Hello everyone! Looks like we’ve got a good start to the long weekend, it’s sunny and hot!  For those who feel like they need to escape the heat, and are spending time in their craft room, we have some card inspiration created by Jan for you today.
This card was created with the Poppystamp’s Leafy Frame die(POP1325) and Sizzix’s Tim Holtz Script Celebration Words dies(660223).  The paper used was from Blue Fern Studios and flowers from Petaloo and Prima.
Memorybox Blooming Flower Frame (MBX99447) and Tim Holtz Celebration Script Words die set was used on this card.  The flowers were made from Sizzix’s Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland (657824). The paper is from Blue Fern Studios.
A Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp called Evolution was used here, along with Pumice Stone Embossing Powder.  Gansai Watercolours were used on the background.  A strip of Tim Holtz Woodgrain paper was inked and added to the bottom with metal gears and the Handwritten Journey Thinlits die-cut word “moments”(660217).
Not only can the Sizzix Tim Holtz Calendar Script thinlits dies (661179) by used for your calendars, but they can make great backgrounds for your cards, layouts, or art journals.  These months were die-cut from the same paper used on the card and then adhered to the card front. If you want to highlight a certain month, just cut it out in a contrasting colour.  They almost look like they were put on with texture paste or embossed.  The die-cut Stitched Oval is from Tim Holtz (661188) and the Detailed Butterfly die (Sizzix 661182) is cut from vellum, with the center embossed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder.  The Flower is from Blue Fern Studios.
This beautiful paper collection “Courtship Lane” is from Blue Fern Studios.  The Doily is Sizzix’s Tim Holtz Doily#2 Thinlits Die(661498) and it was painted with Prima’s Art Alchemy Metallique and Opal Magic paints.  It was then sprayed with Ranger’s Wendy Vecchi Mica Spray in Cornflower Blue to give it some blue shimmer.  The little house is die-cut from Poppystamps Vincent House die (1509), the large flower is from Petaloo, the smaller ones are die-cut from Tim Holtz Tattered flower Garland die (657824).
