Essentials By Ellen Winter 2015 Release Blog Hop


Hello Friends!
Welcome to the Winter 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Blog Hop!  I have two cards to share today showcasing some of the new stamps and dies from this release.

My first card features Wish Big, this is a cute birthday set with a little birdie and hippo image.

WishBig_ChariMoss

I decided to practice some watercoloring when making this little card by heat embossing the images and then coloring with distress ink and water.  I added some color splatters on the woodgrain cardstock base.

My sceond card features the Love You So stamp set and the Folk Hearts dies.  I used new Lawn Fawn inks to stamp out the images from this new stamp set and decorate the heart die cut. 

LoveYouSo_ChariMoss

I added some splatters of tarnished brass distress stain and pearl perfect pearl mist on the background layers and added stitching detail around the heart with a gold gel pen.
