Deborah‘s project this week is called “Peeping at Spring.” She created the egg with tissue paper over a balloon, used the following Tim Holtz’s dies: Papercut chicks-colorize, Wildflowers, Wildflowers #2, Wildflower Stems #1, Wildflower Stems #2, and Wildflower Stems #3. Various distress ink spray stains were used to color both the chicks and the flowers.

Andrea made a bright and cheery card out of a black Dylusions Journaling Tag. She decorated it with a Tim Holtz Flashcard and Studio Light’s Border Patrol Out of This World die.

Anna-Karin made a card with two crocus flowers this week, celebrating the brightness of spring. She used the Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Flowers stamp set for the flowers and the Reverse Crackle Background stamp together with Pawsitivily Saturated inks Trio 10 for the background.

Barbara couldn’t resist creating a rainbow tag, perfect for this week’s theme! Gladys Colorize Thinlits Die by Tim Holtz Sizzix is the fabulous star of her project! She used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil Nature to create the background mixed with Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss.

Cheiron used one of her new favorite Reverse Confetti stamps, Friendly Florals to create her colorful card. She stamped the florals and sentiment with Distress Archival Ink in Black Soot. Then she colored in the florals using Distress Ink Reinkers and a Detailer waterbrush. She added Black Soot Distress Paint splatter and dried with a heat tool.

Emma used the wonderful Gladys Colorize Die by Tim Holtz and Sizzix for her bright and cheerful tag. Gladys is set against a background created using the Bouquet Layering Stencil and Distress Crackle Paste, coloured with Distress Stains, and then placed amongst die cut Large Funky Floral foliage.

Kath created a fun and whimsical slimline card with a bright and cheerful Easter Theme using Tim Holtz/Sizzix PaperCut Chicks Colorize, Bunny Games and Simple Plaid Thinlits and a sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Spring Shadows.

Macarena went totally light and pastel while making her card for the first day of Spring. She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Countdown for the background and Pink Fresh Studio Stitched Scallop Circle with Mama Elephant Foliage Frame and Tim Holtz Sizzix Feathered Friends dies.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Oriental Gard 12 X 12 Paper on the background and decorated it with Stamperia Alchemy Sun and Moon Grayboard and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Theories Quote Chips.

Sandra used two bold colors for this card, Distress Spray Stain Crackling Campfire and Salvaged Patina, and the background is also bold by using lots of stamps like Halftone and RingsEntomologyDapper and Faded Type

Zoey used the super cute Bunny Games Thinlits with the Lovestruck Colorize for her focal piece of the tag. She also used the new Saltwater Taffy distress ink and Saltwater Taffy Spray. To add some details in the background she used the Field Notes stamp pad .

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!
