Sizzix Blog Hop – Eileen Hull Tea Cup

Blog Hopping again using Eileen Hull’s new Celebration die cuts by Sizzix .  This is the neatest die I have seen in a while tea cup die.

Mothers day is coming up so I thought I could create a little something for her.   I hand stamped cardstock with Hampton Art stamps and a variety of Chalk inks by Clearsnap .  I then cut out three teacups and three chipboard backers glued them together  with Aleene’ Original Tacky Glue and inked the edges with my all time favorite color – Chestnut Roan Chalk ink.  I repurposed a glass jar by adding a little paint.  I used Aleenes Tacky Glue to hold the skewers in place and also the tag on the front of the jar and stuffed the jar with glass beads.  The tag on the jar is made all from Sizzix  – an embossing folder, Tim Holtz alphabet, and a label die cut.

Friend, Wife, Mom and an all around crafty old soul. Artist, Writer, Creative Director and Style Maker. Lover of old, fond of the new. Craver of excitement, establisher of the calm. My website Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at
