Totally Fabulous!

Totally fabulous WEB1

This was such a fun die set to develop for the Ellen Hutson 9th Anniversary celebration! And, this card??? Also super fun to make using the dies!

“Totally” was die cut over the top of the stamped light rays from the Merry & Bright holiday stamp set–I’m all about the repurposing of holiday images whenever possible… :)  The letters on this die are designed to remain attached along the bottom and pop-out, and were inspired by a project Ellen herself had done for a newsletter article using a partial die-cutting technique with tissue paper back in 2012! SO fun! And, it reminds me that I need to get more colors of tissue paper to duplicate that *uber* cool rainbow effect!


Totally fabulous WEB2

“Fabulous” was die cut 3 times and then glued together to create a faux chipboard effect.  I thought about applying a high gloss glaze to it, but it looks kinda velvety in contrast to the shimmery gold Delicata ink and the Stickled edges so, being the “less is more” kinda gal that I am and loving it just as it was,  I let it be… That’s a hard thing to do sometimes, but when I looked at it hours later, I still felt the same way. LOL!

**While supplies last, this two piece die set will be included in all orders placed during the Anniversary celebration HERE at  Ellen Hutson LLC that total $75+ (after discounts and excluding S & H fees)!**  Awesome or what?!




Hope the video sparked some creative ideas for using it!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Acorn on Kraft WEB1


It didn’t hit me until just now, but I guess this could be considered a form of “brushless” watercolor, because I didn’t actually use a paintbrush at all on this! *chortle*

There are no mind-blowing techniques involved–just some gold embossing with a bit of spritzing/splashing.  But, it was so relaxing and soothing… just to play… I didn’t know if I was even going to end up with an actual card when I started, LOL!

The video is high speed, set to music; I just left it on while I played with my Stains… :)



Wishing y’all a Happy and peaceful Thanksgiving…

‘Tis The Season: A plethora of ideas…

Tis season grp WEB

One of my favoritest–truly–stampy things to do is take a set and develop a bunch of different ideas with it. These have all been rolling around in my head for ‘Tis The Season and  it was really fun to make ‘em real!  And, I tried to film ‘em in the process.  Well, you know what they say about the road to Hades being paved with good intentions… I won’t tell you about my week, but suffice it to say that there were numerous interruptions to the mojo that ultimately led to me not realizing I hadn’t turned the camera back ON, after each interruption.   Yeaaaaaahhhhh.  In the grand scheme of life, this is nothing, really, but it does make a girl cranky… #cursewords  Keepin’ it real, folks… Just keepin’ it real…



Thanks for giving the video a thumbs’ up on YouTube!   


Tis he knows WEB1

(Not in the video).  This is a speedy quick 4 bar size card (3.5 x 5″); stamp the two sentiments inside a kraft note card, wrap it with twine and Bob’s yer uncle!

Tis he knows WEB2

Perfect for those who are more the “no fuss, no muss” type. ‘Nuff said.

Tis car WEB

I love that little car…. The camera was off on this one…. *sigh*  Stamp with bleed-proof ink, watercolor it, die cut it, white emboss a greeting, and slap it onto a woodgrain card with a messy thread nest and sequins. Swipe some Stickles on there, and call it a day.

Tis lights WEB1

Again, camera was off. But, I love.  LOVE!!!

Tis lights WEB2

The tangle lights were clear embossed over black pigment ink, colored quickly and die cut. Masked off a section on the top panel and sponged ink, allowing it to fade as I moved towards the top. I seem to do a better blending job on Bristol than Neenah Solar White. Hard to tell in the pic, but I brushed a little Wink of Stella over the tops of the bulbs for some subtle sparkle.   Did I say I love this card?


Tis sweater WEB

Camera was on for this one. *insert rolling eyeballs* I love making my own tags with the WRMK Angle Corner Chomper; no limits to size, and the thing can punch through multiple layers of card stock at the same time! *fist pump*  Wish I were skinny enough to fit into that sweater… *sigh*

Tis Santa WEB

In the video. I forced myself to use some Lawn Fawn patterned paper I’ve been hoarding….

Tis ginger WEB1

Yay! Ginger made the video! I think the glittery stripes helped set the whole thing off…

Hope these inspire!
