ESAD blog Hop Time – Seasonal Catalogue

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far, you should have come from Yvonne walker,

I have used the Pin wheel die for my card, I also have a card made by Anna Mathieson who unfortunately had to pull out at the last minute but made this beautiful card using the swallowtail stamp.



and with the envelope. the insides of my cards always match the envelope:


Stamp: Wishes Your Way

DSP: Comfort Cafe.

Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze.

Other: Pin Wheel Die, Glimmer Brad, Twine, Dimensionals, tooth pick.

Here is another card using the pin wheel die, this card was inspired by a swap from Rachael Knight.


One of the ladies had to pull out of this blog hop due to health, so I offered to place a few cards on here using the Swallowtail stamp so here are a few samples using the swallowtail stamp, the first one was made by Anna Mathieson


She has heat embossed the butterfly with Pool Party embossing powder. and used Champagne Shimmer mist with a aqua painter and coloured it in.

Here is the second card, this one was made by Heather over at, she made this one for a team swap.

    Love your work with the pinwheel sizzlit, very cute. Another item to play with. Thanks also for the inspiration with the Swallowtail stamp. Great work

    Oops – left this comment on the wrong post!!

    That little pinwheel is so cute! I also love the idea of the Swallowtail coloured in using the shimmer paint – It looks lovely here but I can imagine it looks stunning in person as photos never quite pick up the sparkle the same way.

    Narelle I love that pin wheel and it looks great with the dsp in the first one, so hard to make a card for a boy, might have to case that one. TFS
