It’s Megumi’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us! Good Luck with the Olympics! :-)

Megumi made a pop-up card using a Tim Holtz Harrison Die cut covered the pieces with Tim Holtz Vintage Design Tape .  She used Salvaged Patina and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain and Tim Holtz Professor 2 and Faded Type stamp sets for the background. Harrison pops up when you open the card. Please pop by Megumi’s blog to see the video.

Anna-Karin made a tag with a background created with Tim Holtz Design Tape. The house was made with Tim’s Paper Village set and the tree comes from the Funky Trees set.

Barbara used Tim Holtz Design Tape Vintage Design to create the focal point of her card together with Tim Holtz Sizzix The Gent! She completes this project with a stamp from Inquisitive set by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. She realized the background using the new Ranger Ink Distress Color, Prize Ribbon, Salvaged Patina, Cracked Pistachio, and Tim Holtz Sizzix 3D embossing folder Mechanics.

Cheiron created a mini slimline mixed media style card and used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chatter Design tape on her painted panel. She created the layers using Distress Paints, then stenciled over them using the Mini Stitches stencil from Mini Stencil Set 33 and the Plus Layering stencil. She finished her card with Media Marks 1 and 2 stamps and an Idea-ology Small Talk Sticker.

Kath has been an avid collector of Tim Holtz Design Tape for many years and had more than enough to go wild with on her trio of cards. She used Prize Ribbon Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink with Crackling Campfire Distress Ink to create the background, added strips of Design Tape, Ideaology Layers Engraving coloured with Distress Crayons and Sentiments Label Stickers.

Lols  made a card using a variety of washi tape and a Tim Holtz Snarky Cat Stamp Set. For the background she splattered with Distress Resist and spritzed with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Spray and then used a Tim Holtz Ringer Layering Stencil and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink.

Macarena made a vintage card using Simon Says Stamp Abstract Triangle Stencil for the background and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Design Tape which she stitched to get more texture. She used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Destination and Retro Type dies.

Maura made her own washi tape using Dina Wakley Sticky Back Canvas Tape , Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Observations set, and Dina Wakley paints like Ocean.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Vintage Design Tape on the background that covered with Tim Holtz Backdrops Volume 2, and added sentients using Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Chatter Design Tape.

Sandra  loves Washi Tape very much and used a lot of different AALL & Create Washi Tape in the background, for the colors she only used Infusion In The Navy and Metallique Paint Stormy Ocean

Zoey used a bunch of Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Designer Tape to add some texture to the background. She also used the tape to decorate her focal point. For the background she used the new Distress Color Prize Ribbon, mixed with Peeled paint and Seedless Preserve. For decoration, she used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil , Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps PRESSED FOLIAGE (in gold embossing) and a beautiful photo from Idea-Ology Photoboot.

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!
