Sizzix Party Ideas: Fall Place Setting

I'm back from my very damp and long vacation!  Settling back into my routine now that all the vacation laundry is done.  

I have a few things I am working on before I go away again in August.  For the month of July the Eileen Hull Team has been creating awesome Party Decor projects.  Check out my Thanksgiving "FALL" Party Place Setting.



I used the Flower Pansy and Place Card and Flower die's for this project.  Along with those awesome coffee filters and distress inks fossilized amber, carved pumpkin and barn door.


Once inked and crinkled I cut the coffee filter flowers and inked the edges.  Gathered a couple more dies and stamps to pull this quick project together.


To help make projects quicker I will often cut a few extra cuts like with the Fall Foliage die.


I cut the Calendar Words October with Sizzix Leather Paper and inked the bottom with ground espresso for a gradient look.


I love the Flower Pansy adhered to the top with a Emerald Creek Pine Cone charm center.


Stamped with the Graphed stamp.


I love the Emerald Creek Squirrel tucked behind this real pinecone. 


In Canada Thanksgiving is celebrated in October. 


Wouldn't these be adorable on your table!


Stop by Eileen Hull's blog for more inspiration and idea's for your Party Decor project.

It's good to be home and in my craft room.  Before I head out again and adventure!

    1. That was Eileen's idea. I don't think I will use anything else now. They take the ink so well!

  4. Fabulous Nicole! Wonderful fall colours and love the coffee filter flower with the pinecone center. The addition of the grid stamp and shading on your October die cut add so much interest, thanks for sharing this great project! Deb xo

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
