Good Morning everyone,
I hope you are ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better go grab yourself a cuppa as you will be looking for a while.
What is ESAD you say?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators for Stampin' Up!
We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love for what we do with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when there is a need.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
Now you may have arrived here from the extremely talented Jenny Hayward, but if you are starting here don't worry you will be able to complete the hop by clicking on the name at the bottom of each post along the way.
Today I am going to showcase just the one Stamp Set, A Little Treat, along with a couple of the new in colours that they have given us. A Little Treat is the cheapest Stamp Set in the catalogue (apart from the a la carte selection) and no I haven't chosen it just because it is cheap (if you looked at my craft room you would realise that I have nearly every stamp set in the new mini catalogue LOL), but because it co-ordinates beautifully with the Sweet Treat cups. Yes these cool cups have been carried over from the Summer Mini to this new one so I am very excited.
My first card is a Snow Globe - yes it really is water inside the cup with a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds added!!!
Materials Used: (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: A Little Treat, Tiny Tags
Paper: Melon Mambo, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery.
Other: Certainly Celery 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Melon Mambo Polka Dot 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon, Medium Jewelery Tag Punch, Silver Brad, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Sweet Treat Cup, 1 3/4" Circle Punch (carried over from Summer Mini)
