What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Australian and New Zealand demonstrators for Stampin’ Up!
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 its needed.
So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

I hope that you enjoy what I have done with the new Tulips Embossing Folder and the stamp set “Thanks for Caring” from the latest Mini Catalogue.

The first card in this set of sympathy cards is a CASE from the latest mini catalogue. In the next three cards I have embossed Vellum Cardstock using the Tulips Embossing Folder and the Bigshot Machine. The flower and butterfly are stamped using black Stazon ink and coloured in with Stampin’ Up! markers.

So now you can hop off and see what Clare Mcilhatton has been creating. It doesn't matter where you joined the hop click on the link above to Clare’s blog and then carry on through the blog hop until you get back to where you started.

I just love that embossing folder. I found it hard to see what you have done with it becuase I don't have Windows Live to view them up close.

The embossed vellum finishes your cards perfectly! I have some vellum that's been laughing at me so I will have to try this for sure! :)
