ESAD 2016 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to you! I hope that you've gotten lots of inspiration so far along the hop and I'm sure that you will get some more along the way.
The 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is here and has been live worldwide for a few days now! I just love this amazing catalogue and I hope you love it as much as I do!
To mark is wonderful occasion of a new catalogue my lovely friends and I from the Facebook group ESAD  have decided to do a Blog Hop to showcase the fabulous products from this awesome catalogue. 

You may have joined me from from my friend and fabulous upline, Liv Ingle, or you have started here with me Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 24 other fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. So grab your beverage of choice, get comfortable and get ready for the hop!
I've made two cards today for you using my must have bundle from the Holiday Catalogue, Star of Light. The bundle consists of the Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight Thinlits Dies and it is amazing!!!! 

 I've tried to use similar elements and colours on both cards but trying to make them look different at the same time.


I've started on the first card by embossing the gorgeous starry swirl image with copper embossing powder on Kraft cardstock. Its so pretty just like that! I've then stamped one of the star images on Dapper Denim, embossing it with clear embossing powder. I've then layered some DSP and vellum circles cut using the Layering Circles Framelits dies and added some other embellishments to finish it all off. Pretty!


The second card, I started with making a Dapper Denim watercolour wash background on Shimmery White cardstock and then splattered some Gold Wink of Stella over the denim wash. I thought that the Dapper Denim looked fabulous as a night sky and the Gold Wink of Stella splatters represented the twinkling stars in the sky. I've hand stitched some Copper Metallic Thread around the DSP circle and layered the intricate star on a vellum star. You can't see it here, but keep scrolling down, I've brushed Clear Wink of Stella over the Kraft star. Who says you can have too much sparkle and shimmer? Not me I say!







I've got 2 Christmas cards made now, lots more to go!
I hope the ideas are now flowing for you to start your Christmas cards.

Next on the hop is Emily Campbell for some more Holiday Catalogue ideas. Head on over to see what she has made and please make sure that you leave some comment love along the way. We all really enjoy what you think of our creations.
