Oh Starry Night

27th November, 2017

Hello! Is it just me, or is November flying by?! Today I’m sharing a card I made for the Tim Holtz holiday inspiration series. Follow Tim on instagram and facebook to see inspiration throughout November and December. You can catch up with all the inspiration so far in week 1, week 2, week 3 and week 4.

Now to my card… I am ever so slightly in love with the new Stampers Anonymous starry stencil by Tim Holtz!

I sanded a piece of idea-ology metallic kraft stock with a sanding grip. Placed the starry stencil over the top and spread texture paste through it. Removed the stencil, sprinkled embossing powder over the top and set aside to allow the texture paste to air dry, before melting the embossing powder with a heat tool.

Using the stitched oval die, die cut distress mixed media heavystock. Stamped with the text stamp from stampers anonymous christmas nostalgia stamp set, (one of my all time favourite Tim Holtz seasonal stamps)! Using the stamp platform it was simple to line up the strip stamp to continue the pattern down the frame.

I trimmed a christmas paper doll, postmark and holiday greeting, stamped from the stampers anonymous holiday postmarks stamp set and adhered it to the card with distress collage medium.

**The christmas paper dolls are now sold out in most places but there are still some in stock HERE… but hurry!!**

Using the sidekick I die cut festive greens from distress mixed media heavystock that had been sprayed with distress spray stain. The pinecones were die cut from classic kraft stock, sanded and blended with vintage photo distress ink.

I painted fired brick distress paint onto one of the die cut pieces to simulate berries and give a pop of colour. I also added bells from the idea-ology tiny bells pack, they even jingle when you move the card, (SWOON)!!
