ESAD - Annual Catalogue 2024-2025 Blog Hop


 It's been a while since we have had an ESAD Blog Hop, I am so pleased we are BACK.
We are a group of Australian and New Zealand Demonstrators
who LOVE to show you something NEW from Annual Catalogue


You may have started with me or joined me from Leonie Schroder's Blog

 Today we are all sharing projects made with products from the 2024-2025 Annual
catalogue released on the 1st of May this year. 
This catalogue has sooo many gorgeous suites,
the one I chose is what I call a mega suite.
My favourite is Unbounded Beauty on page 52 & 53. 

2 Stamps and 2 Dies, Flowers Of Beauty and Unbounded Love
12" x 12" Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Papers,
2024-2026 InColor Glimmer Paper and
2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots.

My card is very simple, the sentiment says it all.
Sympathy cards are not nice ones to make, BUT are necessary unfortunately.

Card Measurements - 

Petunia Pop - 9" x 4 1/8" scored at 5 7/8"
Petunia Pop - 4 1/8" x 2 3/4"
Basic White Cardstock - 4" x 2 1/2"
DSP - 4" x 3 7/8"
Basic White Insert - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

I have used Flowers of Beauty Stamp on both the inside and outside of the card
Stamping the Leaves in Summer Splash
Then the 2 step stamp to create the "hollyhock" flowers (well that is what I am calling them)
Firstly I stamped the solid image in Pretty In Pink
Then the filler flower in Petunia Pop.

I only used a very small piece of DSP for the front panel.

Both the outer and inner sentiments are from the Unbounded Love
stamped in Summer Splash

Lastly I added some 2024-2026 InColor Resin Dots on the front panel


 Up next is Denise Buetler
