Hi everyone! This weekend there is a Eileen Hull event and giveaway on the Sizzix blog, where the DT members have done many fabulous projects using Eileen's awesome dies. Be sure to check it out, you can also win some great prizes.
I particularly love all the 3D and dimensional projects you can make with the Scoreboards dies and for today's tutorial I used three of Eileen's dies, the 3D house Pro die, the Scoreboards Bird and the flowers from the Caddy Bag die.
For my house, I decided to use a happiness theme:
brick texture fade.
Notebook embossing folder, which looks great as wooden planks.
Bird Scoreboards die that I wanted to use makes a pretty large bird, so I turned to one of my favourite solutions, shrink plastic. Die-cut the Scoreboards bird from shrink plastic and cut off the little flap on the wing since we won't need it.
Caddy Bag die from natural sticky-back canvas.
Ink the pieces with distress inks.
Embellish the house before assembling it, it is much easier then. Assemble the house according to the instructions (you can find them here). Use a strong adhesive, I used wonder tape. I added some lace trim as eaves on the large roof.
Cargo Stencil Numbers die, painted silver and coated with Glossy Accents.
I found a teenage photo of me that I had printed on cardstock and used that inside an idea-ology bookplate which was first aged with a bit of white paint.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Don't forget to check out the Sizzix blog today and tomorrow to see the work of the rest of the DT and for a chance to win some great prizes.
A few days ago, I posted a tutorial using Eileen's Suitcase die, which is another super fun die. You can find it here if you want to have a look.
Thank you so much for visiting!
