Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Challenge

Take one well loved and used Tattered Florals die.........

And a bit of die cutting, inking, light distressing and layering later!

I just had to join in this wonderful challenge.  It is testament to why the Tattered Florals die is such a hit with us all.  So many beautiful ways to use it.  So many gorgeous flowers to be fashioned.  Hope you like my Chrysanthemum made from many layers of the daisy die (tutorial coming soon to a blog near you!).  It is a labour of love but I think it is worth it.  I used Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, Tattered Leaves and Vintage Lace dies, some Cream card stock and a sheet of Graphic 45 Little Darlings paper to turn my Chrysanths in to a pretty card and a cute trinket box.  I have one Chrysanthemum left and I was wondering if I could spray it with some form of varnish to make it more durable and perhaps turn it into a broach or corsage style this space!

If you want to see more fabulous ways to use the Tattered Florals Die follow this link to the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Challenge.


  1. Gorgeous flower! I can see that I need to play a lot more with my die now that I finally bought it.

  2. Gorgeous card and box, clever use of the die, I love your results! Well done!!!Gay x

  3. Sooo beautiful Helen!! What a joy it must be to have access to toys like die cutting machines. I won't be able to have a go, but I look forward to the video at a blog near me, hehe. I love the colours you put together, I think it's quite Eastery (made up word. no? Really? Haha) Have a great evening Helen :0) Mo x
