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:

8-9 PLJ Amaryllis-SH
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

 

Ig-20190607-ebe-release-available-01Happy 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!

6-4 BigCityGoodTimes-SH
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

Fri, May 3 9:00am

Ig-20190503-ebe-release-available-02It'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:

5-3 MondoWildflowers-SH
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.

Instant Photo Scrapbooking

Good Morning, Friends! Today I have a scrappy project for you -- I know it's been a while, but the new Instant Photo Frames die set by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen was a wonderful inspiration to scrap a favorite photo!

4-2 InstantPhotoStJohn-SH

Ahhh ... my blood pressure lowers about 100 points when I see this view!  :D  I thought both of the great sentiments included in the Instant Photo Frames die set were appropriate, so I used them both!  The "Good Times" was cut out of both white and Bazzill Lollipop cardstock. I placed the Lollipop die cut letters into the white negative die cut cardstock, and placed that behind the smallest Instant Photo Frame which was stamped with Painted Stripes in black ink

4-2 InstantPhotoStJohnCU-SH
The other "Best Day Ever" sentiment was die cut from a Lollipop Folk Heart die cut. White cardstock was placed behind the "Ever" word, then the heart was accented with the arrow die, also stamped with Painted Stripes in black ink. The photo was mounted to a 6-inch square piece of Bazzill Gumball cardstock, with a finishing touch of the "St John" sentiment die cut with Essentials by Ellen Letterboard Larger Alpha.

I also have a quick bonus card created with more of this month's Essentials by Ellen release: Everyday Doodles stamp set (flowers), Everyday Punnies Stamp Set ("Thanks a bunch" sentiment), and the Painted Stripes stamp set:

4-4 PaintedStripes-SH
The flowers were stamped in different colors of Catherine Pooler's awesome Life of the Party and Foundations ink pad sets:

4-4 PaintedStripesCU-SH
The flower centers were shimmered with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen and popped upon foam tape.

Thanks for joining me today ... I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead!

April Essentials by Ellen Everyday Doodles + Punnies Notecard Set

Ig-20190405-ebe-release-available-02Happy Friday, Friends!  Today is release day over at Ellen Hutson LLC! There's a fabulous new round of stamps and dies that are sure to please the any-occasion cardmaker or scrapbooker alike! Please meet Everyday Doodles and Everyday Punnies by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen!

 

Ebe-201904-combo-everyday-fw20

These are the sweetest images and funniest sentiments . . . I couldn't resist making a set of notecards using all of the Everyday Doodles images!

4-1 EdayDoodlePunnyGrps-SHHere's a closer look at each of the 4.5" x 3.75" notecards:

4-1 EdayDoodlePunnyGrp1-SH

This notecard set was die cut using Catherine Pooler's Nested Label Dies cut from 110 Lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used Catherine Pooler's awesome Mini Ink Pad Bundle to stamp the images in all of the different ink colors. Colorful striped accents were made by inking the new Painted Stripes stamp in different colors (that task is made easier with these mini ink pads!), then cutting the stamped stripe image into thirds.

4-1 EdayDoodlePunnyGrp1-SH
The Everyday Doodles images were die cut with their coordinating Everyday Doodles Dies, then matched up with their coordinating Everyday Punnies sentiments and popped up with foam tape. Now I have a great selection of adorable notecards on hand to pop into a loved one's backpack, suitcase or briefcase, or send off to cheer up someone's day!

You can find the new Essentials by Ellen April Release exclusively at Ellen Hutson LLC.

Thanks so much for joining me today . . . I hope you have a lovely weekend!
