Guest Stampers: Trio of Christmas Stockings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you some more of our Swap Cards from the Holiday Retreat. Our swaps are done by our guests, and when they swap they are entered into the card contest and a chance to win a Gift Certificate from me. It’s a lot of fun, and the best part about swapping … you get to go home with that many more cards!!

All three of the cards I’m sharing with you today were made with the “Hang Your Stockings” Stamp set and Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies.  This is one you can bundle and Save 10% on.

Let’s begin with Linda S.  This was her first retreat but you would never have guessed it by her swap.

She used the Christmas Stocking Thinlits die to create both the stocking and the greeting. These are highlighted by having the beautiful designer paper behind it. You’ll find several great patterns in the “Warmth & Cheer” Designer Series Paper Stack.

Our next guest stamper is Marge G.  Marge has attended all of our Holiday Retreats only missing the Spring because she was a little snowbird.

Marge started her card with the “This Christmas” Designer paper that can be found in the Annual Catalog (our big one) not the Holiday catty.  Marge also used the thinlits to create her card, and then she added a little sponging to really make it pop!  Don’t you love how she used the snowflake cut out from the stocking on her card … no wasted space here. 

The last of the stocking cards was created by Abby H.   This was Abby’s first retreat and she was also our youngest guest (her Mom & Sister have been here many times before).  We have several Mother / Daughter attendee’s … it is a great getaway to have fun together and bond.

Abby not only used the thinlits, but she stamped her stockings! Now we get to see how cute the coordinating stamp set is, and what a nice job Abby did stamping and creating her card.  They are all lined up with the Brick background and ready for Santa!

For me … Everyone is a winner because they get to go home with extra cards and each card has a different style than your own.  Oh yes, and I get to keep a set … THANK YOU LADIES!!

I hope you have enjoyed the trio of stocking cards today, and that it inspires you to grab that ink, pick up your stamps and begin having some “you” time and releasing your creativity!

Thanks for stopping by …

Have a great day!
