Sandra loves to make ATC’s, Artist Trading Cards, and wondered why don’t we have ATE’s, Artist Trading Eggs! She had lots of fun creating these small pieces of art using Tim Holtz Carrot BunnyLucky Love and Funky Nature Die Sets. Every day this week she will be showcasing a new egg over on her blog and on instagram.

Anna-Karin created a tag this week using shades of green. The stamps come from the Simon Says Stamp Forest Scenery set and the trees were embossed with Distress Embossing Glaze. She used various Distress Inks for the background.

Barbara made a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired card using many shades of green! She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Lucky Love 3D, Idea-ology paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock, Ranger Distress Embossing Glaze Rustic Wilderness, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous The Professor stamps set, and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering stencil Decayed.

Cheiron used her favorite color of Distress Green, Cracked Pistachio along with a bunch of springy Distress Paint colors to create her tag. She added layers with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Dotted and Digits and stencils. She completed her tag with some Paper Dolls, Clippings stickers and a Heart.

Emma chose to embrace the green colour theme throughout her project and created dimensional four leaf clovers using the Sizzix Lucky Love 3D Impresslits Cut & Emboss Folder by Tim Holtz, that cascade down a Size 8 Etcetera Tag. She completed the tag with the ‘lucky’ plaque using the Bold Alphanumeric Thinlits dies by Tim Holtz which she cut, and layered onto Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft Stash.

Kath used touches of green to decorate the front of a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Collection Folio. She coloured a panel of White Yupo Paper with Alcohol Inks, applied Distress Crackle Texture Paste through Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flourish Layering Stencil, added Idea-ology Worn Wallpaper Scraps and Entomology Collage Paper and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Typewriter 3D Texture Fade and Ideaology Small Talk Stickers to create the title.

Lols made a slimline card using a fabulous new Tim Holtz Wacky Transport Die Set, a variety of Distress Inks and a LDRS Rainy Day Stencil. For the sentiments she used Small Talk Sticker and Label Stickers.

Macarena made a steampunk card using Tim Holtz Sizzix Mechanical Bigz and covering the gears with several waxes colors: Lucky Emerald, Old Silver and Firebird. She composed the background by embossing Dapper, Glitch 2 and Grunged stamp sets. Her touch of green is Twisted Citron Oxide Ink embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Powder.

Maura loves the color green and St. Patrick’s Day, so she made a duo of cards, using Art Impressions Sham-rock stamps, Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf card stock, and Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Paint.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag with green background and decorated it using Prima Marketing Autumn Afternoon Pumpkin and Spice Flowers and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Keepsakes Ephemera.

Sandra made a card inspired by the jungle using Toner Ink with Minc Foil and Swirly Florals stencil with Texture Paste, and Garden Greens die set

Zoey used the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology SCRAPS Worn Wallpaper and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ephemera Pack EXPEDITION to decorate the background of this tag. She used Distress Crayon to color the background but before adding color she added a layer of Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium MATTE.

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!
