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.

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.

    I love the way you add the dots to your projects, its add just the right decorative touch. I think I like the Thistle stamp and the hand lettering stamp. Thank you for your awesome ideas. I love the way you use vellum on the front of your cards. It is sooo pretty.
