Essentials by Ellen and HoneyBee Hop

Hi! Welcome to my stop on this super special blog hop today. You should have arrived here from the uber-talented Julia Stainton’s blog.

This blog hop is special in that this is the third stamp set with the United We Flourish theme. This set being the collaboration between HoneyBee Stamps and Ellen Hutson LLC

In Ellen’s words, I’d like to share a little bit more about the United We Flourish Program and then I’ll share my card.

Last November we began celebrating our 10th anniversary with the theme United We Flourish. And what does United We Flourish mean? It means that our company would not be here without the amazing companies we work with, the designers who create stunning projects showcasing the wonderful products being created AND you, our fabulous customers! YOU are such a vital part of our creative community – you inspire & encourage us! Your response to United We Flourish was overwhelming and heart-warming. We heard repeatedly from you that you appreciate how our little company works together with the other manufacturers we carry to bring you their products and education showing how to use those products. To thank you for your constant support and encouragement, we have partnered with some of our friends to offer exclusive limited edition stamp & die sets!!! These sets will be available for a limited time (most likely 3-6 months) after each release, depending on how quickly you snap them up. The theme of these stamps sets are uplifting and fun.

We are thrilled to present the third one to you…Sending Sunshine by Honey Bee Stamps exclusively for Ellen Hutson LLC.

And here is my card!

And here’s how I made it! I simply smooshed my Distress Oxide Inks onto my craft mat and spritz with water.

Place your paper into the ink and be fearless!! Don’t be afraid to press it into different areas. If it pools on the edges, tap it onto a paper towel. You can dry if you’re happy either by heat tool or by air. Use more color…or finish.

I like a slightly more distressed look so I usually add water at this point. Just spritz water into your hand and allow droplets to fall onto the panel or use a wet paintbrush and flick water. Just be sure to use a clean paper towel to “bleach” the color out for the best effect.

I die cut a few shapes out of the paper that I wished to use.  The Sun Ray is from Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies, Silver Linings by Julie Ebersole  and the sun is from the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, All Inside by Julie Ebersole.

For that amaaaaazing sparkle I used one of my favorite products: Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. I used a palette knife and scraped it on top of my paper. The paste picks up the color of what’s underneath. And simply SHINES!! It’s so pretty.

I die-cut the words “Sending” and “Sunshine” out of white and black cardstock and adhered the pieces together using Ranger Multi Medium in Matte. Then I stamped the words “A Little” out of Versafine Onyx Black onto Vellum and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder.

All of the various pieces were adhered to another colored piece of cardstock. Which was then layered on two MORE pieces of cardstock! Embellishments were added and this card was done. Here’s a close up for ya…

Don’t forget that there are **PRIZES** involved in this hop.  Oh yes!! Two randomly selected commenters  will win a $30 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson shop. To enter just leave a comment on either the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog or the HoneyBee Blog  by 11:59pm PST on Friday, September 8.
