Crafting with the 2013 Holiday Card Kit Inspired By Tim Holtz


Hi bloggers! Happy Saturday to you! I’m so pleased to have Richele Christensen back as a guest designer on our blog! I just loved seeing what she made with our 2013 Holiday Kit Inspired by Tim Holtz! I sure hope it inspires you too! We’re excited to be able to offer the kit with CLEAR or CLING stamps so you can pick your preference!



Hi bloggers, it’s Richele Christensen… I’m here with a few cards I made from the Tim Holtz inspired Card Kit! It’s amazing how much comes in this kit, Stamps, Ink, Cards, Cardstock, Ribbons, Rub Ons, Trinkets, a little sparkle and even more! So much to create with!


For our sleigh card apply Evergreen Bough and a little Iced Spruce Distress Ink directly to your craft sheet. Fill the Mini Mister with water and add 2 scoops of Perfect Pearls using the end of a popsicle stick. Spritz the ink until it makes ringlets. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper 3 5/8” x 3 5/8” and swipe through the ink. Dry with a heat tool. Repeat if desired. Stamp the sleigh image with Jet Black Archival Ink. Apply Snowflake Rubs. Mat with a light and darker turquoise cardstock. Sand all the edges and ink with Evergreen Bough using an Ink Blending Tool. Adhere together and Pop dot to the base card. The base card is darker turquoise cardstock cut to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2” scored and folded in half. Embellish the card with a big bow from Crinkle Ribbon, Mirrored Stars and Rubs for the message.

I love the look of the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls. It’s perfect for the season.


Our second card uses the Holly Stamp to create a Wreath. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper 3 1/2” x 5 1/5”. Stamp the Holly branch with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink in a circle to create a Wreath. Spray the Wreath with Perfect Pearls. Dry with a heat tool. Ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Color the Wreath with a Water brush and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Add the berries by applying dots of Glossy Accents and adding Red Distress Glitter. Shake off the excess and let dry. Mat with green cardstock. Adhere green behind Wreath piece. Using the Linen Ribbon tie a bow around the Wreath piece. Attach the Reindeer with a long Fastener to the center of the wreath. Cut red cardstock 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score and fold in half. Sand the edges and ink with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Adhere pieces together. Add the message that has been stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink. Ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Mat with green cardstock and pop dot to card.

What a great kit! I’ve made 2 cards today and I have lots of things left to create more!
