Simona had fun playing in her Dyan Reaveley Dylusions Journal and a peculiar group of 4 legged friends, using a Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz On The Farm, stamp set. She also used The Professor 2, Faded Type and Tiny Text stamp sets ,to create the focal point and home-made ephemera for the layers.

Anna-Karin has very fond memories of her family’s two miniature Schnauzers and made a card with Simon Says Stamp Little Critters Schnauzer die. The background was done with the Mix and Match Squares Stencil combined with the Halftone Background stamp.

Barbara uses her favorite Distress color, Salvaged Patina, to create an Etcetera Tag Mini with a sweet little teddy bear. She used Idea-Ology Found relatives, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Stencil Set 25, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stamp set Faded Type.

Cheiron created a tag with a girl and her best four legged friend. She created the background using Distress Matte Texture Paste and the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Countdown stencil and sprayed Ranger Distress Spray Stains over it. She stitched on a panel of paper from the Ideaology Backdrops Volume 2. She added Paper Dolls, a Stencil Card, an Adornments Heart and a sentiment from the Small Talk sticker book.

Emma‘s Mini Etcetera Tag was inspired by a scene from the movie, Mission Impossible and she used Tim Holtz’s Snarky Cats and the Under The Sea Thinlits Dies to recreate it. She stamped the mischievous cat and placed him on the branch from the Sizzix Arthur Colorize Thinlits which she covered with Garden Greens foliage.

Kath created a page in her Dina Wakley Blue Edition Media Journal inspired by cats who have the ability to nap at the drop of a hat. She used her favourite cat from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Halloween Snarky Cats and Crate, Gradient Dot and Bricked Layering Stencils to add interest and texture in the background. She added a hat from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Distinquished and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Classic Lower and Bold Thinlits with Idea-ology Snarky Small Talk Stickers for the title.

Lols  made a card using a Katzelkraft Les Chiens Stamp Set. For the background she used a Lawn Fawn Slimline Hillside Stencil, a Tim Holtz Bricked Stencil, Distress Oxide Inks and Modeling Paste. For the sentiment she used a Tim Holtz Label.

Macarena seems to be trying to make friends with bears so she used the cutest Simon Says Stamp Bear Hugs die over her favourite Tim Holtz Rings stamp. She adorned the projects with Simon Says Stamp Tender Leaves die.

Maura made a couple of birthday cards featuring Tim Holtz’s Snarky Cats, Carabelle Studio Cameleon stamp, Simon Says Stamp Dandelion Messages, and the newest color from Tim Holtz, Salvaged Patina.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia 8×8 Cosmos Paper on the background and decorated it with Tim Holtz Theories Quote ChipsQuotations Metallic Stickers and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Tiny Clips.

Sandra loves this cute Enervy stamp from Katzelkraft and had lots of fun coloring him in with Distress Oxides Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso

Zoey used her favorite Tim Holtz Stencils Dotted and Splotches to add texture to this tag. She also used a mix of Ranger’s Distress Ink in Oxide and Ink Pads. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology METALLIC Sticker Book and it matches perfectly with the beautiful Paper Doll.

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!
