Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge with My Favorite Things

I'm finally making a card for the current Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge. You have to use Ellen Hutson products and products from My Favorite Things. On my card I used two stamp sets and one die set from My Favorite things - "Winter Warmth" for the background images and "Let's Get Cozy" for the Sentiment, and "Hot Cocoa Cups" Dies for the mugs. I also used the three little snowflake stamps from the Ellen Hutson set called "Holly Jolly" on the background.

To create the background, I stamped images from the stamps sets in Versamark Ink and then brushed on Perfect Pearls in the color of Perfect Pearl. This made the images a little shiny, they really catch the light in the pictures. In real life they aren't that bright. It's a great way to make a fun background. I saw the technique in a Jennifer McGuire video. I would like to it, but I watched a ton of her videos a few weeks ago when I got a new smart TV in my craft room and I'm not sure which one it was.

I used paper from my scrap paper box to make the mugs, hearts, and whipped cream images. To make the sentiment I heat embossed Zing Teal Metallic Embossing Powder. I can't believe how the embossing color matched the mugs!! This was a super fun card to make. I'm so happy for the inspiration. I haven't used any of these stamp sets or dies before today. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love these mugs (although it's hard to imagine being cold when it is hot here at the moment lol)!


I appreciate your comments.
