Day 1 Giveaway: Tim Holtz Treasures

Here's a rundown of everything you'll get:

Tim Holtz Stamp Platform

This just so happens to be one of the hottest tools of the year! (I mean, of course we'll have it for Black Friday, but act fast before we run out). Just in case you aren't familiar, the Stamp Platform makes the life of a stamper easy. Have you ever stamped an image and despite making sure you inked it up well enough and making sure that you applied plenty of pressure all over your stamping block, you end up with a less than perfect image? Well, that problem is eliminated with this tool! You'll make perfect contact with your paper every time. Bonus: It works with both clear and rubber stamps!

We figured if you're getting the Stamp Platform, then we should probably also throw in the Stamp Platform Zipper Sleeve. This light weight neoprene fabric storage case has a stylish monochrome design and Tim Holtz' signature :)

If you're going to be doing all of that stamping then you'll probably want to stock up on Distress Oxide Ink Pads! We've thrown 6 popular colors into this giveaway to get you started. If there was ever an ink pad to get a lot of hype, it would be this one! The combo of pigment and water-reactive dye give Distress Oxides an advantage over other ink pads and allows you to create multiple projects using a variety of techniques. Not only does the sprinkle of water leave beautiful water drops on the page, but the blend of pigment and water-reactive dye also allow for smooth blending among colors. Distress Oxides allow for layering that will enable you to add colors without it turning into a brown glob (thank goodness). Also, stamping will give you crisp presses!

Finally, if you're going to be playing with your new Distress Oxide Ink Pads, then you'll probably need a Blending Tool. These are a staple for any stamper's craft room and sell like hot cakes. Use them to apply Distress Inks, pigment inks, Nuvo Mousse, alcohol inks, and more to create beautiful backgrounds for your cards. The wooden handle is easy to grip and the 1-inch blending foams attach and detach easily. You get two tools and four blending foams in the kit, plenty to get you on the way to more dramatic backgrounds and scrapbook pages.

**this is only a small sampling of what will be discounted deeply for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals at Blitsy. Some other Tim Holtz treasures to keep an eye on are: Distress Crayons (did you get the new Metallics yet?), Mini Distress Ink Storage Tin, Stamps, Guillotine Trimmer....basically, if it says Tim Holtz on it you'll want to look for it at Blitsy on Black Friday!

Day 2 Giveaway - Watercolor Wonders

If you haven't already, you will fall in love with Prima's Watercolor Confection Watercolors! These Watercolor Pans are artist grade, high quality and highly pigmented. They come in a sturdy tin, which is perfect for taking on the go! It has a tri-fold open allowing you to use one of the sides as a built in palette. The Odyssey set has gorgeous earth-tone colors in this rich palette, you will want to mix, blend and create works of art! Make sure you check out all of the other Watercolor Confections colors, too (hint: pastels, metallics, classics, and more). You may just want to add them to your Black Friday Wish List.

Since you'll be getting the Watercolor Confections, you'll probably want some Watercolor Brushes! We've thrown 6 brushes into the giveaway for you, all of different sizes. The brushes are made with 80% Kolinsky Sable Hair and 20% synthetic blend held in rust-proof metal. The wooden handle is painted in pretty colors for easy distinction among other brushes and is labeled with its number and the Prima logo. This brush works wonderfully with Prima Watercolor Confections and watercolor pencils as it has a strong point and great color holding capacity.

You'll want to store your brushes, watercolor pencils, pens, and so much more in the sparkly, compact storage case from Prima with its pink, glittery cover. It's perfect for holding and storing your tools safely and taking them on the go with you. I'm in love with the black and white striped inside of this storage bag :)

You'll be all ready to go with your new watercolors and brushes, so we thought you might want to try out some new techniques with the Christine Adolph Watercolor Resist Pen. It's really fun to use: just draw or write with the pen, allow time for the fluid to dry. Once dried, add your watercolor, then just peel or rub off the resist to reveal the white lines!

9x12 Watercolor Pad

What would all of this great watercolor stuff be without some proper paper? This isn't available at Blitsy YET, but it will be on Black Friday! I wish I could tell you how INEXPENSIVE this pad will be on Black Friday, but you'll have to wait! This 9x12 Cold Press Pad is 140 lb, Medium Weight, Acid Free, and perfect for practicing your watercolor techniques!


Let me know in the group what you think of this giveaway!

Think of all the fun signs you can create: first day of school, pregnancy announcement, favorite motivational quotes, the possibilities are endless!

Day 12 Giveaway : Bursting with Color

We LOVE Color Burst here at Blitsy - and our artist/designer friend, Ken Oliver! Plus, this was one of the most requested items in our Blitsy Insiders Facebook Group, so we thought it was only fair to turn it into a giveaway!

You don't need to be a watercolor expert to use Color Burst Powders. If you aren't familiar, these are concentrated microfine watercolor powders that can be used for backgrounds, card making, mixed media projects, and more. Best of all, this powdered color gives you the freedom to experiment with techniques! The powders can be sprinkled onto a dry sheet of paper (or even used with stencils) and then spritzed with water. Try adding powder to a damp sheet of paper for a different look or even mix colors in a spray bottle filled with water to create custom effects. You'll have so much fun playing with Color Burst.

Liquid Metals

If you Love Color Burst (or soon to love Color Burst) you'll want to add metallic luster for a cool look!

Liquid Metals is a finely granulated metallic powder along with a colorant in a dispersing liquid in a handy dropper bottle. Spritz your paper with water, tap on Color Burst, and then add drops of the Liquid Metals on top (swirl a bit - if you like) to create a beautiful metallic overlay. Enjoy incorporating Liquid Metals into all your Color Burst techniques, and don't be afraid to experiment!

Mineral Burst

Another great medium to add to your Color Burst creations is Mineral Burst! You can create a shimmered look by brushing this onto your chosen surface, splatter it to bring the galaxy

closer to earth, or add it to other mediums to make them glimmer. Mix it up by adding Color Burst!

Best Ever Craft Mat

Don't forget the Craft Mat! This isn't just any craft mat, it's the Best Ever Craft Mat. I have like 10 of these, no joke. I really love it! Check out this video I did awhile back showing just why it is the best ever... Oh, and there's also a large version now. Score!
