Andrea gave a shiny silver look to the tree on her tag by using Simon Says Stamp’s Matte Silver Cardstock. She also used Tim Holtz’s Seasonal Scribbles Stamp Set, Watercolor Pencils, Set 3, and Dina Wakley’s Scribble Sticks.
Anna-Karin made a snowflake tag inspired by the first snowfall of the season. She used Simon Says Stamp Eliza Snowflake and Stitched Flakes dies combined with Thermo O Web Aqua and Rose Quartz foil. Tim Holtz Focus Stencil was used for the background.
Barbara created a couple of twinkly cards using Cosmic Shimmer Summer Meadow Gilding Flakes, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps sets Bottle Brush Trees – Darling – Bold Tidings Mini – Holiday Drawings, Sizzix Bold Text Christmas Thinlits Dies, Ranger Ink Uncharted Mariner Distress ink Pad.
Cheiron created the look of foil on her Alcohol Inked panel with some Nuvo Gilding Flakes. She added a CZ Design Merry Word die cut from Simon Blue Violet card stock, some greenery from the Berry Stems dies set and lots of Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals for that holiday bling.
Emma created a Christmas card full of shimmer and shine and used Prima Marketing Steampunk Metal Flakes to add foiling to the Sizzix Holiday Brushstroke 3 Thinlits Die Set by Tim Holtz. She arranged the floral display on a die cut Framed Tag which was embossed with Gold Ultra Fine Embossing Powder and completed the card with a stamped sentiment from the ChristmasTime 3 stamp set.
Kath created sparkling foil accents and sentiments on colourful Christmas cards using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Stampers Anonymous Retro Flakes and Bold Tidings 2 with Heidi Swapp Toner Ink, Ranger Small Brayer, Thermoweb Gold and Silver Fancy Foils and a laminator.
Meihsia was inspired to create a holiday card using Paper Rose CHRISTMAS FUN ROSE GOLD FOIL on the background and decorated it with Prima Marketing RUDOLPH’S NOSE Candy Cane Lane Flowers and Prima Marketing MISTLETOE LOVE Candy Cane Lane Flowers.
Zoey used Tim Holtz Sizzix Leaf Fragments Thinlits Dies to decorate the cluster in her tag. She used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Photobooth and Tim Holtz Idea-ology mummy cloth. For the background she combined Distress paint and Distress Grit paste
