Morrocan Tiles & Stamp-a-Ma-Jig Tutorial

Blue, white & orange make me think of Morocco, and this set lends itself to a tiled look, so here's the result:
This is a pretty intensive stamping session!  And if you want perfect placement, you'll be using your Stamp-a-ma-jig big time!

What is a Stamp-a-ma-jig?   Put simply, it's a stamp positioner.  

It consists of a handle and a perspex imaging sheet:  

You line up the imaging sheet with the right angles of the handle: 

Then line up your stamp also with the handle and stamp your image onto the sheet: 


Next,  place the imaging sheet over your project so that the image appears exactly where you want it: 

Line up the handle with the imaging sheet:

Remove the imaging sheet being careful not to disturb your project:

 Place your stamp into the right angle of the handle and stamp onto your project: 

 Voila, perfect placement:



In this sample, all of the large mosaics were stamped onto Whisper White scraps and punched out with the mosaic punch, then stuck to the Whisper White card layer that was embossed with the Modern Mosaic folder.  The smaller mosaics were stamped directly onto the card stock using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.

The sentiment comes from Hello Lovely (#130243 in clear, #130240 in wood) and was punched out using the Artisan Label Punch (#130920).  I have also punched a label in Pacific Point cardstock, cut it in half and mounted it to the back of the sentiment top and bottom to make it "pop".

What a great way to get tiles without grout!
Cheers
