Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I have two beautiful cards created by two of our retreat guests! Each retreat we host a card swap/contest … they make the cards, they vote, and the winner gets a Stampin’ Up! Gift Certificate from me.
Our two retreat guests featured today, both used the Butterfly Basics stamp set. Let’s begin with Peggy K’s card – This was Peggy’s first Stampin’ Retreat of mine and she came all the way from Oklahoma!
A simply beautiful card … I love the pop of color Peggy used by adding her blue butterfly. I’m not sure if that is Lost Lagoon but I can see she used the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow. Fabulous color combination!
Did you know that the Butterfly Basic stamp set bundles with the Butterflies Thinlets? Remember, that even though the stamp sets and thinlets will carry over into the new catalog … they will NOT be bundled, so if you like it … purchase it before May 31st.
Our next card comes from Sandy B. and she has attended 6 of our annual retreats; both the Spring and Holiday retreats!
Sandy also used the Butterfly Basics Stamp set and Thinlits Bundle, however her pop of color comes from the Two Step Stampin’ stamp set; Watercolor Wings. This stamp set also coordinates with the Butterfly Thinlits … gotta love the way Stampin’ Up! coordinates several different products to make our purchases a real value!
The black die cut butterfly that tops the “watercolor” butterfly is very striking and really draws the eye to the center of the card.
We love hosting the card swap at our annual retreats … everyone always goes home with extra cards with totally different styles and stamp sets. They are a blast, and if you haven’t tried one yet, you should think about it!!
AMD … said “I can’t believe the projects get better at each retreat! We enjoy meeting all the new people and have so much fun.”
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me, I hope the ladies cards inspired you as much as they have inspired me! I love my job! It is all about sharing and building relationships.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
