Impressing Ink Into Cardstock – Card & Tag Duo Guest Post for Ellen Hutson

By Taheerah | 24th December 2016 | 70 Comments

Hi everyone, happy Saturday!

I’m interrupting your Advent Calendar Extravaganza schedule to bring you a special post!

I think you can tell by now that Christmas is without a doubt my favourite holiday to create cards for. I’ve truly loved every single project I’ve put together that has a Christmas theme – whether it’s for Advent Calendar Extravaganza, Design Team work, or Guest Design work – or even simply for fun! Creating for Christmas brings me so much joy, and I really enjoy mixing it up in terms of styles, and it feels a bit like anything goes – colours, techniques, traditional, modern, funky, vintage, cute, religious… the possibilities feel as endless as the magical feel of the season.
Working with products from my favourite companies is also something I love doing even more so at Christmas. I especially love playing with new goodies but finding different ways to use them, stretching my supplies and creating something others haven’t, thanks to a few clever techniques.
Today’s projects are a perfect example of doing something a bit different with some products (in this case, dies). It also has given me the opportunity to team up, once again, with one of my favourite companies – Ellen Hutson, who very kindly and generously offered me an opportunity to Guest Design for them this month! The result is a fun duo full of glitz, Scandinavian charm, and a clever technique thrown in for good measure too…

This is just one shot of this project – you can find many more images, close-ups and a full step-by-step description of how I made them over at the Ellen Hutson CLASSroom blog (squeal!), where I’m guesting today! I’d truly appreciate you hopping over there and taking a look! See you there!


Ellen Hutson have very generously offered a $25 gift certificate for me to give away – and there’s a matching one on the CLASSroom blog too, so that’s $50 up for grabs!!

  1. I saw this on Ellen’s blog and HAD to let you know how fabulously classy it is! Love the way you inked up the background (and had to put it on my shopping list, too!)!!

  2. Brilliant use of all 3 dies, but the background is particularly clever. Amazing projects and so generous of EH to offer a prize when it is WE who should give that company a prize for their products and service, and should give YOU a prize for design aesthetic and creativity! Bravo

  3. Love your card — but even more, love your Advent Calendar Extravaganza! So many wonderful artists providing fabulous inspiration! Thanks for putting it together for us!

  4. What a great background the cover plate makes! And your card and tag turned out awesome! I love that you used both positive and negative of the deer!

  5. Want to make sure you know how much I appreciate putting this together. It’s quite fun to look forward to everyday. This is a fun card and I love your tip.
