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
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

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. ;)

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.
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! :)
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. :)
