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

Laura created a series of atc’s using a Gelli Arts Printing Plate and an AALL & Create Scripted Thoughts Stamp Set. For the main focus she used stamps from Trois Fleurs and Butterfly House sets. She added frayed cheesecloth fabric and sentiments to finish

Andrea made a mini notebook with plenty of pops of red! She used AALL & Create’s Heartnook dies, as well as their Frayed Frames dies. She also used their Crazy Maison stamp set to add some interest to the background.

Anna-Karin made a tag with blue, red and a little white (but also some brown and turquoise). She used the AALL & Create Wings of Glory stencil for the birds. The title was die cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault World Travel from Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red cardstock and Black Glittery cardstock.

Cheiron created a card for the 4th of July using the AALL & Create Lotsa Dots Stencil along with some Distress Spritz to make her shiny background panel. She added a flag image from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Americana Blueprints and a sentiment from Crazy Talk. She added some embellishments with stars cut with the Falling Stars dies using Metallic Kraftstock.

Kath created a card to wish all her friends in the USA a very Happy 4th of July using AALL&Create Frayed Frames Dies 26 and Light Life & Love Ephemera Die-Cuts 23, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Stripes Layering Stencil with Barn Door Distress Spritz, Spellbound Layering Stencil with Distress Texture Paste Opaque and Distress Rock Candy Glitter, Paint By Number and Curiosity Shop stamp sets, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Varsity Thinlits and Idea-ology Specimen Remnant Rubs

Macarena used a background made of several blue paints remaining from some previous project. Then applied Tim Holtz Distress SPARKLE Texture Paste through the AALL&Create Evergreen stencil. She gave a red touch with Tim Holtz Abstract Florals stamps.

 Maura had fun creating a science themed card for a friend. She used AALL and Create’s Matter of Dee stamps, AALL and Create’s Infinarly die set, and AALL and Create’s Mad Scientist ephemera.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using AALL & Create Chain Framed A7 Clear Stamp and AALL & Create Numero Uno A8 Clear Stamps on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology MACHINERY HEADS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology STITCHED SCRAPS Embellishments.

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!
