Hello and welcome to a very exciting blog hop for you tonight. The holiday catalogue is almost here and so we are sharing a bunch of sneak peak projects to inspire you in your holiday paper crafting.
We have an amazing line up of ESAD demos sharing their work tonight. Whether you are starting your night here or you have started elsewhere, make sure you keen clicking the next button until you are back where you started. What is ESAD you might be asking? We are a bunch of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators based in the South Pacific who love sharing our creativity and ideas.
Tonight I have a couple of cards to share with you, both using the brand new stamp set #Elfie. This is a super cute set combining line art and sentiments. It is a perfect set for those that love to colour and this collection of elves are perfect for your holiday cards
The first card I made uses the small ‘no peaking’ elf. The front panel (in Pool Party card stock) has circles die cut out to give the elf something to peak through. I added some gold foil borders (cut using consecutive layering circle dies) and a few of the gift images from the same set.
The sentiment (gold embossed on Bermuda bay card stock) is from Itty Bitty Christmas – another new set.
The second card I made uses poppy parade card stock (embossed with the subtle embossing folder) but again features gold foil and coloured elves.
The sentiment for this card actually comes from another new stamp set called Birds of a Feather. I embossed this in gold and cut it out using the Stitched rectangle dies.
I hope you enjoy tonight’s projects, click below to visit the wonderful Lou – the next blog in this hop, and if you get lost there is a list of everyone participating below.
