Ellen Hutson’s New June Release!

Today, there is a fun NEW RELEASE from Ellen Hutson! eeeeeep! The Leading Ladies are quite lovely. When I saw the cute little accessories and little stamps Brandi Kincaid included in the sets, I found myself repeatedly stamping them. โคThis tiny little crab received all my attention in the newly released ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DESIGNER DIES, LEADING LADIES – BEACH LADY BY BRANDI KINCAID! Ha! Such a fun summery set! ๐Ÿ™‚

How cute is this little crab?!! And I am a HUGE fan of Brandi’s other new set, ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN CLEAR STAMPS, PATTERN PLAY BY BRANDI KINCAID. Such sweet and playful little backgrounds! ๐Ÿ™‚

I colored him with Copic Markers. โค

Here’s another crabby card:

This one is so beachy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s Sea Where the Wind Takes Us! โค

And of course, I had to have a crab with the cute googlies! ๐Ÿ™‚ Again, I used another background from the afore mentioned set. I think I used all of them? LOL

And lastly, I decided to let the cute little crab rest, and bust out all the beachy accessories. ๐Ÿ™‚

Again, I colored all these with Copic Markers too. To polish it off, I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits and some stitching.

I’m looking forward to mailing out these lil’ summer hellos!

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™‚

We Are All Rockstars!

Rockin’ out some more Technique Tuesday fun! This sentiment & tape stamp is from the Turn Up The Volume. Fun stuff. 

hawkins_jill_rockstars_wm I embossed the tapes and then used Distress Inks to watercolor over them. hawkins_jill_rockstars_00_wmAfter that was all set, I die cut some stars, stamped the sentiment, and stitched some sequins on.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I think these music sentiments are fun & unexpected for cards. Plus, let’s face it…in my head is the only place I can actually carry a tune. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Check out all the fun at Technique Tuesday!

Here’s to a happy Wednesday!!

For the Record

I can’t stop using my favorite from Technique Tuesday’s June release, this Music Makers record die!

hawkins_jill_bono_00_wmSuch a super fun sentiment from this Memory Keepers Make Music! I drew a grid for the BG and kept this card very simple in the end. It sort of has a little 80’s feel, yes? ๐Ÿ™‚
I’ll be back this week to show more fun from this Technique Tuesday release, so stay tuned!

Have an awesome weekend!! Jill ๐Ÿ™‚
