Anne decorated a Large Etcetera Tag using Tim Holtz Inquisitive and Faded Type Stamp Sets, along with Black Embossing Powder and new Prize Ribbon Distress Ink, Oxide Ink and Embossing Glaze. For the circles she used Crackling Campfire Enbossing Glaze.

Andrea added some sizzle to this Dylusions Dyalog 2 Insert cover by heat-embossing images from Tim Holtz’s Big Number Blocks stamps.  The vivre sentiment is from AALL & Create’s Vivre washi tape and Altenew’s Bubble Wrap stencil and an embossing pen were used for the background.

Barbara mixed Embossing Glazes together with the new Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Sparkle set to create a frame for her tags. She created her background with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stencils Iron Works and Decayed, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Texture set, Distress Mica stain set 1 and 2.

Cheiron created a card using Heat Embossing as a resist to Distress Ink Blend over. She stamped and embossed the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Garden Background and ink blended with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Prize Ribbon, Rustic Wilderness and Twisted Citron. She finished her card with the Etched Flower Buds die cut and a Reverse Sentiment Strip.

Emma used a combination of Tim Holtz’s Embossing Glazes in various colours to create an enamelled effect on the body and wings of the stunning Sizzix Perspective Moth by Tim Holtz. She heat embossed the glazes before adding a final layer of Seth Apter Rock Road Embossing Powder and then mounting the moth onto a background inked with Distress Spray Stains.

Kath used Prize Ribbon and Crackling Campfire Distress Embossing Glazes and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder to heat emboss the stamped images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Field Notes and Faded Type on her background. She stamped and fussy cut the butterfly image from Specimen, coloured with Distress Re-inkers and sprinkled white and gold powders from Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamels Kit over the butterfly and the background and heat set from the back side of the panel.

Lols  made a card using a Katzelkraft Katz 02 Rubber Stamp. She used a Tim Holtz Graph Cling Stamp, Writing Stamp and Digits and Halftone Layering Stencils for the background. When it was all dry she heat embossed the cat image and added some Orca Sequins, washi tape and a label sentiment to finish.

Macarena made a simple one-layer tag using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous INVENTOR 3 stamp set. She embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Black Ultrafine Detail Embossing Powder.

Maura made a faux encaustic ATC, using Emerald Creek and Seth Apter’s Vintage Beeswax embossing powder. The beetle is from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Specimen set.

Meihsia was inspired to create a birthday tag using Simon Says Stamp and Dies DO WHAT IT CAKES Make Magic, and colored it with Zig Portable Gansai Tambi 14 Colors Travel Watercolor Set and Royal Langnickel Xen Watercolor Brush Set, then heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder Clear.

Sandra had fun using Distress Embossing Glaze Salvaged Patina and Rusty Hinge on Texture Paste in combination with the Typo stencil and with Versamarker adding color to a Paper Doll. 

Zoey used Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps LEDGER SCRIPT and clear embossing powder to create a resist effect on her tag. She also used Distress Oxide Inks and the new Tim Holtz Distress Mica Stain Set1 + Set 2 to add color. To decorate the tag she used pieces from Idea Ology and the Sparkle Set from the new release by Tim Holtz and Ranger Ink
