Carefree Holiday Album - Stampendous and Artist on the Block Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Stampendous and Artist on the Block Blog Hop...I hope you have enjoyed all the beautiful projects so far but as for my project it is not an Artist Block I am sharing with you but another of Eileen Hull's dies she designs for Sizzix. The die I am using is called Photo Album and I love it.
Here a photo the Photo Album Die...it is one of my favorites and it works perfect with the Stampendous Stamps
 I began my album by first stamping both the front and back of my album with the Stampendous Butterfly Post Stamp and Memories Black Indian Ink. Once stamp begin by inking the surface with Tea Dye Ink...
Repeat again using Wild Honey....
 and finally with Broken China. Repeat until you get the look you want. 
Stamp the Blossom Beauty Stamp three times on White Card Stock and color with your favorite markers, die cut out using the matching Blossom Beauty Die Set and ink edges using Tea Die ink.
Layer together using pop dots. I love to fussy cut so I had to add a few flowers from Graphic 45 paper to go along with my gorgeous flower. 
Add layered flower to the top of your face you have colored, add to top of Photo Album. Stamp and color the Butterfly Post Stamp on to white card stock and color in using you markers, fussy cut out, bend wings and adhere to the stamped butterfly on your album. Add the frame that comes with the Photo Album after you have colored it with markers and stamped the Butterfly Post stamp using black ink. 
Cut three 4" x 12" pieces of paper, fold in half and add to the inside of album using black jute. Finish your Photo Album with some metal pieces, ribbon and gemstones in the flowers. I hope you have enjoyed my album and continue on with the blog hop. Also, make sure to check both Stampendous and Eileen Hull/Sizzix products while you are at it. Hugs Pammejo

"Smile Card" with Teresa Collins Everyday Moments

 I love this stamp from Technique Tuesday and use it alot, it always makes me "Smile" and works wonderful with Teresa Collins Everyday Moments Collection. I layered my paper on to a A2 white card base to keep the simplicity of the card I was making.
 Stamp your sentiment on a piece of the polka dot strip and layer it on to both a piece of yellow and navy card stock. Place on top of a scallop border strip of paper you have punch from the Everyday Moment Collection. 
 These rosettes are another thing that always make me "Smile". I made them using Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone Die and my Cut N Boss from Craftwell, roll them and tip the petals using a pair of tweezers to achieve the look you want...add to front of card. Finish the front of your card with a pretty white seam binding bow, metal bow and a few pieces of clear gemstones.
 To finish your card add another border punch that has been matted with navy cardstock. I hope my card made you "Smile" today and you try making some happy cards. Hugs Pammejo

 Happy Valentine Day...I want to share with you the card I made to give to my wonderful husband. 
I layered several pieces of Graphic 45Place in Time February papers on to a piece of
 5 1/2 x 5/12 piece of Kraft paper. I added the St Valentines Greeting Journal piece to the front of the card using pop dots. Fussy cut a second of the vintage ladies out and add it also to the top with pop dots, love all the dimensions.
I love this little flower punch from EK Success, it makes such wonderful little flower accessories to add to your projects. I made 6 double layers ones and added them to the edge of my journal piece, adding epoxy bubbles to the middle and a bit of bling flourish to the front.
Here is the a peek at the inside of the card along with showing the dimension and layers on the front.

Love Tag with Craftwell and Hazel & Ruby

Hi it is Pam here today sharing with my Love Tag using Hazel and Ruby Wrap It Up - Maps of the World Paper and Craftwell Cut N Boss Machine.
 I began by first covering a premade tag with the Maps of the World Paper...
 and then inked the edges using both Wild Honey and Barn Red Distress Ink. 
I painted some of the Maps of the World Paper using DecoArt Quinacridone Red and Quinacridone Gold Paint.
Cut out a small heart from the Maps of the World Paper once it is dry and set to one side.
Using your Cut N Boss die cut one of the Honeycomb using white paper that has been distressed with Wild Honey Ink.
Add Honeycomb to the top of tag...
Place small metal frame to front of tag, add letters to the inside. Add ribbons to the bottom of tag along with flowers and ribbon bow. 
The lacy flower is made from a piece of stained ribbon...using a thread and needle do a running stitch at the top of the ribbon, pull tight to form a circle, and secure with a knot...add a button to the center. The rosette is a circle that has been cut using a 3" circle die, Maps of the World Paper and Cut N Boss,  torn to form a spiral, using tweezers....start from the out side of the circle spiral roll up and then allow it to release itself a bit, glue to center of spiral to form rosette. Place both to the front of the tag. 
Add wood chip arrows to the top of the tag that have been stained, add heart that you set aside to top of one of the wood chip arrows. I hope you enjoyed my Love Tag and make sure to check out other inspiring projects on the Craftwell Blog as well as our other products offered in the store.

How I Love Thee Challenge with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog

You and Me Equals Love is my How I Love Thee....I made a beautiful 12 x 12 Wall Hanging to give to my love for Valentines Day and it is full of hidden surprises for my Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog "How I Love Thee" Design Team Project.
 Each of the rectangles on the wall hanger is actually a pocket that was made using Eileen Hull's Pocket Sizzix Die that I decorated with Crate Paper Fourteen Collection.
This is one of the fun things that are hidden in the pocket..using a small tag book with a few love notes. I fussy cut My Valentine Doll out and placed it to the front of the pocket using pop dots, added a some chipboard pieces from the Fourteen Chipboard Sheet and made an accordion flower to place on top of the doily I have on the pocket. 
 I am going to share with you some close ups of the other three pockets....
I love the dimension that all the Fourteen Chipboard pieces give to my wall hanging and the accordion flowers are so easy to make and the addition of them make my wall hanging extra special, don't you think?
I added white gesso from Deco Art to the wall hanging using a Tim Holtz Doily Stencil: Hint: do this before you adhere the pockets to the top of the wall hanger, lol...I didn't, oops.
Last but not least is the Bicycle Built for Two Pocket...love this pocket. Love all the accordion flowers and embellishments.
I finished my wall hanger adding paper doilies and flags that I fussy cut under some of the pockets. Well, I hope you have enjoyed my You and Me Equal Loves Wall Hanger and try to make yourself one for someone you love.Make sure to check out the rest of the design team and see their "How I Love Thee" Challenge projects.

Love Notes Artist on the Block

I am sharing my Love Notes Mini Album Artist Block along with it being on the Artist on the Block Blog.
 It is super easy to make and will make a lovely gift for me to give to my sweet husband with some special notes. 
I began by cutting out an XL Scoreboard Artist Block, covering it with some music paper from the Echo Parks Victoria Collection. I torn and glued paper towels to the edges of the block, added a sticker and frame to the front of the box.
Once the glue and paper towels are completely dried; cover with White Gesso from Deco Art Mixed Media, along with adding some over the frame. 
Again, wait for the Gesso to dry and then apply Modeling Paste over the Tim Holtz Shattering Layer Stencil.
Allow the Gesso is dry cover with a wash of Deco Art Translucent White Paint, then a wash of the Deco Art Green Gold and to finish with a wash of the Cadmium Red Paint. ***Repeat doing the same to the white flowers. Set everything to one side until it dries.
To make the books you will need to cut two 3" x 3" pattern papers for the book covers, cut a 1" piece of the matboard to for the binding, add the pattern paper to the inside of cover to make book.
Cut 8 pieces of 3" x 6" pieces of white card stock, stamp with Love Letters Memento Ink and a Stampendous Script Stamp.
Using one of the labels from Eileen Hull's Kitchen Label Dies place on a folded white scrap paper, add letter sticker and run through die cut machine.
Make a label for each of the "Love" letters.
Once everything is dry add the labels to the front of mini books and flowers to the cover of the Love Notes Artist Block.
Well I hope you have enjoyed my Love Notes Artist Block and make sure to checkout the Artist on the Block for more fabulous inspiration along with the Eileen Inspiration Blog to play along with the Project to Love Challenge.
