essentials by ellen late summer 2016 hop!


Today is a super exciting day and I'm so glad you are here to join in the Essentials By Ellen Late Summer 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, the Stay Golden stamp set and coordinating die:


The largest pineapple from the set makes a great window in the front of a card! I paired it with gold embossing powder, Pink Fresh paper and flowers stamped in Distress Ink & watercolored. 

Next I played with the Lovely stamp set, full of amazing sentiments!



I LOVE the sentiment "you are enough"! I think it should be a daily reminder/mantra for everyone. I paired it with watercolored flowers from the Stay Golden die set and more gold embossing powder.

Before you go, there's one more awesome thing, yay! I also get to give away an Essentials by Ellen stamp set!  The winner may chose ANY  Essentials by Ellen brand stamp set  (Maximum value $25 USD) currently in stock at ellenhutson.com  To enter my giveaway, please leave a comment on today’s post  by Tuesday, August 23rd!
