Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a step-by-step Sizzix tutorial using Karen Burniston's new Journey collection. You can see all the dies here, each one is so much fun and they work wonderfully together and in combination with Karen's previous collections.
One of my favourite dies from the Journey collection is the Flower & Heart, which die cuts five perfect little hearts. I had a left over piece of mat board which had been covered with old book paper and die cut hearts from that.
To further embellish my little indoor scene, I printed two photos in two different sizes. We always have cars everywhere you look, so I stamped two small cars. The books were stamped, inked and cut out, to be placed on the table and the room needed a little clock on the wall. I also used my favourite Birds on a Wire die (but for the outside), the birds were inked with Bundled Sage and Gathered Twigs. I ended up only using one of them. I also found a little heart ribbon as a table cloth.
Adhere the sticky-back canvas chair on top of the cardstock one and glue the photo to the chair. I cut a little pillow from cream felt. Looks cozy, doesn't it?
I placed a tiny photo in the frame. The clock was coated with Glossy Accents and left to dry before gluing it to the wall. I used a Distress Marker to add some detail to the lamp shade. Glue a ribbon table cloth to the table and place small stamped items on top.
You can see the texture of the embossing powder and Glossy Accents better on this photo.
I used Core'dinations Tim Holtz Distress Color-Core cardstock (Bundled Sage) for the base. The front was embossed with the Bricked folder, sanded and inked with Gathered Twigs.
Mount the panels with foam dots and colour the handle with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint before gluing it to the door. Adhere the door to a piece of torn old book paper and tape to the background.
Thank you for joining me in this tutorial!
