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!
