Making a House a Home

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of my Eileen Hull project that I shared a sneak peek of at the beginning of the month. I used an empty ribbon spool as a jumping off point too create a little home decor piece.

The first thing I did was cut two circles in patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and adhered to the top and bottom of the spool. I cut a strip of the same patterned cardstock and adhered around the center of the spool and added flatback pearls to the bottom lip of the inside circle. Next I cut out one wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and added adhesive in random spots to the back of the wreath. Side note… what I will be adding to the top will anchor down the wreath.

I cut out five of the largest trees from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut, cut the trunks off, folded all, adhere the backs of the trees together and lightly ink the edges of the tree.

I cut two houses from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, a small section/frame of the Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlit ( measure and cut at the house die roof line), fold and glue together. I backed the inside of both houses before adhering to the front and back of the “frame”. I also folded, cut and glued a strip of cardstock to create a roof.

I adhered both the tree and house to the top of the spool and proceeded to add an assortment of flowers, vines and leaves dies from the following diecuts: Wreath and Snowflakes and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits to the top of the spool.

I also added loops of thread and hand inked cheese cloth along with sequins, gems and flatback pearls to the flowers, leaves and vines.

I cut out the home sentiment and backed with a coordinating patterned cardstock, added Foam Pop Dots to the spool and placed the sentiment onto the front of the spool to finish.

If you haven’t been to Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE. Also on the 26th of April Eileen will have newest release of stamps with Makers Forte so be sure to come back to my blog for my latest project.

Eileen Hull Ch 2 Reveal and a Little Sneak Peek

Hi everyone! It’s that time again for another release from Eileen Hull and Sizzix! Are you as excited as I am? I am only sharing a sneak peek of my project that I created with a full reveal later in the month. I had A LOT of fun with these new Thinlits and several other diecuts by Eileen! What doing you think? I can’t wait to share this project!

Have you noticed something different? There are no ScoreBoards dies in this collection! This Release includes two Shadowbox Frames Thinlits sets that also include some decorative flowers and shapes. The pieces may be used interchangeably to create square and rectangular frames. The Shadowbox Elements Thinlits set contains more decorative pieces to embellish your fames with but they may also be used on cards, tags and journals! Topping it off is the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder that you will just have to have- the detail is absolutely incredible!

 This set of dies is very versatile since all of the components coordinate and work together so you can create endless combinations of projects in multiple sizes and shapes. The embossing folder creates a beautiful background for all of the scenes you might want to make, in addition to all the other uses you will find for it. 

Thanks for being open to new ways of creating!

Floral Spring House Rolodex

Hi everyone! I’m back again with a project I created for a swap I was in! For this swap we had to create three rolodex/memorydex cards plus decorate a small basket for Easter…I know Easter was several months ago. 😁 The swap was put on hold for about a month because of Covid19 and once everything started opening back up a new date was set for the swap. Well, by this time I got behind and I am just now getting caught up with my extra curricular projects.
I have an old Rolodex Diecut that I had purchased from Stampin’ Up a very long time ago that I used to cut out my rolodex blanks. You can use store bought rolodex cards or here are links to Heidi Swapp’s Memorydex Card Diecuts HERE and HERE.
I used Brenda Walton’s Country Cottage 3D Diecut, Floral Tapestry Embossing Folder and Eileen Hull’s Make It 3D Diecut (all retired) to created the house for the rolodex card. I used Chipboard that I covered in patterned cardstock to created the house and I also backed the rolodex with chipboard as well. I wanted the house diecut to be “thinner” than the original so I cut only the front and back and used the Make It 3D diecuts for the sides and then adhered to the rolodex card base.

I dug into my stash of flowers, leaves and butterfly punches and added those to the roof along with thread, trim and a gem for the center of the flower.

On the corner of the rolodex I adhered more flowers, thread and cheese cloth. And there you have it! The first rolodex of three that I have created. I will be back soon to share the other two rolodex cards. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

The Bloom House

Hi everyone! I am back with a fun little project I created for ClearSnap!

I placed the House/Pocket Stitchlit Diecut on top of the Watercolor Paper and placed in between cutting plates and run through a Diecut Machine. I cut out two House/Pocket diecuts. I placed watercolor paper on top of the smaller “wall” of the Box, Make It 3D Diecut (retired) and placed in between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I cut out two walls diecuts. I inked the Jumbo Crackle Background Rollagraph (I couldn’t find a link for the Rollagragh but found this CrackleBackground Molding Mat…same design) with Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad (Jumbo Handle doesn’t need ink cartridge) and roll over both house diecuts and “wall” diecuts. I applied White Embossing Powder, shook off excess and set with a Heat Tool.

I inked an Art Dauber with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink and applied ink to both houses and wall diecuts. Next I loaded an art dauber with Palomino Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and randomly apply to both the houses and walls diecuts. I adhered walls to the inside edges of house diecuts. 

I cut a piece of watercolor paper 1 1/2″x7″ and fold in half and inked a glass tray with Palomino and Cattail Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks, add water to both inks and painted both sides of the 1 1/2″x7″ watercolor paper. 

I inked the edges of roof with Platinum Pigment Ink and glued to the top of the house.

I placed the Textured White Cardstock on top of the Beaded Oval Diecut. Then placed between cutting pads and run through diecut machine. I loaded an Art Dauber with Mini Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and inked edges of diecut. Next I inked an art dauber with Palomino Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and lightly ink over whole diecut and adhered to the front of the house diecut.

I inked a scalloped circle and circle punches with Mini Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and added to the center of the diecut on front of house. I adhered a flower punch to the center of punches, adhered a sequin and gem to the center of flower. I printed from computer the word “BLOOM”, cut out and ink edges with Mini Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and added to house. I tied a bow from pink thread and adhere underneath flower diecut on the front of house.

Next I cut a 3″x5 3/4″ piece of watercolor paper and rounded the corners of paper with a Corner Rounder. I loaded an art daubers with Shamrock, Citronella and Palomino Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and randomly inked over the watercolor paper. 

I loaded a paint brush with water and “paint over”  the inked paper and once dry adhered to the “tabs” on the bottom of house.

I placed textured white cardstock on top of Flowers Journaling Card Diecut and placed between two cutting plates and run through diecut machine. Next I cut a leaf from crinoline fabric using the same steps as used to cut out the flowers diecut.

I inked an art dauber with Mini Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and inked the edges of two of the flower diecuts. Next I inked both the larger and smaller flower diecuts with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. Next I inked the  crinoline fabric leaf diecut with Shamrock Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. 

I shaped and adhered the flowers together and add leaf to the back of flower. I looped thread several times and create a messy bow and adhere to the corner of the house along with the flower and leaf and added a Glossy Dot to the center of flower before adhering to the house. 

I added a pre-made flower to the backside of the handmade flowers. I also shaped stem with a small wooden dowel.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:

House Warming Invitations

Hi everyone! I am here to share three cards I created for a Canvas Corp crew challenge.

I used the 6″x6″ Black & Kraft Cardstock Paper Pack which is perfect to make 3″x6″ card bases with. The photo below is how I created the “peaks” of the house roof and once I measured and cut I folded sides to the inside of the card and adhered the edges along with the bottom edge to create a pocket.
I painted the Farmhouse Christmas Holiday Door Tag with Silk Glimmer Mist and Mint Julip Glimmer Mist…I sprayed this on a deposable tray and then painted onto the door. The wreath I used Moss Glimmer Mist and I let the tags dry.

I used scraps of Blue & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse, Green & Ivory Dot Reverse, Tan & Ivory French Script and I used the back side of Santa’s Journey: Roof Top Cardstock to decorate the doors and to create banners for the welcome sign which was printed from the computer. Also I pulled threads from a piece of Natural Burlap to make the bows which I adhered to the bottom of each roof.

I added to the roof of each house scraps of lace, pom pom trim and rich rac and then finished off with buttons, sequins and a flat back pearl. The invite I printed from the computer and then cut to size to fit inside of the house.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies Used: 
Other Supplies Used: Buttons, Scalloped Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Sequins, Flat Back Pearls, Lace, Pom Pom Trim, Ric Rac

Welcome Baby

Hi everyone!I’m here to share this adorable house container I created for a baby shower. I used Eileen Hull’s Gift Card Holder, House and the Box, Square diecuts and the Mat Board Sheets. In the photo below shows how I cut the pieces out except I did cut another house back and I measured, scored and cut a roof too. I got carried away and forgot to take a photos of that. lol 🙂

I used cardstock from Heidi Grace and My Mind’s Eye to cover the outside and inside of the house.

I added hinges to the door so it could be opened and a photo along with birthing info can be added if the parents choose to do so.

The roof I raided my jar or yellow buttons and glued each and everyone to the roof…very time consuming be well worth it.

An inside peek of the house.

I finished off with sequins, buttons, a dew drop, pom pom trim and a little welcome banner. 
If you have any questions please let me know.
Also I am submitting this project for: Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #167.
