Autumn made a bright springtime card with the Tim Holtz Brushstroke Flowers 1 dies, the Funky Wreath dies and a butterfly from the Botanical Layers Ideaology ephemera pack.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page with a very bright color combo. She used the Simon Says Stamp Mix and Match Squares Stamp Set to create the background, stamping with both Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink. The flower is Simon Says Stamp Hibiscus Bloom.

Barbara couldn’t wait to use the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Under The Sea1 Colorize dies in a super colorful project! For the background, she used Distress spray stains, two Tim Holtz stencils, Bubbles and Stone, and the leaf branch from Sketch Greenery stamp set by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous.

Cheiron loves making colorful creations. This week she is using a gelli print as her background that she created with paint and Stampers Anonymous Digits, Dotted and Ringer. She cut her painted panel with the Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Wafer dies. She finished her card with a Photobooth photo, a Numeric metal number and some hearts cut from the Sizzix Falling hearts die set.

Emma used the Sizzix Bloom Colorize Thinlits die set by Tim Holtz to create a ray of sunshine on her card. She used Mustard Seed and Crackling Campfire Distress Inks to colour the blooms and layered them over the Flowery Thinlits die cut background that is enamelled with Distress Embossing Glaze and Simon Says Stamp embossing powders.

Kath just happened to have some very bright, cheerful panels inspired by a recent Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains YouTube Live demo in her backgrounds box, perfect to turn into cards with the help of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Floral Layering Stencil, Distress Grit and Texture Paste, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop and Field Notes and Idea-ology Sentiments Label Stickers.

Macarena made an underwater scene with a yellow submarine using Tim Holtz Sizzix Wacky Transport die and the Stampers Anonymous Rings stamp for the background. She mixed Distress Inks and Oxide pads. On her blog you can see how the submarine moves by wagging the card.

Maura doodled and colored a fishy scene for her junk journal, using Daniel Smith watercolors like Sap Green and Permanent Orange, along with Dina Wakley acrylic paints in Turquoise and Lime.

Meihsia was inspired to create a Mother’s Day card with spraying Ranger Dylusions Shimmer Spray over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Doodle Art 1 on the background, and decorated it with Simon Says Stamp Mother’s Day Flower Wafer Die and Prima Marketing Sewn With Love My Sweet Flowers.

Sandra used Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry as the two bright and cheerful colors for her card, along with Nuvo Shimmer Powder Solar Flare and Cherry Bomb

Zoey used Distress Crayon in her favorite color combo, a combination that makes her happy. She also used Distress Paint to color the background of the tag. She used the Wildflower die that she colored with Kitsch Flamingo paint + Glaze to add the bright in her tag and Mixed Media Thinlits to add texture to the background. She also
