Ellen Hutson Blog Hop: No Peeking!
Hello and welcome from the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog!
For today's mini hop, I am so excited to get in the holiday spirit a bit and share one of the stamp sets I designed for this release - No Peeking!
I used this sentiments set to create a simple, colorful card as well as a set of gift tags created with the Concertina tag dies.
For the card, I used my favorite new technique of striping white cardstock with colorful washi tape as a base. I embossed the sugar and spice sentiment stamp on a piece of red paper with opaque white powder so the words would really pop.
I couldn't wait to pair Julie's Concertina tag dies and sentiment stamps together, but was lacking colorful cardstock, so to give myself a base, I played with watercolors in various colors, making my own colorful paper.
I used the same opaque white embossing powder for the sentiment stamp, and I LOVE the result. Now I want to made a whole basket of gift tags to use this season.
And last, but definitely not least, I wanted to use the Baker Lady stamps to make a gift for a young baker in my life, so I created a simple recipe card template in Photoshop, leaving a space to use the stamps on the side. I made sure to leave all the stamps in basic waterproof black ink so that they are color and paintable for a gift that's also a fun activity. I think a set of colored pencils along with these cards is perfect for my young budding baker friend. Adding one of these watercolor tags was the simplest, and sweetest packaging.

I have so many more ideas for how I want to use this set, especially alongside the Baker Lady, but for now, there's plenty more inspiration on the hop, so head over to Julie's blog to see what lovely things she's created!
