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!!!

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.

ESAD 2018 Retirement List Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD You Move Me Bundle of Love

ESAD 2018 Retirement List Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I’m joining 27 fellow SU demonstrators for an ESAD blog hop featuring products that are on the Retirement List.  You may have started with me or you may have hopped over from Jo Stubbings.  Click on the next button at the end my the post to continue on the blog hop and check out all the amazing projects.

I decided to choose a stamp set and die bundle that had been sitting on my shelf for a while now.  I couldn’t let You Move Me go uninked any longer.  Have you seen this bundle used before?  The image flutters when you pull it out of the envelope.

Stampin' Cat ESAD You Move Me Bundle of Love

I’ve used my favourite retiring DSP, Bundle of Love, with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (sadly, also retiring) to create my project.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted a blue or pink version so I made both.

Stampin' Cat ESAD You Move Me Bundle of Love

I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum (retiring) and Blushing Bride ink for the pink version.

And Island Indigo (retiring) and Tempting Turquoise (retiring) ink for the blue version.  I’ve added in some retiring Very Vanilla Sold Baker’s Twine and retiring Metallic Enamel Shapes also.

If you click on the links below you can see short videos of my interactive cards in action.

My assistant Marvi was quite interested in the Baker’s Twine and decided he might like to eat it.

Next on the hop is the lovely Sharon Dalton.  I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon in Sydney at On Stage.
