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.
Here are some cards I've made with some new products:
This card has been made with the set called Party This Way, which was a gift for all demonstrators that attended Convention in Sydney earlier this year (yet another perk!) The Letters have been cut out using the Big shot and the alphabet set ''Timeless Type Junior Alphabet''. The card stock is Old Olive, More Mustard and Riding hood red, the Designer paper is from the pack called"Newsprint" which contains so many yummy papers that lend themselves to be used in a shabby chic style, there are newsprints, music sheets and lots more script styles all in black and white, so you can grunge them up with some inks. The faux ribbon on the top is just some soft suede paper folded and then I drew some faux stitching over it to make it look like I had sewn on it. The little buttons on the bunting are from the "Buttons" die for the Big shot.
This next card also uses the set called "Party This Way" I have stamped the candle from this set, randomly over the Riding hood red card stock with some Versa mark ink, then sprinkled over some clear embossing powder before using the heat gun. The Green card stock is Old Olive which is mounted over some of the newsprint designer paper which is over some basic black. All those cardstock pieces were punched along the bottom edge with the scalloped edge punch. The Arrow is stamped onto some Pacific Point, the base card is More Mustard. Both of these cards were inspired from looking at Jaime Pearson's work.
This card uses the set called "Artistic Etchings" and is a definite favourite of mine from the new catalogue, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one and do some collage stamping. I've used some more newsprint DSP and I cut out the tag from the "Four Labels" set for the big shot. I've used Riding hood red, Basic Black and Soft Suede inks. The scrunched flower was made with some Riding hood red and newsprint papers, I put a rhinestone from the "Fire" pack in the centre.
This last card uses a set which has been carried over from the old catalogue, but I have used some yummy new in-colours and they are as follows: The beautiful pink is called Blushing Bride and is such a warm tone that makes it so easy to match up with so many of our colours. The green is called Pear Pizzazz, it fits fits in so well between our Certainly celery and Old Olive, it's another colour that will coordinate well with lots of our main colour families, I'm sure you will soon fall in love with these new in colours and the good news is we will get to play with them for two years. I have stamped the images from "Inspired by Nature" with Old Olive, Blushing bride and used a chocolate Chip marker direct to rubber for the domes of the flowers as well as the faux stitching. I've embellished the card with two clear Rhinestone brads.
