It’s Anita’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Anita made a trio of ATCs showcasing trios of trees. She used a Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set for the background, and repurposed leaves from Tim Holtz Sizzix Artsy Leaves Thinlits Dies for her trees, coloring them with Tim Holtz and Prima Marketing metallic acrylics.

Andrea made a horizontal tag featuring trees from paper Rose’s Abstract Trees die set. The sentiment is from Poppy Stamps’ Whittle Forest Reindeer Kit and she used the classic Sizzix Tag Collection die set to cut out her tag-shape.

Anna-Karin was inspired by the winter wonderland outside her window and created a snowy pine forest. The background is embossed with Simon Says Stamp Tall Pines embossing folder . The trees in the foreground were die cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Forest Shadows die set.

Barbara created her tags with the most traditional Christmas colors! To stay on the topic she chose the stencil Tree Lot by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous as a background and Forest Shadows Thinlits Dies by Sizzix. At the center, there is a fabulous Santa from Jolly Holiday Stamps set by Stampers Anonymous. To give colors and texture she used Ranger Distress Spray Stain, Mica Stain and Distress Texture Paste Sparkle.

Cheiron created a Christmas card full of sparkly trees using the Simon Says Stamp Large and Small Bottlebrush Tree dies. She added snow to her background using Distress Texture Paste and the Falling Snow Stencil. She finished her card with a sentiment from the Season’s Tweetings stamp set.

Emma used some of her favourite Christmas idea-ology products from Tim Holtz to create a Stampers Anonymous Etcetera Panel. She layered these adorable Paper Dolls over a window frame from the Christmas Baseboards and Transparencies pack and surrounded them with Alpine Trees, decorated with Christmas Droplets and Mirrored Stars. She completed the project with a dusting of Mica Flakes for some winter magic.

Kath created a woodland scene in a Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Reliquary Dome using Idea-ology Woodland Trees, Christmas Salvaged Reindeer, Bubbles, lots of Distress Rock Candy Glitter, all illuminated with Idea-ology Tiny Lights. She die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Scribbly Snowflakes Thinlits from Simon Says Silver Glitter card backed with Tear-Rific Adhesive Sheets and used to decorate the dome.

Macarena used her favorite trees from Tim Holzt Sizzix Tree Line. She made a winter scene where a Tim Holtz Sizzix Merry Moose is seen through the window taken from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Baseboards.

Maura has been working on Christmas cards and is using the awesome tree from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Winter Woodlands set. She stamped the tree with Tim Holtz Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide ink, and used several other inks like Tim’s Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide ink.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Clear Stamps and Stencil HOLIDAY THINGS on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Clear Stamps and Stencil VINTAGE HOLIDAYS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2023 Christmas Adornments Deck The Halls.

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!
