The design team are featuring

Tim Holtz Sizzix logo

 products on our cards this week.

On today's card I am featuring my favourite paper crafting tools by Tim Holtz, the Guillotine Confort Paper Trimmer  Scissors. I have 3 sizes of the scissors, 9.5", 7" & the 5" mini snips and use these all the time for pretty much everything I need scissors for.

I literally had no idea where I was going with this card or even what products I was going to use as I'm sure like most crafters I have a huge supply of Tim Holtz products. 

I began by heat embossing Simon Says Stamps Merry Christmas sentiment stamp and some snowflakes from Christmas Cheer stamp set. I then blended Picked Raspberry, Victorian Velvet & Spun Sugar Distress Inks over my background & added some splashes of water, Distress Inks & gouache over it. 

I created a larger background on white card stock by stenciling some stars on it using texture paste & then I decided it was much too plain & just didn't look right so then added embellishments, lots of embellishments!

On today's card I am featuring Simon Say Stamps exclusive beautiful Winter Flowers Clear Stamps & Everything Winter Sentiment Strips.

I stamped my images onto Canson XL Watercolor paper using Ink On 3 No Line Fadout ink pad & then water coloured them using Altenew watercolour pans.

I heat embossed some stars from the Party Like A PandaFairy Tale Spinners stamp sets, using Simon Says Stamps Clear Embossing Ink Pad & White Fine Detail Embossing Powder & then gave my background a watercolour wash, adding deeper colours until I reached the desired colour. I doodled over where the dotted lines are on the stamped images are using a white gel pen as with using a No Line Fadeout ink pad they were pretty much impossible to see. My dotted lines aren't perfect but I'm glad I went over them as the white looks lovely with the poinsettias.

I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Everything Winter Sentiment Strips & embellished my card with some Pearls, Sequins, Simply White Crystal Drops & Gouache.

On today's card I am featuring Honey Bee Balloon Card Borders & Log Cabin Gem Stickers. The sticker set I used is currently out of stock but there are lots of other Honey Bee Gem Stickers available here.

I die cut the Balloons with Lawn Fawn's Hello Sunshine Remix 6x6 papers and mounted them onto fun foam ready to attach to my card.

I created a simple ink blended background using Broken China distress ink and added some clouds freehand using white gouache.  

  When I was creating my card I also had Simon Says Stamps Fairy Tale Spinners stamp set from the latest Send Happiness release on my desk awaiting an inking so I decided to add a fairy image from the Fairy tales stamp setI stamped my image using Simon Says Stamps Intense Black Ink Padcoloured it with my copics & then fussy cut it. 

I heat embossed a sentiment and some stars from the same Fairy Tale Spinners stamp set using Nuvo Classic Silver Embossing Powder & assembled my card.

On today's card I am featuring Lawn Fawn's Rolled Roses Dies & Hello Sunshine Remx 6x6 paper pad 

To create my roses I blended Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserve & Milled Lavender distress inks onto both sides of pieces of white card stock and once dry I die cut the card stock using the Rolled Roses dies and assembled them. I thought the roses go perfectly with the roses on one of the gnomes hats from Simon Says Stamps adorable Spring Gnomes stamp set, so I stamped two of the gnomes and coloured them with my copics & then fussy cut them.

My shaker was created using Whimsy Stamps Checker background wafer die which I die cut using Simon Says Stamps Wood Grain card stock & I literally did a pick and mix selection of sequins to add to my shaker.

I've stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Flowers stamp set using Simon Says Stamps Intense Black Ink Pad to add to my card & then added a few pretty Studio Katia Foil Pearls.
