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!
