ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you are enjoying the blog hop today. You may have come from Nikki Sadler's Blog or started here. You can hop your way around all 25 blogs by following the links. 


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


Today I have made 2 cards using the new stamp set Countryside. I love the old ute so have coloured it in Real Red for one card and Pacific Point for the other. I have used sketch challenges to help me design these cards.




The next set I have used is Cherish Friendship. I painted the apples in red and used a gate fold card. The scallop circle is from Perfect Pennants Bigz die.
I punched the edges under the striped red DSP with the Dotted scallop ribbon border punch.




Thanks for stopping by today. Now you can hop along to Keryn Campbell's blog to see the lovely items she has made.
