2 ways to use the essentials by ellen sentiment strips die

Oh sentiment strips! A little strip of cardstock with a sweet sentiment stamped on it is one of my favorite ways to add a message to a card! So I'm obviously thrilled that Essentials by Ellen has added a stamp and die combo that make it impossibly easy to stamp & cut a bunch of sentiment strips.

And as I was playing with these new goodies, I found a couple of different ways to use the strips too!

You can use the strips to create a fun & dimensional look...

For this card I die cut white cardstock with the Sentiment Strips die and then swiped them with various ink pads to add color. For some I adhered layers together to get various heights. Then I adhered them all to a card. 

Or you can even use the actual metal die as a stencil and do a little ink blending...

I actually used some low-tack tape to hold the metal die down while I ink blended. After I just wiped the excess ink off the die, easey peasy! And of course I topped it with a sentiment strip!

Thanks for stopping by and pop over to the Ellen Hutson blog to see more and mark your calendar for Friday's release!
