ESAD 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

#stampin_cat #esad #comesailaway #memoriesandmore #stampinup

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Tonight I’m hopping with 24 talented demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand showcasing new products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue.  We are going to give you a sneak peek of some of the beautiful new products available from 4th June.  You may have come from Jo Weedon’s amazing project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.  There’s also a list of participants at the bottom of my Blog incase you get lost along the way.

I know a few of us struggle with male themed cards so tonight I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make several male cards using the new Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.   Half a pack of Memories & More Cards has made 16 cards in total.

#stampin_cat #esad #comesailaway #memoriesandmore #stampinup

There’s two sizes of Memories & More cards, 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″.  The pack includes 50 double sided cards,  4 sticker sheets and 6 beautiful 4″ x 6″ laser-cut specialty cards.  They would work well with the White Assorted Memories & More Cards and Envelopes but I’ve chosen Night of Navy for my card base as I think it’s a little more dramatic than white.

I’ve also used products from the new Come Sail Away Suite on my cards including the Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and Sail Away Trinkets.

#stampin_cat #esad #comesailaway #memoriesandmore #stampinup

These 4″ x 6″ cards are so easy to put together.  I’ve used some of the 3″ x 4″ cards over the top of some of the larger cards.  Add on a few embellishments or stickers and you’re done.

#stampin_cat #esad #comesailaway #memoriesandmore #stampinup

Because the Memories & More Cards are double sided it’s hard to choose which side to use.

#stampin_cat #esad #comesailaway #memoriesandmore #stampinup

I’ve used one of the laser-cut specialty cards over the top of a 3″ x 4″ card on the “Hello Friend” card.  Which card is your favourite?

Marvi’s not sure which one he likes the most.

It’s time to hop over to Carly Middleton’s beautiful project.  Just click on the “Next” button below.

ESAD – So Long Old Favourites Blog Hop

ESAD So Long Old Favourites

Hello and welcome to my blog.  The ESAD April 2019 Blog Hop is the first of two Blog Hops I’m participating in tonight.  I’m hopping with 24 other fabulous demonstrators showcasing some of the retiring old favourites from the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue and the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  You may have come from Jo Weedon’s amazing project, thanks for continuing on with me.  Make sure you visit all the Blogs by clicking on the “next” button at the bottom of each post.  There’s also a list of participants at the bottom of my Blog incase you get lost along the way.

I didn’t have to think too hard about the stamp set I wanted to use for this Hop.  This was the first stamp set I ever bought from Stampin’ Up!  After doing a quick Google search I found this stamp set was introduced in 2001 but sadly this year it will be retiring.  Of course I’m talking about Lovely As A Tree.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

I’ve made a set of 3 cards all using the same products.  I thought it would be good to use up some of my Silver Embossing Paste, and when I say use up I really mean open the jar for the first time lol.  Don’t panic as the Shimmery White and White Embossing Paste are still available in the new catalogue.

I thought about using the Embossing Paste like a wax seal so I spread some paste on a piece of Whisper White card stock then stamped my stamp into it.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

There was heaps of paste still left on my stamp so I thought I’ll stamp it again on a new piece of card stock.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

Then I thought about spreading the paste directly onto the stamp and stamping with it.  If you’re going to give this technique a try I have one small tip for you.  Clean the Embossing Paste off your stamps as soon as you’ve finished #askmehowiknow

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

My cards use a few retiring products.  Lovely As A Tree stamp set, Silver Embossing Paste, Tranquil Tide card stock (I’m really going to miss you Tranquil Tide), Tranquil Textures DSP and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

Here’s some close ups of the Silver Embossing Paste, it looks so much better in real life than in my photos.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

Do you like my sentiment?  It’s from the current set Itty Bitty Greetings and I’ve silver heat embossed it on Tranquil Tide card stock.  It seemed like a fitting sentiment for a stamp set that’s been loved for so long.

#stampin_cat #esad #lovelyasatree #silverembossingpaste #tramquiltextures #stampinup

Marvi was not sure which card was his favourite.  He looks a bit confused.

ESAD March 2019 Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

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.

Butterfly Elements

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.

#stampin_cat #esad #needlepointnook #butterflyelements #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

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

Old Olive

#stampin_cat #esad #needlepointnook #butterflyelements #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

And Poppy Parade

#stampin_cat #esad #needlepointnook #butterflyelements #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

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………….

#stampin_cat #esad #needlepointnook #butterflyelements #sab #diy #handmadecard #stampinup

Ha Ha, look what I did Mum!  Can you see him laughing at me?

It’s time to hop over and see what lovely Monique has created.
