Hello and thanks for stopping by today! For the June Be Inspired Blog Hop we are creating projects that are inspired by fashion. I have chosen to use a new product to get a look of a mosaic. When thinking about what sort of mosaic card to create, it was a quick decision to grab the Beautiful Layers Thinlits dies, as there is a wonderful new intricate die that has loads of possibilities. Check below to find all of the links to the Design Team’s projects, you will love what they have created to share with you!

Scraps of Basic Black and Whisper White paper for sentiment
I am inspired in all areas of my crafting, especially crochet. Crochet is my easy going hobby. I’ve been working on a mandala series for my son’s blanket for a very long time, hahaha, and love the intricate patterns. Here are a few mandala examples to give you an idea of what I am referring to…
Creating a mandala focal point
So many choices in creating a focal point can make one’s head spin. The good news is that this wonderful die works very well for die cutting every sort of paper. I tried it on vellum and standard card stock until at last settling on an ink blended scrap of Glossy White paper. If you haven’t used it yet, Glossy White paper blends wonderfully when an inked up sponge touches it. It may not appear so now, but I started coloring the paper with Coastal Cabana ink and worked in Granny Apple Green. Mixing these two colors gave a nice variation that can’t be achieved with just plain card stock.
The sentiment was created by die cutting 3 times out of white card stock and gluing them together to form one nice, solid word die cut. I grabbed a strip of black card stock from my scrap bin and it worked out great to help the sentiment stand out.
Please be sure to visit all of the beautiful blogs for loads of creative inspiration!
