Tenia   “When I think of Cityscapes I think of Altenew’s AWESOME line of Sketchy Cities Stamps!!! I created this card using Altenew’s Sketchy Cities America 2 Set!! Fun times!!!”

Andrea made travel-themed tags out of some cityscape postcards from Altenew’s gorgeous Reflections Scrapbook Kit.  She gave them some added oomph using AALL & Create’s Border 26 stamps and Prima’s Oil Pastel Crayons.

Anna-Karin made a tag which started out as a Christmas tag and ended with a night-time cityscape. She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Cityscape Metropolis for the buildings and embossed them with Ranger’s Gunmetal, Mixed Media Sea and Aqua Tinsel powders.

In this period Barbara only thinks of Halloween! She created a themed Halloween cityscape with Tim Holtz Sizzix Haunted House, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mr Bone, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Quote Tokens and Distress oxides.

Cheiron created a Halloween scene in the city using the Tim Holtz Swirling Stars Thinlits and Citiscape Metropolis Thinlits. She gave it a fun and spooky touch with a ghost from Halloween Hangouts Thinlits and a sentiment from Halloween Shadow Script.

Emma created something dreadfully wicked for Halloween and made a party invitation using Tim Holtz’s Cityscape die, combining it with the zombie from the Ghoulish Die Set and completing the scene with the owl, taken from the Mr Bones Stamp Set.

Kath created a “Christmas In The City” page in her Dylusions Creative Journal using Tim Holtz Snowflake and Star Mini Shifters Layering Stencils, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Cityscape Skyline, Retro Merry Christmas and Stitched Ovals Thinlits

Lols created a citycape Christmas card using a Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowglobe Die Set. She used Alcohol Inks, a Falling Stars Stencil and Alcohol Blending Solution for the background and added a Santa with Reindeer to fly over the rooftops

Macarena made a cozy city scene with the background embossed with Carabelle Studio Texte Grunge embossing folder. The buildings from Tim Holtz Sizzix Cityscape Skyline and Tim Holtz Sizzix Snowglobe dies were covered with Ranger Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

Maura created her own rusty cityscape using Seth Apter’s Paper Artsy 09 Eclectica3 and 10 Eclectica3 stamp sets, along with the Simon Says Stamp Grid stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media art journal page with The Crafters’ Workshop Small City Buildings Template and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Story Sticks.

Sandra is in full Halloween mode so she made a spooky card using the Cityscape Metropolis die set. For her background she worked with Distress Ink and Oxide and the Shattered stencil.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp CITYSCAPES and Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Hickory Smoke and Old Paper to create this texturized double ATC

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!
