Eileen Hull & TCW Collab


Hey, Crafty Friends! I'm back with the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team and we are thrilled to be working with The Crafter's Workshop for this entire month of October. 

In today's post I'll be working with Eileen Hull's line of stamps along with TCW's stencils and luscious "Stencil Butters" to create this card...




Supplies Used
Eileen Hull- Wonderful World of Flowers Stamp Set (Marker Forte)
Eileen Hull- Button Cards & More Stamp Set (Marker Forte)
6x6 Stencil- Skeletal Leaf (TCW)
Stencil Butter- Marigold, Gamboge (TCW)
Versafine- Onyx Black (Imagine Crafts)
Alcohol Markers (Diamond Press)
Distress Oxide Inks- Mowed Lawn, Wild Honey, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo (Ranger)
MISTI (My Pretty Petunia)
Mint Tape (Scrapbook. com)
White Cardstock 
Palette knife
Heat Gun
Blending Brushes

I started by taping down paper I planned to Stencil on. I found some in my stash that looked like aged newsprint and taped it down with strip of Mint Tape. This tape is low tack and will not rip or damage the paper when removed. You can reuse several times (as you can tell in my pictures) so save those strips for later 😉. You can keep reusing them till they run out of tack- less waste.

Once my paper was secured down,  I took the TCW Skeletal Leaf Stencil and spread Gamboge then Marigold Stencil Butter over the design using a palette knife.


I used my heat tool to speed up drying time and to my surprise and delight it did not bubble whatsoever! It held up to heat very well!

Then, I shaded in the Leaf with Mowed Lawn and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink using a Blending brush. With the raised surface area created by the Stencil and Butters it was just more easier using a brush versus a sponge. The bristles of the brush move through the raised areas easier and can get in between all the little nooks- whereas a blending sponge or dauber could have issues of being torn from the ridges.

Next. I cut my paper down to 5.5

5"x 5" and then inked around the edges with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks.

I matted and layered fall shades of patterned paper together using my Xyron Mega Runner and attached them onto a 6" x 6" cardbase. 


I used the library card stamp, from the Eileen Hull Button Cards and More Stamp Set, in my MISTI and stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink.


I then did the same with the Flowers from the Wonderful World of Flowers set onto white cardstock and the quoted label from the Button Cards and More Set.

Then colored the in using my Diamond Press alcohol ink markers.


I fussy cut (handcut) all my stamped images and added a huge Rhinestone to the. Enter of the larger flower.

Then I attached these embellishments to the front of my card surrounding the Leaf. I also added a bit of foam adhesive  behind the large flower and quoted label cutouts for more added dimension. 

And here is my finished card...









I really love how this turned out, especially this color combo! Teal is Eileen's favorite color and it really pops off those fall colors!

This would be a great Fall/ Thanksgiving card or great Anyday/ Everyday card!

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!

And until next time...
HAPPY CRAFTING!!
