Crafty Friends Blog Hop – Featuring Ellen Hutson!


Welcome!  I’m so glad you’re hopping with the Crafty Friends today!  We hop each month featuring a favorite company…and this month’s feature is Ellen Hutson!  There’s SO MUCH to love about this company…and guess what?  They’re helping us celebrate the Crafty Friends with a 20% discount when you shop Ellen Hutson Essentials Line through any Design Team Member.  Check out the details below!



I chose to work with the Mondo Oak Leaf stamp set and Mondo Oak Leaf dies…both by Brandi Kincaid, Essentials by Ellen.  Now…if the large leaf image and die aren’t fabulous enough…just get a look at that acorn image!  I love it all so much…so I got to work for this fun card!



I started by stamping the front panel several times with the acorn image…and then added the sentiment…all in black ink.  I heat embossed the large oak leaf image on vellum cardstock using black powder…and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I also cut the oak leaf in black cardstock…layering it under the embossed, vellum image.



I cut a large circle in gingham paper and placed it on the card panel…added the layered leaf image and several enamel dots…and distressed the edges.  I placed the panel on the card base…and tied it all up with multicolor twine.



Thank you so much for hopping with the Crafty Friends.  And now…hop over to see what my talented, Crafty Friend Sara has for you!  And in case you need it…here’s the hop list!
