Food spotlight week 2

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!

Wow! Things are crazy here lately. Thank you to everyone who took advantage of the Thanksgiving sales! Half of the orders shipped out yesterday and I am hoping to have the rest shipped out today. It still hurts when I bend too much or lift heavy things, but I am now feeling much better and finally feel like my energy has come back. But again, it's only been 3 weeks since my surgery and the doctor said it could take the full 6 weeks to fully recover.

Anyway, this week's Product Spotlight is a continuation of the "Food" Category (in honor of all of the food we ate for Thanksgiving and will eat over the next few weeks for the Holidays)!

All "Food" category stamps are on sale 25% off!
Make sure to check out the awesome sales below from the DT to showcase some of the Food images.

There are a few releases this week:
Oh my! Have I been busy getting ready for the High Hopes release Tonight!
The sneak peeks have begun on the High Hopes Challenge Blog.
As High Hopes loads the stamps to their website, I will be following along and adding them to the store as well! I think I counted 136 stamps with this release (including sentiments)!!!

I also have restocks of High Hopes that will be loaded today as well.
The Greeting Farm also has a release tomorrow.
I have the new stamps in stock and will add them tomorrow morning.

CC Designs has a release soon.
I need to check the date of the release, but I have the stamps in stock and will add them on release day (will post when they are available).

Now here are the DT samples with the Food category images...
Vicky has used Lynette Collecting her vegetables by Sarah Kay to cover a dairy for 2011 for her Step Mum. She wanted to keep it flat as she will be covering it in clear plastic to keep it from wear and tear, but she knew it would not photograph easily if she added it now. The papers are the gorgeous Capella from Basic Grey. The flower is from Prima, and she has added a spacer and brad, the small brown brads are added to the top piece of the diary. She has used Cluny lace and brown grosgrain ribbon in the centre to give defination to the two papers. The image has been cut with nestibilities labels 8 and the circle sentiment with circles large and small. The image has been coloured in distressed inks.

She decided to use the Cafe Ian from TGF for her image on her easel card. She also used some Basic Grey - Olivia DP and her favorite crocheted ribbon in ivory. Added a sentiment and used her labels fifteen nesties to create her card.

Jeanette used one of the adorable Sweet November Christmas images: Cookies & Milk Boy. She colored it up with Copic Sketch Markers The senitment is by Whiff of Joy and the designed paper is from Kaiser Crafts Carnival pad. The bow was made with the Bow Easy.

Happy stamping and shopping!!

Product Spotlight-Texture it (11/15)

Welcome back to Stamp and Create!
Before we get to this week's Product Spotlight, we have some new stamps and a shipping updates...
**Shipping Update**
All orders received by last Friday morning shipped out on Friday. My mom was in town and helped me pull all of the products, then I sat at the dining room table packaging them up. And my husband took them to the post office for me.
I am still on a "lifting restriction" so orders will take me much longer to fill this week as well.
So please bare with me during my recovery from surgery.
But all orders will have an little gift inside as a token of my appreciation for your patience!

**New Products**
I have had a TON of new products that arrived, but I just didn't feel well enough to add to the store. I have finally added them...

with some Sweet November

and some new Wild Rose Studio Fairies (which I used on my card today).

Now it's time for our new Product Spotlight...
This week's spotlight is on Texture/Applique items
On sale for 25% off!!

Here are the DT samples using some of the "texture" products on their cards...

I used the new Wild Rose Studio Ella with Wand, some Basic Grey Jovial DP, Pink Ric Rac and lace, Basic Grey Buttons, Stickles, and Liquid Applique.

Jeanette used this adorable Wild Rose Studio image! She added liquid applique to the bottom of the coat, the pom-pom and the snowflakes and cotton white flock to the sleeves and hat cuffs. She also added some stickles to the ground. The DP is Kaiser Craft Carnival.


Chris used Penguin's Winter Fun from Whiff of Joy. She colored it with copics and added liquid applique and diamond stickles for dimension and sparkle. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Jovial and Basic Grey Olivia. The bow is created with the bow easy and burgundy silk ribbon from May Arts. The 1/2 circle panel is cut out using the classic circle spellbinders.

Vicky has coloured Merry Season from Sweetpea in Copics. The papers are Kaiser Craft - Tis' the Season which have gorgeous textured sheets. To add the glitter as an alternative to stickles She added Liquid pearls in platinum to where she wanted highlighted as snowflakes and then sprinkled glitter over it. The ribbon is organza and the sentiment has been cut out using circular nestablities.

Running a bit late!

I'm running a little late today because of Halloween last night. I didn't have the chance to put the new product spotlight stamps on sale or even make up my sample card for this week. Not to mention blog hopping on all of the entries for last month's challenge. Therefore, the product spotlight post and challenge/winner post will be posted tomorrow.

In the mean time, the Halloween stamps are still on sale. Many of the stamps will be discontinued for the season, so grab them while you can!

Be back tomorrow...
