Susan thinks that nothing goes better than friends and coffee! She used a Tim Holtz Cafe Colorize Die and Alphanumeric Classic Dies. For the background she used a Simon Says Stamp’s Blossom Field Embossing Folder and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Bouquet Flowers colored with Distress Inks.
Andrea inked up some coffee filters to add color and texture to her tags. She used lots of Infusions colored stains (Green Man, Lemoncello and Royal Blood to name a few) and cut the tags using the Maker’s Movement Nested Tags die set.
Barbara was inspired by Sizzix Tim Holtz’s Retro Oven die to cook a card full of cookies, perfect for Valentine’s Day!
She used Simple Plaid Thinlits die by Tim Holtz Sizzix to create her background, Bold Text 1 and Stacked Tiles Hearts for the sentiment.
She chose Ranger Distress Ink Pads Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose to color the Retro Oven, they are the most suitable colors for this day!
Cheiron used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cats combined with an armload of candy from the Crazy Things and Halloween Doodles. She finished her card with a sentiment from Bold Frights and embossed it with Picked Raspberry Distress Embossing Glaze.
Emma is taking a dapper gentleman out to dinner and used the The Count Colorize die by Tim Holtz who is all dressed up with a bowler hat taken from The Gent Thinlits Die Set and an umbrella from The Park Thinlits Die Set, to create a Small Etcetera Tag that is all about fine dining.
Kath created a card featuring the UK’s favourite drink, a nice cup of tea, using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Doily 3D Texture Fade, Cafe Colorize, Stacked Tile Hearts and Alphanumeric Varsity Thinlits, Idea-ology Engraving Layers and Mini Marquee Letters.
Maura made a popcorn themed birthday card, using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Treats Blueprint stamps, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bold Sayings stamp set, and Simon Says Stamp’s Assorted Card Fronts.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Idea-ology BACKDROPS VOLUME 1 on the background, and decorated it with Altenew FRIENDS FOREVER Clear Stamps, Tim Holtz Idea-ology GAUGE FRAMES Embellishments and Ranger Dina Wakley Media SPEAK OUT Chipboard Shape.
Sandra had so much fun coloring in the Oddball With A Coffee Stamp with lots of different Distress Oxide inks. To protect the colored stamp she used MicroGlaze and applied Distress Spray Stain Speckled Egg and Pumice Stone on top of it without any problems.
Zoey used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Milk Caps to create the little cluster on her tag, she also used Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps LEDGER SCRIPT stamped with the newly released Tim Holtz Distress Archival Ink Pad MINI KIT 5. She also used the Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze WILD HONEY to highlight the background and the Tim Holtz Idea-ology SNARKY Small Talk just had the perfect sentiment for this theme!
