Hello, crafty friends! It’s the most wonderful time of the year… time for holiday festivity and fun with the release of the new 2021 Tim Holtz Sizzix Christmas/winter collection! I hope you all had a chance to catch the LIVE reveal on Tim’s YouTube channel this past Saturday. If not, never fear… you can always watch the replay at timholtz.com. You won’t want to miss all the amazingly inspiring project makes!
I was so very fortunate to get to create projects for the Live reveal, and today I’m excited to share the first of them here with you. This is the adorable new Cozy Winter set and the equally fabulous new Tall Pines paired together on a snowy winter holiday shaker card.
The background and framework for this shaker card were crafted from Distress Watercolor cardstock that was inked and splattered to create a snowy scene. I used a combination of Mermaid Lagoon and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Spray on the background “sky”, which of course was splashed with water droplets followed by flicks of Picket Fence Distress Paint. The pine trees were die cut once from Kraft Stock cardstock and once from Watercolor cardstock, and inlaid together to give the look of a snowy forest. More dots of paint add a touch of snow to the tree branches.
The bear was also die cut from Distress Watercolor cardstock that was inked in a variety of pink, brown, and black Distress inks. And because I love fabric as much as I love paper, I decided to die cut the scarf and cups from felt to add a touch of fuzzy warmth to the design.
Do you have a favorite from the new release? To me it’s hard to choose just one!
