It is Lucyna’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!

 Lucyna made and decorated a vintage style box. She stamped the background with Stampendous Cling Stamp Crackle using Fiskars Compact Stamping Press and Tim Holtz Distress Archival Ink Pad Mini KitHero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink Copper And Bronze were used to outline the edges of the box.

Andrea added some flair to these vintage Tim Holtz paper dolls by giving them some color and adding a sentiment from Inky Antics’ Crafty Comments stamp set.  She used more vintage Tim Holtz Collector design tape in the background.

Anna-Karin was inspired to made a vintage wall-hanger about past times, using an old family photo. The Simon Says Stamp Leafy Frame was used for one of the background layers, and the roses were made with Tim Holtz’s Tattered Pinecone die.

Barbara this week had a precious gift by her mom: a wonderful collection of vintage family portraits! Today’s theme is perfect for using your grandpa’s photo! She has created an Etcetera tag using new Distress oxide spray set , Tim Holtz Etcetera PaperieTim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Dapper and Tim Holtz mini Stencil set 16.

Cheiron created a vintage inspired Vignette Box using Idea-ology Paper Dolls, and a Baseboard Frame inside a Vignette Frame. She finished the outside of her project a Quote Chip and some ribbon from her stash. 

Kath created a Shabby Chic Vintage panel on Dina Wakley Canvas Media Board, using Distress Oxide Sprays, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Scrollwork and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Large Stems and Tattered Butterfly BigZ dies to decorate

Lols made a card for a U.S. WW2 Veteran who will be celebrating his 100th Birthday in a few days. There is an appeal for cards if you would like to send one. I used a Tim Holtz Theories Cling Stamp, a Simon’s Exclusive Schoolhouse Red Ink Pad and Card Stock and a Black Zig Brush Marker

Macarena sees the past times in a shabby chic style and she made a bright shabby tag on the Tim Holtz Etcetera Mini Tag Chipboard base giving texture with Tonic Worn Linen Expanding Mousse through Simon Says Stamp Extra Large Dots stencil.

Maura was inspired by her recent trip to visit her sisters to create a scrapbook page. She used Graphic 45’s Travelogue Collection with its wonderful vintage images, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chips and Ranger Fire Mixed Media Powder.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Baseboard Frames and Idea-Ology Silverware Adornments for the embellishments. 

Sandra loves vintage style and combined it with some mixed media effects for her card using the Mixed Media die set and the Latticework stencil with Texture Paste, and she added color using Nuvo Shimmer Powders Catherine Wheel, Cherry Bomb and Solar Flare and Infusions Sunset Beach and Black Knight.

Zoey used a bunch of distress paint to decor this Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Tiny Houses. She also used a photo from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Photoboot Vintage Photo.

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!
