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

Fall Bear Ware!

Today, I’m here to share a fun couple of cards using some Ellen Hutson cuteness! They are not new, by any means, but always fun!

First up, I used Ellen Hutson’s Bear Ware 2 (and coordinating dies HERE) and of course, the original, All Inside with dies HERE! I also used Bear Ware 4 and Bare Ware 4ย dies HERE–I don’t know that I have before? How is that possible?

This little guy is always fun and makes up these sweet little cards to pop in the mail! โค Pies on a head? Why not? He’s fit to be pied. ๐Ÿ™‚

The backgrounds are from the set called Wonky Backdrops. This set is always a winner! ๐Ÿ™‚ย . The sweet little embellishments: Crystal Clear Droplets.

I hadn’t used this little All Inside guy lately, and well, I missed him! Plus, he clearly loves Fall too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up is the cute Halloween one! I couldn’t decide which little accouterments to use from Bear Ware 2, so I used most of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Who doens’t love a purple little kitty cat? ๐Ÿ™‚ย  A Beary Happy Halloween!

I colored all these with a very loose watercolor on Bristol paper using the Karin Markers! The Karin Markers are so fab because they stay nice and boldly/brightly colored. ๐Ÿ™‚
