ESAD 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue sneak peek blog hop



New catalogues are always so exciting! Only a few more sleeps until you can order from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue. Roll on June 4! To get your wishlists started, the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) girls have a blog hop with a sneak peek of some of the new products. Make sure your hop around to each blog. Hope you have a large notepad ready for that HUGE wishlist!

I thought I'd showcase 2 of my favourite new colours - Rococo Rose and Pretty Peacock - and a great new stamp set called Butterfly Wishes. Oh and I threw in the fabulous Stitched Nested Labels dies too. I know they will be a firm favourite!


As with every new Stampin' Up! catalogue this new one is full of not only wonderful products but also jam packed full of inspiration. I have used the design of the card on page 18 as my inspiration. I have flipped it for my Pretty Peacock  card .....


.... and tweaked it for my Rococo Rose card. Aren't those colours just gorgeous!


I also loved how the concept artist had given the butterfly a 3D effect so added that detail in too. These are DisINKtive stamps which means that the rubber is at different heights so you get colour variation with only one inking. On this butterfly it gives great shading and definition. I stamped a second butterfly, cut out the right wing sections and adhered to the sentiment panel to give a 3D effect.


The stamps also work perfectly as decoration for the inside of the card. 


The Butterfly Wishes stamp set also has this great branch with blossoms attached. I have coloured each part in with ink and an aqua painter to get a watercoloured effect. I used my Stamparatus and just coloured one section at a time. So easy using that! And of course we have lots of colour coordinated products in the new In Colors too. I just love the Scalloped Linen Ribbon and Faceted Dots.


If you don't have a catalogue, let me know and I can get one to you. You know you need one! Make sure you check out all of the blogs in our hop. Next up the super talented Rochelle Blok.

  15. Both of these are just gorgeous but the colouring of the blossom branch on the second card is ah-mazing. Such a gorgeous effect - it really does look like it has been watercolored by hand. As always your cards are full of beautiful details everywhere, and I especially love the stamped insides. Thank you so much for all the work you did to organise this hop, it's so much fun to see what everyone has been playing with already.
