Hop with Eileen Hull's ATB and Stampendous!

It's time for a hop around the Block!

Artist Trading Block that is!

                             
I am up today!

I hope you have been hopping along! So many great ideas! Many different styles!


I received the Cling Hydrangea Garden stamps #CRS5067, with that I also received the matching cutting die set and something that I had never used before. It is called Spoonful of gold dust, Embossing Powder & Elements. Have to say.......I LOVED IT! 


 I colored every element with my Prismacolor pencils and blended them with Gamsol.

After everything was colored and blended, I took the Spoonful of gold dust and sprinkled some on the flowers and the butterflies and heated them from underneath the sheet of paper. What a spectacular effect it gave! OM-gosh I can't wait to get some of the rust!!!!

I liked it so much I choose to use the Sizzix Little Sizzles black Mat Board so that I could sprinkle the Artist Trading Block with the GOLD DUST! Oh yeah! It looks FABULOUS! Using the Sizzix black Mat Board I did have to leave my heat gun on a little longer and moved it around so not to burn the Mat Board.




I used the largest ATB and I stuck a Styrofoam ball into the box so that I could arrange my floral arrangement!
I had some twigs that broke off of a twig wreath and thought that would make great stems for my flowers and give some added interest. I used very, very thin wire to adhere the butterflies to so that they look like they are flying.


 I really like the way this ATB turned out! 
It has depth and interest and 
it is full of GOLD!


We know this form of crafting will spark your interest and give your mojo a serious boost! That’s why we have prizes!!! We’ll choose three winners at random from the comments on all blogs in the hop. Then from those three we’ll randomly pick a GRAND PRIZE winner! Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps. They’ll also receive enough pre-cut, premium matboard from Sizzix to make two boxes of your own, plus some extra pieces for fiddly bits! The Grand Prize winner will receive the stamps as above, a whole package of matboard, AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB boxes! Uh, WOW!
If that weren’t enough, eligibility for these amazing prize packages has expanded to include our international fans too!




We know you won’t want to miss a single creation in this hop, and the Eileen Hull Designs Inspiration Team has several members that live outside the United States, so it took a while for them to get their products from us. We need to give them time to post and you time to comment, so the comment deadline will be Sunday, March 8th. A whole extra week! We will continue posting links as we receive them from the Inspiration Team, so be sure to keep checking back. You get one entry for every comment, so you don’t want to miss the chance to leave a thoughtful comment on each project. For those who tend to get lost, we’ll post a “cumulative” link list of links so far on Saturday, February 28th and Saturday, March 7th. Then you can check your progress.

What a beautiful box. I also saw that spoonful of dust is made in rust colors. It looks like a great product. The gold certainly adds just the right sparkle.
