Summer Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop – this time featuring products from the new Summer Mini Catalogue.

What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian 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 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

You may have arrived here after seeing some great ideas on Amy Buchanan’s blog. If you are starting here, just click on the link at the end of this post to go to the next blog, then keep on “hopping” till you have circled back to Amy’s blog.

My first project is a card using the Tropical Party stamp set and the Sizzix Square Lattice embossing folder:

Card: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette
Stamp Pads: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: Tropical Party, Cheers to You
Other: Big Shot, Top Note die, Square Lattice embossing folder, dimensionals

Photo quality is definitely not the best, but it has been overcast and raining again here, making it very difficult to get good light!

For the next card I used the new Sentimental Journey stamps and the matching Travel Journal DSP:

Card: Crumb Cake, Travel Journal DSP, Whisper White, Real Red
Stamp Pads: Versamark, Crumb Cake, Real Red
Stamps: Sentimental Journey, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Other: 1″ circle punch, word window punch, Big Shot, Sizzlets Timeless Type die, Crystal Effects (on the “P plate”), dimensionals

Next I made two simple baby cards, using the Scallop Square die in the Big Shot and the Baby Steps stamp.

For these cards, I used:
Card: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Stamp Pads: Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue
Stamps: Baby Steps
Other: Big Shot, Polka Dot embossing folder, Scallop Square die, 1/8″ white taffeta ribbon (coloured with Bashful Blue stamp pad and dauber), dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed these projects – thanks for visiting!
