ESAD Goodbye Mini Catalogue Blog Hop -

Hello and welcome, we are saying goodbye to some wonderful items from the Mini Catalogue that ends soon. You may have hopped across from  Shannon Kissane  and I can't wait to see what she has used for tonight.

Please see at the end for the full paragraph on what ESAD stands for - in short we are  Extra Special Australasian Stampin Up! Demonstrators.

Well I have been loving the Gnome for Holidays stampset on page 23.

This is such a cute setand great for colouring - I had to make a couple of cards.
First one starts with Real Red cardstock with a piece of Pool Party that has been embossed with one of the Wrapped in Textures Embossing folders (page 9). You get two folders that you can use. They are smaller & they give you a lovely 8cm wide strip for your card. I added to the embossed piece a strip of the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper (page 37) - love a bit of glitz!

Then I cut a whisper white Stitched Nested Labels die and stamped the tree house onto it and coloured in. Used the trees from the Waterfront stampset as they fitted the height I needed. Did sponging of Mossy Meadow around the trees and sponged Pool Party above for the sky. Also the words are from the same stamp set.
Then on the inside I mad a step to attach the label die too. I also glued one behind so that the Stampin' Blends ink could not be seen from the back. The words are from To A Wild Rose stampset.

My second card is a Peekaboo card (my apologies found it hard to photograph).

Attached a piece of the Plaid Tidings DSP  ( page 57) to the front and stamped the Gnomes home and coloured it in. My little girl gnome is peeking in from the back.
You see from the picture below that I tried to show how it all folds together.

Then the picture below is the inside of the card with another gnome and the hidden message that pops across so that you don't see the girl.

Now thank you for stopping by and please hop around everyone and see all the amazing items made. Now it is onto Kelly Kent.
