ESAD Annual Blog Hop

Don't you just love a blog hop. I love bouncing along and seeing what all the super talented people have made. This is my first Blog Hop and I'm a little excited about it all lol.

So I have taken part in ESAD's Annual Catalogue Blog Hop and we are all showing off some of the new products, that you can find in the gorgeous new catty.

Now I'm guessing your wondering Who or What is ESAD?!?!?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin Up demonstrators.

We so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group

So here is my creation from the New Annual Catty...

I have loved this stamp set before I had even seen it. The beautiful cards appearing on Google, made me want it even more. And if the gorgeous flower wasn't enough, it comes with 5 lovely sentiments.

I used a mixture of Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder for cardstock and Ink. I embossed the bloom first with Iridescent Ice and then inked over the top, a technique called Ink Resistant. I'm not sure if you can see in the photo, but I also stamped the blossom all over the Elegant Eggplant cardstock, using Versamark, to make my own patterned Paper.

I enjoyed making it so much, I'm going to have another go but changing the colours up a little. I bet it will look gorgeous in Pink Pirouette!!

Well that's it from me, but below you will find a list of the rest of the girls who are taking part in the blog hop. So much more inspiration is coming your way!!
