Getting Ready for Christmas!?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back again today with some more shares of past Holiday retreat stamping. Below I have just a few of our “Gift Tags” that we made last year. We also decorated a cute tin to hold all of their tags!

These were made with the Stocking Stamp set and dies which have been added to our Annual catalog!! I love that, it gives me a chance to show you even more things to do with the items you’ve already purchased.

Our next grouping of stamped goodies comes from our 2015 Holiday Retreat!! Oh what fun these were … might have even been the hit of the retreat … GIFT CARD ENVELOPES!!

I found a great pattern so these were super simple to create, and we just jazzed up the outsides so they would also be a hit from anyone who received them. Just adorable!

You never know what we’ll be making at our retreats, always something new and fun… you’ll have to join us sometime.  I have a new attendee this year, everyone else has been there before … some, several times (One hasn’t missed one yet!) We also have someone from as far away as Oklahoma!!

We have a blast at our stamping retreats, and I can’t wait to get this Holiday Retreat started! This time next week, we’ll be stamping away!

Thanks for joining me here today on my blog. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Remembering …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

While I’m finishing up the cutting, packing, and extra touches for my stamping retreat next weekend, I thought I would share some creations from our last Holiday Retreat … these stamp sets and dies are still available in the catalog!

This was the hit of the retreat!! So simple yet so elegant. This stamp set and coordinating framelits are in our annual catalog this year.

I will share more in the coming days, plus some new samples to share.

Thanks for popping in.

Season to Sparkle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post to showcases a versatile stamp set that incredibly I do not own …Season to Sparkle.  You can find this bundle on page 43 of the Holiday Catalog.

This shows 3 different holidays that can be celebrated with this set. What would you make? If you have this set, send me a pic at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com and I’d be happy to share it with everyone!

Thanks much for dropping in …

Have a happy hump day!

Fresh Fig Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share the last of my cards from the Snowflake Sentiments Showcase, and it will be a vertical card verses the horizontal layout I have been using.

My color pallet is very simple for this card with Fresh Fig and Whisper White with a touch of Silver … oh so classy! You can see how sweetly the silver snowflakes fit into the die cut edgelit.

The snowflakes were embellished with a pretty bow made from the Fresh Fig 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon. Just the sound of Fig reminds me of Christmas, and our greeting “Wrapped in the Warmth of Christmas” brings back memories of Figgy Pudding (well … at least in the movies!) lol

The greeting was heat embossed with Silver emboss powder to coordinate with our Silver Foil paper. To add a touch of texture, I used the “Softly Falling” embossing folder.

Wow … that’s it.  A simply elegant style card created with the warm color of fig and a touch of silver glam!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my blog. It’s greatly appreciated. I have listed the ingredients to the card below.

Have a special day ~
