Essentials by Ellen - September Release Guest Design



I am so excited to be posting today as a Guest Designer for the September Essentials By Ellen release! You are going to love all the stamps and designer dies that are a part of this new release!

I am hopping along today with Ellen Hutson LLC in The Classroom!
If you are hopping you should have arrived here from Carolynn Peeler's blog.

I am showcasing the new Essentials by Ellen No Peeking sentiment stamp set that was designed by amazing Brandi Kincaid. My first card uses this set combined with the newest in the Leading Ladies series, Baker Lady, also designed by Brandi Kincaid. I began by sponging a background on a Neenah solar white panel using Ranger Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick. I spritzed some water in the palm of my hand and flicked it on to my card and then absorbed the excess water with a paper towel to remove some of the ink and let the oxides work their magic. I stamped the sentiment from No Peeking over the dried panel using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Next I stamped the rolling pin and gingerbread from the Baker Lady Clear Stamp set, Copic coloured them and then die cut them from the Baker Lady Designer Dies. I adhered them to the card using some foam tape for dimension.  The last step was to add a few sparkling clear sequins that I filled with some Silver Stickles.  Makes for a cute Christmas card. The panel was adhered to the card base with foam tape for dimension.







My second card uses another sentiment from the No Peeking stamp set along with the new Modern Christmas Clear Stamps deigned by awesome Julie Ebersol. The holly is this set is so fun because the leaves can be stamped either as solid image or a sketch image. I arranged it so that the sentiment was lower than the holly and so that together they were centred on the panel. The sentiment was stamped first in VersaFine Onyx Black and then I stamped the holly using both the solid and the sketch leaves. I finished it off by tying some black and white twine around the panel and adhered it to the card base with foam tape for dimension.





One last project using the new Concertina Tag designer die along with the No Peeking and Bear Ware 2 stamp sets.

A trio of loveliness, Tracey (and congratulations again on your GD spot with EH!) ... that sweet sponged background with the gingerbread men is just adorable, the holly is so cool and deliciously graphic, and that cute little snowman amid all the shimmeriness is simply cute! So much fabulous inspiration, thank you! Hugs, Anita :)

A trio of wonderful projects, Tracey! I hope you don't ask me to choose a favorite, because they're all amazing! That first one is a jaw dropper! The pink and fun sentiment with those gingerbread boys is adorable. Love the filled sequins, too. The holly card is beautifully CAS, and I really do like the sketchy aspect of the one leaf. Very cool. And those little tags are darling. LOVE the pink and mint combination with those pops of silver and white. So sweet! Hope your YKWs are staying away!! Bev
