Ann used Tim Holtz Shifter Burst stencil and two different embossing powder to make the background. The image stamp comes from Paper Artsy Lynne Perrella 045. She used Distress Markers to color it.

Andrea made some tags using Altenew’s Bubble Wrap stencil, Paper Rose’s Hud stencil, and Simon Says Stamp’s Falling Snow stencil. She used Inky Antic’s Quirky Alphabet stamp set for the sentiments.

Anna-Karin made a wall-hanging from a piece of cardboard. She used the Darkroom Door Lavender Small Stencil together with texture paste to create the flowers. The main sentiment comes from Darkroom Door’s Make Art stamp.

Barbara needs many colors to contrast this difficult time! She created a bookmarks series with a lot of Tim Holtz stencilsSnarky Cat stamps set by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Black cardstock by Simon Says StampRanger Distress Oxides Ink pads and Ranger Distress Resist Spray.

Cheiron used the new Bubbles Layering Stencil along with Crackle Distress Texture Paste and multiple colors of Distress Embossing Glaze to create a colorful background for her card. She added lots of Stampers Anonymous stamps including: The Professor 2, Glitch 1 and Glitch 2. She finished her card with a ticket from the Idea-ology Urban Layers pack and a piece of Vintage Flair.

Emma used Tim Holtz’s Bouquet Layering Stencil to create a background for her canvas panel and die cut Scribbly Butterflies. She applied Crackle Distress Texture Paste through the stencil and added colour using Distress Embossing Glazes before layering the panels and completing the piece with a Theories Quote Chip.

Kath created an Art Journal page in her new Dina Wakley Blue Edition Media Journal inspired by her favourite Delft pottery and signs that Spring is on the way using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bouquet, Halftone and Digits Layering Stencils with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bottled Up BigZ die, Wildflower Stems 1 and Alphanumeric Classic Upper Thinlits

Lols  made a Mother’s Day card using a Tim Holtz Large Stems Bigz Die and a Bubble Layering Stencil.

Macarena played with 4 small Simon Says Stamp LEAVES stencils to create a background for the Tim Holtz Sizzix BOTTLED UP die which she embossed using Stampendous CHUNKY GOLD embossing enamel.

Maura went for a simple and colorful design in her Ranger Dylusions Black Art Journal, using several Simon Says Stamp stencils like Flora and Leaves, along with Prima Marketing Water Soluble Oil Pastels.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set 39 for the texture on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Cut Out Leaves Thinlits Die Set.

Sandra made a card using a few stencils like Dot Fade along with Distress Paint Broken China and Grime with Emboss it Dabber and Gold Embossing Powder. She also colored Texture Paste with Distress Paint Black Soot and used that with the School House stencil and on top of it she added Sage Embossing Powder.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Typeset collage paper to create the background then used a mix of Tim Holtz Mini Stencil to create some interest into it. To decorate the tag she used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Ephemera Field Notes and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Clipping Stickers Book
