INTRODUCING: Ella & Friends





Are you ready for Ella & Friends?!

This is a thrilling set for us for a number of reasons!

Ella & Friends is the first and only set that Angela and I literally designed together. LITERALLY, we were sitting together side by side and we drew Ella out one pencil stroke at a time. Angela started with drawing the head, I picked up with shaping the trunk, and we each took turns finishing the image. Shockingly, we completed Ella on our first try in less than a minute! This is the truest form of collaboration between us!

Ella & Friends is our 100th stamp set! How's that for a milestone!

We've had so, so many customer requests to design a set inspired by our company name! We are so happy to finally introduce Ella & Friends to you today!

Ella & Friends is a super playful set. We've given Ella plenty of little friends to keep her happy. Wanna blow bubbles? Allow the little bunny on her tippy toes. Maybe Ella can use a wash -- use the towel or brush, her little friends will gladly help her get ready for the next bash!

Here's my baby Ella just, oh you know, blowing some bubbles with her little buddies. Bubbles are quite fun, aren't they?



Here's another -- ELLOOOOOO from Ella!

She's blowing bubbles again making a mess while Mister Porcupine is trying to clean her. Yes, those bubble letters are from Balloon Letters!


I've said it before, but it's worth mentioning again, we always try to design with maximum versatility in mind. When we designed Balloon Letters and Balloon Et Cetera, we purposely left out the tail end of the balloon so they can be balloons or word bubbles!

To achieve the soft bubble look, I inked up my stamps, stamped it off on scratch paper first and then stamped on the card. The softness makes it look like real bubbles!

Angela always loves a good story! This set includes some elements that can let your imagination go wild!


We truly adore Ella and her friends!

Remember to come back tomorrow as we introduce another set!
