Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous CROCHET TRIMS Cards

Hello Lovelies! I have a soft spot in my heart for Spring releases. Of course Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous did not disappoint! Today we'll make a pair of sweet cards using two of the new sets and a new stencil.These Everyday cards are ones that you will always want in your stash to be ready for any reason and no reason. Sometimes, I think that "no reason" cards are some of the best!

We'll be doing a classic embossed resist on the Crochet Trims Stamp Set, splattering our Kraft Cardstock with Distress Oxide Spray and making a pristine white on white texture paste layer, so buckle up for lots of pics and simple tricks to make this easy pair.

Let's take a closer look at both of these stamp sets. You can purchase them individually or get the whole bundle from Simon Says Stamp. Also, if you don't want to fussy cut the Crochet Trims like I did, I highly recommend considering the matching dies sets!

RAINBOW CROCHET TRIMS CARDS - Rainbow Resist, Distress Oxide Splatter, Texture Paste Stenciling

Card Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"



Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Speckled Egg, Shaded Lilac, Kitsch Flamingo, Wild Honey, Cracked Pistachio




  • Trim two pieces of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4"

  • Position the Deco Floral Stencil as shown below and apply Opaque Texture Paste using a palette knife

  • Carefully shift the stencil to the right aligning and overlapping the stenciled pattern to the stencil openings

  • Apply more paste to complete the pattern on the right side of the paper. Do not press down too firmly so that you do not smudge the pattern too much

  • Repeat and set aside to dry

Very "pristine and precise" as you can see! :-)



  • Trim a piece of Kraft cardstock to 4 1/2" x 6"

  • Place inside a splat box, mist randomly with Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray

  • Remove nozzle from bottom and use the "straw" end to add large splotches of the Oxide to the Kraft cardstock

  • Set aside to dry



Step 1: Embossing

  • Secure a  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock inside your MISTI or preferred stamp positioning tool

  • Align the large crochet trims image over the paper, ink with Black Soot Distress Ink and stamp onto the cardstock. Heat set with a heat tool to dry it quickly and then dust with an anti-static tool

  • Leaving the stamp in place on the "lid" of the MISTI (or similar), clean the excess ink with a damp cloth

  • Ink the stamp with Distress Embossing Ink and stamp again directly over the original image

  • Remove the stamped cardstock from the MISTI and dust with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder

  • Heat set to melt the powder and reveal the raised black design


Step 2: Inking

  • Ink Mini Ink Blending Tools to apply Distress Ink in the following order:

    • Speckled Egg, Shaded Lilac, Kitsch Flamingo, Wild Honey, Cracked Pistachio



  • Use Tim Holtz Paper Snips to fussy-cut the Trims OR

  • Use Simon Says Stamp Crochet Trims Thick Set Wafer Dies to die-cut the Trims



  • Adhere the trims to the splatter Kraft panel with Bearly Precision Craft Glue.

  • Cut the panel in half to 2 3/4" x 4 1/2"

  • Use a Tim Holtz Deckle Edge Trimmer to create the uneven edges all around each Trims panel



  • Pop up the Deco Floral Texture Paste Panels with foam tape and adhere to a Lavender Card Base and a Sea Glass Card Base. NOTE: these card bases are created from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock

  • Stamp the sentiments in Black Soot Distress Ink. NOTE: Instead of "Just Because" as shown below, I doubled up the "XOXO" and "Love You"

  • Fussy-cut the sentiments with Paper Snips and adhere to the Trims Panel

  • Pop up the Trims panel with foam tape and adhere to Deco Floral Texture Paste Panel


The white on white Deco Floral Texture Paste Panel creates an almost embossed look, but even more interesting for its imperfections.


The Crochet Trims look lovely in black and a Distress Rainbow


All done and all pretty!
