Favorite Fall Things-Eileen Hull Style

 Art with Heart Challenge September "Favorite Fall Things"
It's that time.....the warm breeze has turned to a cool brisk breeze, the trees are changing colors! I am getting some gorgeous colors here in the mountains! 

Are you ready for FALL? 

Here at Art with Heart we a gearing up and showing you what we can do with Eileen Hull's dies!

 I have actually made two this month!

My first is using Eileen's Train Case! You can find it by clicking on the highlighted words.

 First I gathered my inks (Wendy Vecchi inks were used), Train Case die,mat board, and Glue Dot® Lines.

Once I had all my pieces cut from my Sizzix's Mat board, I embossed them! I love the way they turned out!
Look at the detail, it gave this Train Case a rich FALL feel! I started to ink my Train Case using Wendy Vecchi inks! I love the rich Fall color I achieved with Wendy's inks!

I put my Train Case together.
 I added a gold rub onto the hinges.
Finished off the Train Case with a Tim Holtz Key hole and some fall flowers and a few leaves and acorn embellishments! This Train Case makes a beautiful floral decor piece for your home. I love the way this turned out. Could also make a great hostess gift!

 My second one is my "When is a camper not a camper? When it's a pumpkin!" project!
So cute! This is made with Eileen's Travel Trailer Die!

Just turn the Trailer on it's side and don't put one side of the Trailer on. Add a hand cut stem and you have a pumpkin!

Wouldn't this look beautiful on your Thanksgiving table at each table setting? Pop a treat into the opening and it serves as a gift box!
 I added Fall colored M & M's! (I ate my Candy Corn)
 My two projects look FABULOUS together!

I hope you like what I have shared this week!

Make sure you join us this month's prize is the Travel Trailer! You could make your own FALL pumpkins! Enter at Art with Heart.

Canvas Corp Challenge-Make something with Fabric!

Challenge is on.......!

I took a Canvas Corp canvas fabric sheet like this one
 You can buy that HERE!
I cut it into a 13" X 18" piece

I then cut out a paper shaped pumpkin
 Used crayons to trace the pumpkin on. You could just draw straight onto the fabric if you would like!
 Using Americana-Deco Art paints I painted the pumpkin and stem
 I stamped Happy Fall using foam stamps and paint
 Here is where you can get creative. I took a black Pitt pen and started to doodle, added some glitter and just had fun adding squiggly lines around the letters and pumpkin!
 I frayed the sides a bit then I just ran a straight stitch up each side. Folded over about 2" and sew straight across the top. Also I added some felt leaves for fun!
 You could add a dowel rod and hang this on your door or inside the house. I just happened to have one of these flag holders handy and thought I could hang it on it for pictures!
 I tied a bit of Raffia to the flag holder just to give it a extra pop of autumn flavor. (whats fall without raffia)

I hope you liked my project with fabric! Make sure you head over to the Canvas Corp Blog for more inspiration!
