ESAD Autumn/Winter blog hop

Wow two posts in one day! Im very excited to be part of my very first Blog hop with 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.

Youve just come from Leonies  beautiful creations and Ive used a few of the same new products from the New Autumn/Winter mini catalogue as well. This mini starts today! You can see the new mini here.. Autumn mini 2012

Okay these are what I made at Stampcamp a couple of weeks ago using the new gorgeous Twitterpated DSP and Riding Hood Red pleated ribbon..I just LOVE it and bought all of the rolls available when I put my preorder in! The box and 4×4 card set was finished off with Bordering on Romance stamp set and a bit of watercolouring. I didnt use watercolour paper for it though..and used the Confetti White leftovers from my base cards to stamp and watercolour with.  I was quite surprised how well it took the ink without pilling it I learnt something new!  I love to fussy cut so cut these out and used our new Blossom punch on the box. Theres a lovely matching stamp set with it, but I havent got that yet..unfortunately.. couldnt afford all of my wishlist in one go.!

Not finished there..I got to play with my new Framelet dies, edgelet dies and matching embossing  folder with this card. The matching stamp set is Apothecary Art.  I finished it off with some new island Indigo Bakers Twine and someTwitterpater designer buttons.. Im a sucker for buttons so had to pop them in my order.

Righto on the next stop ..we are off to see Libby Dysons beautiful creations.

    Delys these are gorgeous. I love Bordering on Romance and love what you have done with it. Also thanks for the tip on using Confetti White to watercolour. Will have to give it a go.

    WOW a beautiful collection Delys. I particularly like the simple stamping of the Apothecary Art without any additional colouring. It looks very effective. So glad you could join us on the hop. TFS and inspiring.

    Delys, love your beautiful cards. I especially love the 4×4 cards. I was particularly taken with the size of the border, with just a square of DSP in the middle with the stampset that I did’nt think much of when I first saw it but now I soooo want it. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheers Donna Zammit 🙂
