How-to video: Autumn Blueprint

Hi crafters!

A surprise box arrived on my doorstep this Friday, containing the new Blueprint Collection by Tim Holtz. Thank you Tim and Mario! It was Christmas in August for me !!!

So I just had to use those stamps on today’s video. I fell in love with this collection the moment I saw it at CHA.  Are you ready for some Tim Holtz goodness? Here is an autumn tag/card for you!

All the distress inks used in the video are listed below. It’s a combination of my favorite colors for fall. And check out that acorn with “rock candy” on top. Looks real!


I also used inks on my cream seam binding to match the colors of the tag.

The video is packed with techniques Tim Holtz is using, so grab your coffee and have fun.

You can enjoy the video below or on my YouTube channel in HD

Supplies:

Thank you all for visiting and for the  lovely comments you always take the time to write! They make me want to do even more videos… so stay tuned this week for another bonus video 😉

Hope you had fun!

    I’m not a big fan of those stamps I must say, but I love the leaves you made and fun to use washi tape like that. And I am a big fan of distress inks, so always love to see what beautiful backgrounds you can make with that. Thanks for the video. Can’t wait for the bonus one!

  36. OMG, has Tim H. seen this? He would LOVE it, and would love how you get your fingers messy with his Rock Candy stickles! 😉 Wonderful tag and card….you continue to show us techniques that we may be unsure of/fearful to try out on our own. Thanks so much!!!
