Cassie’s sweet treat uses the classic Tim Holtz Cupcake Blueprint Stamp. She added some Keepsakes Ephemera and an Idea-ology Flash Card. She used distress ink colors Carved Pumpkin, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain

Andrea made a treat box using Whimsy Stamps’ ATC Book Dies, Carabelle Studio’s Sardines stamp set and Simon Says Stamp’s Inside Friendship Messages stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a tag inspired by a spring/Easter cake. The pink cake was die cut with Simon Says Stamp Fancy Cake and inked with Distress Oxide Ink. The background was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Solid Grid Background stamp.

Barbara was inspired by the sweetest ingredient ever: honey! She made a couple of tags by mixing new and old Tim Holtz products. To create her tags she used: Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Patchwork Pieces stamps set, Layering Stencil Honeycomb, Tim Holtz Sizzix Modern Floristry, and Funky Insects, Tim Holtz Ranger Foundry Wax Kit 1

Cheiron created a card with some sweet little bunnies looking for candy. She used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Bunny Games die along with a sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Spring Shadows set. She added some Rock Candy Distress to make her eggs egg-stra sparkly!

Emma created gift bags for her Easter table using products from Tim Holtz and dies from Sizzix. After assembling the die cut Tim Holtz Treat Bag, she used the Papercut Chicks and Bunny Games Thinlits Die sets to decorate each of them, before adding accessories which she die cut using The Park Thinlits die set.

Kath decided to give some love to some older Tim Holtz products, Sizzix Sweet Treats, Funky Wreath and Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower Thinlits and Stampers Anonymous Blockprint stamp set and Mini Layering Stencils from Sets 6 and Set 8 to make Spring/Easter themed cards to pop into Easter Treat gift bags

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Oriental Garden 12 X 12 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Stamperia Casa Granada Stencil and Tim Holtz Sizzix Bold Text 1 ThinlitsDie.

Sandra likes sweets and made a big faux candy Faceted Heart wrapped in tin foil colored with Pool Alcohol Ink and Alloy Rose Gold. The background is made with Distress Saltwater TaffySalvaged Patina and Speckled Egg

Zoey used the theme to celebrate her birthday! She made herself a tag with the newly released chapter 2 modern floristry that she colored using Distress Oxide and Distress Crayons. For the texture she used Distress Texture Paste Matte and she also used StampersAnonymous Stencil Bubble to add even more texture!

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!
