My Kind of Happy!

I’m popping in today to share a little card I made to play along with the current EH Challenge and tell you about their sale! 🙂 Always fun…and maybe a bit of trouble…wink wink!

The current Ellen Hutson June Color Trends Challenge is:

Here is my card:

In my mind, this card either has too much purple (LOL!) or not enough white? I’m not sure which? Or actually, it’s probably both!

I first made this card with no image, and then after taking a photograph of it, I realized it looked naked. So I FINALLY (after looking for 20 minutes) found this So Matcha by Julie Ebersole set, and colored up a sweet little image to add.

The sentiment is from this set:  Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Totally Random Sayings Vol. 2 by Julie Ebersole

Two things: 1. I’m pretty sure I always use this girl. 2. I’m also pretty sure I always color her orange! Ha!! So sweet!

I first masked and stamped on the stripes from the new ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN CLEAR STAMPS, PATTERN PLAY BY BRANDI KINCAID. (Awesome staple set to have!) Then I blended on some Purples and Greens and Mustard Seed Distress Ink. I finished it with some splats of water, white paint, and stitching. Then I went back and colored up the lil’ lady with Copics and fussy cut her out to add on top of some stamped flowers.

Here’s the naked card:

I’m glad I opted to add the sweet girl to finish off this card. That’s a whole lotta purple! Eeeek! ( If I made this again, I’d add a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear confetti bits I think.)

And before I forget, I did mention SALE didn’t I!? Hooray! Time to grab a few things you’ve been waiting for:

So Lucky to Call You Friend

I might be the only person excited about Springing the clocks ahead! My son gets up crazy early everyday, and this means that it isn’t quite as early (for the next six months or so), fingers crossed! 🙂

Anyway, I’m popping in to share another card today. I whipped this one up last night using Ellen Hutson’s super cute new set: So Matcha by Julie Ebersole. Julie does it again! ❤

This set is just darling–that’s the best word for it! I colored everything with Copic markers and fussy cut out the images. I stamped the background with a Hero Arts Ombre Pool to Navy pad to create the light to dark on the bamboo. 🙂

As always, I finished this cutie lil’ number off with some simple stitching and Voila!

Looking forward to mailing this very soon! I have a large stack to sit down and address!

Thank you to Ellen Hutson for gifting us these cute sets at our recent crafty get-together! So sweet of you to share your goodness! 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by again today! Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

Take care– Jill 🙂
