Laura fell in love with the Tim Holtz Leaf Fragment Dies at first sight! She cut the leaf from a background created using a Gel Press after having modeled it, I made it the protagonist of this card  on an Alcohol Ink background.

Andrea made a fat little book of blessings using Waffle Flower’s A7 Disc Bound die set and Red Binding Discs. She also used Dina Wakley’s I Am stamp set and Sweet ‘N Sassy’s So Grateful stamp set.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page featuring Tim Holtz Feathered Friends in shades of yellow and orange. The leaf pattern was made with the Simon Says Stamp Tumbling Leaves stencil.

Barbara chose one of her favorite dies, Skeleton leaves by Tim Holtz Sizzix, to create a card inspired by Thanksgiving day. She used Ranger Distress Spray Stain for the background, the sentiment is from the stamp set Bold Sayings CMS 433 by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous.

Cheiron used the Simon Says Stamp Lined Leaves and XL Greetings 3 stamps to create her mini slimline card. She colored the leaves in a fun fall palette using Copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies. She added a greeting from the XL 3 Greetings set. To finish her card, she added Black Soot Distress paint with a Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush.

Emma used a Stampers Anonymous Size 8 Etcetera Tag to create a make for Thanksgiving and used the Sizzix Oak Leaf 3D Impresslits Emboss & Cut Folder by Tim Holtz to create a floor of leaves for her woodland scene. She completed the make by adding the woodpecker from the Cozy Winter Thinlits Die Set and idea-ology Toadstools.

Kath has been busy making packs of thank you cards and envelopes to donate to one of her favourite local charities. She used the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Poinsettia 3D Embossing Folder, coloured with Crackling Campfire and Shabby Shutters Distress Re-inkers, the script from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed, heat embossed with Simon Says Antique Gold Embossing Powder and Simon Says Thanks Sentiment Strips, coloured to match, for the sentiments.

Macarena says Thank you on her watercolor card where she applied Prima Marketing Oriental Wall stencil in a negative way. On the main panel she played with watercolor stamping of butterflies from Tim Holtz Specimen stamp set. She adorned the card with some Sizzix Wildflowers dies.

Maura is thankful for many things this year, especially family, friends and health, as well as a cup of pumpkin spice coffee now and then, which inspired her card. She used Impression Obsession’s Thankful Banner and Pumpkin Spice Kitty stamps, along with PhotoPlay Fall Plaid papers.

Meihsia was inspired to create a simple thank you card using the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Backdrops Volume 1for the background and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Steam Thinlits Die. The sentiment was die cut using CZ Design Extra Large Thank You Wafer Dies.

Sandra made a thank you card using one of the large stamps from the Specimen stamp set. She used a Distress Oxide Spray and Spray Stain in the colors Speckled Egg and Salvaged Patina, along with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain and Distress Ink Ground Espresso for the background. 

Zoey used Tim Holtz Sizzix ALPHANUMERIC STRETCH LOWER AND NUMBERS Thinlits Dies to create the focal point on this tag. She also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology SOLOS PAPER DOLLS to create a mask over the background made of Distress Inks Oxide and Distress Spray Ink.

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!
