Tim Holtz Worn Wallpaper and Crackled Pumpkin Card


Hi there!  Today I'm sharing another card I made with the Tim Holtz Bigz Pumpkin Patch die my friend Carol shared with me.  I wanted to try completely changing the color of some of Tim's Worn Wallpaper  to coordinate with my fall projects. 


I cut a panel to size and dipped in a Dried Marigold, Fossilized Amber and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks, then crinkled up and stitched around it.   Here's a before shot (bottom right).  See the transformation!  This material is AMAZING and inks so beautifully...

For the pumpkin I didn't remove the slice cutouts from the design when I cut it.  I carefully taped then down on the back to keep them put, then applied DecoArt crackle paste over the entire pumpkin, minus the stem.  When the cracks had set and things were dry, I scraped away to get an even more work effect, then stained the stem and peeled paint with Vintage Photo.  The little leaf at the top is from the Funky Foliage die set.  It was the perfect shape for a topper!


My layers include a scrap of stamped plaid, a crackled corrugated base, a painted Scroll die (Butterscotch Adirondack then dipped in Rusty Hinge DI), Fall Foliage dies stained with Crushed Olive and Rusty Hinge and a handmade flower from the Tattered Florals die.  I tucked in some sisal fibers and a loopy bow made with Tim's jute twine. 


I made about eight flowers for my fall cards and have used all but one!  I guess it's time to have a poinsettia making marathon...  :)  Wishing you a day filled with love and gratitude!

This card really does evoke Autumn. All the lovely golden colours and crinkly crunchy flower and leaves work so well The pumpkin and wallpaper are both amazing transformations. Cant wait to see what you do with all your poinsettias once they are made. x
