May the Fork Be With You!

In case you missed it, Ellen Hutson has a new Release available now and it’s  delightful,  as  always! I have been having a lot of fun with it. These simple little cards are fun to make. And as simple as they are, they tend to take awhile to design. 😄 But to be fair, I am not the fastest at much of anything. 😉

Once again, I used these new sets for this card: Bear Ware Dress Up Sentiments, Bear Ware Dress Up 2, Bear Ware Dress Up 2 dies, Bear Ware Dress Up 1, and Bear Ware Dress Up 1 DiesI colored everything with Copic Markers. And of course, the All Inside bear to hold all the forks together. ❤

I also used the previously release Bear Ware 4, Bear Ware 4 Dies and the Wonky Backdrops.

I cannot wait to send this to a friend on May 4th!! Tooooo Funny!!

I hope you also got a laugh out of this one… check out my other card from this past weekend HERE. I love puns. Just so fun!!

Check out the whole NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson!!

Thanks for stopping by–have a great week!!

Take care–Jill 🙂

MORE Bear Ware from Ellen Hutson!

Hooray!! Ellen Hutson has a new Release available now and its packed with fun–and BEAR WARE!!

I used three new sets for this card: Bear Ware Dress Up Sentiments, Bear Ware Dress Up 1, and Bear Ware Dress Up 1 DiesI colored everything with Copic Markers. GAH!! I super duper love when I can add anything else to my All Inside bear to hold! Another stellar job, Julie Ebersole!!

Anytime I can make a card for our son, I jump at the opportunity. He still appreciates a cute card, so this is perfect and he always gives me an eye roll at a good pun. Which you know is “I like this a lot but I cannot admit that to you, Mom”. 😂

So so fun!! I cannot wait to peruse the rest of the release too and make more cards with all the things! I will be back again soon with more and then again later in the month. I can’t wait!!

Check out the whole NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson!!

Thanks for stopping by–have a great weekend!!

Take care–Jill 🙂

Concord & 9th Guest: Out of This World & Magical Day! + GIVEAWAY

Happy Friday once again! This week was a very long month and so I am happy to be here to share some fun! It’s my last week of sharing Concord & 9th Dream Big Release as a Guest Designer for February and their Feature Friday series, but I have so enjoyed these weeks together. Also, if you haven’t previously, be sure to check out Emily and Meghann’s projects on the Concord & 9th Blog HERE too.

**See details at the of this post about a $25 Concord & 9th Gift Card giveaway!!!**

First up, this card is made with the Out of this World Bundle. I also added some of the Concord & 9th Rainbow Glitter Paper Pack–hellllllllo sparkle! I super adore the font used for these sentiments too–perfect! I can’t wait to give our son this card. 🙂

I used lots of the Concord & 9th Assorted Color Cardstock Pack and then a handful of the Concord & 9th Mini Ink Cubes for this background. I love the how this card turned out using the small Turnabout in the background–these mini turnabouts are my new fave for sure!

Next up, I used the Magical Day Bundle to create this dreamy little number. I just had to use the little tiny rainbows, so I created a background with those.

All these dies are included in the Magical Day Dies and all the little bits come together to add all these fun details! The banner is also created with a die in the set and comes together 1-2-3!

Eeeep! Too fun!

Lastly, like the little rainbow background, I had to use the little rainbow die in Magical Day Dies to create some glittertastic rainbows using the Concord & 9th Rainbow Glitter Paper Pack.

And the little clouds? Gah! 🙂

You can find the whole release of new Concord & 9th products HERE. And if you’re a bundle person, get it all HERE. Here are the specific links for ease. I’ve included last two weeks supplies too:

Concord & 9th Guest: Rainbows and Visions!

Happy Friday! I’m happy to be back sharing more of Concord & 9th Dream Big Release as a Guest Designer for February and their Feature Friday series! Be sure to check out Emily and Meghann’s projects on the Concord & 9th Blog HERE too. Did you see their projects last week? GO SEE!!! So fun! 🙂

My cards today feature the new Make Some Noise Bundle and the Rainbow Card Front Die. 

I first used just the Make Some Noise Stamp Set to create this card–Using basically every Concord & 9th Mini Ink Cube! Ha!! But seriously, I about did. 😂 If you look at the stamps, you can see how easy this is. Because the letters are so spread out, you can ink up different letters fairly easily. I was thinking I’d just use a few, but then went all out. 🙂

This next card uses the Rainbow Card Front Die which creates multiples so easily if you choose to use different colored rays for the rainbow–because you get five!

I love the Concord & 9th Assorted Color Cardstock Pack for the awesome colors–they seem to all work together too. ❤ that! The sentiments are all from the Delicate Blossoms stamp set and work swimmingly for basically any card type, in my mind.

So fun–I just changed the direction, order, and shape of the rainbow for all the different cards. Do you have a fave? I like the Just Saying Hello card maybe best…?

Love these and can’t wait to mail them all out! 🙂

Next up, I had some silly fun–I had to get this out of my head because “this guy’s got some sweet moves”! Does anyone watch It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia? I remember Dee saying this in an episode and now its a big joke between my husband and me every time we see one of these blow–up dancing guys! Anywho–he’s made with the Make Some Noise Dies.

It’s a pretty silly card, but I just had to make it. I couldn’t get that guy out of my head when I saw these dies. Plus, it’s fun to stretch those supplies right? 🙂

The sentiment I found to be perfectly fun for this card too. It’s again from the Make Some Noise Stamp Set. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that knows what this blow up guys are! ha!

Lastly, as I was die cutting things with the Make Some Noise Dies, I saw snails!! So I created this lovey card too. ❤

I thought this would be fun to send to some friends. Snails! With funky hair! 😄

And always the googley eyes!

Hope you all enjoyed my little trip off the rails using the products this week! 😊

You can find the whole release of new Concord & 9th products HERE. And if you’re a bundle person, get it all HERE. Here are the specific links for ease. I’ve included last week’s too:

Concord & 9th Guest: Dream Big!

Happy Friday! Today is my first day of sharing Concord & 9th Dream Big Release as a Guest Designer for February and their Feature Friday series! Be sure to check out Emily and Meghann’s projects on the Concord & 9th Blog HERE too. How fun to be over there with these two fabulous creators! 🙂

Let’s get this party started!

All my cards today feature the new Delicate Blossoms Bundle. Oh goodness–buckle up for the fun release peeps! The flowers are from the Delicate Blossoms Dies and the sentiment is from Delicate Blossoms stamp set.

I thought this would be fun to create a rainbow of flowers! I die cut them all out and added them a embossed panel before stitching them all on. I used the “Thank You So Much” sentiment. Though I stamped many because that little set (Delicate Blossoms stamp set) packs a punch with the perfect group of sentiments. (And I love the simple font!).

Oh goodness too fun! (These cardstock colors are: Honeysuckle, Sorbet, Buttercup, Sprout, Aqua Sky and Peacock.)

I then really wanted to use the Congrats sentiment die from the Delicate Blossoms Dies, so I did so with the simple inlay technique. It works swimmingly to get the character spacing perfect!

I added these fun new Buttercup Enamel Dots from the Everyday Enamel Dots Bundle. They are perfection for these sweet little flowers.

I added some embossed lines and some stitching and voila! Done! I love how simple the design–these products make some sweet sweet cards. 🙂 (These cardstock colors are: Sorbet, Sprout, Aqua Sky and Peacock. 

You’ll also have to check out the larger die in the Delicate Blossoms Dies. I have that all cut and pieced on my desk, but I can’t decide how to use it yet. 🙂 We will see what shakes out someday here soon!

You can find the whole lot of new Concord & 9th products HERE. And if you’re a bundle person, get it all HERE. Here are the specific links for ease:

I hope you have been inspired to have some fun with these new products! Please be sure to check out the post on Concord & 9th’s Blog today to see both Emily and Meghann’s projects too!

Thanks so much for stopping by! And HUGE Crafty Thanks to Concord & 9th for having me along!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Ellen Hutson’s: 12 Days of TAGS!

Today, I am helping to celebrate the 12 Days of Tags with Ellen Hutson and it couldn’t be more fun! I love holiday tags! Well, full disclosure, I just love tags period. 🙂

(If you are looking for my Taylored Expressions post, please click HERE.😊 )

As I’m sure you’ve gathered, I naturally gravitate to using Julie Ebersole’s  Sweet Surprises set  and (Sweet Surprises Dies). I colored the little bear with Copic Markers and then die cut him and his candy cane with the Sweet Surprises Dies. He needed someone to look after him, so I used original Bear from  All Inside (All Inside Dies) and all his accoutrements from Bear Ware 2.

This sentiment is from Tag It-Christmas and the tag I used is from the awesome  Farmhouse Tags set. I created the polka dot background using the Wonky Backgrounds set (essential!) and used strips of scrap cardstock to create the stripes. I think this turned out oh so cute! These little bears get me every time!

(This little bear is the teeny tiny version of All Inside (All Inside Dies).)

Here are all the details from Ellen Hutson to get in on the fun:

This year, we asked 24 talented designers to create a tag inspired by a favorite Christmas carol. Their clever – and sometimes humorous – tags are sure to inspire. But their awesome tags are only half the fun; we always look forward to seeing what our designers’ tags inspire YOU to make, and we welcome you to join the fun by creating tags inspired by each day’s song (with a chance to win a shopping spree at ellenhutson.com to boot)!

Here’s a link to the whole  Winter Release from Ellen Hutson.

One quick list of just the Ellen Hutson products I used today:

Thanks so much for joining me here today. Be sure to check out the Ellen Hutson Blog today to see what Amy made! 🙂 I can’t wait to see Amy’s tag (sure to be super fun!) and what everyone creates! Thank you to Ellen Hutson for having me along today–TOO fun!

Take care–Jill 🙂

More Fun with Ellen Hutson’s Winter Release!

In case you missed it, Ellen Hutson has a new Winter Release available now and its packed with holiday and winter goodness! So fun! Hopefully you have seen some projects out and about on the interwebs.

Today, I’m sharing a card using the new Sending Holiday Cheer  set by Julie Ebersole and Holly Jolly Christmas by Julie, as well as the previously released A2 Piercing Plate 2. The Fa La La & Tree are from the Holly Jolly set–stamp and Holly Jolly Die.

How FUNNY is THIS? The snarky sentiment is from Sending Holiday Cheer— I kinda wanted to cross out the “Just Kidding” to make it even more snarky, but I refrained. 😂

I used the A2 Piercing Plate 2 to create the background about the scored lines, giving it some subtle texture. Then I stamped the stars with Golden Glitz Delicata. To finish it off, I added some zig zag stitching.

I’m looking forward to making more with the new Winter Release from Ellen Hutson!  I’ve been under the weather here myself, but look forward to getting back to all the things ASAP!

*Please note that the gift is automatically added to qualifying orders/while supplies last.

If you missed my previous post from last week, check that out HERE because it is another funny sweet card there.

One quick clickable shopping list all together for the Winter Release from Ellen Hutson from both my projects:

Thanks for popping in again!

Take care–Jill 🙂
