What do you think?  Is this set a “must-have”, or WHAT!?

Let's take a look at a few more cards using stamp sets from the Essentials by Ellen Winter 2015 Release:

Love you So stamp set Essentials by Ellen

Love You So Stamp Set

with fun sentiments and hearts, this set will steal YOUR heart!  😉

I stamped the hearts in Versamark ink, then the sentiment in Versafine, then poured on Clear Embossing Powder and heated it.  I used an Aquapainter to add some water around and in the hearts, then touched some ink to the water puddles and let it move around and dry (with a bit of help from my heat tool!).

A few sequins and black cardstock finished it off (though, I should have used a full piece of black so the gaps didn't show on the sides).

Another card, this one a Shaker Card!!,  with the Love You So stamp set.

I stamped various images with Versamark, heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder and sponged over it (Clear Emboss Resist Technique!).

I used the Folk Hearts Dies to cut out the center heart and made it into a shaker card.

I used the other hearts to make this…

Diagonal Window Essentials by Ellen

This fun card uses the Diagonal Envelope Die – really innovative and if you are looking for something different for your card making, this is it!

Check back on Thursday, I'll have a video for you showing how to make this card and use this die.
