ESAD 2015 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop


The 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is here and has been live worldwide for nearly two weeks now! I just love this amazing catalogue and I hope you love it as much as I do!
To mark is wonderful occasion of a new catalogue my lovely friends and I from the Facebook group ESAD  have decided to a Blog Hop to showcase the fabulous products from this awesome catalogue. 
You may have joined me from Andrea Buckland  or started here with me. Either way you are in for a treat to see the creativity and imagination of myself and 23 other fellow Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators. So grab your beverage of choice, get comfortable and get ready for the hop!
Today I've made 3 cards using the Home for Christmas DSP. This is an amazing pack of  DSP with its hand-drawn images that evoke nostalgic feelings of Christmas past.

 

There are 12,  12"x 12", sheets in the pack: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
Isn't it stunning! I love it!


My first card is a simple card that can easily be mass produced if you are needing to make a lot of Christmas cards for your family and friends.



It has been accented with the amazing Snowflake Elements, Winter Wonderland Embellishments and Gold Glitter Ribbon.


My next card is a bit of a sparkly one. And looks so pretty!

I covered the Bauble DSP piece with Versa Mark, sprinkled over Heat 'n' Stick powder and heated it up till it became sticky and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Boy does that stuff go everywhere!


Its actually quite hard to see here but the glitter looks amazing and it really gives that something special to the card.


Because the glitter layer gives the card a lot of detail I wanted to keep the stamping and embellishments quite simple.


For my last card I've fussy cut the Christmas Tree and presents out and layered them on the card. Although this idea is not originally mine, why wouldn't you cut the tree out and use the image on your creations. The imagery on this DSP is amazing and is great to cut out!


The 'MERRY' comes from the Little Letters Thinlits. and the Christmas is from the stamp set Oh, What Fun. 

 How gorgeous does that tree look? There are other images on some of the other sheets that are perfect to cut out and stick on to your creations.

I made a card a few weeks ago using the Santa DSP sheet. Check it out here

I really hope I've inspired you today and given you some ideas for you to use with your Home for Christmas DSP pack.

 I hope that you have enjoyed what I've shown you on this hop.The next stop on the hop is the talented Kathryn Ruddick. Click on the Next Blog button below to click on to Kathryn.
