ESAD Designer Series Paper buy 3, get 1 free promotion blog hop

Hello and welcome to another wonderful ESAD hop.
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver- KOCreations Cards. You have arrived from Sharon Daltons post.
 If you have just started the hop here, don't stress 😉 I have a button further down for you to continue moving through to the next lovely designer in the hop Siobhan Fitzsimmons

We are focusing our creative energies today on the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Promotion happening with Stampin' Up!® during July.

I purchased my faves from the list above.
Natures Poem, Animal Expedition and Tropical Escape. My FREE choice was the Under The Mistletoe DSP.

I thought about sharing a project from each DSP that I purchased in preparation  for this hop and started creating. 
But, I found myself ending up going back again and again to the Tropical Escape DSP. 
So that is what I concentrated on - Tropical Escape.
 I will share my other projects and link them back to this post over the coming week.

Here are a couple of projects using just 1 sheet of the gorgeous Tropical Escape DSP

I had been looking at the Painted Harvest set and thought that it would look great with the Tropical Escape DSP. I have to say I adored how it looked. For my second card I mixed in the Botanical Tags and the Stitched Labels dies.

 I fell in love with these colours and the papers and decided to grab the matching Stamp and die set that co-ordinates with the Tropical Escape DSP - the Tropical Chic bundle, and had even more fun 😍

I created a framed scrap page of my trip to Fiji for my best friends wedding in 2014, along with some gorgeous tropical themed cards.

In these photo's above my friends had just been declared Husband and Wife on one of the gorgeous beaches on Mana Island where these were taken. It was an absolutely gorgeous spot to get married and I was so very honoured to have been asked to be in attendance and witness this important day.

I was using some of the BRIGHTS colours for my card above, Gorgeous Grape, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green. I made a couple of cards using these colours. One of which is going to be part of a retreat that has been organised for August in Tasmania for Tassie demo's. (Are you a Tassie Demo? Feel free to contact me for more info)

For the card above I have added a gold Library clip with matching Powder Pink ruffled ribbon just for a touch of bling. The flowers have been finished with Artisan Pearls.

I found something out whilst I was playing with these stunning papers! Some of the leaf dies match the DSP leaves! 😮😍 How amazing is that! I used the leaf dies  and placed the die cut leaves from the DSP on the card below plus my scrap page above!

For this card above I have used the window sheet to create a see through section so that the sentiment can be seen from the front and is inside the card when opened to read the more personal message..

Thank you for stopping by my post for this wonderful hop.
