Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge Guest

Happy Thursday friends!! 

Guess who is a Guest Designer over at at the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog today! ME, ME, ME! I woke up pinching myself to make sure this was actually happening and I'm so excited it is! 

What is the Pin-Sights Challenge you ask? 

The Pin-Sights Challenge is an inspiration challenge based on a Pinterest inspired piece to spark your imagination and creativity that will be held on the 3rd Thursday of every month!

To qualify, simply use any Essentials by Ellen product and create a project based on the inspirational piece. You can create anything.. A card, scrapbook layout, mixed media, altered art... The works.

We will select one player randomly to receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store! WOOT WOOT!

You have until October 27th to link up your projects.

Here is this month's board and it is AH-MAZING!

Everything about these pictures makes me happy! Fall is my favorite season and I loved making my card with all of this inspiration! Here is how I was inspired:

Oh my gosh! This is hands down one of my most favorite cards I've ever made! It was so easy to make using Essential by Ellen products! I created the background using leaves from the Thankful stamp set. They were stamped using distress inks and colored in using water for a water color look. I used a piece of vellum and tore it on all sides to fit on top of the card. I painted all of the same color distress inks on the vellum using water. The pumpkin is also from the same set and is embossed with gold embossing powder to help it pop! 

Oh I just love that gold! The sentiment is also embossed using gold embossing powder. After I looked at the card I wanted it to have more of a distressed look so I used Frayed Burlap to distress the card, vellum and the piece the sentiment was on. I finished off the card with gold sequins for more POP! 

Now it's your turn to join in on the challenge over at the CLASSROOM blog. You can find more details and the link to add your project to the gallery. Remember a random entry will be chosen to win a $50 gift certificate from the Ellen Hutson online store!! You can't be that at all!!
