Eileen Hull Designs Chapter 4 Release

 Hello and welcome!


There is great excitement in the Eileen Hull Camp today as two new Scoreboards are released. We have all had sooo much fun playing with these wonderful dies and you will be amazed at the wonderful projects that have been created. 


So do please join our Blog Hop and Release Party. You can click the link HERE to go to the main Blog Hop post where all the Inspiration and Educator Creators taking part in the Blog Hop are listed or keep scrolling and click on the links at the end of this post. Leave a comment on each designer's post to be entered to win the Post Box die and also join us for the Facebook Live Release Party tomorrow to be entered to win the Teacup Die. Random winners will be picked and announced on Tuesday's Facebook Live! 


I decided to concentrate on the tea cup and made this shabby chic fun whimsical china cup full of flowers, rosettes and other ephemera.


I used a napkin to create the "china cup" feel. This has been layered onto the die cut and then crackled with Deco Art Crackle Glaze.


I have used gold paint around the edges of the cup and spoon to add that old china tea set look. The decoration on the spoon was a gold rub on.


I just love that spoon! I used a small part of the napkin to create the china crackle effect.


There is a "separator" as part of the die which allows two cups to be put together to create a cup to fill. I cut mine down to half the size so I could get the cup sitting on the cotton reel. But it still gave enough room to add plenty of embellishments.


I got a bit of height at the back by adding three rosettes of different sizes. Then I stuffed the box with some tissue paper which gave me a base to adhere the other elements. In places it was easier to use sticky pads rather than waiting for the glue to dry!

So what not to love !!!! These dies are going to be spectacularly popular so keep a look out here in the UK for stockists, particularly Country View Crafts who hope to be stocking both dies shortly.

Thank you for joining me today and have fun hopping and see you at the Release Party later!!

Wow-I love the whole combination. The little Tim Holtz ballet paper doll and the wooden spool are perfect with it. Usually I am not a big fan of paper tissue decoupage.But for this project it`s perfect. The crackle effect and the golden details on the cup and especially the spoon make it look like old china my granny used to have. So pretty !

Sandy Spielberger said...

Oh wow- this makes me think of my Oma`s old china cups-Just love your project!
