Hi and Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop!


Today we are sharing projects using our favourites from the Holiday Catalogue and hope you enjoy clicking through and seeing what everyone’s made.

What on earth is ESAD?


Now I know it says our ‘favourite Holiday Catalogue products’ however I’ve still so much I haven’t used yet so wanted to share with you one of those today.

Forever Evergreen - on sale till 28th November
Forever Evergreen – on sale till 28th November

Now this set was designed to coordinate with the Forever Evergreen Project Kit but I wanted to show you how versatile the set is on its own!  Now these two items are on sale in the Online Extravaganza but you’ll need to be quick as that sale finishes tomorrow!

I’ve made three projects for you today and first up a fun Bauble Card …

trimmings2I love baubles and have a tradition of buying a new one or set each year and I love how these turned out.   They’ve been stamped onto Shimmery White Cardstock and stamped with the Black Archival ink and then water coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.

The ‘light’ in the background was done with the big texture stamp from Touches of Texture which I inked up in Daffodil Delight then spritzed the stamp lightly with water, stamped it on my card then used an Aqua Painter to spread the ink.

Next up we have some Christmas Tags …

kraftchristmastagsI love making tags for Christmas using our Crumb Cake card stock!  All 5 of these tags came from half a sheet of A4 so you can get 10 out of one full sheet! Look at me being all frugal like! It’s so much nicer to receive a gift with a handmade tag than one of those mass produced stickers don’t you think?

All these were made using the Forever Evergreen Stamp Set although I did use the To & From stamps from the Tin of Tags Stamp Set.

Next we have another bauble card …


I love how this one turned out – it’s what I call a ‘swish’ card.  It’s when I use images to swish across the front of the card.  I did another recently with the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set.

All the baubles are stamped direct onto the card in one ink colour except for the Tangerine Bauble which was coloured with markers then stamped.  The three in the middle I water coloured with my Aqua Painter and the two outside baubles were stamped and the ‘white’ area coloured with the clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  The splatter stamp is from Timeless Texture Stamp Set.

I do hope you liked my projects today and I’m glad I finally got to use this set!

  1. Thanks Leonie – These are just gorgeous! I think we so often miss how versatile the Kit stamp sets are – there is so much more to them than to use only with the kit.

  2. Leonie I love your cards and am like the others now I need this set just to make my own. They are great!

  3. Gorgeous cards Leonie. You did a great job highlighting that stamp set. I overlooked it totally because I wasn’t interested in the trees. What a mistake that was. Thank you for sharing.
