Autumn/Winter Mini Blog Hop



Hi there and welcome to the ESAD Autumn Winter Mini Bog Hop. You will probably have just come from Peggy's blog but if not just hop on from my blog and follow it around. 

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.

Now on to what I have created to show you today. I have decided to use the stamp set Apothecary Art and the new Framelits dies to go with it. I am loving this set of course since there is colouring to do. Also the set Bordering on Romance as I have used the framelits on these 2 cards as well.

 I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and loved it so here is my version.The flowers look great with tiny pearls on them.

I coloured this one last week and then last night quickly put it together using some of the pretty satin pleated ribbon. The paper is Twitterpated.

 Bordering on Romance. This card I have used the framelits die to cut out the centre piece and then the Edgelits die to cut the edges and then placed Poppy Parade under the edge. I have left the front mostly white and embossed it.


 This final card I have used Blushing Bride and Pool Party. Also I have used the new Edgelits die and matching embossing folder. Aren't they just lovely.
Now its time for you to hop on over to Carolyn Bennie's Blog to enjoy more lovely cards. I have more cards ready for my launch tomorrow so come back in the next day or so to check them out.
thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful cards!

Andrea, stunning as always! I like the idea of adding a banner if the sentiment is a bit long for the stamp, how good is that. Also love your third card, beautiful with the edgelits and with the window in the middle of the card.
