Simon Says Stamp & Show a Tim Holtz Technique!

Just in case you don't know, Tim Holtz is an amazing designer for Ranger, Sizzix, and Stampers Anonymous. Over the years, he has created tons of fabulous images and products that I hope most of you have gotten to use!

On that note...want a chance to win $50.00 to Simon Says Stamp? Enter the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge!!!
This week's Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge theme is to Show a Tim Holtz Technique! If you need ideas, you can search our blog because a lot of them have been featured, but you can also find techniques on Ranger's blog and Tim's blog. : )

I am proud, once again, to show you what our wonderful Simon Says Stamp & Show Design Team has created:

Lynne used some Lavish Trimmings and a Word Stick to embellish this beauty! She dried everything with her Heat Tool and got some ideas from the Compendium of Curiosities book by Tim Holtz!

Candy used the Paper Rosettes die for the fan and she colored this with color washes!

Nancy used Graphic 45 Boardwalk papers for the image! She also used the Elegant Flourishes die and then inked the flourishes with Distress Stains!

Sarah used the following Idea-ology pieces: Foliage, a chain, and possibly Chain Tassels too! Like those flowers? Try the Tattered Florals die!

Happy Crafting!!

  1. a single tim holtz technique? really? maybe all of them! I am not so much into the altered look but those inks and inking techniques - oh my!

  2. I don't think I can pick a single favorite, but if I could it would probably be one of the alcohol ink techniques. Those inks are awesome! =)

  3. This card is stunning, beautiful papers and paper piecing, beautiful design is included in your cards, really it is very inspiration work. This image is very cute.

  4. I love anything T!M Holtz.
    He is the Best Distresser!

  5. I love all of Tim Holtz's techniques!!!! I can't pick just one I just wish I could do some of what he does. :) Thanks for the chance!

  6. Wow you ask some tricky questions! Can't really choose, but I guess the inking techniques. x

  7. When he did hid 12 tags of Christmas, he embossed some clear plastic and used it. I've always thought of doing something like it but wasn't sure and then he did it.

  8. My favorite Tim Holtz technique is the basic inking with the disressing tool :D It gives the perfect touch for cards!

  9. I love so many of Tim Holtz' techniques, I do not know if I can pick just one! I love his distressing. He has gotten me started on inking all my edges, distressing the edges with his Tonic Edge Distresser, and even (this is real hard for me) crumpling paper. Wrinkling it, crushing it in the palm of my hand, and etc. I am a Type A personality (like clean, neat, organized work). I also like Kraft Resist. Great technique with wonderful results. Thanks.

  10. My fav is using alcohol inks and the splotched look with all the colors!

  11. I use the alcohol inks a lot to alter dominoes.
