Essentials by Ellen October Release

Hi there everyone and welcome!! We’re doing a little hop to celebrate the fabulous new Essentials By Ellen October Release. I hope that you’ve arrived here from the Mondo talented Julie Ebersole’s blog . If you need to start at the beginning, just go back and start at the CLASSroom.

I’m playing with the super wonderful new stamp and die set called Thistle which was designed by the ever-so-lovely Julie Ebersole. I just love the kind of loose interpretation of what everything is and could be.  This is really gorgeous set.

I also incorporated a few berries and a sentiment from an older stamp set just to make my card complete. This was fairly simple stamping with multiple Distress Inks onto the stamp, stamping, then using a waterbrush, making the image look a bit more watercolor-ish.  I added a brown colored pencil to the center of the leaves. To me, it completed the look. But, it’s just a personal preference.

It would also be fun to mix and match the leaves from the Snailed It stamp set with this one. I simply chose not to.  I hope you won’t hold that against me. :)

Julie’s patterned paper was run through my Minc mini with Gold transfer foil and the gold in the card is perfectly tied together. It’s a super pretty card. And I love the die-cut felt acorns. LOVE THEM!!

This release is so beautiful and sweet. Perfect for Fall. Don’t wait too long if you want to snatch this one up. It will sell out fast.

Next up on today’s awesome hop is the wonderfully talented  Melania Deasy. I know you’re going to love what she created for you.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope that you enjoy the hop. :) All of my supplies are listed below. (Affiliate links are used when possible.)

September Release Hop for Essentials by Ellen

Woohoo!! There’s nothin’ I like better than a new release! How ’bout you? And lucky for YOU Ellen Hutson now has ’em every month! Yeah, baby, yeahhh!! (Said in my best Austin Powers voice. *ahem* If you don’t know, that’s perfectly okay.)

I digress. This month is so amazing. And we have an awesome blog hop this week to get you going. You should have arrived at my blog from the P*H*E*N*O*M*E*N*A*L Tracey McNeely’s blog. In fact, I wouldn’t blame you for going back and hanging out there awhile. She’s pretty stinkin’ talented (as you all know).  And, you can always go back to The CLASSroom to start over or check out any other blogs you may have missed in the hop.

So I made a “Coal” (heh) tag using the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Concertina Tag by Julie Ebersole for both of my projects but one is definitely more Bah Humbuggery (yes, it’s a word!!) and the other is a SET of tags. I hope you like them both.

And here is the tag all closed and tied up. So cute!

And now for my trio of tags. I love the simplicity of these. But the bold POPS! of color are what make these so fun.

That Fall one would be so fun to give at Thanksgiving with a bottle of wine or whatever you’re bringing to the feast, don’t you agree? No one says you HAVE to use holly leaves for Christmas. :)

And don’t forget to check out all the awesome projects from ALL the hoppers, if you haven’t. Thank you SO much for stopping by today!!

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.

Essentials by Ellen – Christmas in July

Hi friends! Long time no see. :) I’m so happy to be sharing a fun CHRISTMAS card using the beautiful release from the 2016 Essentials by Ellen Holiday Collection for you today.

There’s a few of us sharing cards over on the The CLASSroom blog, so I hope that you’ll check out everyone’s cards and see what we’ve been up to. And maybe to inspire you and give you a head start on creating your holiday cards. (Although I’m a tried and true procrastinator.)

I hope that you like the card that I created. I’ll share a few pics showing just a few of my pics from my process, too.

Usually when I start creating I like to figure out what my stamps are, then what my color “theme” will be. Then I’ll play around a little with a layout. I do this before even stamping a darn thing! I take FOREVER creating. No kidding. But, I really want my cards to be unique and different. And I am in no way a CAS stamper. Once I kind of have a plan in mind? THEN I can start. It’s a bit of a tedious process, but it works for me. And it’s truly the only way that works for me.

With this I started by stamping the wreath onto the Neenah paper. Once stamped (and heat embossed) I die-cut it using the matching die-cut. After it was die-cut, I then used some of the pretty Tonic Nuvo Drops (both Crystal and Glitter). I wanted them in both Glitter and Crystal. And I selected colors that were not necessarily typical holiday colors, but are very happy and fun.

I used the Tonic Nuvo Drops to “color” in the different circles of the wreath. I simply colored in one circle (or wreath bulb) at a time and moved slowly around the wreath.  The Tonic Nuvo Drops dry fairly quickly. Just set aside and be very careful NOT TO TOUCH!! (Ask me how I know.)

The rest of the card is just a matter of putting the pieces into place.  The background patterned paper is so bright and matches the wreath perfectly, but I decided that it might detract from the wreath so I used a piece of vellum to tone it down.  Vellum is so useful and elegant. I love using it on my cards.

For the sentiment I omitted the “sparkle” portion of the stamp (since I’d be using the Sparkle Die) using a post-it-note. This is super easy to do. You could also cut the sentiment stamp apart, but I elected not to do that.

Adding the confetti clear sequins finishes off the card and adds the extra sparkly touch. A sparkly, bright, happy holiday card that’s perfect for anyone! :)

I’m showcasing two stamp sets today.  Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Spa Day by Brandi Kincaid and Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole.

The first card that I made just makes me giggle. I used Copic Markers to color the cutie from the Spa Day stamp set, the candle, some flowers and cucumbers. Then I used the coordinating die set and die cut them all out, plus the face mask. I also used the ARC Crafts Cherry wood Veneer Envelopes (what I had on hand) to die cut the mirror. Love that stuff and it makes the mirror more homey looking. The mirror’s bulbs were created using the 4mm Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh, and coloring them with a bright yellow Copic.

I also used the Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies by Brandi Kincaid Mirror, Mirror to create the mirror. The phenomenal quote is from the Spa Day Stamp Set.

My second card is a little bit different, but I hope you like it. I’m using the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole for this one.

The beautiful yellow cardstock was stamped in Versamark repetitively with the polka dots to form the background (using the MISTI) and then heat set using a clear embossing powder.

Then using the large dots from the set I used Distress Inks to create watercolor spots/blobs/dots. ;) Once dried, I stamped over them with Versamark using the sketchy wheel designs from the same set and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. Using a stamped/heat embossed sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Mirror Mirror by Brandi Kincaid completed the card. I just love how graphic this card is and shows the many ways you can use the stamps from the Wonky Backdrops set.  It’s a keeper! HA!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I know I had fun creating them. This is a really great release that has something for everyone. So onto your NEXT stop! The always amazing Sandy Allnock!! Enjoy her wonderful creativity and the rest of the hop.
