Hi everyone! Today I (Anna-Karin) have a happy little Sizzix Inspiration project to share with you, a 3-D oven made with Eileen Hull's 3-D Oven Sizzix ScoreBoards die from her Vintage Kitchen collection.
I love making 3-D projects and Eileen's Scoreboards dies make it so easy. For this oven, I had a loved and worn 1950s oven in mind, embellished with some fun items. Make it for yourself or as a gift for someone. Children will also love to make an oven of their own. My son and nephew each made one this weekend and had fun embellishing it and filling it with little things they found in my craft stash. Make sure to supervise children when using the Big Shot machine.
The oven is also a drawer, so you can tuck a tiny gift inside. If you put a handle on the oven, it is easier to open. I used a Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener as my handle.
The oven was die cut from White Mat Board. This is an XL die so you need the Extended Cutting Pads. Use this sandwich: Extended Cutting Pad, die facing up, mat board, second Extended Cutting Pad. I painted the oven with Evergreen Bough Distress Paint and when dry, sanded it quite a lot, revealing the white of the mat board. It was white embossed using the lovely Looped Flower Pattern stamp by Hero Arts. Ink the edges slightly with Gathered Twigs, but don't cover up all the white.
I stamped a sentiment on the back of the oven also using a stamp by Hero Arts.
I wanted to embellish the top of the oven. The four oven plates were die cut from Core'dinations cardstock with the Circles and Tags Sizzix Framelits and Stamps set. To make the cute pitcher, jar and spoons, I die cut them from shrink plastic, using Eileen's Kitchen Labels Sizzix Framelits and Mug and Spoon Sizzix Bigz dies. Shrink the plastic according to the instructions on the package. The spoons were coloured with Silver Mixative Alcohol Ink.
The jar was coloured with Snow Cap and Silver Mixative, and I used acrylic paint for the pitcher. Both of them were coated with a layer of Glossy Accents.
I used a piece of plastic packaging for the oven window and aged it with brown alcohol inks. It was also stamped with a sentiment stamp.
The oven was embellished with a Tim Holtz Heart Charm, attached with a tiny brad.
I also glued a wood veneer woman to the oven. You can add lots more embellishments if you want to.
Thank you for looking at my post!
