My Favorite Essentials By Ellen Set..ummmm SETS!


 Hello and Welcome to my stop on the Blog Hop celebrating 11 years of Ellen Hutson LLC. These are a FEW of my Favorite Essentials By Ellen Stamp and Die sets.  I say few, because I could not choose just one:) 
Bohemian Garden by Julie Ebersole and Wild Garden Dies were my first purchase from the Essentials By Ellen products.


 I paired them up with my favorite WORD Die MANY THANKS.



Just a hint of my newest FAV....CONCERTINA TAG die BY JULIE was used as a stencil for inking with Altenew Crisp Inks.


While inking up the pretty Wild Garden Dies, I realized that a second card need to be made utilizing the pretty floral silhouette left behind.
This time, I stacked the tails of the CONCERTINA TAG die to create one long tag and added the JOY in Starlight Crisp Ink. Don't you think the poofy bloom from Bohemian Garden looks like a snowflake on the background panel?  A layer of Vellum helped tone down the "snowstorm" behind the tag.
As always, I embellished with NUVO drops, on both cards..because, I'm a #Nuvodropjunkie!

Your next stop is Kittie Caracciolo

  2. LauraJane I love your ingenious use of that concertina tag! Spectacular! It has been far too long since I've used either of your favorites... thanks for reminding me of their beauty, in such a beautiful way. [and that I don't have that many thanks die - how did that happen?]
