Bow Easy Product Spotlight

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.

We are excited to have a new Product Spotlight for you!
This week's spotlight is:
On Sale through Sunday for 25% off
(Limit 3 per customer)

The Bow Easy is the best tool around for creating the perfect bow.

Our awesome Designer Jeanette created a Video Tutorial awhile ago using the Bow Easy.

And our former Guest Designer Sharon created a Pictorial Tutorial as well (Sharon shows a "double bow" in her tutorial.

To showcase the Bow Easy, each of our Designers have created a card using a bow created with the Bow Easy...

Chris used the Wags n Whiskers, Say a Prayer image, which is available as a digi or a rubber stamp. She also used the bow easy, May Arts Mauve silk ribbon, and Kaiser Craft Blush Pearls

Jeanette used one of the newly released Sweet November stamps: Lilliane to create a fun tag card. She added two layers of ribbon: white crochet lace and wrinkled white ribbon which she tied in a bow using the Bow Easy.

Heidi used Peeking Kitty from the latest High Hopes Release. She used also a Bow Easy to create a cute double bow with May Arts White Silk Ribbon. She used Basic Grey Max and Whiskers Design paper which is perfect for animal lovers. The accents are Prima Flat Flowers with the Flower 2 Spacer with small pearl brads and a standing cat charm.

I used one of the new CC Designs called Swiss Pixie Violet with Key. I also used some Basic Grey Olivia DP, Bow Easy, Stickles, and Wrinkle Ribbon.

Vicky has used Swan Princess from Kraftin Kimmie. The papers are Kaiser Kraft Utopia, bow easy, stickles, and rhinestone dots.

I'll be back later with the winner of the Gift Certificate from last week's orders.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping and shopping!!

Pray for Luke - Card Drive

I have posted a card drive for my little friend Luke on my blog.

Luke was my son's best from when we lived in Jacksonville. He will be 6 next month.
Luke had a 30 minute seizure on New Year's Eve from Spinal Meningitis.
He now has a long road of recovery. He does not have any movement on his left side, uncontrolled movement on his right side, and speech issues.

You can read about it here.

Would you like to win a $25 Gift Certificate?

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!

As I posted the other day, my family and I are in the process of moving to a new State.
This move will require times that I will need to travel, spend time changing my business over to a new State, packing, moving, and unpacking, etc...

Needless to say, I am going to be a little busy at times.

Since I had to go out of town this weekend, I don't really have time to put a Product Spotlight on sale. Therefore, I decided to offer a $25 Gift Certificate instead!!

All orders placed from today through Sunday will be entered into a drawing for a $ 25 Gift Certificate!!

**Belles 'n Whistles stamps have arrived and are now shipping!**

Even though we don't have a specific product to showcase today, the Design Team still has some cards to share to give you some ideas for Valentine's Day and more!!

You can see most of the Valentine's Day/Love images that we carry here.
Heidi used Hare's my Heart from the latest High Hope's release. She also used some Kaiser Craft Pearls and a heart shaped Charm.

Vicky has choosen to spotlight He loves Me by Wags and Whiskers. The papers are Basic Grey Sugar Rush. The lace is her favourite Cluny lace, and the charm heart 2 adorns the flower via a jump ring.

Jeanette has used one of the newly released Whiff of Joy stamps featuring the adorable Henry with Love Balloon! The sweet bow was made super easily by using the Bow Easy!

Chris has used one of the awesome and funky Kenny K stamps...

Chris used the image Troublemaker. Doesn't she look so sassy?! The bow is made using the Bow Easy.

Welcome back to Stamp and Create.

Please bare with me for the next few months. My husband's job has been transferred to Atlanta, Georgia. We are in the process of looking for houses and putting our South Florida home on the market. I will have to travel to Atlanta to look for houses this weekend. In addition, I need to transfer the business to a new state when we move.

Therefore, since I am a "one-woman-operation", please bare with me during our move.
I hope to limit any disruptions to the business, but this will be a hard time for me.

Thank you in advance for your understanding!

Luke was my neighbor and son's best friend when we were in Jacksonville, FL. He is currently in the Hospital for Spinal Meningitis. Please keep him in your prayers.
More details on the card - and pictures of Ryan with Luke - on my blog.
