Queen of Hearts
Tim Holtz – 12 Tags 2013

This is my entry in the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 Challenge:

How I Created This Project:

The Tag: The tag itself is made from corrugated cardboard. Both sides were painted with Decoart Red and Silver Metallic Acrylic Paint. The edges were then inked with TH Black Soot Distress Ink.

Queen of Hearts: I took one card from a playing deck and inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. I then covered a piece of heavy weight card stock with masking tape and embossed it using the TH Poker Face Embossing Folder. After trimming the the embossed pieced, it was covered with red acrylic paint which was wiped off with a paper towel. After the red paint was dried, a coat of black acrylic paint was applied and then wiped down and allowed to dry.

Bottom Border. I cut a piece of card stock 2 3/4 inches by four inches and embossed it using the TH Love Set #2 embossing folder. I cut off a one inch strip and placed it aside. The remaining 1 3/4 inch strip was inked with TH Festive Berries and Black Soot DI.

I cut a 3/4 inch strip of G45 Core Impressions Timeless collection and sanded it down. To this I attached a piece of twine secured by two brads.

Single Heart: This is a chipboard die cut heart. The frame was coated with Versamark and embossed with silver powder. I embosed the heart, sanded it lightly to get the grainy texture.

It was nice being able to create my own faux metal embellishments. I am also getting a big kick out of seeing what I can do with corrugated cardboard!

Thanks for stopping by!

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
