Tim Holtz/Sizzix Chapter 4 - Mr Snowman

Hi my friends, the weather is definitely feeling Wintry in my neck of the woods and I suspect it won't be long until we have our first fall of snow so today I thought it was appropriate to share a card I made for the Facebook Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Chapter 4 dies featuring the adorable Mr Snowman, the latest in the Colorize Collection If you missed the launch on Facebook Live, you can pop over to Tim's blog and check out all the amazing Chapter 4 dies and admire the inspirational samples HERE.

To begin I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to measure 5.3/4" x 6.3/4" creating 2 panels. I die-cut Tim Holtz Sizzix Fanciful Snowflakes, Festive Repeat and Alphanumeric Classic Upper Thinlits from Distress Watercolor Card and fixed to the panels with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I painted the panels with a wash of Faded Jeans Distress Paint, wiped the paint off the die-cut sections with a damp cloth spritzed and added splatters of White Gesso to the background. I set the panel on the right aside to use on another project.

I die-cut a frame from Distress Watercolor card using the Stitched Rectangle Thinlits and fixed in place over the Festive Repeat die-cut.
I adhered Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to the back of Distress Watercolor card, Idea-ology Classic Kraftstock, which I had sanded back to reveal the kraft core, and Metallic KraftStock and die-cut all the pieces for Mr Snowman.
I lightly inked the white die-cut pieces with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and started the assembly which is easy peasy when all the pieces are self adhesive.
I placed Mr Snowman over the Festive Repeat Frame popped up on Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension and added Glossy Accents to his nose, eyes and mouth.

I added Idea-ology Small Talk Stickers and matted the panel on to a 5" x 7" White Card Blank.
Happy Christmas Crafting
