Jess has created a snarky tag, using Ink Road Stamps and Found Relatives, that will make you want to transport yourself and your girlfriends to far away places!

Andrea made some paper-scrap cards with matching envelopes to transport them in.  She used Simon Says Stamp’s Gift Card Envelope die, Stamperia’s Wonderland paper, and the We R Memory Keepers Typewriter.

Anna-Karin made a peaceful art journal page this week, on a double page spread in her Dina Wakley Media Journal. She used the new SSS Your Light stamps, from the Rest and Refresh release.

Barbara chooses the car to imagine a trip around the world! She used to create her project Tim Holtz Idea-ology Mini Clipboard StructuresTim Holtz Sizzix LumberRanger Alcohol inksTim Holtz stencil Tiles and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Found Relatives.

Cheiron created a card to transport her away from the summer heat and into a cool breeze using the fan stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Inventor 8 set on a background created with Distress Oxide Sprays along with paper from the Metallic Confections Craft Stock Paper Pad. 

Emma is transporting you with a time travelling adventure and created an Etcetera tag using The Professor stamp set by Tim Holtz and the Voltage Die to tell the story of this gentleman, who is taking a step back in time.

Kath created a card which would be perfect if you have family or friends who are car fanatics/motorheads using Distress Oxide Sprays from the new release, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Vintage Auto, Hex Gradient and Patchwork Circles Mini Layering Stencils with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Steampunk Parts BigZ die and Idea-ology Found Relatives.

Macarena built up her own transport using Prima Marketing Cogs and Wings and Mechanica Moulds. She gave the canvas panel a nice texture with Visible Image Count Me In and Geometric Maze stencils. 

Maura imagined herself back in Paris on a Vespa (not that she’s ever been on a Vespa, sigh…) in her Dina Wakley Media Journal. She used Stamping Bella’s Uptown Girl Vienna and her Vespa stamp, the Simon Says Stamp Yupo paper and Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearl inks. 

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Travel Ways and decorated it with Idea-Ology Quote Token

Sandra was inspired by the Professor stamp set to make him into Professor Gadget, she colored him in with Distress Markers and made his eyes pop with Glossy Accents.

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!

Jess has created a Tim Holtz vignette box, using Ranger’s crackle texture paste and Oxide Sprays, that is sure to have you dreaming of faraway places. 

Andrea made a travel journal out of a Dylusions Creative Dyary, American Crafts Gouache Paint (set 1), and some fabulous house stamps from AALL and Create: #191, #192, and #193.

Anna-Karin was inspired by the poppy flowers she can see from her window, to create a vacation-themed art journal page. She used the pretty Poppy Stamps Garden Poppy Sidekick Frame and Stencil, and colored the frame with Dina Wakley’s Scribble Sticks.

For Barbara, the sea is certainly the favorite theme during the summer holiday season! She has created a mixed media tag with Tim Holtz Stencil SplashTim Holtz Stampers Anonymus Rubber Stamp Coral,Tim Holtz Sizzix Holiday Greens Mini,Ranger Ink Texture paste Transparent GlossTim Holtz Sizzix Seashells.  

Cheiron is ready to head to London at the end of the week and she created a colorful card to celebrate. She used Stampers Anonymous Citiscapes, The Professor, Noble Gent, Ticket Booth, and Nature’s Path over her stenciled background. She finished her card with a Ticket cut with the Ticket Booth dies and an Idea-ology Numeric number. 

Emma was inspired by a vintage photo and created a layout to ‘Remember The Now‘. She used an image from Tim Holtz’s Found Relatives set and surrounded it with an arrangement of Seashells and a Tropical bloom all resting on a bed of Art Stones.

Kath created a Vintage Traveller’s Notebook used perhaps by a Victorian Gentleman, one of the early pioneers of aviation using Tim Holtz French Industrial Paper Stash, Sizzix Destination and Alphanumeric One Inch Tall Thinlits and Idea-ology Snippets and Expedition Ephemera and Chatter Design Tape

Macarena made a cute nautical card since vacation for her is always seaside. She used sweet Alexandra Renke Two Jellyfishes dies for the bottom background and applied randomly Ranger Sea Mixed Media Powder. The boat got its vibrant red with Tim Holtz Distress Candied Apple spray. 

Maura thinks of books when she hears vacation, so she decided to make a couple this week. She used the Emerald Creek Spiced Market embossing powders, Simon Says Stamp Debra stencil, and Daniel Smith watercolors like Perinone Orange and Phthalo Turquoise

Meihsia was inspired to create a cork texture postcard using Craft’s Companion Cork Craft Material Pack and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Tiny Travel Globe Thinlits Dies

Sandra made an Ancient Greece inspired card using the Fairy Garden and Hollybrook Ironwork Moulds with lots of Opal Magic paint and the Waves stamp of the new Simon Says Rest and Refresh release
