Anita used Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Tile Etched Dies and acrylics for her tag, with My Favorite Things City Block Background cling stamp, Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, and Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink for the background. For the quote, she used Lawn Fawn Alphabet clear stamps, and stamps from the My Favorite Things Well Hello clear stamp set.

Andrea made a folio using two die sets from Papertrey Ink: Go To Gift Card Holder Book and Go To Gift Card Holder Book Pockets. She also used Studio Light’s Writing Background Elements die set and Simon Says Stamp’s Fine Petal Leaf Branches die set.

Anna-Karin made an autumn tag and used Tim Holtz Bubbling die to stamp the background. The sentiment was die cut from Simon Says Stamp Matte Gold and Island Blue Cardstock using the You Shine die. The bright flowers were stamped with Simon Says Stamp Real Leaves.

Barbara created a couple of tags with a lot of Die Cuts by Tim Holtz Idea-ology: Paper Dolls, Halloween Ephemera pack, Halloween Layers, Halloween Transparencies. For both backgrounds, she used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Exquisite stamp set and Ranger Distress Pencils.

Cheiron used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Modern Floristry dies over a background she created with the new Distress Watercolor Pencils. She also used the pencils and a Detailer Waterbrush to highlight and shade her die cuts and finished the card with a sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Noteworthy set.

Emma used one of her all time favourite die sets, Tim Holtz’s/Sizzix Funky Wreath, combined with the Halloween Vault Series 2021 to create a fun tag for Halloween. She layered the die cuts onto a background of Black Woodgrain Card, and added Translucent Grit Paste through the Thorned Mini Layering Stencil which she embossed with gold embossing powder to create an enamelled effect.

Kath created a card featuring two cats out on the prowl, looking for love perhaps, by the light of the moon using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mischievous and bats from Gate Keeper Thinlits. She also used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Moon Mask Stencils, branch image from Mr Bones, sentiment from The Scarecrow and script stamp from Entomology.

Lols made a card using Tim Holtz Tag and Simon Says Stamp Groovy Happy Birthday Dies. For the background she used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks, splattered with water and then she white heat embossed the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Candles. The American Crafts ‘Sweet Rush’ background paper, and the Groovy Happy Birthday Dies are in the September ‘Let’s Celebrate’ Card Kit.

Macarena made a very light and delicate card using Mama Elephant Framed Tags Doily Lace die for the frame and inside she put and stitched down a pair of butterflies from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Butterfly Bigz die.

Maura made a Halloween scene in her art journal. She used Tim Holtz’s Mischievous die set, the Tim Holtz Moon Masks, and Simon Says Stamp’s Fanfare stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media holiday tag using Paper Rose WINTER STROLL 12×12 Paper Pad on the background, and decorated it with die cut embellishments using CZ Design Stamps and Dies ORNAMENT OPTIONS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology CHRISTMAS Ephemera Pack.
