Ellen Hutson’s January Mix It Up Challenge

Over at the Ellen Hutson’s Classroom there is a Mix It Up Challenge that calls for a card using products from Ellen Hutson and for January, My Favorite Things.  I probably use either a My Favorite Things stamp or die on every project so I just had to participate.

In fact, I just got the new release Tag Builders 5 in the mail today so I was exceptionally happy to play with my new goodies.  For the Ellen component, I used the great starburst image in “Merry & Bright” both in the tag and in the background.  I created the shaker with the Tag Builders die by MFT and for paper I used MyMinds Eye “Fancy That.”  Finally, for the sentiment I used another new release stamp called, “Love You More.”

Ellen Hutson’s Pin-Sight Challenge December

Today I got off work a little early and wanted to play so I created my December Pin-Sight Challenge for Ellen Hutson’s Classroom.  Here is the inspiration:

I used the inspiration from Julie’s past Make it Monday using the Brushstroke Christmas. I also used Mistletoe & Holly stamp and dies stamping them with gold embossing powder and watercoloring with Distress Markers.  The background is We R Memory Keepers Basketweave folder cut from My Favorite Things Brushed Gold Metallic paper.

Mix it Up Challenge using Ellen & Avery Elle

Happy Thursday Friends.  Today I broke out my Dylusions Ink to do some watercoloring to enter my card into the Ellen Mix It Up Challenge.  For this challenge Ellen chooses one other company for a combined product challenge.  This week it’s Avery Elle.

My card features the “Mondo Magnolia” by Ellen and the Avery Elle “Gift Tag” set. To achieve this look I followed Julie Ebersole’s tutorial from a previous “Hello Monday” called “Magic Watercolor” – Thanks Julie!

Believe it or not, Julie almost scrapped this because she didn’t like how it came out at first but I’m thrilled she persevered.  The birthday sentiment is from “Cupcake Party” by Simon Says Stamp.

Ellen Hutson & Lawn Fawn Pinspiration

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’ve made a birthday card for Ellen Hutson’s new “Mix It Up Challenge” with Lawn Fawn.  I just love this stamp set by Ellen & Julie Ebersole.  I also added in Lawn Fawn’s bird from Critters in the Forest.   The animals are colored with Copic Markers and the Balloons are Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters, and Peacock Feathers. The stars are a combination of Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp.  I inlayed the balloons, but added dimension with foam tape for the entire card panel.
