This is Wanda’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for your fabulous creations over the past month! It has been a real pleasure having you along with us!
Wanda has created a butterfly card using papers from the Tim Holtz Wallflower Cardstock Pack and Vellum Pack, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Butterfly Duo, Tim Holtz/Eclectic Elements Craft Thread, Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Chit Chat Stickers, and Ranger White Opal Liquid Pearls.
Andrea made a sweet little card featuring Right at Home’s Cozy Cardinal stamp. She used Carabelle Studio’s Ronds Art Printing Texture plate and Dina Wakley’s Splatter Girl stamp for the background and added a Kindness sentiment from Simon Says Stamps’ Kind Flowers stamp set.
Anna-Karin turned to a great creature for this challenge, namely the elephant, and created a mixed media mini canvas using the StencilGirl Born to be Wild Animals stencil. She also used Dina Wakley’s Media Paints by Ranger , and a couple of texture stamps by Darkroom Door.
Barbara created an unusual Christmas card with Tim Holtz Sizzix Silly Monsters thinlits dies , Distress Oxides, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Crazy things and new Tim Holtz layering stencil Merry Christmas!
Cathie created a moonlit sky using Distress Inks. The peaceful winter scene features dainty deer from the Tim Holtz Winter Wonderland die set and accessories from the Home For The Holidays die set. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Toys stamp set.
Emma was inspired by the Scottish Highlands and used the Dashing Deer to create a focal point on her home decor project. She surrounded him with foliage, die cut using the Garden Greens dies from Tim Holtz and mounted him to stand proud on vignette boxes, covered with papers from the Halloween paper stash.
Kath had a fun production line day of crafting, filling up her Christmas Card Box with the help of a favourite feathered friend from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bird Crazy and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Greetings
Macarena decided to focus on butterflies. She used Memory Box Butterfly Ensemble die to build the background and played experimenting with Prima Sparks Paints and Prima Oil Pastel Crayons. In the center she placed Sizzix Stitched Ovals and Tim Holtz Botanical butterfly.
Maura made two thank you cards for her sisters with the Simon Says Stamp Under the Sea set and Tim Holtz’s Stampers Anonymous Life adventure set. The Simon Says Stamp Daniel Smith Watercolor sets in the Shari Carroll and Debby Hughes palettes worked beautifully.
