Andrea made a party page in her Dylusions Creative journal. She used some of her favorite stamp sets (Inky Antics’ Write On and Big Bold Borders and Carabelle Studio’s Ronds) to build up the background.
Anna-Karin made an art journal page to celebrate the coming of a new year. She inked rays with Tim Holtz Shifter Rays stencil and Distress Oxide ink and die cut the big SSS Lined You from Silver Glitter Paper and vellum. The journaling was stamped with the Paper Artsy Travels and Journeys set by Alison Bomber.
Barbara created some samples of invitations to the Christmas party with Tim Holtz Sizzix Gift card bag, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini paper Stash Christmas, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Yuletide Gathering, Tim Holtz Sizzix Circle Words Christmas and Ranger Ink Stickles Christmas Red.
Cheiron used the Tim Holtz Deck the Halls Colorize Thinlits to create a festive New Year Card by cutting them out of lots of bright Metallic Papers from the Jewels, Confections and Metallic Paper Stash 8 x 8 pads. She finished her card with a sentiment from the Christmastime 2 stamp set, embossed in silver.
Emma created a trio of ideas for her festive table and used a Mini Mason Jar and a Vignette Box covered in papers from the Tim Holtz Christmas Paper Stash to create party favors, together with place name holders that uses the Alphanumeric Label die to personalise each name tag.
Kath created place name cards for her Boxing Day Party table using Simon Says Gnome For The Holidays stamp set and Lil Gnome die with Tim Holtz Ideaology Metallic and Metallic 2 Kraftstock and Alphanumeric Classic Lower Thinlits
Maura made a cute little Gnomie sticky note holder for all those lists and party notes that pop up at this time of year. She used the Simon Says Stamp Lil Gnome die, Kringle and Co PhotoPlay papers, and added some fun Darice pom poms in Red and White.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Simon Says Clear Stamps Celebrate You for the balloons and decorated it with Prima Marketing Joyful Christmas in the Country Flowers.
Sandra made an invitation to a party and used the Ornate Lace stencil with Texture Paste added color by applying a bit of Opal Magic Paint Yellow Pink and Rose Gold as a base and started building up color with Nuvo Shimmer Powers and Infusions.
Zoey used Pentart M2 Metal Flakes and Ranger BIRTHDAY Letter It Stamp Set to create these “New Year’s Party”. She enchanted the beautiful Cheers Stamp with Ranger Embossing Powder GOLD Tinsel . To close the invite she used Tim Holtz Idea-ology INDEX CLIPS Fasteners.
