Makin's Clay® Flowers



Hi, today I was playing with my Makin's Clay®!

I want to share with you what I did! This was fun, I had no plans! I just wanted to make some free hand flowers, no cutters or molds.

Let's get to it........


I mixed some White and Pink together


 Once blended together, I rolled it out to a large circle and let dry overnight!


Now just grab some scissors and cut three circles. They do not need to be perfect circles as you can see!

I took my Prisma colored pencils and started to color the circles.


Done coloring.

Add a brad to the smallest flower and then glue them together! I love these!!!!

What do you think? Great embellishments!!!!



I took it another step further!

I cut out the petals and colored it and shaded it more with colored pencils! OMG! LOVE!



A new way to make flower embellishments! I really like these!

Tell me what you think!!!

Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower, Heart & Soul

Sizzix Bigz Die - Flower, Heart & Soul

Item #661108

These flowers are so easy to put together and look stunning!
On my Heart & Soul flower I added crackle medium over the top and once dried I added clear glaze to make them shiny. 
This flower is a beauty!

I paired it with Eileen's re-release of the Candy drawer! I just stacked them to make a cute little dresser that could be used in a baby girls room. The paper is Canvas Corp paper. Baby Girl line.

Both projects today were made for Samples at CHA. I have now figured out  that I should take step out photos even for samples!

I love this card made with Graphic 45 papers, so fun!!!
I layers many of the papers and did some stitching on some of the layers. Added the beautiful Pansy flower and some twine and one of Eileen's NEW Leaves!

Both of my projects I used the Pansy Flower! One was rolled forward and on the other I rolled it back! But each flower is the same, just a bit different look! Which do you like?

Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Flower Pocket

This Flower Pocket die will come out in May also!So much fun!
On my Flower Pocket I used the Pansy Flower and another one of the leaves from the leave die!
The paper is from 7 gypsies, I also included some journal cards inside of the Flower Pocket!


This Flower pocket is a fun one.....I can picture crayons and coloring tablet. Great for a gift holder! Also it would be cute to add some cookies inside wrapped up oh so pretty!

Art with Heart - New Products!


Eileen Art with Heart challenge for March is here and we are using these new amazing products from Sizzix's!

I made a gift card holder with Eileen's Needle Book die! 
Have you heard of Sizzix Paper Leather and Ink Sheets?  These products are so much fun to create with!

Warning these Leather sheets.........LOVE them!!!

Sizzix Paper Leather and Ink Sheets Project Tutorials | Eileenhull.com
Materials Needed:
Leather Sheets - Sizzix
Ink Sheets - Sizzix
Needle Book Die - Eileen Hull/Sizzix
Embossing Folder 4PK Flowers, Dots, Ric Rac set 
Die cut machine - Big Kick - Sizzix
Multi color brads - Optional
Small Velcro circles
Glue


 Cut out your Needle Book using your die cut machine.


Taking the Dots embossing folder and one white ink sheet, you will put the ink sheet dull side facing the Needle Book and layer the Dot embossing folder over the top. Run through your die cut machine.


 This is what it should look like when it comes out! I was very impressed how this turned out!


 Now die cut some of the Stitchlits flowers out of the White leather sheet, layer them and add a brad to the center. Add miscellaneous brads to the circles. Glue on the strap closure. Add brad and Velcro to the closure. Just add a Glue Dot® to a gift card and there you have it....A gift card holder!
