Fancy Thanks stamp set Essentials by Ellen

Fancy Thanks Stamp Set – Stamped and Watercolored Technique Video Tutorial:

What do you think?  Is this set a “must-have”, or WHAT!?

Let’s take a look at a few more cards using stamp sets from the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2015 Release:

Love you So stamp set Essentials by Ellen

Love You So Stamp Set

with fun sentiments and hearts, this set will steal YOUR heart!  ;)

I stamped the hearts in Versamark ink, then the sentiment in Versafine, then poured on Clear Embossing Powder and heated it.  I used an Aquapainter to add some water around and in the hearts, then touched some ink to the water puddles and let it move around and dry (with a bit of help from my heat tool!).

A few sequins and black cardstock finished it off (though, I should have used a full piece of black so the gaps didn’t show on the sides).

Love You So stamp set Essentials by Ellen

Another card, this one a Shaker Card!!,  with the Love You So stamp set.

I stamped various images with Versamark, heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and sponged over it (Clear Emboss Resist Technique!).

I used the Folk Hearts Dies to cut out the center heart and made it into a shaker card.

I used the other hearts to make this…

Folk Hearts

Video tutorial on the above card coming to StampNation TODAY!

Diagonal Window Essentials by Ellen

This fun card uses the Diagonal Envelope Die – really innovative and if you are looking for something different for your card making, this is it!

Check back on Thursday, I’ll have a video for you showing how to make this card and use this die.
