This is Valerie’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight! It has been short but very sweet having you along with us! We would like to thank you for your fabulous creations, it has been such a pleasure :-)

Valerie made an A3 journal page. For the background she painted a layer of Gesso and textured using a swirl design stamp. The figures were made with a home-made stencil and a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen. I used home made acrylic paint sprays to colour the background, and diverse small stencils for the ‘confetti’. The lettering was done by hand.

Andrea made some lip balm party favors using products from My Favorite Things: the Tall Tag Duo, Lip Balm Window and Frame dies, Lip Balm Shaker Pouches and the Sending Smooches stamp set.

Anna-Karin needed a birthday card for a friend, and made one with a safari theme, using Darkroom Door African Trees stamps, as well as sweet sentiments by SSS.

Barbara created Christmas table placeholders using Tim Holtz Sizzix GIFT CARD PACKAGETim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash KRAFT CHRISTMAS Paperie,  Tim Holtz Sizzix Die BILLBOARD ALPHABET Bigz. 

Cathie created a card to ring in the new year and all the new adventures that await. Her background scene and focal images were created using the Tim Holtz Home for the Holidays die set. She also used a stamp and die set in a very unique way, the Tim Holtz Trick or Treat die set and the Tim Holtz Brushstrokes stamp set. Can you guess how she used them?

Emma created a gift box and tag to place on her Christmas Day table. She used Tim Holtz’s Sidekick to die cut all the decorative elements to decorate the cube shaped box which is made from Little Sizzles Mat Board and stamped with the Mini Swirly Snowflakes stamp.

Kath made Christmas Cracker Treat Boxes for the guests at her Christmas Day Lunch Party using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Winter Wonderland, Home For The Holidays, Snowglobe 2 Thinlits and Simon Says Stamp Moon & Star Border die

Lols made a Party Banner using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners Die Set and a Simon’s Exclusive Funky Snowflake Die 


Macarena made a champagne 40th birthday card using a very bright and shiny media like Mother of Pearl Nuvo Mousse for coloring the embossed with WeR Geometric folder background. She also used pearl MS Acrylic Paints in mother of pearl and jet stream shades.

Maura made some cute snowmen clothespins using Carta Bella Snow Fun papers, 28 Lilac Lane Attic Findings kit, and Kaisercraft Festive Wooden Shapes.

Meihsia created a mixed media art journal page to celebrate new year 2018 using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Wood Slices Findings and Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Party Hat Sketch to decorate the page.

Sandra made a birthday invitation to go party with her friends and she used lots of Infusions to add the color and the Ring Doily stencil with Texture Paste to create so interest.

Zoey used watercolors and Tim Holtz Stamps to create this gold ticket party invitation


So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
