Felt-Arctic   Felt-Bear   Felt-Colorpop


Felt-Flannel   Felt-Ornament   Felt-Snowman

Now on to my ornament! To create it, I used the new Sew Cute-Ornament die set.

I die cut two of the basic ornament shape from dark teal (wedgewood) felt. Next, the center strip of the ornament was die cut from aqua (caribbean) felt. The JOY word was created using Essentials by Ellen Classic Block Alpha, die cut from the center of the strip and also from bright pink (dragon fruit) felt. How fun would it be to customize this center piece with people's names?!!

TIP: Before stitching your ornament together, assemble and glue all the front accent pieces together:

  1. First, using the holly and berries dies from the Sew Cute-Snowman die set, die cut holly leaves from light green (mint julep) felt and the berries from light pink (sakura or carnation) felt. Using bright pink (cranberry 604) embroidery floss, stitch the berries to the leaves onto the aqua strip using a french knot. Then stitch the leaves with light green (pistachio 369) embroidery floss.
  2. Use a fabric glue to secure all the accent pieces to the front felt ornament piece. After die cutting the JOY word from the center aqua strip, glue the center strip to the front side of one of the teal ornament pieces, lining up the stitching holes on the outer edges. Then glue the bright pink JOY letters into the negative JOY letter spaces on the center strip; let dry. This will make stitching your ornament a lot easier!

10-4 SewCuteOrnamentCU2-SH
Finally, the ornament topper/cap was die cut from carnation pink felt and also fabric glued into place on the top ornament piece. With all of these pieces glued to the front of the ornament, you can begin stitching the front ornament to the back ornament piece using bright pink (Cyclamen Pink DMC 3804) embroidery floss. Once the ornament is stitched about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way closed, stuff the inside with cotton batting, if you have it on hand, or I just use cotton balls! Then finish stitching the ornament closed, leaving a loop of thread at the top to serve as a hanger.

Sew Cute Stitching Dies for Cardmaking or Felt Crafts - EBE October Release!

 

10-5 SewSnowman-SH

Hello & Happy Sunday, Friends!

Ig-20191006-ebe-release-available-01Today the October Essentials by Ellen release is available over at the Ellen Hutson LLC shop ... NOW!  You'll find a wonderful
new selection of holiday, fall, and general stamps and dies HERE!  

Come hop along with the Ellen Hutson team today, to find some fantastic inspiration! Links are listed below.

For today's project, I stitched a paper snow-woman for you!  Even though she is made with paper, you could easily make her from felt and have her be a removable holiday ornament!


It was super easy to build this sweet snow-woman!  First, I used the previously-released
Stitches Cover Plate on Neenah 100 Lb Solar White cardstock to create a quick and easy stitched background. Then I die cut the background using the new Sew Cute-Snowman die. The rest of my snow lady's ensemble was also die cut from cardstock and assembled, then stitched together with DMC Embroidery Floss.

10-5 SewSnowmanCU2-SH
To anchor snow lady to her Oyster Gray card base, I created some "snow hills" at the bottom using a Stitching Lines die and adhered her with Foam Mounting Tape to the card base. To finish the card, I added Stardust Stickles to the holly berries in her hat and silver heat embossed the Joy sentiment from Mondo Amaryllis. Easy, peasy ... done!

But first, here's a little about the card I have to share today, using Julie Ebersole's new Mondo Amaryllis stamp set and Mondo Amaryllis die set:

Isn't this floral gorgeous?!!  I stamped it with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink onto watercolor paper and watercolored with these Daniel Smith watercolors: Rhodonite Genuine (PrimaTek Set), Quinacridone Rose (Floral Half-Pan Set or Ultimate Mixing Half-Pan Set), Permanent Alizarin Crimson (Ultimate Mixing Half-Pan Set), Serpentine Genuine (Colors of Inspiration Half-Pan Set), Green Apatite (Floral Half-Pan Set). The finished floral was die cut with its coordinating Mondo Amaryllis die set and popped up on X-Press It Foam Mounting Tape.

8-9 PLJ AmaryllisCU-SH

The background was created on a 110 Lb. Solar White card base by stamping three of the great graphic sentiments from the Mondo Amaryllis stamp set with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink, then covering the base with Ellen's 40 Lb. Vellum. To finish the card, clear sequins were scattered.

Embossed Watercolor - June Essentials by Ellen

6-4 BigCityGoodTimes-SH

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends -- Today is release day over at Ellen Hutson LLC!  Once again, Julie Ebersole has a wonderful mix of whimsical stamps and die combos, along with some great stand alone dies you can mix with anything in your collection! 

I've used some of both on today's card: the new Good Times stamp and coordinating Good Times die sets, along with the Big City and Landscapes die sets, to create this Embossed Watercolor birthday card!

I hope you can see in the photo above how the multi-color sentiment is shiny?  That's because I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers to ink the letters and words in different colors directly on the stamp. First I stamped the sentiment all over with Versamark using my Misti, then without cleaning the stamp, I applied the different colors of watercolor marker directly on the stamp. The Versamark on the watercolor paper and left over on the stamp help to keep the color nice and wet long enough to then clear heat emboss, for that fun shiny look!  I did the same for the balloon outlines, then filled in the balloons with watercolor of the same color.

Color on the fun scooter was kept subdued, so the colored sentiment and balloons can take center stage ... I used Copic C1 and C2 to shade.

6-4 BigCityGoodTimesCU-SH
To finish the card, I die cut the sentiment piece (white watercolor paper) with the new Big City skyline die along the top edge and adhered to a black card base. Then the Landscapes die was used to cut the lower edge of the card. The scooter and balloons were mounted with foam tape.  

I'll have another card using this release to share with you next week, but in the meantime head over to the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog to find more inspiration from the rest of the Ellen Hutson team today!

Watercolor Wildflowers - May Essentials by Ellen

5-3 MondoWildflowers-SH

It's May Release day over at Ellen Hutson LLC -- Wonderful new stamp and die sets fresh for your Spring picking!  I naturally gravitate to flowers, so it's no surprise I have a wonderful watercolored Mondo Wildflower bouquet for you today:

This beautiful bouquet was gold heat embossed onto watercolor paper, then watercolored with Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing and Blues Half-Pan sets. I absolutely LOVE how effortlessly these watercolors blend on paper and the amazing shading you can get with them! 

5-3 MondoWildflowersCU-SH

The watercolored panel was die cut with a stitched rectangle die, then mounted onto a Solar White card base. One of the four great sentiments from this stamp set was also gold heat embossed, cut into a banner shape, and popped up with foam tape.
