Today’s Tiles is a stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020/2021 Annual Catalog. It has coordinating dies called Field Tiles and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. I love this stamp set for a few reasons. The mosaic design is a two step stamp set which means you make one image using two different stamps. In this case, the tiles are made using 2 stamps. Plus, this stamp set has some great sentiments such as “wishing you peace & happiness”, “I am blessed to have you in my life” and “Thanks for being there when I needed you the most”. There are six sentiments in all including the one I used on this card. Sadly, this is another bundle that will be retiring on May 2nd.
To make this card I first stamped the tiles twice. This stamp is pretty big so the best way to use it is in your Stamparatus or other stamping tool. Once you have it lined up correctly, you can stamp it over and over again using different colors which makes it easy to make multiple cards. I have to admit I used scrap paper the first time to make sure I lined it up correctly and it worked perfectly. The first combination I used is Just Jade for the main image and Night Of Navy for the accents. Then I stamped it again using Smoky Slate and Night Of Navy. I actually did 4 or 5 more color combinations that I can use at another time.
After stamping the tiles, I cut them each one out and evenly layered them on a 3 3/8″ x 5 1/2″piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Night Of Navy ink and then layered that on a 3 5/8″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Just Jade cardstock. The card base is Night Of Navy. I can use the other tiles and make another card sometime in the future.
This card is so pretty Susan. I love the pattern formed by the tiles, and the colors. Also, the way you placed the sentiment in that gap between tiles.
Oh, I love those colors! And – WOW! you cut and layered each tile? What an awesome job. (Any tips for keeping the tiles straight and evenly placed?) Love the sentiment placement too.
