Susanne has made this tag with these cute little girls from Tim Holtz Paperdolls Groups, Faded types stamps, Countdown dies. She has stitched around the edges on the background tag and also on the Stencil card, with her sewing machine.
Anna-Karin made a tag with messy machine stitching on a canvas background. She also stitched buttons to the tag. The leaves were die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Tender Leaves set and the title with Big Scripty Hugs.
Barbara created a mini tag album using stitches to link the tags. She used two Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies: Ghost Town 2 – Toil and Trouble, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bold Frights – Tangled Webs, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Moon Mask Stencil, Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Distress Holiday Mica Stain Set 1.
Cheiron created a fall mixed media tag using one of her all-time fall favorite Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Autumn stencil. She applied Distress Matte Texture Paste through the stencil and sprayed the tag with Distress Spray stains. She added some contrast stitching and a Photobooth photo, some Clippings stickers and a few leaf elements from the Sizzix Funky Foliage dies.
Emma used products from Tim Holtz’s recent Halloween 2021 idea-ology release, and created a framed panel with the addition of Web Trims to the top and bottom of the frame. She showed some stitching around the torn and tattered edges of the Halloween Backdrops paper that frames her Ephemera Layer, Paper Dolls which are surrounded by Bubbles and Toadstools.
Kath used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flurries Layering Stencil, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tall Pines and Scribbly Snowflakes Thinlits, Distress Mica Stains and Snowfall Grit Paste to create this winter card and added gold thread stitching accents to the snowflakes and bottom of the card.
Maura added faux stitching in her art journal with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stitches set. She was reminiscing about a recent trip to the lake with her sisters. They drank lots of coffee while chatting, so the new STAMPtember Drink Coffee set was perfect.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Paper House of Roses and decorated it with Stamperia Sir Vagabond Gears and Clocks Grayboard, and added the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Sunshine and Rainbows.
Zoey made a mini book for her Tim Holtz Sizzix Matchbox by using Tim Holtz Sizzix Funky Nordic Thinlits Dies. She also used the Seasonal Mica Spray SET 1 + SET 2 with Rustic Wilderness (Oxide, Inks, Spray). Over the Funky Nordic she used Frosted Crystal.
