United We Flourish Better Together Blog Hop

Happy Sunday and welcome to my stop on this super special blog hop. This is a wonderful collaboration between Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson LLC and we’re thrilled to bring this limited United We Flourish release to you today. I hope that you arrived here  from the blog of my friend (and the enormously talented) Libby Hickson.

My card is a tiny bit out of my comfort zone. But as I was creating it, I just went with the flow instead of over-thinking it (as I am VERY prone to do). I’m trying very hard this year to just “let go” with my creativity. And see wherever it takes me. I think you’ll see it in the card, too.

It’s cute, isn’t it? I still did some water color and some ink blending with the background, but I didn’t go overboard.  It’s even (dare I say it?) simple? Or at least it is to me! ;) I also don’t make many cute cards, But, these little love birds were fun.

If you’re a bird-lover? Then this set is for you! It’s full of our fine-feathered friends! And all kind of fun sentiments, too. And, if you’re a collector of the United We Flourish sets, then I know you’ll have fun coloring this one for sure.

Here is a better look at the set and coordinating dies:

Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia 2017

Hi! I’m super happy to be participating in my dear friend Taheerah’s Advent Calendar Extravaganza for the second year in a row by contributing a card that I made using some of my favorite Essentials by Ellen products! 

Here’s a little bit more about this event from Taheerah herself:

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is the festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests – each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration!

Now let’s get creative, shall we? I am using a die set designed by the amazing Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson, LLC today. I’ve been extremely fortunate to be a member of this wonderful team of creative women for a number of years now and Ellen, herself, is just the most gentle, kind, compassionate, and amazing human being EVER!!! The die set I’m using for my project is Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Holiday Words, by Julie Ebersole.

 

And here’s a close-up of all the sparkle and shine! And check out that cute little snowflake!

If you don’t cut this die apart it’s fantastic to use together OR if you do decide to cut the words apart? The separate words are amazing on their own. Just imagine using the big, bold “Love” die-cut for a stunning Valentine card. *swoon*!!

Happy 2017

Happy 2017!! Wait what? Okay so, it’s not quite 2017 YET! But I did make a very cool Happy 2017 card that’s on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. You really should check it out. 

Let me show you a very quick peek at the card. And then you have to head over to their blog to get all of the nitty-gritty details on how I made it. Sound good?

The stamp set and die are both from Essentials by Ellen and are called Advent (designed by Julie Ebersole). All of those  luscious sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

For close ups of this card, please head over to the Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L® blog. Using the Keepsake Envelopes make any card special and can be used in so many amazing ways.

I wish you all a very happy and healthy 2017.

Holiday Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone! Running late today due to computer glitches, but I have a Holiday Mixed Media Project up over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson and my #TexturalTuesdays series today. I hope you’ll find some time to check it out.

lisaadametz-rangerproductfocus-blog

This project today is featuring a ton of Ranger products so, naturally, it also includes products by Tim Holtz. I used Tim’s new collage mediums, as well. Please check out the post to see what I liked and what I thought was so-so. I use so many different type of collage mediums I was really was looking forward to trying these out! Have any of you used them? What do you think? I’d love to know.

This type of panel is a 4″ x 6″ flat back canvas that come pre-primed so they are perfect for makeing small wall hangings and gifts. I love to work on these since they ARE flat and no priming is necessary. Hole punching is also a breeze if you have a heavy duty hole puncher (which I do).

They hold up to heat and most standard “abuse” fairly well. ;) Make sure to check out the Holiday Mixed Media Project post to see the full tutorial and additional photos for all information on how this is created. They are easily adjusted to your own style and creative needs.

I hope that you all have an amazing week and an amazing Thanksgiving!

Listed below are all of the supplies that I utilized with my affiliate link through Ellen Hutson, if you are interested. Thank you for your support! ♥
