SAB ends Tomorrow!!!

It's hard to believe that SAB is almost over!  It runs for three months and it seems like it just started!

There have been a total of three releases.  Here's the last release.  It's items from the regular catalogs.

These are some awesome products!  The Red Rhinestones are callingmy hame.  I'm working on getting an order placed yet tonight.

If you need help ordering, just let me know.  I can place anorder for you, or you can go online and order yourself.  Either way, the order comes directly to your house.  

Until next time...Stampin' Always,

Tulips and Milk Cans

Another Sunday. Sometimes all days seem like Sundays, or Saturdays.  With everyone home it's hard to tell what day it is. The online orders at my grocery store have calmed down lately. It was the lull before the storm.  They are upping the number of orders considerably.  I was told in a few weeks, all stores are supposed to be at 60 orders per day!!!  That's insane!  We are rushing to get some people "trained" to help.  There have been four of us since November, plus, 2 relatively newer and that's it.  No way can we do 60 orders weekly just us.  I'm thinking nightmare.

I've been in my craft room lately, but. not making any cards.  I've actually been cleaning, and that's very long over due.  Pretty much done with that now, so I actually made something.

I mixed together Winds of Change and Country Home stamp sets for this card.  Yes, I had to fussy cut out the tulips, sorry about that, but there's only four.

For the tulips, I separated them and adhered them, one by one, to the back of the milk can by using old Washi tape.  This way, it was easy to reposition the tulips in the way I wanted. And, we all have leftover Washi tape to use up.  

The colors are two that I normally wouldn't put together.  Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green.  They work good together.  And I love pink tulips.

The sentiment came from the Country Home set.  It is actually Happy Harvest Blessings.  The harvest doesn't pertain to now, so I left it off.  I inked the Happy with my Memento ink pad very carefully, to not get the harvest.  I stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White.  I did the same with the Blessings.  I got very lucky and it turned out the first time.  No one could have been more surprised by that then me.  

Stay safe.

Another fun present!

Today I got another toy to play with.  It's the Brother Scan n Cut machine.  I was trying to be good and get my work done before I broke it out.  So, my stamp room got cleaned a little bit more and now I'm doing my blog.  After this...it's coming out of the box!

I wanted to share another birthday card and present I received last week.  The stamp set used is Pocket of Sunshine.  It's retired, but aren't the sunglasses cute?  Australians call sunglasses Sunnies.  Isn't that super cute?!  

The dies are Pocket Dies and are still available.  The bling on the pocket is perfect.  It's just the perfect amount of bling.

Look at the matching bag.  Again, just enough bling.  The pocket is the perfect size for the bag.  Almost like it was made like that!!  Haha, I'm sure it was.  And it was filled with yummy chocolate.

Do you recognize the base?  It's Dapper Denim.  I miss that color.  Unfortunately, it retired last year.  I wasn't a favorite color at first, but it definately grew on me.  I'm not sure what pink the sunglasses are exactly.  My guess would be Flirty Flamingo.  What would you guess?

Birthday Present

Last weekend was my birthday.  Besides the fact that we were all together, it didn't seem like there was a whole lot to celebrate.  Definately couldn't do anything like I had hoped.  Oh well, maybe next year.

I wanted to show you what my friend made for my birthday.

This card is totally adorable.  She used the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set.  That's still available for one more week.  You can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase.  

The cake pedestal was cut from the Galvanized Foil Paper, I think.  Anyway, I like the look of it.  The cake is definately Petal Pink.  And the card base and flowers are Rich Razzleberry.

The DSP I do recognize, but don't recall the name of it.  But, it is definately SU!   

Now, here's the coordinating present.  It's an embroidery hoop.  I know SU! had some a little while ago, but I never actually seen one in person.  As you can see, everything else is from SU!  Either way, Love it!   

I planning on hanging this in my stamp room, just have to find the right spot.

Until next time...Stampin' Always,

Springtime Tulips

I will admit, this past week actually went by pretty fast.  We had to move Megan out of her dorm on Friday.  That was a bittersweet day.  Alyssa was actually working a lot. After not being busy, that was a relief to her.  Chris worked from home all week and will continue to this coming week.  I have a feeling it will continue for a few more weeks.  As for me, I also continue to work.  Being at a grocery store, I don't think it will be closing.  The operating hours have been shortened, but we have been very busy.  

We are getting by and hope you are too.

It's time for some springtime tulips.

I love this stamp set.  And it comes with a punch!  I LOVE punches.  So super easy to use.

The tulips, stems and leaves have been stamped for a while, just waiting to be used.  The card was designed around the square-ish embossed piece of Mint Macaron.  I found it amongst my scraps and thought I just HAD to use it.  

It's offset by the rectangle piece of Whisper White.  They are adhered toward the opposite ends of the card to balance it out.

Sorry to say, the tulip builder punch only punches out the large tulip and leaf/petal.  The smaller tulips, leaf and stems are cut out by hand.  At least they weren't too detailed so they were easy to cut out.  

Stay safe out there.

Sailing Home to You

Today, I got to play in floral in the morning.  Not a huge fan of that, but the regular person does deserve a vacation.  After that I was my usual, online ordering.  We only had 8 orders, that's nothing from the weekend, but still a lot for a Tuesday.  Slowly, we are getting back in the product we ran out of last weekend.  Produce is almost back to normal, but still no chicken, toilet tissue or paper towels.  I haven't seen shelves so bare since Shopko closed last May.  

Back to a masculine card.  Sailing Home is perfect for that.  

I used the Stitched Shapes for the top square, and just cut a mat for the bottom.  By using a mat, it grounded the square on the dsp.

The square is sponged using Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.  Love the look!  Don't forget those darn seagulls either. 

Thick Whisper White is what the base is.  After I had the card adhered together and completed, I felt the white was too bright.  Crumb Cake would have been perfect too.  But it was too late for that.  Instead, I used the Stampin' Sponges and sponged Night of Navy on the Whisper White.  And I actually like the outcome.  I like the imperfections sponging gives.

The "To You" is from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  It's plain and simple and can be used for any occassion.  This would be a great birthday card or a Father's Day card.  That's coming up pretty quick.

Amour Tri Fold Card

Who's all done with hearing about the Coronavirus?  I am!!  The online orders at work have literally exploded.  Yesterday, we completed 25 orders.  Sometimes we get that many total order in a week, in a single day was absolutely crazy.  We were running very low on many foods at work.  Hopefully that will be rectified very quickly.  Megan is home from college for at least a month.  We just found out tonight, my husband is working from home for at least 2 weeks!  Yikes!  It's going to be a long two weeks.  

I was given a sample of this card for a swap.  Time to bring it to life.  Since I was getting bored with doing just normal fold card, this was perfect.  It looks normal from the front, but once it opens...SURPRISE!

Did you expect this?  I left my card inside pretty plain, but you can really jazz it up!  The card is Pool Party that is 11 x 4 1/4.  It's scored at     1 1/4,  2 1/4  and 2 3/4.  I added a base of Petal Pink before it was adhere to the card base.  It needed to be grounded and it really worked.  

The base Pool Party is hand stamped using the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set.  It's stamped in Gray Granite.  After I adhere the folded top, I felt like it was lacking something.  We did this for club and I finally figured it out.  I had them adhere a layer of vellum over the stamped Pool Party.  It softened up the stamped images and looked awesome.  Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to take a picture of their card, but trust me.  It made a huge difference.  The club people agreed with me. 

The Amour was cut from Champagne Foil Sheets.  The card needed some shine to the front.  Make sure to adhere the R to the edge of the Whisper White square.  Otherwise, it might rip off by mistake and you definately don't want that to happen.

If you needed a smaller size card, it would be super cute to give the folded part only.  It doesn't have to be adhered to a base. 

This is actually an easy card for the dramatic effect it gets. Wouldn't you love to receive a card like this?
