Tim Holtz Snowflake Hobby Art snowflake and sentiment


Hi Everyone sorry I have been quiet . I have had a stinking cold , Oh nothing major but you know what it’s like when you feel poorly everything seems to take twice as long. here is a card I made using the Tim Holtz Snowflake  …..

You will need Tim Holtz cutting/embossing die

White card cut to size for die cut.  And circle of card for painting onto   I used a 5 1/2 inch circle. And another circle cut a little larger to mat and layer it onto

Any blue Brusho powder paints

Small mister bottle with a little water

Hobby Art snowflake stamp

Sentiment stamp

Versamark inkpad

White embossing powder

Heat gun.

Blue distress inkpad and an Antique Linen inkpad


The Tim Holtz snowflake can be bought from Hobby Art it has an embossing folder with it so …first I cut the snowflake out with the Big Shot. then put a little ink in the embossing folder lay the now cut snowflake in the folder and emboss ….when you take it out you will have a image tinged with blue and linen ….nice put to one side and leave to dry.  Do this again as you will need two snowflakes.  Next take the Circle gently sprinkle over with brushos  (Rich coloured powdered paint ) and lightly spritz water over the powder the colour will explode in front of your eyes…..now you can leave this to dry naturally or you can turn the circle this way and that to chase the paint round the circle or you can dry with a heat gun but don’t dry or heat to close to  the card, now its damp it scorches easily. so you have a round piece of card and a drying snowflake the round card should be dry before you stamp in versafine your Hobby Art snowflake….just stamp them randomly not too many…. then shake white embossing powder and gently heat with heat gun stamp out your sentiment on another piece of white card.  ( I find this is a good way to use the scraps of card I have left over from other projects )  Mat and layer the sentiment and  attach the now dry Snowflake to the middle of the circle ….and cut the other  snowflake in half  and attach to the underneath of the now matted and layered image then glue to cardstock of your choice ……I hope you like it. xxx
