November 2018 – Essentials by Ellen Release

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.

Pretty Pink Posh Watercolored Wild Roses

Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! Just thought I’d share a little card I made using some products from one of my very, very, VERY favorite people on Earth today. And that’s Pretty Pink Posh. Not only is Paulina just NICE, but her stamps/dies and embellishments are some of the best around.

Paulina and I go waaaaay back. Before she even started her own company. I first met her at a CHA when she was working the DeNami booth for her mom. I was there with Kelly Marie Alvarez of Lawn Fawn (before Lawn Fawn existed!!) and we were just scoping things out. It was fantastic. Meeting and hugging Paulina was such a highlight for me. She is 100% as nice in person as she seems on the Internet.  We’ve stayed friends ever since.

So! That brings me to today’s card. I’m using her gorgeous Wild Rose Stamp and Die set along with some of her amazing sequins. I’m also using her Hello Friend die that I’m just using the “hello” portion of.

All of that luscious coloring was completed with Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolor pencils. They are by far the best watercolor pencils out there.  I’m not even a pro at this kind of thing and they make me look good! ;)

Here’s a look at when I had just started coloring:


TONS of pigment in the pencils. that are fade resistant, and light fast. They also have unbreakable leads! What I love about this company is that they are eco-conscious and plant trees for those they remove. Gotta love that. They’re NOT cheap, but they are worth every penny and I would consider an investment.

I didn’t do much for this card other than color the images, die-cut some paper, and die-cut the images and layer them with foam squares. But I love how it turned out. It’s super pretty with that gorgeous patterned paper. And, of course, the Pretty Pink Posh sequins are just the icing on the cake.

I hope you enjoyed the card. All my supplies are listed below and are linked to shop for your convenience.

Catherine Pooler Blog Hop

Hey everyone and welcome to my stop on the Catherine Pooler Blog Hop.  The team at Ellen Hutson LLC is super excited to have the Catherine Pooler products in the shop so we’re celebrating with this awesome hop. You should have arrived at my blog from my friend, and the phenomenally talented, Kittie Caracciolo.

I was so super excited to be able to use the Catherine Pooler inks. I’ve heard so much about how amazing they are. And, if you’ve never tried them? I really DO suggest that you buy a few pads. Everything that you hear about these inks is 100% true. Absolutely ALL of the hype. Since I enjoy doing mixed media, I can be a little rough on my ink pads and these pads are dreamy. One tap with a stamp and you’re set to go. But, even with blending they’re so smooth and clean. Not splotchy and very intense (if you want). I know without a doubt that these with be my new go-to ink pads. They are so worth it.

I did a lot of ink blending over stamped, embossed and die-cut images for my card.

 

The stamp set is called Zen Feather and is so pretty (you can see most of it in the image above). I stamped 6 of the feathers in Versamark Ink, heat embossed them with Platinum embossing powder, then die-cut each one.

Then using select inks from the Zen Garden Collection (linked below) I sponged and blended 3 colors at a time onto each feather. I love how they turned out. Really beautiful. Prior to adhering to the card front I blended a little of the Shea Butter Ink and also some Polished Ink to the card front in the center where the feathers will be, just to provide a little interest.

Everything then gets adhered down after that. I embellished with some confetti sequins and a little nest of fine string, too. Seemed fitting with the feathers.  ;) I thought about adding a sentiment and then decided I liked it without one…at least on the front. When it gets mailed, I’ll add it inside. There are a few beautiful sentiments included with the set.

Please continue to hop along with us to see all of the rest of the Ellen Hutson, LLC Design Team’s creations. Your next stop is the brilliant MICHELE FERGUSON !! I know that she’ll have something gorgeous in store for you. You can always go back to The CLASSroom if there are any broken links.)

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the hop!

 

 

Two Takes on a Trend – Feb 2018

Hey everyone! Welcome to my first Two Takes on a Trend post for Ellen Hutson in the CLASSroom. Myself and Emily Midgett are taking on the color palette and our own take on it. (Be sure to check out the The CLASSroom for the post or her blog to see her beautiful card, too.)

Here is the Pantone Palette that we are using for our cards:

It’s pretty, huh?

So, I looked at the palette and decided to use it quite literally. I made stripes out of the chosen colors using Distress Oxide Inks. Then cut the panel at an angle and layered it on a coordinating piece of colored cardstock. To keep the card looking trendy and fresh, I stamped and die-cut the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps and Designer Dies Mondo Peony using Versamark Ink (with gold embossing powder) and cardstock weight vellum.


Since I used gold as my embossing powder, I wanted to bring out that shimmer. Just a little. So I cut a tiny strip of gold glitter paper to tuck behind my front card layer.

On a separate strip of vellum I stamped my sentiment from Right At Home Clear Stamps, Tiny Sentiments. This set has so many wonderful, perfectly sized sentiments.

Before adhering anything down and embellishing I splattered the Distress Oxide front panel with a little bit of water, just to make it a bit more interesting. I love that slightly bleached out look, personally. I adhered everything down and added a few Crystal Clear Confetti pieces for that beautiful shine.

I hope that you are inspired by the cards that we ALL are making using this wonderful color palette. It’s always useful to see how the very same colors are used in such different ways so I hope you enjoyed the Two Takes on a Trend feature between Emily and myself.

United We Flourish Better Together Blog Hop

Happy Sunday and welcome to my stop on this super special blog hop. This is a wonderful collaboration between Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson LLC and we’re thrilled to bring this limited United We Flourish release to you today. I hope that you arrived here  from the blog of my friend (and the enormously talented) Libby Hickson.

My card is a tiny bit out of my comfort zone. But as I was creating it, I just went with the flow instead of over-thinking it (as I am VERY prone to do). I’m trying very hard this year to just “let go” with my creativity. And see wherever it takes me. I think you’ll see it in the card, too.

It’s cute, isn’t it? I still did some water color and some ink blending with the background, but I didn’t go overboard.  It’s even (dare I say it?) simple? Or at least it is to me! ;) I also don’t make many cute cards, But, these little love birds were fun.

If you’re a bird-lover? Then this set is for you! It’s full of our fine-feathered friends! And all kind of fun sentiments, too. And, if you’re a collector of the United We Flourish sets, then I know you’ll have fun coloring this one for sure.

Here is a better look at the set and coordinating dies:
