Make Your Own Stencil

Hey there! It’s #TexturalTuesdays over in The CLASSroom and I have a new post showing how to Make Your Own Stencil.  In my post I simply use Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies and acetate. So super easy.

I made the card below using the stencil I created from acetate, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Holiday Words by Julie Ebersole ,with a little texture paste, and some glitter for shimmer.

Please be sure to check out the post in The CLASSroom for the full details on how to Make Your Own Stencil (and please don’t be mad when you see how easy it is. HAHHA!!) The great thing about using your favorite dies is that the possibilities are endless.

To give the card added texture, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stitches Cover Plate by Julie Ebersole was used on a piece of Bazzill Card Shoppe Wax Lips Cardstock and the edges were then distressed. I love doing this.

The key in making anything? Is to make what you love. Same goes with stencils, I suppose. And I had a great time making this card. I hope it shows.

Thank you SO much for joining me today and for checking out my how-to in The CLASSroom.  I do appreciate every one of you. xo

 I am so crazy excited to showcase the Mondo Peony Stamp by Julie Ebersole and Mondo Peony Die by Julie Ebersole for you today. The Mondo stamps have been so very popular and this one is sure to please, too.  The big, beautiful size of the stamps and dies will be a hit for mixed media AND stampers alike. I, personally, am in HEAVEN!! ♥

Mondo Peony

The largest flower is a MASSIVE 3½” x approximately 3¼”!! It truly is MONDO. (Julie wasn’t joking around.)

Here is a quick look at the Mondo Peony stamp set:

 I initially had so many ideas for this card it was hard to reign it in. I know that the pineapple trend is HUGE right now, but did YOU know that pineapples are a sign of hospitality and friendship? LINK I think that’s so cool!

 The card that I made is so colorful and fun! I used Distress Crayons, the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors for the beautiful shimmery golds (on both cards, actually), and a mix of Distress Inks, and Lawn Fawn Inks. :) The Pineapple crown was created with a light green foil. Fun, huh?

Here is a look at the Stay Golden Stamp set:

Floral Hello Card

Happy Thursday! I’m on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog with this Floral hello card today. I’m using a bunch of pretty floral patterned papers, oodles of dies, and luscious adhesives. 

The blues and yellows just play off each other on this floral hello card so beautifully, don’t you think? The rustic-looking flowers are created very simply using the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Girlie Grunge Pennant set and your favorite rolled flower dies.

LisaAdametz-FloralHello-08112016-Blog

The “Hello” is from a new stamp company called Right At Home Stamps and this set is called Script Greetings. I just adore the font so much.  Embossing the sentiment in gold really makes it pop, yet ties it together with the yellow.

There is a full tutorial (with step-by-step instructions) for this pretty floral hello card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.  If you’d like to make a card like this for yourself, going to the blog is a great place to start! By using a different selection of patterned paper and a new mix of floral dies it would give this floral card a completely fresh and new look. Mixing florals and patterns is a sure fire way to make a card “pop” .  

Have a wonderful Thursday…it’s almost FRIDAY! :)

Mom’s Birthday

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.

LisaAdametz-MomBday-07192016-3

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. :)

Mother’s Day

Hey!! Happy Tuesday :) I have a brand new card up on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson today and I figured with Mother’s Day this weekend I’d make a Mother’s Day card for my mama….y’know since she rocks and gave me life and all. I can’t imagine that having ME as a kid was easy, but I am forever grateful for putting up with my crap. She’s a rock star in my world.

I made her Mother’s Day card using tons of dimension and felt flowers since I know she loves them so much. I tried to make it a card from MY heart just for her. That’s what a Mother’s Day card should be, right?

Anyway, here’s a peek at the card.

Mother's Day 2016

There are so many tiny little details to this card. I really hope that you’ll check out the post and tutorial that I created to go along with it over at the CLASSroom today. There are plenty of photos to go along with it and I’ll have all the supplies listed below.

What do you have planned for Mother’s Day? I’m not a mom, so we’re (my sister and I) are taking my mother out to a place that she has selected for lunch on Sunday. My mom is at an age where she doesn’t really like to go out late (past 5:00pm….hahha!!), so lunch it is. Plus, my mom and I will be doing the Susan Komen Walk for the Cure the day before and I think she could be a wee bit tired. ;) Should be a fun weekend.

I hope that you all have a blessed Mother’s Day, whether you are a mother or not. Know that you ARE loved, cherished, and treasured. ♥

Lisa Sig
