Ellen Hutson & Hero Arts are Better Together

I adore companies that support one another. Ellen Hutson, LLC and Hero Arts both have a long standing tradition of doing just that, so it was no surprise to me when they teamed up to release the latest United We Flourish stamp and die set.

This stamp set is just so stinkin’ cheerful! The styling of the birds just sings happiness to me. *Tweet – Tweet*

  • Apply alcohol ink (linked in supplies below) to a 3 1/2″ square Yupo paper placing intermixing drops of color and rubbing alcohol. Blow with straw or use paint brush to move colors. Don’t give up when you think it looks a hot mess. Lift ink with paper towel and try again. Keep playing until you are happy! Set aside to dry.
  • Stamp Better Together images on 110# Neenah, color with Copics (linked in supplies below) and die cut.
  • Die cut circle into 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Snow Layering paper.
  • Stamp fence on 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Snow Layering paper panel using circle panel as a guide.
  • Audition birds and branch on circle panel and stamp sentiments.
  • Sandwich Yupo alcohol panel between circle panel and fence panel with tape adhesive.
  • Adhere birds and branch with tape or liquid adhesive. I prefer liquid for the wiggle room.
  • Adhere to A2 folded card base.
