Hold On To Hope Card Set – Project 5

We are to the half way point of our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat projects.  This is one of my favorite projects.  We used the Hold on to Hope stamp set and Cross of Hope Framelits and Wisteria Wonder with Elegant Eggplant and Champagne Foil accents.  The cards have a soft feel and would be perfect for Easter or Sympathy.

I saw lots of wonderful cards on Pinterest — thank you all for your inspiration.  I hope you like these cards as much as I do.  How would you like a card kit to make your own set of cards?  Place an order for the Hold on to Hope Bundle and Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon and I’ll mail you the kit of supplies along with step by step directions to make all four cards (envelopes included).  I will die cut all the circles and ovals for you, you will cut your own crosses, banners, butterflies and flowers.

How would you like a Sale-a-Bration item too — just add dimensionals, Multipurpose Glue (green glue), Elegant Eggplant stamp pad or any other item and you get to choose a Level 1 Sale-a-Bration item.

Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack Framed Art

Today I am sharing Project 4 from Stampin’ Sisters Retreat.  This was the favorite project of the weekend.  We used the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack from the Occasions Catalog.  The original use for these cards was for quick & easy scrapbooking but there is so much more you can do with them.  You are make lots and lots of gorgeous cards and you can make your very own framed art piece like this.

This framed art piece is absolutely gorgeous in black and white as shown and will fit in every decor style and color.  But if you want to make it even more spectacular, get out your Stampin’ Blends and color away.  You can make it fit any color scheme you want.

Best part yet — when you purchase the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack, you get two of each card so you can make another identical frame and many, many more with all the other cards that are left over.  I think you could have next year’s Christmas gifts done in no time at all.  Just pick up an 8″ x 8″ frame at your local craft store and you are ready to do.


Medallion Mix Card Kit = Stampin’ Sisters Retreat Project 3

We are on to Stampin’ Sisters Retreat Project 3.  We used the Medallion Mix Card Kit — it’s a Sale-a-Bration item.  Instead of cards, Tina designed these adorable gift boxes — they are great for a special some one.  Each Medallion Mix Card Kit come with four of each color card — Berry Burst and Crumb Cake.  We used the two of the Berry Burst cards for the feminine box and two Crumb Cake  for the masculine box.  There are plenty of leftovers to create many more projects.
