12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017

Happy Friday! I hope that you’ve been checking in on the CLASSroom blog as there have been already a week’s worth of Ellen Hutson designers and guests for the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017.

I’m so super excited to once again be paired up with the amazing Jill Foster of Penny Black. I’m always a little stunned when I’m paired with her as she’s SUCH a phenomenal designer. It’s like being told that you’re being paired with the Michelangelo of card design as your guest. A teeensy bit overwhelming. I can only do my own thing, though, y’know? Comparison will only kill ya.

SO!! For my challenge (since I’m the lead designer on this gig) I decided to create a SKETCH!! How fun, right? And I hope that you ALL will play along.

I’ll show you a sneak peek of my tag, but I REALLY want you all to head over to the CLASSroom for all of the fun. There’s prizes to be had!! YESSS!!!

HOWEVER? If you use my sketch? Please let me know in the comments with a link. I’d love to see what you created so I can head on over to YOUR blog and comment. ♥ I’ve been known to give stuff away, too., so I’d love to see you create with my sketch! ;)

Have a great time with the 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2017!!

Ink Week

Hey there! It’s Ink Week over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson and I’m so lucky to be able to feature Distress Inks on this #TexturalTuesday.

I had so much fun making this card. Lots of ink blending and the addition of Texture Paste. Very textural.

Let me show you the card and then tell you a little bit more about Ink Week.

Using the gold to bring out the colors underneath was something I’m hoping I pulled off. To me, being able to see the full image isn’t important, but to make the card/colors/imagery make you feel something. I hope that makes sense. This is one of the reasons I love mixed media so much. It’s not what you necessarily see, but what you feel that’s important.

For how I made the card, all of the details are on the CLASSroom blog. There are lots of photos and information for you, if you’d like to replicate the card.

Ellen is also doing a full-on Ink Week! All of the designers are featuring a different ink and how we use them in our posts. Not only that, she is running a wonderful promotion.

Click on the image above to be taken directly to the sale. I hope that you’ll take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to stock up on your inks!

This Ink Week is going to feature a lot of different ways to use your inks and many different styles so stay tuned for the whole week.

I’m including all of my supplies below for my project, some were purchased by me and some were provided for promotional purposes. These ARE affiliate links so if you choose to shop using the links below I do earn an itty-bitty commission from your purchase. This keeps me running! xo

#TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs

Hi there crafty friends and welcome to #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs! :) Otherwise known as the first #TexturalTuesdays of 2017.

It’s going to be a fun one today as I share a card made using Avery Elle products made by Heather Campbell who is also a designer for Ellen Hutson. She is so amazing.

This card I made for #TexturalTuesdays is using tons of color mediums: Copic markers, Zig Clean Color Markers, and Distress Inks!! All on one card.  And I *think* I pulled it off.  ;)  As I sold most of my Copics? This was way out of my comfort zone, but I still did it.  Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns. I knew in order to give the hedgie the perfect quills, the Copic markers would be the best way to go.

For all of the behind the scenes action on the card, I urge you to check out the CLASSroom blog for my #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs card. You’ll read more about how this card was created and see more photos, as well.

All of the supplies for this card are listed below. As I am an affiliate for Ellen Hutson, I do receive a small, teeny tiny, itty-bitty commision for anything you  purchase through me. And I thank you in advance. It keeps my blog semi working (ha!) and bug free. ♥

Wishing you all a wonderful day! xo

The Mondo stamps have been so very popular and this one is sure to please, too.  The big, beautiful size of the stamps and dies will be a hit for mixed media AND stampers alike.

The largest flower is a MASSIVE 3½” x approximately 3¼”!! It truly is MONDO. (Julie wasn’t joking around.)

 I initially had so many ideas for this card it was hard to reign it in. I know that the pineapple trend is HUGE right now, but did YOU know that pineapples are a sign of hospitality and friendship? LINK I think that’s so cool!

 The card that I made is so colorful and fun! I used Distress Crayons, the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors for the beautiful shimmery golds (on both cards, actually), and a mix of Distress Inks, and Lawn Fawn Inks. :) The Pineapple crown was created with a light green foil. Fun, huh?

Here is a look at the Stay Golden Stamp set:

Mom’s Birthday

It was my Mom’s Birthday yesterday. And I made her a card. :) It’s what I do. The card that I made for her is today’s blog post in the CLASSroom for Ellen Hutson, LLC. I’ve actually been working on the card for a while since I really wanted it to be special. There’s some things you need to know about my mom…

My mom is my chauffeur (since I can’t drive), she is who I talk to every day (either by text or by phone) — she keeps me grounded. My mom makes me laugh. She gives me a shoulder to cry on when I need it. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s going on. She hasn’t gone into her “golden years” gracefully. She’s gone kicking and screaming, dancing, and laughing. And I wanted to make my mom a birthday that would make her smile.

LisaAdametz-MomBday-07192016-3

I made this card for her to let her know that I celebrate her every day. And that her birthday is just one more day to tell her I love her. 

The card for my Mom’s Birthday can be seen today in the CLASSroom along with the full tutorial on how to make it, if you should want to see my process. (With the exception of my coloring process – yaaawwwn!) 

All of the supplies that I used to make this card I have listed below along with a few alternatives. If any of the items are currently out of stock with ellenhutson.com, you can request to be put on the waitlist for the item for when it comes back in stock (love that feature!).

I hope that you like today’s card and that it makes you smile as much as it makes ME smile. :)
