Card from Training

OK, so today's post is a bit of a cheat as it's a card that I did not design but one that I should have made at training last weekend. I would have posted it this week anyway so I guess no harm done.

Natalie O'Shea designed 20 cards for us to make at team training and those of us who can't make this coming weekend's rescheduled day have had a kit sent to them.  I'm not going as I have a really early morning start - I have to take my daughter to her SAT test for US University entrance. Then it's a mad dash home as I have a class of 10 lovely ladies coming to make some projects.

Anyway, I digress. Natalie, bless her, had pre-cut all the card stock in the kit so all I've had to do is stamp images, punch and pierce shapes and then put the card fronts together! I have so far completed 12 out of the 20 (not bad going in two days) but we were meant to complete all 20 in the one day. The aim is to put all the cards together in what we call baggie books.  I made something similar last year and they are a great idea to show off how versatile the Sale-A-Bration products are.

My favourite card so far has to be the following


The card features both the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and the Madison Avenue stamp set.  There is a third and fourth Sale-A-Bration item - the Island Indigo ribbon is part of the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack and the greeting comes from the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set.

The Stampin' Up! products used are

Stamp sets : Madison Avenue* and Bloomin' Marvelous*
Card stock/Designer Series Paper : Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. Sycamore Street DSP*
Ink : Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple
Accessories : Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack*, Subtles Brads, Subtles Glimmer Brads and Mini Brads

* Sale-A-Bration

I am hoping to get a few more of the cards finished today so those of you coming to class tonight and tomorrow will be able to see all the finished samples - but not necessarily all 20. I will do my best...

If anyone fancies getting their hands on any of the Sale-A-Bration products drop me a line. Each £45 purchase entitles you to one FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and there is so much to choose from.
