Hi everyone, I'm back again with another project created for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 4 2019 Release.  I've created this Etcetera Tag featuring the new Colorize dies, Mr. Snowman and Deck the Halls.


If you go to the Sizzix site, search for your Colorize die, there is a YouTube video for each die, to assist you in assembling your die-cut.  So helpful!

Paint a Vignette Frame(TH93694) first with Ground Espresso Distress paint, let it dry.  Then dry brush Candied Apple Distress paint for this.

Tint Idea-ology Wood Slices(TH93745) with Bundled Sage Distress Spray stain and then adhere them to the top part of a Stampers Anonymous Mini Etcetera tag(ETC004) that has been covered with plaid paper from the Idea-ology mini Christmas paper stash.  With my craft knife, I cut down the   center lightly, then it should snap in half when pressure is put on it.  Lightly sand the edges to smooth it out.

Adhere your painted Vignette frame to the front of your covered tag.  Adhere the Mr. Snowman die-cut within the frame.  I had the one arm on the outside edge of the frame.

Die-cut all your Deck the Halls(664229) Colorize pieces.

These are adhered on top of the wood slices.  Add Rock Candy Glitter to parts of the foliage, ribbon and snowman.  A strip of dyed Mummy cloth was tied around the hole of the tag.

For the hanging 'Let It Snow" I die-cut my letters with Alphanumeric Classic Upper 1 1/2"Thinlits set 664223 and Shrink Plastic.  I used these ones by Ranger Ink, but I think they have been discontinued.  To shrink them, I used my Ranger Heat It Craft Tool and tweezers to hold the letter.  It will start to curl, but I keep a Tim Holtz Die Pick handy to hold it lightly on my glass mat.  The longer it is heated, it will straighten out.  You might want to practise a few first!  Before heating, I lightly color the letters with Alcohol ink(I think I used an older colour-Juniper or Aqua), this won't look like they've been coloured much, but they will darken when shrunk.

Adhere the letters to one of the die-cut garlands, tuck the ends under the snowman thumbs. Add in the die-cut stars to the garland also.  Add some clear Rock Candy Glitter.  I lightly coloured some Tim Holtz Mica Flakes and glued these underneath the snowman.
A Idea-ology Clippings sticker was attached under this on the frame.

This completes your Mr. Snowman tag!

Thanks so much for visiting,

Mr. Snowman is just the cutest, ever! I guess I will have to try the shrink plastic to see if I can get those small letters. I see on the Sizzix site that there are 3/8" Alpha dies coming next year. Whoo-Hoo!
