Q: What did the wandering crab say when he finally made it back to the ocean?

A:  Long time, no SEA!  As a Hostess set, the Make a Splash stamp set is often overlooked.  It easily lends itself to puns and riddles and you know how those crack me up!  But, its many elements would be great for a succulent terrarium card, a fishbowl or a bowl of floating flowers.  Consider combining it with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set you may have earned FREE during Sale-A-Bration.  To achieve the look of seaweed on the crab card, roll a marble (or marbles) in your choice of re-inkers (consider the retiring In Colors).  Watch me demonstrate this technique in the Stamp with Gloria Facebook Live video dated 04-28-2020.  The stamp set is featured on page 73 of the Mini catalog – take a look before it’s gone!  Subscribe and ‘like’ me on Facebook, YouTube and my blog (stampwithgloria.com). 


Do I have you covered for Fishing and Golfing?!

One Hull of a Day!  I can’t help myself with puns!  These simple cards combine the Country Club DSP and By the Dock Bundle.  Layering vibrant cardstock colors using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies really make the oars POP!  View my 03-22-2020 Facebook Live video for the techniques used.  I created the ‘punny’ sentiment in Word, then printed a sheet of sayings for making multiple cards.  Subscribe and LIKE me on Facebook, YouTube and my blog (stampwithgloria.com).

The Clubhouse opens April 24th!

In Wisconsin, the golf courses are allowed to reopen on April 24th.  Praise the Lord!  Now, my husband can go golfing and leave me in peace.  I’m sure there are other wives that feel the same.  I had a little fun with the Country Club Suite Bundle (above) as well as the other golf-themed cards (below).  Be sure to watch my Stamp with Gloria Facebook Live video from Sunday, April 19th for tips on creating this assortment Clubhouse cards.  Remember to subscribe and ‘like’ my Facebook pages.  Not on Facebook?  No worries, visit Gloria Helmbrecht on YouTube where the videos are (or will be) published soon.  If you like the Clubhouse stamp set or the Country Club Suite Bundle, don’t delay.  They might not be available in the new catalog.  NOTE:  The Assorted Googly Eyes are on sale now for $2.40!  Get ’em while you can!
