hello everyone! i am back again this week to show you another project i have created for the Eileen Hulls Art with Heart Challenge for the month of November with the theme A Stitch In Time (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/11/art-with-heart-november-challenge-a-stitch-in-time-with-new-sizzix-stitchlits NULL.html).
You can interpret that theme however you like, just show us your oh-Sew-crafty projects for a chance to win some of the new Stitchlits Sizzix dies. My teammates have been making some incredible projects and we are all very excited about this new collection.
now i am not a sewer or a card marker really but i have had so much fun creating with them and challenging myself.
so i wanted to know, what could i cut with these stitchlits other than paper? would i be able to do grungepaper?? well i wouldn’t know until i tried. so i found myself a piece of grungepaper scrap (as if there is such a thing as scrap grungepaper) and holy moly lo and behold it did!! so then it was just a matter of what i would do with it
it fit perfectly on the side of a bag i use to cart supplies back and forth when i go to teach at my local scrapbook store so i knew it needed to be ‘ARTified’ so out came my tim holtz paints and some Art Anthology Stone effects here is what i ended up creating!
and put it on this!!so then i got a thinking…. okay i wonder what else could i ‘stitch’ on and that is when i happened upon a package of Sizzix Paper Leather Sheets (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661149/sizzix-paper-leather-sheets-8-1-2-x-11-assorted-basics-10-pack)that i had ordered but wasn’t quite sure what i wanted to do with them….
this is what i have come up with!
i decorated an apron!!
hope you have been playing along with the Art with Heart challenge. we love seeing what you have created!
hello everyone!! today I am here to share with you a simple little project I created for the Emerald Creek Dares (http://blog NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/)challenge!
Remembrance Day is a day to honour and remember all those who were affected, injured, or gave their lives in service to their country.
there is nothing more symbolic then the poppy & Flanders Field so for my project for this Emerald Creek challenge i wanted to do a simple, meaningful project.
i started with a sheet of this cardstock which i stamped a script using watermark and once dry i inked the sheet with distress inks.
i then cut it to size to fit inside one of the letter tray boxes which i attached to the back of the frame using tissue tape
i then created a poppy using this flower die (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/657118/sizzix-bigz-die-flowers-3-d-2) byEileen Hulls for Sizzix
i then applied a lot of distress sprays to the flower. once it was dry i embossed it using this doily texture fade (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product NULL.aspx?id=316491) and then shaped it into a poppy!
love how it turned out.
i then took one of the Emerald Creek Anchor Charms (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/Anchor-Charms-6-pkg-p/ch-anchors NULL.htm), which i had ordered in error but figured i would use some day, and turned it into a mini cross of sorts!!!
hello everyone!! i am here today to share with you a project i created for Art with Heart (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/11/art-with-heart-november-challenge-a-stitch-in-time-with-new-sizzix-stitchlits NULL.html) challeng using one of Eileen Hull’s newest releases, the sewing box (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660768/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-cantilever-sewing-box)…
so let’s get started on the creation. the first thing i did was use some ground expresso distress ink and stamped the inside of all pieces of the baskets, both bottoms and sides. i glued my boxes together in the corners and then wrapped the outside of the trays with tissue tape and some pieces from a paper stash
for the levers and the feet i used a mixture of distress stain and once dry applied some ground expressothen it was just a matter of putting it all together. i chose to use brads to put mine together and for the top i added a little embellishment and here you have it!!
hope you all have played or plan on playing along with the Art with Heart (http://www NULL.eileenhull NULL.com/2015/11/art-with-heart-november-challenge-a-stitch-in-time-with-new-sizzix-stitchlits NULL.html)challenge and check out the rest of the teams projects! i will be back again next week with another project using the embroidery hoop!!!
hello everyone! today i am here to show you a tag i have created for my upcoming tag class.
i have created a lot of tags through the years but have to say the ones i am creating this year by far are going to be some of my favourites ever. here is a picture heavy step out of one of them
i started by creating my own custom blend (actually i made two different patterns same inks)
i then spritzed my tag with water
now it was time to assemble my ‘world’ using pop dots
i then added the ‘Peace on earth’ and here is my completed tag!
i can’t wait to see how my students recreate this one later on this month and make their ‘world’ their own!
