Time For A Vacation...

Hi my friends, I'm sharing the last project I made for Creativation 2020 and the Tim Holtz Facebook Live featuring Sizzix Chapter 2 dies using the adorable Gertrude Colorize Thinlits and Baggage Claim BigZ die. If you missed the Facebook Live, you can check out all the amazing products coming your way on April 1st and the inspirational samples over on Tim's blog HERE.
I began by fixing Tim Holtz/Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to Idea-ology Classic KraftStock which I sanded back to reveal the kraft core and die-cut all the pieces from different colours of KraftStock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Gertrude Colorize Thinlits.
The Adhesive Sheets make it so easy to build up the layers when constructing any of the Colorize Thinlits and especially useful when it comes to fixing down the teeny weeny bits and pieces.
I covered a Vignette Tray with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Abandoned papers using Distress Collage Medium Matte, sanded the edges to get rid of any excess paper and fixed Idea-ology Chatter Design Tape to neaten the edges. I applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium Matte over the Design Tape to ensure it stayed in place. I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Baggage Claim BigZ dies to die-cut the suitcases, handles, buckles and closures from Sizzix Matboard, various colours of Classic Kraftstock, sanded back to reveal the kraft core and Metallic 1 KraftStock, fixed the KraftStock die-cuts to the Matboard die-cuts using Distress Collage Medium Matte to create chunkier and more stable suitcases and inked the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink. I fixed Idea-ology Ephemera to the back of the Vignette Tray popped up on Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive and added die-cut letters to spell the word "TRAVEL" die cut from several layers of Distress Watercolor card and Classic KraftStock to create dimension using Tim|Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Classic Thinlits. I fixed the suitcases in place with layers of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive and added Gertrude along with her Mummy Cloth scarf.
To finish I added Idea-ology Snarky Stickers

I'll be back tomorrow to share another card using the other half of Wednesday's Alcohol Ink and Alcohol Alloy Ink bright and shiny background.
Toodle-oo for now
