(This is my Second Post for today!! To find my Newton's Nook Designs March Release Post Please Scroll Down!! THANKS!! =)


I'm stopping in to share the Card that I have made for the FUN New Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge that are being hosted over on the Ellen Hutson Classroom Blog!! =) I was SO EXCITED when I saw that they were going to be Hosting these and I was even more EXCITED I was able to find some time to create something!! =) The Challenge was to combine Products from both the Essentials By Ellen and Hero Art onto one Project!! I wanted to create a Card using one of the Hero Arts Wood Stamps Many Blessing I had gotten Last Year, but it had gotten packed away when we moved and I forgot about it!! So when I was unpacking and found it, I KNEW this was the Challenge I wanted to use it for!! I decided to go with a Country Feel beings both the Stamp and the FUN Ellen Home & Hearth Die Set that I used have that sort of feel to them!! I stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using some of my FAVORITE WoW Sierra Glitter Embossing Powder!! I wanted it to Pop alittle more, so I took a .3mm Copic Liner Marker and added some Shadow Lines!! I then took some Hero Arts Soft Sand Shadow Ink and blended it out alittle so it wasn't so Stark!! Then I Paper Pieced the Die Cuts to create a FUN Scene!! I added a Shadow to them too just to help give them some weight beings the Sentiment stamp is such a Large one!! I used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker and added some Sparkle to the Hearts, Windows and Trees!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!!  =)

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
