ESAD 2016 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the ESAD 2016-17 Annual catalogue blog hop.
You may have hopped here from  Lou's blog or if you are just starting then I hope you enjoy our hop we have for you today.

 It has been so exciting playing with new product from the new catalogue. I was lucky enough to stamp off a few images from the hostess set Love You Lots from a friend and then made these cards using the new nesting square framelits as well. Aren't they so cute. Of course the set is now on my wish list.



The hostess set Gift of Love is another set I really like as even though its a 3 step stamp I added some shading to give the flowers more depth. I have used paper from the Playful Pallet DSP stack.

 


I saw this little owl made using stamps from Swirly Bird and thought I would give him a go. Its quite amazing how many ideas I have seen using this set.



This card I made as a Tri fold card and as I had coloured and cut lots of flowers from the set Love and Affection, I decided to just glue them on the front and then cut around the edge and add some more flowers on the right flap inside. I wasn't going to buy this set but now am glad I did as I have enjoyed making cards with this.


That's all for today from me but if you hop on over to Richelle's Blog there will be more lovely projects for you to see. Have fun!

Occasions and Sale-a-Bration 2016 ESAD Blog Hop



Hi there,
I was told the other day that it had been so long since I updated my blog and yes I am guilty of that. Actually it was the last blog hop that I participated in. Maybe I need to do lots more blog hops. Well here we are at another one, The Occasions & Sale-a-bration ESAD Blog Hop.



You may have hopped here from Barbara's blog after enjoying her lovely projects or if you have started here then keep hopping on around and enjoy what each one has to show you today.
I usually use quite a few different stamp sets but today I have chosen the Rose Wonder stamp set with coordinating Rose Garden thinlet dies found on page 18 of the Occasions catalogue. Who would have guessed?? 

I have used a few different techniques for my cards. 


 This one is stamped and coloured using black for the outline and Rose Red, Marina Mist and Old Olive. I like to cut the leaves off and add them where I like.


 I used my markers to ink the stamp with Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz and then coloured them using a paintbrush. 

 I used the die cut and sponged over the white with Rose Red and Pear Pizzazz. I couldn't find my fine tip glue pen and so the glue is a little messy on this one. You sure do need a fine tip glue to do this one. 

 Another stamp and colour rose this time straight onto the card front. 


 Using the Negative of the die cut but using the outline part for placement. 
 I have used a white die cut and black background and then 2 colours for the rose and also leaves and put them all together in the inlaid method and then I embossed it for extra hold. 
 
I found these few flowers left overs from all my colouring and cutting and decided to put together another card.

Well thats all from me today but now you can hop on over to Narelle's Blog
to see what wonderful things she has to show you.

ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop




hello again, 
Its time for another blog hop brought to you by the demonstrators from ESAD. You may have just hopped from the talented Rebecca Scurr's blog or if you have started here then hop on round to see all the wonderful designs.

 “What is ESAD?
 ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
 We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas& friendship and we're always there to help and support each other.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I'll contact you with information on how to join our group.”


 Today we are showcasing the new products in the Holiday Catalogue that started on September 1st and is available until January 4th.

 I never stick to just one stamp set so I will continue in that way and show a few of my favourites. 
These first 2 are using the set All Ye Faithful. I enjoyed colouring these and made the stable using the Hardwood background stamp. The trees in the background are from Wonderland.



 I have been lucky enough to make some samples using my friends order so have had access to so much more that I would have. The trouble is once you have had a play with the stamp set you then feel that you need to have it too.
This one is Your Presents and it can be used for both birthdays and Christmas. It is a set that is made especially for the technique "Kissing" I have cut out the presents and stacked them for a birthday card.


 With this card I have used the holly from Embellished Ornaments and the greeting. The Background is sponged using one of the stencils.



 Another set that I didnt think I needed is Reason for the Season with the coordinating punch but am now thinking that I would like it. This first card is cased from the catalogue and coloured in Real Red.



I used the Softly Falling embossing Folder on this next card and also the Christmas Greeting Thinlets and Holly Jolly Greetings set. 




That will do for today as you have plenty more wonderful projects to hop around and see. Thank you for stopping by. Next on the hop is Rochelle Blok

ESAD New Catalogue Blog Hop





hi there, 
here we are again having an ESAD blog hop. It is so much fun joining in with fellow demonstrators to show you some cards you can create with all the lovely new sets.
If you have been following the blog hop you would have come from Kelly's Blog.
If you have started here then just follow on through each blog until you get back here.


“What is ESAD?
 ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

 I couldn't make up my mind which stamp set to focus on so decided to use 3 different ones today. I am loving Awesomely Artistic and have used a layout I found on Pinterest and changed the DSP and colour. I love the new text DSP this year. 


 Of course I have been colouring the flower from You've Got This and cutting it out ready to use on cards. The following 2 cards I have used this flower. The 1st one is a CASE once again changing colours. I have used the new Watermelon Wonder to colour both flowers. 


 Build a Birthday is a great set to create all kinds of cards with. I have chosen to use the strips as candles for this card but there are so many ideas out there on the web for you to get inspiration from. the DSP is from Cherry on Top DSP stack.

The inside of the card. I punched a circle out from the fron piece of DSP and used it in the inside. 




 now its time to go to see what Narelle has to show you today

ESAD Sneak Peek Blog Hop



hi there, 
Its that time again.... a blog hop for ESAD.
you may have come here from Rachael's blog  or are just starting. 
I hope you enjoy what we have prepared for you today.




 I have used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the coordinating Tree builder punch from the sneak peek pre-order to show you. There are so many things you can do with this set. I have 4 to show you but there are so many other ideas. This set is this years Ronald McDonald House Charities set. Stampin' Up! donate $3 from every set sold to this charity.

The colours used are new "In Colours" Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.





 This card I have used Old Olive and Early Espresso for a change.



You will see so many more ideas for this set that it will be worth getting and showing support for Ronald McDonald House. 

Now its time to hop along to Kelly's Blog
