Essentials by Ellen June Release!

The new Essentials by Ellen release is available now - only at! And I am thrilled to say I am playing a small part in it, by getting to create with one of the brand new releases, Pressing Thoughts by Brandi Kincaid! This is a beautiful pansy set that also comes with a number of mix-and-match sentiments for different occasions. Here's my card: 

I wanted to let that pressed pansy stem shine, so I started by blending three shades of ink on my card panel, Bellini, Tiara and Melon Ice, all by Catherine Pooler. The pansy is stamped then embossed with some clear sparkle embossing powder. Next I trimmed the panel, adding a fancy border to the right side. The sentiment is also stamped in black and embossed.  To add some extra interest to the card base, I added some diagonal striped patterned paper. Finally, all that was needed was a few clear drop embellishments! 

This is just one set in the June Essentials by Ellen release - you can find the full release here

Your fancy border panel, stripes background, clear drops and pretty ink combination are a wonderful stage for the stars-of-the-show pansies! Gorgeous card...absolutely!
