Andrea’s tag shows off the beautiful new STAMPtember® Deco Squares stamp along with Inky antics’ Color Wheel stamp. She also utilized Lawn Fawn’s Rolled Roses die and the Nested Box Tags die set from Maker’s Movement.
Anna-Karin made a wall-hanger with the STAMPtember® Sunflower Background stamp, which is her son’s favorite stamp from the release. The flowers were colored with Prismacolor pencils and she die cut the title with the Simon Says Stamp Chunky Happy die.
Barbara was inspired by Halloween to use one of her favorite stamps from the set Tapestry CMS 414 by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. To complete her card she used Simon Says’ beautiful Engraved Feather die from this year’s STAMPtember® collection. The background is made with various Ranger Alcohol Inks.
Cheiron used a sentiment from her new favorite STAMPtember® CZ Design Halloween People paired with the new STAMPtember® Fractured Background Cling inked with Distress Inks. She combined it with a Tim Holtz Halloween Paper Doll and some Bitty Bats and then added some Soft Black Pearls from Lucy’s Cards.
Emma created a tag using one her favourite, and most used Simon Says Stamp stamp sets, Tiny Words Encouragement. She layered a Tim Holtz Photo Booth image over an arrangement of Etched Laurel Leaves inked and coloured with Crackling Campfire, Speckled Egg Distress Spray Stains and a touch of Crackling Campfire Embossing Glaze.
Kath created a card using 2 of her favourite Simon Says Stamp stamps, Beautiful Flowers and Stronger Together, watercoloured with Crackling Campfire and Bundled Sage Distress Oxides and used the Square Dance Stencil to add monoprint interest on the background
Macarena made a save the Earth card using the STAMPtember® items like Simon Says Stamp Fractured Background and the Tender Leaves die. She cut out the Tim Holtz Sizzix Globe from the Tim Holtz Metallic Craft Stock.
Maura is going around in circles in her art journal. She used the STAMPtember® Simon Says Stamp Circle Pattern Stamp, with Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift Ink, Simon Says Stamp Be a Mermaid set, and Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearl Inks.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media Halloween tag using Simon Says Cling Stamp Crackle Background on the background and decorate it with Simon Says Stamp Stencil Floating Leaves and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Monstrous.
Sandra’s favourite Halloween stamp set is the Tim Holtz Mini Halloween #3 set, it’s versatile and spooky! She used it to make a pirate hot air balloon, and she used the script stamp of this set in the background. She also used the Etched Laurel Leaves die from the STAMPtember release and created some texture with Grit-Paste and added some metallic finish with the Bronze Age and Firebird wax.
