Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Hope you got a chance to check out my “sweet” Christmas card from the Cup of Christmas bundle that I shared yesterday. Today I have one of the cards that I created for our Saturday morning stamping session at our Annual Holiday Retreat.
The Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper I’ve been using so far is part of the Wrapped in Plaid Suite… remember seeing the gold boxes on the mantle? I’ll have more information about those in a couple of days …
The Wrapped in Plaid Suite Bundle gives you a coordinating selection of products with one simple purchase. It includes the stamp set and tool bundle at 10% off plus one each of the other items listed…
The Wrapped in Plaid Suite Bundle includes
* Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* Pine Tree Punch (10% off)
* Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper
* Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ (1 cm) Striped Ribbon
* Jingle Bells
* Gold Mini Pizza Boxes
Our group of stampers gathered in the morning to kick off our “Perfectly Plaid” session. The Perfectly Plaid Bundle includes the Perfectly Plaid Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Pine Tree Punch.
I started with a Cherry Cobbler base, one of the coordinating colors in the Wrapped in Plaid designer paper. I wanted this card to have a more rustic feel so I used a Crumb Cake front embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. I then layered a strip of the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer paper with a Whisper White mat.
The tree was punched out using the Pine Tree punch and was mounted onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock that was cut with the layering circles dies. I could not resist decorating my tree, so I punch out a Shaded Spruce “heart” from the Every Season Punch Pack and then tied a cute little bow out of the Whisper White Bakers Twine.
The greeting was added onto a white banner tying all the white together on my card … and to add the final touches, I added 3 Holiday Rhinestones in the Cherry Cobbler color.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another card showcasing the versitile Wrapped in Plaid Suite/Perfectly Plaid Bundle.
Thanks for spending part of your day with me ~
Wishing your day is a good one!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m sharing a bit of the Holiday Retreat and OnStage. As many of you know, I’ve headed out on my road trip to Orlando for the Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary OnStage event!! I’m so excited to get down there and meet up with my friends from all over, along with 1500 more stampin’ friends!!
The picture is from somewhere in Illinois … Today we got as far as Kentucky and should be at our Orlando hotel sometime tomorrow evening … the drive back will be a little slower paced! lol (My fault … I got a late start yesterday morning!) Hmmm … little tired from retreat, but again, my fault … I sat up till 3 am chatting and catching up with friends 🙂
I had a wonderful weekend with my guests! They were greeted with these cute name tags that hung on the door to their rooms. Their Saturday night Pillow Gift was a sweet memento for them to take home … a travel mug!! I want to thank them for joining us … and now we can always “travel” together!!
By now you might be seeing a theme running through the decorations and the door tags … I used the “Making Christmas Bright” Bundle from the Holiday Catalog!! Oh My Gosh … this was so much fun!! Even the little light sockets on the bulbs were quick -n- easy to assemble when I used the new “Pick Me Up” tool.
On our Friday Night stamp session we made 3 cards featuring the “Making Christmas Bright” Bundle, and here is our “Z” Fold card …
I hope you enjoyed hanging out on a part of my road trip today, and at our Holiday Stamping Retreat. I will be back to share more from both!!
Have yourself a most wonderful day ~
