ESAD Sale-abration blog hop

Hello and welcome to the ESAD Blog hop featuring items from the January to June Mini & Saleabration catalogues. What's ESAD, I'm glad you ask:

Today I'm showcasing the DistINKtive Flowing Flowers stamp set, not only are the flowers beautiful, but so is the variety of fonts and sentiments in the set.

I lightly traced the edge of a small plate for a guide for my stamping, using daubers I applied a Polished Pink and Just Jade.

I used 2 complimenting Stitched so Sweetly dies to enhance the sentiment, embossing the larger of the 2 with with Tasteful Textures embossing folder. To complete, I added coordinating Open Weave Ribbon and Genial Gems for a touch of bling.

For my second card I used a variety of colours, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Soft Seafoam and Balmy Blue.

For this sentiment I used a Hippo Happiness die -stamping, embossing then cutting with the die. I added a scrap of Soft Seafoam card stock before embellishing with coordinating Open Weave Ribbon and Opal Rounds for a hint of bling.

Fancy Folds Stampers Showcase - Hues of Happiness Circle Easel Card

Hello there crafters! You are going to love today's Stamper Showcase Blog Hop - we are all featuring FUN FOLDS, I just love a fun fold, I should really do more of them! I decided to a Circle Easel Card, it's a smaller card, but I think you will agree is just super cute, and with the Hues of Happiness DSP is just Gorgeous! This card is a relatively simple for a fun fold and comes together very quickly - I think I spent more time doing the floral arrangement than the actual fun fold itself. I took advantage of being able to die cut images directly from the Hues of Happiness DSP - I love it when we can do this with DSP, and aren't the flowers just stunning! I took 3 different flowers and some foliage and arranged to fit within the Basic White Circle cut from the largest circle die in Layering Circles Dies set, and the largest scallop die is used for the coloured section of the card. To create the card base you need to fold a piece of card stock and positon the largest die slig

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.

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

Awash with Beauty with the All Star Tutorial Team

Hello crafters, a new month, means a new All Star Tutorial. This month we are showcasing the  Awash with Beauty 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 made the gorgeous Awash in Beauty DSP and dies a focus for my project today. I placed an adhesive sheet on the cardstock before cutting the lattice, making is easy to adhere to the pretty blue DSP background. I used the dies to cut images directly from the DSP, as well as a little piece of Basic White foliage in my floral arrangement. I used one of the dies from the Fabulous Frames die set for the focal point, adding a layer of vellum in the "window" before arranging the die cut flowers. I finished by adding the sentiment strip, twine and Iridescent Pearls for a touch of bling. Awash with Beauty Inspiration Below is a sneak peek of what’s in
