Hello, and welcome to the Holiday 2016 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop!!
If you’re new to my blog, welcome!! If you arrived here from Emily Leiphart’s blog, you’re in the right place!! If you arrived here out of order, PLEASE be sure and click on through to the Ellen Hutson LLC CLASSroom Blog, where you’ll find the full list of hop stops!
I’m showcasing several of the new stamp sets and dies on my post today! Let’s get started, shall we?
So my first project features the new Antlers Die, as well as stamped and die cut images from the new Season to Sparkle Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I love glittery antlers – I think this cool holiday trend is here to stay. And gold with white just makes my heart happy. The dangling snowflakes from the Season to Sparkle Stamp Set add a touch of elegance to this card that I think is super cool. I’ve included a bit of a surprise for the lucky recipient of this baby. Check it out!
BOOM!! How fun is that?!! I included some Chibilights behind the image panel to make the snowflakes light up! I don’t have time to give a full tutorial here, but believe me when I tell you, these lights are so fun to play with! Here’s a still shot of what the simple circuit looks like behind the image panel (I actually built the simple circuit on the card base so as to keep the layers from getting too thick – all of the “mess” is hidden by the image panel):
Fun, right?!! Okay, for my second project, I got to play with the new Tree Farm Stamp Set and Tree Farm Dies. Oh my cuteness!! Brandi Kincaid’s new designs are a wonderful addition to the Essentials By Ellen line!! And the project that I created:
Check out that hilarious and adorable hedgehog! Is he not so stinkin’ cute?!! And the Tree Farm Stamp Set is chock-a-block FULL of adorable images like Mr. Hedgie, there! Again, no time for specific details – we want you to enjoy the rest of the hop!! I’ve linked up the products that I used for both projects below.
