Andrea made sure Frankie was bringing his own frame to the party. She used My Favorite Things’ Trendy Tag die as well as Tim Holtz’s Ghoulish die. She utilized her Gel Printing Plate to make the background and topped Frankie’s hat with a Dylusions Back Chat sticker sentiment.
Anna-Karin made an art journal page with both die cut and stamped frames. She used the Soaring Tree Frame by Poppy Stamps for the focal point. The circles were stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Circle Sentiments Christmas set and the background was done with the SSS Bubble Wrap stencil.
Barbara created a mini Etcetera tag using two fabulous stamp sets by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous, Specimen and Tapestry. She had much fun playing with new Distress color Crackling Campfire and various Distress Ink Spray Stain. She framed the insect with a Baseboard frame by Idea-ology.
Cheiron created a Halloween Tag using the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Curiosities Sticker Book along with a Deco Frame. She created her tag from Halloween Worn Wallpaper and added accents from the Halloween Baseboards and Ephemera.
Emma used the stunning new Stampers Anonymous Specimen stamp set by Tim Holtz to create a small Etcetera Tag and framed this beautiful but uninvited guest, using Baseboard Frames and a Vignette Frame to create layers and depth.
Kath created a page for her Art Journal to tell the strange story of Amelia Hardy using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Vellum Haunts and the floral image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed, coloured with Crackling Campfire Distress Re-inker, to create a frame.
Lols was inspired by THIS beautiful wall hanging made by Macarena and decided to make something similar. She used a Tim Holtz Bottled Up Bigz Die and a Wildflower Stems Die for the focus and a Stacked Deckled Die for the frame. She used various Distress Oxide Inks along with a STAMPtember® Autumn Splendor Stencil and a Tim Holtz Burlap Layering Stencil.
Macarena stayed in a Sea World playing with Tim Holtz Sizzix Steampunk Parts BigZ die and several rust products as Emerald Creek Chunky Rust Baked Texture embossing powder and Viva Decor Rusty Paper Paint.
Maura made a fall inspired shaker card, using the Simon Says Stamp Frond Collage Die, a STAMPtember Old Letter stamp, Tim Holtz Sizzix Fall Foliage die cuts, and the new Crackling Campfire ink by Tim Holtz and Ranger.
Zoey used a lot of items from Tim Holtz Halloween release. For the base she used the brand new Cracking Campfire distress ink, a Mini Stencil Set 49 and she also used Crackling Campfire Embossing Glaze over the scripts stamps from the Dearly Departed Stamp Set. She framed everything by stitching the edges using her sewing machine!
