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.)

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.

Color Trend Week with Ellen Hutson

Hey Everyone! This is a fun week on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC as we are having a Color Trend Week. This week, Ellen has chosen Black & White with a Pop of Color. You know that that prompt made my brain go into hyperdrive, right? ;)

I thought it would be really interesting to go with a really BOLD (but simple) Black and White background and then for my Pop of Color to go with a watercolor wash, but with bright colors. I hope my description makes sense. It did in my head when I was designing it. LOL!! In essence, I wanted the background to be a complete juxtaposition of the beautiful Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Mondo Peony by Julie Ebersole.

I’m kinda crushing on my own card. And I love how these colors play off of each other. I used Laurel’s June Pin-sight’s Challenge as my Pop of Color inspiration which you can see in the photo below. I hope that you’ll want to play along. It’s always a fun challenge.

All of my coloring of the Mondo Peony is done on Bristol Paper. It just works so much better with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I chose to color the leaves in a black/grey scheme to keep the color focused on the flower. And also added some flicks of black ink onto the flower itself to tie the black color from the flower BACK to the card. I hope that makes sense. These things always do in my head, but when I try to explain them they just sound weird. HA!

The only other thing done was the tiny little “Hello” was stamped using a Versafine Ink Pad, Onyx Black which was then heat embossed with Wow! Embossing Powder, Super Fine – Clear Gloss. The “Hello” is from Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps All Inside, by Julie Ebersole.

This is a VERY easy card to recreate. All you need is the right tools. And lucky for YOU? Ellen Hutson, LLC carries them all. :) Don’t forget to stop by the CLASSroon blog for more inspiration, too.

I have a supply list right below if you’re looking for anything that I used in my card and a few close ups of the card, too. Thanks, so much, for stopping by today!

Irresistible Sprays

I have a new post on the CLASSroom blog for #TexturalTuesdays today using some really fun Irresistible Sprays from Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts. These are Texture Sprays and leave a bit of a bumpy, texture behind after spraying. They come in a TON of colors which is lovely. I think I need to play with them in a capacity where I don’t have just a “project” in mind. 

Here’s a look at today’s project, but I do urge you to head over to the blog to see how the card came together. If you’ve ever used this spray before I’d love to hear from you and what your experience has been. Please drop me a comment. 

I wish you all had touch-o-vision. This card really is meant to be touched. The IrRESISTible Texture Sprays are so unique. They left my card shiny, slightly grainy, and really fun to look at. I also took out the sprayer and made some drips. That turned out like ENAMEL!! Not. Kidding. Verrrry 3-D.  It’d be fun to see a spray that wasn’t in a color, y’know? A clear one? Then you could do resist techniques on top of it. Oooooohhh!! (Maybe I should make a product?!!?)

Again, the FULL post with pics and tricks is located at the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC over HERE.

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.
