ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the ESAD Annual Catalogue Blog Hop. We're so excited to share our creations with you and we're certain that you will find great tips and inspiration. 
As with any new catalogue I make my wish list by looking over the catalogue a number of times before I do an order, (it's amazing how many things you don't see on your first or even second look at the catalogue). My "final cut" for my first is rated from the items I list the most to the least, and the Flowers of Friendship Bundle was right up there, a particular sample creation really took my eye, and today that sample is the inspiration of my card.


My rainbow consists of Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, So Saffron & Pale Papaya, with So Succulent leaves, I've used both Light & Dark Stampin' Blends to colour each element.



I traced a light circled onto the embossed layer to assist with laying out the flowers, then filled gaps with leaves. I used both Mini Dimensionals and Glue Dots to adhere the elements once I was happy with placement.



I also used the new Banner Pick a Punch with the sentiment, then to finish the flowers with a touch of bling I added Elegant Faceted Gems - I really like the checkered finish on these gems, just perfect for these flowers. 
TIP: a must when creating this card is to line up your stamped images for punching - not only is it a great time saver, you also don't waste cardstock.

  10. I love the simplicity of the look of your project, but when you look closer there are well thought out elements. Love the embossed panel behind the wreath to add interest but not detract from it.

Color Fusers Blog Hop | March 2022

Hello crafters, welcome to this month's Color Fusers Monthly Blog Hop! This month, our colors include Evening Evergreen , Soft Succulent and Rich Razzleberry .  I can't remember the last time I got inky with Rich Razzleberry, and Evening Evergreen could use a bit more love too so this Colour Challenge is quite timely for me. I decided to make a floral arrangement with the Flowing Flowers stamp set ,  using Evening Evergreen for the leaves and sentiment, with Soft Succulent on the dots - I added some finer dots of Soft Succulent by flicking the edge of my Stampin Write marker. I used Gilded Leafing to add touches of gold throughout the card front and a bow the Open Weave Ribbon , lastly adding  Genial Gems to compliment the other embellishments. Be sure to continue on through the rest of the Color Fusers Blog Hop by clicking the button below for lots more inspiration using this month’s colors.

Hand-Penned Thanks

Hello crafty friends, todays card is for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop, our  Blog Hop Theme: Thank you This month I will be treating my customers with a thank you card featuring the Hand-Penned Suite.  Below is one of the Thank You cards you may receive when shopping with me this month - May 2021. This is one of my "go to" layouts when using DSP, and dressed up with the gorgeous scalloped edge die it has wow and comes together in a jiffy. After stamping the sentiment (I wish I could write like this) all that is left to do is  adhering scalloped edged card fronts by popping them up on dimensionals, then a touch of bling with rhinestones. So if live in Australia, and would like to receive a Hand Penned Thank You card from Sue Vine - simply place an order with me this month! Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project. Continue through the list below of fellow demonstrators who are all working on building our businesses and having fun

Artfully Composed with the All Star Tutorial Team

Hello crafters, a new month, means a new All Star Tutorial. This month we are showcasing the Artfully Composed suite from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue. The All Star Tutorial Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. I've pretty much used a green theme for my Artfully Composed cards so far, so today I have something different for you.... you guessed, a touch of pink! Blushing Bride with Crumb Cake is a beautiful combination, and I've added a little Soft Suede too. I randomly stamped the card base ad background with 2 stamps from Artfully Layered, then added the border die. I cut the outline dies and created the arrangement under the top edge of the sentiment layer, and to finish added a Lined Tread bow and some Elegant Faceted Gems for a touch of bling. Artfully Composed Inspiration Below is a sneak peek of what’s in store with this month’s Tutorial Bundle. You’ll

Sand & Sea All Star Tutorial Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this months All Star Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop featuring the Sand & Sea suite. I had so much fun creating my tutorial card, I used the same background technique for this card - you will never get any 2 cards identical, so if you like something that is unique, this may be for you to try.  I didn't use the embossing folder for today's card, just the single die cut to get my 3 seafloor elements. I first stamped them, then coloured with Stampin' Blends. Be sure to continue through the list below to see more creations from the Sand & Sea Suite from the design team: Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed viewing my project.

Sweet Talk with All Star Tutorial Team

Hello crafters, the new year is here and so is the All Star Tutorial Team. This month we are showcasing the Sweet Talk suite from the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalogue. The All Star Tutorial Design Team not only design a Tutorial Project that’s exclusive but we also each design an additional project to share here for further inspiration. Today I have a Valentines Shaker card for you - I haven't made a shaker for quite some time, they are super fun! I embossed the bottom layer of the card front using the Gingham Embossing Folder, then using one of the Basic Borders dies cut my "shaker layer". Once I had stamped the Sentiment I positioned 3 large Sweetheart dies. Next I trimmed a layer of Poppy Parade to size to put under the hearts. Next I added a window sheet to the Basic White front, then used Foam Adhesive Strips to give lift and space for the shaker bits (Sequins for Everything). After adding the red sequins, I carefully exposed the adhesive and popped the Poppy Parade laye
