Aaaaand it’s #TexturalTuesdays!! Yay!! Oh Happy Day! Which also happens to be the sentiment that I used from the very sweet Oh Happy Birds Stamp set that I used for my card today. My card in The CLASSroom with Ellen Hutson is featuring Mama Elephant and Molotow Masking Pens.
I may have tried too hard to make the pens work. Or overthought it. Which I do. It’s not rocket science, but when something is new to you, and you’re really NOT sure what to do with it or how to fit it into your world…overthinking comes soooo easily. ;)
Here is a photo of my Oh Happy Day card:
I love using loose watercoloring for backgrounds. The Molotow Masking Pens are very useful in keeping desired areas completely free of ink and paint. I do believe that I need more practice in using them, however. (Keeping it real.)
It gets frustrating when you just want to complete your project and all you do is mess up, though. *sigh*
If you have one of these pens I’d love to hear your feedback! Now that mine is done, though? It really IS “Oh Happy Day!”
Please check out my complete post on The CLASSroom Blog for all my pics and my full step-by-step
whinefest details on how I made the card with tips and tricks.

Wow! Busy day! I’m also on The CLASSroom Blog today with a #TexturalTuesdays post and a cool Fuse-able Thank You card that I made using the We-R-Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!
My Fuse-Able Thank You card was really fun, but took me forever to make. This tool gets extremely hot. Like a glue gun where you scream and your fingers are instantly welded together. (Ask me how I know.) Or maybe it’s just me that screams like a small child with hot tools? (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)
Anyway, I would suggest watching a plethora of videos before even thinking of starting with the We-R-Memory Keeper Fuse Tool. If my card looks vaguely familiar? It’s because I CASE’d Julie Ebersole’s amazing card from YouTube HERE <— (click). Not gonna lie. Her brilliance blew my mind and I loved the way she used the patterned paper and went from there. That Julie is one creative chica!
Without scorching my fingers off I even made a teensy pocket for a few glittery hearts. A hole was punched and baker’s twine was threaded through to attach the small pocket to the larger one.
I can see a lot of variations of the above card, especially for Christmas. How fun would that be? Even making a small version for a little something special for each card. I LOVE that idea!! I might have to start now as I’m a renowned procraftinator. ;)

Hi friends! Today I’m back up on the CLASSroom blog with another #TexturalTuesdays post, but it’s extra special since we’re Celebrating with Concord & 9th since it’s their first anniversary!!
Check out that savings too! Click the box to be taken directly to the sale. But…only after looking at my card. ;)
The quality of stamps and dies from Concord & 9th is second to none. They are so on trend with their designs, too. I knew almost immediately what I wanted to create when I received my products. My heart pitter pattered!! ♥
I love that so many people are Celebrating with Concord & 9th and that the Ellen Hutson, LLC team is able to play along this week. It’s fun to see what other creative people do with the same products.
Please check out the CLASSroom blog to see how I made today’s card. Thank you, as always, for joining me today!
Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.
Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception.
Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.
The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange).
Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background. And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.
The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.
As usual, all of my supplies are listed below. If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!! ♥
It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday. And I made her a card. :) It’s what I do. The card that I made for her is today’s blog post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson, LLC. I’ve actually been working on the card for a while since I really wanted it to be special. There’s some things you need to know about my mom…
My mom is my chauffeur (since I can’t drive), she is who I talk to every day (either by text or by phone) — she keeps me grounded. My mom makes me laugh. She gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s going on. She hasn’t gone into her “golden years” gracefully. She’s gone kicking and screaming, dancing, and laughing. And I wanted to make my mom a birthday that would make her smile.
I made this card for her to let her know that I celebrate her every day. And that her birthday is just one more day to tell her I love her.
The card for my Mom’s Birthday can be seen today in the CLASSroom along with the full tutorial on how to make it, if you should want to see my process. (With the exception of my coloring process – yaaawwwn!)
All of the supplies that I used to make this card I have listed below along with a few alternatives. If any of the items are currently out of stock with ellenhutson.com, you can request to be put on the waitlist for the item for when it comes back in stock (love that feature!).
I hope that you like today’s card and that it makes you smile as much as it makes ME smile. :)
