Ann enjoys sending warm winter wishes in handmade cards. She has used the SSS Tiny Words Christmas stamp, distress oxidesmetallic craft stock, and most importantly, the Tim Holtz Wise Men die to create her holiday cards. On her blog, Ann shares how it all started as a white on white card and evolved.

Andrea is warmed on cold snowy winter days by thoughts of home and happy times.  She made this journal page using two new stamp sets by Inky Antics: Tiny Houses and Big Houses.  The journal she used is a Dylusions Creative Dyary.

Anna-Karin thought of shades of gold in relation to warm winter wishes and created a vintage Christmas scene in an altered tin. She used Tim Holtz Salvaged Santa, Small Woodland Tree and Decorative Deer.

Barbara is in a festive Christmas mood! She created a tag with warm colors using Tim Holtz Merry Moose die, Tim Holtz Festive Overlay stamp set combined with Ranger  Vintage foil.

Emma created an etcetera tag with the message of wishing everyone joy and peace at Christmas. She layered a glittered die cut heart using the Heartfelt Die together with Angelic Adornments over the top of the gorgeous Ice Flake and an Christmas Ephemera piece.

Kath created a page in her Dina Wakley Media Journal recalling fond childhood memories of returning home to cosy up at a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate and warm buttered toast after fun winter days playing in the snow. She used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flurry 2 Thinlits, Holiday Knit Layering Stencil, Idea-ology Christmas Paper Stash, Christmas Paper Dolls, Quote Chips and Design Tape to decorate her winter page

Macarena has made a set of Xmas cards in a deep brown shades using Tim Holtz Sizzix Lumber 3D Texture Fade Embossing Folder, Simon Says Stamp Mod Trees Background stamp and Tim Holtz Sizzix Winter Wonderland die.

Maura  was inspired by warm colors of alcohol inks to make some Christmas cards using Tim Holtz’s Lift Ink and the Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Holiday set.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media wall decor for Christmas using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Christmas Quote Chips and Quote Tokens to decorate the canvas.

Sandra made a wintery green Christmas card using Distress Inks Pine Needle, Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Hickory Smoke in the back and with the Tree Line stamp.

Zoey did a simple Christmas Card using a brayer , Tim Holtz Distress Paint – Peacock Feather , Simon Says Stamp Gold Embossing Powder and this amazing Simon Says Stamp Clear Stamp !

This week we are welcoming the lovely and super talented Ann Barnes aka Aksbarchitect into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat! Please hop on over to say ‘Hi’ and leave her a lovely comment.

Ann has created a blustery blizzard etcetera tag using distress oxide inks, die cut snowflakes from Tim Holtz flurry 2flurry 3, and paper snowflakes mini; and a vignette frame to set the scene. Brutus Monroe clear acrylic bubbles are scattered amidst the flurries.  

Andrea made two bright books using a boy-shaped stencil.  She added swirls and smudges of color with Brutus Monroe’s Aqua Pigments in Yellow and Blue Green.  The notebook, which Andrea cut in half, is a Prima Mixed Media Traveler’s Journal.

Anna-Karin made a space-themed wall-hanger for her boys, turning the Brutus Monroe Monster Party characters into aliens. She also used Brutus Monroe Milky Way embossing powder, and the Glitter Flat Back Bubbles, among other things, to create this happy space party, which glows in the dark.

Barbara‘s favorite color is Blue! She created a Christmas tag based on this color using in her background Brutus Monroe Mermaid Tail Embossing Powder for a starry sky. To complete her tag she added a Christmas tree from Tim Holtz stamp set  Inventor 5 and two cute Paper Dolls.

Cheiron was inspired by ‘B’to make a bright birthday card using Brutus Monroe Birthday Surprise Faux Sprinkles along with the CZ Design Birthday Palooza stamps and wafer dies. The sprinkles were attached to each cake with a Lawn Fawn Glue Tube.

Emma chose ‘B’ for book and created a vintage style Christmas Planner that she can use throughout December. She added Brutus Monroe Clear Acrylic Bubbles to her Tim Holtz Woodland Tree, together with a Paper Doll, a Christmas Baseboard and Quote Chip to complete the scene.

Kath chose “B” for Baubles created with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Whimsy Decor Thinlits. She used Brutus Monroe Mermaid Lagoon paper as a background, stamped Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Swirly Snowflakes with Distress Oxide inks and heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Icicle and Alabaster Ultra Fine Embossing Powders.

Lols made a birthday card using black cardstock and ink blending! She used a Brutus Monroe Birthday Memories Clear Stamp Set and Birthday Circle Mixed Media Stencil 

Maura blasted off into space and made a book using Eileen Hull’s Sizzix Wrapped Journal die  Brutus Monroe’s Blast Off stencil  along with his Tangled Waves stencil and Aqua Pigments in shades of blue like the Blue Green.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media “Be Unique” tag using Brutus Monroe Clear Stamps Rockstar Pets and added sentiments with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tiny Text Remnant Rubs.
