Snowmen 3 Ways | Sizzix & Tim Holtz

Happy World Cardmaking Day! I’m so excited that Scrapbook.com sent over some products from the newest Tim Hotlz release and I’m super excited to share my cards with you!

When I took a look at the Twig & Stump die set, I was really confused because there were so many pieces — so much so that I thought I got a manufacturer error with extra projects but nope! The cool thing about this die set is that it contains enough dies for you to create FIVE different snowmen!

I set out to do a bunch of die cutting and I started to put my pieces together to form my snowmen. Once I glued down the pieces that I could put together, I set out to create my three cards.

PROJECT #1

Features Sizzix/Tim Holtz’s Twig & Stump along with Scrapbookcom’s Peppermint Paper Pad

For my first card, I really used as many of the dies I put together as I could. For the background, I ink blended the pink cardstock from the Scrapbookcom’s Peppermint paper pad, with Dusty Concord Distress ink and splattered it with Perfect Pearls. For an added touch, I added Diamond Stickles on all the ornaments that went on the tree.

PROJECT #2

Features Sizzix/Tim Holtz’s Twig & Stump along with Scrapbookcom’s Peppermint Paper Pad, Peppermint Winter Stencil

This second card features a third snowman (Stump from the Twig and Stump die set) and he’ll be holding the Winter Wishes sentiment, while standing on a bunch of gifts in the snow. I think it’s super cute and I love how you can use the twig arms for so many different positions. For the background, I used another piece of cardstock from the Peppermint Paper Pad and ink blended around the edges (with Chipped Sapphire & Black Soot) as well as adding white pigment ink at the bottom for a “snow” effect. I decided to trim it down to a square and pop it up on pink cardstock, which I ink blended the Peppermint Winter Stencil to do some tone on tone ink blending.

PROJECT #3

Features Sizzix/Tim Holtz’s Twig & Stump and Pine Branches embossing folder along with Scrapbookcom’s Peppermint Paper Pad

My last card features the last two snowmen from the Twig & Stump die set, which works perfectly because they are looking at each other! First, I went ahead and pulled a piece of cardstock from the Scrapbookcom’s Peppermint Paper pad and used it with Pine Branches embossing folder. I added white pigment ink with my fingers right on top of the raised edges so it gives a snowy look to the branches – funny enough, it almost looks like a dark green (to me)! I set up the snowmen and added little sentiments to them from the Scrapbookcom’s Wordfetti Fa La La stamp set, which is super versatile for so many holiday sentiments. I thought it would be funny to create a fun conversation between the two snowmen.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all the cards I created using the die set — Once you die cut everything out, you’ll have five snowmen ready to go and you can use it for a variety of cards! Remember to stop by Scrapbook.com to check out the newest items from Tim Hotlz.
