Favourites from the 2017/18 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue

EASD Blog Hop Favourites 17 18

Welcome to today’s blog. I am pleased to be part of The EASD blog hop to highlight our favourite items from the 2017-18 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue. What a privilege to be featured among such talented crew.  I know I am always telling you how excited I am and saying ‘this is my favourite’ and I think that is because I find such joy in creating with Stampin’ Up! Products that I just become a little excitable and each new product I play with becomes my new favourite! I have decided that neither of these states of elation are a bad thing!. So welcome to my latest creation from the studio. First things first.. Whate is ESAD

I am playing today with Product set A Little Wild {144344} and the coordinating Little Loves Framelits Dies {143743}. The set as shown lends itself immediately to baby cards but I love the idea of creating cards that are for the Wild at Heart.

My first idea on seeing this set was to create a Noah’s Ark style card. This is my first attempt at a double cascading card (also known as a double-z card). The wood texture was created using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack {144177} and the edges distressed using a Sponge Dauber {133773} and Crumb Cake ink {126975}.

The super fun part of this set is the back of the animals is stamped to match perfectly. So cute!  I have to say I did find photographing this project to show the best angles just a little bit tricky!

Once I started playing, I couldn’t stop. So I made some fun 3″x3″ note cards that also feature images inside the card to coordinate with the front images. Have you used the metallic thread {silver 138402} on your cards? They add an element of bling and dimension to your projects.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS, These lil darlings just make my heart skip a beat….So wished I had lil people to create cards for them with these. From the first moment I saw them in the catalogue I knew that I had to buy them BUT other things keep popping in my shopping basket….these will be in my next BBB.
    Love them, if you hadn’t gathered Cheers Shaz
