Tag with Wacky Transport by Tim Holtz

I'd like to show you the tag I just finished, which I made for myself and not for anyone else. On Tuesday this week, after 15 years, I parted with my old car, a Toyota Yaris. I loved it dearly, which is why it had been with me for so long. The new car that replaced it was a green Mini Cooper. The new car is greeted by this tag, which I will use as a bookmark.


I cut out a tag from 300gsm watercolour paper and painted the bottom part with Pumice Stone Distress paint and the top with Winter Blue DecoArt Americana paint. 


The houses were cut out from the same watercolour paper I used for the tag. I cut out the roof from grey paper. I inked the edges of the houses with Hickory Smoke Distress ink and the edges of the tag with Hickory Smoke Archival ink.


The car is also cut out from the same watercolour paper as the tag. And I coloured with a mixture of green acrylic paints.

I cut out the "mini" word from black cardstock and the heart from red. 

I always glue a plain paper on the back of my tags, and since I usually chose darker paper, I colour the edges the same colour as the paper I use for this. This time I used grey paper and grey marker for the colouring.


What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, Wacky Transport by Tim Holtz (665220)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Cityscape Suburbia by Tim Holtz (661811)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Alphanumeric Classic Lower by Tim Holtz (664224)

Sizzix Thinlits die, Falling Hearts by Tim Holtz (664415)

Idea-Ology Sticker Book, Small Talk (TH93193)

etc.


Here is a photo of my new car:


And on the tag :-)

With my tag, I would like to join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Transport it!

Birthday card with Ice Flake by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone, I'm here with the second project that I made for our January challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is A Year To Sparkle And Shine. For my second project I chose the same background as for the first, a birthday card with Cozy Winter bear


My first project, my first card was made for my sister but this one was made for my daughter, Eszter who is turning 16! Another January birthday girl :-)

And now on to the preparation.

For the background I took a 300 gsm paper, the Sparkles&Christmas stamp set and a silver embossing powder and heat embossed a sparkle background.


Then I blended Tumbled Glass ink onto the whole surface and Faded Jeans to the edges. 


I cut out the Ice Flake from white paper, then from silver glitter paper. I cut out the big snowflake from blue glitter paper and the mini snowflake from silver glitter paper. I placed them on top of each other and glued them together but I put the glue just in the middle. In the end I glued a half pearl too in the middle.


The text was stamped on black cardstock with super fine white embossing powder. Don't forget to use the antistatic pouch!

Birthday card with Cozy Winter bear by Tim Holtz

Hello everyone and happy new year! And since it's not just new year but the first day of January a new challenge begins on the Country View Challenges blog. Your hostess will be the lovely Jo and the theme is A Year To Sparkle

For this challenge I made a birthday card for my sister's birthday who turns 45 on 11 January. To meet the expectations of the challenge, I used the Sparkle background stamp by Tim Holtz and glitter paper for the number.


And here is the tutorial.

I took a piece of watercolour paper (300gsm) and stamped on the Sparkle background with embossing ink. Then I heat embossed with silver embossing powder.


I cut around the pattern and then I inked the whole surface with Tumbled Glass ink.


I inked the edges with Pumice Stone, later I added Frayed Burlap too. I also inked the edges of the bear with Frayed Burlap ink.


The number was cut out from glitter paper with Deco Bigz XL die but I inked the edges of the number with an alcohol marker (Copic Sketch Fig).

The bird was hand painted with Distress paints but the eye was made with white gel marker. 


The text was stamped on black cardstock, using first an antistatic pouch, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
