It’s Estelle’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Estelle made a book nook using Tim Holtz Mini Brickwork and Mini Lumbar 3D Embossing Folders. She used Lawn Fawn Virtual Friends and the You’re Just My Type Clear Stamps and Dies. All colored with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Sprays .

Andrea made a bookmark using Spellbinders’ Big Dot Slimline Embossing Folder and Dina Wakley’s I Am stamp set. She added plus sign accents and smaller dots with Altenew’s Positivity Washi Tape and their Halftone Stencil.

Anna-Karin loves embossing folders and used nine of Simon Says Stamp embossing folders to create the background on this scrapbooking layout. She also die cut branches with, for example, Simon Says Stamp Etched Berry Branch and the Etched Delicate Frond.

Barbara created a tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Typewriter 3D Embossing Folder, Retro Type Bigz Dies, Ranger ink Walnut Stain Distress Paint, Distress Oxide Ink Pad Salvaged Patina, Prima Marketing Firebird Metallique Wax, and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Dolls Groups.

Cheiron used one of her favorite Simon Says Stamp Embossing Folders, Vine Canopy to create her black and gold card. She used Sizzix Gold Luster Wax Effects over the raised areas to show all of the beautiful detail. She added a Wreath of Love die cut out in black and gold and a sentiment from the So Much Love stamp set to finish her card.

Emma felt the love in the air and created a tag using Tim Holtz products including the Sizzix Circuit 3D Embossing Folder by Tim Holtz to emboss metallic kraft card. She used the Heartfelt die to create the large heart and love sentiment and combined this with an adornment arrow and die cut dimensional star from the Christmas 2021 Vault Series die set.

Kath created a love-themed card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Retro Type BigZ die, Typewriter 3D Texture Fade, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Hearts Mini Layering Stencil and Simple Stories Happy Hearts papers from Simon Says February Card Kit.

Macarena made an industrial and steampunk card using Tim Holtz Sizzix Circuit 3D embossing folder.  She stamped the bacground with Tim Holtz Glitch 2 set and used some gears from Tim Holtz Sizzix Mechanical Bigz L.

Maura was dreaming of spring and gardening while she embossed her tag, using the Simon Says Stamp Kaleidoscope embossing folder and Tim Holtz Sizzix Butterfly 3D Impresslit Cut and Emboss folder, along with some of Simon’s Pawsitively Saturated Inks.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Lumber 3D Embossing Folder on the background, and decorated it with Stamperia Romantic Journal Die Cuts and Prima Marketing Mauve Dream Sharon Ziv Flowers.

Sandra  embossed her card with the Simon Says Stamp Geometric Lattice Embossing Folder. But first she applied color with Distress Spray Speckled Egg and Salvaged Patina and highlighted the raised areas with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap and Distress Crayon Black Soot

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!
