I am so excited to showcase the drop-dead GOR-JUS Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Season to Sparkle by Julie Ebersole and the coordinating die set Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Season to Sparkle by Julie Ebersole. This set is so amazing. I think my jaw dropped when I saw it for the first time. So, so pretty! The sentiments included in the stamp set are just perfect, too.
I was going for a bit of a Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis feel with my watercoloring. What do you think? And rather than use silver embossing powder I used pewter. I love that it’s a tad less “harsh” in tone. Y’know? The pewter EP looks phenomenal against the jewel tones from the cardstock and my Aurora, too. So happy with this card. :)Here are what the stamp and die sets look like.
For my second card I used the stand alone Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Geo Tree by Julie Ebersole. This card is so much prettier than what you can see. Which bums me out. The tree behind the geometric tree is water-colored with Distress Crayons in bright Greens and Blues. And a few sequin “ornaments” have been hung. I love the effect. The shiny bits are FOIL!!
I wanted to keep this card simple, so NOT normal for me…I know! To do this the geometric tree shape was die-cut out of Essentials by Ellen, Woodgrain Embossed Cardstock. Everything was layered from the back panel up. And to add a bit of dimension? 3D Foam Adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, of course. The final touch was a few more sequins and another stand alone die: Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Believe by Julie Ebersole.
There are so many amazing products in this release you will want them ALL!! And I don’t blame you. Everything is gorgeous. I’ll link you to the entire release below.
