Eileen Hull / Stampendous ATB Blog Hop

Hello!  If you have not been to my blog before - then Welcome!

I am so thrilled to be part of a wonderful Blog Hop between the talented Designer, Eileen Hull and the wonderful Stampendous and their respective Inspiration and Design Teams!  All week long the teams have been using Eileen's Artist Trading Blocks to make some fabulous creations!


I was given three wonderful sets of stamps to use as you will see below, although in the end I did not use them all - well not yet anyway!

 The stamps from left to right are:
Stampendous - Cling Wild Roses - CRR191
Stampendous - Say It Today - SSC1190 (not used in my project)
Stampendous - Butterflies - SSC028

I used the flower stamp to create a background for the larger block and I cut and watercoloured an extra layer of flowers, to give the flowers some dimension. 
Part of the larger flower stamp was used to create a background for the smaller block.  I also used Stampendous Cling Butterfly Post (CRP147) on the larger block.  The butterfly matched one of the butterflies from the clear Butterflies cling set SSC028.  I stamped this, coloured it and layered it up on the other two sides of the larger block.
In the view above, you can see more of the flower stamp and also the tiny butterflies from the butterfly stamp set.  To finish the top I attached a beautiful little rose shaped knob, from my stash.
I painted and crackled the spool feet using DecoArt products.  The base card, flowers and butterflies have been coloured using watercolour pencils and paints.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut out loads of butterflies, which I did not use in the end, I think I will just have to make another project now!

You can see more of the wonderful work by the Blog Hop participants from both Eileen's Inspiration Team and Stampendous Design Team, if you want to catch up, by following these links:

Today, you can also see work from Eileen's Inspiration Team here:
Anne Redfern (that's me!)
 
and from the Stampendous Design Team

There are fabulous prizes on offer too; three random winners will be chosen from all the blogs participating in the hop and from the randomly drawn winners there will also be one winner of a GRAND PRIZE.  Two of the winners will receive Stampendous PenPattern Petal and PenPattern Flutter cling stamps.  They will 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 above, a whole package of matboard AND the Sizzix die to cut your own ATB's. 

The comment deadline for the hop is extended to Sunday March 8th 2015 to give you plenty of time to see and comment on the participating blogs.

Eligibility for these amazing prize packages also includes international fans too.

.  If you are joining in the hop and you get lost along the way, Stampendous will post a cumulative list of links so far on Saturday Feb 28 and on Saturday 7 March.

Thanks for looking, hope to see you again soon!  Hugs, Anne xx

  1. Stunning!!! These are very beautiful indeed Anne. The stamped backgrounds are totally gorgeous and your fussy cut butterflies sublime. Love the little knob too - how sweet! Your weathered spools make brilliant feet - the height of these and the knob works wonderfully. Stunning work as always Anne. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Nicola x

  30. I am always amazed at the various styles of ATBs you create making each so unique.
    This is exquisite from the beautiful stamping which you have coloured to perfection to the use of the wooden spools (I wonder if we have been shopping on the same site as very recently, I bought some that look exactly like those!), fabulous crackling on them. The rose is a special finishing touch.
    This is sheer class!
