6x6 Stationery Set

DSCN3200

DSCN3202
Hi Everyone! I'm loving the bright colors in the new Quartrefancy Specialty Designer Paper available May 31st. So Summery! (130141). It's part of the Quartre product suite that's all about the Mosiac motif!

This 6" x 6" stationery sets goes together in a breeze. A perfect little thank you gift for a teacher, office co-worker, or such!

Take a 12" x 12" sheet of designer paper. Fold it in half, unfold, fold in half the other way. This will create 4 (four), 6x6 panels.

DSCN3204
Trim the bottom two panels as shown. Trim diagonally,corner to corner of the panel.

Another way to explain it is that if you flip it..it looks like a house!

DSCN3206
Simple fold it up to create pockets. Use Tombo Multiadhesive along the fold lines to secure the pockets.
DSCN3205I placed two cards on the left and stamped matching evelopes on the right. The Stampa-ma-jig helped for perfect stamp alignment for nesting images.

Masculine May Swap Cards

DSCN3196Hi Everyone! Four of us participated in the team swap cards. Theme: Masculine May. Above is Summers'. Love, love, love the bowtie look using triangles and circles!

DSCN3197

Here's Davette's. It's a flap card. The chocolate chip card stock folds out to the right to open the card. Love the interactiveness of this. Brown tones and Island Indigo colors are totally masculine.

Of course what color says "Boy card!" if not blue?! Lisa's lighthouse card reflects light by her use of shimmer paint. Sparkly goodness!

And lastly mine. LOL I added Dazzling Details then stood up the card. A came back a couple hours later to snap the picture and gravity took it's toll. I just had to share. I had the DD on just the frosting and every other section. Too funny..Learn from me! let it dry first.

I cut 2" strips of the Naturals Collection Designer Series Paper Pack using the matching River Rock color and card stock. Adhered diagonally then embossed with the New Mosaic Embossing Folder available in the 2013-2014 starting May 31st. Sentiment from Best of Birthdays. Using Crumb Cake ink and a Sponge Dauber, I inked over the embossed cardstock to pop the mosaic pattern.
