Spring Retreat Morning Session: Love You to Pieces Bundle

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you enjoyed a peek into my stamping retreats that I shared yesterday.  Today I’m going to share one of the cards that we made during our morning session but before we get into that, I want to share the view I was blessed with while I prepared the guests breakfast …

This is really a retreat!  So while the breakfast bakes are in the oven, and the fresh fruit is being sliced, the smell of the coffee brewing begins to fill the air.  Before you know it, the kitchen begins to fill with friendly faces and good mornings.

Once we are all gathered around the table and we finish our breakfast, we head over to our stamp room and begin our session with the fabulous “Love You to Pieces” bundle.

This was the second of the cards that we made in our morning session.  I teamed up the “Love You to Pieces” with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and the heart dies from the “Meant to Be” bundle. To soften the look I added the Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon.

We stamped our Petal Pink in Black StazOn and then cut the puzzle heart out with the die.  I shared a fun tip with my guests to put a little tape on the back of the heart before taking it out of the die … then there is no struggle trying to put it together on the card!

After the cards are done, our lunch is brought in and we all gather to eat. It was a beautiful day outside so once lunch was done, many guests went out for walks, drove around the grounds or went to the gift shoppe… more to come tomorrow.

Thanks you for joining me today, I’ll be sharing our afternoon session with you tomorrow.

Have a great day ~
