Tim Holtz/Sizzix - PaperCut Cafe Clock

Hi my friends, I'm sharing the clock I decorated for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Everyday 2023 release using PaperCut Cafe and Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits. If you missed the Live, you can check out the new release and all the amazing makes over on Tim's YouTube Channel HERE or Tim's Blog HERE.

I began by covering an 8" round chipboard blank with 2" squares of paper from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Christmas Backdrops and Memoranda 12 x 12 Paper Pad, fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium and used my trusty Dremel to drill a hole for the clock movement.
I die-cut the numerals for the clock from Sizzix Cork Texture Roll and Distress Mixed Media HeavyStock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium. I sanded the edge of the clock to remove any excess paper.
I fixed Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to brown tones of Idea-ology Classic KraftStock and Distress Mixed Media HeavyStock, die-cut the tea and coffee cups using Tim Holtz/Sizzix PaperCut Cafe Thinlits, assembled and fixed to the clock face in place of the numbers between 12 - 3 - 6 and 9.
I die-cut the words TEA and COFFEE from Distress Mixed Media HeavyStock using the Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits and fixed in the centre of the clock face.
I painted the clock hands with Antique Linen Distress Paint, tapped with a Versamark ink pad, sprinkled with Antique Linen Distress Embossing Glaze, heat set and fixed to the spindle on the clock mechanism.

To finish I die-cut hearts from the pink plaid paper using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Falling Hearts Thinlits, fixed to some of the cups and applied a coat of Ranger Glossy Accents.

I'll be back soon to share the coasters I made to match the clock. Have fun with whatever you are creating.
