Fab Friday 124 – Cozy Lady from Essentials by Ellen
This week we have a color challenge:
I decided to grab some stamps and matching dies I was given from Ellen Hutson LLC as part of my guest design spot this month. I thought the colors would lend themselves to a great Halloween/autumn card, and I was right! Lookie:
GOJUS! I had fun coloring these images with Prismacolor pencils. I used Neenah Desert Storm for the card base and images, but I used the Fresh Fig cardstock from Stampin’ Up for the embossed layer, for which I used a Cuttlebug folder I found at Joann.
I stamped the images with Rich Cocoa ink from Memento, but I used Fresh Fig for the greeting.
I originally was going to have my lady holding the pumpkin, but then his face didn’t show so well. So I switched to the coffee.
It wouldn’t be a Halloween card without a pumpkin!
I used a couple of Tangerine Tango enamel hearts from Stampin’ Up! up in the corner to add a little more love.
I couldn’t resist a little faux stitching around the image base with a Fresh Fig marker. And I dug into the stash and found some retired Tangerine Tango baker’s twine. I love my matchy-matchy!
I’ll admit, orange is not my favorite color. I can’t wear it because it makes me look like death warmed over, but I ended up loving this color combination!
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Gina K, Sizzix, and Blick Art Supplies. Stampin’ Up! links lead to my BFF Wendy Weixler’s store, whose friendship is something I highly value, and I’m always happy to throw business her way. She does not reimburse me for doing so. If you have your own demo, you can of course change over to them. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
