CHA 2016 Tim Holtz Booth Samples

16th February, 2016

Hello! I’m so excited to share the samples that I made for CHA 2016 for the Tim Holtz booths. It was such a dream to be asked and I won’t pretend it wasn’t completely thrilling when the box of new products arrived in the post.

iGirlZoe: CHA 2016 Tim Holtz BoothThis sample was created for the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix booth and focused around the new texture fades plus sign embossing folder.

I covered manila cardstock with foil tape and embossed with the plus sign folder. I cut out the center to create a frame, fussy cutting around the plus signs. I then covered with black soot distress paint, wiped away the excess and applied alcohol inks to give an ionized metallic look, (see technique here).

I die cut “Genuine” from the thinlits friendship word set and mounted over idea-ology linen ribbon.The frame was mounted over the new idea-ology linen. This stuff is super cool and adhesive backed which makes it so easy to use. I added a fussy cut found relatives card and mounted onto a sheet of paper from the new Dapper paper stack.

A big thank you to Paula, Mario and Tim for inviting me! I’m still convinced that I will wake up at any moment!
