ESAD 2018 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop



Welcome to ESAD Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop.
So excited to present Frosted Floral from the 'New' Holiday Catalogue.


You will be inspired by 26 talented designers in this hop...
We are all members of the ESAD group, 
we LOVE sharing our creations with you all...
You may be starting with me or have just left Amity Knight blog.
I am sure that Amity has created a beautiful project <3







The catalogue has over 50 pages of inspiration, it went LIVE on the 5th.
All products are available until 2 Jan 2019 or until stock sold out.
This product suite is my favourite from the whole catalogue.



 
I needed a Wedding Card for this weekend, so last minute Nelly here
decided that she best create one on the day that she should be packing...
Turns out I couldn't really do much today, we got some rain
so it was a great excuse to create!!!

In the catalogue on pg 37 they have co-ordinating cardstock of
Blackberry Bliss, Gray Granite and Tranquil Tide...So pretty.
So I decided to use Balmy Blue as this was the Bridesmaids dress colour.
I do love what I created with these colours...

I used the Stamparatus to create my background of the card...
This tool allows you to position your stamp, add your ink and then stamp
Then move your plate with the stamp along the hinges to create a pattern without
having to reposition your stamp everytime... It is such a time saver.


 

Then I cut myself out the same shapes I stamped and created another layer
over to top of the stamped area...I created a template so that I could
position the diecut and stamp with making any whoopsie's.


I also used my Take Your Pick Multipurpose Tool to lift out my stamped diecuts.
This tool comes with a putty ended pick up tool, to add your sequins to your card.


AND you can buy refills for your putty end too.
 This tool also comes with a mini spatula - paper piercer - small and large stylus..
Such a versatile tool!!!


I stamped and die cut flowers, leaves to add to my card front.
Love it that Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies come with 2 small floral dies
saves you time when you can cut many flowers at the same time.


In this photo you can see how I created the background of the card with the
precision of alignment from the Stamparatus...
Have I told you I LOVE this tool


I don't think you can see in the Wishing you ALL THE BEST,
I shadow stamped with Gray Granite and 2nd generation Blackberry Bliss.
So here is a closer look...I used the Stamparatus again to make sure it was PERFECT.
 I just moved the cardstock ever so slightly, so you could see the shadow.



I had fun creating this card, I hope you liked it too <3
