Sizzix Eileen Hull Shadow Box dies

I made this lovely framed piece recently for a Facebook live, so thought I’d share some instructions on making it.

I used the largest frame die from the Shadow Box #2 set for the frame, and cut it four times to make a square.

This frame measures 15.5cm x 15.5cm, so I cut a piece of kraft card that size for the backing, then added some pale aqua card to the front.

I then used a Tim Holtz stencil (THS004) to add some uneven stripes with Sizzix Texture paste. I then added some Prima Sparks acrylic paint on top, in a rainbow. For the rest of the background I did a little bit of stamping in brown ink (Tim Holtz Papillon and Studio Light Jenine’s Mindful Art Collection). Once the ink had dried I dry-brushed some gesso on the background.

To create a little ledge for the houses, I cut two strips of mat board and stuck them back to back, then covered with a piece of frayed burlap. I cut the houses from kraft card and backed them with some patterned paper and an old book page. I added them with foam pads to give a bit of dimension.

I then dry-brushed some gesso on the frame, on the front and sides, then added some Tim Holtz Crackle Texture paste with a spatula and set aside to dry.

Thanks for popping by today, I’ll list below the main products used.

New Sizzix Effectz range of paints and mediums

This week is very exciting, both Pete and I have shows on Create and Craft TV launching the new Effectz range of creamy acrylic paints, foils, pastes and waxes. So many exciting possibilities with these new goodies.

I do plan to do a video run through of all the new products, I’ve linked them all at the end of this post. I probably won’t get time to film it until next week though as I’m at Create and Craft on Wed, Thursday and Sunday.

More sneak peeks ahead of my Mixed Media show on Tuesday

Here’s a few more of the cards I’ll be sharing on Tuesday on Create & Craft TV – these first two cards are using the Tim Holtz Funky Nature die set. I really love the elements in this set, and they are all cleverly designed with nice layers so you can build up the colours.

I really love the impresslits in this release – especially the four leaf clover, the detail on it is lovely, so I highlighted it with some gold wax.

This Wildflower is a Bigz, so I decided to use some thick corrugated cardboard to give a bit of a rustic look.

Sorry this photo is a bit bright – I couldn’t get a good shot in the bright sun today! It looks much nicer in real life.

The Cafe Colorize set is really good fun, I’ve got a few coffee/tea themed stamp sets so I’m glad to have some nice dies to use with them.

That’s it for now – I’ll be on Create & Craft TV on Tuesday at midday for a double show.
