I used the new hostess set from Stampin’ Up! called Bloom With Hope to create a card to share with you today. I thought the images would work well for the faux tile technique. I created a photo tutorial for this fun technique awhile back and you can see it here.
My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #119.
I started by scoring a Very Vanilla panel at 1″, 2″, 3″ and 4″. Then I turned the panel 90 degrees and scored between the lines it in various places, no specific measurements, just tried to come close to the look of the sketch.
I carefully stamped the images from the Bloom With Hope stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inks on the panel. Then I inked up part of the sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set (used a Post-it Note to cover the area that I didn’t want inked) with Baked Brown Sugar ink and stamped it on the panel.
Then I sponged the little tiles with Baked Brown Sugar ink and patted the entire panel with VersaMark Ink. I sprinkled Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the panel and heat embossed it. I adhered the embossed panel to a panel of Baked Brown Sugar card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive (see the how to video here), then to a Crisp Cantaloupe card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I colored a Very Vintage Designer Button with my Natural Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker, then colored the curly edges with my Bronze Stampin’ Blendabilities Marker. I tied a piece of Gold Baker’s Twine through the button and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.
I kept the inside fairly simple by stamping the image from the Bloom With Hope stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe ink on a Very Vanilla panel.

Oh Amy, this card is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing the tutorial too. I will have to give this technique a try. I also like the way you colored the button. It really matches the card well. Nicely done!
Thanks so much Terri! It’s a fun and easy technique, have fun using it!
Such a pretty card! Love this technique you shared 🙂 These colors lend themselves so beautifully to this vintage-y look. I can’t wait to try and color buttons, yours came out so awesome!
Thanks Jill! I just started coloring on the back of the button until I found the mix that I thought looked best and went with that. 🙂
Oooh, that is a GREAT tip! I’d be the one to color the front and not be happy, thanks Amy 🙂
You are welcome. I initially was going to start coloring the front, then realized that I didn’t know what colors to use so (thankfully) I flipped it over and played a little until I found the colors that I liked best. 🙂
Such a pretty card! I love how soft and subtle it is!
