This week we’re welcoming the lovely Ann Chuang into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Ann made this card using a Paper Artsy Rubber Stamp Set. She used bright Copic markers for coloring, and Distress Spray Stains for the background.

Andrea used Paper Artsy’s Are You Cerise Infusions and Seth Apter’s Paper Artsy Eclectica ESA34 stamp set to create her notebook cover. She used AALL & Create’s SkyCrossed Paradise die set for the fun X’s.

Anna-Karin used a whole lot of Paper Artsy Infusions Colored Stains on this scrapbooking / art journal page. Infusions Colored Stain are great for creating colorful and textured backgrounds. The sentiments are a mix of Tim Holtz and Simon Says Stamp stamps. The title was die cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Alphanumeric Emporium.

Barbara created a pair of tags with spring colors using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil Splotches and the Paper Artsy Mini 122 stamp in the background. To complete the work she added the cute bunny cut with the Sizzix Vault Hippity Hop Thinlits dies and the butterflies with the Tattered Butterfly Bigz Die.

Cheiron created a tag to use on a card using Paper Artsy are You Cerise Infusions and Distress Mica Stains that she added Distress Opaque Texture Paste to using the Bouquet Stencil. She added some hearts from the Vault Lovebirds Thinlits dies, a Butterfly from the Flutter stamps and a Thoughts Label Sticker.

Emma created a bright and cheerful card and used a combination of PaperArtsy In The Navy Infusions and the Eclectica3 Set Apter Mini 73 cling stamp to make her background. She completed the card with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Scribbly Butterfly enamelled using Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glazes.

Kath used two of her favourite Paper Artsy mediums, Rusting Powder and Infusions along with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Funky Floral Wreath Thinlits to create a bright and cheerful, waiting for Spring, card.

Lols made a colorful Easter card using a Paper Artsy Eclectica 3 Nicci Battilana Cling Stamp. For the background she used Lemoncello and Green Man Infusions and white heat embossed Tim Holtz Rings down one side. She machine stitched around the edges and added Washi Tape, a Wildflower and heat embossed a Note Quote to finish.

Macarena made a masculine tag using Paper Artsy In The Navy and The Sage Infusions for the background. She made a composition of Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Tiles Hexagons. She heat enbossed the background with Simon Says Stamp White and Black Ultrafine Detail Embossing Powders.  

Maura was inspired to create a cheerful rainbow of colors in her art journal. She used Paper Artsy’s Jofy JM70 stamp as her focal point with its wonderfully weird message. She added to her design with Tracy Scott’s Paper Artsy TS085 stamps, and Paper Artsy Green Man and Magenta Infusions.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Paper Artsy MINI 131 Cling Stamp and Paper Artsy JOFY MINI 20 Lovebirds Rubber Cling Stamp on the background, and colored it with Zig CLEAN COLOR 90 SET Real Brush.

Zoey used Distress Ink for her background and some stencil like Splotches and Mini Set 33. To decor her index card she used Mini Paper Dolls.

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!
