Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Holiday Things and Bold Tidings Mini

Happy Friday my friends, I'm sharing the cards I made for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Christmas 2021 stamps and stencils using Holiday Things and Bold Tidings Mini. If you missed the Live, you can check out all the fabulous new products and inspirational projects from the makers on Tim's blog HERE or YouTube Channel HERE.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to create 6 - Mini Slimline panels. I smooshed Distress Oxide inks (L to R Iced Spruce, Shabby Shutters, Frayed Burlap. Stormy Sky. Old Paper and Hickory Smoke) on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and tapped the panels into the inks to create soft neutral backgrounds.
I stamped the images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Holiday Things with the same inks to create a tone-on-tone effect on the backgrounds.
I stamped the sentiments from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bold Tidings Mini, inked with Black Soot, Ground Espresso, Barn Door Distress Archival inks and Versamark ink, heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing powder. I stamped extra Holiday Things images, inked with Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo Distress Archival inks.
I stamped extra stars on 2 of the panels using StazOn Gold Metallic and flicked on Distress Mica Stains to add some Christmas sparkle.
I flicked Distress Resist Spray on to the panels, sprinkled with Gold and Silver Embossing Powders and heat set. To finish I scored and folded white cardstock to make top-folding 3.1/4" x 6.1/4" Slimline cards, covered with Idea-ology Gold and Silver Metallic KraftStock and fixed the stamped panels in place with Distress Collage Medium.

Enjoy your weekend my friends and have fun with whatever you are making.
Hugs Kath xxx
