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™‚

Miss You!

Happy Weekend! Popping in super duper quick to share this fun card I made using the images from the Lawn Fawn/Ellen Hutson S’more the Merrier set that my friend Chari (Thank you, Chari! โค ) sent me to color for The Daily Marker 30 Day! We had a small gang of some coloring friends and we all stamped and swapped images to color throughout the month of July. I will have to post all the cards that came of the month on my blog sometime soon. It was so fun and a great way to stretch myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway…on with the card….

I blended on several different Distress Inks over the Taylored Expressions Circle Masking Stencil (HERE) and then added the images I fussy cut and colored with Copic Markers. I think it’s safe to say I never made a background like this and it was fun to make. Room to improve, but when isn’t there? ๐Ÿ™‚

Gah!! How cute are these little critters!? I used a much older sentiment set from Lawn Fawn for the speech bubble. You can find this cutie Lawn Fawn/Ellen Hutson S’more the Merrier set over at Ellen Hutson HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you to my friends Alyssa, Caren, Chari, Jen, Latisha and Lori for a FUN month of virtual crafting—coloring together from afar! โค

Take care– Jill ๐Ÿ™‚

Ellen Hutson FUN and SALE!

Happy Friday! Are you all ready to celebrate the 4th? I have some work to do this morning and then onward. Albeit much different from any year prior, it’s still a weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to share that there a great SALEย over at Ellen Hutson this weekend:

Perfect timing because I have this plethora of cards to share with you today. They are all in the theme of making a card set, and these two stamps sets from EH are my go to for this. There is something very satisfying about just stamping your little heart out for a couple hours and creating a stack of cards, is there?

The images are from Ellen Hutson’s Everyday Doodles by Julie Ebersole and I adore this set!! ๐Ÿ™‚ The little sentiments that accompany them are from the set Everyday Punnies by Julie Ebersole. And with a sale, you can get both! ๐Ÿ™‚ shhhhh!

I’m going to share a bunch of pics! Feel free to scroll fast if you haven’t seen enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

This coffee cup is everything! ๐Ÿ™‚

And the camera? โค oh snap! โค it!!!

I thought I would make a sweet apple card before making the funny ones! ๐Ÿ™‚

This sentiment is one of my faves in the set because it is OH SO TRUE! ๐Ÿ™‚

And of course, this sentiment IS my fave in the Everyday Punnies set. It makes me laugh every time I read it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mint Chocolate Chip anyone?

And celery coffee cups? Yes please! ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you have enjoyed these cards using the Ellen Hutson’s Everyday Doodles by Julie Ebersole and Everyday Punnies by Julie Ebersole as much as I enjoyed making them all and mailing them! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s the thing: I already mailed most of them! Who am I? ๐Ÿ™‚

** Be sure to hit up the SALE over at Ellen Hutson now before your wishlist is snagged by someone else! 20% off is fun stuff! Be sure to use the code when you check out–you can hop over by clicking HERE >> Ellen Hutson.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ I may have ordered already myself. Allegedly. ๐Ÿ™‚ shhhhh!

Have a great weekend–and Happy 4th, USA friends!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some EH Fun!

Happy Friday! I thought I’d just share a few cards I made recently, all in one post. I stamped this little apple from Ellen Hutson’s Everyday Doodles by Julie Ebersole (and sentiment from Everyday Punnies) and colored it in many moons ago with some Zig Clean Color watercolor markers. I usually use these markers on Bristol Paper.

This sentiment completely cracks me up!

Very simple to create. Between the font and the simplicity, I โค it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I used Ellen Hutson’s Conductor of Light set that I recently acquired from a friend. It was like Christmas in March! ๐Ÿ™‚

Again, super simple, but effective. I wanted a couple of cards to mail over to school to say Thank You and to keep on keepin’ on! ๐Ÿ™‚

And then I made one in blue, because that is my son’s school’s color!ย  Turned out fun too!

I thinkย  this sentiment is perfectly fitting for these times.

So there you have it…some VERY quick and simple cards to get you going and pop some cards in the mail this coming week. (These cards are all 4 bar.) I find that the simple cards are often delightful and make it doable to get cards in the mail. โค I think I’ve about seven dozen during this odd, odd time. Hoping it brings some smiles.

Here’s all the Ellen Hutson products and links again:

New Release from Ellen Hutson!

Happy Sunday! I’m here today to share a fun new release from Ellen Hutson!ย  I am so excited to be a part of sharing a couple of these great new sets! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this first card, I used the super fun new set called Up in the Air by Brandi Kincaid (and the coordinating dies HERE).

I colored everything with Copic Markers. I also masked off the clouds and blended on the sky colors. I think this set is so fun and unique!! I have another card I hope to finish tonight and share soon!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up, I used the sweet new Be The Change by Brandi Kincaid and the coordinating dies HERE.

I thought these fun and whimsy detailed butterflies would look fantastic in black and white, but I wanted to add a lot of color. So I stamped all the butterflies and masked them off before blending on lots of Distress Inks. My masks were not cut perfect, but I like that “casual” look.
The B & W butterflies really POP in the bright colors!
Such unique sentiments too!
I added a a bit of paint splatter and stitching to each card too. ๐Ÿ™‚
For the next two cards, I accompanied the butterflies with sentiments from the Crafty Ladies Say set.
You Got This!
Same with this next card…
High Five!
I had a lot of fun making this card set and I love how bright all the cards turned out!

So fun!ย Here are all the products that are available now and links again:

Up in the Air by Brandi Kincaid and the coordinating dies HERE

You Deserve…

Happy Weekend! Just popping in with a fun card to share. I stamped these little coffee cups from Ellen Hutson’s Everyday Doodles by Julie Ebersole in a few colors on some other panels. They make QUICK cards and I just love the coffee cup best in this set! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love to offset the stamps slightly. Sometimes maybe more than I intended. shhhhh! ๐Ÿ˜‰

A friend of mine had a light bulb moment, when she said, make the coffee cups GREEN! Yes!! It’s such a fun nod to the whole Starbucks scene….green, stars, and obviously coffee! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s Everyday Doodles by Julie Ebersole (and the coordinating dies HERE) with the sentiment from Voices In My Head by Julie Ebersole. oh Julie–you are trouble! ๐Ÿ™‚

I made a handful of other cards with the Every Day Doodles set, so we’ll see if I can get around to sharing those sometime this calendar year too!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just Keep Swimming!

Happy Fourth of July! I thought I’d share a fun little summer holiday card today! This one goes in the mail tomorrow! โค

For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s Beach Lady (and the coordinating dies HERE), Pattern Play, and the sentiment from Mermaid’s Tail.

I colored the crabs blue with Copic Markers and stamped the little pattern with a bit of an ombre-like look. I think this card screams summer! So fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great and safe holiday!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ellen Hutson’s New July Release!

Today, there is a super fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! This release is by Julie Ebersole and you know I am a fan of what Julie whips up! This release is no exception! ๐Ÿ™‚

There is so much fun on the mermaid front, but this time I flocked to the Rainbow and Unicorns set!ย  Because: Rainbows.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ #trouble

Go Forth and Be Fabulous! โค

This little unicorn and all the rainbow fun! eeeeek!

For this card, I created a Distress Oxide Ink background with masking and blending.

Fantasmagorical?! โค

I colored all the little images with Copic Markers and then added them to the cards in little scenes.

This sentiment had me at Sprinkles! I love everything sprinkles!ย  LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

This sentiment is a RIOT! Sure to make someone laugh, I’m sure! I did!

Too funny!

And then this last card, I kept it very simple, but it probably took the longest to make! It was late at night and I was trying to line everything up with tired eyes. Silly! ๐Ÿ™‚

Rainbow delight! With Sparkly glitter to boot!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I used three new Essentials by Ellen products for these cards:

Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Pure Magic By Julie Ebersole

Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Unicorns ‘N Rainbows By Julie Ebersole

Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies, Unicorns ‘N Rainbows By Julie Ebersole

I also used the previously released and versatile: ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN CLEAR STAMPS, PATTERN PLAY BY BRANDI KINCAID.

For several of the cards,ย  I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits. Love those little sparkly bits!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚
