This week we are welcoming the lovely Lucyna Marynowska aka U Luli into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!
Lucyna altered a CD to make a welcome gift for her new neighbors. The background was made with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Burlap and coloured with Perfect Pearls Metallics Kit. Inky Antics Tiny Houses Clear Stamp Set was used along with Archival Ink Pad Black. She embossed the tiny heart using Ranger Embossing Powder Red Tinsel.
Andrea is honored to see how her clever and ever-supportive team mates used some of her stamps this week! She used some of her own favorite sets from Inky Antics on these two tags: Circles and Frames, Long Hair Flair, Color Wheel and Tiny Houses.
Barbara has created a tag with Inky Antics set Sassy& Saucy designed by our super talented teamie Andrea. She was inspired by Rita Hayworth, atomic girl of the 50s! She used Distress oxides , Tim Holtz Sizzix Atomic Elements and Faceted Heart, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Halftone, Tim Holtz mini stencil set 9.
Cheiron loves the whimsical look of Andrea’s stamps, and why not make one of these gorgeous gals from Long Hair Flair into a redhead? The background of her tag was created with the Tim Holtz Burst Layering Shifter Stencil and tons of hearts from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Heartfelt die.
Emma instantly fell in love with Andrea’s Muse News stamp set and chose to use this set to create a very special card. She watercoloured the image using Distress Marker Pens and added small Faceted Hearts down the side to show some red.
Kath created a page in her Dina Wakley Media Journal featuring The Queen’s Quips stamp set designed for Inky Antics by our talented teamie, Andrea and used Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains and Layering Stencils to add colour and interest to the background.
Lols made a shaker card using a ‘The Queen Quips’ Clear Stamp Set designed by Andrea! She started by using a Gelli Plate, Dylusions Acrylic Paints and a Tim Holtz Ringer Stencil to create the background. She made the shaker element using a rectangle of Watercolor Paper and die cut a hole in the middle and then used a MFT Typewriter Text Cling Stamp and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink to add the design.
Macarena is calling Spring with sunflowers and ladybugs. She asked the Inky Antics Queen for help by embellish her with Tim Holtz Entomology ladybugs and placing some Tim Holtz Flower Garden instead of her crown.
Sandra added a lot of red to her card using lots of Distress Inks and Distress Oxides in different red tones, and she used the Inky Antics stamp set her teammate Andrea designed called The Queen’s Quip.
