Ellen Hutson | Meet the Maker feat. My Favorite Things + Secret Sale!

I'm so excited to be featured on the Ellen Hutson blog today! I'm also taking over their Instagram stories for the day so I'd be honoured to have you all join me there. As part of my takeover, I have a very special secret sale for you so be sure to read 'til the end to find out what it is!

Today, I'm featuring products from My Favorite Things and, in particular, the most adorable set called Koala-ty Time. I started by colouring all of the images with a mix of Copic markers and Sketchmarkers. Sketchmarker is a new-to-me brand of alcohol markers and they're amazing! Those colours are represented in the leaves, hearts and little pinkish-purple t-shirts. 

After die cutting the images, I set them aside and prepared the background.  I cut a card base from white linen cardstock. Then used the Slanted Stripes Cover-Up to cut Concord & 9th cardstock in (left to right) Evergreen, Parsley, Oceanside, Aqua Sky and Sprout. You can also find these colours in the Assorted Pack, which I always keep on hand.

After assembling the background, I die cut some Clouds from vellum and position them at the top of the card. I also white heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and cut it using a tag from Blueprints 27, layering it on Dove cardstock. This style of tag could easily be created freehand or by using a quick trimmer and detailed using the Stitching Lines.

My second card uses the May Essentials Composition Challenge sketch (ends May 30th) and features the same five cardstock colours but in different proportions. This time, my background was made using the A2 Piercing Plate 2Essential 4-Bar Rectangles, Essential Circles and Essential Circles for Stitching.

Both the Evergreen rectangle frame and Aqua Sky circle frame were stacked three layers high for dimension. This sentiment was stamped with Nocturne pigment ink and clear heat embossed on vellum, again with a Dove cardstock layer behind it. On both cards, I added enamel hearts from Doodlebug's Love You More Shape Sprinkles. They were the perfect finishing touch!
