Today is the launch of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue and what better way to showcase the fantastic new products now available is going on a Blog Hop. Come and join me in a little cyber hopping to some see some wonderful creations from my ESAD friends. Firstly,
What is ESAD?
ESAD – stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.
We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful 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 and I’ll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group.
So, let’s begin!
You may have just come from Angie’s blog or you might be starting here. Either way, enjoy your travels – and I hope you are inspired. Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end to say you have visited.
Today I want to show you one of the new stamp sets ‘Wishing You’. This is on Page 23 of the Holiday Catalogue.
When you are looking for inspiration to create your projects you can spend hours trawling the internet (pinterest perhaps???!!!!!!). Don’t forget the Catalogues for ideas. They have some fantastic simple projects for you to Copy. For this one I have CASED from page 9 of the Holiday Catalogue. I have used the ‘Season of Style’ Designer Series Paper (page 23) and the lovely Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edged Grosgrain Ribbon (page 22). The little parcels I coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers. Being a clear- mount set I could easily see where to place them. Maybe I should have got the Stamp-A-ma-jig out BUT I was lazy!!
This next card was inspired by a card on Splitcoaststampers. (Another great source of inspiraton!).
For this one I have used the ‘Season of Style’ Designer Series Paper again. I have stamped the gifts and the greeting on Whisper White card and layered this on Silver Glimmer Paper for some sparkle. You have to have that, don’t you! I added a bow again using the Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain ribbon. This one is very quick to make. As long as it doesn’t take several attempts at making a half-decent bow. How do I know that? I think it took me as long to make the bow as it did to make the card.
Now the great thing with this set is it is very versatile. I like to show how you can use your Christmas sets for other occasions. You can pull this set out for Birthdays throughout the year.
This card was inspired by a card on Page 3 of the Annual Catalogue. For this I have used the ‘I Am Me’ Designer Series Paper. The gifts were coloured with Pear Pizzazz and Tangerine Tango Markers. The piece was layered under a Tangerine Tango frame cut with the Squares Collection Framelits. The greeting is from ‘Remembering your Birthday’. The card was finished off with a clip from the Essentials Hardware (page 170).
Now you can head off to the next blog on your journey. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will visit me again soon. Now you can see what fabulous creations Jenny Humphreys has made for you.
See you next time,
