Craft Your Passion Challenge Day and Tim Holtz photos

Today there is another challenge over at the Craft Your Passion Challenge blog. This week, we are having an open challenge, anything goes!  How easy is that?  Head over to the blog to read about the details of this challenge. While visiting the Craft Your Passion blog, check out the beautiful cards created by my fellow DT members. I would encourage you to participate in the challenge and show us your beautiful creation.

For my card, I used an apple image from Cocodingo Digital Stamps.  I decided to go with a school-theme for my card, since many children are preparing to return back to school.  I paper-pieced the apple, worm, and leaf.  I created a notebook page by using a Tim Holtz distress folder then punching holes in it and directly applying blue ink to it.  I used the Martha Stewart "abc123" border punch that I recently purchased for $5.99 on clearance.  To complete the card, I added real red ribbon and an apple sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers. 

Speaking of Tim Holtz, he was in Cincinnati, OH this weekend for the Stampaway USA stamp convention.  I have many of Tim Holtz's products, such as inks, embossing folders, dies, and grunge paper, and I love them!  It was so fun to be able to "see him in action."  Here are few pictures of took of him.

  9. How exciting that you got to meet Tim! I love his products too and the way you inked the high spots on the embossing looks wonderful. Love the paper piecing and border punch, great card and for such a good cause. I have cats too and they love getting in the middle of my crafting - that cuttlebug picture in the right sidebar looks awfully familiar! ;-)
