Hi Everyone. Welcome back to another ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) blog hop. For this one we are showcasing some of our favourite products that are retiring at the end of May. This is always a bitter sweet time. We are sad to say goodbye to old favourites but always happy to make way for gorgeous new products.
I am sure you will find lots of retiring products that you didn't know you needed as you make your way around the hop. My advice to you is to order these products as soon as possible as they are only available while stocks last. You don't want to miss out!
One of my favourite packs of Designer Series Paper (DSP) is the Floral Romance pack. I am ashamed to say that I had not used it until today! And yes .... that does mean I am writing this post with minutes to spare until we go live! It is gorgeous and will be perfect to use in an upcoming class I am teaching. I teamed it with 2 retiring stamp sets - Best Birds and Petal Palette - and some retiring ribbon, twine and pearls. You can find all of the products used in the list below and they are directly linked to my online Stampin' Up! shop for your convenience.
I had fun using different sides of the DSP and mixing and matching it. I love that some of the sheets are vellum like the Petal Pink lace piece on this card.
The Best Birds stamp set and coordinating Birds and Blooms thinlits has been a fast favourite of mine. I love the branch, blossoms and this sweet bird.
Using DSP on the inside of your cards is a quick and easy way to add decoration and that touch of colour.
I used some other designs from the DSP pack to make this simple card. I let the lovely patterned vellum be the star.
I hope that you can see why these are some of my retiring favourites. You can order directly through my online shop or you can contact me via the contact button at the top of this blog and I can pop the order in for you. You deserve a treat don't you!
Make sure your swing by all blogs in the hop. You will definitely get lots of inspiration and find products you didn't know you needed! Next up is Shannon. Can't wait to see what fab things she has created!
