Art With Heart Team May Blog Hop: New Catalogue Preview
May 23, 2019
Welcome to the May blog hop for the lovely Art With Heart team girls. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 - 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
My projects feature a beautiful new Designer Paper called Mosaic Mood. This paper pack didn't immediately jump out at me in the catalogue, but then we received a pack as an all attendee give away on the last day of Onstage. Once opening the pack, the beautiful colours jumped right out at me, as did the clear embossed parts which add beautiful texture and interest. It's a really pretty 12 x 12 paper pack.
I have used the paper to make two cards for some friends that needed a virtual hug recently. There are lots of beautiful floral mosaic images to cut from the paper, and I used those as the feature of my cards.
For some added interest on this first card, I embossed one of the layers with the Subtle embossing folder, which gives a beautiful textured but subtle effect. I also did some very light stamping on the base card (the leaf image is from Healing Hugs stamp set). My greeting on this card is from a set carrying over into the new 2019 Annual Catalogue, called Flourishing Phrases. The inside sentiment says 'with warmth and caring from me'. The greeting on the front of the card fit's nicely in one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes die set. This is one of my most used die sets because it has ovals, squares and circles in the one pack.
As you can see, there's a range of beautiful colours in this paper. The catalogue tells me that the coordinating colours are: Blushing Bride. Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I adapted that a little and used the following colours to give my cards a soft pastel look:
I haven't used So Saffron in what feels like forever, but I think it works really well with this new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. The greeting I have used on this card is from Healing Hugs, another set carrying over to the 2019 Annual Catalogue.
I've used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Stitched Labels dies for the layers of my greeting. I do like my stitched dies, and any interesting shapes I can use for stamping greetings or layering. This large stitched label is one of my favourite dies.
I hope you like my preview of this gorgeous new DSP, Mosaic Mood. If you don't have your own 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue yet, click the contact me button, or catalogues button right at the top of the page to give me your details and I will get one out to you.

Thanks again for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day,
Wow, Claire, these cards are so stunning. I didn't even realise there were flowers in the mosaic paper - I can't wait to see it in real life!

These are just gorgeous Claire, I love all the layers and elements that you have used. I have to admit that this wasn't one of my favourites but the more I see, the more I like!

This DSP isn't my favourite but it certainly is growing on my and you have made me like it even more. Thanks for taking part in the the new annual catalogue blog hop.

I am not a fan of fussy cutting, but I'm thinking I might need to try this at least once. Those cards are incredibly pretty Claire.
