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:

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! 🙂 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. 🙂

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 called ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN DESIGNER DIES, Block Words by Julie Ebersole.  Again, I created the background with the  Plaid Maker stamp set…just one simple stamp can do so many cool patterns. 🙂 The first part of the sentiment is a stamp from the new 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!
