ESAD Retirement Blog Hop

Hi there,
Once again I am taking part in the ESAD Blog Hop. This time for retiring product. I love being part of these blog hop's as it makes me remember to actually photograph my cards and post them for you to see. Anyway you may have come here from Kelly's Blog or just starting here. Just hop on round until you get back here and see what all the other talented ladies of ESAD have made to show you.

“What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and is a facebook group just for Australian and New Zealand Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends and
blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD
Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas& friendship and we're always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to leave me a comment with your email address then I'll contact you with information on how to join our group.”

My first set of cards are made using the retiring Lattice Bigz die and also the Square Lattice embossing folder. I have used the window framelits also and the retiring little leaves sizzlet. I love the Square Lattice embossing folder for the faux fabric technique that I have done on my cards. 

 This card above I used the retiring set Peaceful Petals for the flower. Another set I love.

One of my favourite type of stamp set is flowers so of course I had to use Field Flowers one more time before it goes. I also love the background stamp En Francais so that is what I used for the background. I also used the retiring In Colour Midnight Muse. 

My good friend Pat taught us the Joseph's Coat technique at one of our camps so I decided to use that idea and cased her card but used the retiring Gently Falling. I only used the first layer stamp. The colours are Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie with Early espresso over the top. The greeting is from the retiring set Bring on the Cake.

and wait theres more.... 
This next card I have cased completely as I had only a few minutes to make this card using the lovely set Betsy's Blossoms so I did what so many people do and searched on Pinterest and I loved this card. I only changed one thing and that was the greeting and I used the retiring set Perfectly Penned here.
I just had to go and search again for this card to see who made it and it was Tawnya Bonnell.

Well that is all I have for you today. I hope you have enjoyed checking out my blog. Now its time to hop on over to Kathyrn's Blog and continue on around. Thank so much for stopping by.
