ESAD Retirement Blog Hop

ESAD Retirement Blog Hop

ESAD Retirement Blog Hop – there are so many wonderful products on the retirement list, but be quick as it’s only while stocks last. So I’m glad you made it here to hop along for another wonderful ESAD Blog Hop. Now I’ve checked the retirement list and the stamp sets and punches I have used are still available.

So this set is Kinda Eclectic with Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder ink with the sentiment from Cottage Greetings.

This gives you a closer look at the butterflies which are punched out using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches and Pearl Basic Jewels being added to the bodies.

Also On The Retired List

Now this card uses one of my favourite sets and punches, Grateful Bunch and the Blossom Builder  Punch.  I’ve used the same inks on this card as the previous card. I just love the lace detail in this set as it’s very versatile as are the wonderful flowers. I’ve stamped them full strength first and then stamped off and punched these ones out with the pinch.

Here’s a closer view of the flower detail:

I’ve had cut this butterfly and added Pearl Basic Jewels to the flowers and the centre of the butterfly. The sentiment is from the Cottage Greeting set another of my favourites sets, especially for sentiments.

Now, make sure you visit all the other blogs in the hop to see all the inspiration and creativeness shared by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from Australasia. Also, don’t forget to grab a bargain before they’re all gone. You don’t want to be disappointed.
