ReDesign on a Dime: Julie Ebersole

I've been a huge fan of Julie Ebersole for many years.  Her Hello Monday videos for Ellen Hutson are hands down my favorite papercrafting videos.  Professional, useful tips, and a dynamite project -- her videos are fabulous.   Plus her personality shines through. 

I'm thrilled to see her working in the industry.  Hugely deserved.

Every card she makes has a light and airy feel that I would LOVE to be able to emulate.  I don't think of Julie as the Queen of Clear and Simple.  Rather, Julie is the Queen. 

The hardest part of ReDesigning a Julie creation was to select one, since I love everything she makes.  So I decided to just go with the last thing she made at the time I was looking,  which was this Flower Gard card for Hero Arts

Here is Julie's card, with mine, ReDesigned without spending a dime.  Thanks, Julie, for letting me post a copy of your card.

I encourage you to check out Julie's card on the Hero Arts blog (link above), where she's done a great video on how to make it.  Watch her cover the frame with glossy accents -- smooth as butter.  I cannot do that, so mine is lumpy...and this isn't the first one I made.  

Wish I had some small solid flowers with stems, because the flowers with stems in different directions provide the illusion that the flowers are falling down the card.  But, I didn't, so I went with what I had -- that's the whole idea!  I also switched up the color palette 'cause I'm in a bright mood.



Stamps:  Impression Obsession Hydrangea and PTI Mini Blooms
Paper:  Neenah Solar
Ink:  Hero Arts Tomato, Butter Bar and Green Hills (they bleed through on Neenah)
Other:  Silhouette (to make frame), Copics -- red and black -- to color the paper, Glossy Accents, rhinestones, adhesive, paper trimmer

I love your new ReDesign on a Dime feature; it is a great idea and we get bonus inspiration. Your card is just as delightful as Julie's.

Julie was the original clean and simple gal. I have always loved her work, but could never seem to pull off the style. You, however, have mastered it. I like the idea that you're working with what you have. Limited supplies are sounding better and better...
