This week we’re welcoming the lovely Wanda Hentges into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her on Instagram before then you are in for a real treat!

Wanda created a card using Studio Light Letting Go Mask and Nature Lover Background Stamp Set. Distress Paints were used to create the background. Distress Translucent Texture Paste were used with the mask and foiled with Silver Deco Foil. Thinking of you is from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Friendship pack.

Andrea used Studio Light’s Mini Zig Zag Journal Dies to make a fabric tag book. She also used Simple Stories’ Color Palette paper and Craft Consortium’s Grunge Light Tones paper. She finished it off with die-cut numbers made from from Tim Holtz’s Sidekick Starter Kit.

Anna-Karin made a light and airy card this week using Studio Light’s Timeless Peony set. The papers and vellum sentiments are from Studio Light Vintage Spring Mixed Paper Pad. She also used Studio Light Organza Ribbon & Hemp Cord Pinks.

Barbara created a card using two stencils for the background: Circles Mask by Studio Light and Spots (mini version, set 59) by Stampers Anonymous. In the center, the flowers are part of the Abstract Florals stamp set by Tim Holtz. The colors used are Ranger Distress Ink Pads Dried Marigold, Seedless Preserves and Salvaged Patina.

Cheiron created a floral card and used Studio LIght Brown Hemp Cord as an accent on her floral card. To make the card she used the Tim Holtz Floral Trims and Ledger Script stamps that she colored in with Distress Oxides, added detail with Distress Watercolor Pencils and Distress Black Soot Paint Splatter. To finish her card she added a CZ Design hello die.

Emma used a Studio Light Funky Tag which she layered onto an Etcetera Panel and die cut Rosettes. She created a pastel background by blending Distress Inks through the Mini Dots Layering Stencil from Set 59 and then added the star of the show, Gladys, the Colorize die from Tim Holtz and Sizzix, who is all dressed and ready for a summer Carnival.

Kath created a card for a gardening friend inspired by the poppies in her garden, nodding their heads in the gentle breeze. She used Studio Light Wildflower Basket stamp set coloured with Tim Holtz/Ranger Ink Distress Watercolor Pencils, Studio Light Sentiments Essentials Sticker Book and Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Spots Layering Stencil.

Macarena made a textured tag in pastel colors. She used Studio Light Background Elements dies for the base and then painted it with Tim Holtz Ranger Flip Top Distress Lost Shadow Paint and added some color with Dina Wakley Ranger Scrible Sticks.

Maura created a light, pastel background for her Studio Light Funny die cut tag using Daniel Smith Watercolors like Quinacridone Coral blended with Winsor Newton Permanent White Gouache. The cute ephemera are from Studio Light Art By Marlene’s So-Fishticated Paper Elements.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Sea Land 8×8 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Studio Light Vintage Postcards DIY Block Mini and Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault World Travel Thinlits Dies.

Zoey used Studio Light Vellum, Unicolor & Elements to create the layers on her tag. She also used Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Scribbly Butterfly and other Ideaology Embellishments
