Ellen Hutson’s New August Release!

Today, there is a fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson!The Leading Ladies are back and busier than ever! I always enjoy all the little stamps Brandi Kincaid includes in her sets, so I ran with those! πŸ™‚

You can check out the entire release: Essentials By Ellen August 2018 Complete Release!

I first peeled off these cute little supplies from the newly released: Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Teacher Lady By Brandi Kincaid. There are coordinating dies HERE. I stamped them all in black. (This seems to be my current *thing*. Haaa!) After that, I cut some strips to stitch on and added the Alphas from the previously released: Classic Block Alpha. ❀ these alphas!

I thought this would be fun for a teacher or a student! Or even for administration! πŸ™‚

And then, I focused on the light bulb! I colored these very loosely with Copics for a different look.

I really enjoy all the fonts on these new sets! The handwriting mixed with straight text: ❀ !

This next card, I almost just tossed out. The next morning, I decided it was not as bad as I had thought the night before. Do you do this? It’s so silly! πŸ™‚

For this card, I used both new Leading Lady sets, getting the clipboard from the new: Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Medical Lady By Brandi Kincaid. The coordinating dies I used are HERE. I also used the previously released: Abstract Paint Strokes.

When I finished this next card, it didn’t feel so cheerful. But I decided that it would actually be a pretty good man card to send. So I kept this one too. πŸ™‚ This one uses more of the Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Leading Ladies – Medical Lady By Brandi Kincaid set.

Loving that “feel better” sentiment–great size, great writing! πŸ™‚ I also used a tag from the previously released: Concertina Tag.

I kept these cards pretty simple and enjoy how they turned out in the end. These new Leading Ladies are fun and quite a delight to have added to my collection! The actual ladies are sure to meet on a card here really soon! πŸ˜‰ There’s a whole party going to happen!

Hope the rest of your weekend is great! Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you to Ellen Hutson for including me in their new release fun today!

Be sure to check out all the fun new products released today over at Ellen Hutson HERE! Have a great Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care– Jill πŸ™‚

Beary Best!

Good Morning! Happy Saturday!

Today, I am sharing this card I finished late last night using Essentials by Ellen Bear Ware 2. How cute is this little Snowman Bear? Gah! (I thought I had the dies, but I guess not? Ha! So I fussy cut the snowbears out. πŸ˜‰ )

I colored them last night with Copic Markers for The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Challenge and then popped them on a card. (Check out that Challenge HERE! Kathy is FABULOUS!)

Let me just say, I think this is the most purple I have used in years! LOL! Also, this card is BUSY! It’s a little too busy for me, but I still think it’s too cute to not share. πŸ™‚

For the sentiment on this card, I used EH’s Warm Fuzzies stamp set. (I heat embossed it.) That set is a super fave of mine! ❀

For the background of this card, I used my friend Miriam’s Neat & Tangle stencil, Rice Paddies. There is so much detail on that stencil, it can be used for awesome things! πŸ™‚ I used Wilted Violet Oxide ink. I also stamped the little dots from EH’s Abstract Paint Strokes.

To finish off this card, I added some Neat & Tangled sequins (Thank you, N&T!) and some stitching.

I used all the purples and violets to participate in Ellen Hutson’s Pinsight Challenge! It’s been awhile, so I am happy to participate again–dig the EH Challenges!

Check it out and join in! I think there is still a bunch of time to play along! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend! Jill πŸ™‚

Essentials by Ellen Blog Hop! :)

I am SO excited to share a couple of cards I made for the new Essentials by Ellen Release! What an awesomely fun opportunity to help celebrate another fabulous release! Hooray! Let’s check out some cards! πŸ™‚

This first card is made with the newΒ Abstract Paint Strokes by Julie Ebersole AND this new sentiment from Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole. That Julie!! Good gravy–always knocking it out of the park! πŸ™‚

How fun is this?! I stamped the one dotty dash stamp repeatedly with a bunch of different inks.Β  This went remarkably quick, once I figured out what I wanted to do! πŸ™‚ It almost looks like one full background stamp, doesn’t it? Love a rainbow! πŸ™‚

To finish off this card, I just white heat embossed the sentiment, added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and a few stitched lines. πŸ™‚

The second card I made to celebrate, uses the sameΒ Abstract Paint Strokes set. I thought it would be fun to make some mushrooms! That was the first thing I thought of when I saw these round stamps. πŸ™‚

I finished this card off with some enamel dots and some stitches. I enjoy this card’s simplicity and pops of yellow. πŸ™‚ If I made it again, I’d do some extra shadow stamping on the ‘shrooms to give them a little more gusto. Stamp and learn, huh? πŸ˜‰

Here’s a better look at these sets. You can click on them to go directly to Ellen Hutson’sΒ website.

Sending envelopes full of gratitude to everyone at Ellen Hutson for having me along again!! This is an awesome release with a crazy amount of possibilities! I sure love that, and have greatly enjoyed working with all these new goodies! πŸ™‚

This first card I made with the new: Leading Ladies – Photo Lady by Brandi Kincaid

This sentiment is from: Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole. (awesome set!)

(This name includes “Volume 1″….this may be insinuating there is going to be another volume? Oh goodness. Note to self: Start saving! πŸ™‚ )

How much do I love this lady’s shoes?! A LOT! Such fun!! I colored all these ladies shoes with Copics. I added some black and white striped washi to the card base and some stitching to the panel to complete the card. This is a fave!! πŸ™‚

For my next card, I used: Abstract Paint Strokes by Julie Ebersole.Β 

This set is CRAZY versatile!! I love these kind of sets because the possibilities are endless!

This sentiment is also from: Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 by Julie Ebersole.

I thought this was a fun take on a holiday card of trees! Paint Strokes to trees! Fun fun!

I stamped these with various Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts inks, heat embossed the sentiment and added a couple more gray cardstock strips. I finished it all off with some stitching and white gel pen details. πŸ™‚

Here’s a better look at the whole set: Abstract Paint Strokes by Julie Ebersole
