ESAD Autumn/Winter Mini Blog Hop

What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for “Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators” 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 feel free to click here to join our wonderful group


If the Hop is going nicely you would have just come from Yvonne Walkers’s Blog and now you get to check out my creations 🙂

Friday night a friend and myself hosted our very first social night of stamping and scrapping.  I managed to get a few cards made but can you believe I only got the 2 done in 4 1/2 hours!!  Too much talking and eating cheesecake I think!

Anyway, enough YAK, here are my creations to inspire you.

Using the ultra ‘oooo’ stamp set Bordering Romance, Twitterpated Designer Paper and some of the new Pleated Satin Ribbon.  The sentiments are from Word Play.

And I’ve managed to whip up another card on Saturday 🙂  This one has a little scoring in the Pear Pizzazz panel to add some interest. Using the new Simply Scored of course!

Such a yummy set!

Bordering Romance is also the set that we’ll be using for this round of Stamp by Mail, and YES that does mean watercolouring.  Don’t let that scare you, I’ll be providing a video to help you out.

Enough waff from me, let’s now check out what Nicole Stalker has created for us.

  1. Gorgeous as always Alisa! I am ordering the framelits on my next order. Your water coloring is as beautiful as always, and suits these stamps to perfection.

  2. I love the watercolouring on this stamp set. I had not thought about ordering this set but after seeing some of its uses in the blog hop, I may have to change my mind

  3. Ok, I have now been completely sold on this stamp set!! These are gorgeous! Love how spectacular they look all cut out so pretty-like! And in blue too – swoon!

  4. Absolutely inspiring, as usual Alisa. The layouts on these cards are so beautiful and very unique too. I love the scoring detail on the middle card, made easy I bet by the Simply Scored. TFS such gorgeous projects.

  5. Alisa love all your creations. I so want the framelits dies, and you are certainly making a case for me in wanting the bordering on romance stamp set now with your beautiful water colouring….whats a girl to do? but add them the the never ending wish list LOL Cheers Donna Zammit:)

  6. Love your creations Alisa, the scoring on the panel of the last card looks great. I love the middle card too, the use of non-traditional flower colours makes it stand out.

  7. Love your cards Alisa, I haven’t got this set,and not really sure that I want too but you can do so much with it.

  8. Wow Alisa, as usual, your cards are beautiful!!!! I have now absolutely fallen in love with Bordering on Romance!!! lol I think I may be casing a couple (ok all of them) if that’s ok? Love them!!! Gorgeous!!!
