Hi and welcome the first ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) blog hop for 2020. We are showcasing products from the new Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up!. There are so many beautiful products to choose from so I decided to pick some from the the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms suite. They are already coordinated for me - that means less thinking and faffing about and more crafting! How gorgeous are these products! The easiest way to see the products that I used is to follow this link where you will find them all listed - and of course you can just add all of the items to your cart and have them sent straight to your door!
I have used the Forever Blossoms Bundle to make this Tent Fold card. They are super easy to make. You can find the instructions on how to make one in this post from 2015 (seems so long ago!). The Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder is just so detailed, deep and gorgeous. I have used Champagne foil for my embossed piece. It coordinates with that gorgeous new ribbon and those Champagne Rhinestones!
This is a neat card fold that is great for cards that you want to stand up and display. There is even room on the back for a large message panel.
And of course it folds flat to fit into a standard Australian C6 envelope. The images have been stamped in Crumb Cake and coloured with Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends. The stamped images have shading already so it is a handy guide for where you need to add the darker blend.
Wondering which set that sentiment is from? Well ..... I got it for free from the Sale-a-bration brochure. For every $90 AUD that you spend you get to choose something for free from it. The Forever Blossoms bundle is $92.50 so I was able to get the Happy Birthday to You stamp set. It has great sentiments in a font and size that I love. Follow this link to order your products and get some great free things. Add in some ink pads, card stock, ribbon etc and you may be able to get 2 (or 3 or 4) free products.
Make sure you complete the hop. There are 22 of us showcasing the latest Stampin' Up! products so you are sure to get lots of ideas and find so many things that you just have to have! Next up is Libby Dyson. Can't wait to see what fabulous creations she has to show us!
