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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚ I am planning to make a banner using the bats, so hopefully I get that done before Halloween and can come back and share. πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

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!

Take care–Jill πŸ™‚

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! πŸ™‚

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. 🀍🀍

First up, I had to use two new sets and one of my favorite all time EH little guys. πŸ™‚ 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 InsideΒ  (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? πŸ™‚

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. πŸ‘»πŸ‘»

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. πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

I also accidentally adhered her broom upside down, so apparently she is ready to start cleaning vs. flying? haaa! πŸ™‚ Oh it’s all too cute, “upside down” or not. 🧑🧑

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. πŸ™‚

You can find the entire Ellen Hutson Fall Release HERE! Happy shopping! πŸ™‚

Halloween Release from Taylored Expressions!

Taylored Expressions has a New Release today for Halloween!! πŸ‘»πŸ‚ This is always a fun release and makes me long for crunchy leaves and layers of clothes… because our Fall is often really cold in the morning and then by noon you are sweating bullets. Ha! But I digress… on to the new Halloween Release!

First up, I have this spooky little glittertastic number! For this, I used the new Jack-O-Lantern Stencil with the Glitter Grab and TE Glitter. I was quite sparkly when I finished.

This sentiment is from the previously released Handlettered Halloween. I stamped it on Eggplant and clear embossed for some interest. I die cut the Frame in Frame 2 die with the TE Glitter Cardstock. I love how that made quick work to create a sparkly frame!

Next up, these fun little treat Halloween Critter Clips and with glassine treat bags! And then there are these stickers too! Gah, always enjoy the stickers! ❀

I used the TE Halloween Felt Bundle felts and adhered them on some Oreo Cardstock for heft. This extra step also made it easy to attach them to the clip. I love the spider best maybe? Don’t tell the other spooky cuties though. πŸ˜‰

He’s too funny! Naturally, I had to add some google eyes to these guys too. πŸ™‚

These are going to be so fun to give to coworkers this Halloween. Though, I might eat the candy and replace it closer to Halloween…? shhhhh…

And lastly, I thought it would be fun to make this shaker card with the new Sugar Rush lil lollipops.

This was a fun one to make. I decided to die cut the lollipops out and then re-insert them into their negative cardstock. This just made it easier to use the stencils on them to create the designs. It allowed me to know a little better to center the lollipop. And yes, do not adjust your screen–I did make a lavender lollipop. πŸ™‚ I masked off the sticks to create stripes.

I thought this would be extra fun as a spiral and a shaker card. These could easily be made into Halloween colors as well. All the Sugar Rush treats would be super fun for tags–especially for treats!

The Simple Strip sentiment is from the SS Thanks set. I stamped that on Toffee and white heat embossed it. Actually, I did this way back. I am a big fan of stamping a lot of Simple Strips at once and then storing them in the Simple Strips Storage ContainersΒ  until I need. Nothing makes my cardmaking day like having an embossed sentiment all ready to go! πŸ™‚

Taylored Expressions: Treat Boxes And…!

Happy Thursday! I’m back to share more about the new release over at Taylored ExpressionsΒ today! All the new products are available over at Taylored Expressions now!

Today, I’m here to share the new All Tucked in Christmas set. Love these little treat boxes for giving!

I used the previously released All Tucked In favor box and All Tucked In Windows to create a favor box for small holiday gift-giving. (I had a sweet little hand model to help me out with photos–paid in a candy sample, of course. πŸ™‚ )

I love these sweet fonts so much!

Cue the holiday music! πŸ™‚

Next up, a fun filled holiday card, ready to give! It is always so satisfying to use a lot of smaller stamps to create big, isn’t it?! I thought a “chalkboard” like look would be fun. I remember when chalkboard was all the rage! Or maybe it still is? As you can tell, I really have my finger on the pulse of trends, don’t I? Ha!! But I do love this truck! Are you with me? πŸ™‚

Such a fun background with all those sentiments and small little icons! ❀

You can find all my supplies and links to the Taylored Expressions Shop below.
