend!! What do you have planned this weekend? I have quite a quiet one. I'm going to have a coffee and catch up with an old uni friend this afternoon! I haven't see her since uni despite living in the same town, and when I saw her choosing a tree with her hubby just before Christmas we reconnected! Looking forward to catching up this afternoon! 

I've got a card I made today with this week's Colour Q challenge colour palette.

I thought it was pretty obvious to do something Valentine's related with this colour combo and seeing as us Brits aren't so into Valentine's as our cousins across the pond. So you might be getting tired seeing all these Valentines cards I've been showing off, therefore I decided to try using the colour combo with the stamp set Hello Lovely we got given at Convention.

Stamp Set: Hello Lovely
Ink: Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler
Cardstock: Whisper White,Cherry Cobbler
Paper Trimmer: Scallop Edge 

There are a lot of great "mosaic" stamps in this set but I just fell in love with this one - reminds me of marbles! I seem to like the tumbling theme at the moment - its just so easy and looks fun, plus it doesn't matter too much where you stamp! 

I just wasn't happy with the finished card and pondered chopping off a portion of it to make it a bit more narrow, in the end I just cut off a piece from the front and added some scallop trim. I stamped more mosaic marbles on the inside edge and voila, much improved! 

Hope you enjoyed this fun card - I love that you could switch up the colour combo and you'd get a totally different looking card - how about pool party, pear pizzazz, bermuda bay and island indigo for a more masculine colour theme? If you thought the swirly marble like stamp was too feminine there are plenty of other more geomtric shapes to choose from in the Hello Lovely set!

Happy Stampin',
