ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

hello again, 
Its time for another blog hop brought to you by the demonstrators from ESAD. You may have just hopped from the talented Rebecca Scurr's blog or if you have started here then hop on round to see all the wonderful designs.

 “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.”

 Today we are showcasing the new products in the Holiday Catalogue that started on September 1st and is available until January 4th.

 I never stick to just one stamp set so I will continue in that way and show a few of my favourites. 
These first 2 are using the set All Ye Faithful. I enjoyed colouring these and made the stable using the Hardwood background stamp. The trees in the background are from Wonderland.

 I have been lucky enough to make some samples using my friends order so have had access to so much more that I would have. The trouble is once you have had a play with the stamp set you then feel that you need to have it too.
This one is Your Presents and it can be used for both birthdays and Christmas. It is a set that is made especially for the technique "Kissing" I have cut out the presents and stacked them for a birthday card.

 With this card I have used the holly from Embellished Ornaments and the greeting. The Background is sponged using one of the stencils.

 Another set that I didnt think I needed is Reason for the Season with the coordinating punch but am now thinking that I would like it. This first card is cased from the catalogue and coloured in Real Red.

I used the Softly Falling embossing Folder on this next card and also the Christmas Greeting Thinlets and Holly Jolly Greetings set. 

That will do for today as you have plenty more wonderful projects to hop around and see. Thank you for stopping by. Next on the hop is Rochelle Blok

What a beautiful selection Andrea. I always start with two Christmas stamp sets but my collection always grows by the end of the Holiday Catalogue.

Love the striped background on the ornament card Andrea. Great idea to not use the full masking. :)

What a great assortment of cards Andrea! A fabulous way to showcase a wide range of products in the Holiday catalogue. The stencilled background has caught my eye and isn't a technique I have used before, so thanks for the inspiration as it is something I am going to give a go in the near future.

Paula Reid said...

All Ye Faithful is my favourite set and I LOVE your colouring. I think the second card is my favourite. Thanks for sharing.

Rochelle Blok said...

Wow! What a great set of cards! You have been busy! Love them all! The ornament one is my favourite! Love the holly across the top and then the sponging of the strips behind the ornaments! Just fantastic! Thanks for sharing! Rochelle xo
