diy pocket card with essentials by ellen

Today is release day for the Essentials by Ellen January collection! YAY!!!

I love Brandi Kincaid's fabulous collection of characters, especially this new Little Lady! I thought her sweet little outstretched arm was perfect for creating a gift card holder. Here's a quick video of my process:

And here are a few quick tips...

  • Stray bits of Nuvo Glimmer Paste can be wiped away when wet BUT if you don't catch it until it's dry, use an eraser to remove some of it (probably not all of it because hey, it's glitter...LOL).
  • Wipe wet Glimmer Paste off tools quickly.
  • Glimmer Paste dries best when air dried and it doesn't actually take too long. It can be heat set but be careful because it will bubble if it gets too hot. 
  • If you have had trouble blending inks, I highly recommend the Trinity Stamps Blendability Brushes. I have never been able to get a good blend on my fav white cardstock Solar White and have always had to substitute watercolor paper, until now!

Thanks so much for stopping by and you can check out the whole Essentials by Ellen release HERE!

Happy Friday Hugs!
