Essentials By Ellen July Release Blog Hop - Interactive Submarine


Hello, and welcome to the Essentials By Ellen (EBE) July Release Blog Hop! We're pretty excited that all the new EBE stamp and die sets you may have seen on Instagram this week are finally available to hop into your shopping cart! You may have come from my dear friend Ardyth's blog, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with Adelina


My absolute favorite from this release is the Subbing In set (with coordinating dies) by Brandi Kincaid. It's got the cutest little ocean critters that you can use to build a detailed under-the-sea scene with. The jellyfish in the window of the sub kills me! You get a few corals, some fish, critters, punny sentiments, and of course this adorable submarine. On the bottom of the sea floor I used another new set of dies, the Wave Dies.


To supplement some of the ocean scene, I used the seaweed from Otter Ware, and the tiny school of fish from S'Whale. Love how these sets are all compatible. You might be able to tell from the slight glare on the submarine windows, but I cut out the center of the windows and backed them with some clear acetate.


Because I wanted to make this card interactive, and because I wanted the submarine to appear to be diving down to greater depths in the ocean, I selected a wavy track from the Swing N Slide die set. It really gives the sub a fun motion! Would you like to see?



The cartoonish style of this sub fits with the cartoonish movement of its diving … perfect match!
