Blog Hop with Eileen Hull & StencilGirl Products

It's time for another Blog Hop!!!
 
It's with Eileen Hull Inspiration Team, Craffiti Direct (who make Eileen's stamps) and
 
StencilGirls!
 
This Blog Hop runs from Aug. 18-22 with a Stencil Give-Away at the end from all the comments left on each blog.
 
 
This is my project....the die is soooo stinkin' cute, and this little box has so many possibilities.
  
The  pieces were cut from chipboard using the
 


You cut 2 pieces of the box section to make the caddy, or you can use just one. I also cut a few more flowers and leaves.
 

I base coated all the pieces with acrylic paint and then added my stenciling with archival ink and a foam square.
 
 
I used the Andrew Borloz stencil L159 everywhere here. It is so versatile with 6 different patterns.
 
 
 
Next I used the 2 different circle/cross patterns with white acrylic paint. Then I stamped with the sets below using Black Archival Ink.
 
 
 
I used 2 different stamp sets from Eileen's collection, Dahlia and Frame and Picket Fence.
 
 
Working on the middle section, I painted it with acrylic paints. Then I used the little squares stencil and a white paint dabber.
   
 
Now break out the stamps again and the White marker.
 
 
Here is another shot of the center piece with the little flowers painted yellow and accented with black marker.
 


The front section and back section sides were stamped with 2 different stamps....just for fun.
 
Then the double stick tape is added. All that's left is putting it together. Glue on the Leaves and Flowers with lavender rhinestones in the center.
 
Load it up with a little crinkled paper and some candy, or use it to store your small tools on your work table.
 
It makes an adorable gift bag using just one side piece.
 
The possibilities are endless....use your creative imagination!
 
This is the PRIZE you can win by leaving a comment. Each comment on each blog gives you a chance to win.
 
GIVEAWAY will close on Sunday, August 24th @ at 11:59PM Central Time.
 
 
Now HOP to the other Artist's sites for more ideas, and don't forget to leave a comment here and on the other sites for chances to win the  GREAT PRIZE.
 
Make sure you leave us an email or some way to notify you if you win unless you have a Blogger account.

Your little caddy is so cute. It reminds me of the little fold-up carriers we use to get with bottles of pop when I was a kid. Your caddy would be so special to share some treats for a friend under the weather or a few little gifts for a hostess. Sooo many great uses!
Thank you so much for sharing your great tutorial! :)

It's mind boggling to me how someone can be SO creative and create things you need an engineering degree in, and make them beautiful! Only a woman could do it, meaning no disrespect towards men. But come on, these are seriously creative and beautiful. Great job designers!
