Ellen Hutson | Essentials by Ellen Tricks for Treats Week

This week, Ellen Hutson Design Ambassadors are sharing more projects using the Fall + Halloween Release. I've made a matching card and tag set using 6 of the new release items. Even though I used so many products, I kept my designs clean and simple.

I had a lot of fun playing with the Tiny Stars Background, which is a foiling stamp. On the card, I used lavender petal hot foil on Gina K white layering weight cardstock; you can see the green hot foil on vellum in the background. I combined both the lavender petal and green hot foils on the Farmhouse Tags.

I also used the Essentials Stars dies with the A2 Piercing Plate 2 to create texture. There are two layers of licorice twist cardstock and the silver glitter outlines are stacked on two layers of Neenah heavyweight for extra dimension.

On the card, I used Catherine Pooler's Grass Skirt ink pad and the ink-to-paper technique to create a small panel of green cardstock, which I used to heat emboss a sentiment from Tag It - Halloween, then die cut it using the Nice of You Die.

On the tag, I heat embossed the sentiment from Tag It - Halloween on sour grape cardstock die cut using the Farmhouse Tags, which were layered with licorice twist cardstock and tied with midnight twine. I created a shadow layer for the ghosts and bats from Halloween Boo-quet on sour grape cardstock and licorice twist cardstock for the card and tags, respectively.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
