ESAD Retiring Blog Hop



Hi guys,

You may have arrived here from Karen Rogers blog or just a general visitor either way feel free to hop on board the ESAD blog hop. A bunch of 25 blogs all with great ideas using retiring product from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue

What is ESAD?


ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstra
tors" 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 fee free to click here to join our wonderful group

Today I have to share with you is a "One Sheet Wonder." I love doing these as they really show case a stamp set and help use up scraps and make a whole heap of simple cards in one go. So what I did was I chose a stamp set in this case Petal Pizzazz (A fav of mine, sniff sniff) and an A4 sheet of cardstock and stamped the whole sheet in different colours and stamps until it was covered. (I masked the Melon Mambo flower to add the leaves) I then cut them up into all sorts of shapes and made a whole set of 6 cards. I also made a matching box which holds all 6 cards and 6 envelopes perfectly. Fantastic for a simple gift. Here is the whole set of box and cards.



And then each colour set of cards. I had heaps of fun playing around with the layouts.







Stamp Set: Petal Pizzazz (Retiring, sniff sniff), Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink: Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Cardstock: Whisper White,
Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Tasteful Trim XL die, Big Shot, Word Window Punch
