Ellen Hutson Design Team Blog Hop

Even as a seasoned card maker, I enjoy learning tips and tricks from other crafters. My favorite tip/trick is finding ways to add subtle embellishments to my cards that still keep things clean and simple. Not only that, I enjoy finding ways to incorporate colour without having to actually colour. 



I used the My Favourite Things Watercolor Wash Paper Pack as my background so I didn't have to do any watercoloring. I made sure to select colours that coordinate with each other. I embossed various elements from Essentials by Ellen Bohemian Flowers Stamp set and a frame from Mirror Mirror in white. I die cut the Bohemian Flowers using the coordinating dies and the Mirror Mirror elements with a stitched circle die. 




I layered all of the elements onto the card in a fun floral frame around the circle elements. Lastly, I added some Nuvo drops around the edges in matching colours to complete the card. 

A Little About Me...

Coffee or tea? Tea! 

I love green tea and fruity teas. I HATE COFFEE



How did you come up with your blog name? 

Well, it's my name so I can't say I'm very creative. I used to use an alias and was the Twilight Stamper. I think I thought I needed one since I didn't think my name was easy to remember. Twilight came from my favourite Close to my Heart ink (back when I was a consultant a Loooooooong time ago). 



Tell us one silly/random/interesting tidbit about yourself! 
I speak four languages! My brain gets exhausted sometimes since I usually speak English, French and German every day.

  15. Whoa...Justine!! This is just such a pretty and feminine take on the Bohemian Garden stamps! I love what you did with it. Okay, I love everything you do, but this one in particular.

  16. This is so beautiful Justine. I am in the process of making some sympathy cards to have on hand and I was at a standstill for what to do next on a particular card. THIS is just the idea I needed. I have a lot more white space on the top half and it needed something there. The cut circle with some pastel flowers (maybe vellum) would make it beautiful. TFS!

  19. I'm impressed but - you didn't tell us the fourth language? Don't dare tell me it's something crazy like Russian or Chinese. lol! Je parle juste assez français pour être dangereux, et quand j'apprenais ça me rendait confus de "penser" dans les 2 langues. Je ne peux pas imaginer 3 à la fois!
