Hello!!!! It’s here!!! It’s HERE! It’s finally here! Welcome to the Late Summer 2016 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! You should have arrived by way of the fabulous TERI ANDERSON! Today, I’ll be sharing three cards with you all showcasing a few of the new stamp sets and dies from the release! I made a ton more projects using other products from the release, but today I’ll only be focusing on three products! So be sure to stay tuned here on the blog to see more projects using the other products… I also have a FULL REVEAL video to go along with this post that will showcase every stamp set and die set in the release so be sure to check that out as well! Let’s take a look at the three cards I’ve made today:
PINEAPPLES!!!!! ACK! They are so on trend right now and I didn’t own one thing pineapplish so this is absolutely perfection!!!! I made three very different, but yet still clean and simple, cards today using the Stay Golden stamp set and coordinating die.
I’ve got a very clean and simple card here! I stamped the pineapple and tuft (I had to actually google what the name of the top of the pineapple is called, lol) onto watercolored cardstock in Versamark and heat set it with Gold Embossing powder. Then I did some very simple watercoloring using my Gansai watercolors! I added the panel to the card base I stamped with the Thin Stripes background stamp. The sentiment!!!! I stamped Mahalo from the Stay Golden stamp set and then die cut the Sunshine die from the Sunshine Block N Script die set multiple times and stacked them on top of each other and then adhered them down to my card! I think the pairing from the sentiment in the stamp set and the die cut go perfectly together! Added a bit of glitter over the top of the “sunshine” and voila! Look at all the sparkle and shine from the Gold embossing!
Next up, I stamped the Pineapples in different colors onto a card base and ink blended the edges a bit with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Essentials by Ellen Vellum and heat embossed it and adhered it over the top of the card base to give that soft overlay look.
I love that the Stay Golden stamp set also has little flowers! Great fillers for a background.
And my last card, and obviously the busiest, lol!!!! A watercolored pineapple card!!!! HAHAHA! That’s pretty much all I did. I stamped, watercolored and die cut a bunch of those adorable pineapples and mounted them to watercolored card panel with foam dimension (used the Gansai watercolors for all the watercoloring)… I had a lot of fun making this one!! 🙂
