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 newย Sending Holiday Cheerย  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. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I used the A2 Piercing Plate 2 to create the background about the scored lines, giving it some subtle texture. Then Iย 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! ย 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:

Ellen Hutson’s Winter Release!

Today the Winter Release from Ellen Hutson is available and it is SNOW much fun! There is a little something for everyone to create with in this one, for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚ And there is a FREE GIFT with qualifying purchases–see the end of my post for details.

Naturally, the first set I had to use was Julie Ebersoleโ€™s new Sweetย Surprises setย  and (Sweet Surprises Dies). Because: Bear. I stamped and die cut a bunch of these sweet surprises out to color with Copic Markers. I then die cut them all with the Sweet Surprises Dies.

Of course, once I saw this sentiment in the Sending Holiday Cheer by Julie Ebersole (Julie: Again!! ๐Ÿค)ย  stamp set, well, that was that. Haaaaa! The little bear was going in upside down! Poor guy ๐Ÿ˜Š–But this is my current mood too, so it’s perfect! Double ha!! It’s fine. We’re Fine. Everything is fine. ๐Ÿ˜‚

(This little bear is the teeny tiny version of my little buddy from one of my all time faves: All Inside (All Inside Dies).)

I created the tone on tone snowflake background with the new die set called Snowflake Die set (go figure ๐Ÿ˜Š) I have found that I am a bit of a snowflake snob over the years… that one is too pointy, that one is too intricate, etc. etc…. BUT THESE– โคโคโค!! I love their simplistic shapes and that they are all the same. Which I know is counterintuitive to the nature of a snowflake and all, but there is something about having them all be the same and available in different sizes that is VERY appealing. Plus, I like their rounded tips. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I added some stitching to those and wammo! All set!

I am definitely enjoying this whole new Winter Release from Ellen Hutson and I hope you are too! I will be back this weekend with more to share! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t wait! I need a week off to create with these fun goodies. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another WCMD card using the new Ellen Hutson set!

I hope you didn’t miss World Card Making Day this past Saturday! I Ellen Hutson has thisย  ย super newย  setย  called Bear Ware Grand Tour andย  more!This card of course uses the new Bear Ware Grand Tour set (and coordinating dies). And I also used the new Planet Surface dies to create the little world he is sitting on.

Ciao bella! This time, he is in Italy, or just come from there, maybe more likely. ๐Ÿ™‚ So fun! ๐Ÿ™‚ He brought his pasta along too… teehee!

Once again, I colored everything with Copic Markers and die cut them all out. This time he had to hold the Leaning Tower of Pisa and his little camera! ๐Ÿ™‚ I die cut the Planet Surface and then used the A2 Piercing Plate 2 to give it some extra texture. I created the background using the previously releasedย Nordic Cross Cover and added some stitching to finish off the fun! Ciao ciao ciao! โค

You can find the new World Card Making Day release HERE with the Bear Ware Grand Tour and Planet Surface dies available.

If you missed my post on Saturday, please find that one HERE!ย  Too cute! ๐Ÿ™‚

Celebrating WCMD with Ellen Hutson today!

Today is World Card Making Day! I don’t know about you, but this is a fun day! I seem to always be busy doing something that doesn’t involve cardmaking, but I’m hoping 2021 is my year to celebrate in true form! And let me tell you,ย Ellen Hutson has just the set to enjoy a smile today! I ADORE this set! ๐Ÿ™‚And on with my card! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the new set released today for WCMD: Bear Ware Grand Tour set (and coordinating dies). Gahhhhhh! I squealed when I opened my mailbox and then yelped when I opened the envelope. It is TOO MUCH! ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿค I was so excited. First up, a little buddy for All Inside (and All Inside Dies) and then he (and really THEY) have all these new things to use and hold. I love!

I colored everything with Copic Markers and die cut them all out. I love to have a little pile of fun to choose from in order to create. I kept everything else very simple blending on a faint background after masking and then added a few splats. I mean, he is holding the London Tower and the Eifel Tower, like stuffies. TOO cute and fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be back again in a couple days with another card featuring this new Bear Ware Grand Tour set AND other new set Planet Surface and the previously released Nordic Cross Cover and A2 Piercing Plate 2. If I’m super lucky, I’ll be back again before that with another card I made today! ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s hope the day is a fun one to create for everyone. โค

You can find the new World Card Making Day release HERE with the Bear Ware Grand Tour and Planet Surface dies available. I’m off to the shop the 20% off sale at Ellen Hutson myself HERE!

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great day making!

More Projects with the EH FALL Release!

I’m back using some more Fall goodness from the Ellen Hutson Fall Release! I hope you have had a chance to see all the projects on Instagram and the Ellen Hutson blog using the new Fall Release! I have enjoyed them and need to peruse more because there are so many I have yet to see, I’m sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

First up today, I am sharing these cards using the new Pumpkin Season (and dies). I want to decorate with all the pumpkin things NOW! But it is still 90 degrees here today…. seems wrong. Ha! So I will make cards instead. These are very basic, but I enjoy that sometimes so I can make more of them and send them out. ๐Ÿ™‚

For the background, I used the new Nordic Cross Cover and I’m a super fan of this die. I can safely say I will be using it a lot. A LOT.

The Pumpkin Season set comes with both a solid pumpkin stamp and an outline pumpkin stamp. I actually used both for these pumpkins before die cutting them out after. A few different shades of colors and done. ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I have these fun little treats using the new Bat Hugger die. I wanted to make a candy corn bat with little black feet, so this was fun. I also used the new A2 Piercing Plate to give everything a little extra texture.

AND naturally, some googley eyes! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am planning to make a banner using the bats, so hopefully I get that done before Halloween and can come back and share. ๐Ÿ™‚

And lastly, I have some Holiday Treats! I think these would be super fun in all the colors, so that’ll be another one I hope to get to before Christmas–we’ll see! ๐Ÿ™‚ These are super easy to make with the new Pyramid Box Die. Two passes through the die cut machine and quick assembly to hold treats, cash (who doesn’t love cash in a pyramid?) and so much more. Or just to decorate. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have enjoy the new Fall Release from Ellen Hutson too! It’s always such a fun one! Check it the entire Ellen Hutson Fall Release HERE!

OH and if you missed my post last week–check that out HERE. A few more Halloween projects–too fun!!

Thanks again for stopping by!

Ellen Hutson New FALL Release!

Exciting day today over at Ellen Hutson–It’s the EBE Fall Release! I loooooooooooooooove this release every year and I’m so glad to be able to share little bits of it with you. AND before I forget, I’ll be back with some other projects in a few days… Two words: Holiday Trees. Yup. With the Fall Release! ๐Ÿ™‚

This release is full of super fun goodies designed by both Julie and Heather, so you know it is trouble! The GOOD kind, of course. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค

First up, I had to use two new sets and one of my favorite all time EH little guys. ๐Ÿ™‚ This card uses the new sweet little Witch from Halloween Boo-quet (and dies) and Halloween Treat Bags, as well as the long time fave All Insideย  (and dies HERE). They are all besties!

For the bold star background, I used the new Essential Stars and new A2 Piercing Plate 2. Which is a fun one for subtle texture. <3!

I colored them with Copic Markers and gave a little scoring and stitching to the background. I wanted to give a few ink splatters too, but I adhered everyone in first and there was no going back! Ha! I do this often–anyone else? ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I have fun making these tags and of course, as usual, I wish I had a dozen more! These use the new Halloween Treat Bags again and also the new Tag It-Halloween. These NEW Farmhouse Tags are extra fun and come in a die set of three different shapes. THESE you NEED! Just sayin.

Oh my goodness–I love tags. I love fall. and I love little treat bags! So this is the best!

This little ghost above is definitely my fave! I love a smiling ghost. ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ป

And there are some fun treat wrappers ahead too. I will post more about them in a few days, but here’s a little sneak! I plan to also make a Halloween banner with them! The die is called Bat Hugger.

Maybe one more card to share today? Ok. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one uses the new Halloween Boo-quet again, with a blended background of Distress Oxide Inks: Hickory Smoke, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Spun Sugar and Fossilized Amber. I decided to use all the individual dies in the Halloween Boo-quet die set and create a fun little spray. These ghosts are too cute–and smiling!!

I also used the new Tiny Stars Background and backed it all up with some Silver Glitter cardstock. I left some of the little stars in, which was a fun little blip because my die cutting plates are so warped, it missed the center of the die. I took advantage ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also accidentally adhered her broom upside down, so apparently she is ready to start cleaning vs. flying? haaa! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh it’s all too cute, “upside down” or not. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก

I hope you enjoy the new Fall Release from Ellen Hutson as much as I do! I’ll be back again in a few days with the rest of my treats AND some Holiday Trees! That’s right, Holiday Trees with the Ellen Hutson Fall Release. ๐Ÿ™‚

You can find the entire Ellen Hutson Fall Release HERE! Happy shopping! ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas In July from Scrapbook.com!

Happy Weekend to everyone! Hope you are enjoying some time to relax and maybe make something this weekend? I have been busy celebrating Christmas in July with some fun goodies from Scrapbook.com! I am always happy to have things done and ready and ahead of time and Holiday cards ready to go in July–the best! There is a BIG Christmas In July sale HERE! Be sure to hop over there ASAP so you don’t miss it!

I worked with lots of fun products and new to me products from Scrapbook.com and I’m here today to share the scoop. Let’s get to some cards, shall we? For these first two cards, I used the Slimline Christmas Foliage and Merry Sentiments. I also had fun using the Pops of Color to create the dimensional dots.

This Slimline Christmas Foliage stamp is FULL Slimline Size, but I thought it would be fun to stretch it, literally, and instead get two 4 bar cards out of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

First, I stamped the using different ink colors and after I used the Pops of Color, letting them dry before moving forward.

I stamped the Merry Sentiments and added them to another backer piece before stitching them together.

These were fun to make!

Next up, I wanted to use the Fa La La in the Slimline Christmas Foliage stamp set and I thought a little rainbow action for the holidays would be fun.

I inked these up using different colors to create an ombre rainbow look.

I also used the Mint Tape here. This tape is intended as a tool for project making, as it is a low tack tape that won’t stick when you don’t want it to. However, I โค the color, so I used it on this card! Shhhhhh don’t tell anyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

I finished them both off with a little scoring and stitching. These are perfect for mailing because they are flat and easy to create in multiples.

Last up, I thought it would be cool to make a Christmas card that we all know is only for this season–dating it with the current year! So easy to do. This would be even better if you added a cutie pic of your kid(s) or family.

For this card, I used the Snowflakes Stencil andย Classic Type: Numbers and Characters. I die cut these from the Christmas Smooth Cardstock Paper and layered them on with foam tape.

To ink on the Snowflakes Stencil, I used the Ink Blending Tool with Domed Foam. This is my new favorite little tool–love the dome shape! I added some white dots with a white gel pen for extra fun before stitching it all together to finish it off. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and the Merry Christmas is from the Merry Sentiments. I got a lot of use out of this small set!

I love having a stack of cards ready to go! Hopefully you are inspired to get your holiday cards started too and take advantage of the great sale at Scrapbook.com NOW!

Here are direct links to items I used to create these cards–check them out at Scrapbook.com:

Thanks to Scrapbook.com for having me along to celebrate this “Holiday Season”. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Such fun!

Summer of Stamping from Ellen Hutson

I’m popping in today to share another card using the new Summer of Stamping set It’s a Jungle ย  from Ellen Hutson. I always enjoy the EH Summer of Stamping, and this year is no exception. You can find all the New Ellen Hutson Summer of Stamping Release HERE.

My card here today uses the new It’s a Jungle and It’s a Jungle dies to create this card. I really wanted to use the sentiment in the set that says “The Tribe Has Spoken”, so I’m going to need to do that one soon too. ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I masked off this area and blended on Distress Oxide inks. I love how smooth those backgrounds always turn out! I stamped and colored a bunch of the different elements in this set and then just tinkered around layouts using different ones. The perk of this is that I still have pieces to use that are already colored. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tropic it like it’s hot–Too funny! I finished this card off with a few splatters of paint and some simple stitching and voila! This is a fun one to pop in the mail to a friend.

**If you missed my post earlier this week, be sure to click HERE and pop over to see THOSE cards. Lots more to see there too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the link to the full New Ellen Hutson Release for the Summer of Stamping HERE. Quick recap of the goodies I used this week–all with direct links below to find with ease:

Be sure to also check out the Ellen Hutson blog this week, as I am sure they are sharing lots more goodness there!

Thanks again for stopping by! It’s been great fun to share this release with you and another ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›ย  shout out to Team Ellen Hutson for having me along– Thank you!! โค

Enjoy the Ellen Hutson Summer of Stamping!

Summer of Stamping: Ellen Hutson New Release!

Exciting day today over at Ellen Hutson–It’s a new week in the Summer of Stamping! Just fun summery goodness available now! And I made a few cards to kick things off.ย  You can find all the new (and goodies released last week!) in the New Ellen Hutson Summer of Stamping Release HERE.

Let’s get to some projects, shall we?! First, let’s start with this fun little number made with the new Aloha set (and Aloha dies) and the new Tilt ‘N Rock dieย interactive die set, all of course by the talented Julie Ebersole. Julie strikes again! ๐Ÿ™‚

I toyed around with using all the of the fun little scenic pieces in this set and then ended up with this simple design to keep the focus on her little sashaying moves! ha! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s a little video of her shaking her grass skirt on my Instagram post: jilldhawkins .

I created the background using different Distress Oxide inks after masking off a rectangle to work within using Post It notes.

Here’s two little snap shots of how she looks in motion with the Tilt ‘N Rock die.

So fun and SUPER easy to make. You just need a penny along with the Tilt ‘N Rock die.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I used the New Mondo Anthurium set (and Mondo Anthurium die) to create a few cards. I actually made five of them, but I figured you all are picking up what I’m putting down with seeing three of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

First I cut strips of brightly colored cardstock and pieced those all together. I was going to just mix up the order of the rows all different, but I decided to keep them all the same to ease our eyes when they are together. ๐Ÿ™‚

This first one, I stamped the Mondo Anthuriumย and white heat embossed with before die cutting it out. I added some stitching to the base panel and then lined up the Mondo Anthuriumย to match an adhered it with foam tape. I finished it all off with some clear bits from my stash and a simple Mahalo!

This one might be my favorite!

Next, I kept things a little more simple adding in the Hero Arts Infinity Nesting Postage Stamp dies to create panels.

I added some embossed lines to the card base and some stitching to the panels and done! ๐Ÿ™‚

Such fun and these cards make me feel like I am vacationing amongst the tropical leaves of Hawaii! If only. โค

Here’s the link to the full New Ellen Hutson Release for the Summer of Stamping HERE. Quick recap of the goodies I used–all with direct links below if you want to find for yourself:

Be sure to also check out the Ellen Hutson blog today–sure to be lots of fun there! And ALSO–today is the last day to get the fun freebie! Check this out! This little Trippin’ Set is soooo cute! I need it too! ๐Ÿ™‚
