Creativation 2017 : Sizzix 1

6th February, 2017

Hello everyone. Apologies for the delay, I meant to come back on Friday with this post, but wasn’t very well. Today I am sharing first of two small contributions to the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Booth at Creativation.

iGirlZoe: Tim Holtz Creativation 2017For the first sample I used the new  Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations croc texture fade folder and sentiment words thinlits die set to make this Father’s Day card.

To start with, I embossed a piece of the chocolate brown idea-ology substrate with the new croc texture fades folder.

Using a piece of the white substrate, I die cut a prize ribbon and covered with fired brick distress ink. I aged a new idea-ology adornment star with fossilized amber distress paint and attached with collage matte medium.

I sanded an idea-ology cabinet card frame with a sanding grip and blended in vintage photo distress ink. I mounted over an image from the new etcetera paper stash by Tim Holtz.

I die cut “father’s day” using the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations sentiments words thinlits die set from classic kraft core and mounted over  a strip of metallic kraft stock. Finally, I mounted the layers onto the card and added some stitching with my sewing machine.
