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.)

Christmas Wrapped in Love & Joy Card …

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!

Holiday Stamping Retreat / Cup of Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to invite you into our Friday Night stamping session at our Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat. I host two retreats each year … a spring (All Occasions) and a fall (Holiday) where I invite all my active customers to join me and their fellow stampers for a weekend getaway. Everything is prepared for you so you do not have to drag your entire craft room with you!

As our guests arrive in the stamping room, it is filled with Holiday cheer, Christmas music and a snack table (of course) ….

Each attendee stamping spot includes a bag filled with all their projects, packed up by stamp session so they can find their projects easily and no little pieces are lost.  This year they each received one of the new Stampin’ Up! boxes filled with stampin’ dimensionals and the embellishments they need for their cards /projects.  The boxes are different at each retreat so they never go home with the same hand-crafted item…

Our Friday Night Stamp Session highlighted the Cup Of Christmas Bundle and the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series paper pack.  It’s easy to spread tidings of comfort and joy and a cup of cheer to all your friends and family this season when using this bundle. The Cup of Christmas Stamp Set is excellent for cards and tags.

The Cup of Christmas Bundle includes the Cup of Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Cup of Cheer Dies. This is a Reversibles* stamp set; it includes specialized photopolymer stamps that allow you to stamp with both sides of the stamp for greater versatility. *Patent pending.

Our guests got to see how this amazing stamp set performs … knowing you can now stamp a cup for your “left-handed” friends! So the card on the right was designed to show you “how” you can reverse your stamp and have the handle on the right or left side of your cup. Brilliant!

I always design a special card or two for my stamping sessions and for our Cup of Cheer bundle, I highlighted the candy cane dies and teamed it up with the stunning Wrapped in Plaid designer paper … they also used the “Step Card Fold” for this card …

I thought this pattern from the Wrapped in Plaid designer paper went perfectly with my candy canes and the gold foil behind them really shows them off!  Really does make for a “Sweet Christmas” … doesn’t it.

The group loved the cards, and it’s having such an amazing group to stamp with that makes our stamping sessions so much fun at our retreats. We all learn so much from one another as they share their stamping tips throughout the sessions too.

Thanks for joining me today …

I will be back tomorrow with some more samples from our Holiday retreat!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

I’m Back with our Holiday Stamping Retreat!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s been a week since I last posted … so sorry for that! I was preparing for my Holiday Stamping Retreat that I hosted this past weekend, so today I’d like to show you what I’ve been doing and a look inside my retreats.

I will start with Friday and our guests arriving.  It may have been snowy outside but it was warm and welcoming inside with the smell of soups on the stove and some cute little packages adorning the dining room fireplace …

As our guests arrived, they were guided to their rooms …

Not hard to find when you have these cute little name tags to guide you in.  I used the Cup of Cheer suite … I can’t believe all the compliments on the Wrapped in Plaid designer paper! It is so festive with the gold running through the plaid, and the colors are so rich and beautiful.

To formally welcome our guests, they are gifted some delicious chocolate stars from Madeline Chocolates … YUM!! Oh yes, and a little welcome note to let them know how appreciated I am that they joined us for this special festive stamping event.

After dinner we all gathered in the stamping room to make our first set of cards for the weekend …

I will share our projects with you tomorrow, because tonight I’d like to share a little more of the fun we had on Friday!  After stamping, I asked my guests to go back to thier rooms and open thier Pillow Gifts and then join me in the living room by the fireplace for some treats and hot chocolate …

The tag was created with items from the Perfectly Plaid Suite; the  Tree Punch, Stamp Set & was highlighted with a Shimmery White Doily.

Inside our pretty little gift package you will find …

A pair of holiday socks that they were instructed to put on before the joined us for hot chocolate, a spoon filled with chocolate and marshmallows and some lip gloss just for the fun of it!

We met in front of the fireplace (sorry … I missed a picture of our Hot Chocolate table this time) and enjoyed some hot chocolate, Christmas Cookies, Peanut Brittle and good conversation.  

Before everyone headed off to their rooms for the night … We couldn’t miss sharing a picture of all our new Christmas stockings!  Just taking the  picture was a blast! lol  Flashes coming from the entire circle! Oh what fun we had …

and our friend Cindy … She thought we should all go on the stairs! That would have been an amazing picture as well.

We had a fun evening, and as promised, I will share the stamping with you tomorrow.  I continued the “Cup of Christmas” bundle and Wrapped in Plaid” Designer Paper through to our stamping projects on Friday Night.

Till then, have a good day, and thank you so much for joining me again after my week long absence, but now you know that I was in my stamp room creating a fun weekend for my retreat attendees.

See you tomorrow,

Saturday Showcase: Three Guest Stampers

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Wooo Hooo … it’s Saturday! Time to relax and have some fun.  I hope that you have enjoyed seeing part of what we do at our Annual Stamping Retreats. Today I would like to share with you, three cards done by our Retreat Attendee’s for the Swap Contest.  I choose these three first because they all use the products that I have been highlighting all week.

Let’s begin with Karie …

Karie used the amazing Beauty Abounds stamp set which we used several times during our retreat and it also embellished their Door Tags and Mantle Gifts.  Karie’s card utilized both the full dies that come in the bundle.  Karie used Gorgeous Grape with the base die and Highland Heather with the “delicate” die cut that goes on top of the Grape.

Love the little “bubble” stamp that she used to create her background … and each butterfly is embellished with the Enamel Glitter Dots.  Karie’s card finished in the top 3!!

Our next card is from Jane …

Jane’s card is stunning and used the Wonderful Romance Bundle teamed with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies, and the Floral Romance Specialty Designer paper (sold out) that I used on yesterday’s card.

The layers and intricate work done on this card is amazing … one of my favorite swap cards.  The hearts are cut out and the heart frame is laid into the front, while the designer paper was tucked behind it all to create a beautifully delicate look. The layering of the die cut leaves draws your eye to the greeting creating a perfect focal point to your card.  You’ll also notice the sweet little butterflies that also come from the Beauty Abounds bundle.

The last of today’s card comes from Sarah W.

Sarah chose to use the Beautiful Promenade Bundle and the Pretty Promenade Designer Series paper from the Annual Catalog.  Sarah highlighted her designer paper by layering it onto Mossy Meadow cardstock. I love that she used the pretty lattice background which comes from the Rose Trellis Thinlits dies (no longer available) … it really draws the eye to the flower!

The cute little butterflies come from the Butterfly Gala bundle which included the stamp set and coordinating punch and can be found in the Occasions catalog.

These three ladies … Karie, Jane and Sarah W. clearly took our Spring Stamping Retreat theme “Butterflies & Blooms” to heart.  Each card encompassed the theme and was created with heart. I will be sharing more of the Retreats Swap cards but I also want to share more of the “RETIRING” stamp set. I have to play with them one more time before they go!!

Tomorrow I’ll be back with a special little card that clubs did this month, and that I dedicate to my Mom for Mother’s Day.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today … enjoy your Saturday!

Our Friendship – Z Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As we come to an end of the week, we also are coming to the end of our Stamping Retreat so I’m sharing one more of our cards. We used the Beauty Abounds bundle for our last stamping session.  All of the cards were beautiful but because part of their pillow gift for that night was the Glimmer Paper … I had to show them a beautiful card using it.

We have so much fun at our retreats, it never fails to amaze me how a group of ladies who do not know each other when they arrive are swapping phone numbers before they leave!  So I’ll be sharing some of the pictures I caught while we stamped …

As we gathered for our last stamp session for the evening, everyone came back full of smiles and ready to stamp! We are using the Beauty Abounds bundle on another “Z Fold Card”.  The Floral Romance Designer paper used on this card is no longer available, but many of the other items I shared with you all week are available (even most on the retiring list). This is the last card of the evening …

There is that glimmer paper, in the form of a beautiful butterfly! While preparing for the retreat, I precut out all the butterflies from the large butterfly die. Simply cut a piece of glimmer paper the size of the butterfly you want to cut out and rolll it through the BigShot.

The greetings used on the card all come from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies in the Beauty Abounds bundle…

The Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems embellish the butterfly to create the body and draw your eye right to the card, now there is a focal point … so pretty.

The ladies are enjoying the stamp session while working on the last of the cards …

but this group … well, they were a little punchy and were playin’ with me while I was taking the pictures! Gotta love it!

It was a great day of stamping, and we finished off with another beautiful card.  Our next stop was back to the house for dessert and to find out who won the Card Contest.

I hope you enjoyed todays card and all of the cards that I shared from our annual spring retreat.  There were plenty more projects that they made but some things that happen at reatreat … stays at retreat! lol

I will be back tomorrow to begin sharing some of the swap cards, until then I hope you consider joining us at our next retreat, our annual Fall Holiday Stamping Retreat which will be held the first weekend of November … just be sure to get on my mailing list.

Have a beautiful day !
