This week we are welcoming the lovely Anita Rao aka Beads, Charms and Wire into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Anita made a tag/bookmark with Simon Says Ornate Background Cling Rubber Stamp and Memento Ink Pads for the background, and Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink along the edges. The insects are from the Tim Holtz Entomology Cling Rubber Stamps set and are colored using watercolors, and the sentiment is from the Simon Says Tiny Words Clear Stamps set.

Andrea made a tag using Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember Bold Leaves stamp set, along with the Simon Says Stamp/CZ Design’s Introverts Unite stamp set. She also used Simon’s Circle Loops die and Waffle Flower’s Nested Tags dies.

Anna-Karin made a shaker card this week, using the fun Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® You’re Sharp stamp and die set. The sentiment on the label comes from the Simon Says Stamp Printmaking Birds set and the background was stamped with the Ledger Background stamp.

Barbara created a colorful card using mixing old and new Simon Stamps sets: the new You’re a sharp from the Stamptember collection and, Abstract Triangles. To color her card she chose a rainbow of Ranger Distress Ink pads.

Cheiron used Simon Says Stamp Etched Oak Leaves and Handwritten Hello and saved the stamping for the inside of her card :) She inked up her leaves with Distress Inks in all the fall colors and gave her card a splattering of Foundry Wax. She cut her Hello from Tim Holtz Metallic Kraftstock.

Emma used Simon Says Stamp Blending Brushes and Positively Saturated Inks in Mocha, Citrine, Pucker, Cherry, Lucky Charm and Sherbet to add colour to her Fall Foliage die cut leaves, before adding the arrangement onto a background, stamped using Tim Holtz’s Exquisite stamp set by Stampers Anonymous. To complete the tag she used a stamp sentiment from the SSS Sassy Thankful stamp set.

Kath used a kissing technique with Simon Says Ying Yang Cling Stamp from the STAMPtember release and Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dots Background stamp to create the background on her card, Distress Grit Paste with Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Roses Layering Stencil and Distress Embossing Glazes and Idea-ology Photobooth and Sentiments Label Stickers.

Lols made a card using a new Simon Says Stamp Fern Corner Die from the latest STAMPtember® Release. She smooshed Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks onto a Craft Sheet, spritzed with water and dipped in the Watercolor Cardstock, drying with a heat tool between colors, she then used this to die cut the Fern Corner. For the background she splattered some inks, added a few sequins and stamped a sentiment from a CZ Design Spring In My Step Stamp Set.

Macarena used the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Oh Frank set to make this a bit spooky card. She played with several Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink colors to get this Halloween mood background.

Maura made a Halloween card with the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Oh Frank set (which is oh, so cute!), along with Tim Holtz Classic Kraft paper, Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint, and Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks like Lucky.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Paper Rose WINTER STROLL 12×12 Paper Pad on the background, and stamped the sentiment using CZ Design Clear Stamps ORNAMENT OPTIONS and Tsukineko VersaFine ONYX BLACK Ink Pad.

Zoey used Simon Says Clear Stamps Circle Sayings for the sentiment of this one layer card. She also used Tim Holtz Exquisite stamp set and used Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils Set 1 to color the image. The base is from the White A2 card fronts by Simon Says Stamp.
