Bingo, Olivia's Spring Stampin Retreat

Bingo Stampin' Style was a great hit!!   A fun exciting time with anticipation of winning the great Stampin' prizes.  After three games we took a break to make some cards.  After eating doughnuts, we play three more games of bingo.  At the end of the day everyone was a winner, because I had a small gift for everyone to take home along with their cards.  They were extra happy.

 These three cards were made by the bingo players.  Each card had one of the large flowers from the stamp set:  Blooms & Wishes.

Last Friday morning I had my Team Meeting.  It was good and the gals went home with new information, questions answered and make-n-takes.  Below is a picture of one gift I made for my team members.  I forgot to take pictures of the other items. I used the Basket Bunch Bundle for the center decoration.

This is a medium size bag.

Using Designer Series Paper to make the bag makes it is easy to decorate since the paper already has a print.  The die cut circle with the Easter basket, from the Basket Bunch Bundle, gives a focal point.
I love this bundle.  There is a die cut for every stamp in the set making it easy to use.

The bag is 6" x 12",
Score:  The long side 5 1/4", and 6 3/4".
            The short side 1 1/2" and 5"
            Cut on the two middle score lines (on the short side) up to the score line                                                     (meeting the long score line).
            Fold on the score lines, glue the center small  squares to one side.
            Fold up one side and glue

Stampin' Up So Very Much Stamp Set


It is a cool but sunny day here in Auburn.  I am enjoying it, especially since I have been sick and finally this afternoon, started feeling better,  I hope I can get back in gear.tomorrow.
Monday I posted a card from the stamp set "SoVery Much" and today I have another card featuring the same set.

I enjoyed making this card.  Using a stamp from the Work of Art stamp set gave the watercolor wash effect.  Stamping with different colors gives a rainbow look.  This is a super card to make in 10 -15 minutes.   All I had to do was cut the base, the black mat and whisper white card stock to stamp the two images and add washi tape on the side.  I sometimes need to have a card like this for my customers to make during a class meeting after we make a difficult technique or fold card.

To make this card, you will need:
1),   Stamp sets:  So Very Much #143340  and  Work of Art #134111 (wood)  #134114 (clear)
2).  Card Stocks:
                     Watercolor Wonder # 138334
                     Basic Black # 121045
                     Whisper White # 100730
3).  Inks:
           Pool Party # 126982
          Watercolor Wonder # 138323
          Crushed Curry # 131173
          Memento Tuxedo Black # 132708

4).  Washi Tape:  Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape #141635

So Very Much

Good Afternoon!
I had a great weekend but ended up with a cold!  Not fun!!  Hope you are doing well.  One month from today is Spring!! Wow, hang in there.
Today I want to share a stamp set from Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration mini catalog, So Very Much.  I love the font.  The size is large so it is definitely the main focus of the card.


Supplies to make the above card are listed below:
1).Island Indigo # 122923 is the color card stock for the base of the card. 
2).Whisper White #100730 is used for the top mat.  
3).The narrow strip of DSP from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper # 141654, is at the bottom of the card.  
4).The silver 3/8" Metallic Ribbon under the flower divides the Whisper White from the DSP.   This ribbon is from the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack in the SAB catalog.  It is a Free item after you place an order of $50.  
5).The flower image under the Thank You is from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set  #141784.  
6).Island Indigo Classic Stampin' Pad and Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad are the two inks used for the words and flower.
7).A Stamping Sponge #141337 is used on the Whisper White to add a background color.  

Sending Thank You cards is so important to let people know you really do appreciate their actions, thoughts and caring.  What better way to let them know you care by taking the time to make a card yourself rather than buying one at the store.

Hope you have a great week.

Stamp Camp and Hey Chick Stamp Set

Happy Friday!

I have had a fun day getting ready for my Stamp Camp tomorrow.  Below is a picture of  4 of the 8 projects, we will be making.

I had to laugh yesterday when I went shopping for Easter candy.  Stores are just putting the candy on the shelves, so I couldn't find what I was looking for.  Usually I buy the candy when it has been out a few weeks.   Notice in the picture the candy treat with the rabbit on the front, the candy egg inside is small.  Robin Eggs was all I cold find.  I guess I will count my blessings for those.

I will post more information on these projects next week along with the other four projects I have made for the camp.

The picture above is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  You will find it on page 16.  The supplies for the card on the left, are given on the right side.

Have a great week-end.
