Jo from Let’s Art Journal created an Art Journal page in tribute to her Aunt who has recently recovered from Breast Cancer. The page is coloured using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, White Distress Spray Stain and Hickory Smoke Distress Archival Ink and she used Tim Holtz Mini Stencil #16 and Altenew Halftone Circles Stamp Set for the background, Tim Holtz Flower Garden Stamp Set for the flowers and Kaisercraft Antiquities Sticker Book for the wording.
Andrea made a tag book meant to offer encouragement to brave women everywhere. She used Simon Says Stamps’ Circle Loops, her We R Memory Keepers Typewriter, and lots of pretty pinks like Daniel Smith’s Opera Pink, and Alcohol Ink in Flamingo and Shell Pink.
Anna-Karin made a cute tag, with an important message that everybody needs to be reminded about now and then. She used the SSS Picture Book Hugging Penguin die for the focal point. Stitched Flakes were die cut from various pink papers, and the hearts from SSS Glitter Cardstock.
Barbara began to prepare for Christmas by creating two tags with an unusual palette that has the pink as main color! She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Geo Christmas, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Festive Overlay, Tim Holtz Mini Stencil set 32, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar.
Cheiron created a retro Snowwoman card complete with pink scarf using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Mr. Snowman, Festive Things and Christmas Ribbon dies. She blended Distress Oxides in Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers and added stars using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Starry stencil (from Mini Stencil set 31) and Ranger Texture Paste.
Emma‘s card is full of hope and love and she used Tim Holtz’s Faceted Heart Die by Sizzix to create a focal point and added the word ‘HOPE’ using Tim’s Alphanumeric Classic Upper Thinlits Die. She completed the card with a stamped sentiment taken from the Nature’s Wonder stamp set.
Kath created a page in her Dylusions 8″x8″ Black Creative Journal in memory of a very dear friend using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Architecture, Gingham Layering Stencil, Idea-ology Botanical Layers and Sizzix Society BigZ XL die
Macarena made a very female and pink card using Carabelle Studio Composition Florale embossing folder for her background and Simon Says Stamp Blossoming stamp for her floral cluster.
Maura created a very pink burlap panel in honor of her Mom. She used the Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz STAMPtember 2019 set, Sizzix/Tim Holtz Robotic die set, and Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints like Taro Milk Tea.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Paper Stash Christmas and Distress Oxide Ink Pad on the background and decorated it with Prima Market Montchamp Imperial Frame.
Sandra is still in Halloween mood, so she made a pink Halloween card, she started with the Zigzag stencil and used a lot of Pink mediums, like Opal Magic Rose-Gold, Infusions Are You Cerise, Nuvo Shimmer Powder Cherry Bomb and Indian Pink Metallique Wax.
Zoey used Prima Marketing CANDY Concentrated Watercolor to color the background of this ATC that she covered with pieces of Tim Holtz Idea-ology TYPOGRAPHY Collage Paper. She then used 28 Lilac Lane CORAL Sequin Mix to add a bit of light and shine!
