With You

I've had this beautiful Mondo Hydrangea set from Essentials by Ellen since it was released. I've used it so much that I had to wash it today to get back the stickiness. But I never posted anything with it until today. Finally, I made a card with it that I like.

This was stamped on Strathmore Bristol smooth paper (very white and very smooth) and colored with some Altenew alcohol markers.  Die cut and adhered the flower and then added a sentiment and some hearts from Hero Arts' You are Loved Messages.  Disclosure: I did not pay for either stamp set or the die (but love them both!).

I'm entering this in the February Ellen Hutson Mix It Up Challenge, which is to mix Hero Arts with Essentials by Ellen products.

MOOD WHEN DONE = It's a cold and sunny day -- perfect for staying indoors and stamping. And now I'm off to tackle the treadmill!


  1. This is a beautiful card. I love the soft colors. Great job blending.

  2. Lovely card. I always look forward to seeing your creations.

  3. Gorgeous card, your coloring is sublime.

  4. Your card is just stunning with those colors. I would love to see your other creations with this set!

    1. thanks, but they never made it beyond the scrap pile. I was trying to hard!

  5. Sigh... I can't imagine what you've been making with this that you didn't like, but I'll tell you this is absolutely gorgeous! The pure, clean simplicity of it is exquisite! I hardly ever remember to pin, but I'm pinning this. I'm so in love with this card!
