ESAD 2019-2020 Annual Catalgoue Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD 2019-20 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Sneak Peek. If you are just starting here, you've got 25 amazing blogs all showcasing some of the new products from the NEW catalogue that is launched on Tuesday 4th June. If you are following the hop, you will have come from Rebecca's blog.

I thought I'd make a little card and gift box set.



I have created my own dsp from the button stamps from the It Stamps with Art stamp set, which I then coloured with my watercolour pencils.




I made a thicker button embellishment by adhering 5 layers of card buttons, the button are from the Arts & Crafts Dies. Once the layers were glued together and dry, I sanded the edges with an emery board.




The box design was cased from The Paper Pixie, I followed Julie's facebook live video with the directions whilst she was creating her own version. (I confess, I did use scrap dsp and card to start with and then made this version in my own time)



The suede/fabric look for the Bermuda Bay stripe on the card and box were made by separating the top and bottom layer of smooth card by breaking down the fibres in the cardstock by rubbing it over my bone folder several times.

  8. What an adorable set, Richelle (I do love a matching set). I love the bright and fun colours you've chosen. That box is so cute, I'll have to try making one myself. And I've not tried that technique to create a suede look with card before, how interesting! Thank you for sharing that.

  13. Oh what great projects! Love your tip about layering the die cuts to make a thicker button. And like you I sometime try things out on scrap paper first to make sure I've got it right!
