ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  It’s a busy night as I’m participating in two Blog Hop’s tonight.  The first Hop is with ESAD.  What is ESAD I hear you ask?

ESAD

I’m joined by 25 lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we’re going to bring you some Christmas inspiration using new products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Katrina Duffell, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you complete the full Hop, there’s a Participant List at the end of my post just in case you get lost along the way.

2018 Holiday Catalogue

The 2018 Holiday Catalogue starts on the 5th of September and runs until the 2nd of January 2019.  The first thing on my wish list was the Dashing Deer Bundle and the Shimmer Paint so I thought I’d combine these two items for my project today.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Dashing Deer Shimmer Paint Stampin' Up!

I’ve made four cards as there’s four colours of Shimmer Paint.

Bright Copper Shimmer Paint

I’ve inked up the antlers with my Black Ink Pad then I’ve painted the Shimmer Paint directly onto my stamp with a small paint brush then stamped it onto my card stock.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold Foil and Copper Foil.

Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint

I’ve painted the whole stamp with Shimmer Paint for these two cards.  I’ve used Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Silver Foil and Champagne Foil.  The little bows on the reindeer’s necks are die cut from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

It’s hard to photograph the Shimmer on the cards.  They look much better in real life than in my pictures.

My assistant, Marvi, not only helps out when I’m photographing my cards, he’s quite helpful when I’m typing my Blog too.  If there’s any spelling errors I blame him lol.

ESAD Designer Series Paper buy 3, get 1 FREE Promotion Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Animal Expedition Stampin' Up!

ESAD Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s a busy Sunday evening this week as I’m taking part in two Blog Hops tonight.  For the first hop I’m hopping with 18 other talented ESAD members from Australia and New Zealand, showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  You may have hopped over from the very talented Nicole Wilson, thanks for continuing on with me.  There’s a Participant List at the end of my post just in case you get lost along the way.

SU Buy 3, get 1 free

For the month of July Stampin’ Up! has a promotion on their DSP, Buy 3 and get 1 FREE!!!   You have a choice of 10 fabulous new DSP’s from the current Annual Catalogue.  Included in the promo is Nature’s Poem, Twinkle Twinkle, Under the Mistletoe, Animal Expedition, Best Route, Petal Promenade, Tranquil Textures, Garden Impressions, Tropical Escape and my favourite, Wood Textures.

I’ve used two of my favourite DSP’s, Animal Expedition and Wood Textures to create this double easel card.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Animal Expedition Stampin' Up!

My inspiration comes from Patty Bennett and her Tropical Chic card.  I’ve changed her measurements to suit Australian A4 card stock.  If you’d like the measurements please send me a message and I’ll email them to you.

 I’ve layered Animal Expedition DSP over Shaded Spruce card stock.  My card base is Grey Granite.  One of the many wonderful things about SU products is the co-ordination.  Did you know the Animal Friends Thinlits co-ordinate with some of the animals on the DSP?  That’s right, you can just die cut them straight from the DSP!!!

Stampin' Cat ESAD Animal Expedition Stampin' Up!

I’ve used the Stitched Labels Framelits Dies on some Wood Textures DSP then stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Detailed With Love stamp set on some Whisper White card stock.  I’ve cut around my sentiment then adhered it to the back of a Wooden Frames Element.  The leaves are die cut from Animal Friends Thinlits in Shaded Spruce and Lemon Lime Twist.

Don’t you just love those cute little frogs sitting on a tree branch?  I’ve been making a few cards with animals on them lately and Marvi, my assistant, has been keen to help.   My poor Kangaroo and leaves didn’t stand a chance lol.

ESAD 2018 Annual Catalogue Launch Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Varied Vases

Stampin' Up! Catalogue

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  Tonight I’m hopping with some very talented ladies for another ESAD Blog Hop for the launch of the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Catalogue.  You may have started with me or you may have hopped over from the lovely Carolina Evans.  Click on the next button at the bottom of my post to continue your way around.  You won’t want to miss seeing any of these amazing projects we have for you tonight.

There are so many wonderful new products in this Catalogue I had a hard time choosing which one to use.  In the end I picked Varied Vases.  This stamp set has 34 photopolymer stamps and a matching punch.  You can buy it in a bundle and save 10%.

Varied Vases

Stampin' Cat ESAD Varied Vases
I’ve made some cute little note cards measuring 9cm x 9cm using the new 2018-2020 In Colours.  The note cards all feature the same vase and flower from Varied Vases.  I’ve created the background using my acrylic block.  First I stamped the vase image in Basic Black then while the stamp is still on the block I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the block.  Then I removed the vase stamp from the block and stamped my block directly over my vase image, creating a really easy background.  I then stamped the flowers.
