Happy New Year! Over at Studio L3, Linda is hosting the finale for the Compendium of Curiosities Vol II Challenges and what a finale it is! We all get the opportunity to wish Happy Birthday to Tim Holtz whose birthday is January 7th. The challenge is to create a birthday wish for Tim using any technique from Volume I or Volume II of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities books.
I made a pop-up birthday card using the Sizzix Pop 'N Cuts system created by Karen Burniston. The techniques included are basic Distress Ink blending, Distress Markers on page 50 of Volume II and Perfect Pearls Mist on page 54 of Volume II.
I want to wish Tim a birthday full of memories that include family, friends, love and laughter--all things that everyone should enjoy on their special day!
For the base card, I used Karen's Sizzix Bigz XL Pop 'N Cuts Horizontal A2 w/Circle Label die. Other dies used were Karen's Sizzix Sizzlits Love die set, Flagpole w/ Lantern & Sign Decorative Strip, and her Sizzlits Celebrate die set. The paper is taken from Tim's Lost and Found paper stash. The stamp sets used were Tim's Good Thoughts, Words for Thought and Winged Things II. Also used was Ranger black archival ink, Tim's distress markers, distress inks in Aged Mahogany and Brushed Corduroy, Perfect Pearls Mist in Sunflower Sparkle, Idea-ology Chit Chat stickers and a journal ticket. The birthday hat is from Artchix Studio.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog! I appreciate it. Have a great day!
