Essentials by Ellen January 2018 Release – Arctic Pals
I was so pleased to be asked to do another guest design spot for Ellen Hutson LLC this month, and when I saw the release, I was so excited! I love all the sets and dies in this release, so when they told me I got to pick what I wanted to feature in this post, it was so hard! But I got an idea, and I ran with it! Lookie:
STINKIN’ CUTE! I love all the animals in this super cute set, and the penguin on his belly gave me a great idea using the Swing N Slide dies from Ellen Hutson.
He just slides right down to dive in the water! Look at this action:
I created my background with Distress Oxide inks. I stamped these cuties with Versafine Onyx ink and heat embossed with clear, then colored them with Copic markers.
I added some Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter drops in the water to add a bit of shine and bling.
This is so fun! I love these dies combined with this stamp set…I can’t wait to play with them some more!
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.
