essentials by ellen winter 2016 hop!


today is a super exciting day and i'm so glad you are here to join in the essentials by ellen winter 2016 hop! you should be arriving from jennifer mcguire's blog, jennifer mcguire ink

today i'm beyond thrilled to show off some of the new essentials by ellen stamps and dies designed by the amazing julie ebersole! first up, oh frappe stamp set and coordinating die:
i watercolored a quick background with distress inks and then used the small heart die to cut some hearts from my panel. i created my sentiment with part of one of the oh frappe stamps and the new essentials by ellen basic alpha.

and i also used the bitty envelope die:
i used the adorable bitty envelope in a shaker card, along with some sequins and heart die cuts (made with the oh frappe die set). i used a multiliner pen to trace the embossed envelope details. and i created my polka dot background with embossed circles and a blue watercolor wash.

I never thought I'd figure out how to get to the comment form! The coffee card is so much fun, but the shaker made me laugh out loud with its cleverness. Kudos! And many thanks!

So much fun and definitely something I will want to try! ((even it it's not part of the Ellen hop!)) )
