Debbie’s favorite color is red paired with all of the colors of Fall. She dressed Tim Holtz’s Arthur Colorize in his favorite top hat from The Gent Die Set surrounded with Distress Ink colored fall foliage. For the background she used Distress Glaze through a Tim Holtz Autumn Layering Stencil and finished with some machine stitching.
Andrea’s favorite color is Robin Egg’s Blue and any of its lighter or darker variations (and a close second will always be hot pink)! She used Tim Holtz’s Salvaged Patina paint for her notebook cover, along with Studio Light’s Art by Marlene Alphabet Dies. She also utilized Dina Wakley’s Collage Sparks, Collection 1 for the background.
Anna-Karin cannot pick a favorite color, but she does love turquoise and made a birthday card this week with different shades of teal and turquoise. The numbers were done with the Simon Says Stamp Layered Numbers Stencil set and three shades of Distress Ink. The lines were stamped with Simon Says Stamp Ledger Paper Background and Archival Ink Shadow Grey.
Barbara loves any kind of turquoise and green! She prepared an autumn/Halloween card with an unusual pumpkin, Edison Colorize Thinlits dies by Sizzix for Tim Holtz is the perfect die for this card! For the background, she chose the set of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Sketchy Leaves and the Layering Stencil Fractured. The sentiment Boo! is cut with Bold Text Halloween by Tim Holtz Sizzix.
Cheiron can’t pick just one favorite color, but she is loving all the non-traditional fall color decor that is out in stores this year! She created a card using the Simon Says Stamp Artsy Pumpkins stamps and dies. She combined it with the Nested Domed Arches and Arched French Doors. She the pumpkins and doors onto a panel embossed with the Vines Embossing Folder.
Emma was always going to choose blue as her favourite colour and used Tim Holtz Juniper Berry and Frozen Fog Mica Stains to create a background for her Etcetera Panel. She combined this with Tim’s Christmas 2023 idea-ology products, including baubles, the poinsettias and photo from the Christmas Layers and Paper Dolls and tiny books made using covers in the Christmas Ephemera Pack.
Kath struggled with this question, so hard for a lover of the Distress palette but she decided to go with RED, definitely a favourite. She created backgrounds with Tim Holtz/Ranger Yuletide Distress Mica Stain and Barn Door Distress Spray Stain, Stampers Anonymous Composition + Lined, Halftone + Rings, Tiny Poinsettia Mini Layering Stencil from Set 54 and Texture Paste Sparkle and die-cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Holiday Blocks Thinlits to make a trio of retro modern cards.
Macarena‘s favorite color is definitely purple and all its shades. She loves its depth and kind of magic. She used a mix of Tim Holtz Distress Mica Fortune Teller Stain and Oxide Ink Pad Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves. For the main element she chose Tim Holtz Sizzix Lovestruck Colorize.
Maura loves green and it’s been her favorite color since she was a little girl. She made a green tag using the Studio Light Fantasy Tag, Studio Light Paper Elements Die Cut Block, and added green with Dina Wakley Evergreen Acrylic Paint, and Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Fairway ink.
Meihsia was inspired to create a pink mixed media tag using Stamperia ORCHIDS AND CATS 12×12 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER DOLLS PORTRAITS and Prima Marketing Floral Song Spring Abstract Flowers.
Zoey choose Red and Green as favorite! She used a variety of Tim Holtz Ideaology Ephemera mixed with Tim Holtz Sizzix Artsy Leaves. She used Distress Ink and Tim Holtz Distress Snowfall Grit Paste to add color and texture and this cute Paper Doll as main focus.
