A Clean & Simple One Layer Card with Masking

So, I really, REALLY wanted to do a video in time for Cath’s release blog hop, but I just could not squeeze it in with all the irons I had in the fire… Video editing (for me) is often fairly time-consuming… It can sometimes take me two hours just to do the voice-over because my dog starts barking like a rabid canine at some innocent, harmless bunny rabbit sitting in the front yard (Unfortunately, I don’t have a sound-proof recording studio built into my home).  Or, I sometimes ramble… Or get the hiccups out of nowhere… Or get a tickle or frog in my throat and have to cough to clear it… OR, yes, scandalous though it may be to say it, I burp. GAAAAAH!!! *cheeks flaming scarlet*  Yup!  That can happen. It’s horridly embarrassing to be human sometimes, ya’ know what I mean???  Anyway, when I play it back, I think, “O.M.G., nobody wants to hear that crap!–Heck, *I* don’t wanna hear that crap!!!”… So, then I start all over. AGAIN.

Hey. I’m just keepin’ it real.

You can read more about my processes, if you are interested, HERE, where I was interviewed by the infamous and much beloved Joan Bardee, of Dear Paperlicious. Joan is probably my most favorite crafty blogger ever in the history of the world. I love her cards and totally, utterly, absolutely adore her writing style because I always leave with a big grin, laughing with her, and chuckling at myself!

But, I digress…

I shot this video on my iPhone using the Hyperlapse app; the card and technique are pretty straightforward and self-explanatory as you watch.

If you’d like to give the video a thumbs up over on YouTube, click HERE–it is much appreciated!



Have a gooder day! *big cheesy grin*




Cath Edvalson & Technique Tuesday Blog Hop



Hello, and welcome from the Technique Tuesday blog!

I’m so excited to be part of this very special hop for  Cath Edvalson

Cath’s new stamps and dies are a lot of fun and so reflective of her personality and warm heart! It was such a pleasure to create the projects shown here!  You can Cath’s delightful new line right here at Ellen Hutson LLC!



(feat. Garden of Life Stamp Set, Garden Leaves & Garden Flowers Dies)

 The shapes of these flowers and leaves were so fun to watercolor!



I copper embossed the images for this one and then washed some Distress Stains overtop in subtle hues–die cutting the leaves from vellum card stock and adding the little wood veneer heart was the perfect embellishment!

So, did ya’ know there is fab swag to be had, as well?  Yup!  Technique Tuesday is going to give away these awesome prizes:

  • One person will receive a package consisting of all 5 of Cath’s new products
  • Technique Tuesday will also give away two $25 gift certificates

The three winners will be chosen at random from all the comments left during the hop on all the blog stops. To be eligible to win, blog hoppers need to just leave a comment any of the blog hop stops. The more comments you leave during the hop,  the more chances you have to win.

Y’all have through midnight PST on Sept. 16th, 2015, to leave comments. The three winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on Sept. 18th, 2015. 


Your next stop is the wondermous Laura O’Donnell

If you get lost or want to check out the whole blog hop list just stop by the Technique Tuesday blog.

Enjoy all the eye candy!  WOOT!  And, warmest congratulations to Cath!
