Welcome to the November 2018 release for Essentials by Ellen! So many wonderful wonderful stamps and dies in this release. I’ll be showcasing one of the wonderful new Stencil Dies and the new stamp set called Snow Days.
For the card above I used the Snowfall by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies. I made the die into an actual stencil and used a white pen to make the “snow” dots. The other set used is Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Bear Ware 2 by Julie Ebersole.
This card was made using the sure to sell-out Snow Days by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps. This set has so many versatile phrases and prints. Fun personified! Also used on this card and the first card were the Lawn Fawn, Lawn Cuts, Stitched Snowflakes.
Below are the stamps and dies that I used from this latest release.

Hi there, and welcome to my blog for the final Essentials by Ellen release for 2017. You should have arrived here from the wonderfully talented and oh-so-sweet Karolyn Loncon’s blog. This release is all about celebrating! Birthdays, having fun, cake, confetti, balloons!! Even having a little sparkly. Whether it be sparkling cider or champagne, I think that you’ll find the release a perfect addition for any occasion: Birthdays, Anniversaries, Friendship, and just about anything else your mind can dream up.
I’m using a few of the new sets from the new release for my pretty in pink card. (With my focus on the new Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Banner Cake By Julie Ebersole. Here is the card I made. I hope you all like it. It has a TON of shine!! 😎
The following are the two sets I used to make my card:
Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Celebration Lady By Brandi Kincaid
Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Banner Cake By Julie Ebersole
As you will have seen from the previous days of this release hop ALL of the sets are so fun and versatile. I used the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Creative Sheets to die cut my “cake”. Remove the top layer of adhesive liner and then place a sheet of gold foil on top. Burnish the foil with a tool such as the teflon bone folder (shiny shine up). The adhesive from the foam sheet will “lift” the foil. This way you will get the shimmer and shine of the foil AND the loft from the foam! Total win.
Before I took the backing off the other side of my golden cake 😉 I created a very simple background. First, I ran a piece of the beautiful dotted paper (which is actually the Essentials by Ellen Paper Pack, Modern Graphics by Julie Ebersole) through my laminating machine with a piece of Deco Foil pink melon foil. The center of the foiled paper was ink blended with a few colors of Distress Ink Oxides and the sentiment was heat embossed with a beautiful gold embossing powder from WOW!.
The last step is simply to add embellishments and put the card together. It’s a simple card with a POW! factor. Here’s a close-up:
And rounding out this Saturday hop is the AMAAAAAAAAAZING Jessica Frost-Ballas who I know without a doubt will blow your minds 🤯with her talent!!! I hope everyone had fun on the hop today. ♥

Hi, welcome to my blog and Day FOUR of the anniversary celebration for Ellen Hutson, LLC. And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! To be included in this hop with so many talented and wonderfully kind people in this community always boggles my mind. But, Ellen exudes that kind of graciousness across all stamp designers and stores. She’s a loving, kind and warm-hearted person. And I am forever grateful for the day she asked me to be part of her team.
When I was asked to pick my favorite set to design with I picked one of my early faves designed by Julie Ebersole called Bokeh Dots. I just love the versatility of this set. It’s an abstract set, but very open to interpretation. I made a very “loose” wreath with it for my card today. And used another older die Brushstroke Peace for my centerpiece. All of the color is done with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. *quick edit – Since there seems some confusion as to whether I embossed with gold or silver? I used PLATINUM!! ;)*
I love doing loose watercoloring like this. And beautiful abstract sets like Julie’s make my style of design so easy to work with.
I’m always looking forward to what new, fun, or inspirational designs and sets Ellen has found for us on the horizon. It truly is such a joy to be a part of her team and to partner with so many other wonderful talented ladies, too.
Happy Anniversary, Ellen. And thank you for opening your warm and comforting arms to me so many years ago at CHA and inviting me to be a part of your family. I love you!
*wiping my happy tears away*

Hi crafty friends, and welcome to a very special blog hop. A hop for hope. You should have arrived at my blog from the wonderful Laurel Beard‘s blog and your next stop on this hop will be the fabulous Nichol Spohr‘s blog.
As many of you may or may not know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The stamp set that we are all using was designed in May to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Fund (BCRF). Please read the post on The CLASSroom blog to see how this beautiful stamp set all came to be and how YOU can help. –> LINK <–
This is the beautiful stamp and die set we all used:
In honor of this amazing hop, with these beautiful, brave women joined together today, I made a card! Yay!
Really simple, layered stamping with a water-colored pink ribbon. I turned my oval on it’s side for a little interest (which I thought was fun and made things flow much better).
And a close-up!
There is a lot of dimensional adhesive used to give it dimension. Sometimes that isn’t seen when looking at the card as it’s laying flat. But’ the flowers are at different heights and it’s quite fun.
All of the wonderful and talented people involved in this hop are listed below, so please stop and say hi and leave some love.

In honor of three amazing mothers, Chaitali, Julie and Ellen, teamed up to find a way that they could make a difference and honor these very special women in their lives and actively contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer. Together we have created the Courage Stamp & Die Set.

We know that many of you are affected by this disease or other forms of cancer and we are turning to you for help.

Together we can!
Let me share with you the card I made for this amazing and beautiful event:
“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.”
I loved using the big ribbon die-cut with some glitter paper for the POP! The layered floral stamps and dies added the perfect soft touch around the banner for the sentiment which I stamped and heat embossed onto vellum. A few splatters for interest using Tonic Nuvo Embellishment Mousse which I watered down. And the Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops complete the card. Simple, yet striking. Don’t you think? :)
Make sure you stop by the amazing Sandy Allnock’s blog. She’s up next on this very special blog hop. The full hop list is below, should you get lost or are in need of links.
