Wanda has created a 50th wedding anniversary card using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix 3d embossing folder Elegant; Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Die Sets BoutiqueWorld Travel, and Matchbox; Distress Mica Sprays and Inks; Distress Watercolor Paper; Simon Says Stamp Luxe Glitter Classic Cardstock Gold; and This Calls For Confetti Glazed Cherry Sequin Confetti

Andrea made a tag using Tim Holtz’s Backdrops, Vol. 4 paper and AALL & Create’s Heartnook die set. She also added some texture with Tim Holtz’s Floral Linen Tape.

Anna-Karin made a card with faceted hearts. The hearts were die cut with Tim Holtz Vault Rosettes set, from paper colored with Paper Artsy Infusions Colored Stains. The background was dry embossed in Simon Says Stamp Spun Glass embossing folder.

Barbara created a rainbow tag using the Tim Holtz Arch Brush stencil in the background along with Ranger Distress Ink Pads, Texture Paste Transulcent and Distress Rock Candy Crystal Clear Glitter. In the center the couple with the heart balloon is cut with the Sizzix The Park Thinlits Dies and the sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous from the Love Notes set.

Cheiron created an anniversary card using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Abstract Florals stamps and embossed them with Ranger Gold Embossing powder. She cut them out with the Simon Says Stamp coordinating wafer dies. She added them to a background panel cut with the Detail Mandala Plate and added a splatter of Gilded Foundry Wax.

Emma felt the love in the air with this challenge theme and she created a mini Etcetera Tag. She used Sizzix dies from Tim Holtz including the Vault Funky Floral Wreath to frame a Tim Holtz idea-ology Photomatic image and the alphabet from the World Travel die set to make up the letters, LOVE before adding a Vintage Clip altered with Foundry Waxes, to complete the piece.

Kath made a trio of “love themed” cards using Tim Holtz/Sizzix True Love Colorize Thinlits, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Layering Stencil Set 59, Forgotten Garden and Love Notes, Simon Says Stamp Forgotten Garden and Love Shadow dies.

Macarena made a Love U tag using two 3D hearts from Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Rosettes dies and Framed Tags die for the base. She added a bunch of dots left from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Layered Dots die.

Maura created an interactive envelope card, using Graphic 45’s Mon Amour papers, Tim Holtz’s Abstract Florals stamps, and Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Mocha and Cheeky inks.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Roseland 8×8 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER DOLLS MINI and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps Curiosity.

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!
