Rise & Shine - Ellen Hutson/Waffleflower Hop


Today some of the Ellen Hutson Design Ambassadors are hopping to celebrate the newest Waffle Flower Release! (hop details below).




I mixed new with old for this colourful, happy card. I used the new Be A Cat die and left her mostly white, with softly blended pink cheeks, a pink nose, black eyes and grey stripes and whiskers.

I made my colourful background by blending Catherine Pooler inks onto a white panel of cardstock. I marked the centre of the cardstock and then used the long sun-ray triangle stamp from Rain Check and Wow! Embossing ink to create my sunrays. I planned to emboss them with clear powder, but I felt like they were visible enough without adding the shine or dimension.

I cut the sun from Rain Check and inked it with more Catherine Pooler inks and popped it into the Cat's 'hands'. The sentiment is also from Rain Check.


My sister has a brown horse who is always looking for treats, so to make this card, I started with the Be A Unicorn die cut from kraft cardstock and trimmed off his horn and wings to make him into a horse. I blended brown ink along the edges (and pink on his cheeks) and gave him a darker forelock.

The sentiment is from the Essentials by Ellen Last Bite set and the background was blended with Catherine Pooler inks.
