Essentials By Ellen October Release Blog Hop Day 1-Cozy Lady


Hello! And Welcome to my blog:) How Exciting to be highlighting the COZY LADY stamp and Coordinating Die set being released TODAY at Ellen Hutson! Take a look ⇩⇩. Doesn't she seem like a kindred spirit; bosom buddy? and oh, so COZY?!? Love her scrunchy, comfy socks:)

I found coloring with Zig Clean Color Markers on the Cozy Lady set to be relaxing:) 

Other Essentials By Ellen used:  For the sentiment bloom. Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Mondo Magnolia by Julie Ebersole
I DO LOVE embellishing with Nuvo Dots.... Directly onto my finished cardfront:)


I took the Cozy Lady outdoors for my next card.

Colored again with Ziggys and surrounded with several die cut leaves, and other fall themed goodies found in the set. Each have their own coordinating dies for quick cutting. A soft flurry of falling leaves are stamped in the background with Sand Dunes Crisp Ink.

Stamped a vibrant background for my last card. and colored with Ziggys and Copic markers
Then I stamped the Cozy Lady in VERSAFINE INK PAD, VINTAGE SEPIA and trimmed her out with the coordinating die.  Popped her in front of the colored background and placed a Handmade tag from Altenew in her hands inked with a sentiment from the Cozy Lady set. And finished with the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Brushstroke Love by Julie Ebersole inked with the same Vintage Sepia pad above.

That's all from me today! I hope you have found this Cozy Lady set as sweet as I have:))

  15. I can so relate to the sentiments for the cozy lady. Now that she is being introduced, I hope that more sentiments will be coming out for her. My favorite stamps are always the ones with some type of critter and this release has a couple of them. Thanks for sharing your work!
