Burlap Butterfly Panel with Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Cuts for Creativation 2017


I'm still working my way through sharing my Creativation 2017 samples, which I made for Tim Holtz and his Sizzix line.  I was just delighted to have the opportunity to work with the new Small Detailed Butterflies dies.  These are absolutely STUNNING!  I am really amazed with the life-likeness of the design and love that the set includes a solid backing.  I didn't use it here, but did use it for THIS project for Simon Says Stamp and in my other Creativation project HERE.


We were encouraged to make small projects for the show, given the limited space for display.  I created a hefty little burlap covered board using Tim's Textured Surfaces, which are strongly adhesive surfaces, including burlap, cork, and corrugated board.  I cut a heavy piece of chipboard to size, then wrapped it with the adhesive burlap.  Next, I glued on another piece of heavy chipboard over the burlap, then covered with Tim's Correspondence paper stash.  This created a really hefty surface, with lots of dimension.  



I have tried many ways of altering these dies, this time I cut from chipboard, then used Distress Crayons to color.  It's not quite as textured as my rusty butterflies, but I love it!


More flowers with the new Small Tattered Florals set.  I cut from the same paper pack and inked.  I love the printed text showing through the ink.  :)  The red label is from the Christmas paper stash, stamped with a favorite sentiment.


I just adore Tim's Hex Fasteners.  What a cool shape!  I used a variety of other Tim Holtz dies to build this composition.  The branch is included in the Small Tattered Florals set.  I added some Walnut Stain embossing powder for texture.  I hope you are inspired today!  Thank you for your visit and support.
