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).
