essentials by ellen february 2017 hop!


Yay, it's Essentials By Ellen release day! I've been so excited for today and I'm so happy you're here! Welcome!!! Today I have the honor of showing off some of the new release, the Mirror Mirror sets by Brandi Kincaid and the Swing N Slide die by Julie Ebersole! First up, Mirror Mirror stamps & dies:
 

To create this card, I stamped the background with makeup images from the Make It Beautiful set, coloring just the lipstick with a VersaMark pen and embossing with new WOW Yum Yum Bubblegum pink. I cut a circle from silver foil paper and embossed the sentiment in the same powder I used on the lipsticks, to look like a lipstick message on a mirror. Quick tip...not all foiled paper can handle heat embossing so make sure to test a scrap first. And to create the "lights", I colored the circles and topped with Morning Dew Nuvo drops. Of course there is yellow Nuvo but when you use clear (Morning Dew) over blendable ink, it "pulls" the color up to create more of a glow.

Next I continued my lipstick theme with Julie's adorable Swing N Slide die...

To create this card, I blended Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks on smooth watercolor paper. I embossed the sentiment in white and drew my "lipstick" heart with Watermelon pink gelato. Gelatos make fabulous "lipstick" for paper! I used one of the slide dies on the panel, inking the card beneath it to match. And I created the slider with the lipstick from the Make It Beautiful set.

Oh my goodness, when I saw the slider card, I thought it would be great if you did just one loop, like those pink ribbons for someone who is going through breast cancer treatment!
