ESAD Info Holiday 2015

So yesterday was my wider team all team training. 33 swaps needed!

I do this everytime..come up with a swap that is time consuming!

I watercoloured the poinsettia from the Reason for the Season stamp set (139730).  and fussy cut them out that took awhile to do (since taking the photos I added some gold dazzling detail to the centre as well!)


I cut out 33 Merry Christmas Greeting Thinlits (139659)…thank goodness I also purchased the Precision plate (139684) ..which helped cut these out beautifully! I teamed it up with Kraft Cardstock, Corrugated paper, tea lace doilies, White Jute ribbon  and the new Gold cording trim (139618). Theres a fair few Dimensionals on this card just saying!


I finished off the inside with some Basic Black (140931) stamping. This new Archival ink is a winner for me love love it!


But wait..I had all these bits leftover so I made a few more items with these stamps, ink and paper..


I made a tag and used the new cute Reindeer clips (139643), metallic doily and used Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set (139882). The new Real Red Pom pom trim (139617) is just gorgeous


Then popped some of our NZ All Black chocolate (by Whittakers) into a Sketched Dot Gift Bag (138316)


And then finished up making a little wee mini album using a 6×9″ piece of Seas0n of Cheer Designer Series Paper (139590)

IMG_2517IMG_2518IMG_2519I added a pocket in one of the folds and stamped it with Joy. If I do this wee album again Id probably add more little pockets.

Phew ..youve made it to the end..Thanks for visiting my blog and now of we go to the incredibly talented Jessica Williams to see what shes come up with!

    33 lots of colouring, delicate dies & fussy cutting. Delys – that’s an amazing effort, your lucky team! Your card looks fabulous and great ideas using the leftovers. Thanks for sharing, Kelly x

    Delys, I am totally in love with every single one of your projects. You 3D designs are just amazing and your card has inspired me to take another look at purchasing the Reason For The Season stamp set. I love the black glimmer paper combined with the corrugated card and the doily… Who would’ve thought that they would go together? But they do and it looks stunning. Thanks for sharing your projects with us, Emma xo

    So glad I was part of Saturday’s swap and able to receive one of these. I love all the layering and attention to detail. I don’t have this set so nice to have a sample to show off 🙂 Thank you

    Amazing Delys! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of these! The first card is gorgeous! Love the use of the black glimmer paper! Really might have to get me some of that now! So great to make the other creations from the scrap pieces! Thanks for sharing! Rochelle xo

    I love all 3 of your projects Delys, so glad I received one of your fabulous cards as a swap on Saturday, I don’t have this stamp set yet so it’s great to have your card as a sample
