Essentials by Ellen July Mix It Up Challenge

Decided to play along with July's Essentials by Ellen Mix it Up Challenge, which was to use an Essentials by Ellen and a Neat and Tangled product.

  • Stamped a background with a small, slightly wonky, double line circle stamp from Neat and Tangled's Dala Horse. using Altenew Warm Sunshine ink.  
  • Stamped this darling sentiment from Essentials by Ellen Love You So, designed by Julie Ebersole, with Altenew Persian Blue ink.
  • Colored a tiny wooden star, which the so nice and talented Laura Norris sent to me, with a yellow Copic marker and adhered.  I had to cancel a a get together with Laura when she was visiting DC with her family earlier this year and I'm still bummed...
  • That's it!
MOOD WHEN DONE = Delighted!


  1. love this Joan - wish i had that stamp set - i always tell my grandson he's my favorite (he's the only grandson and he just gives me this look when i say that!)

  2. CAS doesn't get much sweeter than this, Joan, love it!

  3. Super cute card and I like the tiny star you added!
