Tim Holtz Watercolor Mother’s Day Cards with Butterflies

May 1st, 2015

Karen N here today sharing with you several Mother’s Day cards I made using the fabulous Stamper’s Anomymous Watercolor stamps by Tim Holtz and many of the Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Here’s a video showing you all the cards close-up with descriptions of what I did:

Here’s my first card:

cah-butterfly1

In this card, I heat embossed the butterfly using some silver pearl embossing powder.  I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Broken China, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry and a Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add color through a stencil.  I have piles of these things that I just do not use enough!  The white-silver embossing resists the distress ink.  Suck a pretty effect.  I then stamped a sentiment and added some lace, ribbon and bling.  The solid paper border is from Celebra’tions Assorted Solids.

Here’s my second card:

cah-butterfly2

In this card, I used paper from Heartfelt Creations Birds and Blooms.  Such pretty paper!  I used the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add Tim Holtz Distress ink in Cracked Pistachio and Broken China directly to the stamp.  I then stamped onto Vellum and fussy cut a few out.  The pearls cover the glue dots.  I added some lace, ribbons and pearls.  I love that dimensional butterfly, don’t you?

Here’s my third card:

cah-butterfly3

 

On this card, I daubered Tim Holtz distress paint in Picket Fence onto white cardstock.  I then used the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool to add Broken China and Cracked Pistachio ink.  Again, the distress paint acts as a resist.  I think VERY lightly sprayed water to make it have a dapple effect.  I stamped the butterfly (using Celebra’tions Ink in Berry Black) onto vellum and colored the back of the butterfly.  I added the sentiment, some lace and ribbons and some sequins.

And my final card for today:

cah-butterfly4

In this card, again, I used a stencil and the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending tool this time with Cracked Pistachio, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord.  I stamped the butterflies and heat embossed them with black powder.  I colored the images with the same colors as the background.  I added the sentiment, some lace, ribbon, twine and a button.

The Big Shot Plus offers you everything you love about the Big Shot — PLUS the versatility to use 8 1/2 x 11″ materials! You will LOVE the 9 inch opening! This machine has a sleek white and gray color scheme and the Sizzix logo embossed on the handle. The Big Shot Plus Die-cutting Machine offers plenty of stylish appeal with the same versatility of working with the all the Sizzix products (with the exception of Bigz Pro dies) including their smallest Embosslits to their new 9″ wide plastic-backed dies (coming soon). It also goes along well with the Sizzix embossing tools. Just like the standard sized Big Shot, this portable roller machine cuts and embosses many different materials.

Sizzix Fold-A-Long Cards

April 30th, 2015

Cards that have different shapes or folds are so fun but they are much nicer to make when there is a die that can cut them for you instead of you needing to measure and score and cut and figure it all out yourself.  Simpler is so much nicer and much less stressful.

P1150043

This week I’m using Sizzix’s Fold-A-Long Thinlits dies to make my cards.   This set comes with six dies that cut the card base, the decorative inside element and three tag pieces.  In the card above I used Graphic 45‘s Artisan Style collection with the dies.  I fussy cut the peacock from the paper to make my plain yellow envelope pop a little and give a sneak peek of what the card will be.  The die cut card accordion folds on both sides to meet in the middle.  I again fussy cut the flowers and dragon fly from the paper collection, ran them through my Xyron sticker maker, placed them on black cardstock and recut them leaving a small border around them.  The flowers and dragonfly intertwine to hold the card closed.

P1150033

Here’s a view for you from the top showing the decorative mats and the way it folds.  In order to get the mats I cut my decorative paper with the card base die in the set and then trimmed the pieces to fit.  In the video below I’ll show you how to use the die and how to cut and fold it and the mats to create the Fold-A-Long card.  The card starts with a 12″ x 6″ piece of cardstock for the base and folds to a standard A2 size.

P1150042

This card used an older Graphic 45 collection, Curtain Call, any collections that you have on hand that has several 12×12″ sheets will do you for these cards with matching envelopes.  I found it much easier to place the card die and paper I’m wanting to cut on my Sizzix Magnetic Platform.  It holds everything in place snugly to prevent a shift as you cut.  Since this die is placed on the fold of your paper to create the card it’s great to have that extra help.  I used the Angel Craft tapes and podge to adhere my papers together.  I love using the Podge as a glue since it dries quickly and leaves no wrinkles or puckers in your papers.  One thing I did have to do with some of the papers before folding or scoring was to lightly spritz them with water. Since the decorative papers I used tended to be on the heavier side I didn’t want to take a chance on the paper splitting as I folded or scored it, the water just helps expand the fibers a tad and helps prevents those awful cracks.

Here’s a sneak peak of the other examples you’ll see on the video.  I sure hope you’ll try this die set and make some Fold-A-Long cards for yourself.

A list of the supplies I used from the store, with links, will be directly below the video.

If you have a moment I’d love for you to visit my personal blog or Facebook page.  You can find me at A Soul’s Heartbeat.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
