Essentials by Ellen Winter 2016 Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2016 Hop! Wahooo what a fun release.  I tell ya, that Julie knows how to design some amazing sets!  If you didn't start from the beginning, you can start at the CLASSroom blog.   You should have arrived here from Laurel's blog.   
If you want to hop straight to the store, you can find the entire release HERE.   Or HERE
This bear.  I love him.  I mean LOVE him.  Seriously, he's so cute!!!
This bear is part of the All Inside stamp set.  That clever little die actually cuts out his arms so he can hold all sorts of goodness. I used one of the sentiments to create a heat embossed sentiment background on vellum (super soft appearance!) and then created a scene with a little tag.  Those envelopes he's holding are from the new Bitty Envelope die set, accented by a heart from Hearth and Home. 

Next I wanted to put just about every set I could to use. :)  I stamped the bear again, this time using no-line coloring and then put a cut heart in his hands.  Then, I created a background using the sun from the same All Inside stamp set and clouds from Up The Happy stamp set.

For additional hopping  fun,  I also get to give away an Essentials by Ellen stamp set!  The winner may chose ANY Essentials by Ellen brand stamp set (maximum value $15) currently in stock at Ellen Hutson.com  To enter my giveaway, please leave a comment on this post by February 16th!
There is also a crazy awesome Grand Giveaway in the CLASSroom!  To enter, be sure to leave a comment THERE, also by February 16th; ALL winners will posted at the CLASSroom on Friday, February 19th!
If you get lost, please visit the CLASSroom blog for a complete list of all the designers.
Happy hopping’!
