You can imagine my delight when Ellen Hutson, LLC added two gorgeous shades of gray cardstock to the shop. You really have to feel it to believe it! Slate gray, and Oyster gray, have truly won my heart!
Not only do they make great card bases, because of the 100# weight, they emboss just beautifully, too. I've misted the paper with my Ranger Mini Mister prior to embossing with a few of my many embossing folders - I have more than 60!
The card stock has just enough 'tooth' to use it for colored pencil work...

White, Ultramarine, Indigo Blue, Light Cerulean Blue, and Silver
The dark, rich Slate matches my favorite gray ink perfectly … which also happens to be Copic friendly!

No matter how you cut, emboss, color, or create with these gorgeous gray card stocks, the results will make you a gray-lover, too!
Thanks for stopping by!
big time, smile... =]
You bet I do...whether it's gray or grey. I do love that Slate but isn't the Oyster on the warm side?
Wow, Michele ... what a gorgeous array ... your love of those delicious greys simply shines through each beautiful, perfectly executed design ... stunners, each one! Already a grey lover ... these simply emphasise that love! Hugs, Anita :)
I'm blown away on a cloud of stunning inspiration!! These are all spectacular, Michele!! Hugs, Darnell
Michele - what a stunning array of fabulous-ness. Those grays do look awesome when highlighted by your stunning creations. WOW.
Gray never looked so chic! I'm blown away by the pencil coloring--can't wait to try this!
OH my goodness, you must have been in heaven while designing all of these! They're all vision of gray loveliness!
Oh you were on a creative high here my friend. Gorgeous grays and gorgeous cards! Your pencil coloured piece is beautiful!
I can see you were on a creative roll with all this gorgeous cardstock and fabulous goodies! Hands down, you are the embossing folder QUEEN and I really love the deep texture on your first card! I'm also smitten with your pencil work on the whale and how beautiful your silver embossing works with this shade of gray...WOW! You have really out-done yourself with this post, Michele...Bravo!!!
All are fabulous gray cards! Especially love the first and second♡ I'm in awe of your creativity, Michele ;)
gorgeous...gray is my favorite! Love your projects. I happened to pop those two packs in my last Ellen order.
These look like some awesome shades of gray, Michele. Adore the coloring on the whale card. And the embossing! Your misting sure helps. They are crisp and clean and so detailed. Wow! Thanks for sharing and showing off how pretty gray can be! :) Hugs!
You should be in advertising, Michele. You know just how to promote and show off products in a most creative way. I love the clean simplicity of your cards with the texture to add interest.
Wonderful cards - all of them. I too love gray and tolerate my gray/white hair. teehee
Embossing folders for the win!!!!! I love every one of these cards, just stunning.
I love grey's too, but then again I love all colors. lol So hard for me to have one favorite. These grey's are beautiful for sure and so are all your cards! I'm in love with each one! I too have a ton of embossing folders and need to use them more than I do. I know, shame on me! Anyway, beautifully done my friend! Hugs, Brenda
Bet you were in heaven creating with these wonderful grays. I especially love the blue whale, so beautifully colored on the darker cardstock!
What a fantastic array of creative cards, Michele! The Slate Gray and the Oyster Gray must be very happy to be laid under your creative spell. The dry-embossed panels look like pieces of sculpture art. The pencil colored whale looks so cool! Love the color combo. Hideko xx
I agree, these look amazing and I can't remember if I ordered these or not... but if I did't I will have to lol. Totally swooning over the whale card design (actually who am I kidding, I am loving them all)!
So much to love about the beautiful projects you shared here. And, unfortunately, you have put several things on my wish list, too! You devil! What is the geometric impression plate in your second card? Looks like some sort of optical illusion.
Those grays are gorgeous and you have created some beautiful cards to showcase them. Note to self: I do not need more gray cardstock. I do not need more gray cardstock...
I love grey cardstock, its on the colour I buy often (apart from white). I only have about 6 embossing folders so must buy some more, have a long way to go to 60!! All beautiful projects, especially love the second card and reminds me that I have that embossing folder too!!
Well Michele you have totally rocked my socks with these cards, I can see why you are in love with the new greys, simply put they look stunning. Your card designs make it of course from those wonderful embossed backgrounds to the coloured whale and wonderful floral tape card. All wowww
