#TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs

Hi there crafty friends and welcome to #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs! :) Otherwise known as the first #TexturalTuesdays of 2017.

It’s going to be a fun one today as I share a card made using Avery Elle products made by Heather Campbell who is also a designer for Ellen Hutson. She is so amazing.

This card I made for #TexturalTuesdays is using tons of color mediums: Copic markers, Zig Clean Color Markers, and Distress Inks!! All on one card.  And I *think* I pulled it off.  ;)  As I sold most of my Copics? This was way out of my comfort zone, but I still did it.  Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns. I knew in order to give the hedgie the perfect quills, the Copic markers would be the best way to go.

For all of the behind the scenes action on the card, I urge you to check out the CLASSroom blog for my #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs card. You’ll read more about how this card was created and see more photos, as well.

All of the supplies for this card are listed below. As I am an affiliate for Ellen Hutson, I do receive a small, teeny tiny, itty-bitty commision for anything you  purchase through me. And I thank you in advance. It keeps my blog semi working (ha!) and bug free. ♥

Wishing you all a wonderful day! xo

25 Days of Christmas Tags

25-days-of-christmas-tagsWelcome to day SEVEN of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags!! Team Ellen Hutson is featured on her blog with our tags today. YAY!!

Tracey has some basic guidelines set up to win some fabulous prizes from the many sponsors, so make sure you read them and PLAY along!!

Now, here is the tag that I created for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags:

lisaadametz_25tagsofchristmas2016_ellenhutson

My tag uses some of the brand new dies from Ellen Hutson LLC. The Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Believe by Julie Ebersole has been insanely popular! And who can possibly resist the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Antlers by Julie Ebersole?

The antlers were die cut twice. First with Ellen Hutson Curious Metallic , Gold Leaf Cardstock then again and layered on top with the Tim Holtz Deco Sheets, Holiday 2016.  Using pretty paper, glittery accents, and (of course) a pom-pom red “nose” makes this tag a shabby shic success!

I hope you’ll play along and link up with your own tag creation for today’s inspiration by the Ellen Hutson Team. All of the creations are just amazing. I am so very fortunate to design with such a fabulously talented group of women.

Here are all of the supplies that I used, with affiliate links, if you’d care to shop with me. :)

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.

Make Your Own Stencil by papergrace

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

Fall Thank You

Hey there! It’s another busy day today. I have a Fall Thank You card that I made for the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. This card features many of the exclusive products that we carry in our line by Donna Salazar.  Donna has a love for mixed media and what she loves to call “Girlie Grunge”. I happen to love it, too.

Here is my card:

I love the rustic, autumn feel of this card. Even though it’s still so very hot here in Nevada. I love that I can look at this card and be reminded that It WILL get cooler — eventually.

The products by Donna Salazar that I’m using for this Fall Thank You card are as followed: Pigment Powder in Brown, Gold, and Wine; Girlie Grunge Twine, Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Ash, and Donna’s Lace Ribbons.  I’m also using the 3D Foam Leaves.  (All Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L® products can be found HERE.)

The beautiful plaid patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn and is part of her Perfectly Plaid Fall Petite Paper Pack.

I hope that you’ll check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to read how I made my Fall Thank You card. It’s super easy to replicate. :)

Hope that you all have a wonderful day today!

Fuse-Able Thank You

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!

Fuse-able Thank You

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. ;)
