CHA Week- Celebrate Today with Tim Holtz

Hello! Happy Wednesday, Friends! I have a CHA project to share with you today. Another card made for Tim Holtz for the Sizzix Alterations booth using the same Mosaic Bigz Die I shared with you on Monday. But this time, I used the die in an entirely different way.

So on Monday’s project, you may remember how I used the negative, outside framework of the die to create a fun grid background for some silly Bird Crazy birds. And here I’ve used the inside pieces created by the die to make a different kind of pattern. As I mentioned before, these pieces perfectly fit the Idea-ology Fragments. So now you can die cut any number of surfaces and top them with matching acrylic blanks to create all sorts of fabulous collage and mixed-media projects. Or, you can use the pieces as is, and stamp, ink, or even emboss them, like I’ve done here. You gotta love that kind of versatility.

Here’s a close-up peek at those cool grid pieces. I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper, inked in a variety of soft yellow Distress inks. And then the blocks were embossed in one of Tim’s new Textured Impressions folders. This is the new Herringbone folder, part of the new Dapper release.

You may also spy some other new Tim Holtz goodies, along with a few old favorites, too. The spiral flowers are from the older Tiny Tattered Florals set, and the leaves are from Garden Greens. The beautiful metal frame is the new Idea-ology Baroque Frame. It’s been painted with Picket Fence Distress Paint and lightly buffed for an antique finish. I also used some of the beautiful Metallic silver cardstock in the background, along with the new Textile Surfaces in chambray blue. This adhesive-backed fabric paper has become an instant new favorite of mine.

Mixed in with all the new goodies here is one last new die set, the Stitched Ovals Thinlits. This set has a set of stacking hand-stitched oval shapes, along with two sizes of scalloped borders. I used the larger scallop to create this fun sort of positive/negative border across the bottom of the card. And the smallest oval was a perfect fit for the back of the frame.

So many fun new products! Do you have some new favorites on your wish list yet?

Oh, and by the way…. new AudOnes Prims are coming soon!
