Sizzix Vintage Travel: "Spring Break" Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Let's take a break with a Vintage Travel.
As you know, each month I participate in the Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull. This month, the theme is "Spring Break". The Inspiration Team is previewing Eileen's new Sizzix Vintage Travel line of dies and folders.
This week, I would like to share a few new projects that I created with the new Sizzix 3-D Adirondack Die and the Sizzix Thinlets Banners and Pennants Die Set.


The Sizzix Thinlets Banners and Pennants Die Set is a must-have set for cardmakers. Cute banners and pennants can be made in seconds!
You can add banners to anything!
Isn't the Sizzix 3-D Adirondack Chair adorable? It's made from matboard. Yes, It's literally a paper chair. Wouldn't it be a fun retirement gift? Or make a great placecard holder for a beach-themed party?  
Please join our "Spring Break" fun and take the Art with Heart Challenge!
We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Due Date

Sunday, April 19, 2015

This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is: "Due Date." Please remember that you can interpret this challenge however you'd like. I've been thinking that it's high time I learn to use my Silhouette Cameo. You might even say that it's overdue....or past my due date.
Anyway....Aside from all the play-on-words weirdness, I really do need to learn to use the Cameo. So... I'm starting out with a simple cut sentiment on a hand stamped background. My background began with acrylic paints in mellon colors. Then I added a few fun stamps. (I love those new stamps from Stampendous!)
Pretty simple, but SUPER fun!
How would you interpret "Due Date?" Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.

In the Middle: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, April 12, 2015

In the Middle...That's the theme this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I chose to interpret the theme by NOT using the middle.Off-centered image. Off-centered tag hole. A fun change of pace to mix up the composition. A fun thing to mark your place in the middle of a book.
How did I get the image that way? I stamped on a book page and glued some of the pieces to the tag. Pretty simple, but I like the effect.
Get in the middle of things. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.


"A is for..." A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, April 5, 2015

It's another alphabet challenge! This week we are inspired by the letter "A" for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I thought of "Air Mail."

I made some funky postcards with some of the new Prima Stamps. I love the fresh new designs as well as the fact that they are reasonably priced. Only $4.99 each! I applied watercolors directly to the stamp and stamped with them instead of inks. This is a method that is not for the faint of heart. You never know how it's going to turn out.

What does "A" inspire you to create? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.


Pastels

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Pastels! A sure sign that Spring has arrived. This week, we are celebrating the softer side of the color palette for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week, I used one of my favorite stamps. The envelope liner stamp! Isn't it authentic looking? It adds a fun touch to my handmade envelopes. I also love my watercolors and they're so fun to use with embossing powders.
Embrace the pastels and show us your colors. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.
