1 Minute to WOW! Video. More Mosaic Madness!


Stampinup stamping pretty hooray its your day 3

As I promised on Wednesday’s post, here is another mosaic card and a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial with tips on creating a mosaic card using the Stampin’ Up! Striped Scallop Thinlits Die.

Please click on image above to play video.


  • The Basic Gray scalloped die cut provides a cool contrast against a Whisper White card base.  With shots of Bermuda Bay and Tangelo Twist, it becomes a splashy birthday card for my nephew.

  • There are many ways to adhere the Striped Scallop die cut to the card base.  My personal preference is adding tiny dots of Liquid Multipurpose Glue with a Paper-Piercing Tool (dedicated exclusively for glue) to the back.  I especially like that it’s forgiving if you are off a “smidge.”

  • A zippy piece of patterned paper from Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper lines the Medium Whisper White Envelope.  It mirrors the scallops of the card in an artsy way!


  • Here’s Wednesday’s mosaic card using the same die, in case you missed it.  Details here.

  1. Great video Mary! Thank you!

  2. Mary, Your mosaic cards are an inspiration. I like the idea of using the die cut with white on white to look like embossing. There is so much flexibility in color choices and designs with this idea.
    My favorite Stampin-Up blue is Soft Sky. It is a gentle color and is complimented with so many other colors such as Sahara Sand or So Saffron.
    Thank you for all of your great ideas and videos.

  3. Mary ,this is a beautiful,stunning card. Just alter the colors & so suitable for so many types of cards. thank you for the inspiration..

  4. Thank you Mary for sharing the video. I love your projects and cards..thank you again..

  5. I’m loving the Bermuda Bay! Depending on what colors it is paired with, there is a warmth to the color or it can be a bright color. It seems very versatile.

  6. Mary, YOU always think of the COOLEST designs and color combinations! LOVE them both! Thanks for your inspiration!

  7. Chris . . . theres plenty of time to still order before SAB ends . . . enabling . . .

  8. Thanks for your feedback, Jennifer!

  9. Thanks, Michelle. I keep changing my mind, too!

  10. What a great card and video!! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Oh, please don’t make me choose, Mary! They are both fabulous! I almost said the second one and then changed my mind.

  12. While I like both cards, my heart goes to the one with the butterfly and antique brad. Thank you for sharing these projects!

  13. I really like these two cards. If I would have seen this before placing my Sale-a-bration order, that die would have been part of it 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!!

  14. Its a die cut (Striped Scallop Thinlits Die) layered (adhered) over the card base. I hope that answers your question, Sherry. Thanks!

  15. Thanks, Maria. Frankly, the rug is what got all this started!

  16. Yes, this passion for stamping can be creating (and enabling), Joann!

  17. I, too, had not thought of this die until I saw your video. Just now ordered the die! Now, I can’t wait to play with it.

  18. Mary, what fun cards to make and also to receive. It’s like playing with a very colorful puzzle, the design and color choices are endless. I love how you were able to recreate that fantastic pattern in the picture of the rug you showed on your previous post using this design.
    Thank you so much for sharing this truly fun and beautiful card.

  19. Hi Mary, Love both of your cards, but I’m kind of partial to the more muted colors. Both lovely! I did have a question: Did you layer the cardstock “framework” of the die onto the cardstock as a separate element? (Hope that makes sense to you.) Thanks for the inspiration. I may now just “need” that die! 😉

  20. Please tell your husband, Susan, its good therapy and makes you much more fun to be around. Works!

  21. Mary I never had any desire to own this die till I saw your video! My husband says I need to stop checking your blog Ü.

  22. Thanks, Robbye. I plan to experiment much more! M

  23. Thanks for the video Mary, what a creative use of that thinlit. I really think your choice of colors was spot on.

  24. Thanks, Dori! I liked the first one best . . . until I did the second one. Such fun and a technique anyone can do!

  25. I really love this one with the bold colours. What a fantastic masculine card! It almost makes me want to buy this die!! Thanks for the great idea.

  26. I like thm both! Couldn’t decide which one was cuter. Love the bright colored one for a masculine card and the softer one could go so many directions from birthday to sympathy with a few minor additions. Thanks so much for sharing Mary!

  27. Thanks, Kadie. I sure appreciate your daily comments! See you later this a.m. for a little crafting time.

  28. Who wouldn’t want to receive that totally ‘hip’ birthday card. Great Job my friend!
