New Essentials By Ellen - Everyday Punnies

We've got another Essentials by Ellen release that's available now!! The two sets I'm using for these cards are Everyday Punnies and Everyday Doodles, and they're truly sets you could use every day. There are so many cute little illustrations, and the best thing, there is a hilarious pun or two to go along with each one of them!

This one uses the cactus and two of the punny sentiments to create a totally custom card for a friend who has been by your side forever.

This card, and actually the next two as well, are all created with one stamp and the same formula ... stamp one main image, and then stamp the image again all over the background. Makes things a lot easier when you're making multiples. The tiny flower I drew and cut out ... don't forget you can always add your own embellishments!

This sentiment on this one just CRACKS ME UP! And it's so darn true. Who doesn't need to be reminded of this every now and then? I don't recall seeing this sentiment before. I'm telling  you, this set is just full of gems.

Again, just stamping the main image and then stamping it again (in a lighter color) all over the background of the panel. The base of the card is a stencil I made using several cuts of the Skinny Stripes Die.

I'm not a drinker, but I love taking photos ... and I can't wait to send this to my cool friend who shares my love of photography. She will totally get a kick out of this one!

It's super clean and simple, which is perfect for letting all the attention rest on the fun sentiment.

If I didn't have Spring Break coming up, I may have walked away with a dozen cards! I had so much fun creating with this set. Stay tuned ... tomorrow I have two more cards featuring two different sets that are also just released. If you'd like to jump right to all the new sets, here's a quick link. Hope to see you then : )

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love them all Kelly! I like the contrast of the prickly cacti and rustic twine with the fancy gold sentiment on the first one. Yes, Ice-cream does equal happy in my book and I know a certain special photographer myself who would like your last card as much as I do!

  2. oh these are magnificent! Love them all Kelly!
    Can't wait to get my order!

  3. I love the idea of using the main image as a subtle background, Kelly. These are all so fabulous.

  4. Wow...these are all simply fabulous!
