Hello friends! Today I’m working with the Tim Holtz Stacked dies I love the versatility of these dies. You can use them on cards, mixed media projects, assemblage pieces and more. The dies also fit the Vignette boxes from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line. In fact, Tim has an awesome video where he shares some tips for using his stacked dies. Check it out here:
You can see in our project today I’ve stacked the dies to create a window with a border around the focal point of our piece. Are you ready to dive in?

Adhere Paper Doll to the box centering her in the window. Add Funky Florals to the front of the box by peeling the adhesive and/or using foam tape as desired. Add a bow to the dress and flowers using thick thread or string.
Cut Rosette in half and adhere to the top of the box. Add some little floral over the Rosette. Adhere Adornment swag to center top of frame. Paint the Base with Gold Metallic Mixative using a brush. Apply a small amount of Blending Solution and gently wipe off raised areas on the base.
