Welcome to the Collage Curios RemARKable Stamp of the Month tour! Whether you’re just beginning the tour here with the Maui Stamper or have been halfway across the USA with our many talented paper artists, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself today. Those of you in New England deserve a blog tour after strugging through all the weather that has come your way this weekend!
The Collage Curios set is made up of primarily small images, and my first inclination would be to go small – 3×3 cards, milk carton favor boxes, or even jewelry crossed my mind. The more I thought about it, the more I felt challenged to make a card that would still spotlight those small images but somehow find a balance. Tell me what you think:
DO YOU GET IT? There’s a little joke here…
- Collage Curios and Delightful Dozen stamp sets
- Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Primrose Petals card stock
- Crumb Cake and Primrose Petals FFIP (Firm Foam Ink Pads)
- Dazzling Details
- 1 inch circle and 7/8 inch scallop circle punches
- Big Shot, Delicate Designs TIEF and Delicate Doilies Sizzlet

I love that little bee…my Valentine…
I couldn’t stop at just one card!
- Collage Curios and Petite Pairs stamp sets
- Calypso Coral and Chocolate Chip FFIP
- Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake card stock
- Chocolate Chip and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers
- Linen Thread
- 1 inch circle punch
- New distressing tool!
- Color Spritzer
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
- Stampin’ Sponge
- Dazzling Details
- Rhinestone Jewels
You know, I kept going with that “More is More” kinda thing here. The little hot air balloons just naturally floated across the page, but then the Color Spritzer wanted in, and the Crumb Cake card base wanted a little bit of spongin’ texture, and before I knew it there were jewels and Dazzling Details and we were off to the races! Kinda fun, though…
Now float on over to Robin Merriman’s Trinity Design Studios and see what she has come up with….she’s a talented stamper and I’m sure you’ll love wht she has done! Don’t forget to leave a little blog love (comments) as you do – all of these hard-working bloggers will thank you!

Anne – love the cards. AND love the photos of your beautiful family! Miss you.
Miss you too Sharon. Thinking good thoughts that you will be back on Maui soon for a visit!
Love your projects especially how you added Dazzling Details to the wings of the bee.
Dazzling Details is a Mr. Maui Stamper Approved Form of Glitter and I should use it more often! Thanks, Susan!
Ha ha ha!! and…float on over! Very cute cards & I love the bling!! The bees are the best!
I love how our minds work the same way, and yeah, I’m partial to bees. And roosters. But this set didn’t have a rooster – too bad.
Everything above (wedding pennants, leis) are beautiful, and then the picture of the bride (and her parents) gorgeous. She truly looks like a princess; absolutely beautiful! God bless your beautiful day and celebration and the lifetime of “happily ever after!” 🙂
Thank you, Donna – it was a beautiful day in so many ways. Carol and Clarence really worked hard on getting the details right, and they approached the day with a wonderful “let’s celebrate with the ones we love” attitude. With that in their hearts, the day was really joyful from start to finish.
