ESAD – See Ya Later

I’m excited to be a part of the ESAD See Ya Later Favourites Blog Hop tonight!

We are sharing our favourite retiring products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue and the January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue. You can see what is retiring, here.

I decided to use the Royal Peacock Bundle which includes the Royal Peacock stamp set and Detailed Peacock dies. Now I’ve had this set for a while and in fact, I discovered that I haven’t even inked up the stamp set!! Oopsie!!

I really love the Detailed Peacock dies. There is one die which cuts out the stamped peacock and one that does a fancy peacock. I cut out a fancy peacock using the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP. It’s so pretty!! I then mounted it onto a Stitched Rectangle (woohoo not retiring!!) and layered up with a couple of different pieces of the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP.

The sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out using the Stitched Nested labels dies (also not retiring!!). I think I’m going to send this card to my niece as she is in Grade 12 this year and is doing a great job with doing school from home.

Next up is the fabulous Libby.

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous projects being shared!!

Here’s a list of everyone in the hop.

ESAD Holiday Catalogue sneak peak

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!!

Next up is my lovely friend, Kelly Kent.

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’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.

bec-cross-stitch

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!

esad-holiday-bec

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!

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 love all the pretty paper

esad dsp headerI’m excited to be a part of the ESAD blog hop to showcase the amazing designer series papers of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

esad dsp about

So there are 10 amazing designer series papers on sale this month.  When you buy 3 packs, you’ll get one for free!!  Check them out here.

To help you decide which papers you NEED, I’ve got a few cards to help you make up your mind.  I just received the Darling Label Punch Box which is stunning!  I love the tin in comes in.

My first card uses the Garden Impressions dsp.  I love how bright and cheerful the paper is.  I also used my new favourite embossing folder, Subtle.  You’ll be seeing it often!

esad-dsp-bec-1The Under the Mistletoe DSP is in my favourite Christmas colours of Real Red and Old Olive.  And again, there’s my favourite embossing folder!

esad-dsp-bec-3

The Petal Promenade DSP is absolutely gorgeous!!  I have to admit that this was a hard paper to cut.

esad-dsp-bec-5

Then I got a bit excited and forgot that the sale doesn’t include the specialty papers.  So here are a couple of extra cards using the Share What You Love Specialty DSP and Tea Room Specialty DSP.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Narelle, I can’t wait to see what she has made.

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.

kelly share

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!
