Welcome to the ESAD 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop!! I’m excited to be sharing my project with you tonight.
Firstly, what is ESAD?
You may have come from Denise’s gorgeous project or starting here with me.
There are so many lovely Christmas goodies in this catalogue!! I feel like I only just packed up my decorations from last year but I’m ready to start prepping for this year!! I love Christmas!!
I love the Cuckoo for You stamp set and matching Cuckoo Clock dies in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue and I was excited to see the Yummy Christmas stamp set in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.
I coloured it in using a variety of blends. See the listing below for all the colours I used. One of the most exciting products in the new catalogue is the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. You shake it up, then carefully squeeze the bottle and run it over the parts you need snow on. Keep the card flat so it doesn’t run, and then heat it using your heat gun and watch the magic happen!!
I used the Tin Tile 3d embossing folder on the background and used the Merry Christmas to All stamp set for the sentiment and the Merry Christmas thinlit for the sentiment. I forgot to mention that my favourite Christmas colour combo is Green and Red and I love the combo of Real Red and Call me Clover.
I showed this card to my craft ladies yesterday and I have orders already for 4 bottle of puff paint!! I think it’s going to be popular!!
Welcome to the ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue blog hop! You may have come from Shannon’s blog or be starting here with me.
Our challenge was to feature quick and easy projects using the gorgeous products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.
I was inspired to use the Santa’s Workshop Memories and More Cards and envelope pack. I was going to use the Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP but I got side tracked by the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. This is a great box and includes the Christmas Traditions stamp set, Christmas Traditions punch, a clear stamp block and the Call Me Clover and Real Red Classic Stampin’ Spots.
It was so quick to create a set of cards using the Punch Box. I cut a mat for the cards using the All is Bright DSP. I then stamped and punched one of each of the sentiments from the stamp set using the two ink spots.
I wanted to create a mat behind the sentiment so I cut out 2 of the shapes and then cut them in half and added them behind. Here’s some photos to show what I mean.
So without further ado, here are the six cards that I whipped up!
I recently discovered the gold cord in the Annual Catalogue. It also comes in black as well.
I hope you have enjoyed my set of cards and are inspired to give them a go.
Make sure you go to the bottom of my post to check out the products used to create these cards.
Welcome to my blog! You may have come from Sharni’s blog or be starting here with me. I’m excited to be a part of tonight’s ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue blog hop!
I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!! One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.
Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red. It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely. I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.
I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder. Don’t you just love this folder!
I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.
I just love Christmas!!! I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!
Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!
I’m excited to be a part of the ESAD Colour Your Season blog hop tonight. This bundle is just so lovely but it’s only available for the month of August.
You may have come from Fi Cobbin, or starting here with me.
I am starting to get in the Christmas spirit so I decided to highlight the lovely holly wreath and use my new Real Red Stampin’ Blends. (New colours are coming in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue!!)
I just love the Stitched Seasons framelits and the double stitching. I cut out a piece using the Under the Mistletoe DSP and then decide that I would make two cards and use the opposite pieces. I also used my favourite Subtles embossing folder!
I hope I have inspired you to purchase this gorgeous bundle!
It’s my lovely friend from Western Australia, Kelly Kent’s Birthday!! She is having a couple of blog hops to celebrate and I’m so excited to be a part of it!
I wanted to have a play with some new products, so here is part of the new Share What You Love Suite which is available to purchase right now! Yes that’s right, you don’t have to wait until 1 June to get your hands on new products. Just click on the image below to check it out on my online store.
I’ve also used one of the fabulous tutorials by Bronwyn Eastley, which you can purchase here. It’s the Tri-Fold Window Card which is such a wow card!
I used the Layered oval Framelits to cut out the centres of the card. And have you noticed the colour of the cardstock!! Yes, it’s Mint Macaron making a come back in the Colour Revamp!! I love this colour and am so glad to be able to play with it again. Now when I created my card, I didn’t have the mint macaron ink pad so I just used a versa mark ink pad to create a tone on tone look. Oh and check out the colour of my ink, it’s the new Grapefruit Grove!
And isn’t the Share What you Love Specialty DSP just beautiful! There are 4 sheets of each of pattern of the DSP and many of them have a pearly finish to them. So pretty!!
I also added half a pearlized doily and the new Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon. Love velvet ribbons!
Next up is my friend, Julia. I can’t wait to see what she has created!
Happy Birthday, dear Kelly. I hope that the next year is as amazing as the last.
Happy birthday and stamping!

There are lots of fabulous stamp sets and products in this catalogue!! I decided to create my first project using the Good Tidings stamp set.
I started off with using the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folder which I just received this week to add some texture to the background. I then stamped up a piece using the holly stamps from the set. I stamped off once using garden green for the solid image and then didn’t for the second image.
I then stamped the sentiment from the set in Cherry Cobbler and cut it out using the circle framelits. I also did a silver foil circle and a scalloped circle in Cherry Cobbler. And wait for it, I USED washi tape!! I used the new Year of Cheer Specialty washi tape (which is so lovely!!) and a piece from the Basics Pack 2 washi tape. I will get through my washi 2″ at a time!!
For my second card, I wanted to do something other than Christmas. The Painted Harvest stamp set is beautiful!! When I first saw it, I wasn’t convinced, but seeing many demonstrator samples over the past month has made me change my mind and fall in love with it.
I love that you can do so many different colour combinations for the flowers, however today, I’ve gone fairly traditional. I started with the centre of the flower using Early Espresso. I then used Daffodil Delight for the solid image and then used Pumpkin Pie for the next image and then did my favourite thing, fussy cutting. NOT!
I stamped the leaves on the cardstock in Old Olive and the sentiment in Early Espresso.
This is a quick and easy card to re-create.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards tonight. Next up is the amazing Mandy.
