Essentials By Ellen New Release: Big Scripty Hello Die

Hello Folks! Time for round 2 of the new Ellen Hutson Mondo Gerbera Daisy set! If you couldn't tell by the five cards I shared yesterday, I fell madly in love with this set and have THREE more cards to share with you today : )

I've made this daisy into a long-stemmed gerbera daisy that takes up the length of the card by stamping the petals off the top edge, and then extending the stem with my felt-tipped marker to the bottom of the card.

The sentiment is a new die that's also being released this month! It's the appropriately named Big Scripty Hello Die and comes with two layers ... an outline and a thin script. Here I've cut both out of white cardstock and layered them together. Just enough attention so you see the sentiment, but I wanted to keep most of the attention on this gorgeous flower (hence the white-on-white).

 I wanted to try another card with this concept, so I stamped the flower in the same spot, extended the lines, and used a different shade of my favorite Altenew watercolors to color the petals. The Hello die this time is used as a leaf on the side of the stem. Since it's the same color as the stem, it also doesn't compete for attention with the flower too much. Just what I was looking for.

 I think these would be a fun set of cards to make, with different shades of color for the flower.

This last card is similar to a card I shared yesterday, but I added this new hello die across the top of the card. 

I cut the word from black foam, and then layered the fancy gold metallic paper on top. The secondary sentiment is cut from a strip of black cardstock, and then I folded and snipped the ends to make a banner. It's adhered to the base in the middle to give it a nice curve, so I left the ends loose so that it would lay flat for mailing or storage.

Well that's all I've got for the mondo daisies right now ... it was sure fun to play around with them this week! I really do appreciate how approachable the coloring seems to be with this flower ... white, one color, many colors, whatever you're in the mood for, it will all look good.

Here's the whole collection!

Thanks so much for looking, again : )

  4. I did it!! I took the plunge and bought the daisies. I love the blooms off the edge like that, Kelly, and the green 'hello' along the stem is genius. When they arrive I hope I have time to make as many cards as you did.
