You Made Flowers Using What? It’s a NEW one for Me & Some SAD News!

Do you adore layered die cut flowers? You may already know that I certainly do, and today I have a new idea to share!

And I have some sad news, Ellen Hutson is closing the warehouse doors after 17 years of amazing inspiration and support in our papercrafting industry. I wish Ellen all the very best and want to say a HUGE thank you for her support and encouragement over the years.

She is moving to be closer to family and you can help her quickly achieve this goal and SAVE $$$ at the same time, as she is clearing out the warehouse. Check out the ONLINE STORE HERE for the SALE! Keep an eye out though, there will be some of her fabulous designs still available at Amazon!


Check out these beautiful Layered Orchids, they are from the Essentials By Ellen collection at Ellen Hutson.

But there is something different about the first one… did you notice? The flowers are made from crepe paper!

And back to basics with my second design and it time for a cardstock version.

  1. Those made from crepe paper have an ethereal feel to them, Therese! Both absolutely gorgeous!
    I know you’ll miss your EH gig – I know I sure did! You’ve done a superb job of respresenting!

  2. Absolutely beautiful cards. Always loved your makes with this brands, especially the images with the little cars and scooters.

  3. I’m going to miss Ellen Hutson and all of the EBE designs. Placed my last order there a couple of days ago. 😢 As for your cards, I like them both! The first one is very soft and the second one is more fun. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I just love your card today. That paper is lovely. Ellen Hutson has been my favorite of the online stores since I discovered them. Great customer service and great products. I fell in love with the Pro sketch markers which I found there. In fact, you were the person who I saw first using the markers.

  5. I always wondered what layered die cut flowers would look like with crepe paper….mystery solved! Gorgeous! Thank you 🙂
    Next challenge, have you tried layered die cuts with colored vellum?
    I will miss Ellen Hutson’s shop. Always had such unique Essentials by Ellen stamps and dies. I love the Mondo, Leading Lady and Bear Ware series. Good Luck to Ellen in her next adventure!

    1. …mmm can’t remember if I have tried coloured vellum die cuts but definitely regular vellum, thanks for the challenge my friend lol. And yes, sad but happy news for Ellen!

  6. So sad to hear Ellen Hudson is closing shop, I don’t ship often but I do love her brand. Love your cards and doing the flowers in crepe so much more beautiful. Soft like real petals, love it xx

  7. It’s certainly bitter sweet but so happy for Ellen. Loved both the cards. The crepe paper orchids look so soft and life like. I so admire how you think outside the box when creating.

  8. Fabulous cards the crepe paper card is so pretty and delicate and the first so bright and bold.the colours pop beautifully against the black.
