Artist Trading Block Collaboration

In March 2015 we hosted a collaboration between our fantastic Design Team and the Inspiration Team over at Sizzix Die Designer Eileen Hull’s website.
We were so thrilled with the results that we thought we’d make a “forever” page of the projects.
You can view that page HERE and click on each one to be taken to that designers tutorial or blog post on the block she made.

The die we used makes a block like this –  (you can buy it online by clicking on the picture) –
It also has a magnetic opening in it so you can use any of your Movers and Shapers dies to cut out peek holes
in one or two sides of your cube. Super versatile!

We used the BEAUTIFUL Sizzix Matboard to create our blocks. It takes all kinds of stamping and ink just beautifully.
Our team used the cream (linked to the picture so you can buy online), but it also comes in white and black!
It’s sized perfectly to fit through your Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

  3. Stamp PenPattern Butterfly on white cardstock and color with colored pencil.
  4. Use matching die to cut out butterfly and adhere to card front by applying Zip Dry to Butterfly Body
  5. Glue to card base.



Fiesta Plate & Kaffee Klatsch Bowl by NK Studios


From Stampendous:
NKCRS05 Cling Kaffee KlatschUntitled-1

Creative Paperclay®  Modeling Material
Brilliant Blue, Brilliant Yellow Green, & Raw Umber Acrylic Paint by Liquitex®
Pouring Medium by Liquitex®

Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives


  1. For this bowl I rolled a piece of Paper Clay into a little ball and then rolled it out with a rolling pin to a flat wonky circle.
  2. I then stamped into the clay with some of my Kaffee Klatsch Stamps. You don’t need to press to hard to get a nice sharp impression. I found a bowl where I liked the shape on the bottom as a guide – since I wanted mine to be not a high bowl and a bit quirky – and pressed the top onto the clay to cut out a nice circle.
  3. Next I formed the clay circle into the bottom of the bowl. I let everything in the bowl dry for 12 hours and then carefully took the new paper clay bowl out. Since the moisture in the paper clay mostly is evaporated by then it shrinks a bit so that it is easy to get it out of the template bowl. It was still a bit moist on the bottom since now air could get there so I just put the paper clay bowl upside down and let it dry for another 12 hours.
    I did the same steps with the plate – just using a plate as a template and the Fiesta Stamp set for the Impressions.
  4. Once they both were dry I used Liquitex Soft Body paint thinly over the surfaces, waited a couple seconds and then using a paper towel rubbed some of the paint off again, so that the impressions were more colored and more prominent. That way the texture really popped off. For the plate I used two colors to and blended them. I painted outside of the bowl and the bottom of the plate and then everything dry again. I applied some Liquitex Transparent Raw Amber Acrylic Ink over the circle impression of the bowl to have it pop up even more and to give it some patina and let that dry again.
  5. To finish everything off I coated the bowl and plate with Liquitex Pouring Medium which gave it a nice shiny glossy and glass like look and feel. I coated it twice leaving a couple hours in between for curing.
