ESAD Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another exciting Blog Hop. This Blog Hop will feature projects from the current Holiday Catalogue and all the members in the Blog Hop belong to ESAD. Now if you’re following the hop in order, you’ve probably come from the talented Gail Kirby’s blog.

“What is ESAD?”

ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and is a Facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas& friendship and we’re always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I’ll contact you with information on how to join our group.

Now onto my projects. All my projects today feature the stamp set “The Newborn King”. I always like to show you 3 or 4 ways of using a stamp set so you can see its versatility. So, I’ve used the set on 2 cards, a Curvy Keepsake Box and a Treat Bag and I’m sure you’ll come up with a hundred more uses for this lovely stamp set.

The inside of the card and a closer look at the envelope

My second project is another card and features a totally different colour scheme but again with embossing and some added glitter with the use of stars


The products used for this card are : Night of Navy; Brushed Silver and Whisper White card with Silver Embossing and Stars (Itty Bitty Accents Pack) from the Silver Glimmer Paper. I just love Navy and Silver for Christmas.

My next project also features embossing and I’ve used the VersaMark ink pad, the Embossing Buddy and the Heat Tool for all the embossed projects. I’ve also used Blackberry Bliss card and ink and the wonderful Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot with the Magnetic Platform. I’ve attached the tag with the 1/8″ Gold Ribbon.


And another view


My last project is a dressed up Petite Café Gift Bag. I’ve stamped on the bag in Cherry Cobbler and dressed the front of the bag up with a banner cut from the Trim The Trees Designer Series Paper Stack and the Gold Glimmer Paper. I’ve also used Garden Green card for the 2 1/2″ Circle punch and Whisper White for the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. The front banner piece is designed to pull up when the bag is opened.


Adhesives used – Liquid Multipurpose Glue; Fast Fuse; Snail and Dimensionals. I hope you’ve enjoyed the projects I have shared with you in this post.
