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.)
Today I have a Noel Card featuring Taylored Expressions for #TexturalTuesdays on The CLASSroom blog for EllenHutson.com . I absolutely ADORE so many of the wonderful products I was able to use for this card. Especially the Watercolor Panels! So fun!
The panels are 3″ x 4″ and there are 12 to a pack and are so affordable. They’re available for so many occasions, too. I may have to hoard them. Just sayin’. ;)
I love that using a simple die, some felt and watercolors turned this into a beautiful card.
I can see myself using the die for this Noel Card a lot. I just love the design. And the cardstock that Taylored Expressions has is just so luscious, as well. 100# and in so many beautiful colors. I want them ALL!! :D
Check out their fun sequins selections, too, while you’re there. And NOW through November 12th there is 15% off of all in stock Taylored Expressions products so now is DEFINITELY the time to shop. :)
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my fun Noel Card today! If you want to shop? Then please check out my affiliate links below. ♥
Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.
Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception.
Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.
The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange).
Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background. And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.
The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.
As usual, all of my supplies are listed below. If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!! ♥
