Yay! New Stamps! Essentials by Ellen Jan 2018 Release

jan 2018 release video title yt

Winter cards: They aren’t just for Christmas!  Am I right? I get kinda sad when Christmas is over, because I still have sooooo many ideas for snow and ice cards I wanna make!  I decided creative winter fun must continue. *big cheesy grin*

Be sure to check out the CLASSroom–we have some fab guest artists and an awesome compilation of their samples to share with you there, and I also did an overview video of the stamps and dies.

I’ve been having a ridiculous good time with these new sets and have some samples to share:

swhale-001-je

Additional stamps/dies used:  Stay Salty (waves & sentiment); Bottles of Bubbly Die

I had to do it.  It was nagging and nagging at me to be made. :)

S’WHALE STAMP SET / S’WHALE DIE SET

 

arctic Pals-001-je

Additional die used:  Hero Arts Infinity Circle

The baby bear reminds me sooooo much of my dog, named Bear because when he was a puppy, he looked like a little polar bear–even their facial expressions are the same!!!

ARCTIC PALS STAMP SET / ARCTIC PALS DIE SET

 

arctic pals-005-je

Like I mention in the video–it can be used/applied in so many different ways–makes a great window, but you can also use it as a stencil, use the die cut pieces themselves.  It can be water/waves/ocean, it can be a landscape backdrop… I’m dying to see how YOU will use it!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today–I’ll be sharing more ideas this week!

Stay cool! ;)

uwf-concord-9th-both-fw50 SWEET SPRINKLES STAMP & DIE SET

My project features “faux” watercoloring–one of my favorite cheat methods of getting that watercolor look on a solid image!

sweet cone 001-je

I used the border sprinkles image to create a striped background and then layered some vellum over top to diffuse the pattern a bit.  The cone and ice cream were inked up with Art Graphic Twin Markers, spritzed with water, and then stamped onto watercolor paper.  When it was dry, I stamped the sentiment over the ice cream with black ink and then die cut everything out.

sweet cone 002-je

A little messy next of gold thread is layered behind the ice cream cone and then I embellished it with the little heart cut from foil card stock.

EEP!  So cute!

Poppin-Bottles-001A-je

This is a larger sized bottle die–I love the presence it has–makes for some really fun options!  Here I just die cut it from the fun Happy Hooray Paper pad that’s part of the Party Bundle.

Poppin-Bottles-001B-je

I hand-lettered the “Cheers” die and love using it to accent the the bottle!

Methinks this would make fun New Year’s Party invite, too!  I posted a few weeks ago with a project featuring this die set, check it out HERE.
