RemARKably Mad Mosaics

Maui Stamper RemARKable Stamp of the Month tourWelcome to the first Stamp of the Month tour for the Brand New Deliciously JUICY 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!!  Are you as excited as I am about this fabulous assortment of paper crafting goodness??  I hope so!

The June Stamp of the Month is Mosaic Madness.  It’s especially juicy because of all the coordinating products that carry the Mosaic theme:  the Mosaic punch, the Mosaic TIEF, and the Quatrefoil Fancy DSP.

(If you are not a regular reader at the Maui Stamper, I apologize.  You should know that I am a very lazy girl and I get tired of typing things like TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER (TIEF), DESIGNER SERIES PAPER (DSP) and FIRM FOAM INK PAD (FFIP).  Please make a note of these abbreviations.)

I’ve done a number of projects using the products from the suite, but for our blog tour I wanted to try using the images in new ways.  First up – le card:

The Mosaic punch fits perfectly along the scallop border from the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die!   There are 7 of them, with the top and bottom trimmed to fit the card.

If you need a box to go with that sassy card, I’ve got just the thing:

(Hint: if you are adding paper layers to a belly band, I recommend you score the plain belly band first, then add the trim on top for a smoother fit.)
