ESAD Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop for the new 2024-2025 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. For my project today I am using the Country Birdhouse bundle which can be found from pages 48-51 of the catalogue and is part of the Country Woods mega suite.

I began the process for creating this card by stamping the birdhouse in Moody Mauve. This was watercoloured using several mauve shades and some Basic Bege for a neutral. The roof and base of the birdhouse was die cut from Fluid 100 Cardstock and individually watercoloured to achieve different effects.

The bird was stamped in Stazon ink and watercoloured in Highland Heather, Petal Pink and Basic Beige for the beak and feet.

On the matte layer I stamped the leaves from the Spotlight in Nature stamp set and coloured them in with Lemon Lime Twist, Light Old Olive and Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends. Additional leaves were die cut using the Stippled Roses dies from Basic White Cardstock and I blended the ends with Old Olive ink using a Blending Brush.

I filled in the leaves with die cut flowers which were cut out from Basic White and Pretty in Pink Cardstock. The White flowers were blended with Highland Heather and Petunia Pop ink to give variation.

Some Linen Thread, a heat embossed sentiment and shiny sequins finish off this card which was such a joy to create.

I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared today. Full list of products are available at the bottom of this post.

Esad 2019 Holiday Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Hello,

I’m so glad that you have stopped by my blog today. A Group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook group are blog hopping showcasing the beautiful products in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalogue. 

ESAD Blog Hop Holiday Catalogue 2019

Let it Snow Suite

I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours. 

Snowman Christmas card with matching gift box

My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects. 

Mercury Glass Designer Acetate

The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning.

Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle

The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all. 

Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP.  I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect. 

Cube Pull out gift box Easy to make

The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.

Details for creating the box can be viewed HERE

Esad So Long Old Favourites Blog Hop

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my blog- Stamping Flair. Today, I am participating in a blog hop with other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from the Facebook Group ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators). We are highlighting some of the retiring products from the Annual and Occasions Catalogues and bidding them a fond farewell. You are going to find lots of inspiration as you hop along with us. 

ESAD 2019 April So Long Old Favourites Stampin' Up Blog Hop

My chosen stamp set is Tuscan Vineyard which has been a favourite of mine.I love the beautiful scene depicted in this set and the accompanying images that carry the Mediterranean theme. 

I started off with a piece of Glossy White cardstock and applied a wash with 2 of our retiring In-Colours – Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide. Once this dried, I stamped the swirl border in Fresh Fig. Then I used the swirl image from another of my favourite stamp sets – Timeless Textures, inked up sections of it with Versamark and heat embossed in gold to create a luxurious feel.Timeless Textures has been well used in my craft room and I love the various textures and distressed looks this stamp set offers. 

The images from Tuscan Vineyard have been coloured with several Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut. These combine to create a lovely focal element on the card. I layered all these together on a piece of Basic Black cardstock which has been embossed with one of the Petal Pair embossing folders. You get 2 in this set – one floral and one with leaves of which I chose the folder with leaves as it reminded me of vines.

The Crumb Cake die cut at the back has been a favourite die of mine from the Eclectic Layers Dies. It cuts the image into the cardstock but for this card I cut around it so it could add texture against all those elements. 

Hope this inspires you to work with some of these beautiful retiring products which for me, will always be on my favourites list.
