This week we are welcoming the super talented Sabrina aka It’s Time To Create-My Mixed Media Corner into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog you are in for a real treat! Please pop by to say ‘Hi’ :-)

Sabrina   made a stunning card, with an amazing foil background, and a beautiful sentiment. She used Gina K Designs Brilliant Blue Holographic Fancy Foils Deco FoilStars and Stripes Foil-Mates Sheets, and True Friend Sentiments Foil-Mates Sheets. The foliage was die cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Garden Greens.

Andrea added some foil flair to her duo of tags.  She used Gina K. Designs’ Decorative Tags die set and Therm O Web Rose Gold Deco Foil.  The patterns she added foil to are from Dina Wakley’s Text and Scribbles stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a set of two cards and a bookmark, using the beautiful Gina K Watercolor Flowers set. The cards were embellished with Crystalline Drops

Barbara couldn’t resist to use Gina K Designs Making Waves stencil to create her background for The Professor Stamp by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous! She used Ranger Frozen Shiny Transfer Foil Sheets over on the waves and  tentacles stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Sea life set.

Cheiron created a foil striped background paper for her card using the Gina K Designs Ornamental Holiday Foil Mates and the Thermo Web Shattered Glass Deco Foil Transfer Sheets along with the Royal Sovereign 12 Inch Laminator Machine.  She cut the paper to use as one of her circles with  The Stamp Market Circle Card Cover and Hey dies. 

Emma used a Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag as a base for her vintage style project and used Gina K Designs Wild Dandelion Deco Foil to add some subtle, shimmery accents to accentuate the Grit Paste that she applied through the Gina K Designs Foliage Art Stencil layered over the top of Memoranda Stash.

Kath decorated a Wall Panel and added Gina K Designs Dazzling Orange Deco Foil accents to the Distress Oxide Sprays background and Idea-logy Transparent Wings

Macarena made a vintage layered card using Tim Holtz Inventor 2 and Entomology stamps with Gina K Therm O Web Fancy Foils and Dark Chocolate Embossing Powder

Maura has been foiling Tim Holtz Butterflies with Gina K foils in Jelly Bean Green, Wild Dandelion, and several other colors in her art journal, while dreaming of spring.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Translucent Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper on the background and decorated it with Thermo Web Gina K Design Sweet Mango Fancy Foils and Sizzix Geo Springtime Thinlits Die.

Sandra made a card using Gina K Designs Rose Gold Embossing powder and Rose Gold Foil as some of the accents of her background, she also used Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Solar Flare and Catherine Wheel to add some color.

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!
