Kerry picked a specific number for her daughter’s birthday and used a Tim Holtz Celebrate Die Set for the cake and streamers, a Holiday Script Stencil for the background and Distress Inks to color. She used a Postale Die Set for the small number candles and a Label Sticker for the sentiment, and she made an envelope to match. 

Andrea made a notebook cover using Elizabeth Crafts’ Number Reinforcers Dies for the numeric element. She also stamped on a quote from Tim Holtz’s Theories stamp set and used Simple Stories Flea Market patterned paper to add some floral touches to the background.

Anna-Karin used a whole bunch of numbers on this tag. The Simon Says Stamp vellum paper was embossed in Tim Holtz Numbered 3-D embossing folder. The small numbers were die cut with Tim’s Collector set and the larger ones with his Alphanumeric Emporium set.

Barbara has made a pair of tags in a very masculine mood! To stay with the theme she used different stamps and stencils from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous: Mail Art CMS 339 and Industrial Layering Stencil. In the center of her tags, she chose two Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Dies as male protagonists: Gentlemen and The Gent. For coloring, various Ranger Distress Spray Stains.

Cheiron created a colorful card using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Numbered Texture Fade. She colored in each of the numbers and the background with Distress Watercolor Pencils and added some splatter. She added a focal image from the Winged Things 1 stamps and a colorful greeting from Note Quotes.

Kath created a series of small notecards using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Pocket Cards for the backgrounds, decorated with Idea-ology Snapshots, Photobooth, Flashcards, Botanical Layers and added numbers using Ephemera Snippets, Typeset Collage Paper and Labeled Remnant Rubs.

Lols made a ‘New Home’ shaker card using a Tim Holtz Baseboards Window Frame. For the background she used a Distressed Bricked Cling Stamp along with Pumice Stone and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink and added some numbers using a Grunged Stamp Set. She added a a lucky Mischievous black cat, a Small Tattered Florals tree and Simple Sayings sentiment to finish.

Macarena made a flourish birthday card using Tim Holtz Halftone and Rings stamp for the background and embossed it in white using Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. She made a bouquet with Honey Bee Lovely Layers Wildflowers dies.

Maura made a time travel tag using Studio Light’s Fantasy Die Cut Tag, Carabelle Studio’s The Dragonfly and The Rabbits stamp set, and Simon Says Stamp’s Bold Numbers stencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix INTERTWINED 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder on the background, and decorated it with Simon Says Stamp LARGE HOLIDAY SHAPES Wafer Dies and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps VALENTINE BLUEPRINTS.

Zoey loves numbers and she used bold numbers stencil to decor her background. She also used a mix of Distress Ink and Distress Paints to decor her background. Tim Holtz’s ideaology embellishments such as Organic Layers and Paper Dolls Portraits were just perfect.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
