Essentials by Ellen, Giveaway

Video: Essentials by Ellen October Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Welcome to the Essentials by Ellen October Release Blog Hop. If you came from the amazing Carly Tee Minner’s blog, you are right on track!

To celebrate a new release from Essentials by Ellen, I created a one layer card focusing on the Thistle stamp set.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the MFT Hand-Lettered stamp set in the middle of my card front with Altenew black ink. FYI, I used Altenew Spicy Yogurt cardstock as my card base to give an earthy feeling to my card.

Then I stamped the flowers and stems from the Thistle stamp set with Hero Arts purple ombre ink and Altenew moss Ink.

Next, I stamped the circles from the Bokeh Dots stamp set in three shades of purple to fill in the gaps between my main images. FYI, I did some stamp surgery by cutting out my stamp with scissors to get a tiny circle stamp.

I also created a matching envelope by heat embossing the sentiment from the Hand-Lettered Stamp Set on a flap of the purple envelope with Altenew gold embossing powder.

Video

I made a video tutorial to show you how to create to create a fun background using the Thistle stamp set. I’m also showing a tip on how to add a personal touch to an envelope. You can watch it above or on my YouTube channel.

    The Thistle stamp is my favorite stamp from the new release. It’s amazing how thistles look so much better in a stamp than in the garden! I love your card. The color combo you chose looks amazing. I love the “dots”. They really pull the card together.
