ESAD Autumn-Winter Mini Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I didn't get around to showing you some cards made with the Topsy Turvey Celebration set, as I mentioned on my last post. Things just sort of went a bit pair shaped here and they didn't get made.

Well today is the first day of our new mini catalogue. Whilst I am always sad to see one finish it does mean that there is a lot of fun and new stuff to play with. Boy is there a lot of fun and new stuff to play with in this mini!!! I think I have purchased something off nearly every page.

Today the lovely ladies from ESAD are taking you on a blog hop of some of the gorgeous products available in the mini.

What is ESAD, I hear you ask?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.
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 it is needed.
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.

You should have arrived here from the very talented Jane Norris. If you haven't don't worry you can still complete the blog hop by clicking on the links at the end of each post. I have also included a list with all the blogs participating at the end of my post.

So go grab yourself a cuppa and sit back and enjoy, oh and please don't forget to leave a comment. We love comments.

I am predominately a card maker so when I look at a stamp set, I am always thinking and wondering if I can make at least four cards from the one set. Today I am going to show you a couple of stamp sets - Bright Blossoms and Loving Thoughts. I have also teamed them with the gorgeous Twitterpated DSP, pleated Satin Ribbon and I have also used the Edgelits Dies on a couple of the cards.

Here are the set of cards I made.

I have also taken individual pictures of the cards for a closer look.

Naturally you can't just have a set of cards without putting them in something so I made a wallet to fit them in.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Loving Thoughts
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Island Indigo, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write, Island Indigo Stampin' Write, Riding Hood Red Stampin' Write
Other: Edgelits Die, Scallop Border Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Circle Punch from Itty Bitty Punch Pack, 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze, Baja Breeze Seam Binding.

The next stop on the hop is the amazing Pauline Bennetts so hop on over to her blog and leave her some love.

Thanks for looking.

I love that you have used Bright Blossoms. I think your "must be able to make 4 cards" is a great mind-set to have.

Ann G. said...

Very pretty, love that ribbon & paper combination

Nikki Stalker said...

Very nice Juliette. It's great how many of the new sets can be used with the lovely Twitterpatted DSP.

Caroline Cassidy said...

Hi Juliette, these cards are gorgeous, I am really loving the twitterpated DP, I originally didn't think much of the Bright Blossoms stampset, but you have made some gorgeous cards with them!!! Hmmmm add to wishlist??? lol


Sylvia Buist said...

Wasn't that keen on this stamp set
as I couldn't imagine how I could use it, You've done a fantastic job of displaying the simplicity and beauty of the stamps. Well done.

Yvonne said...

Elizabeth Dyson said...

Wow Juliette, you have been a busy little deomonstrator. I love all your cards. Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration.

Juliette love how the stamp set co-ordinates with the DSP. I am so going to borrow yoru mindset about purchasing stamp sets- thinking of 4 cards you can make with the one stamp set- way too clever. If I thought like that I may have been a bit more savvy in my purcahses over the years LOL Cheers Donna Zammit :)
