This week we are welcoming the lovely Susanne aks Susanne’s Blog into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!
Anna-Karin created a sunny neighbourhood on a tag for this week’s challenge. It was inspired by the STAMPtember® Concentric Doodle background, which made her think of sun rays. The houses were stamped with the Printmaking Houses set.
Barbara created a tag using Simon’s Cling Stamp Concentric Doodle as the protagonist. She decided to deconstruct the stamp by printing it several times and cutting out the concentric circles to create the background. She colored with Distress Oxide Ink Pads and completed the tag with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Inquisitive set.
Cheiron combined the new STAMPtember® Raindrops stamps along with the Umbrella die from the Tim Holtz Sizzix The Gent set. She created a background using the new Holiday Distress Mica Stains Set 1 and Set 2 and stamped the Raindrops using Distress Archival Inks.
Emma was inspired by the new STAMPtember® Love That Student Stamp Set to create a Halloween Wallhanging. She combined this stamp set with Sizzix Toil & Trouble Thinlits dies and stamped images from the Stampers Anonymous Tangled Webs and Mr Bones stamp sets by Tim Holtz stamped onto an inky background, complete with a full moon created using Tim’s brand new Moon Masks.
Kath created a contemporary Mini Slimline Christmas card using STAMPtember® Outline Ornaments Cling Stamp along with Tim Holtz Distress Winterberry and Frosted Juniper Distress Mica Stains from the Holiday Collection Set 2 and an old favourite, Simon Says Believe stamp set and Believe Shadow die
Lols made a card using a new STAMPtember® Triangle Burst Embossing Folder to add texture to the background. She used a Tim Holtz Large Stems Bigz Die for the focus and the sentiment is from a new Simon Says Stamp Sunflower Garden Stamp Set.
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!
