Good afternoon and welcome to the ESAD Holiday Fancy Folds and 3D Blog Hop!

ESAD Holiday Fancy Folds Hop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

What a fun and unique way to showcase more of the Holiday Catalogue and to show you some neat folds and projects for you.

Now you may just be wondering what “ESAD” is …

What is ESAD

Fancy Folds with Merry Cafe

For today’s Blog Hop I’ve made you this super fun Corner Pop Card using Coffee Break Designer Series Paper and the gorgeous Merry Cafe Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalogue.

Oh my gosh this card is so much fun to make and it’s really quite easy too!  If I can make it at 3am I’m sure you’ll have no trouble!!   Yeah the things I do when I cant sleep!

Using the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper for my images made it even quicker and easier!

This is how it opens and you see the cute little cups inside with that sweet little sentiment from Merry Cafe!

I wanted to share those sweet cups inside.   They are just the white cups from the Coffee Cafe Designer Series Paper which I’ve cut out with the Coffee Cups framelits and then coloured with the new Stampin’ Blends in Pink Pirouette and Pool Party.  I’ve then embellished my cups with an Enamel heart.

I wanted to show you that not everything in the Holiday Catalogue needs to be used for ‘Holiday’ projects.   I hope you like my card today and I’ll have a tutorial for you soon!

Now let’s hop on to see what the other ESAD  Ladies have created for you today ….ESAD Holiday Fancy Folds Hop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Technique Zone – Ink Smooshing

Good Afternoon – It’s Friday and we’ve made it through another week – go us!!  Today I have a wonderful technique to share with you – Ink Smooshing!

Ink Smooshing Technique

Ink Smooshing Technique by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This is a really fun technique to do although it can be a little messy so you’ll need to make sure you have your table or work area cleared and protected.   Now I dont mean a huge 6′ drop sheet – just a 12×12 worksheet is sufficient.  I used one of the backing boards from our Foil cardstock to work on.

If you search online you’ll see a few different ways to do this technique and I opted to do mine using a ziploc bag with my hand inside to do the ‘smooshing’.  Now I’m not sure when the word ‘smooshing’ became a real word but we’ll go with it as that’s what you do – you smoosh the ink onto the watercolor paper!

Ink Smooshing technique by Leonie Schroder Independent Stamping Up Demonstrator Australia

I used the colours Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo on my piece and this is what it looked like before adding the stamping, die cuts & embellishments.

Want step by step instructions for the Ink Smooshing Technique?  

I do hope you have lots of fun with this tutorial and be sure to share what you make!

Merry Litte Labels

Hello and welcome 🙂  Today I have a sweet project for you using the Merry Little Labels Bundle and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.

Merry Little Labels Tags … 

Merry Little Labels Tag Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These tags really were heaps of fun to create and all you need is the Merry Little Tags Bundle, Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, a couple of ink pads and a couple of markers!

Having the punch in the Bundle make these tags quick and easy and while I was making the tags I thought how easy it would be to turn the tags into cards!

Merry Little Labels Cards 

I converted two of my tags into cards using the gorgeous Note Cards from Stampin’ Up!

Merry Little Labels Tag Notecard by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love this little tag stamp with the trees and the deer.   Now I know Christmas in Australia does not include snow but that stamp is just so pretty!   When choosing the patterned paper for this one I opted for the tree design and it’s like a continuation of the trees in the image.

Merry Little Labels Tag Notecard by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I am loving this one!  I love the wreath behind the tag!  Those wreaths are so much fun as they have wire in them so they are easy to manipulate and shape to whatever you want them to be!

These were so quick and fun I made them in this week’s Project Video …

I do hope you enjoy the video – I know it goes for over 10 minutes but I show you how to create a couple of tags and the cards plus I’ve included a couple of stamping tips for you!

If you like the look of these little tags and cards why not join me on 5th November for my Merry Little Labels class?   We’ll start at 2pm and have some fun created some gorgeous tags and cards for Christmas!  Click the button below to register!

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Designer Series Paper

I love our range of Designer Series Paper! I also love that this month you can get a pack for free when you purchase 3 packs in the Designer Series Paper Sale.

Designer Series Paper Sale - Shop with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia for your free pack of paper in October

Today I have a couple of cards I’ve brewed up using the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper pack and the Coffee Cafe Bundle.

Coffee Break Notecards by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

These cards were included in my Card Making Day Stack.  I love the note cards and envelopes for quick and easy cards – they use less Designer Series Paper too so you can more out of a sheet of paper for backgrounds and elements. Coffee Friend Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one was fun to create and I could create my sentiment “Coffee Friend” by colouring  the words with my Stampin’ Write Marker and stamping it onto my strip of Designer Series Paper.   The little heart comes from the heart strip die from the Mini Treatbag Thinlits.

Latte Thanks Card by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one was quick and fun and a great way to say thanks!   The doilly just adds to the card and gives it a little more depth.  I love the softness from using the Soft Sky cardstock for the cup.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my projects today and it’s now time to head around and see what the other Latte Girls have created for you!

Freshly Brewed 4 for 1 Masked Cards

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Tour.  This week we are making some 4 for 1 Masked Cards!

Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

4 for 1 Masked Cards

I recently came across this technique from a video by Jennifer McGuire and thought how cool and decided to add it to our Freshly Brewed Projects.

4 for 1 Masked Cards using Beautiful Bouquet by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator AustraliaYou really need to give this technique a go as it’s so quick and easy to make several cards at once. I just love how mine turned out!

4 for 1 Masked Cards using Beautiful Bouquet by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

It’s so easy …

  • simply cut your card layer and cut out your shape.
  • Apply these two pieces to two card bases with repositionable tape/glue
  • stamp around the cut edge of your shapes
  • lift your pieces apart and assemble to make four cards

See so easy!  If you are a visual learner please take a look at  Jennifer’s video here and you’ll see how very clever she is and just how easy these  cards to do!

All the images and sentiments I’ve used today have come from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Stet.

Now it’s time to check out what the other Latte Girls have created for you today …

Petite Pocket Treats

Good Afternoon!   I have a sweet little project for you today being my Petite Pocket Treats Holder.

Petite Pocket Treats by Leonie Schroder Indpendent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I had so much fun designing these little treat holders.  They were inspired by the Mini   Pocket die we had a few years back.

They are super quick and easy to make and just take one piece of 6×6 paper – so you can get 4 from one 12×12 sheet or 48 from a whole packet of Designer Series Paper!

Petite Pocket Treats Holder

Here’s a quick video to show you how …

I’ve also got the free tutorial for you to download – click here to download now!

Merry Mistletoe

Merry Mistletoe Stamp Set

I wont deny I had a lot of fun creating cards for my World Card Making Day Card Buffet on Saturday and I’ve got two of them to share with you today!

Christmas Garland using Merry Mistletoe by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

I love the simplicity of this card and how easy it was to create.  It makes a great Christmas Card that’s easy to make a few of at one time.   A simply huff on the stamp after stamping it on the card decorates the envelope perfectly!

Joyful Deer using Merry Mistletoe by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This one came together really easily and is one of my favourites!   I love that Deer and it did have me dreaming of Alaska 😉

Oh Happy Day

Welcome back!  It’s Friday and my last day visiting with my friend Libby.  We’ve had a wonderful couple of days but it’s time to head back to the tribe and sort them out!  Today I have my pretty Oh Happy Day card for you …

Happiest of Days - Oh Happy Day by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

Happiest of Days

This is the last card from my Happiest of Days Latte Card Club – you can download the tutorials for this class from my Latte Tutorial Shoppe.

I really enjoyed making this card as I wanted to share how you can use your stamps to make your own patterned paper or backgrounds.   The three present stamp is stamped staggered on the card in Powder Pink and I’ve used my blender pen to just drag the ink for some soft colouring.

Happiest of Days - Oh Happy Day by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

The navy was the perfect colour to go with the Powder Pink and really makes the card pop.  If I’d used another subtle colour the card would have looked washed out.

I love that using this sentiment with the presents & cake stamp is suitable for any celebration – birthdays, wedding, engagement or any occasion that involves cake & presents really!

I do hope you like today’s card and have a go at making your own patterned paper with your stamps.
