Essentials by Ellen Release, August 2017

Aug release collage julie

The new release is now LIVE in the store! Yay!!! I have links to each of the sets below that Brandi Kincaid and I have created and this week I’ll be sharing a new card idea each day. :)

I’ll also be doing LIVE video on the Ellen Hutson LLC Facebook Page tomorrow, Aug 7th, at 10 am PDT, sharing the story behind the set I designed.

The new stamps are shown below, with links to them in the shop, should anything suit your fancy. :)



Rustic Botanicals stamps


Rustic Botanicals dies


Plant Lady stamps


Plant Lady dies


Plant Ladies Say stamps


Today’s project is a combination of sets–I love how it all came together!


feat. Plant Ladies Say, Rustic Botanicals, Wonky Backdrops + a combination of various Avery Elle Pigment Inks and Memento Luxe Pigment Inks

I used the MISTI to partially ink the stamps up with one color of pigment ink (always start with the lighter), and then after stamping and cleaning, reapplied a darker shade of pigment ink and stamped again.   I love blending and stamping inks this way because there is no risk of cross-contaminating my ink pads and it gives such a great element of depth and dimension to solid stamps. Added NUVO Crystal Drops in Ebony Black to accent.

Do you garden?  I have a black thumb… The only way I can keep a garden alive is to “plant it” on paaaay-paaaah!  LOL!

Thanks for popping over here today!
