ESAD New Catty Blog Hop

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, I hope you are enjoying all the wonderful projects designed by our talented demonstrators over at ESAD.

For my cards I have used a range of stamps and accessories from our new catalogue that went live on September 1st. This time of year for me is always so exciting, I love new ideas and being able to see all the new products that Stampin Up have released.

For my fist card I have used the new stamp set called Everything Eleanor, along side with Bring on the Cake. I have created my own Patterned paper in the colours I wanted my card in, so I started with a piece of neutrals Patterns stack paper and added a design to it using the Everything Eleanor set, if you look close you can see the ink almost resists the pattern and looks like it has been there all along. I made the flower using a scallop circle punch, I broke the fibres in the card stock and tore the card in half to make two flowers from one piece, this makes a really soft flower and uses half the amount of card stock. The ribbon is Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon. For the design at the bottom I have used a new embossing folder called Delicate Designs Folders and then cut out using the new Edgelits called Large Scallop Edgelits. The colours used here are Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse.


The inside, I always match my insides with the envelope to give that extra personal touch.


For my second card I have used the same technique for the background but this time on the Basic Black Patterns Paper. This stamp set is called Serene Silhouettes and I have teamed it up with Teeny Tiny Sentiments. I have also based my card on the same base colours but used basic Black instead of Crumb Cake. I have also used the new Textured Impressions embossing folder in the Holiday Mini called Lacy  Brocade. The sentiment is punched out using Decorative label Punch and triple layered on card stock. I have finished this one with Three basic Pearls

    now see I’d just decided not to get Everything Eleanor and now I’m not so sure! Love your cards Narelle – Thanks for participating in the blog hop and being a part of ESAD 🙂

    I wasn’t going to get Everything Eleanor – it just didn’t appeal but like Leonie I think I am going to have to rethink.

    Narelle I love your cards, the second one is my favourite, I hope you don’t mind if I CASE that one? I have to say Everything Eleanor was a last minute addition to my wish list and I am so glad I got it, I love all the images, but that big flourish is my favourite.
