Anne loves to put a ‘not too scary’ Halloween project in my front window on All Hallows Eve. She used a Tombstone Etcetera Tag, Etcetera Trims, a Tim Holtz Witch Die, Cauldron Die, lots of idea-ology pieces and stitching on the tag and the witches dress.

Andrea made a scrap paper book using Reverse Confetti’s Square Window Tag die, Dina Wakley’s Abstract Figures stamp set and plenty of Dylusions paint.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page, using one of the papers from Tim Holtz’s Abandoned Paper Stash as a background. The focal point is the Perched Bird die by Memory Box, and the hearts were die cut with the SSS Thinking of You Heart.

Barbara was inspired by Tim Holtz Sizzix Faceted Heart Die , Tim Holtz Frightful Things Die, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Creepy Eyes to create a trio of tags themed Halloween! She used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Stencil  set 43 together with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Grit Paste, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxides spray: Black SootSeedless Preserves and Crushed olive to color them! 

Cheiron created a mixed media tag with faux stitching. She used Distress Spray Stains and Distress Oxide Sprays and stamped her tag with Distress Oxides and stamps from the Stitched, Sideshow, Theories and Mini Media Marks stamp sets to create a colorful combo.

Emma created a Halloween card using a combination of Tim Holtz stamps, Monster Reunion, Mr Bones and Tangled Webs and for her stitched element she used a sewing machine to create a border around the layered panels, leaving loose threads hanging to recreate the look of spider’s webs.

Kath created a wall panel to tell the story of two intrepid adventurers who went foraging in the woods in the dead of night but are now not sure if that was such a good idea. She used Tim Holtz Ideaology Abandoned Paper Stash, Life Of The Party, Wildflowers and Tiny Toadstools stamp sets, Halloween Paper Dolls and added faux stitching around the edges.

Lols decorated an Etcetera Tag using a Large Stems Die and Baseboard Doll for the focus and lots of Distress Oxide Sprays and a Bubble Stencil for the background. For the stitched element she used a Tim Holtz Stitches Cling Stamp Set, black versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder.

Macarena made a masculine B-day card for a cat lover using Visible Image Curious Cats stamps, Tim Holtz Inventor 7 for her shadow stamped background and faux stitching with Tim Holtz Stitches stamp set.

Maura stitched up a couple of tags using AALL and Create’s Zipp It #147 and #39 stamp sets, along with Simon Says Stamp’s Quilted STAMPtember stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a watercolored card using Simon Says Stamp Suzy’s Succulents Watercolor Print and Daniel Smith Ultimate Mixing Hand Poured Watercolors

Sandra stitched the edges of her Halloween card, she began with a sheet of the Abandoned Paper Stash, and added White Gesso in some places and made it orange using Infusions Orange County and Distress Ink Ripe Permisson

Zoey used Tim Holtz Idea-ology BOTANICAL Layers Paperie along with Inky Antics BIG HOUSES Clear Stamp Set 11427lc to decorate this little tag that will be used as gift tag!

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!
