Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

Eileen has some beautiful dies in this latest Chapter 2 release from Sizzix. I haven’t had a chance to play with them properly yet, but I do have shows on Create and Craft in May with them, so I’m looking forward to making lots more projects.

For today though, this is the first project I’ve made.

I used the Shadowbox Frames #1 die set together with the Crochet Mandala embossing folder, and the ‘home’ label is from the Shadowbox Elements set.

I went for a very simple colour scheme for this one. As it was my first time working out how to use the shadowbox dies, I used some cream card to cut the frame. (Creative Expressions Coconut White card).

It’s so simple to put together, you just cut the die four times, then fold on the score lines, and add red line tape to the tabs. It literally takes seconds.

I decided to cut a piece of the same card for a background, embossed with the embossing folder. That way it also looks really pretty from the back.

Then I decided to decorate with flowers and leaves from the set, sticking with a really muted colour scheme. I added three flowers to the centre – two are popped up on foam tape to give some dimension, then I added some of the leaves to the corner of the frame, along with some little dots of Tonic Nuvo Drops to look like little shiny pearls.

For the Home label, I used the elements from the Shadowbox Elements die set, and inlayed the letters back into the label in a pale pink. I just love the colour combo of the pale pink and kraft card.

I can’t wait to start playing with the larger shadow box now. Especially since Sizzix have some lovely new cardstock in muted tones – I think it’s going to work so well with these dies.

I’ve listed all the products below, thanks for stopping by.
