ESAD Blog Hop – Annual Catty

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog, I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far and enjoyed Emily Campbell’s post.

It has been a crazy few weeks in my house with three birthdays and two birthday parties. It hasn’t been easy with half of my family being sick last week, and trying to organise my sons party at the same time.

In May I was lucky enough to attend convention in Brisbane and was even luckier to win a prize patrol, in this pack I won the Beautifully Baroque stamp, embossing folder and a pack of DSP called Eastern Elegance so thats what I have used as my sample. I also attended a team training last weekend where we made swaps so I have included a few samples from my fellow team mates.

I have a card made from a new stamp set called Beautifully Baroque. It also includes the matching embossing folder and DSP called Eastern Elegance. It is quite a large stamp but I loved having a play with it and found embossing it in white and then sponging over it gave the best image.


This card is using the same stamp, embossing folder and DSP but was made by Irene Wardlaw:


And here are a few cards also made by demonstrators in our team using the stamp set called Sketched Birthday:

First one is by Vicky-Lee Mueller


This one was made by Paula Reid:


And the last one was made by Rosie Dunn:


Thank you for stopping by and your next stop is over at Amity Knight for some more great crafting creations.
