  1. ‘Tis The Season

    20th November, 2017 by iGirlZoe

    Hello again. I’m back with a card I made for the Tim Holtz holiday inspiration series. Throughout November and December Tim will be sharing projects by some of his crafty friends, to provide some inspiration to get you creative during the holiday season. Follow Tim on facebook and instagram and his blog for the recap each Saturday.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    I wanted to make a card that I could recreate to send out this holiday season. It needed to be quick, easy and relatively light on consumables to make it affordable to send out lots. For me, that’s when stamps and dies come into their own.

    iGirlZoe: Tis the Season
    I began by stamping directly onto an A6 kraft card with the tree stamp from the Stampers Anonymous great outdoors set by Tim Holtz. Stamping in peeled paint distress ink, varying the height to give a more natural tree line.

    I cut a strip of kraft cardstock to fit the width of the card. Blending candied apple distress ink through the Stampers Anonymous plaid stencil by Tim Hotlz, (one of my favourites from this season). See how here. Using the stamp platform, stamp the merry christmas background stamp along the bottom of the card with vintage photo distress archival ink.

    Using the new trusty sidekick, die cut the festive greens from classic kraft stock, sand with a sanding grip, blend in vintage photo distress ink and adhere with distress collage medium. Cover idea-ology baubles with red pepper alcohol ink and adhere with collage medium.

    Stamp the wood slice, stag and “tis the season” stamps onto distress mixed media heavystock, fussy cut and blend in vintage photo distress ink. Mound the wood slice over the festive greens with 3D foam.

    Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to catch up with all the projects from week 3 for more holiday inspiration. I’ll be back later this week with some pages from the inside of my Tim Holtz inspired December Daily Album.

    Have a great week!
    Cheers
