7 cardmaking ideas with essentials by ellen

 Are you looking for some cardmaking inspiration? Well wait until you see these stamps & dies from Essentials by Ellen! I've been crafting up a stack of cards (because Baby Cal has started sleeping through the night...yay!) and I can't wait to show you what I've been making.

My talented friend Julie Ebersole has designed some really cute stamp sets that are bursting with hysterical puns like this set, Guac On! I had fun using multiple green inks to create custom avocados.


Julie is also the creative genius behind the Just Squidding set. I love that there are multiple options for the squid's expressions and I couldn't resist making a sparkly shaker card.

The Essentials by Ellen stitching dies come in circles, squares, rectangles and ovals. I love how versatile they are...you can weave a fun design like I did on this card...

...or you can just use the little holes as a design element. I love how graphic this card turned out! I die cut the circles, put a little color behind them and a few star sequins on top.

I love pairing the Hit That pinata with fringe and I'm just smitten with the fringe dies! (More on fringe tomorrow.)
