Pony Party and Tote-ally Tess

Morning all, hope you are all ready for the ESAD Blog Hop! Better grab a cuppa as we will be hopping around for a while. I guess you are wondering what ESAD is? It stands for Extra Special Australian Demonstrators and it is an online group just for Aussie and NZ demonstrators for Stampin' Up!
We love what we do and not only do we like to share it with our customers, friends and wonderful Blog visitors, but we share what we love with fellow demos. We run swaps, challenges, tutorials, product know how and cyberstamps and we are always there to help and support each other when needed.
So if you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
I hope you enjoyed looking at Ann's Blog..and now here is my contribution.
I loved every single thing in the Autumn-winter mini catalogue (and bought most of them) but two items I purchased for my own personal pleasure were Pony Party and Tote-ally Tess...
I have three grand daughters and they are mad about My Little Pony, so it was my DUTY  to buy this set. I used Melon Mambo card stock with the matching polka dot ribbon. The pony is water coloured, with Dazzling Diamonds added to the tail and mane... I love all the little extras that come with this set...this pony has had wings added

Same pony but no wings this time!! For the background I stamped the tiny flower from Season of Joy and the flower posey is made with the single flower from Eastern Blooms. Pony Party (119179) is going to be a big hit around here for birthday invitations! (I am not selfish two of the grandies have already played with this set and made themselves some colouring pages)
The other set I bought for my own pleasure was Tote-ally Tess....I wanted it to make personalised stationery....But there is so much more to Tess....sure she loves to stamp and scrapbook but she is a party girl at heart.

Here she is on her way to a birthday party! For this one I paper pieced Tess using various designer papers. The added accessories are the balloon from Crazy For Cupcakes and the tiny cake in her hand is from the Short and Sweet set. The sentiment is from Heard From the Heart (119167) I stamped it in Whisper White craft ink but will remember to emboss it next time so it stands out. (I love all the sentiments in this set and it will be well used for sure).

  2. Pony Party is a definite favorite in this house with two young daughters mad about My Little Pony too. I have been selfish and have not let them play with it yet - but I will be this weekend. They are gorgeous. Love Tess too.

  4. You have been so clever with Tess. I have often seen that balloon incorporated into cards but never the cupcake from short and sweet. Totally Genius :)

  10. That Pony Party set is sure to please anyone who is into My Little Ponies and I wasn't going to buy the Tote-ally Tess set but seeing your card has given me second thoughts! So glad I am a demonstrator and can get such a good discount as my wishlist keeps growing!

  11. WOW, I kept thinking as I have hopped from one blog to the next that each time the party pony featured it looked familiar... and you have solved my memory block....My Little Pony!!! My DD9 has them stashed all over the house. Love, love, love it. Thanks for inspiring. You have been officially favourited into my computer. Enjoy your Easter. Cheers Donna Zammit
