The stamp set called Today’s Tiles is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020/2021 Annual Catalog. I have a confession to make. This stamp set was not on my radar for my first order in this catalog but apparently I got my item numbers mixed up and it arrived with that first order. Since it was not planned, I didn’t get the dies (called Field Tiles Dies) but they are now on my list. Sometimes mistakes turn out to be a good thing because I really like this set now.
Today’s Tiles is a two step stamp set. That means it takes two or more stamps to make an image. Here is a big hint. You need a Stamparatus (SAR) to match up this image. I tried to do it using blocks but it was too hard to line up for these old eyes. The SAR made is really easy to do. After I stamped both of the images together I liked it so much I decided to go ahead and make up a bunch of them using different colors. I am sure you will see some of them in the future.
As you can see I had a lot of fun making different color combinations. I think the red and green one looks Christmasy to me and the Smoky Slate and Night Of Navy could definitely be for a masculine card.
I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
Here is a picture of Madelyn at her “kindergarten” class. Schools are not open in Nashville due to COVID 19 so some of their neighbors got together and hired a teacher to help them with online learning. These shirts made me laugh. 2033 seems so far away!! Madelyn is the silly one in the middle.
Here is a picture of Emy on her first day of school in Pre-3 with my son, Zachary. Emy loves to dress up as a princess (as most little girls do).
As a reminder, Sunday was my birthday and I decided to celebrate my birthday with you all week by giving FREE Shipping to all my customers who place a $50 order or more with me using the Hostess Code RMHPRSAM. If you place an order online, I will rebate you the shipping costs by PayPal or if you live locally, I can give you a check. If you need help ordering, let me know and I can place the order for you. Remember, you have to use the Hostess Code in order to receive free shipping. If your order is $150 (excluding tax and shipping) or more, do not use the Hostess Code so that you will get the hostess benefits yourself. If you do that I will still rebate you the shipping. This offer ends on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
This set is not on my radar either, but it sure is pretty. Good to know that you need the Stamparatus. Such a sweet princess
Well, darn it. I thought I could get away without these, but your card and the “extras” are so pretty! I love all the color combos. Your grands are so beautiful! What sweet pictures. (And I just realized I DID have that set on my radar for the “Namaste” sentiment. Thanks for the reminder – and you’re forgiven for enabling.) 😉
Happy Belated Birthday, Susan!! How did I miss your special day?! 😦 I hope that it was truly special, like you 🙂 I love these tiles – and how you did extras in different colours. The pictures of your granddaughters are adorable!
