EBE by Julie Ebersole, Essentials By Ellen Release, Summer of Stamping

S’more Previews of NEW Essentials by Ellen!

We’re back with s’more previews of the new August Essentials by Ellen release! Every day this week, we’ll be showing off previews of our new release with tips, tricks and inspiration from our Design Team. To close out the week, we’ll be having an Instagram Hop, complete with prizes and giveaways!

Check back this Friday, August 19th at 9 AM PDT for our new nature-filled release!

Create a cozy camping scene with our new HAPPY TRAILS stamp set (with coordinating dies available, too!) and add an extra jolt of fun with the HAPPY TRAILS MORE SAYINGS stamp and die set!

Angela Simpson shows us how to make the cutest DIY packaging!

“The Essentials by Ellen Berry Basket (released earlier this year) makes a great gift box for a DIY s’mores kit, and the elements in Happy Trails are perfect for giving it an outdoorsy camping feel. Package your goodies up in baker’s twine for a more natural, rustic look.”

From Carly Tee Minner:

“Stretch your stamps alert… the Happy Trails set not only makes adorable camping cards but also holiday cards!”

From Carissa Wiley:

Add glossy accents over windows to add dimension and shine, creating a glass-like effect.

From Tiffany Pryce Russom:

Want to add realistic looking coffee cup stains to a background? Add brown watercolor or diluted dye ink to the bottom of an actual coffee cup and “stamp” on the background!”

From Therese Calvird

Add repeated images for a fun clean and simple design, use an odd number of elements as that always looks more pleasing to the eye.

From Emily Mydlowski:

Camping is s’more fun with friends, so of course I had to invite Bear and the cute Squirrel from Woodsy Lady!”

Tomorrow marks the start of our newest adventure with the August Essentials by Ellen release! Check back at 9 AM PDT for our celebratory Instagram Hop, where we’ll be giving away PRIZES!

Which set (or sets!) are you most excited to purchase tomorrow? Let us know below!

    How fun! I have the bear and have been making him to carry lots of things so far. He def. needs that marshmallow sticks! 😉 I love the tent and campfire scene. Love the DT’s card, using the ombre coloring! And, coffee stain background! That just reminded me of many years ago when we came up with the ideas, using limited items, cuz the limited items were available back then, compared to now. Great card!
