Sorry if you are not seeing me around too much at the moment we are having some fun with friends that are staying (and I’m also working), so trying to squish life in around it.  Dinner party at my house tonight eeek, haven’t done this in a while, lots of cooking / baking and maybe a glass of Champagne.  Can’t wait!

Another publication share today, the call was to use white embossing powder, so I added some bright distress watercolours and had some fun!  The second card is playing with the same panel but I changed it up with the SSS die.

Video : Colour Ellie with ‘U’!

Today on my Colour with ‘U’  video I’m playing with my newish Dove blender pen and this time I tried using some simple watercolour pencils and it was a breeze!  I’ve also been having some die cutting sentiment fun and thought it would be a great card to use it on.

Video : Dove Blender Pen and Distress Inks at Scrapbook Boutique!

It’s something that I’ve had on my ‘to try’ list forever and finally took the plunge to buy the Dove Blender Pen.  I had an old blender that I used rarely and it didn’t work very well and I liked the idea that I can refill the Dove pen and that I can use it with so many different mediums, markers, watercolour pencils, inktense, and today I chose to start out using some Distress inks…..     now I’ve gotta try some others!

Today I’m using some fun TAWS stamps and I have some of the cutest papers in my stash and I’m seriously committed to using them and hence today bright cheery card was born.  I love that it looks real busy but really it’s a very clean & simple design.  I filmed as I created so you can watch.
