Mixed Media Dies 2 Ways!!

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Welcome back, crafty peeps!!  Laurie here to share two cards using dies from the Tim Holtz Mixed Media Set #5.  If you’ve never seen or used these, I highly recommend you check them out!  Each set has 3 large, amazing dies and the price point is awesome!!

My first card features some lazy watercolouring which will be hidden behind a panel cut with one of the floral dies in this set.

I cut the image out of white cardstock and inked the edges with Wild Honey and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  For the watercolouring, I used Bristol Smooth paper and a cheap set of watercolour paints.  I’m sure there was an easier way to do this but I just kept putting the die cut panel over the Bristol and roughly lined up where the ink should go!!

I think that this panel looks pretty cool on its own!!  But layered up together, it looks like this:

Before adhering the two panels together, I added some splatters with the Vintage Photo as well as Ground Espresso Distress Inks.

I added some twine to the left side and stamped the sentiment in Vintage Photo. I used my Misti for this as Distress Ink doesn’t stamp well and I need multiple impressions.  The sentiment comes from the Penny Black Choose Happy Stamp Set.

For the second card, I used another one of the dies from this set and used it to emboss!  You can do this with all your dies as long as you have a tan embossing mat and the correct sandwich for your die cutting machine!

This gives a very pretty result. To bring out the embossing a bit more, I lightly blended some Tattered Rose Distress Ink over top. I should mention, that I had that stitched rectangle in my “spares” bin so that was cut already.  You would want to make sure you cut down your panel BEFORE embossing it!

I adhered the embossed panel onto a piece of black cardstock that was slightly larger.  The “thank you” sentiment and heart come from the From the Heart Stamp Set from MFT…this is a great set to have in your stash!!

As an added touch, I used a couple dies from the Spring Floral Cluster Dies from Flora and Fauna and some shimmer pen on some of the raised portions!

And those are my projects for today!! Hope you found a little inspiration here today!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you soon…

Funky Foliage Treat Box

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

Ok, how adorable are these dies from the Tim Holtz Funky Foliage Die set??? I mean those mushrooms and acorns are just too cute for words even!!

I started with a Trinket Treat Box I made using Eileen Hull’s Trinket Box Die and designer papers from Recollections. I then die cut the Funky Foilage from Bazzil Cardstock in several fall colors that had Stick It Adhesive Sheets added on the back. The Stick It is great if you apply it to the back of your cardstock before running it thru your die cutting machine…this makes putting the foilage pieces together so much easier as there’s now adhesive on the back of all your die pieces. :o)

I used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide to ink the edges of the Foliage and treat box.

And what’s a treat box without some treats??? hehehehe

I sure hope you enjoyed my little funky foliage treat box today.

Happy Craftin’!

Trick or Treat

Saturday, October 6th, 2018

Hello all! Kia here with you today. I would first like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

I decided to do a Halloween card to share with you today. I have used stamps and dies from two different companies, one being Concord & 9th, the other My Favorite Things. It was just too hard to resist putting these together, it is like they were made for one another. As I had a lot that I wanted to fit on my card, I decided to make a tall 3.75 x 8.5 card.

I started first with the night sky by first masking off where I wanted the moon to be. I then sponged on my inks, working with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and starting with Shaded Lilac, moving on to Blueprint Sketch and finishing around the edges with Wilted Violet. I then removed the moon mask, and applied the sky mask to protect the sky while I did the moon. Again using Distress Oxide Inks, I started with Antique Linen and finished with Wild Honey. Once finished, I removed the masks and ran the hose from my Mini Mister along some areas on the moon, then sprinkled the entire area with water droplets.

I stamped all the images from both sets using Memento Ink in Jet Black, and die cut using my Gemini, then coloured with Chameleon Markers. For the grass areas I sponged on distress oxide in Peeled Paint. I attached a row of the trees and the houses using foam squares and glue, and used foam squares for the critters. I added Wink of Stella to the cape on the fox, and really wished I had room for the extra pumpkin and candies, but I will use them inside instead.

I hope you have enjoyed this Halloween card. I have listed the products below, which can all be found in the Scrap’n Stamp Store.

Thanks so much for visiting Scrap’n Stamp today.
