Stampin’ Sisters Retreat – Amazing Life Card Set

We finished Saturday’s project with the Amazing Life Card Set.  What a fun project this was — all five cards had the same layout featuring the Gingham Gala Designer Paper and the Amazing Life Stamp Set.

The flower was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White, colored with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut with Paper Snips.  We added Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins in the lower right corner of each card.

Stampin’ Sisters Retreat – Precious Parcel Desk Set

The Precious Parcel Desk Set was the sixth project at our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat.  When the Sale-a-Bration Catalog came out and I saw the Precious Parcel Card Kit I knew I wanted to try something other than cards.  I saw a pencil box someone had made so I started with that first.  Once that was done I thought why not make a whole desk set.  Here’s what I came up with:

Isn’t this adorable!!!  I am really happy with how it turned out.

The boxes put our stampers over the top just a bit but they were very pleased with the end result.

First is the Pencil Box — we folded up the Precious Parcel card and sealed it shut, trim around the post card and tucked both pieces inside the mail slot.  The “stamps” were added with Dimensionals and finally a Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon bow was added with a Glue Dot.

Next we made a drawer box for paper clips or any other desk accessories.
We added a Metallic Brad for the drawer pull.

Don’t you love the Post It Note Holder — so cute.  This one was a bit tricky, I had to re-cut and score the card but I love how it turned out.

We ended with a tissue box cover that matches all the other pieces.
The Precious Parcel card is the front of the cover.  For the sides, we ran Pear Pizzazz card stock through the
Lace Embossing Folder and then sponged over it with Mossy Meadow ink.

Lastly we added Pearls to the center of each flower.

There was no stamping on this project, just lots of assembling but it was definitely worth the time.

I only have two projects left to share with you and some other goodies too.

Stampin’ Sisters Retreat – Butterfly Gala Card Set

The theme for our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat this year was butterflies and flowers as you saw from our table centerpieces and goodie bags.  Our Butterfly Gala Card Set was the next project after lunch and it definitely fit the theme.  This project used the Butterfly Gala stamp set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch along with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Paper from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.

I love the black and white color combination.  This project had 6 cards covering all occasions and envelopes that we embossed the flaps with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folders.

A quick little note card featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer paper.  We cut the label using the Rose Trellis Thinlits and the butterfly was punched out of the designer paper.  So simple but elegant.

These little butterflies are also punched from the designer paper — aren’t they adorable!!!

I love the black gingham background — the butterflies are again from the designer paper.  The larger one is cut out with Paper Snips – sorry, no punch for this one.

Aren’t the butterflies in the paper beautiful — the paper is colored and ready for your card front.
We stamped the butterflies, colored them with Light Calypso Coral and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends
and punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch.

This designer paper looks like a coloring book — we kept it black and white.
The stamped butterflies are colored with Highland Heather Combo Stampin’ Blends.

he final card is very colorful.  The designer paper is black and white, we used Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to color the Black gingham strip and color all of the butterflies.

I can’t decide which card is my favorite — how about you — which card do you like best?
