This week we are welcoming the lovely Rox aka Red Dirt Crafter into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Rox made a beautiful card using a Paper Rose Watercolour Landscapes 6×6 Paper Pack, Candied Apple Distress Oxide and Dylusions White Linen Ink to make the background. She then used a circle die, a Paper Rose Modern Poppies Stamp Set and Honeysuckle Circle Die to add foliage. She finished by adding a Paper Rose Little Bird 2 bluebird.

Anna-Karin created a red, white and blue background with Simon Says Stamp Mix and Match Circles stencil on kraft cardstock. The dimensional pansy flower was made with Paper Rose Etched Pansy 1 die set.

Barbara used the Paper Rose Eucalyptus Stem1 as the focal point of her tag. For the background, she used Tim Holtz Sizzix Woodgrain Colorize Thinlits Dies and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk Stamps Set.

Cheiron created a festive tag for the 4th. She used Paper Rose Arty Love papers to create her tag. She cut shapes from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Media Marks and Falling Stars dies. She attached all of the pieces with a tiny attacher to make it super easy. Finally she cut the Countdown number from red paper and added it to a seal that I cut with the Sizzix Seal Switchlits

Emma used Paper Rose Textures 1.0 Paper Pack to create the background on her Stampers Anonymous Small Etcetera Tag that she made in celebration of the 4th of July. She completed the project with a Paper Doll Portrait, a vintage clip and Flashcard.

Kath made a card to wish all her friends in the USA a very happy 4th of July using Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink and Paint, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bubbles, Falling Stars Layering Stencil and Mechanical Element Stencils, Sizzix Alphanumeric Shadow Upper Thinlits and balloons fussy cut from Paper Rose Sunny Days patterned paper.

Macarena made this masculine card using Paper Rose Dad’s Shed paper collection. She placed a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Stencil Cards inside a baseboard frame.

Maura decided to use red, white and blue for her star themed card. She used Paper Rose’s Starry Night stencil and Arty Love 1.1 paper pack, along with Darkroom Door’s Shoot for the Moon stamp.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Oriental Garden 12 X 12 Paper on the background and decorated it with Paper Rose Shelby’s House Clear Stamp and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quote Bands Findings.

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!
