Crafty Friends: Essentials by Ellen

Welcome to the monthly Crafty Friends Blog Hop!  We feature a different brand each month, with a limited time COUPON CODE for our viewers. How awesome is that?!

This month, the coupon code is for the Essentials by Ellen line at Ellen Hutson. This is a line of products exclusive to Ellen Hutson, and there is some really cute stuff in it!

Check out this video to see how I used these stamps.

OK, friends- this is a photo heavy post. Hang in there!

The Voices in My Head stamp sets were a bit of an impulse buy, but I cannot resist a snarky stamp set! I am totally going to use this in a sarcastic way for a family member. Our love language is sarcasm and puns!

Now, there is a word bubble die set that coordinates with this set, and I may have to purchase it. But in the mean time, I am using other methods to give that effect. On this card, I created a word bubble with the watercolored background. 

The sentiment in Copper heat embossed over the watercoloring. Spatters, of course. 

The woman is heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Gold Night Shift embossing powder. I am in love with this stuff. And no, I don't get any commission on Brutus Monroe stuff. I just love several of his products. The Night Shift embossing powders are delicious!!

OK, enough about the embossing powder. The woman is watercolored also, with Daniel Smith and Mijello Mission Gold watercolors.

Inside, more snark in Copper heat embossing. 

This card was going to be a clean card. But let's just say anti-static powder tool was not used for partt of the embossing. Doh!

But this card has a slightly less harsh tone. But is still funny as hell! And totally describes me.

The clouds were stenciled on with Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. If you wanted to use Hero Hues you could use Pool Party, Splash, and Blue Hawaii and get nearly the same palette. This was spritzed with Pearlized water (Perfect Pearl in water in a spray bottle).

I bet you can't even tell there were embossing powder speckles, can you!

The embossing powder used on this card is Blue Night Shift. Sigh, love.

Trinity Slimline Scalloped die, and Concord and 9th Unicorn dies for the cloud edge.

And more clouds and another sentiment on the inside. You like?

That's it this time! Make sure you go do a little shopping- who can resist a coupon?!
