Hello! So excited to be a Guest Designer for the Essentials by Ellen October Pin-Sights Challenge! Check out this gorgeous inspiration board:
Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest Inspired photo that is located on the CLASSroom blog. A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store. To be eligible, you must use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration.
There is so much to be inspired by! My first card showcases the fall leaves. The Essentials by Ellen, Autumn Acorns is perfect:
cardstock: ranger watercolor, hero arts kraft stamps: essentials by ellen/autumn acorns ink: hero hues black, distress ink crushed olive/wild honey
I made this card especially for my Brother and Sister-in-Law. They live in North Carolina and that's where the boy will be spending his first out of state Thanksgiving with (sigh). I'm not going to lie, it's a tough one for me but so glad that I could invite him over to my brother's home.
Check out the interior:
That sentiment is seriously perfect! I'm sending it to my boy so that he can write a little note to them and then pop it in the mail.
So, I have a bonus card for you all....
cardstock: ranger watercolor stamps: essentials by ellen/thankful ink: ranger archival black other: peerless watercolors, pretty pink posh stitched duo 2
I initially filled in the background with a pale grey watercolor and then started filling in loads of color. Yes, I'm lovin' exposed corrugated cardboard. I have so much cardboard and it adds so much lovely texture and interest that you'll be seeing it a lot! I'm loving all the images in the Essentials by Ellen Thankful set!
I can't wait to see how you're inspired!
