Hi there! I wanted to pop in with a few more projects using the newest Ellen Hutson Essentials By Ellen release and let you know about a big sale that Ellen is having over the weekend! But first… the projects. 🙂
For my first project, I wanted to convey the look of spilled coffee, so I did some wet-on-wet watercolor using the Hero Arts liquid watercolors in Cocoa and Bronze. I heat embossed the coffee cup from the new Latte Love onto some more Arches Cold Press watercolor paper using white embossing powder, then watercolored it with more Cocoa and Dark Teal liquid watercolors, adding some “foam” using White Puff embossing powder and die cutting it with the coordinating dies. I white embossed the coordinating sentiment from Latte Love onto some heavyweight vellum. I adhered the coffee cup to the vellum panel, then hid my adhesive behind the coffee cup to adhered the vellum panel to the “spilled coffee” panel.
For my second project today, I wanted to focus on that gorgeous new Big Scripty Thank You die set. It comes with both the intricate word dies and the outline, so you can create a mat for your sentiment die cut! I started by die cutting the Stitched Cover Plate panel from some white card stock, then die cutting the Big Scripty Thank You outline from the bottom corner. I also die cut the sentiment itself from silver foil. I backed the the stitched panel with some acetate, then created a shaker card using some Sparkling Clear sequins and chunky glitter.
For my last project today, I wanted to focus on another of the lovely new Big Scripty sentiment dies: Hello. I began by stamping some balloons using the Abstract Paint Strokes stamp set in a cheerful color scheme, adding some shadows using the rock’n’roll technique and a darker shade of ink for each color. I added some sparkly silver tassels at the bottom, then used a black pen to add the balloon strings. For the greeting, I die cut the new Big Scripty Hello from black card stock, then stamped the rest of the greeting from Lovely using black ink.
Well, that’s all for my projects today! I hope you’ll check out the new Essentials By Ellen release… so many wonderful products! And, if that’s not enough incentive…
