It’s Rox’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 2 months. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Rox  made a card using Tim Holtz Urban Chic and WaterColor Cling Stamps. She embroidered 3 kisses to the stamped heart and machine stitched a row of red cotton through the hearts at the bottom of the card. She blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and spritzed with water. She framed with black cardstock and machine stitched the border and finished with a ‘Love’ Sticker.

Andrea made a heart-themed card using two new wonderfully quirky die sets from AALL & Create: Numberama and Heartnook. She added some text from Tim Holtz’s Sideshow and Seasonal Scribbles stamp sets.

Anna-Karin made a tag with many hearts. Tim Holtz Hearts stencil was combined with Distress Opaque Crackle Paste for the hearts in the background. The larger hearts were die cut from Clearly For Art Modeling Film using the Simon Says Stamp Folding Heart & Window die.

Barbara made a Valentine’s tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Lovebirds Thinlits Dies. For the background, she chose Tim Holtz Sizzix Tree Rings 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder painted with Ranger Ink Scorched Timber Distress Spray Stain. To create the red hearts she cut Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain Cardstock White and painted them with Ranger Ink Lumberjack Plaid Distress Ink pad. The sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous stamp set Tiny Text.

Emma is feeling the love in the air and created a Size 8 Stampers Anonymous Etcetera Tag. She combined Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies, and layered the 3D heart from the Vault Rosettes Thinlit set over the top of the Heartbeat, from the Heartbeat die set. Her heart is wrapped in rusty wire and placed over the top of the background embossed using the Damask 3D Texture Fade.

She also made a tiny heart charm using the 3D heart from the Vault Rosette Set.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Ticking and Grain with Mini Layering Stencils from Sets 6 and 8, Tim Holtz/Sizzix True Love Colorize, Vault Hippity Hop, Vault Funky Floral Wreath and Alphanumeric Shadow Lower Thinlits to create a Valentine’s Day card.

Lols made a card using a Tim Holtz Bunny Stitch Die Set. She spritzed Picked Raspberry and Lost Shadow Distress Oxide Inks onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock and then used Texture Paste and a Simon Says Stamp Hearts and Stars Stencil to add the design and then sprinkled with Hero Arts Earth Safe Glitter. She added a heart garland and finished with a sentiment.

Macarena made a layered card with a smaller heart from Tim Holtz Sizzix Lovestruck Colorize dies. She place it inside Simon Says Stamp Nested Domed Arches dies and on top of a composition made of Darkroom Doors Lots of Labels stamped and fussycut.

Maura created an art journal page using Stamping Bella’s Tiny Townie Wonderland Playing Card Guard, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Crazy Cats and Dogs, and watercolors like Daniel Smith’s Quinacridone Coral.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Orchgids and Cats Paper on the background, and decorated it with Simon Says Stamp Kissing Booth Wafer Dies and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Locks and Keys Adornments.

Zoey used Distress Spray Stain + Distress Oxide Spray for her background. She also used Sizzix Bold Text 2 and Sizzix Vault Funky Florals to decorate it!
