Tim Holtz New Release Sizzix Dies for Creativation 2017


Hello everyone!  Today I thought I would wrap up my Creativation designs created for Tim Holtz for Creativation 2017.  I hadn't meant to drag these posts out, but I have been one busy girl.  This card was not received in the show, but I love it so much.  It is much more striking in person, as are all of my neutral, grungy palette projects.  I cut the bird die from watercolor paper, then dipped the cutout into my Distress Ink puddles to color.  I layered over a gessoed printed paper panel and adhered with Mod Podge beneath and on top.  It gave the project such a cool leathery feel.  I cut a word from inky paper and layered over the new gold kraft core.  The hexagon brads are a favorite!



This little number did make it into the show.  I inked up a sheet of watercolor and then embossed with the new leafy embossing folder.  Simple layering of metallic craft core and stitching, highlighted with a few sequins.



This final card was sent as a thank you to Tim for allowing me to create for him.  I used colored kraft core and sanded it to reveal the embossing folder pattern.  A dear friend loaned me this elephant stamp that Tim designed about a decade ago, at the beginning of his career.  I just love it!


A very masculine and dark palette.  I loved the chipboard wildflowers inked up like this.


I am so looking forward to seeing what you all do with the new products.  I went to a local stamp convention this weekend, in hopes of picking up some of the new floral embossing folders and stamps.  They weren't out yet, nor was the new little house die.  I did enjoy getting the new Distress Oxide pads and have enjoyed playing with them, as you know.  


 Have a wonderful day!

What fabulous projects Autumn - to my eyes they were all worthy of selection.... but then I may be a bit biased. Love the magenta coloured one with the contrast of the blue/green in it.

Well I love that we got to enjoy the projects over a few blog posts, so we could drool over each and every one. I adore that bird die and the green/magenta card is delicious. I'm sure Tim enjoyed receiving one of his first "Babies" back as a thank you and I can't wait for the Distress Oxides to make it down under.

All three cards are lovely, but I am rather partial to that Elephant! It is sketchy but very very sweet!

Hazel Agnew said...

I love them all Autumn, and keep changing my mind about which one is my favourite. What a great idea to die cut and then dip into your inks. Will try that. You must be on cloud nine to be able to produce goodies for Tim, and it is so well deserved! Thanks for sharing them. Xx
