Hello, Crafty Friends, and happy Tuesday to you all! Today I am excited to share another one of my makes for the Tim Holtz Sizzix 2021 Chapter 1 Release, shared recently on YouTube Live. This is the beautiful new Bloom Colorize die set along with the new Alphanumeric Bold set, on a 5×7 desk frame.
I am a huge fan of Tim’s Colorize die sets, and was super happy to see florals now included in the line. This set includes a gorgeous stylized flower that reminds me of a rose or a camelia, as well as a branch of buds, berries, and greenery, too. One of my favorite things about this set is that the pieces look great in just about any color, so you’re not roped into a limited color palette or design.
I die cut my botanical pieces mostly from Kraft Stock cardstock, but did mix in layers that were inked with Distress Oxide. I really like the visual textures you get from mixing different mediums, and that’s a great way to add a bit of dimension to an otherwise relatively flat design.
I almost always remove the glass when I alter a frame, and that’s what I did this time, as well as removing the top of the frame in this case, too. For this project, I stamped and inked a watercolor cardstock background and layered it onto a green cardstock base. The base was then adhered to the back of a cheap thrift-store 5×7 desk frame, and topped with an Idea-ology frame that was painted and inked. I love creating my own frames and decor from my favorite Idea-ology pieces for a truly unique project design.
