Estelle made a home decor piece, she painted the box with  Tim Holtz Distress Paint and  glued the Backdrop Papers using Collage Matte Medium. She embellished the box with Tim Holtz AdornmentsBaseboard Dolls, Ephemera and Bouquet Findings Flowers.

Andrea created a floral tag using Simon Says Stamp’s Fine Floral Stem Dies and a fun bird image from Tracy Evans’ Quirky Birds stamp set. She also incorporated some patterned paper from American Crafts’ April and Ivy collection.

Anna-Karin made a notebook with a vintage spring flower postcard as the focal point. The card comes from Tim Holtz Palette Ephemera pack. The cover was made from Tim’s Backdrops Vol. 4 paper and the main sentiment comes from Simon Says Stamp Laugh in Flowers.

Barbara created two spring flower tags using some new dies from Sizzix’s Vault 2 release for Tim Holtz: BoutiqueWatch Gears and Wildflowers from Vault 1. She created the background with Stampers Anonymous Stencil Brush Mark together with Ranger Distress Oxide Ink pads.

Cheiron created a mini canvas painted with Distress Paints and scribbled into with Distress Watercolor Pencils. She used scraps to cut her flowers fromthe Simon Says Stamp Bold Scandinavian Wafer Dies. She finished with a sentiment from the Plant Sentiments and added a little bright color with Dina Wakley Neon Scribble Sticks.

Emma created a Stampers Anonymous Etcetera panel. She used a combination of Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies, including Vault Wildflowers and Vault Boutique to surround the ethereal image of the young girl, which is taken from the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls Portraits pack. To complete the panel, she added idea-ology Adornment Flourishes and a quote seal.

Kath created a card to remind us that despite the crazy “can’t make up it’s mind” weather, signs of Spring are everywhere around us using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault 2 Bouquet and Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits.

Macarena made a vibrant pink background and combined it with a grungy panel. She used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Lovestruck Colorize die and Spellbinders Aster Etched dies. She also gave a touch with Tim Holtz Fragments stamp set.

Maura is not so patiently waiting for spring flowers to emerge from the snow. Also, today is the total solar eclipse in her region, so she created a night page for her flowers. She used Katkin Krafts Dance With Dahlias stamp set, Simon Says Stamp White Pigment ink, Simon Says Stamp Dazzling Clear Gems, and created her eclipse with Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Splash Rainbow pack.

Meihsia  was inspired to create a mixed media tag using   Tim Holtz Sizzix WILDFLOWER STEMS 1 Thinlits Die and Tim Holtz Sizzix FUNKY NATURE ThinlitsDies to create the spring flowers and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chip Labels.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Floral Outlines to add a focus on her background. She then used Distress Spray Stain + Distress Oxide Spray to color the flower. She also used the new Vault thinlits (Boutique for the rose and World Travel for the Alphabet.

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!
