It’s Cassie’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 :-)

Cassie used the Tim Holtz Life Adventure stamp set for this week’s challenge. She added a Quote Chip, Hardware Heads and Snippets to enhance this wildlife adventure. The elephant is colored with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink

Andrea made a wild plant tag using some wonderful dies: Studio Light’s Label and Moodles, along with Paper Rose’s Eucalyptus Stem 3 and Small Eucalyptus Stems.

Barbara was inspired by the rainbow and nature by creating a card that combines these two elements! She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Brushstroke Butterflies Thinlits dies, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Brushstrokes stamps set, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Stencil set 43, a rainbow of Distress Ink pads including the new Mini Kit 17.

Cheiron created a card featuring Gladys, who most certainly has a wild side! She cut the Tim Holtz Colorize Thinlits Gladys and added her to a tag that had been sprayed and stenciled using the Stampers Anonymous Dotted Layering stencil and Distress Spray Stain in Salvaged Patina. She finished her card with a Small Talk Snarky sticker.

Emma created a journal layout inspired by a Tim Holtz idea-ology Snapshot photo depicting a couple who seem to be “wildly” in love. She layered the photo over a sheet of wildflowers paper from Backdrops Vol 1 and surrounded it with flowers, die cut using the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Modern Floristry Thinlits Die Set.

Kath had fun creating cards using Gertrude, Winifred and Harrison, the wild and wonderful African animals from Tim Holtz/Sizzix Colorize Collection and Funky Foliage Thinlits. She used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bubble and Tiles Mini Layering Stencils to add interest to the Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide background and Simon Says Life Is A Party stamp set for the sentiments.

Macarena is a bird singing lover so she put a pair of Tim Holtz Feathered Friends on a tree made with Altenew Tree Bark 3D embossing folder and the Tim Holtz Funky Wreath dies.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Savana Die Cuts and decorated it with Stamperia Savana A5 Colored Wooden Shapes and distressed the embellishments with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Distress Ink Pad Gathered Twigs Ranger.

Sandra created a thanks card using the Wildflowers stamp set with a colorful background made with sprays, powders and paint like,  Distress Spray Stain Salvaged PatinaSpeckled EggMetallique Paint Stormy Ocean and Nuvo Shimmer Powder Green Parade.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Sizzix Artsy Stems to decorate the background of her tag, she also used different Distress Oxide Spray Inks and Ground Espresso Distress Ink to highlight the texture. For the cluster she used a couple of new IdeaOlogy Ephemera Snapshots , Snippets and Ephemera Snippets Number strips

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!
