Winter Wishes

Hi Folks, I'm sharing one of the projects I made for the Facebook Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Chapter 4 release. 
If you missed the Facebook Live launch, you can hop over to Tim's blog and check out the new dies and inspiration samples HERE.
I created a Winter Wishes Home Decor panel using Alpine, Fanciful Snowflakes and Alphanumeric Classic Upper and Lower Thinlits from the Chapter 4 Release.

I began by inking one of the background stamps from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Perfect Plaids with Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink and stamped repeatedly to cover a sheet of 8.1/4" x 11" Distress Watercolor card. I used the metal edge of Tim Holtz Design Ruler to tear the edges to create a panel measuring 7.1/2" x 9.1/2".
I machine stitched a couple of times around the edges of the plaid panel and added a 5" x 7" panel of Distress Watercolor card coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink using the watercolour smooshing technique. I die-cut Fanciful Snowflakes from Distress Watercolor card coloured with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink, laid the snowflakes in place and stitched the panel to the plaid background.
I die-cut "Winter Wishes" 4 times from white card using Alphanumeric Classic Upper and Lower Thinlits, layered to create dimension and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I die-cut the Alpine Thinlits from white card and Distress Watercolor Card coloured with Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Sprays, added shadows to the edges of the die-cuts using Ground Espresso Distress ink and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte following the guide lines left by the dies.
I inked the Plaid Background with Peeled Paint Distress Archival ink, stamped on to scraps of white card, die-cut the Fanciful Snowflakes and fixed offset over the existing snowflakes. 
I added splatters of Picket Fence and Ground Espresso Distress Paints to the background.
I applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium Matte to the mountain tops and alphabet letters, sprinkled with Distress Rock Candy Glitter and once it had dried, add dots of Ranger White Enamel Accents to mountains.
I stamped the plaid background inked with Barn Door Distress Archival on to scraps of card and die-cut the Alphanumeric Classic Upper "W" and trees from Alpine. I also die-cut trees from white card and card coloured with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink and fixed in place. To finish I added a Crinkle Ribbon and twine bow and matted the panel on to white and red cardstock to create an 8" x 10" panel.
Simon Says Stamp latest release, Cheer and Joy, launches Thursday at midnight EST and here's a sneaky peek of what I've made and will be sharing tomorrow.

Happy Crafting
