Hey there! It’s Ink Week over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson and I’m so lucky to be able to feature Distress Inks on this #TexturalTuesday.
I had so much fun making this card. Lots of ink blending and the addition of Texture Paste. Very textural.
Let me show you the card and then tell you a little bit more about Ink Week.
Using the gold to bring out the colors underneath was something I’m hoping I pulled off. To me, being able to see the full image isn’t important, but to make the card/colors/imagery make you feel something. I hope that makes sense. This is one of the reasons I love mixed media so much. It’s not what you necessarily see, but what you feel that’s important.
For how I made the card, all of the details are on the CLASSroom blog. There are lots of photos and information for you, if you’d like to replicate the card.
Ellen is also doing a full-on Ink Week! All of the designers are featuring a different ink and how we use them in our posts. Not only that, she is running a wonderful promotion.

This Ink Week is going to feature a lot of different ways to use your inks and many different styles so stay tuned for the whole week.

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
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.
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! ♥
Hi everyone! I made a funny card!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!! ;) It’s actually for my post today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. And it also happens to be for my dad’s birthday. Shhhhhh….don’t tell him it’s here. It’ll be our little secret until the 22nd, okay?
The card was so much fun to make. I love utilizing a lot of color in my card-making. The background is created by blending Distress Inks over a piece of water-color cardstock. I like the texture this type of paper gives the background. Smoother paper would not make it look this way, but I’m a texture freak. This is no surprise.
The use of many sizes and thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are what really bring this funny card to life. Okay, maybe the super cute sentiment, too. ;)
I hope that you’ll check out the blog post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to learn a bit more on how I made this funny card for my daddy-o.
The stamp set that I used is called Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole and the matching die set is Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole they’re so FUN!!
I’ll see you back here on Tuesday for something super exciting!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for spending part of it with me. ♥
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. :)
