Firstly though, What is ESAD?


stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and it 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 then I’ll contact you with information on how to join our group.

Now onto the Blog Hop.  You may have come from Angela’s blog or starting here.  Either way, Grab your coffee and settle in for the ride.

Today I have chosen to use the ‘Petite Petals’ Bundle.  This is a cute little stamp set AND matching punch. You can see these on page 33 of the Occasions Catalogue. Not only is it a cute set but it co-ordinates so well with many other stamps and accessories you probably have already. I have shown you some projects here and here already with this set but I have created some other projects just for you today.

Firstly – a card.


I have layered some of the gorgeous Watercolor Wonder DSP behind the lattice Diecut. One of the flowers from Petite Petals were stamped 5 times in Tangerine Tango and punched out with the matching petal punch. No cutting out these little flowers!! I added some Gumball Green leaves punched with the 2 way Bird punch and a little Dazzling Diamonds to the centre of the flowers for some dazzle.  The greeting is from Label Love and punched with the Label Punch.  A second label was punched in Island Indigo and cut and layered behind the label.  I tied some Linen Thread around the card too. Now this card turned out differently to what I had planned. I think it is kind of tropical though, don’t you???

I have another project for you too.  This is a cute little gift box and matching card.


For these projects I have used the paper from the free Sale-A-Bration ‘Sweet Sorbet’ DSP.  The instructions for this cute little box can be found on Sam’s blog here.  Now if you scroll down in that post you will see the measurements.  I followed the metric measurements.  I didn’t bother trimming off the 4 or 5 mm that Sam suggested.  It is not really necessary.  It is just the cutest box and way easy, so go and make yourself some!  The circles layered with the flowers are punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle and 1 3/8″ circle.  The greeting is from ‘Simply Sketched’ and I just finished the card and box off with some Crisp Canteloupe ruffled ribbon and some pearls.

Now you can head to your next stop.  Go and see the wonderful creations that Libby has in store for you here.
