It’s Monica’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)
Monica made a card with Lawn Fawn Baked with love and Sprinkled With Joy clear stamp sets along with the Stinkin’ Cute Set to make the heart garland. She covered the center of the biscuits with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops, to give the jam a glossy effect, and added a wooden shelf to host all the elements. As a last touch she added a few Simon Moonshine Sequins for sparkle.
Andrea wishes you could order up a cup of crafty inspiration whenever the creative well runs dry! She made a card reflecting that hope using Papertrey Ink’s Brew to Go die set, Prima Gouache paint, and Vicki Boutin’s Color Study paper.
Anna-Karin created three lollipops using Simon Says Stamp Mix and Match Circles stamp set. The bright background was done with Simon Says Stamp Twirling embossing folder and colored with Distress Watercolor Pencils.
Barbara chose an Etcetera Tag for her project inspired by Alice in Wonderland (freely inspired!). She used three dies by Tim Holtz Sizzix: Papercut Cafe, Tailored, Celebrate Colorize Thinlits Dies. Alice is an Idea-Ology Paper Doll painted with a mix of Alcohol Inks, Monsoon and Patina. In the background, you can spy Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layering Stencil Harlequin together with Ranger Ink Distress Grit Paste Translucent, Embossing Glaze Antique Linen and Speckled Egg.
Cheiron created a tea themed wall hanging using the Tim Holtz Papercut Cafe dies. She created her background with Distress Spray Stain in Spun Sugar. She painted each cup with a different pattern using Distress Paints and added a sentiment created with the new Alphanumeric Bulletin letters and a tiny heart from the Stacked Hearts dies.
Emma created a tag using a mix up of Sizzix dies from Tim Holtz including Bunny Games, Papercut Cafe, Layered Plaid and Framed Tags. Her stacked teacups were coloured with Distress Inks before adding Distress Glaze over the top to create an enamelled effect and she finished her project with the “Perfection” stamp from the Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Eccentric stamp set.
Kath made a trio of cards to celebrate CAKE, her favourite food group using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and stencils to create the backgrounds and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Celebrate Colorize, Brushstroke Flowers Mini and Alphanumeric Bulletin, Bold and Tiny Type Lower Thinlits to decorate.
Lols made a card using a new Tim Holtz Papercuts Cafe Die Set. She blended Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink onto the die cut pieces. For the background she used Tim Holtz Splatters, Dot Fade and Mini Set 5 Stencils. She finished with some machine stitching and a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Coffee and Tea Clear Stamp Set.
Meihsia was inspired to create a hello card using Stamperia KLIMT 6×6 Paper on the background, and decorated it with the beer image from Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps BEER BLUEPRINT and the sentiment from CZ Design Wafer Dies BASIC TRIO.
Zoey used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Splatters to add texture to her tag’s background. She then used Ground Espresso Distress Oxide , Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap to add color. From an used coffee filter she die cut the feathers using Feathery Thinlits
