Good Morning! Happy Saturday!
Today, I am sharing this card I finished late last night using Essentials by Ellen Bear Ware 2. How cute is this little Snowman Bear? Gah! (I thought I had the dies, but I guess not? Ha! So I fussy cut the snowbears out. 😉 )
I colored them last night with Copic Markers for The Daily Marker’s 30 Day Challenge and then popped them on a card. (Check out that Challenge HERE! Kathy is FABULOUS!)
Let me just say, I think this is the most purple I have used in years! LOL! Also, this card is BUSY! It’s a little too busy for me, but I still think it’s too cute to not share. 🙂
For the sentiment on this card, I used EH’s Warm Fuzzies stamp set. (I heat embossed it.) That set is a super fave of mine! ❤
For the background of this card, I used my friend Miriam’s Neat & Tangle stencil, Rice Paddies. There is so much detail on that stencil, it can be used for awesome things! 🙂 I used Wilted Violet Oxide ink. I also stamped the little dots from EH’s Abstract Paint Strokes.
To finish off this card, I added some Neat & Tangled sequins (Thank you, N&T!) and some stitching.
I used all the purples and violets to participate in Ellen Hutson’s Pinsight Challenge! It’s been awhile, so I am happy to participate again–dig the EH Challenges!
Check it out and join in! I think there is still a bunch of time to play along! 🙂
Have a great weekend! Jill 🙂
I need some sunshine to mail and I saw the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge this month: Strawberry, Orange and Lemon–perfection!
Here is my card!
For this, I used two Essentials by Ellen stamps sets: Wonky Backdrops and Warm Fuzzies.I watercolored with Distress Inks: Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed. I stamped with Versamark Black ink and clear heat embossed all those. To finish it off, I added some spatters and stitching for texture.
There’s still time to jump in on this Pin-Sights Challenge! I hope to squeeze in another card using this combo–since it is a go-to fave of mine anyway. 😉
See you back here tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
When I saw Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge this month was with Paper Smooches, well, I had to jump in! I was so excited to mix it up with some super faves 🙂 . I’m hoping I can sneak in another soon, since I have many things splayed across my desk already. Haaaa! 🙂
Oh my word!! I cannot handle how cute this little bear is with these giant PS glasses! 🙂 I think he might be struggling a bit, since his treat is upside down. 😉
I clear heat embossed this little guy. I colored in the Sunshine with both Copic markers and colored pencils. I could not decide how I wanted it to look! 🙂 I admittedly snickered when I finished this last night. Such fun! 🙂
For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside (and dies), Bear Ware (and dies), and Warm Fuzzies. From Paper Smooches, I used the Rainbow Die and Glasses dies. SOOOO fun! 🙂
I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson March Mix It Up Challenge: Paper Smooches…I’m actually early this time, so be sure you check it out too!! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Have an AWESOME sunshiney weekend!!
I think this little bunny is so stinkin’ cute with his floppiness <3. I’ve been wanting to use him in bulk. 🙂
When I saw the current Ellen Hutson’s January Pin Sight Challenge, I thought now is the time! The photo inspiration directly and indirectly refers to COZY! ❤ Perfect! 🙂
I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside, Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies! I colored these cuties all with Copic Markers, and die cut them out. I then used some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to add a little watercolor to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment and stitched it right on. To finish, I matted the panel and put it all together. This took a little bit of time overall, but in the end, the cute result was worth it! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT week!:)
I needed a little love to send in the mail today. I was inspired by all the lovely RED and white in the current Ellen Hutson’s Pin-Sights Challenge, so I ran with that. I love white with some deep, dark red! 🙂
I white heat embossed the sentiments on the background repeatedly. It’s such a subtle and delightful detail to add.I then die cut some hearts from Ellen Hutson’s All Inside dies and stamped a sentiment from Warm Fuzzies! The background was stamped & heat embossed with the stamps from All Inside. 🙂

The three wreaths in the bottom right photo inspired my three hearts. ❤
I really like these challenges every month! So inspiring 🙂
Have a great weekend! Stay warm!
It’s that crazy time of year right? But when isn’t it always a little bit crazy? 🙂
I’m squeaking in this entry to Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist! Such fun!
Here’s my festive tag!
I used Neat & Tangled’s Scandinavian Prints Christmas and Ellen Hutson’s Warm Fuzzies! I was delighted and inspired by Day 8 with Carly Tee Minner & Kelly Marie Alvarez…I loved these colorful trees (below) by Margaret Berg, that Carly was inspired by to create her super cute tag. And then Kelly’s adorable unicorn tag! Gah, so stinkin’ fun!
That’s three levels of inspiration, right? 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
I am sneaking in another post today! I have been trying to make a card for this challenge for days!! I enjoy this challenge and I also always really like the photos to draw inspiration from. I made this card in piecemeal.
Please excuse the photo. I finally finished this tonight, and of course, the night-time photos are always awful. (I’ll try to replace it tomorrow. I hope!) 🙂 Edited: Adding new day time photos! Hooray for daylight!
I love to use Ellen Hutson’s Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies!
Edited: Original photo taken at night below: Yuck. 😦 The above photos still can’t quite make it look like it does in front of me though. #ongoingbattleofphotographing
I stamped and then I watercolored with my Zig pens & water. This (original nighttime) photo makes them look washed out and blah, but they are actually much more autumn like and cheery! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
This is my #thedailymarker30day entry too! Find all mine on IG! 🙂 (ETA: Ended up coloring something else last night too!)
My family gave me an early gift today: I had a WHOLE hour, on a Saturday, to make a card! Confession: I did do laundry at the same time, but it was as close to crafty bliss as I can get in daylight. I craft in daylight maybe 3-4x a year. Literally. LOL 🙂
I had to use Ellen Hutson’s All Inside stamp and die set. Again. There are so many possibilities with this set and all his goodies from Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies!
I just love these sentiments’ font. 🙂
I stamped and die cut all these images. Then I colored them, and the background, with my Zig pens & water. Such fun! 🙂
One of my favorite colors is Orange. Excited to see all the Orange in the Pin Sights Challenge going on over at Ellen Hutson right now. It also made me think FALL (obviously)…and this week was cold, rainy, and all the plants began withering away. 😉
I’m entering this in the Essentials by Ellen October Pin-Sights Challenge.Check it out.
Here’s a few other cards I’ve made with this set: HERE, HERE, and HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Fall! Happy daylight crafting! 🙂
I so enjoy making cards to send with Ellen Hutson’s All Inside stamp and die set. That cute little bear and the fonts are perfecto! Well, now this cutie has all sorts of things he can hold! If you saw my card HERE, you know I looooove this idea! 🙂
Oh my word! This just makes me smile!! 🙂
I had the good fortune (and may have been a little excited!) to be randomly selected for the Ellen Hutson gift card last month, so I figured, it was a sign I should get the new Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies! Right? Obviously. 😉
I blended Distress Inks onto this panel. If I recall, the inks I used were: Fired Brick, Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and a little Carved Pumpkin to round it all out. Then I stamped the sentiment strip, and stitched it on. I used my Zig pens and Kuretake watercolors to color the bear and his wares. 🙂
The colors I chose were inspired by the Pin Sights Challenge going on over at Ellen Hutson right now. As well as narrowing my choice to using the flowers first! See photo inspiration below. 🙂
I also used a My Favorite Things die: Blueprints #13.

Thanks for stopping by! And thank you all for leaving such warm fuzzies here on my blog recently. 🙂 So kind!
