Team Swaps - Seasonal Catalogue

Hi there

On Saturday our team had it's regular training session.  These are always so much fun - lots of catching up, laughing, eating and business help :)  Most sessions we do swaps and this time our swaps used products from the new Seasonal Catalogue.  Swaps are a great way of getting different ideas for using the new products.  There were 18 of us swapping so now I have 18 new ideas using products from the Seasonal Catalogue.  Here is the card I made.

This time I decided to go with a 3" x 3" card with a twist.  I had seen this style over on Mary Fish's blog and thought it would be cool to recreate using the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP.  It is kind of like a gate fold with the top piece fitting under the embellishment to keep shut.  Here is a photo of it opened which also shows off the cute whale paper.

The front picture is cut from another sheet of paper in the same pack using the 1 3/8" circle punch.  I did two colour combinations using Pacific Point ink with the whale holding either a yellow or green umbrella or Melon Mambo ink with the whale holding pink umbrellas.

Stamp - Ciao Baby
Card Stock - Whisper White
Ink - Pacific Point (or Melon Mambo)
DSP - Sunshine and Sprinkles
Other - 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Cloudy Day Embossing Folder, Dimesionals
