ESAD 2018 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-bration blog hop

Hello and welcome to the first ESAD blog hop for this year ! I have been enjoying playing with some of the new items in both the Occasions and Sale -a - Bration catalogues .
I decided to share 3 cards using Bird Banter .
First an easy one layer card very simply created and perfect for beginners . The leaves are so easy to position and the card comes together really quickly and easily . The cockatoos are quick to colour with the new blends . I have to admit to chucking every time I read the two sentiments - not an early bird ! Fantastic for a belated birthday card ! I love all the sentiment in this set and will use each and every one of them .

For this card I stamped leaves onto my Lemon Lime Twist  base before embossing it with the Woodlands embossing folder . I stamped and coloured my birds and then cut slits in the mat so they'd look like they were sitting right in the trees . There's that same sentiment again and then check it  when you turn to the inside ! Love it !

Lastly I thought I'd try a brusho background for these birds ! I wet my water colour card stock then shook a few crystals and watched he magic ! You really need to get yourself some of this stuff ! Its amazing ! This time I die cut my leaves using the dies from Petals and More thinlits . This was th first time I used this die and oh man I am in love ! These leaves are gorgeous and cut like butter ! This time i used the simple Happy Birthday sentiment and punch it using the Classic Label punch ! Perfect ! I love the sentiment I've used on the insert too !
