Eileen Hull and Stampendous hop!

hello everyone!!! welcome to an exciting collaboration between Eileen Hull and Stampendous  titled  Along the Garden Path!!

sizzix and stampendous mushroom today I i am here today to share with you how i created a gnome town house party centre by combining Eileen Hulls cookie box (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/659874/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-box-cookie) steel rule die by Sizzix and the mushroom home clear stamp and die (http://www NULL.stampendous NULL.com/products-page/mushroom-home-clear-stamps-and-dies/) set from Stampendous!!

so i started out making two marks on my cookie box die. i wanted to be able to place folded paper on the die with out it cutting through. i wanted my ‘stump’ to be one sold piece of papermarking the cookie box die

i also placed an extra layer under my ‘wooden’ paper because as you know steel rule dies will cut quite thick paper.

next it was a matter of colouring my ‘stump’ because that is after all what my gnomes are living in…an old tree stump!distress stained woodfor the roof of my home i decided to use some of the paper leather sheet by sizzix. i embossed using Eileens XX folder and then rubbed some silver paint over the top. i kind of was going for the whole tin roof look

i then sanded and inked my roof in order to have it blend into it’s surroundings.. after all we don’t want everyone knowing where the gnomes live!sanded and stained

but being a party house we needed to be sure it has some party colours so i prepped some watercolour paper using distress paintsknome doors i then stamped the door and windows onto the paper and cut them out and then proceeded to glue them onto my house.

for the ‘party lights’ on the roof I started by using the prototype twister tool and some cord and once twisted I wrapped it around the roof.
