Essentials by Ellen – You Are Enough

Hey there!! We’re celebrating another monthly release with Ellen Hutson, LLC. And I’m just LOVING this one so much! Julie Ebersole designed some beautiful botanicals and Brandi Kincaid also came up with some spectacular large font sentiments that I am in love with.

I think this is a release most of you will REALLY want in your stash. It’s super versatile and can be used in a lot of ways. For my card I used 3 components of the release:

Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Plants Ladies Say by Brandi Kincaid 

Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Rustic Botanicals by Julie Ebersole 

Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Rustic Botanicals by Julie Ebersole

 

This card was pretty easy to create. I knew that I wanted the “You Are Enough” to be embossed in a metallic embossing powder. So that was super simple” and then the panel that I stamped/embossed it on was cut to as small as possible.

Believe it or not, the hardest part for me, was making sure that the panel would be super centered. I measured it with a T-Squared ruler about 3-4 times and marked the corners lightly in pencil so that I would know where my stamping would go (roughly).

To be honest? If I had gone over my pencil lines? It wouldn’t have mattered. But I wanted an even pattern. Nothing haphazard. I had a problem with one of my Distress Oxide Inks not stamping very well, but I used a touch of water from a water brush to try to even the color out. It adds a touch of interest to the one color and the card.

The combination of botanical patterns are sooooo pretty!! And, truly the entire release is just a lot of fun. There’s even a PAPER PACK!!!

Essentials by Ellen Paper Pack, Modern Graphics by Julie Ebersole

That paper pack is going to get a LOT of use in the future. Let me tell ya! :D I hope you enjoyed my card today and if you’re curious as to what I used to make my card all of my supplies are listed below (affiliate links are used and I *do* earn a small commission for any purchases made for why I thank you).

I thank you so much for joining me for this Ellen Hutson, LLC release today, but make sure that you check out the CLASSroom all week long for special posts by guest designers and other fun posts.
