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!

Thanks for stopping by!

Taco Tuesday… and then some!

I’m popping in today to share a couple more cards I made with the NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! Cannot get enough of these letters– endless possibilities! ❀This first card, I made with the new Classic Block Alpha by Julie Ebersole . I am a big fan of clean fonts and this bold one is a winner. So I went Taco Tuesday all over this. My friend will get a laugh for sure! πŸ™‚ I created the background simply by stamping the dashed line from the Plaid Maker set repeatedly in different colors on the panel. I just used a stamp block, so it’s likely far from perfect, but it was fun to make. πŸ™‚

I added some stitching to a few letters for some detail and also to adhere the panel to the card base. Then I glued on a couple of stars and there we have it! Let There Be Tacos!!! I see myself yelling this like Oprah would. haaaa!

Next up, I whipped up this colorful number to thank a friend:

This card I made with the new set calledΒ ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DESIGNER DIES, Block Words by Julie Ebersole.Β  Again, I created the background with theΒ  Plaid Maker stamp set…just one simple stamp can do so many cool patterns. πŸ™‚ The first part of the sentiment is a stamp from the newΒ Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Totally Random Sayings Vol. 2 by Julie Ebersole.

To finish it off, I added some stitched lines with my machine.

So fun! Can’t wait to send these both in the mail!

Check out my previous post using these new goodies HERE. Let your imagination roll and create any sentiment you want…now I want a taco. That’s the downside. LOL!

Ellen Hutson’s New Release!

I’m popping in today to share the fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! So. Many. Cool. Letters! (and lovely flowers!)Gah! I love clean fonts and this release is chock full! Check out this card I made with this fun new set calledΒ ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DESIGNER DIES, Block Words by Julie Ebersole. Julie’s fantastic strikes again! You all have been warned! πŸ™‚

Gah! So fun and easy to use these new little words! I just die cut them and then used some Press N Seal wrap to hold the letters in their places while I added a dab of glue to the back of them. Then when you adhere them down, the spacing is all correct and they are ready to roll!!

I used Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick colored Distress Oxide ink pads to blend on inks over the super awesome Altenew Stencil called Cube Builder. I also used Mustard Seed Distress Ink. πŸ™‚ My geometric loving self has been wanting this stencil since I first laid eyes on it. I mean, how cool is that?! πŸ™‚

I then had to make another personalized card and the new Classic Block Alpha by Julie Ebersole set makes quick work of that! Such a great blocky/bold font. ❀ ! I combined these letters with the small gingham backdrop from the NEW Plaid Maker stamp set. (<–Fun set! I have three plaids on my desk waiting to be cards! πŸ™‚

To polish it off, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits , some stitching and some scoring! Voila!

So fun! Looking forward to giving this card to a teacher soon! πŸ™‚
