Tim Holtz/Sizzix Chapter 1 - Oliver Colorize

Hi my friends, I'm sharing the Baby Display Hanger project I made for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix 2021 Chapter 1 release using the gorgeous Oliver Colorize, Stretch Lower and Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits. If you missed the Live launch, pop over to Tim's Blog HERE where you can check out the whole collection, watch the YouTube Live and see all the amazing inspirational makes listed under each Maker.

I began by trimming panels of  Sizzix Making Essentials Eclectic Colors which has a linen look texture and Distress Watercolor card to create the banner, added shadows to the edges of each layer with Walnut Stain Distress ink and applied Speckled Egg Distress Ink through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Hearts Layering Stencil on the top layer. I fixed the layers in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte and machine stitched each layer using white thread. I fixed Sizzix Adhesive sheet to Distress Watercolor card and die-cut BABY 4 times using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stretch Lower Thinlits and layered to create dimension. I die-cut various sizes of hearts from the Sizzix cardstock and Distress Watercolor card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartfelt BigZ die, added yellow Eclectic Elements Thread and fixed the hearts in place using Distress Collage Medium.
I die-cut BOY,  the extra O's from Distress Watercolor card and the small crosses from Sizzix Yellow Cardstock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bold Thinlits and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte
I fixed Sizzix Adhesive sheet to Sizzix Neutral Cardstock and Distress Watercolor card, die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Oliver Colorize and assembled following the indent markings on each die-cut. I fixed the grassy tuft in place with Distress Collage Medium and Oliver popped up on Sizzix Foam Adhesive.
I added Glossy Accents to his nose and dots to the centre of the crosses using a Sakura Black Glaze pen.
I attached an Idea-ology Dislay Hanger to the top of the banner, added an Idea-ology ChitChat sticker and a double bow using pale blue ribbon from my stash.

I'll be back tomorrow to share some winter snowflake cards, in the meantime, stay cosy and have fun with whatever you are creating
