Pauline created a magical sunrise scene using Lavinia Aurora, Wild Summer Flowers, Leaf Spray, Fairy Bell Set, Flower Collection, Silhouette Grass and Bird Collection stamped with various Versafine Clair and Versafine inkpads. The background was made using blended Distress Oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door) and Lavinia Acetate Circle Mask, and sparkle added using Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust Meteor and Galaxy gel pens.
Andrea made a tag celebrating rain. The tag is made out of Ranger Kraft Heavystock and was cut with the Tim Holtz Tag Collection die set. She used Dina Wakley’s Side Eye stamp set for the main image and collaged the background out of Spellbinders’ Florals Palette Paper and Dina Wakley’s Ledger Paper, Set 1.
Anna-Karin made an art journal page to remember the past week’s weather. One day it was spring and the next day everything was covered with a very thick layer of snow. She used Simon Says Stamp Four Flakes and Tumbling Leaves stencils for the background. The circle was made from a stamped piece of Simon Says Stamp Clear Acetate Sheet.
Barbara was inspired by the clouds to create her tag. She used two sets of stamps by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous: Bubbles, for the background, and Observations. The clouds are from Christmas Cutouts Thinlits dies by Tim Holtz Sizzix. She choose to color her project with Distress Ink Pad Salvaged Patina, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio and Shaded Lilac.
Cheiron is ready for sunshine and rainbows! She created a card using the sun from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Circle Play dies and the clouds from Christmas Cutouts dies. She added them over a Distress Ink Blended panel with some splatter and a simple sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Noteworthy set.
Emma is looking forward to some sunny days ahead and she made a card using Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix. She combined the Gentlemen Thinlits Die Set with the huge sun from Circle Play and the luggage and clouds from the Road Trip Colorize Die Set to create a scene that was layered over a background, stamped using The Professor 2 stamp set.
Kath created a card with a rainy day background using Tim Holtz/Ranger Dura Lar Clear Transparent Sheets with Alcohol Inks, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Distinguished and Dapper stamp sets, Alcohol Lift-Ink and decorated with Tim Holtz/Sizzix BrushStroke Flowers Mini Thinlits.
Lols was inspired by the snowstorms affecting the US and UK and made a card using a Katzelkraft Windy Day Rubber Stamp. She masked the image and used Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink and a piece of bubble wrap to add color and then used a Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil and Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste to add the blizzard. She added some machine stitching, Design Tape and finished with a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker.
Macarena made a wintery card since there is still a plenty of snow in Poland. She made a snowy scene using Tim Holtz Sizzix Alpine and Tree Line dies. The chunky snow was made with Cosmic Shimmer Snow Storm embosing sprinkles.
Maura had fun creating her cheery, fun tag from Art by Marlene Studio Light Funny Tags painted with Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints like Lemon and Magenta. Then she added a gentleman with an umbrella, ready for any weather, using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Gentlemen Thinlits die.
Meihsia was inspired to create a watercolored wall art using Studio Light MY GIRLS Clear Stamps ABM Mixed-Up Collection on the background, colored it with Daniel Smith Watercolor, and decorated it with Stamperia ALCHEMY 12×12 Paper.
