ESAD

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The ESAD March 2019 Blog Hop is the first of two Blog Hops I’m participating in tonight.  I’m hopping with 17 other fabulous demonstrators showcasing the 2019 Occasions and SAB Catalogues.  You may have come from Siobhan’s amazing project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Design Team’s Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.

Tonight I’m using the Needlepoint Nook Suite and teaming it up with the Butterfly Elements , free with any $90 purchase.  Who doesn’t like free things, I know I sure do.

I started out making just one card but I liked the layout so much I thought I’d try it in a few different colours.  Which one is your favourite?

The first card is using the pretty flowery DSP from Needlepoint Nook with the sentiment stamped on vellum.  I just love the floral stitching design on the background.

For the next three cards I’ve used the solid bolder side of the DSP.  This one is Night of Navy.

I’ve used up most the the Butterfly Elements on other cards but I had plenty of flowers and leaves left over so I’ve added one of each of them to all my cards.  The sentiments are White Heat Embossed on the last three cards.

My lovely assistant Marvi likes to pose for photos, especially for the ESAD Blog Hops.  He definitely thinks it’s all about him and not the cards.  He struck a lovely pose today but as soon as my back was turned………….

ESAD 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today I’m joined by 21 fabulous Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators for a Blog Hop featuring products from the new 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogues.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Denise Buetler, thanks for continuing on with me.

Occasions 2019

SAB 2019

I’ve been through these catalogues many times and there’s so many amazing new products.  I had a hard time choosing which bundle to use for my project.  I eventually decided to use the Forever Lovely bundle on page 5 of the Occasions Catalougue and I’ve teamed it up with the gorgeous Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

My assistant, Marvi, was pleased to pose for photos today.  He’s been on his best behaviour since I caught him unwrapping the dogs Christmas present.  Click on the link below to see how naughty he was.

I’ve made two cards for tonights blog hop, both using the Forever Lovely Bundle.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Forever Lovely Sale-a-bration Foil Sheet Stampin' Up!

The first card is a Z Fold Card.  The Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet has been die cut with a die from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.  That’s a whole lot of lovely.  This die embosses as well as cuts, if you look really closely you’ll see the embossing around the flowers.

I’ve also used some of the co-ordinating DSP, All My Love.

I think this would make a lovely Valentine’s Day card.  I’ve used the sentiments from the Forever Lovely stamp set.

The second card is using all the same products but it’s got twice as much loveliness with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet bordering the top and bottom of my card.

I’ve added a Stitched Square in Soft Sea Foam behind my sentiment.

ESAD December 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

ESAD 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?

What is ESAD?

I’m joined by 19 lovely Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand and we’re going to bring you some quick and easy Christmas inspiration using products from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  You may have hopped over from the lovely Cathy Pinchbeck, 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 Front Cover

This Christmas will be the first Christmas in 35 years that I haven’t worked in Retail.  Wow, I’m feeling less stressed than I normally do this time of year.  I’ve even got all my Christmas cards made, the tree is up and I’m feeling organised.  If you’re not that organised I’m sure you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this Blog Hop.  Don’t forget there’s only 22 days until Christmas!!!

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve made two quick and easy cards using my favourite DSP in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.  Joyous Noel Specialty DSP is so stunning with the Copper Foil accents.  I will be sad to see this DSP go.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve used a Thick Whisper White card base then adhered some DSP.  I’ve added a couple of borders to the DSP, one card has Tranquil Tide and the other Grey Granite.  There’s also a Copper Foil border on both cards.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Joyous Noel Merry Christmas To All Stampin' Up!

I’ve added some Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape to some card stock then used the Merry Christmas To All Thinlits Dies to die cut my words.  This is a quick and easy way to add a little bit more copper shine to my cards.  Adding some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock makes adhering the words super easy.

These cards look so shiny and Coppery (is that a real word) in real life.  My photos don’t do them justice.  I’ve tried to capture their shine in the next couple of photos.

The sentiments have been embossed with Copper Embossing Powder and are from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set.  I’ve used the Classic Label punch to punch them out.

I asked my assistant, Marvi, to pose for a photo and this is what I got.  We might get a better pose next time.  I think he really just wanted a tummy rub lol.

Next on tonight’s hop is Monique Fielder, you’re going to love her creation.  Just click on the “Next” arrow to hop on over.
