Essentials By Ellen Release Blog Hop Winter 2015 and Giveaway

Hello and welcome to the Winter 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop!  I'll be sharing several projects featuring some of the new stamp sets and dies on my post today!  Oh my!  You are going to LOVE this release!

I've also created a video showing how I created this project, featuring the Bold Blooms Stamp Set and Bold Blooms Matching Dies.  Check below for the video tutorial!  I've also linked all the products (including the entire release) below!  Be sure to scroll down to see both the video and the links!

I also created this card featuring the Bold Blooms Stamp Set and Bold Blooms Matching dies.  I added a little watercolor background to make the gorgeous flower pop off the page.  I also used some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to make the vellum shimmer.

For this card, I used the Folk Hearts Dies and Fancy Thanks Stamp Set.  Love this sentiment.  And I love how these heart dies are just a little bit funky!  I accented it with just a bit of patterned paper and some vellum hearts (colored with a Copic marker).

My final project also features the Folk Hearts Dies, but this time, I combined it with the Love You So Stamp Set.  Love the sayings in this stamp set because I say them all the time!  Talk about a personal card!  It's like I designed the stamp set myself!

I love all these new products that the sweet Julie Ebersole has designed for Ellen Hutson.  And they come in the most amazing packaging.  They're all ready to store in your stash, no labeling and re-packaging necessary!  The sleeves are sturdy and I love the magnetic sheet for the dies.

And I'm so excited because I get to give this new set, called Bold Blooms to a lucky someone.  Please leave a comment on this post to enter my giveaway.

There is also a Grand Giveaway in the CLASSroom!  To enter, be sure to leave a comment there and at every stop along the hop by March 2nd.  Winners will be announced March 4th!  Happy hoppin'!

Party On Shaker Card

I just can't get enough of the shaker cards.  I don't know if it's the sequins or the interactive portion of the card that I love so much...but I just love me a good shaker card.

When I saw this Simply Circles Die from Technique Tuesday, I knew that it would make a fabulous shaker card!  But I wanted to find a way to separate the multiple colors within the various circles.  In other words, I wanted to create color zones instead of having all of the colors mix together.

Not only is this die fun, but the largest circle at the bottom is designed to work with several of the circle sentiment stamp sets that Technique Tuesday makes.  I chose to use the Hello Flair Stamp Set for my sentiment....which nestles perfectly in that circle.  But you could use any of the Flair stamps from Technique Tuesday.  Imagine a Valentine's Day card with the heart from this Happy Day Flair Stamp Set!

I'll show you exactly how I created this card in the video tutorial below...including how I created separate zones for those fabulous sequins.  I've also included links to all the products used in this project below.

I hope you enjoy this project.  And I hope you'll check out some of the fun new products that Technique Tuesday has released for 2015.  You can find all of their newest products by clicking HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a FABULOUS day!
