Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge

Ellen Hutson is running an Essentials by Ellen Mix it Up Challenge for January -- use an Essentials by Ellen and a My Favorite Things item in one card.  So I combined the images from Essentials by Ellen Wish Big with a sentiment from Pretty Poppies by My Favorite Things.

This turned out exactly as I had hoped (how often does that happen?).  Started by speckling the card with watercolor paints (Kuretake Gansai Tambi).  Stamped the candles and birthday hat and colored with Tombow markers.  Added the sentiment, which is popped up with dimensional foam and hightlighted with Little B washi tape. 



  1. Fantastic card! I love this trend of little images all over the card - it always looks so fun and happy!

  2. I love the way it turned out. Cute party hats and candles, with just the right amount of paint splatters/speckles/droplets.

  3. Very cute and cheerful and I love that! The splatters and Washi tape are great details that make a world of difference, too. Love your colors.

  4. Adorable, the "stamp your own cardstock" look is really fun!

  5. I love this card you made!!! Very fun and pretty!

  6. J.B. this is worth a celebration! Adorable, right down to the last candle!
