Crafty Weekend

I was lucky enough to go to my upline Kay's retreat this past weekend.  This was the first time I've been able to go.  It was so much fun!  She spoiled us with lots of treats.  We had make and takes, lots of food and a Christmas pajama party Saturday night.

My goal was to get swaps done for On Stage in November.  I didn't get all of them done but I did get some completed. Here are some of the cards I made:
This stamp is from the Every Good Wish set. I love the 
watercolor look. I got 25 made for swaps!

I don't have this bundle yet but got to use Kay's. It's
a beautiful set - I've ordered it now! I only had enough paper
 to make about 12 of these for swaps. 

This card was made with the Snowflake Sentiments
bundle.  Another beautiful set!  I've seen so many
gorgeous examples on Pinterest with it.

I used several different sets on this card.
The sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments set,
the mittens are from the Smitten Mittens set and I used
the Winter Wonder embossing folder for the background.
I'm sure you can't see it in the photo, but I added Wink of
Stella to the embossed snowflake.

This is the Hearts Come Home bundle. More
Wink of Stella on the snowdrifts. I added
silver foil paper behind the windows.
I decided this was a little to time
intensive for swaps.

This is using a special stamp set - Merry Patterns.
You can get this stamp set free with a $300 party
or order.  Stay tuned for more info on another
way you can get one.

I wanted to make some swaps for On Stage
that weren't Christmas. This is using the
Oh So Eclectic bundle. I'm not sure this
is my final version. I'd like to try one using
embossing paste in the background instead of the
die cut out.

So that's most of what I made at the retreat.  Next time I'll have my cards planned out better so I can make sure I have everything I need.  But it was a lot of fun to play with stamps and dies that I didn't own!
