Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop!

Good Morning everyone!  I've finally taken the plunge and joined in a blog hop!  I hope you’re ready for the ESAD Blog Hop!  Better go grab yourself a cuppa as you’ll be hopping for a while!

What is ESAD you say?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australian (and New Zealand) Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!

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 its 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.

If you are following the blog hop, you would have come here from the fabulous Teresa Leggo's blog and if you leave comments along the way you could be in the running to win some blog candy.

Here’s my contribution to the blog hop:

 
 


It’a another waterfall card, this time using the new Cottage Garden set from the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue.
Supplies:
Stamp set:  Cottage Garden
Cardstock:  Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Versamark
Other:  Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Antique Brass brads.

If you don’t know how to create a waterfall card, here’s a great tutorial on it.
 
For my card base I used an A5 piece of one of the new In Colours – Rich Razzleberry, which is just gorgeous.  This is scored and folded in half to make the base.  On top of that is a piece of Whisper white – 95 x 138 mm.  Next, a piece of Orchid Opulence, 85 x 128 mm is put through the Big Shot machine using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  For the waterfall piece I used Old Olive Cardstock using the measurements in the tutorial and the images were stamped on 1 ¾” sqares of Whisper White, which were then matted onto 2” square pieces of Old Olive cardstock.

Remember, if you leave a comment on every blog in the blog hop, and then email Sharlene at stampwithsharlene@hotmail.com to say you’ve done that, then you go in the draw to win some blog candy.  There will be one winner from New Zealand and one winner from Australia.  Please note, Stampin' Up! Demonstrators are not eligible to win the Blog Candy.

The next stop on the blog hop is the talented Kristine Thompson’s blog.  Happy hopping!
