Our Creative Corner: Your Favorite Tim Holtz Technique

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. Here in Miami it is pretty hot, but with stormy weather ahead, it looks like the temperature is going to drop a little bit.

It's been a while since the last time I participated in Our Creative Corner Challenge. This week the challenge is about our favorite Tim Holtz technique. It is a tough decision because I like them all, but to narrow down my selection I have to say that after participating in Creative Chemistry class I love the Custom Stamp Pad Technique. I think that it is so creative and at the same time original. I fell in love with this technique!

For this technique you are going to need Cut-N-Dry stamp pad felt, any stamp (I used the butterfly stamp) but preferably not a solid one, distress reinkers in different colors, archival permanent black ink and white or vanilla cardstock.

First, stamp the image on the Cut-N-Dry stamp pad felt on the fabric side with archival permanent black ink. Then with the reinkers in different colors fill in the image. That is going to work like your ink pad. Wet your stamp on your ink pad and stamp on a cardstock, and your image will be with multiple colors, as many as you put on your ink pad. This is a fun and innovative technique. Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Hello Lili
    Well am I pleased that you have returned to play with us again, as I for one would love to see more of your work, this technique, is brilliant, and your butterfly's are very beautiful.
    The design with your side-on sentiment, and clip add a different feel and interest, along with your button and twine.
    The balance is good with excellent composition.
    Thank you so very much for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner.

  2. Such a stunning card! Love the beautiful background and the gourgeous butterflies. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.... :)

  3. Lili, Your card is just so beautiful! I have to go buy some of that felt now to try. I signed up for the Creative Chemistry classes with Tim and enjoyed them immensely.
