Essentials by Ellen October 2020 Release!

 

I know your hopping has been fun so far - so much to love in our October 2020 Release from Ellen Hutson, LLC!  If you've arrived here from the fabulous Lisa Spangler's blog, you are right on cue!  If this is your first stop, welcome!  You'll want to continue, as there are fun prizes to be won by one lucky hopper - more on that later.

I cannot wait to share with you the cards I've made using products from this release:  Merry Little Christmas, Birch Tree dies, and Snow Globe!  Ready, set, go!

[By the way ... who ever said the back side of a card can't be fun, too?  That's where the fun trail begins - the back of my card!]


Ready for the front? EBE Birch Tree Dies 
are the perfect woods by my cabin!  Those snowy
hills were debossed with EBE Landscapes dies.


While I'm being a rebel ... here's a way to make the inside of your card the star!


Pretty clean, and simple, right?
Open the card ... and see all the sparkle!

You might even see a little background if you look closely - compliments of

Love the house to house, maybe I'll try something new this year!

Anita in France said...

How fun, Michele ... cute, clever, creative ... the snow globe is a delight (and such a lovely surprise inside) ... and your sweet cabin scene is fantastic! Think you'd need a bigger car to fit in everyone who wanted to come visit ... whether they came from the back of the card ... or further! Hugs, Anita :)

Ros Crawford said...

I'm absolutely loving your creations with these goodies.. Every one is wonderful!

To grandmother's house we go! Or to her cabin in the woods. Or maybe her little sparkly village in the snowglobe. You are remarkable, Michele. I just sit back in awe of what you dream up when you are creating. Wow!

These are all wonderful. The cabin in the woods is my fav. LOVE it!

LOVE your cards but the snow globe - fabulous! I love your new idea of a shaker card. I may have to try to make and maybe use a piece of acetate for the globe. Thank you for sharing.

How interesting to see the ride start from the back of the card and continue to the front! Adding the debossed lines to the snowy ground is clever and effective!

That birch tree cover plate is so versatile. That's on my must have list.

Ms. Tamp said...

I like the cabin scene. Nice sample shares.

Cynthia said...

Just WOW! I love your creativity, putting the little car on the back of the card to start the journey to the front of the card was just fabulous. So so adorable and fun? And the snow globe being a sneak peek to the inside of the card was a fantastic idea too, so different than just a window/shaker type card. I will have to start following your blog for more creative ideas.
