ESAD Blog Hop – Winter Mini

Good morning and welcome to my blog, today I have five cards to show you that I have made using Stampin Up products. Most are from the new mini that starts today and some (the Easter ones) also include some from our SAB’s that unfortunately finished yesterday but I made these last week and haven’t had a chance to share. Here is a little bit about ESAD.

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

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 is 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

So here is my first two cards:


Close Up: (sorry about the lighting I took these late last night)



Close Up: (lots of water-colouring, and lots of glitter paper)


The stamp set used here is called: Apothecary Art, And I have used the new Framelits here. The Sentiment is from Curly Cute.

Here is card Number three:


Don’t you just love the new DSP, and the ribbon, how handy is it to be pleated and ready to use. The purple DSP is called Sweet Shop and this is embossed. the flower is from the new Blossom Punch., And some new DSP called: Twitterpated. I have also used the new Edgelits here. If you cut both the cardstock and DSP together it will line up perfectly.


Cards four and five are some cute Easter cards I made for a ladies night out on Friday, I know these papers are no longer available but I thought I would just show you the Edgelits in Action. I can see me using these a lot, I just love how they finish the Edge.


And the inside, and of course with the envelope:
