Tim Holtz Stag Luminaire

Hello Everyone. Yes your eyes don't deceive you!!
I am desperately trying to get back to posting more regularly!!
I have the new Tim Holtz luminary die and decided to use it and play along at My Craft Spot .
There was a Pinterest photo for inspiration.
I took the earthy elements. My papers were based on the brown leaf in the foreground and touches of red and green to represent the foliage. My white stag picks out the white detail. I know the picture represents fall but I thought the winter tree with the stag worked perfectly too.
I wanted to show the star on top of the rosette tree.
I embossed the acetate that I added to each window.
The luminary is fiddly to put together but worth it!
I added washi tape for splashes of colour and a poinsettia die for the flower.
The pictures really don't do this justice.
Pickwell Farm Craft shop asked me to make shop samples with this die.
I will post the Christmas and Halloween luminaires with instructions at the weekend.
Thanks for looking.

  2. Wow Jayne, this is so neat and beautiful!!! I bet it will look great lit up! Glad that you are trying to get back in the swing of getting crafty! Hugs!

  3. Jayne ~ Oh my word you are too creative sweet friend! WOW! LVOE this whole entire project... from the idea, the paper, the little details and that you have that die! EEK! Awesome work as always!!

  4. Beautiful project. I got this die to use with some kids in a craft club and it will be too "fiddly" for them. I am so bummed! It's challenging for myself, even, and I enjoy "fiddly!" Do you have any tips?

    1. I have made 4 of them and it has got easier each time. I will post my shop samples at the weekend and add a couple of photos of what I found helped a little!

    2. Thank you, I did make 3 and I agree, it did get a bit easier, but the kids would have only made one. I'm not going to do it with them.
      Thank you for posting pics! Off to look.
