Welcome 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:
If SOMEONE used her SAMJ (oh, all right, Stamp-a-ma-jig) that “beautiful” would have been straight. Instead, it is beautifully hand made 🙂
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.
Got a little pierce-happy but it was worth it…and the little holes made a perfect place to run some Linen thread through to balance the opposite side.
If you need a box to go with that sassy card, I’ve got just the thing:
I was feeling a little continental…don’t know if this is more Scandinavian or Swiss, but when I started playing with the long stamps from Mosaic Madness I started seeing ribbon and it didn’t take much to put together a belly band. (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.)
The Mosaic punch can be a medallion, a flower, a tag…you name it! Just punch out a bunch of them and start playing.
For the next stop of the tour, you’ll be heading over to see what madness Robin has created! Enjoy!!

I especially like the box. And I’m gonna hold your big shot for ransom some day…
You’d better be nice cause you gave me a key to your house….
Anne, LOVE your projects and colors. Great work, I love that yours are kinda ‘out of the box’, even though you actually USED a box… haha
Thanks, Tamra – you think the same way that I do. In the box, out of the box, next to the box, it’s all good!
I just checked out your pinterest boards. You have a peeps board and so do I. How funny is that!?!
Peeps! They are a tradition in my house but not in the traditional way…lots of Peep jokes!!
