Estelle created an interactive frame about a little girl who turn on the TV to watch a cartoon. She used a Tim Holtz Retro TV Die, a Lawn Fawn magic Picture Changer Die Set, a Lawn Fawn Car Critters and  Lawn Fawn Den-Sweet-Den Clear Stamp Sets. For the little girl she used a Tim Holtz Baseboard Doll colored with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons and added some Ideology Flairs to finish.

Anna-Karin‘s favorite means of transportation is to walk and she did an art journal page about walking. She used Tim Holtz Sideshow stamp set, together with Simon Says Stamp Solid Grid Background and Crackle Background.

Barbara chose Wacky Transport #1 Thinslits Die by Tim Holtz Sizzix to create a pair of tags. She also used Inquisitive stamp set and Metropolis Stencil by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Ranger Ink Opaque Distress Grit Paste, Idea-ology Gauge Frames Embellishments.

Cheiron would love to transport herself to Paris. She used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cityscape stamps along with a Distress Watercolor background. She added images from the Field Notes, Documented and Stamp Collector sets to add lots of stamped layers to her card panel. She finished her card with a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker.

Kath made a set of whimsical cards using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wacky Transport Thinlits, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bubble and Stars Mini Layering Stencils and Simon Says Talk Bubbles Stencil

Lols made a 60th birthday card using a Tim Holtz Wacky Transport Die Set. For the background she used a Simon says Stamp Birch Column Die and a Carabelle Studio Constellation Stencil. Two Christmas Paper Dolls are waiting to board at the bus stop.

Macarena made a masculine card with a retro bicycle from Stamperia Voyages Fantastiques paper collection. She also used Tim Holtz Script stencil for the background and Memory Box Ringadings 3D embossing folder for a patina panel.

Maura took a whimsical journey into outer space in her art journal. She used Studio Light’s Art by Marlene Out of this World die cut elements, a Moon Mask from Tim Holtz, and some of the Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Paper Sea World Paper on the background and decorated it with Ranger Dina Wakley Media Speak Out Chipborad Shapes and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quote Bands Findings.

Sandra was inspired by insects and what they all transport on a daily bases, so she used the Specimen stamp set along with Distress Oxide Spray Speckled EggWalnut Stain and Distress Spray Stain Ground Espresso for the background. 

Zoey interpreted the theme with using wings as “transport” (here’s the video tutorial)- she used Tim Holtz Distress Paint with a splash of Distress Oxide Spray Hickory Smoke. To add some shine to the wings, she used Tsukineko Versamark EMBOSS CUBE Watermark Stamp Ink Pad + Judikins STICKY STUFF EMBOSSING POWDER + Cosmic Shimmer SUMMER MEADOW Gilding Flakes. She then added a layer of Distress Crackle Paint to finish it.

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!
