Welcome to the Essentials by Ellen Late Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop!
This latest batch of stamps and dies are exclusive to Ellen Hutson LLC and are available right now in the shop!
We've included our take on the ever-trending pineapple with "Stay Golden", and have expanded our popular Mondo floral series with: The "Mondo Peony". There is also a complimenting greeting set, "Lovely", that will work wonderfully with any of the florals in our Mondo series.
"Stay Salty" is a nautical themed set, chock full of cheeky quips, and we simply had to provide Bear, from the previously released "All Inside", with "Bear Ware"; it's all about the accessories, right?! *wink* "Warm Fuzzies" is a greeting set that can be combined with "Bear Ware" for plenty of stand-alone options, too! (But, personally, we LOVE dressing up Bear... *chinkle*)
Full of happy-go-lucky charm and all-around adorable-ness is "Sock Monkey Surprise", by friend and new artist Kimberly Wiener! You can put him up to all kinds of shenanigans to brighten someone's day!
No matter the weather, we've got it covered with a new set of stand-alone dies, called "Silver Linings", featuring clouds, thunderbolts and raindrops in different sizes, along with some East and West directional sunrays--definitely keep your eyes peeled for some crazy creative and clever uses of this die set, along the hop! Just sayin'... *grin*
The new "Sunshine Words" offer two types of lettering, depending on your mood, and last, but certainly not least, our new "Stitching Lines" die set features a variety of classic yet versatile embroidery stitch patterns, and at 6" long, they will easily span the length of a standard A-2 card.

We strive to produce stamps and dies that are designed to compliment and cross-coordinate with each other, as well as with products from previous releases for maximum versatility! As with all our exclusive stamps and dies, they will come in our signature packaging. You can see the whole release in greater detail over in the shop!
To inspire you with all these new goodies, we have invited some crazy-talented industry friends and designers to join us for a drop-yer-jaw hop! Snag an icy cold (insert beverage of choice), get cozy and prepare to make your eyeballs happy!!! *wink*
And, guess what?! There are prizes to be had, people!
