Ann made this card using Tim Holtz Tailored Thinlits Dies,  Lucky Love 3D Impresslits Cut and Emboss FolderSeal Dies and Switchlits Embossing FolderDistress Spray Stain, and she used a Typewriter 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder for the background.

Andrea made a round-edged card using Avery Elle’s Pierced Rounded Frames die set. She used Tim Holtz’s Noble Gent stamp set and Backdrops (Volume 4) paper as well as paper from Dina Wakley’s Collage Sparks, Collection 3.

Anna-Karin made a tag with quite a bit of green this week, celebrating one of the very first spring flowers. The background was white embossed with Tim Holtz Tiny Prints background and inked with green shades of Distress Ink. The flowers were stamped with Simon Says Stamp Blooming Meadow and colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Barbara created a card dedicated to St Patrick’s Day using the new Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp set Mr. Rabbit. She adds a cloverleaf cut with the Sizzix Lucky Love 3D Impresslits Cut and Emboss and a sentiment, cut with the Sizzix Alphanumeric Tiny Type Upper Thinlits Set. She used various greens by Ranger Ink: Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness and Bundled Sage Distress Ink Pad.

Cheiron created a clean and simple card using the Lucky Love dies. She cut out the clover and colored it with Distress Mica Stains in Wicked Elixir and Bubbling Cauldron. She cut her card panel from Distress Watercolor Cardstock and cut out the sentiment from the Bold Text 2 and backed it with Metallic Kraftstock.

Emma created a home decor Etcetera panel in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. She used Tim Holtz’s The Count die by Sizzix, who is all dressed up in his fancy dress costume and framed him in an Etcetera Facade, surrounded by Bouquet Findings and die cut foliage, cut using the Funky florals 3 die.

Kath used lots of her favourite products to create a Bit O’ Green card – Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mr Rabbit, Bundled Sage, Rustic Wilderness and Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide inks, Distress Watercolor Pencils, Bakers Twine and Sweet Strawberry Heart Sprinkles.

Lols made a card using the wonderful Tim Holtz’s Gladys as the main focus. For the background she spritzed with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Inks before adding Schoolhouse and Halftone Layering Stencil designs. She added some Funky Florals a Simon Says Stamp Winsome Branch and finished with a few Pinkfresh Studio Ice Drops and a Tim Holtz Sentiment Sticker.

Macarena put a shiny, embossed green scarab from Tim Holtz Specimen stamps on the Framed Tags base which she colored with Distress Oxide Inks and made a composition using Idea-ology Gauge Dials and Vintage Labels die.

Maura had to really challenge herself to add just a bit of green. She created a mixed media page in her art journal using Tim Holtz’s Funky Insect dies, Paper Artsy Tracy Scott TS085 stamp set, Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Honey ink, and just a touch of green with Tim Holtz Rustic Wilderness Watercolor Pencil.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Simon Says Stamps and Dies Easter Critters on the background, colored the tag with Zig Clean Color 30 COLOR SET A Real Brush and added sentiments using Tim Holtz Idea-ology CLIPPINGS Sticker Book

Zoey used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Bubble and Lace to decorate her background. She then Used Twister Citron to add color. She also used Scorched Timber and Gathered Twigs to add some dark contrast. For her sentiment she used the alphabet in the Vault Hippity Hop.

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!
