ESAD Autumn/Winter Mini Blog Hop








Good morning everyone.
I hope you are enjoying the ESAD Blog Hop so far. You have come from the very talented Susan Joyce's blog

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 it's needed.

So if you are a demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

And now for my projects. In the first two cards, I have used the Medallion background stamp. This is a very versatile stamp. You can do so many different techniques with it. On the first card I have stamped on gloss card using sponges to apply ink to the rubber using perfect plum and rich razzleberry. Rich razzleberry is one of our new in colours for this mini catalogue. I have stamped the image twice, and punched out the centre using our 1 3/4" inch circle punch. I then have applied two way glue and dazzling diamonds. I have used the scallop edge border punch on the bottom of the gloss card. I have then punched out an extra layer of scallops and added them as a feature. I have used the Clean & Simple sketch challenge for this card.

Recipe for this card is:
Stamp Sets: medallion, a little birthday cheer
Ink: rich razzleberry, perfect plum, whisper white
Accessories: scallop edge border punch, 1 3/4 circle punch, 2 way glue, dazzling diamonds glitter.

For my next project I chose to do a split negative card using the medallion stamp.

I stamped twice, one using whisper white ink and the other basic black. I then ran those images through the big shot machine with the top note die. I then cut the die in half and reassembled as you can see in the card above.

Recipe for this card is:
Stamp Sets: medallion, a little birthday cheer
ink: whisper white, basic black
paper: riding hood red, whisper white, basic black.
Accessories: big shot, tope note die, word window punch

My next two cards are using the new stamp set Vintage Vogue. Again I have used the top note die with pacific point. As you can see, I have cut up the top note die. For this card I used a sketch from PageMaps

Recipe for this card is
Stamp sets: vintage vogue
ink: pacific point, baja breeze, whisper white
paper: baja breeze, pacific point, pink pirouette
accessories: big shot, top note die

The last card is using the top note die. I have folded my a5 card in half and placed on top of the die. I have placed it over to one side, making sure that the fold of the card is positioned so that it is not being cut by the edge of the die. I also cut a piece of cottage garden dsp in the same position. I cut this about 5 1/2 cm from the edge. I now assemble my card, the floral side is the top and the reverse is the bottom. I add a trim of orchid opulence using the eyelet border punch.
I stamp the "friends" stamp on the dsp, and then on whisper white. Cut out the whisper white and attach to front of card with dimensionals.
