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 so love what we do and not only do we love to share it with our customers, friends, and wonderful blog visitors, but we share our love for what we do with each other as demonstrators. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know-how, and cyberstamps, and we are always there to help and support each other when it is needed.
So if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
One of the stamp sets in the catalogue that I absolutely love is called By the Tide, I’ve only just started playing with this stamp set, but I know I’ll be using it a lot more!
In a technique class last year I did a technique called shaving foam, I had a couple of pieces of the gloss card stock left over and was waiting for the right project to use them – well here it is………lots of fussy cutting, some fish are flat and some are raised up on Dimensionals.
The next was made using only the neutral palette and simple masking, sponging and coloured using a blender pen and ink pad. It also incorporated the natural ribbon trim also in the Seasonal catalogue, it has a gorgeous open weave and sets off masculine items well.
