Essentials By Ellen New Release

Hello there!  I have a fun post to share with you today!  I have been in the throws of hurricane preparation for the last few days as hurricane Irma is due to pass right over top of my home later today.  It was so nice to be able to sit down and write a blog post and distract myself with something that I love!

I am so honored to have been asked to join in the latest Essentials By Ellen release from Ellen Hutson!  The cutest little Leading Lady is being introduced, and she, along with a bunch of other fabulous new goodies are available in the Ellen Hutson store today!  Read on to find out more!


Let me introduce Leading Lady - Baker Lady!  She is as cute as a button and this stamp set is perfect for holiday as well as everyday cards!  To create my card, I started off by watercoloring a background using shades of Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover distress ink onto a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper.  I added a strip of polka dot paper to the bottom of the panel to serve as the counter top for my little Baker Lady.  (Now I wish I had polka dot counters!)  I stamped and colored a bunch of images from the Leading Lady - Baker Lady stamp set, and then diecut them with the coordinating Baker Lady dies.  I paper pieced her apron and hair bow with some plaid paper, and popped everything up with foam tape.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, and mounted the panel on a red card base.  To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents.

Isn't she just so cute?! :)

Hope all is well with you and yours. Part of my hurricane prep including taking pictures for insurance purposes is needed. took more of craft room than the rest of the house put together. I was ashamed.
Love your card-your coloring is exquisite.
