Tim Holtz/Sizzix - True Love Colorize

Hi my friends, I'm sharing the three projects I made for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Everyday 2023 using True Love Colorize, Chapter 3 Collector, Alphanumeric Bulletin and Emporium Thinlits and the Entangled and Dotted Multi Level Texture Fades. 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'm starting off with the Love Is Sharing Chocolate Box card

I coloured Distress Watercolor card with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and die-cut using the large heart from True Love Colorize. I placed the heart in the Entangled Texture Fade and ran it through my die-cutting machine. I used Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink and a mini round blending tool to colour the raised sections on the heart.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Crochet Thinlits from Distress Watercolor card and sprayed with Distress Refresher which softens the card fibres to make them more flexible and fixed around the edge of the heart with Scor-Tape.
I die-cut the rest of the dies to create the box from Distress Kraft HeavyStock, Idea-ology Gold Metallic KraftStock and the left over card coloured with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and assembled.
I applied Sizzix Adhesive sheets to panels of Distress Watercolor Card and brown/cream and pink Classic KraftStock, die-cut the chocolates and assembled.
I fixed the chocolates to the base using Distress Collage Medium, added a few popped up on foam squares to add dimension. 
I fixed Idea-ology Gold Metallic Kraftstock to Distress Watercolor card, trimmed to create two 1/4" strips, scored and fixed to the box base and lid to create hinges. I die-cut a second heart from the card coloured with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink and fixed to what is now the inside of the box lid.
I die-cut another heart from Distress Kraft HeavyStock and fixed to the back of the card to hide the hinges and create a space to write a message.
I fixed Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to Distress Watercolor card, Idea-ology Gold Metallic KraftStock and brown Classic KraftStock and die-cut the wording using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Emporium and Alphanumeric Label Thinlits. I added extra heart embellishments die-cut using True Love Colorize.

I'll be back soon to share the Be My Valentine card and Chapter 3 Collector Pocket, both decorated using the True Love Colorize Thinlits. In the meantime, have fun with whatever you are creating,
Hugs Kath xxx
