It is Tenia’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Tenia  used a super cute and simple Lawn Fawn Flying By Stamp Set! Yes….paper planes can fly!!

Andrea, an English major, made a flock of flying books to represent how reading can take us anywhere.  She used some of her favorite Infusions colors (Slime, Violet Storms and Rusty Car), Prima Oil Pastels, and a scallop die from Jane Davenport’s Happy Little Unicorn set.

Anna-Karin took flight through an art journal page, filled with butterflies and dragonflies. She used the AALL & Create #44 and #45 clear stamp sets by Tracy Evans, in combination with Paper Artsy Infusions.

Barbara choose to create a Mini Framed panel with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Entomology set stamps, Tim Holtz Sizzix Tangled twigs, Tim Holtz Sizzix Foundry. She use Distress inks to color her project.

Cheiron created a card using some fun flying things from the Tim Holtz Entomology set to create a buggy background. She used Distress Oxides to color in her critters and the letters from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Cutout Alphanumeric Lower Thinlits to create her sentiment.

Emma created a Framed Panel telling the story of Santa’s Christmas Eve flight around the world. She used Tim Holtz’s Yuletide Stamp Set to create the image which is dashing through the snow of glittered baubles set against a backdrop of a die cut globe.

Kath created a page in her Dylusions Black Creative Journal reminiscent of an old Christmas Storybook she loved as a child but this story features Santa’s standby team of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Merry Moose practicing their take off skills in a Falling Stars Layering Stencil snow blizzard and used Simon Says Stamp Believe, Big U and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Word Play dies to create the wording.


Macarena made an autumn panel with maple helicopter seeds using Tim Holtz Sizzix Layered Dragonfly die and colored her tree with Prima Metallique Brass paint, Lucky Emerald Brillance wax and several Distress Sprays.

Maura  let her imagination take flight and carry her to the moon in her card. She used Dina Wakley’s Silhoutte Women, Woodcuts stamps, and Moon Faces stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media Halloween tag using Tim Holtz Paper Doll Ancestors with Regal Adornments Metal wings, and decorated the tag with Idea-ology Pumpkin Pieces Findings.

Sandra couldn’t resist making one more Halloween card, featuring bats from the Batground stencil and spooking up some Paper Dolls

Zoey wanted to fly to the moon and back and she used distress paint and different embossing powders to create this little scenery

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!
