Stampin’ Retreat Friday Night Fun

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Once my guests settled into their rooms and meet the other guests, we sit down to dinner. This Friday we did something different … A Picnic Style dinner! Brats and Hamburgers with buns and fixin’s, Potato Salad, Seafood Salad and Chips.

Once we are done eating … we head to the stamp room. The table is set up with all their projects, dimensionals and embellishments! And a “treat” is a must. I used the Mini Jam Jars (now retired) and filled them with Old Fashioned Lemon Drops.

I will share one card from each of our stamp sessions, as I believe the rest should be only for my retreat guests. We’d love for you to join us, because the pictures do not do the retreat justice! The Friday Night stamp session highlighted the “RAINBOW OF HAPPINESS” Bundle.

This card pays homage to the song “You are my Sunshine” …. Thus the Merrry Melody 3-D Embossing Folder. The Rainbow was stamped with Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight … they were inked up, stamped off and then stamped onto the Basic White front. Then fully inked, the “rays” were inked up with Pool Party and stamped over the Pool Party band that was stamped off. Add a little Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.

The sun was created using the “Sharing Sunshine” stamp set (now retired) using the same “stamping off the ink” technique. How cute is this! So much fun and texture on one card.

When our stamping session is over, we head back into the house for some treats, but first a stop into their room to find a special gift ….

I want my guests to feel special … I want to give them the same feeling I get when I am on an Incentive Trip, because, if it’s wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be on those trips. They are so special to me … I wish everyone could come!

Thank you for joining me today, I appreciate your time. Have a wonderful day.

I’ll be going LIVE on my Facebook page tonight at 6:30 pm Central Time… Hope to see you there.

Back Home from our Stampin’ Retreat

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so full of gratitude for the amazing weekend we had for our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat! The weather was windy and rainy but it always seemed to clear when we had to go outside … a true sign if you ask me!

I have a peek into our stamping retreat for you … I will share a bit more in the coming days as well. I will begin with the door tags … Each guest has a name tag on their door so they know which room the will be staying in and they are free to take it home with them. They can easily pop the name off and turn it into a card!

This was created using the Heart and Home Suite of products … The “theme” for our retreat. The Heart and Home designer paper, Flowers Of Home Dies, Heart & Home Doilies in Basic Grey, the White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon which comes from the Artfully Composed suite (pg.32 in Mini), the 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon in Petal Pink which is layered over and the Petal Pink cardstock embossed with the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folders all layered onto a Basic Grey base. I printed each guest’s name onto Basic White Cardtock (from my computer) and punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch (retiring today).

The cup is a food safe cup that has retired from the Stampin’ Up! catalog … I decorated it with the Heart and Home Designer Series paper … to do this, I took apart one of the cups, and traced the outside onto designer paper and cut it out to make my wrap!! They were so cute!

The cover was created using Evening Evergreen cardstock, die cut with the Layering Circle Dies and embossed with the NEW 3-D Fern Embossing Folder. My “greeting” to my guests comes from the NEW Nature’s Prints Stamp set from our Sun Prints Suite … pg. 90 & 91. WOW!!

As my guests come into the dining room, over the fireplace …. they find what I call my Mantle Gifts! Each retreat I decorate the mantle with a hand crafted gift that they get to take home at the end of the retreat. These are actual “pocket cards” and a seed packet was tucked inside to they have a “living” remembrance of our retreat. Each seed packet is adorned with a flower … which is actual chocolate! We all know how good chocolate and stamping go together!

Here is a closer look ….

The card was created from one sheet of Very Vanilla … I created my own pattern for this. From the left over piece of vanilla, I stamped and punched (Label Me Lovely Punch) my greeting which come from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets: Peaceful Moments. The pretty die cut flowers come from the Hand-Penned Petals bundle.

The “sentiments” on my gifts are carefully picked to show my thoughts and gratitude to my guests for choosing to spend their time with me at my Annual Retreats … I want to create an atmosphere of fun, relaxation and camaraderie. (noun: camaraderie: mutual trust and friendship among people who spend a lot of time together.)

Road to my Spring Stampin’ Retreat …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m heading up to meet my Stampin’ Friends for our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat. I’ve got beautiful cards planned … which includes a “FUN FOLD” during each Stampin’ Session! I’m excited to meet our new stampers and can’t wait to welcome back some of the regulars.

Here is a look at our beautiful house and grounds ….

I’m hoping to share part of our retreat LIVE on my Facebook page … CLICK HERE to get to the page, and make sure you like and follow! We are in “another” new stamping room so I’ll try to share it with you.  

Our stamp session is full of fun, giggles, catching up, making new friends, snackin’ and of course some amazing stamping projects! 

Thank you for checking out my blog today … Have a great day!

Throwback Thursday: Daisy Garden in Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a card from the Daisy Garden stamp set, and it’s stunning in gold! I embossed the Daisy Garden in Gold on Very Vanilla cardstock. Let me just say, sometimes simplicity can be stunning …

I matted the embossed image with the Gold Foil paper (4″ x 5-1/5″) which really highlights the gold daisies. This front is attached to the Very Vanilla Base (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″). Heat embossing is the technique that attracted me into stamping!

The greeting comes from the upcoming “Celebrating You” stamp set … it will be available January 4th in the Mini Catalog, as will the beautiful Brushed Brass Butterflies! I die cut the greeting with the Tasteful Labels dies …

I added a strip of the beautiful Gold Shimmer Ribbon that can be found in the current Mini that expires on January 3rd. So today … you got to see something new, with something in our annual catalog. I like utilizing my stamps and accessories from both catalogs.

Thank you for joining me today. Enjoy your day ~

Here is the card we made with the He’s the Man Specialty Designer paper with Die Cuts ….

I have a STAMPIN’ TIP to share with you … The more I moved around the die cut sheets, some of the images began to come off, so I took the clear cellophane jacket that the dies are enclosed in and tucked all my die cuts and embellishments in there so I don’t loose any.

The card was just tooooo simple to create … I need to play with the stamp set and dies next. How about a class?? Would you be interested in that … I could do an in home for sure, and virtual for those interested.

I hope you enjoyed my SNEAK PEEK into the He’s the Man Suite … can’t wait to share even more with you!
