Essentials by Ellen - New release Blog Hop!


 
 
 Welcome to the February 2017 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop!  I'm so excited to be Hopping along!  If you've arrived from Julie's Hop post, you're right on track ... imagine being tucked between  Julie Ebersole  and Kelly Griglione in a HOP?  No pressure there, right?? 
 

I’ll be showcasing several of the newest fab Essentials by Ellen products on my post today!  First up:  one of Julie Ebersole's darling new creations:  Oh, Deer! 
  

I've created a sweet little family scene, using Delicata Gold, and Versafine Smokey gray ink, and a little left-over die-cut Valentine:
 
Julie even included their darling little footprints!
 
I also had a bit of fun with the card-base... here's a little close-up to see the peek-a-boo split:
 
 
If you know me at all, you'll guess there is a sweet little message inside for the recipient - it has been SO hard not to pop this in the mail!
 
I had a great time with my next assignment:  Mirror, Mirror - by Brandi Kincaid:
 
 
 
 
AND my very first attempt at using Chibitronics!
Here is my card ... but you'll have to dash over to my IG page [mfergu01] to see it in action!
 
the perfect embossing folder for a bit of Hollywood glam!
 
Aren't they SO fun?!?!  Every single new product  in the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2017 line is fantastic!  You know I haven't stopped at two cards, right?  More soon, but for now ...
