Floral Collage Gift Folder for Eileen Hull Designs

Hi everyone and welcome. This month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team continue to share ideas for using the latest Sizzix Scoreboards Dies from Eileen Hull Designs. The first is called 'House Ornament' and the second is 'Gift Card Folder & Label #2' and both are so much fun to play with. Make sure to check out all the team's fabulous posts on Eileen's website HERE.

Today I have a new Gift Card Folder to share with you, showing how even on the smallest of packages can be decorated in a collage style;

On one of Eileen's recent Facebook Live videos HERE she showed how you can cut the folder from paper or card and fold to make a thinner pocket version so I gave it a go.

The painted card came from the leftovers of a project I made for PaperArtsy HERE using a mix of Fresco Finish Acrylics (Chalk, Venice Blue, White Fire, Lilac and Pansy). The reverse side of the card was untreated so after painting it with a coat of the Lilac Fresco Finish Paint I stamped script from PaperArtsy's Scrapcosy ESC18 set with Eileen's Colorbox Blends Ink in Coconut and embossed it with clear embossing powder. To give this side more of a marbled finish I diluted some Pansy Fresco Finish Paint and dropped it onto areas of the embossed side, spritzing with water to make it run randomly across the surface.

The stamping on the folder and gift card holder were done using the same PaperArtsy's Scrapcosy ESC18 set in combination with Tim Holtz Archival Inks in Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke. I stamped the leaves onto card painted with Tinned Peas, Venice Blue and Chalk Fresco Finish Paints, whilst the flower was stamped, painted with the Pansy and Chalk Fresco Finish Paints and re-stamped before being stuck to some mouldable plastic. After cutting it out I could then heat the flower and manipulate the petals to create more dimension.

You'll notice the centre of the flower has been glazed and it has a yellowish purple hue - this is what happened when I applied Glossy Accents over the Archival Ink and some of the pigment coloured it. To emphasise it further I added a strip of tea bag paper that had been dyed with PaperArtsy's Golden Sands Infusions and a small gold cabochon from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. You may also spot from the photos below that a small piece of lace trim and some waste from a used paper pad spine were also included in the floral collage.

That's it for this month's Eileen Hull project. For lots more from the Inspiration Team make sure to check out Eileen's website this month HERE. And the 'House Ornament' and 'Gift Card Folder & Label #2' will be available at your retailers now.

Thanks for visiting,
