Ellen Hutson | Essentials by Ellen | New Stamps & Dies from Brandi Kincaid






Happy Sunday!  I'm so excited to shared some super fun new products released today by Ellen Hutson.  Brandi Kincaid has new products that are being added to her Leading Ladies collection.

First up is the new Essentials by Ellen, Leading Ladies - Teacher Lady by Brandi Kincaid:


So I'll explain what I did and the story behind who the card is going to.  I racked my brain about some type of school or teacher type themed paper I could use and then spied the notebook style in the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow set.  I trimmed it down and use a hole punch to finish it off.

Chuckling, I color the leading ladies' outfits as I would personally wear them.   Gotta love the jeans, denim shirt, orange sweater + black flats, perfect.  I stamped a bunch of the items in the set, like the book, notebook, ruler, glue and mechanical pencil.  I stamped a sentiment on the notebook.


The water bottle is from the Essentials by Ellen, Leading Ladies - Woodsy Lady by Brandi Kincaid.  Yes, there is a perfectly awesome mug in the Teacher Lady set, this is going to a non-coffee drinker (GASP). 

I really wanted to incorporate the World's Best Teacher sentiment so I used the Lawn Fawn Mini Picture Frames Lawn Cuts.

A bit of background on the card....Darin's daughter is going into her 2nd year of teaching this fall.  She has found the perfect job and I couldn't be happier for her.  I had the opportunity to volunteer in her classroom, actually for a field trip to the Space Needle/Seattle Science Center.  It was so fun to 'see her in action'.  Her kids loved her and you could really tell that she was enjoying herself.

How lucky to be in an occupation that you love and that you excel at.  I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up...LOL.

I'm linking up my card to the Inspired by Challenge:


Next up is Essentials by Ellen, Leading Ladies - Medical Lady by Brandi Kincaid:


So yes, I combined here with the following other friends (from left to right):


The sentiment is a combo from the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps - Be Strong by Brandi Kincaid + Essentials by Ellen dies - Strong by Brandi Kincaid

I was talking to my friend and walking buddy, Laura about an idea of combining several of the Leading Ladies on one card with an empowering sentiment.  It reminds me of this quote:

Here's to Strong Women.
May we know them
May we be them.
May we raise them.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!
