Essentials by Ellen - Blog Hop

Hey everyone!
It's hoppin' day for the latest Ellen Hutson Essentials by Ellen release!

Today, I'm playing with the new Leading Ladies - Baker Lady stamp set.   I love love love these ladies and this baker is just too cute!  That pie - it has my heart!

For my card, I stamped and die cut my baker lady and a bunch of the bowls and add on images - seriously how cute are these lil' bits and pieces to play with?!?!  Then, I colored everything in with Copics and positioned everything with dimensional foam.

For the hop - your next stop is the fabulous Carissa Wiley!  You can find the entire hop order below!

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a great one!

    Hello, hello!  I've got a project on the Avery Elle blog today using the new Merry Flowers stamp set - won't you go check in out???

    If not, I'll share it here too. ;)

    I adore this little mini stamp set!  These flowers are so wonderful and they completely remind me of my personal decorating Christmas style!

    For my project I decided to make some tags!  I simply never have enough tags at Christmas and I thought this stamp would be perfect!
    I die cut some tags in white cardstock using the new Shaker tags dies.  Then, I stamped and colored in each of the Merry Flower bouquets.  I looped some ribbon and tie it with Cherry Avery Elle twine (I LOVE THIS STUFF)

    Simple and elegant and I love how it turned out!
    It's hard to see but I colored in around the flowers with my lightest blue Copic ink.  Then, I gradually faded the colors so the bottom of the tag is white!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!  Have a lovely day!

    Poinsettias on vellum

    Eep!  I'm so excited to share today's card with you.  It's also on the Avery Elle blog too!

    Today's card features the gorgeous new Holiday Bouquet stamp set!

    I love love love the look of elegant flowers heat embossed on vellum!   This trick is a good one and works well for mass production!

    To create my card, I first stamped and heat embossed the images on the vellum.  Then, on the back side, I colored them in with my Copics!  Super easy and it totally has the "wow" factor! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me! 
    Have a great one!

    Brring On The Joy

    Hey everyone!!!  I've got a card on the Avery Elle blog today with the new Brring On The Joy stamp set!  These penguins absolutely crack me up and I just love all the elements that accompany these skating penguins!

    You can see the entire card making process in the video below! 

    I don't normally share videos of the entire card making process but just couldn't resist here! :) What'd you think?  Did you like the Copic colors listed in the video???

    I used the Wonky Stitches die to create a background and cut stars from the new Cityscapes die.  The banner is from Woodland Wonders and of course all of the penguin elements are from Brring On The Joy!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
