You Brighten My Day


Are you ready to see the projects we did at retreat?  Friday night we started with a stamp set that everyone received — You Brighten My Day.  We made a set of 6 cards and most of the cards also featured the Irresistibly Yours DSP from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.
Way to GoThe first card uses the Star Irresistibly Yours DSP which we sponged with Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight ink.  We cut the stamp that was three stars apart so we could stamp them just a little further apart.  After we stamped the three stars we added Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers over the stars — so cute.  Everyone received a package of the Epoxy Stickers that they used on other cards too.

Cantaloupe ThankfulThis card is so soft and sweet.  This time the DSP has the Fancy Fan print on it that we sponged with Calypso Coral ink that is darker at the top and gradually gets lighter at the bottom.  Don't you love when there is a punch to coordinate with the stamp — the Note Tag Punch worked great for this card.
Purple HouseDid someone you know recently move away — this card would be perfect.  The flowers are the Irresistibly Yours DSP this time.  We sponged Rich Razzleberry ink on this piece.  We cut the heart stamp apart, just like the stars, and added some more Epoxy Stickers.  The house was punched out using the What's Up? Punch.

Come back tomorrow to see that last three cards from this set.

Easter is getting closer

Stampin' Sisters Retreat is over….it's time to move on to Easter.  Can you believe that Easter is less than a month away.  Spring is starting — I won't say it's here yet because we all know we can be fooled very quickly.  The temps are starting to climb a bit during the day — almost 50 yesterday and today. 

Here's a fun Easter card we made at Stamp & Go Club last week.
Happy Easter BunnyI just love this fun Happy Easter Bunny stamp.  It definitely looks like spring to me.  He is dancing and jumping around.  I stamped him in Memento ink and colored in with markers.  Did you see his puffy tail — I cut a pompon off the trim and added with glue dots for his tail.  The designer paper is the fabulous Best Year Ever DSP from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog — FREE with a $50 order (but only through the end of March).  Did you get yours yet?

Retreat is Over

My sister, Tina Rappe, has been mentioned many times here on my blog.  She posted on her blog yesterday "I refer to my sister Peggy Murwin quite often on this blog.  She's my big sister, my best friend, and my very firsts recruit nearly 11 years ago."  I couldn't agree with Tina more — she is definitely my BEST friend, she is my only sister and I wouldn't be where am I without her help and encouragement every day.  She and I put on the "Stampin' Sisters Retreat" every year.  It is SO MUCH FUN!!!

This year my daughter, Katie Campbell, got to attend Stampin' Sisters Retreat for the first time.  She seemed to love every minute of it — checking out the fun she had when her color won a turn at Plinko to win a prize.

Yesterday was the final day of retreat — so sad.  Everyone has such a good time together.  I love to watch new people bonding, stampers are like no others and we have all made life long friends at this event.

Here is this year's group photo — they do look like they are having fun.
