Summer Cheers | Ellen Hutson + Pretty Pink Posh

I'm back with another project featuring the Ellen Hutson - Summer of Stamping - Week 3 - Pretty Pink Posh - Summer Circles.


I combined a couple products on this summery design.  I started with a bristol panel and used the PPP Layered Surfboards using Tattered Rose + Dried Marigold.  I trimmed it down a smidge and used an A2 panel of Bazzill - Chocolate Malt.

I stamped the Summer Circles and Summer Drinks on Neenah - 110 lb and colored the images with copics:

R0000 | R00 |R21
E93 | E95 | YR02
Y21 | YR21 | YR12
YG09 | G05
BG10 | BG11
BG13 | BG15
YR000 | E30
E34 | E13

The Summer sentiment has been heat embossed in gold on Essentials Vellum.  The Cheers has been stamped in Jet Black on Bazzill Pale Rose. 

 I used a bit of Wink of Stella of the ice cubes.

Happy Birdie Wishes | Reverse Confetti


Hey 'Fetti Fans, I'm up on the Reverse Confetti Blog today sharing this project:

This is going to my former Mother -in-law that turns 95 next month!

The Hummingbird set is gorgeous.  I love the variety of images that are included in the set.  Hummingbirds are my favorite birds and hibiscus are one of my favorite flowers.  

I snuck in a big leaf from the Tropical Leaves set.  The center circle is from the Circle Tag set.

All the images were colored with copics.

That's it for me, have a great weekend!

Coneflower Friend


I've said it once and I'll say it again and again, I'm no green thumb.  The Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower set is my kind of gardening!

My color palette was inspired by these Green Twister Coneflowers.  If you've been following me for any length of time, you'll know that green is my favorite color.  Add pink and I'm in preppy heaven.

I also added the Friend Honey Cuts and their Scallop A2 Card Frames.  The base is the Ellen Hutson - Essentials by Ellen - A2 Piercing Plate.

My cardstock is Concord & 9th:


I also added the Catherine Pooler inks:

Coral Cabana
Garden Party
Lime Rickey

This card is definitely NOT postal friendly.  Each layer of the flower is on foam adhesive.  Definitely a hand delivery type of card that will need to be over coffee.

Mondo Anthurium | Essentials by Ellen - Summer of Stamping


I'm back with my final project for Ellen Hutson Week Two Summer of Stamping.  Today I'm featuring the Mondo Anthurium.

Honestly, this is my type of plant, I'm such a black thumb.  My girl is the green thumb in the family.  I white embossed the image on Essentials by Ellen Vellum with Hero Arts White embossing powder.  the sentiment has been also heat embossed in white but on Concord & 9th Black cardstock.  

I went 80's preppy with an alternating color strip pattern using Concord & 9th Honeysuckle and Parsley.

Super easy smeasy fresh + fun!
