Essentials by Ellen



Hello, and welcome to the Spring 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! I’ll be showcasing some of the new stamp sets and dies in my post today!

You can find the entire new release HERE.
Check these out!  

For my first card, I used the new Amazing Women and Wild Gardens
First, I die cut the flowers from white and then I watercolored the insides with my Gansai Tambi watercolors!

Next, I used the Wild Gardens dies and cut them from cardstock. 
I accented these with a sentiment from Mondo Magnolias.
