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.

    Lovely cards, Peta. Hadn’t heard of this technique before but it’s really effective. Will definitely have to try this myself x
