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!!

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!

I’m sharing a project made with Fleurs / Flowers stamps by Katzelkraft from France.  I used a lot of Golden Paints, Heavy Weight Modeling Paste, a fun stencil from My Favorite Things aaaand some Pearl Texture Luxe  for my background. Oh!! There’s also some tissue paper in there and I created texture with burlap that you can just barely see in the corner. Lots of fun Tonic Nuvo Crystal Drops, too. Did I mention the glitter? Because there’s glitter, too. It not only adds texture but a pop of shimmer. I wish the photo did it justice.

 

 

And another pic with just a slightly different view. This thing is a MASSIVE tag and very hard to photograph! Each one of the floral stamps is a tiny little shaker that I attached onto vellum and then created a shaker pocket for. Cool, huh?

#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 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. :)
