Stampin’ Sisters Retreat: Bonanza Buddies Fun Fold Cards

The 8th and final project from our Stampin’ Sisters retreat was a set of 6 cards featuring the Bonanza Buddies Bundle.  Each card was created with a different Fun Fold.  The bright Cherry colors in this set won everyone over.

The Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon was used on some of the cards in this set and the rest of the roll was theirs to take home with them.

The first card, which is a vertical Z-fold card, looks like this when closed….

As I said previously, we had 92 guests in attendance at our 14th Annual Stampin’ Sisters Retreat.  It’s hard to get everyone in the annual photo, but we give it a try every year.

I’ve got just a couple more photos that I haven’t shared yet.  Here’s a little snack we had for everyone Saturday night…it’s a S’more on a Stick!  YUM!

Their Sunday Gift was this adorable Buffalo Check Container filled with popcorn that had red and black drizzle and crushed peppermint candies.  That’s a tasty snack.

Stampin’ Sisters Retreat: By the Dock Masculine Card set

Masculine cards are something we always get asked for, so project 7 at retreat was this set of masculine cards which feature the stamp set called By the Dock.  The coordinating Dockside Dies made it easy to cut the images out.

  Wink of Stella was used to add shimmer to the water on some of the cards.  Everyone got a Wink of Stella Pen to use and take home with them.

The color palate for these cards came from the Country Club Designer Series Paper which features plaids and argyle prints, which are great for masculine cards.

This card features a unique front flap on the card which was created used the Stitched nested Dies.

All of the sentiments used on these cards are also from the By the Dock stamp set.

Not only do the Dockside Dies cut out the large dock and the boat, but check out the little frog which was cut out with the dies.

Two of my favorite things on this card are the oars which are stamped and then cut out with the dies and the Grass with the Cat Tails which were also cut out with the dies.

Stampin’ Sisters Retreat: Nobel Peacock Box Trio

3-Dimensionals items are always a big hit at our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat and this trio of boxes featuring the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper and Nobel Peacock Foil Sheets won the hearts of many.

Stampin' Up! Nobel Peacock DSP, Stampin' Sisters Retreat, Stampin' Studio

The boxes ranged in size from 8″ x 8″, 6″ x 6″ and 4″ x 4″.  We stamped the tissue paper inside the boxes using the Beautiful Friendship stamp set with Blueberry Bushel, Pretty Peacock and Old Olive inks, which match the colors of the Designer Paper and Foil Sheets.  The tag that was die cut with the tag from the Bonanza Dies was stamped to match the tissue paper.

Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon

The take home gift for this project was the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock reversible Ribbon which was used to tie up and decorate the boxes.  We wrapped the ribbon around a wooden dowel and turned on the Heat tool , which warmed the ribbon up which set the curls into the ribbon.

We LOVE to surprise our guests throughout the event.  This “Tool Holder” was a gift they found at each of their seats on Saturday morning of Retreat.  It is tall enough to hold Stampin’ Blend Markers and has plenty of room to hold snail, glue, dimensionals and scissors as well as other items needed for paper crafting.  The cool thing about it is that it can snap right onto their Buffalo Checked Cooler Tote Bag we gave them!
