Essentials by Ellen Reveal Week – Day Four

Welcome to the final day of the Essentials by Ellen Reveal Week! We’re excited to continue sharing our beautiful new June Release, leading up to our launch on Friday, June 10th at 9:00 AM PST! Everyday will be packed with inspiration and previews of our new release from our fabulous Design Team, and we’re closing out the week with a celebratory Instagram Hop. If you missed yesterday, check out Day Three HERE!

Today, we are featuring:

  • Oval Hoops Die Set
  • New downloadable cross stitching patterns, created by Ellen!

From Tiffany Pryce Russom:

“One of my favorite ways to create my own “patterned paper” is by repeating several die cuts to fill a background. Tone-on-tone die cuts looks great, but try adding color too!”

From Carissa Wiley:

“Step your project up by using gold thread for some shine!”

From Therese Calvird:

“Stretch your dies! Why not try using the Oval Hoops die as a ‘vase’. I decorated mine with a white heat embossed dotted line from the Positive Vibes Stamp Set.

From Emily Mydlowski:

“The smallest oval hoop is the perfect size for handmade gift tags, especially when combined with the sentiments from Old Spool and sentiment strip images from the Positive Vibes Sentiment Set.”

From Carly Tee Minner:

“Are you intimidated by stitching? Start with a really basic shape like a heart. The adorable Oval Hoops makes any shape look like a work of art!”

From Angela Simpson:

Try using faux wood cardstock to make the oval hoops look like actual embroidery hoops. Stitch a panel underneath, or skip the stitching and keep with the theme by creating a textured white panel with the Essentials by Ellen Piercing Plates.

From Daniel West:

“Shaker bits move more freely if you use extra thick foam to pop up the top layer. You can also fold your foam tape in half to make it double thick.”

From Emily Leiphart:

“When using more intricate dies, keep everything else simple. Here, I stamped the partial images on colored cardstock and arranged them like a gallery.”

Check back in tomorrow at 9:00 AM PST for the official launch of our June ESSENTIALS BY ELLEN RELEASE!
