Aha! Found some samples to show you!

They are from my Sale-A-Bration workshops so, if you’re lucky enough to have attended one (!) you’ll have seen these in the flesh.  If you weren’t lucky enough to attend a workshop in January or February, ask yourself why, then maybe schedule your own for March! There's another great special offer heading your way!

This first sample I have to show you is a card I demonstrated at the workshops.

We all know that the three main things you need for cardmaking are: stamps, ink and paper. These are the “meat and two veg” of cardmaking. Everything else, such as the ribbons, brads and pretty things, are the cakes, sweets and chocolate. You really don’t need them, but they are nice to have!

This card is made from a selection of products which cover it all. You the cardstock - the Getting Started cardstock collection includes Whisper White as well as a range of useful colours. I used our notecards for the card base because they include gorgeous Whisper White envelopes and, what’s more, they saved me a LOT of cutting time.  In my kit you also get a SNAIL Adhesive®, a coloured ink pad (Old Olive of course!), a couple of markers and some fabulous embellishments.

And, because it’s Sale-A-Bration, the image stamps come free if you spend £45.

For this card I coloured the paper daisies with markers and then sprayed them with water from a misting bottle. This made the colours blend beautifully.  The rest is self-explanatory really. I tore a strip of Old Olive cardstock to represent the grass. You could punch this or snip it with scissors, but I was going for economy and speed.

And take a look at the shopping list below. You’ll notice that it all adds up to £46.55... which puts you in the realms of free stamps, so you can choose the Sweet Summer stamp set for free! This has proved a really popular set of products for both new and existing stampers
