Eileen Hull - Sizzix Fun!

Not wanting to give Karen Burniston all the Sizzix love I thought I would show you my newest die, the lovely window box from Eileen Hull.  This little window and box has so many possibilities!  I like to think that whatever you could see out of the window you could create a little scene in the window box.  So I am thinking Christmas scenes, summer scenes... you're only restricted by your imagination.

So this little window box depicts everything me!  Bright happy colours and a little birdie too.  Of course and owl would have been preferable but maybe next time ;)  I had great fun working with inks, stamps, paints, embossing powders and all sorts.

What would you put on yours?

Almost Summer Holidays

And then the fun of working Mums really starts and we juggle the kids between me and hubby taking holidays and my Mum (where would I be without my Mum)  I have made a couple of teachers gifts.

These are fun book hedgehogs I made for the boys teachers
they can be used to hold notes.

A very simple tag for the TA's choccies

What have you done for your teachers and Ta's this year?

Minion card :)

Inspired by this amazing card by Helen, this is my feeble attempt at a Minion card, made for my work friend Tracy who's birthday was last week.

The recipient loved it :) and I enjoyed making it.  It was all
hand cut apart from the glasses.

A last minute card

I wanted to make another pop n cut card but I didn't have much time so I kept it simple and let the card design do the talking... this 3D LABEL WINDOW does not need a lot of faff to make a great card as its just such a great shape and a few stamped images and you're done.  Of course if you have the time you can jazz it up to your hearts delight too!

I used one of the new TILLY DAYDREAM DO Crafts Stamps
a Prima Washi tape stamp
and of course the wonderful Karen Burniston's Pop n Cuts

3d Label WINDOW

The edge and Scroll die is a decoration die.  It
cuts a beautiful scroll but also the decorative shape
that gets stuck behind the 3d label window and it finishes
the card off perfectly.

This was the base that I used, creates a slightly squarer card
with a nice ornate edge.

And lastly this is the Label and Butterfly Bigz die
this one decorated both the Label WINDOW pop n cut and
the Butterfly WINDOW pop n cut too.

Happy Birthday Kieran

Its my nephews birthday today! It's always a struggle to make teen boys cards, but I dusted off my Stampendous Changito stamps as he loves sports, especially football.

The wording is a Woodware stamp and I use it all the time, 
it is called Double Birthdays.

I layered the whole thing up with another one of my favourite tools, the Pop
N Cuts basetray and the 3D Label all from Crafts U Love

It's hard to see on the photo but a couple of the footballs are "floating" on a piece of
see thru plastic.  I never throw my Sizzix Bigz dies boxes away and use them when I need
something like this.
