I hope you're ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! You had better go grab yourself a cuppa (or you may need to get yourself a refill, I'll wait while you go! ~ pause ~) as you'll be hopping for a while!
What is ESAD?
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 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 Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
This blog hop is to promote items from the just released Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! so have a look at what I have made using the Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (used with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine), the Pillow Box Bigz Die and the beautiful new Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.
With my card above I embossed the Manhattan Flower onto Orchid Opulence cardstock and then cut around the edge before adhering it to a piece of Cottage Wall DSP and then onto my card front.
With the Pillow Box I embossed the Manhattan Flower to give the box added texture...
With this boxed card set that I made (pictured below) I used the One Sheet Wonder (OSW) technique that I like to make bulk cards quickly, although this time I did not use a template. I simply used one sheet from the Cottage Wall DSP range and cut it up to first decorate the box top and sides (box was made using the new Rich Razzleberry In Color) and then I simply cut the the remaining piece up to decorate 6 cards to coordinate as a set.
To see each of the cards individually click here to go to my gallery displaying them all separately or view them via the slideshow below.
If you would like to see or experience any of the new items I have used or others that are available in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue then contact me today!
