ESAD 25 April 2021 Farewell Annual Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello lovelies,

welcome to a fun hop with the ESAD (Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators) I am thrilled to join this lovely group of Demonstrators to share with you some fabulous creations made with products that will be retiring in the Stampin'Up! Annual Catalogue May 3rd, 2021.

I am Sharni Haines from South Australia and I would like to thank the lovely Nicole Wilson for hosting and inviting me to join this Hop! You may have started here, or come from Cathy Pinchbeck from Canberra.

I was up super early this morning, and there were Anzac Day Memorials going on all around the country - I am sure I heard a trumpet way up our always brings a tear to my eye thinking about the sacrifices and hardship that so many suffered for our country. While I was watching some of the memorials on TV, I realized I should have made a card with a poppy or something more appropriate for the day.

I did however, design a card using a few of my favourite products that are sadly retiring from the catalogue...but maybe not from my shelves!!

I built the card up with a few layers - starting with a Basic White card base, then a smaller piece of Basic White that I embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I stamped this using Grey Granite Ink and images from the Beauty Abounds Stamp.

The next layer was one of the wreaths I cut out with Basic White from the Wreath Builder Dies - I cut this in half. The leaves went on next, mixed with a bit of White Bakers Twine that I thinned out by separating the threads.

The leaves are from Natures Roots Dies. I water coloured them onto FLUID 100 WATERCOLOR PAPER with Pear Pizzazz and Granny Apple Green Reinkers.

The flowers were coloured the same way as the leaves (Melon Mambo & Flirty Flamingo) and cut out with flower dies from the Wreath Builder Dies. I placed a bit of bling onto each flower - ELEGANT FACETED GEMS which are continuing in the new catalogue.

The sentiment is from Beauty Abounds.

I finished off the card with a few ink splatters from the new Dark Evening Evergreen Stampin' Blend.

Well that's all from me, thanks so much for popping in, have a wonderful day!
