Essentials by Ellen Summer of Stamping Kick-Off with Avery Elle Soak It Up Stamp Set

Hi Friends! Have you seen the news!? Yesterday was the first official day of the Essentials by Ellen Summer of Stamping which includes a month full of summertime releases and tons of cardmaking inspiration. Be sure to check out the Ellen Hutson Blog and IG Feed for lots more details and to play along with our IG Hops

To kick-off Summer of Stamping, Ellen Hutson released an exclusive Avery Elle stamp and die set called Soak it Up which is only available in the EH Shop. Today, I’m sharing two cards using ALL the cuties and the adorable floaty unicorn. 

I combined both cards with the Essentials by Ellen Scallops Designer Die for a faux-water effect by adding pretty Aqua Memory Box cardstock colors behind the scallops die cut. It cracks me up how you can add the paws and hooves to the critters so it looks like they are hanging on the inflatable and summertime waves. Cuteness OVERLOAD!!

For the Soak It Up Inflatable Birthday Card, I colored the images with an assortment of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

The Hello Sunshine card was colored with Pinks and Aqua Copic Markers. 

I completed each of the cards, by adhering the images to the scallop faux water die cut designs using liquid adhesive and thin foam adhesive squares. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today and be sure to stop by all month long for more Summer of Stamping Release Inspiration! Don’t forget to check out the Ellen Hutson Shop and Blog for more Summer of Stamping Details and chances to play along and win some prizes! 

Big Paper Hugs,
