Happy Mother’s Day!

What happened?!  We blinked and it’s Mother’s Day!  On my 05-03-2020 Facebook Live video, I demonstrated how to create this beautiful corsage.  Be sure to check it out at Stamp with Gloria on Facebook.  After creating the video, I realized the corsage fits perfectly into our Gold Mini Pizza Box.  I mailed one to a friend in Utah who I hope will keep it for herself or share it with her mom this weekend.  Hope your day is special.  Relax and enjoy the moment.  Remember, there is no Facebook Live Sunday, as I will be celebrating Mother’s Day with my family!

Who can resist a Well Dressed man?!

Featuring (once again!), the gorgeous Flowering Foils DSP!  This time, combined with the Well Dressed stamp set offered in the Sale-A-Bration second release.  The set is FREE with a $50 purchase until March 31st, as is the DSP.  This particular DSP pattern makes me think of a crisp, white tailored men’s shirt on a Well Dressed man.  A tri-fold shutter card lends itself well to featuring each component of his wardrobe.  For directions, go to stampingmadly.com.  The ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.  What a fun card – adaptable to any color combination – that men will love!  Visit Stamp With Gloria on Facebook to view my LIVE 03-01-2020 video discussing this and other cards.  See more like this at stampwithgloria.com.


With Sympathy…. The power of your cards


This is a sympathy card I made for my son Corbin.   Corbin has just finished 8 years in The Air Force and he had been home for two weeks when we received a text stating that his best friend from high school had tragically died at age 27.   This boy had been at my house many times and was the youngest in a big family.  Corbin was going to attend the wake and came down with his dress clothes and asked me if I could teach him how to iron them.  My heart broke at the request because I wanted to teach Corbin to iron so he could either be a better man to a spouse someday or be totally self-sufficient.  Instead, it was for the funeral of his childhood friend who had texted him in the Air Force as recent as a couple of weeks before he was killed.   I just had no words.  

After the funeral, Corbin received a card thanking him for his generous contribution and in the note, the mother of my son’s friend told Corbin that he should tell his mother that the card was beautiful and to Thank me for Stampin’ it.   I have to say as much as this mother was torn up in grief at the loss of her baby.  She wanted to Thank “me” for a stamped card.  It is moments like these when you realize how people can humble you.  And also why what we do is so important! 

Remember social media can never take the place of something that you stamp and comes from the heart.
