ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop

Image may contain: text

Welcome back 😊
Today I am blog hopping along with ESAD.
We are all choosing something from the new catalogue to showcase. We hope to inspire your own creativity with our projects shared with you today.

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver. I have a full list of participants closer to the end of this post.

I have chose to use the Painted Harvest Bundle which can be found on page 48 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue. It is already proving to be quite a popular and versatile bundle!

When you buy bundles you automatically save 10% on the total cost of the two items.
I love bundles AND saving 😉 Don't You!

Have you got your copy yet??

Here is my card using products from this catalogue.

Basic Directions

  • The base for this card is Crushed Curry with a layer of Thick Whisper White for the front.
  • The sunflower has been stamped using Elegant Eggplant and Crushed Curry. 
  • This has then been fussy cut and set aside to add later.
  • I punched out the leaves using the matching leaf punch also set aside to add later.
  • The background has been stamped using the lattice from Graceful Garden stamp set in Basic Grey.
  • Stamp the flower shadow stamp in elegant eggplant over the top of the lattice stamped image.
  • Place your fussy cut sunflower and leaves with dimensionals and glue.
  • I have added black Rhinestones to finish found on page 53 of the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
