Did you know that today is World Cardmaking Day? It’s pretty much every crafter’s dream holiday. An excuse to lock the door and get knee deep in cardstock and glue…or in the case of today’s post, an excuse to visit a ton of blogs that are all offering you a first peek at the newest collection of stamps and dies available from Ellen Hutson.  Papercrafter extraordinaire Julie Ebersole has designed a line of incredibly trendy and versatile products that are exclusively available at Ellen Hutson and today is the big day that you can grab ’em up.

I’m here along with twenty other crafty temptresses to show you my take on these new products. So, let’s get scrolling – because I’m sure you are ready for me to stop talking and start crafting.

This last project may just be my very fave. If you are unfamiliar with the hilarity of “Treat Yo Self” do your self a favor and indulge in next thirty-five seconds. Considering that Halloween is right around the corner, it only made sense to put this die to use for the holiday. I printed out the “Trick or” portion and added it to the die.

  1. Thanks so much for all the helpful hints and new techniques. Your work is just stunning. I love the simplicity of the Christmas tree card with the watercolor background. I am finding myself to be a big fan of the bokeh dots. Wow!

  2. I love your projects. I especially love the Laurel Wreath. I struggled trying to figure out how to use it. Your use is the favorite that I have seen. Very creative.

  3. DIY, and I want to do just like you and make it a Cozy Christmas! Thanks for the chance to win, Amber. Your cards are awesome for mass producing.

  4. Don’t send many Christmas cards; I make special personalized tags for their gifts. So glad you got to showcase some of Julie’s new work

  5. I am hoping to make most, if not all of them, i have done around 10 so far. We are planning a big overseas holiday in December so not sure if they will all get made, or perhaps i will send fewer this year. Great cards thanks for a chance to win a gorgeous stamp set.

  6. This post has got me ready for the holidays now and it’s only October! I’m definitely going to diy now! Especially love the watercolor look!

  7. Love your projects! Glad to see the step-by-steps too…you make things really accessible for all skill-levels. Thanks for sharing!
