A Eileen Hull Collaboration With Boxes,Toadstools, and Dreamweaver


We are excited to join with Eileen Hull and her team to bring you a great week of inspiration using our garden house stamp and die sets to add detail to Eileen’s versatile Vintage Canister Scoreboard Die by Sizzix. Sit back and enjoy the projects, comment along the way for a chance to win one of our prize packages!



Three lucky winners will win their choice of Cottage Home or Mushroom Home plus precut matboard from the Sizzix Canister Scoreboard Die. Sponsored by Sizzix. Deadline to comment is February 28th. See Official Contest Rules for details.

Here's what I've created for today's post...

 Using the Toadstool Home with its stamps and matching die set, I cut out squares of cardstock to cover the Eileen Hull medium matboard box, along with one front and three roofs. The house portions are made from Core'dinations® Vintage, which I've machine-embossed using the Dreamweaver Honeycomb stencil and sanded to reveal the design. The three roofs were machine embossed using purple Core'dinations® and the Dreamweaver Chevrons stencil. Each was sanded and distressed and all pieces were inked around the edges before adding the stamped and cut out window and door, and the fences were stamped directly on the house pieces. A bit of Sakura Gelly Roll fluorescent ink was added to these parts. The house front was popped up with foam tape, and the roof pieces were layered and adhered together. A bit of moss was adhered at the bottom with Beacon Adhesives Tacky Glue.
 

Of course, these are not just cute houses, they are also wonderful sturdy matboard boxes that are designed amazingly to be put together so easily, and hold whatever treats you might like to store in them. I'm thinking these "kisses" won't be in storage for long!
 

 Be sure to visit again tomorrow, as this cute little gnome home is only one part of a darling spring display. Check out the links of those that are playing today...
