I’ll admit it; I’m an absolute sucker for hand-painted lettering and typewritten sentiments. I really, really–and I mean REALLY– wanted so many of the things I truly would say on a card in a multi-occasion greeting set.  Got my wish!!! *fist pump* :)

Welcome to the Essentials by Ellen November 2017 Release hop!  Everything starts at the CLASSroom, so if you get lost, be sure to check there! :)

The initial idea of this set was to be able to mimic abstract paintings–I just think they are so beautiful and usable for both feminine and masculine type greetings all on their own–not to mention how they can be used to compliment other stamp sets!

I can’t wait to recreate the “collage” effect above in more of my favorite color schemes and make sets of notecards for holiday gifts!

If you’re intimidated by actually painting on your cards, or trying to achieve the exact same paint stroke consistently every time,  you can totally fake it all the way with this stamp set, LOL!

This made a fab background for this awesome sentiment in Crafty Ladies Say, by Brandi Kincaid!

And, heck, you can use paint strokes to spell a thing or two out! LOL!  I used the little tiny heart die from Oh, Frappé! Die set to punch through the “blob” to make my “O”.  Felt so clever over that one… Hah!

ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN OCTOBER RELEASE HOP – 3

Hope you’ve been enjoying lots of eye candy over the last two hops–can you take one more day? :)

Today’s project is a fuzzy one, featuring the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Bear Hugs by Julie Ebersole

ebe-201710-dies-where-is-bear-plush-fw50

 

I had seen some adorable felt tissue pouches on Pinterest and it occurred to me that Bear would make such a cute one! I cut a simple slit across the mid-section of the front layer, after I had stitched on his facial features and then I sewed together the front and back layers.  Couldn’t resist using some of the Snailed It  Dies to add some accents. I folded up some pocket tissues and tucked them inside, but you could tuck all sorts of things inside–this would be a cute way for a child to put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy to come or tuck a small gift or individually wrapped candies inside! You could even wind up and store a set of those ear pods/headphones to a music player inside him!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are feeling fully inspired to make some fun things with this latest release!
