ESAD 2017/18 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek Blog Hop




So exciting BUT so nerve-wracking at the same time to be a part of my very first ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) Blog Hop.
Fellow ESAD members have created 26 various projects
as a Sneak Peak
into the new catalogue which launches on June 1.

 
I made an Explosion Card -
Sounds technical BUT it isn't, it is actually very easy. 
Just a few folds really


Using 8 inch square of Whisper White Cardstock, Stamp you sentiment in the middle.
Stamp the rest of this square with matching stamp set. I used Lovely Friends 143763.
Then fold your 8" square according to these Explosion Fold Card template found on Splitcoaststampers and stick to the inside of your card base.
 I used Lovely Laurel Thinlits 143731 for the die cut flower and leaves on the front.
  Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper 144131,  In Color Powder Pink Cardstock 144251, Whisper White Cardstock 106549 and my card base is the new In Color Tranquil Tide Cardstock 144252. I used a Glitter Enamel Dot 144200
inside the die cut flower.


This Lovely Friends Stamp Set (23) comes in photopolymer which is a two step and co-ordinates with Lovely Laurel Thinlits Dies. It has the loveliest sentiments and the font is a script just to die for. With 23 individual stamps in this set you will be able to create so many beautiful cards and/or scrapbooking pages to compliment any photograph.

Please continue to hop to the next participant, the very talented -  Kim Oliver
who will show you some more beautiful projects. If you happen to miss anyone's blog there is a list below to find out what order to catch up.
