Hello and welcome to the Pattern Happy + Ellen Hutson LLC Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Pattern Happy and Ellen Hutson LLC - The CLASSroom blog!

I recently received my Pattern Happy supplies and oh my goodness...so much color and happiness!!!!!  I couldn't wait to dive in, here's how I was inspired:

So I started off with a panel from the Robots Mini Collection 6x6 paper pad.  Rainbow stars?!  Yes!  Please and Thank you!


I cut the Colorful Day Die in white + black.  I kept the black for my outline and colored up the white.

The smiley faces and sentiment are from the Colorful Day Clear Stamp set.

So much happiness! 

I whipped up a second card!  I started off with that fabulous rainbow chevron print from the Rainbows 6x6 Paper Pad.



I inked up the Bloom Builder Clear Stamp set and topped them off with enamel dots.  I combined the Hello Word Die with a sentiment from the Mini Greetings Stamp Set.


Now it's time to hop over to my Pattern Happy teamie, Carly Tee Minner!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have two projects to share with you that I made especially for today's fun hop!  My first one features the Hero Arts CM235 Mouse Tea Party set.  I think this is one of the cutest sets that was released in the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog!


My card also features the Hero Arts DI411 Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die.  At the time that I'm writing my post, there is one left in the shop!  This die is wonderful and works great with the dryer sheet method.  

TIP:  layer die, paper + then dryer sheet folded in half.  The bits will stick to the dryer sheet and minimize the crafty mess!

The images have been stamped with Hero Arts Intense Black and colored with alcohol markers.

My other card features the a2z Scrapbooking Hug In a Mug digital set.


I printed the iced coffees twice and made the sentiment really large.  I colored the images with alcohol markers.  You can't really tell from the photos but I did fill some of the ice cubes with glossy accents.  


Next up is the spectacular Kerry Urbatch!

Hero Arts: Antique Keys






 Hello!  Today I'm up on the Hero Arts blog featuring the Antique Keys Bold Prints:

I decided to whip up a card to post on my blog that uses the same stamp but in a different way:


I heat embossed the Antique Keys Bold Prints on a panel from the Midnight Mixed Layering Paper pack in white.  I placed an Earth Mixed Layering Paper panel that I cut a house from via the DI463 Nesting House Infinity Dies.  I couldn't resist using the Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies in the center.

The sentiment is from the CN242 Stealing My Heart set...I LOVE that stamp set!  Everything is nestled onto a PS768 Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock panel...just check out all of that texture.

Here's a sneak peek of my card up on Hero Arts blog:

Reverse Confetti: happy birthday to ewe



Hello + Happy Monday!  Did you have a great weekend?  I did but it always go by so quickly, doesn't it?  I have a fun card using Reverse Confetti products.


The All About Ewe set is so cute, isn't it?!  Let's start from the bottom and work our way up.  

I used an Avocado card base that I layered a panel from the Pattern Play 6x6 and Baby Blue cardstock.  The Scallop Stripe Panel makes a great palette to layer all my stamped images on.


I was inspired by The Paper Players:

Hello + Happy Sunday!  I'm here to share a thank you card that I made especially for my Momma:


Generally I make her floral designs but decided to go abit more graphic.  I write on a sticky note on the inside so that she can regift the card.
