Megumi made a shaker card using Tim Holtz Happy Hour die Snarky Cat Stamp set and glass beads colored with  Alcohol ink. I stamped Snarky Cat onto a shrink plastic sheet with StazOn Pigment Piano Black, shrunk with a heat tool and colored with Distress Crayons, and popped them in a shaker glass or used them for decoration.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page about pears using the Stamper’s Anonymous Classics #16 set. The pears were watercolored with Distress Ink and the table cloth was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Solid Grid Background.

Barbara was inspired by Tim Holtz Sizzix Cafe Colorize Thinlits Dies creating a couple of tags! She used for her backgrounds two stamps sets by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous: Floral Outline and Lumberjack. The New Ranger Distress Prize Ribbon mixed with Speckled Egg and Tumbled Glass is her color choice!

Cheiron created a card with a cocktail to start your week off right. She used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cocktail Blueprints stamps. She created a background out of (and colored the image) in with Distress Inks. She sprayed Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Spray onto Distress Kraft Heavystock to create her background and finished the card with a Salt Rim made of Star Dust Stickles.

Emma created a tag using the latest member of the Distress colour family, Prize Ribbon, combined with Ground Espresso to create the background for her tag inspired by café society in Paris. She used the Bubbling Thinlits die to create a textural background and added the Cafe Colorize tea cup and Alphanumeric Bold lettering to bring her tag to life.

Kath is celebrating Prize Ribbon, the most glorious of blues, the latest colour to join the Tim Holtz Distress Family and in the UK, they celebrate everything with a nice cup of tea. She decorated a Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous #8 Etcetera Tag using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Vines and Roses, Sizzix Café Colorize and Alphanumeric Label and Classic Lower Thinlits.

Macarena gave a second life to the strawberry boxes she stored this summer. She adorned them with Prima Marketing moulds: Leafy Blossoms and Hollybrook Ironwork and glued them with Ranger Collage Medium. She used Distress Paints: Pumice stone, Tumbled Glass and Ground Espresso.

Maura enjoys afternoon tea now and again, and made a tea card using Darkroom Door’s Teacups stamp and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Observations set for her proper British gentleman, all on a Simon Says Stamp Slimline card.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Die-Ology Backdrops Vallume 1 on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Freshly Brewed Blueprint and Tim Holtz Keepsakes Ephemera.

Sandra made a fun colorful card using the Oddball Alice in Wonderland stamp that she colored with Distress Ink and Distress Reinkers
