Monica made a winter tag using the Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Crazy Dogs along with Tim Holtz Sizzix Framed Thinlits Tags Die set. She used the paper piecing technique to layer the dog’s body elements and add more dimension, along with some outfits from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Winter Critters Thinlits Die set. To complete the tag she added the sentiment from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Festive Words Thinlits Die set and some iridescent sequins.

Andrea made some neighbor appreciation tags featuring four-legged friends from Tim Holtz’s Funny Farm stamp set. She also used Whimsy Stamps’ Boho Rainbow dies and AALL & Create’s Our House stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a tag featuring one of her favorite animals. The elephant stamp comes from Tim Holtz Purely Random set. The stars were die cut from Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Velvet Luxury Cardstock Shades of Blue using the Simon Says Stamp Stars die.

Barbara used Idea-ology Paper Dolls with two beautiful dogs to create a couple of tags. As her background, she chose Idea-ology Pocket Cards mixed with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Floral Elements stamp set and Flourish Layering stencil ( Mini version set 10). The color palette is Yellow/Blue and made with Ranger Ink Mini Ink Pad Prize Ribbon, Blueprint Sketch and Fossilized Amber.

Cheiron used Tim Holtz Paper Dolls solos to create a tag with the best 4 legged friend of them all. She created the background of her tag using Typeset Collage Paper, Distress Crackle Paste and Distress Embossing Glaze for lots of color and texture. She added ephemera and hearts from the Falling Hearts Thinlits to finish her tag.

Emma flipped an Etcetera tag upside down to create a different shape to create a King For A Day. She sat Harrison on a podium, that was made using the birthday cake from the Celebrate Colorize die set and added a crown using dies from the Abstract Elements Thinlits Die Set.

Kath created a trio of fun and funky Valentine cards with fuzzy bunnies die-cut from Sizzix Neutral and Festive Felt using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bunny Stitch Thinlits. She used Distress Light Gray Woodgrain cardstock for the backgrounds, Idea-ology Floral and Agenda Linen Tape and Simon Says Love You Greetings for the sentiments.

Lols made a card using Katzelkraft Les Chiens and Les Balloons Red Rubber Stamps. She colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and used Paper Rose Arty Love Paper for the background. She finished with some Tim Holtz Christmas Design Tape and a Sentiments Label Sticker.

Macarena went cute and sweet this time and made a baby card with a sweet kitty from Stamperia Daydream Toys Soft mold. The background was made with Tim Holtz Brushstrokes stamps and in the frame there’s a half of Tim Holtz Perspective Butterfly die giving some lightness to the card.

Maura headed to the farm this week with Tim Holtz’s Funny Farm stamps, Echo Park Fun on the Farm Paper Pad, and reminisced about a family trip to the farm as a little girl, in her Dylusions Creative Journal.

Meihsia was inspired to create a simple card using the paper from Stamperia KLIMT 6×6 Paper on the background, and decorated it with the cute dog image from Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps CRAZY DOGS and the sentiment from CZ Design Wafer Dies BASIC TRIO.

Zoey used the negative from Bunny Stitch Thinlits Dies and pieces from Numbered 3D folder to decorate her tag’s background. She also used Distess Spray Stain and Distress ink to add color. To embellish she used Ideaology Ephemera and Ideaology Stickers
