Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge

Hello friends! 

It's finally Friday and we've reached the weekend. I am playing along with the brand new challenge hosted by Ellen Hutson using the Essentials by Ellen line. 

I am so excited about a brand new challenge using these products as they are some of my favorites! Here is the photo we were given to use for inspiration. 

I love that stool and those pillows. I need to find out how I can get them NOW. But until then I have made a card to help with my obsession. 

I started out with a 4.25 x 11 piece of white yardstick from WPlus9 (my new favorite card stock) and scored it at 5.5 to make it a top folding card. I then masked off lines with washi tape and used black ink to fill in every other line to make these beautiful stripes. 

I used a few hearts from different Essentials by Ellen sets to die cut and heat emboss with gold. I also die cut the word love and heat emboss with the same gold. 

To continue with the gold theme, I used the starburst stamp from the Merry & Bright set to stamp and emboss directly on the card. I added a piece of white thread to wrap in a loose circle and then glued the die cut word on top. 

I used some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to spread amongst the hearts, rounded the bottom edges and called this card done. I love these colors together. Yes, I'm still thinking about that stool and those pillows. Just fantastic. 

Here is a close up of those gorgeous hearts with the gold embossing powder. 

You can find out all the information regarding this new challenge HERE and play along if you can. I have listed and linked all of the products used below. If you have any questions or thoughts, please leave me a comment. I do love hearing from you. 

Have a great day,
