September Essentials by Ellen Release Hop – 3



feat. Concertina Tags Dies


Concertina tag-01-B-jebersole

Ombré shaker tag! YAAASSSS!!! :)  I brushed NUVO Mousse (Pink Flame / Mother of Pearl) across a tag I die cut from kraft card stock–I don’t typically go for pink at the holidays, but it looked so festive and fun!  Fun having the word “holiday” peeking out from behind, all label-like.  That background paper? Yes, from the Modern Graphics Paper Pack.  It goes with EVERYTHING!!! *giddy*

More creative eye candy awaits you from these lovely designers:

Are you in the mood for making your holiday cards and tags yet?

feat. Bear Ware 2 Stamp Set / Bear Ware 2 Dies (and the Bear from All Inside / All Inside Dies)

I can’t resist a play on words.  I try. But, resistance is usually futile, as in this case… *chuckle*

Bear’s got his cozy scarf wrapped around and a sweet little potted Christmas tree in his arms.  I think he’s ready for a beary, merry Christmas himself, LOL!

Sorry for the “fuzziness” of this picture–unfortunately, I didn’t have good daylight when I had to shoot, and no amount of editing seems to be improving it. Argh.

I masked off a hillside and then used a sponge dauber and some soft sea glass pigment ink to swipe up an artic sky–I left it a little streaky because it reminded me of the Northern Lights!  Over stamped the snowflakes with some white pigment ink so they show up subtly against that soft blue sky…

Teeny tiny star sequins make for a fun shaker card, doncha’ think?!

I  stamped the greeting and then just die cut the holly leaf through the top white panel and made a shaker box on the back side, filled it, sealed it and 3d mounted the whole panel to a base card.  Then I randomly watercolored on some watercolor paper scraps using Distress Oxide Inks and when they were dry, I die cut the shapes. glued those and some more of those stars on and added a little twine bow. So fun!

I’ll be back with another on Tuesday! :)
