With October 31st still a few months away, Tim Holtz has been working hard on new designs. The new Tim Holtz Halloween release has inspired me to craft, the only problem is his new line isn't quite in stock yet. I had to get creative and use some of my favorite dies that I already have. The Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and Crazy Cats are among the funniest designs in his entire portfolio, and when you combine them with the Crazy Things, you can really dress the dogs and cats up to match the occasion at hand.
The overall size of this card is 3" x 3". I used the Mini Crazy Cats & Dogs dies & stamps bundle to make the dog, and then I used the Crazy Things die and stamps bundle for the witch's hat and broom. The stamps work very well with these dies because they make it so easy to have all the fun details of the dog without having to draw them on.
New Tim Holtz Halloween
As I mentioned, the New Tim Holtz Halloween dies are now on sale and if you haven't had a chance to check them out, you definitely should take a minute to do so. I think this 2017 Halloween Sizzix release is amazing and it's selling like crazy! Here are a few of the cards and things from the show that will inspire you.
So my personal favorite is the Silly Monsters Thinlits die set. These 5 silly monsters are super cute and as the name implies, are more of a fun Halloween cut. You can see two of his cards featured above using this die. Our most popular die is the Witchcraft Thinlits die set you can see one of these cards on the far right, So super cute! I love the broom on this one and the cat. Another one that I should mention: the Mini Halloween Things Thinlits die set has a bunch of little Halloween themed dies, such as ghosts, cats, spiders, witches hat, skulls, and more! This set is perfect for making fun tags or adding that little something extra to your card or layout. There are quite a few more dies and some fabulous embossing folders that were released this year so be sure to check them all out here!
