Andrea made a mini notebook featuring some great words and images from Seth Apter’s ES34 stamp set. She painted the background using inexpensive watercolors, acrylic paint, and Dina Wakley’s round brushes. She added some white dots using Ranger Alcohol Ink Snow Cap Mixative.
Anna-Karin made an art journal page with a home/neighborhood theme. She used the Simon Says Stamp Village stencil set to create the neighborhood and inked the houses with Distress Ink. The title letters were stamped with Tim Holtz Worn Text.
Barbara made a quick and easy couple of tags with various Tim Holtz Idea-ology pieces. For the backgrounds she used the same Layering Stencil by Tim Holz Stampers Anonymous, Flourish, along with two Ranger Ink Medium: Texture Paste Black Opaque and Crackle Paste Opaque. The sentiments from the Idea-ology Quote Chips Label pack are both enclosed in two frames from the Label Frames Pack.
Cheiron created a tag using the new Simon Says Stamp Fine Floral Stem die. She created the background of her tag with Tim Holtz Typeset Collage Paper and layered over some clear Dura Lar that she colored with Alcohol Inks. To finish her tag she added a sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Noteworthy stamps.
Emma travelled back in time to the days of the old time musicals and created a Stampers Anonymous Etcetera Panel. To bring the story to life, she layered Tim Holtz idea-ology pieces, including Baseboard Window Frames, a Paper Doll, ephemera from the Memoirs Pack and a Number Block Finding.
Macarena took the opportunity to play in her Art Journal making a colorful page using Tim Holtz Sizzix Alphanumeric Bulletin outer letters to build the background. She matched the letters and the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snapshots Volume 2 picture with the perfect sentiment from Snarky Small Talk Stickers.
Maura was inspired by a friend to pull out her old Tim Holtz Flip Frame and make a new addition with a coffee theme. She used Stamperia’s Coffee and Chocolate 8×8 papers, Stamperia’s Coffee and Chocolate Ephemera, and added some touches with Tim Holtz’s Scorched Timber Distress ink.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia SEA LAND 12×12 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology BASEBOARDS WINDOW FRAMES and Tim Holtz Idea-ology TRANSPARENT THINGS.

We have 3 artists in the Designer Spotlight for the Tie It Up Challenge!
#45 Lynn Stevens ~ Emma says Lynn’s card just made me smile wide and who doesn’t love Oliver, especially when he’s all dressed up for the Easter parade. The tiny bow on the side of the basket is the perfect finishing touch and a fabulous interpretation of our challenge theme!
#29 Mistletoe Home – Macarena says: This is absolutely beautiful! This is how I understand the less is more saying. I love the soft colors and the swing made of a piece of stick and twine. What a great idea. Really love this tag, great job, Monika.
#8 CarolG – Zoey says I love this super cute card. The way Carol added color to the hearts and the bunny is so much fun. The splatters of colors and the bold strip of paper paired with the white background is so great. Love the contrast and the little bow with the thread is top notch. Well done Carol, you captured my eye!
