Hello, and welcome to the Late Summer 2016 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! You should be arriving from Lisa’s blog – if not, then pop over to the start of the hop at The CLASSroom!

I’ll be showcasing several of the new stamp sets – in TWO videos – on my post today! (Since there are two videos today, I’ve only got one more video coming this week – on Friday.) Scroll down for giveaway info and for the supply lists are below each video.

Sandy Allnock Knitted Birthday Card

Knitted Birthday Card: Sock Monkey

Sock Monkey has a bunny friend. And balloons! I looked up the monkeys on Google to check the coloration, and the monkeys are kind of a brown-grey color….so I used both. You could also swap the order – grey color on the monkey with brown lines. Either will create that mottled knitted effect! Watch the video below or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Sandy Allnock MrBear Goes to Ocean

Mr Bear Goes to the Ocean

For my second card, I decided it was time to get out distress markers – I haven’t used them in a while! I combined a few techniques here, both straight-up coloring as well as scribbling on the stamps for the background images to make them look like they’re in the distance! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.
