Essentials by Ellen Release


Over at today, there is a new Essentials by Ellen release.  I was very happy to be asked to create with some of the new products.  I was able to work with the new 
All About You by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps and the new All About You by Julie Ebersole, Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies.  One really fun thing about this set, is 
that the stamp set coordinates with an existing die from the Nice of You by Julie Ebersole set.   Which is a fun way to get more use out of your dies.  Click on the graphic below to see the entire new release.  

For my first card today, I stamped and gold heat embossed the All About You stamp multiple times on different candy colored card stocks.  This went really quickly, and in the end, you can make a ton of cards from the additional sentiment strips you will have left over.  (I also stamped and heat embossed this stamp onto black card stock at this time - this would be for use in my second card.)

I die cut the sentiments with the Nice of You die, and, while my die cutting machine was on my desk, I die cut the y, o, and u from the All About You die set, out of gold foiled card stock.  

I adhered the elements on edge of a panel of Woodgrain Embossed card stock.  I wove the first strip through the tail of the "Y" before adhering.  As I was adhering the strips, I lined up the last character on each strip, so that the sentiments ended in the same place.  I trimmed any extra off of the edge, before adding a small strip of gold foiled card stock to that right edge of the card.  

I added the panel to a white card base, made from heavyweight card stock, using foam tape.  Then I added a few clear gems around my die cuts to finish the card.  

For the second card I'm sharing today, I stamped and white heat embossed the Nice of You Stamp, multiple times on various colored card stock.  I then die cut the strips with the Nice of You die.  

On an A2 sized panel of white card stock, I adhered the rainbow colored strips in lines.  Once I had filled the panel, I trimmed the edges to a card front size.  

I die cut another set of y. o, and u die cuts from the gold foil card stock, as well as cutting the solid backing from black card stock.  I cut a panel of vellum to 3" x 4.25", and then adhered the die cuts together on the panel, along with adding one of the sentiment strips I stamped and embossed while working on my first card.  

I adhered a few clear gems around my main sentiment, and then used the die cuts and gems to hide the adhesive I used to adhere the vellum to the card front.  The finished card front was attached to a card base made of heavyweight card stock.  

The new Essentials by Ellen release is available now - only at!

  1. Oh. My. Word!!! I love the pastel card SO MUCH!!! I generally work with pastels and enjoy leaving lots of white space, so I really appreciate your use of just a little subtle texture on the top layer of white. This is an outstanding card!
