Summer of Stamping with Pretty Pink Posh | Essentials by Ellen

Have you heard the news?!  Ellen Hutson LLC is in their 3rd week of 2021 Summer of Stamping!  What does that mean?  That means we're teaming up with Pretty Pink Posh!

Yesterday we kicked it off with a brand new set by Pretty Pink Posh - Summer Circles.

I was able to whip up two cards, here's my first one:

This combines Summer Circles with:

Pretty Pink Posh - Summer Borders
Essentials by Ellen - Cake

I used the following copics:

YR02 | YR65
Y21 | Y23
YG00 | YG01
BG0000 | BG10
E51 | E31

The cardstock I used is Concord & 9th's Marmalade.

I'm loving how this next card turned out:


The white base used the A2 Piercing Plate.  The rainbow strips are:

Concord & 9th - Ballet Slipper
Concord & 9th - Grapefruit
Concord & 9th - Buttercup 
Concord & 9th - Sprout
Concord & 9th - Aqua Sky
Catherine Pooler Ink - Sweet Sixteen [direct to paper]

The sentiment is from the Essentials by Ellen - Good Day Set.

I hope that you check out the Instagram hop it all starts HERE.  The direct links to the instagram accounts are available on the Ellen Hutson blog.

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!

Kona Coffee | Essentials by Ellen - Summer of Stamping


I'm back with another project using some of the newest sets by Ellen Hutson for their Summer of Stamping!

Yeah, I had to whip up a caffeinated design:

My ink blended background is:

Speckled Egg
Broken China
Antique Linen
Vintage Photo

I'm always inspired by the blended Ink backgrounds by people like Carly and Samantha Mann that I've been trying to incorporate them more into my designs.

The sentiment is:

Classic Block Alpha
Coffee Honey Cuts - Honey Bee Stamps

Today's card features the Aloha set and the Tilt 'N Rock!  I tried to tape a reel but honestly it probably would have made you carsick LOL.  I HIGHLY recommend Julie's YouTube HERE.

I snuck in the coffee cup from It's a Date.

That's it for me today!
