Ellen Hutson Gelatos Stencils/Masks Techniques Videos

Video: Gelato Stenciled Background


Hi there! Yesterday I was so honored to be a part of the Essentials by Ellen Winter Release Blog hop! I made two cards using the Up the Happy stamp set and Positive Word dies. Remember, I have a giveaway over on the post so if you haven’t already, head HERE and leave a comment! I received a lot of comments about the cards, particularly the yellow butterfly card so I thought I would recreate it and film it for you all (I just used purple instead of yellow). All the supplies I used are linked at the end of this post. I have to say, I wish it was more difficult to make this background so you guys would think I’m some sort of genius, lol! When you watch the video, you will see that is not the case – sigh! 🙂


You can watch the video here on my blog, or head on over to my youtube channel and watch it in HD!

    Beautiful Card Laurel!! I was wondering if maybe you linked the wrong stencil as the one linked in the supply list looks different from the one used in the video?
