ESAD Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop



Its Blog Hop time again! My friends and I at ESAD want to show you what you can do with the beautiful Seasonal Catalogue products and excite your imagination.

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.

You may have come here from Narelle's Blog or you have just started here. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 23 other fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. So grab a cuppa and get set for the hop!

I'm no.10 on the hop and I'm so glad you could join us!

I've decided to make 3 cards today using the Oh Hello stamp set and co-ordinating Framelits Dies - Ovals Collection.

 Oh Hello Stamp Set and Oval Collection Framelits Bundle
 


My first card uses some layers of the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper also from the seasonal catalogue.

 

Don't you just love the flower trim. It's so pretty and can be dyed to any colour you want!

 
 My next card uses a few layers of the new Paper Doilies and then layering the stamped elements on top all finished off with a row of Pearl Basic Jewels.
 

 I 'fussy' cut the flower out and then popped it up on the chevron oval with some dimensionals.
 
 
 My last card I wanted to use lots of layers of the Framelits Dies - Oval Collection. I just love the way this card has turned out! Hubby said he liked this one alot too!
 
 
Here is a close up of all the ovals.

  9. Rochelle, can you believe I hadn't thought to layer the Designer Frame in the ovals! Thanks for sharing these lovely cards, might be time to get my set out and ink them up too.
    Cheers

    1. Thanks Monique! I tried to cut the designer frames oval with the Oval Framelits but it just didn't quite work. I then cut it out by hand. It does layer perfectly with the other ovals though!
