Essentials by Ellen Stamping Watercolor

All the Stars!

It’s Ellen Hutson release day, yay!!!! There’s such a great lineup this month — be sure to check out the whole release right HERE!

I’ve got THREE clean and simple New Year’s cards to share using allll THREE new starry dies and the awesome Hinged Number dies.

These are great cards to send to people who sent you unexpected Christmas cards — I’m still getting a few coming in! Or if you got behind on sending yours this is a great card to make — no judgement here! (Says the girl who sent Valentine’s Day cards one year she was so far behind…!)

First up, a wreath using the new EBE Circle of Stars:

Essentials by Ellen Circle of Stars

This one was super simple — and actually my fave of the 3! I just made a base card out of thick watercolor paper, and die cut the circle of stars without using a shim to get an embossed look. Then I die cut those numbers out of the middle.

Then I added some spots of color using the Hansa yellow light and new gamboge from the Daniel Smith Essentials set and then some clear droplets and that was that! Can’t get enough of the clear droplets these days, I kinda want to use them on everything!

Next up, the new Starry Night die!

I love this full card sized die!!!

This was another card that came together super fast. I used the same supplies as the previous card, plus the “happy” from the Snow Days stamp set — love that set snow much. :)

Last but not least, the new Star Trail die set:

For this card I mixed it up a little and cut out the hinged numbers — a great way to get more from your supplies! :) I also played around with the 2 blues from that Daniel Smith Essentials set.

Speaking of that Daniel Smith Essentials set, find a full writeup about it with a color mixing chart HERE.

Thanks so much for joining me today, and be sure to check out what the rest of the Ellen Hutson Design Ambassadors have come up with over on the EH blog!

Happy new year, all! Hope it’s your best year yet!
