Hi and welcome to a wonderful blog hop from our ESAD facebook group. You are in for a treat as we showcase our favourite items from the Holiday Catalogue. You may have just come from my friend Leonie Schroeders blog, or starting here. There is a full list at the end of my post.
My Favourite items? Well there are many in this catalogue but I’ve decided just to pick one stamp set…The Jolly Friends stamp set and I picked it, because, it had a punch with it and I could make other things with it non Christmas (Check my blog below for other cards Ive done) Today Im going whole hog Christmas …
My first project is one I’ve done for some Christmas markets locally and also for my monthly team get together in the sunny Bay Of Plenty in New Zealand. 8 tags (all the same). I used Whisper White and coloured in the beard with a blender pen. I stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and they were all decorated up with the Tiny Treat Boxes. I love these! Just make sure you take the protective coating off the boxes.
The next project was simply just for a market. I found some Santa Italian chocolates at my local supermarket and hey quick and was easy to do and kids just adored them! I used the mica flakes on the hat and the cute bells on them too.
This inspired a card which I did in addition to my card class this week ….and in similar style. An Easel card using the new Stitched Shapes Framelits These framelits are currently on back order as they have been so popular! They will be going into the next Annual Catalogue but once the next shipment arrives you can order these.
My next project is a stamp a stack card…I altered the sentiment from the Merry Mice Stamp set for this.(moose instead of mouse) My stamp a stacks are designed to make 20 cards in a few hours …4 of each design. I decided not to put the trim on the hat to make it a bit quicker but having second thoughts on that so will be stamping and punching the trims for my own Christmas cards.
Finally, my last project is a candy cane I’m selling at my Christmas markets. My card class ladies were lucky enough to score one too!
So I hope you have enjoyed my projects and I would love comments!
