ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN OCTOBER RELEASE HOP – 2

oct 2017 release collage

Yay! You came back! :)  Welcome to Day 2 of the Essentials by Ellen October 2017 release hop!  Today, I’m sharing a project made with:

Thistle overview-je

Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Thistle by Julie Ebersole / Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Thistle by Julie Ebersole

 

Thistle-003-je

This look was achieved by just inking up the images with Distress Ink Cubes, misting water on top and stamping onto watercolor paper.  Borrowed the sentiment from the Snailed It set.

After the stamping was dry, I smeared the ink cubes onto my non-stick craft sheet and picked up the color with a wet paint brush and flicked it over top to give it more of an “artsy” look.  LOVE this effect!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I’ll be sharing another on Thursday 10/12 with the new Bear Hugs Die Set!

ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN OCTOBER RELEASE HOP – 1

oct 2017 release collage

Hey, welcome, y’all! :)  Today’s the big day and the October Essentials by Ellen release is now available!

Today, I’m sharing a project using my new “Snailed It” stamp set (Snailed it Die Set):

Snailed it-004-je

 

This is a super easy peek-a-boo card, made by simply hiding the snail behind two die cut leaves that are secured to the card with a mini-brad–just pivot the leaves to reveal her bidding you a friendly hello! :)

Yes, I squealed after making this and bounced off my chair. *big cheesey grin*

I really love how shading directly on the solid images with the Avery Elle pigment inks looks! Stamping the leaves onto a lighter green card stock makes a great two-tone effect, too.

That little scallop border beneath the sentiment was made by inking up just one of the rows of scallops from a backdrop image in Wonky Backdrops, and I just hand-drew her facial features with a fine tip marker.

This is SUCH a fun set to build little garden scenes with! I was going for a “hand-carved”/linocut style.  What do you think?

Modern Christmas Tree with a Foiled Background

Mod xmas tree-001-jebersole

Gosh, I love how easy and fast it is to foil the patterns in the Modern Graphics Paper Pack–made for such a luxe “falling snow” background for my little mod tree!  Sometimes it’s just that little bit of glitz that makes the whole thing feel complete. :)

 

Mod xmas tree-002a-jebersole

 

I had to add a little messy nest of metallic thread behind my tree… I have to admit, that has become one of my favorite finishing touches.

This would be such an easy card to mass produce–even tho it’s all “fanci-fied”. LOL!

If you’re curious about what else can be done with these papers, Carolyn Peeler did a delightful preview for the Ellen Hutson YouTube Channel.  You can watch it here or over on YouTube.

Happy Hump Day!
