Ellen Hutson Giveaways

Winter 2015 Essentials by Ellen RELEASE HOP plus GIVEAWAY and video


HELLO!  HELLO! I am so totally stoked to be here today!  Why? Because today is THE day!  Welcome to the Winter 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! You should have found me by way of the fab Teri Anderson! I’ll be showcasing several of the new stamp sets and dies on my blog today! There are a total of 5 stamps sets and 6 dies in this release and every single one of them is a show stopper, I kid you not! Let’s take a look at the projects I’ve prepared today for the hop! (The supply list at the end of the post will be updated after the product links go live in the shop).


I heat embossed one of the balloon images from the WISH Big stamp set, masked off the top area of the card panel and added some color with distress inks. The OH HAPPY DAY is from the Bold Blooms stamp set.  Isn’t it divine? The thick scripty font? NOM NOM! I stamped that in Versamark onto some Essentials by Ellen 43LB vellum (this stuff is AMAZEBALLS) and heat set it in white….


And while I had the Wish Big stamp set out, I thought I would create a fun peekaboo shaker card by pairing the Wish Big stamp set with the Mini Windows die set. That die set is AMAZING! Check out all the windows! The possibilities are ENDLESS!  I grabbed some fun striped patterned paper and found that the happy birthday sentiment (isn’t that fab? It’s doubles as a balloon string too) fit in between those stripes perfectly! I then ran one of the window dies thru my die cutting machine to create the window!


At this point, you could adhere this panel down flat or pop it up with some foam tape, add some clear accetate, pop in some sequins and glitter and create a shaker! I stamped the WISH BIG directly onto the clear acetate with Versamark, sprinkled on some Liquid Platinum Embossing powder and carefully heat set it to avoid warping the acetate.



And last but not least, I wanted to create a soft and delicate watercolored card for you all.  I die cut some images from the gorgeous Bold Blossoms stand alone die set, inked them up with some Versamark ink and heat set them in Liquid Platinum and Enchanted Gold embossing powder! I love the shine and dimension it leaves behind and I LOVE how intriquate yet sturdy these die cuts are!


I created a card base with some Distress Ink and added the Sparkle and Shine sentiment from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set!  That stamp truly is like, HELLO, you are goregeous. The sentiments, the bling! It’s fantastic! And if you look closely at that sentiment, I added a little bit of Enchanted Gold embossing powder as well as the Liquid Platinum embossing powder to create an ombre type look. Or at least, that is what I was going for!


Let’s talk giveaway time, because the kind folks at Ellen Hutson, LLC have generously given me an extra  WISH BIG stamp set to give away to one of you! All you have to do to be eligible to win is leave a comment on my blog and then let Rafflecopter know that you did (linked at the end of this post)!
