What is ESAD?
ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!
We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors but we share our love
for what we do with each other as Demonstrators. We run swaps,
challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are
always there to help and support each other when its needed.
So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
I hope you have been enjoying your browse through the blog tour and picked up plenty of wonderful ideas to use with your Big Shot, I have a few projects to show you and this first one uses the Milk Carton die. It's so cute and just right for filling up with goodies to make a nice gift. I have put ribbons, brads and various other bits and pieces from our catalogue inside the cartons, then made a little caddy for them, this will be a gift for one of my hostess'. I've used the new in-colour Concord Crush as well as the matching designer papers from the in-colour pack.
The gorgeous new scallop trim border punch was used, as well as the Lovely Letters alphabet, I used Tangerine Tango and Concord Crush ink.
This next project uses the Top note die and the Vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I have used the set called Artistic Etchings and the News Print designer paper.
The ribbon is 1& 1/4''Real red Striped grosgrain , I have used the Lots of Tags die set for the little tags. The inks used were Ridinghood red, basic black and soft suede. I have put some of the designer paper inside the barrel of the pen. A card is never fully dressed without an envelope, so I added a couple of matching images to the envelope to make the gift set complete.
I used the distressing tool from the cutter kit to rough up the edges of the paper, a jumbo eyelet to hold the basic black 1/4'' grosgrain ribbon.
I hope these projects inspire you to get your big shot out and get creative.
