Happy new year! Welcome to Stamping Flair and the ESAD Mini Catalogue Blog Hop. I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator from Blind Bight down the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.

What is ESAD

I am so excited to be able to share with you some cards that I’ve made from the beautiful new Mini Catalogue that we have and the additional Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

I’ve chosen the Tropical Oasis suite to feature today – it’s my favourite. I think it’s the beautiful colours combined with a touch of vintage and floral – everything that I just love. 


Tropical Oasis Suite, Stampin' Up!

The suite consists of a stamps and dies, Embossing Folder, trinkets, Memories & More card pack,
Burlap Trim and Saddle Brown Stazon ink  (Product Code #153941)

For my first card, I have fussy cut some elements from the Memories & More card pack. The edges of my card base and fussy cut images have been distressed with the Saddle Brown ink. I am loving this colour – it is unlike any of the browns in our Classic range.

I embossed the Whisper White cardstock with the Coastal Weave embossing folder. Doesn’t that pattern just make you feel like you’re in the tropics? Then I added Pear Pizzazz ink over it using a sponge dauber. I used the debossed side of the embossing folder which then picked up the raised lines of the pattern.

I think this card would make a great bon voyage or happy retirement card.

My next card features the beautiful stamp set and the feature flower in it. I stamped it on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper in Saddle Brown Stazon ink. Stazon ink is required when watercolouring. 

A combination of these watercolours were used for the flower and 3 leaves.

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Melon Mambo
  • Early Espresso
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Old Olive
  • Garden Green

When you’ve got another stamp set that has the word ‘tropical’ in it, the combining of products from the Tropical Chic stamp set was something that just had to be done. I love how the leaves coordinate and there’s even a sheet of DSP that matches. 

My sentiment was stamped on a label made with the Label Me Lovely punch. I extended this label and created a matte in Grapefruit Grove. You can create any size label you like. All you need is a strip of cardstock that is 5cm wide. Then insert into the punch from the top so only one end is getting punched. Do the same for the other side and you have a custom label.
