TIM HOLTZ CHA CARDS

Hi everyone!  Just sharing some cards I created for the Tim Holtz CHA booth.


The paper in this card is from the new collection, Correspondence. My feather is Sizzix's 660237 Tim Holtz Feather and Embossing duo die.  I love when there is a matching texture fade embossing folder included with the die!  The heart is also a Bigz die, 660233 Heartfelt, which has 11 different hearts on the one die.  I used Rock Candy Crackle paint on both of these.  These two dies are expected in stores, sometime in February. The plain vellum was embossed with Texture Fade 659448 Chevron & Lattice set.  I then used Distress markers to fill in some of the pattern. The little loop pin is new too, and great for hanging charms or embellishments.


If you loved Tim's last release of Framework dies as much as I did, you will need this one too!  It's called Wave (660027) and perfect for those background elements. I used three different colours of Distress sprays on this one. Sorry, I can't remember the combination, but I think one of them was Tattered Rose, one a brown tone, and the other a metallic. The Tea Time 660234 bigz die has two teacups, the saucer, and teabag.  The cups have a slit that cuts out, so you can tuck things in it.  I covered my chipboard teacup with patterned vellum from Tim's Wallflower Vellum collection and the clock is from the Vellum Ephemera collection. The butterflies (659575 Butterfly Frenzy) and flower (657492 Tattered Pinecone) were also made with the patterned vellum.  The rub-ons are Idea-ology Remnant rubs (Elements and the new Special Delivery).  The word, Love, is die-cut from Tim Holtz Sizzix 660056 Alphanumeric 3/4" letter thinlits.  I cut out three of each and layered them on top of each other, for more dimension.  My background paper is from Tim's Resist Paper Stash Motif.  This pad of paper has different resist patterns printed on plain or kraft cardstock and comes in different sizes of patterns, as all his paper pads.  I love using this when I don't have matching cardstock, or I want a faint pattern.  I just ink it in coordinating colours.  You can go lighter or darker wherever you want, awesome stuff!


This card is using the new Correspondence paper collection and tissue tape.  My bird die is from last year's release, Birds in Flight 659425.  Love this die, … as I love anything with birds.  I die-cut it from the patterned paper and using my Ranger Melting Pot with Utee (thicker clear embossing powder), I dipped my bird die-cut into the pot.  This gives the die-cut a enamel look.  The little clouds are one of the new releases, Movers & Shapers Mini Airplane & Cloud set.  I covered these with paper and tissue tape.  The star paper is also from the Resist Paper Stash pad.

I think I had one or two more cards, but I was in such a hurry to send them off, I forgot to take photos.  I can't even remember what they looked like!  I'm always in a panic to get them in before the deadline, worrying they won't get there in time.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jan

These cards are wonderful. Loving all your layers and texture. I think the teacup and wallflower are a perfect combo.

You know, I love the Utee and have some forever also the melting pot…I need to be getting them out and use them. I basically need a bigger table. Because if it's not on my desk or within reach I forget. Thanks for the reminder. Also the use of vellum is always inspiring.
