What is ESAD?

ESAD stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up! demonstrators.

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors. 
We also share what we love in our ESAD Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge, ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each other.

So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to leave me a comment and I'll contact you with information on how to join our wonderful group.

Now you may have just joined me from Amity's Blog, or you may be starting your journey with me, either way I hope I can inspire you to add Blooming With Kindness to your stash! if you have it already, maybe I can inspire you to get it back out and ink it up with the new colours in our range!

First up I have a Gift Bag and matching card.

Colours used are NEW In Colours - Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe along with NEW Regals Colour - Island Indigo. I have added a double bow using the 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon. 
I have stamped the blooms using the Masking Technique.

I'm not sure if you can see it very well, but I re-stamped the middle Island Indigo bloom with Versamark Ink and Heat Embossed with the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to give it some shine.

Here I have used the Note Cards & Envelopes for a quick, clean and simple card set, along with making a holder for gift giving in the NEW Regals Colour - Crushed Curry.

I have used the 5 NEW In Colours - Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana on a mat of Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp Set:  Blooming With Kindness
