This week I’m posting a different design every day, featuring stamps and dies from the August 2017 Essentials by Ellen Release

Grow go detail-je

This fantastic sentiment from Plant Ladies Say works awesome for camouflaged die cutting (Click HERE for a video tutorial on this technique)–I have more ideas and variations for combining both sets with this technique–I wish there were more hours in the day for me to have tried them all!

In real life, it’s such a cool effect, but it’s hard to see when you shoot a project straight on, so I took an angled shot.

Gosh, I just adore a sentiment with presence!!! Don’t you?! :)

I hope the ideas I’ve shared this week have sparked you in some way! If you share your projects on Instagram, please hashtag it with #essentialsbyellen I get such a kick out of seeing how YOU use the stamps and dies!

Thank you so much for popping over here all week–so appreciated!
