Lori loves Fall as the leaves change from green to red orange. To recreate this magical moment, she designed a 5”x7” Thank You card using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Acorns embossing folder, a sheet of Distress Watercolor Card Stock, and painted with watercolors. The sentiment was made with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Frame die, cutting the word and frame from Metallic Gold Card Stock and the shadow from Vellum. To complete the project, she used Master Layouts 8 to create a delicate frame for the painting.
Andrea was inspired by the leaves and pumpkins in the mood board to create her card. She used Papertrey Ink’s Farmer’s Market stamp set, Mama Elephant’s Oh Hi Loopy die set, and Whimsy Stamps’ ATC Antique Frames die set.
Anna-Karin was inspired by the mood board to do a scrapbooking layout with photos from a recent misty forest walk. The mushrooms were created with Tim Holtz Funky Foliage set and the birds were made with the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Birds Embossing Folder and Dies set.
Barbara loves so much the autumn colors so she was inspired by those to create her card. She used two stamps sets and a stencil by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Leaf Prints – Leaf Prints 2, Markings, Ranger Distress Mica Stain Set 3-4, Tim Holtz Sizzix Mischievous, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Textures Paste Translucent.
Cheiron was inspired by the pumpkins and black background and used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Pumpkins stencil along with Distress Texture Paste. She painted over the dried paste using DIstress Mica Stains and added some Gilded Foundry Wax splatter. She finished her card with a CZ Design Trick or Treat die cut.
Emma loves this time of year and when she thinks of autumn, she always thinks of Halloween and was inspired to create a home decor project using Tim Holtz’s Square Vignette. She created a ‘dreadfully wicked’ scene using Halloween Paper Dolls, Halloween Layers and combined them with two Sizzix/Tim Holtz dies, the Pumpkin Colorize Duo and a toadstool from the Myron die set.
Kath was inspired by Autumn, her favourite season of the year and the changing colours in her garden to create a card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Layered Plaid and Holiday Brushstroke 3 Thinlits from the recent Holiday/Christmas release but with a change of colour palette, they are perfect for any season of the year cards.
Maura was inspired by the changing seasons to create a fall scene in her art journal. She used the Tim Holtz Moon Masks, Tim Holtz’s Mischievous dies, and falling leaves with the Tim Holtz Leaf Fragments dies.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix LUMBER 3D Embossing Folder on the background and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix FALL FOLIAGE Thinlits Die and Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book.
