ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

hi there and welcome to ESAD's Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. You may have hopped here from Jenny Humphries Blog or if you are starting here then you can hop around all 25 blogs from here. 

I have been playing with some of the SAB sets and love Bloomin' Marvelous as well as the Sycamore Street DSP. With the first card I decided to cut out a section of the DSP and use it as a border on the card and then cut the blue flower out a couple of times and added a couple of rhinestones to bling it up. The second card is using the same idea and when I turned the scrap piece that was left over I found the Razzleberry paper in little half circles so I decided to add that in as well. I also tried the technique of embossing with an area not embossed for the sentiment . 

The next 2 cards are done with Bloomin' Marvelous and using tangerine Tango and Island Indigo. Just some simple stamping on both. The second one was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Julie Davison. 

I have other cards I could show you but don't want to overload the hop. I will post them in the coming week for you to see. 

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 its time to hop on over to Anne's Blog

Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to leave a comment for everyone as we all love to hear your thoughts on our cards.

One last Patterned Party card.

This is the last of the 5 cards I made using Patterned Party. I used the Apothecary Art Framelits and the coordinating pricking mat. Also the embossing folder Fancy Fan and the DSP Floral District. It has been so long since I used tempting Turquoise that I decided to use it for this card.  

Well that is all of this lot of cards. Now I am going to start on some 
Sale-a-bration samples.

Pick an age....

Hi there, 
this next card is one that I will colour in the right candle in the strip at the bottom of the card. If it is for someone over 9 then you can colour in 2 of the candles.I used the Big Shot die Tasteful Trim to separate the balloons and the candles. If you need a "0" in your age you can make sure that fits in or change to a landscape card. Colour's are Marina Mist, Real Red and Old Olive.

I hope your Sunday is an enjoyable one.

Party time.....

Hello again,
this next card is another great one for kids. A very quick and simple card to make.

Another Patterned Party

Hi again,
As promised here is the second card I made using the set Patterned Party. This one is a case from Jennifer. I changed the colour to Wisteria Wonder. I love the softness of this card. I didn't cut out any of the balloons this time and used Markers to ink the stamp. 

See you again tomorrow for the next card.

Patterned Party

Hi there, 
On New Years day my friend Marthea came to visit and we made 5 different cards using the set Patterned Party. I am planning on making at least 5 cards with each set that I pull out of my collection to use. 
I made this card for my little great nephew who turned 1 today. I hope he likes it. The inside is a pop up present. I have used some retired DSP for these cards. 

I also made a second card so I could keep one for my samples. I love this set for birthdays of all ages. I will show you the others in the next few days.
take care

I'm actually going to make some cards today. I plan to use all the stamp sets I have, that have never seen ink, this year. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you.
