Rox created a tag using Tim Holz Mixed Media Tags and a Sideshow Stamp Set. She used Distress Inks, Paints and Stains and a Dotted and Stitched Stencil and Stamp Set she also used Glossy Accents for extra dimension. She machine stitched around the tag and added a sticker sentiment to finish.
Andrea also thought Tim Holtz’s Sideshow stamp set was a great choice for this challenge and used it, along with Tim’s Glitch 2 and Seasonal Scribbles stamp sets, to bring this tag to life. Its fun and funky shape is courtesy of AALL & Create’s Tag it Yourself die set.
Anna-Karin made a card this week with a red vintage car going on a road trip. The car was stamped with Tim Holtz Stamper’s Anonymous Road Trip set and the rays in the sky were done with the Shifter Rays stencil. She also used on of her favorite stamp sets, Tim’s Odds & Ends set.
Barbara created a tag going back to one of her passions, steampunk/grunge style! For the background she used Sizzix’s Mechanics 3D Embossing Folder. In the center she chose two die cuts from the new Tim Holtz Collection, Vault Wildflowers and Vault Funky Floral Wreath, and Gentlemen Thinlits dies from an old collection. The colors are Ranger Ink Distress Oxides.
Cheiron created a collage card with a picture cut from a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snapshots of some fun gals and their fun wheels! She used Backdrops 1 and Backdrops 3 combined with some Ephemera from the Palette Ephemera pack . She added some splatter and a Quote Chip Label to finish her card.
Emma was inspired by the wheels of time and she created a Stampers Anonymous Etcetera Panel, covered with Collage Strips and Backdrops Vol 2 paper and added the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Timekeeper Clock as a focal point. She layered idea-ology Sprocket Gears in the centre of the clock and added a paper doll to complete the piece.
Kath created a trio of cards using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Brushstrokes and The Obscure with Distress Oxide inks to make colour wheel backgrounds, decorated with Wildflowers, Lovebirds and Rosettes Thinlits from the new Tim Holtz/Sizzix 2024 Vault Collection and Stampers Anonymous Note Quotes for the sentiments.
Macarena made a masculine card with a lot of circles on the background using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles and a speed wheel from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Gauge Dials as the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tailored gentleman’s head.
Maura created a slimline card inspired by dreams of travel and a nomadic way of life. Since there isn’t enough room for all the art supplies, she will probably stay home. She used the Lavinia Stamps Carriage Dwelling stamp , Simon Says Stamps Intense Black ink and Simon’s White Slimline card, along with watercolors and doodling to complete the card.
Zoey used Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Funky Floral Wreath to decorate her tag. She also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Photographic Collage Paper + Tim Holtz Idea-ology Photobooth to decorate! For the wheel, she used an old photo wheel die from Sizzix.
