Teresa used a small Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag and some Wood Slices as the base for her fall inspired scene. She used Lumber and Typewriter 3D Texture Fades for the background and used Filament and Retro Type Bigz Dies for the focal points of the tag. She used Alphanumeric Tiny Type and Funky Foliage. and completed the tag with some Reindeer Moss.

Gitta made a couple of cards using a Tim Holtz Alphanumeric Bulletin Die Set, Tall Text Cling Stamp Set Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks.

Andrea made a notebook cover featuring all sorts of funky fonts. She made a silhouette using Tim Holtz’s Photomatic faces and also used Tim’s Abandoned and Backdrops, Volume 4 paper sets. She added even more text with Dina Wakley’s Ledger Paper, Set 1 and AALL & Create’s Washi Tape (Poets and Mix and Match).

Anna-Karin made an autumn card with various text and script elements. The patterned paper comes from Tim Holtz Halloween Layers and Paper Dolls. The leaves were die cut from paper that had been stamped with Simon Says Stamp Old Letter and an alphabet stamp from Tim Holtz School Desk.

Barbara created a duo of tags using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Shattered and Foreboding stamp sets, Crossbones, and Halloween Script. Sizzix Moonlight Thinlits Dies is absolutely perfect for this project! She chose Ranger Distress Mica Stains and Spray Stain to color her tags: Mulled Cider, Holly Branch, Villainous potion.

Cheiron created a card for Halloween using the Happy Happy Halloween Die by Simon Says Stamp/CZ Design. She placed it over a background using the Halloween Damask Stencil that she had inked up with Black Soot Distress Ink and Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain. She created the bright orange accents by adding Distress Opaque Texture Paste and Spiced Marmalade DIstress Embossing Glaze.

Emma created a card for Halloween using a combination of dies by Tim Holtz and Sizzix. She invited Mr Bones to a Halloween ball, placing him next to the Big Frights Die which is layered over an inky background, coloured with Distress Spray Stains and Oxide Sprays. She completed the card with clouds from the Edison Colorize die set.

Kath made a fun Halloween card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Edison Colorize, Moonlight and Artsy Leaves Thinlits. She added text to the background and the leaves using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed and Idea-ology Remnant Rubs and used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Christmas Cartoons and Tiny Frights for the speech bubble sentiment

Macarena made a pastel colors card using for the background the Hero Arts Antique Map Bold Print stamp and for the main panel, a frame from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween 2023 Baseboards and Transparencies. She stamped the Tim Holtz The Inspector alphabet on an acetate piece with Tsukineko StazOn Cotton White Ink.

Maura made a set of birthday tags for her globe trotting sister. She used Seth Apter’s Paper Artsy EM66 stamp, Seth Apter’s Paper Artsy EM73 stamp and did some ink smooshing on the Tim Holtz Glass Media Mat.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2023 Halloween Baseboards and Transparencies on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology SKULLS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology LOCKS AND KEYS Adornments.

Zoey used a bunch of Tim Holtz Alphabet dies that were left from older projects. Then she used Distress Paint to add color to the tag. To decorate the tag she used Birds Silhouette and the Skulls from the Graveyard.
