Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Christmas Element Stencils

Hi my friends, woohoo, the new Christmas collection of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils is shipping now worldwide so check out your favourite retailer and get your order in. You can join Tim and Mario on Saturday 22 October at 9am PT, 12pm ET and 5pm UK on Tim's YouTube Channel for the Live launch and check out all the festive makes and inspiration. I'm sharing cards I made with the Christmas Element Stencils from this collection, Distress Mica Stains and Distress Snowfall Grit Paste from the Tim holtz/Ranger Seasonal Holiday release.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to create 2 - 4" x 5,1/4" panels and applied Distress Snowfall Grit Paste through one of the Christmas Element stencils and the Snowflakes Layering Stencil on each panel and set aside to dry.

I spritzed Kitsch Flamingo/Evergreen Bough Distress Spray Stains on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water, dragged the panel through the ink and dried. I spritzed the panel with Cocktail Party and Merry Mint Distress Mica Stains, spritzed lightly with water and dried. I dabbed the Snowfall Grit Paste with a damp paper towel to remove the colour from the surface. I stamped the tree image from Tim Holtz/STAMPtember 2021 stamp set, inked with Black Soot Distress Archival ink. I added splatters of Distress Resist Spray, sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat set. To finish I matted the panel on to Idea-ology Black KraftStock and fixed to an A2 white card blank.

I repeated the process for the second card using Bundled Sage/Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, followed by Fresh Balsam and Winter Frost Distress Mica Stains. I added Idea-ology Label Tape trimmed to create separate sentiments and fixed to an A2 white card blank.
Have fun with whatever you are making. I'll be back tomorrow with a trio of Christmas makes using a super cool embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp.
