Laura made a card using a Tim Holtz Damask 3d Embossing Folder along with Salvaged Patina and Pine Needles Distress Inks and Paints and highlighted the raised areas with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint. She used Tonic Frosted Silver Cardstock for layering and to die cut the Alex Syberia Foxtrot sentiment

Andrea made a tag using words from one of her favorite sentiment stamp sets: Tim Holtz’s Theories. She combined that with other Tim Holtz products this week such as Photobooth images, Distress Watercolor Pencils (Set 2), Tag Collection dies, and the Media Marks 1 stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a matchbox and filled it with sentiments. She used Tim Holtz Vault Matchbox set to die cut the box and the cards for the sentiments. The butterfly was stamped with Tim Holtz Flutter and colored with alcohol inks.

Cheiron created a card using the new Tim Holtz Floristry stamp set which has so many great sentiments and coordinating Floristry dies from Simon Says Stamp. She stamped the image onto Audrey Blue cardstock and also stamped and cut her flowers that were embossed with Peacock Feathers Distress Embossing Glaze.

Kath created a simple card using one of the floral images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous French Garden as the focal point, coloured with Distress Watercolor Pencils. She stamped the keyboard image from Deconstructed randomly on the background and used Sign Painter to add a big and bold sentiment. 

Lols made a card using a Tim Holtz Wine Blueprints Cling Stamp Set. She colored with Distress Watercolor Pencils Set 3 and then masked the bottle and glass before using Dot Fade, Leafy and Schoolhouse Layering Stencils. She splattered with Pumice Stone Distress, Dylusions Black Marble and Lemon Zest Ink Sprays and added Snarky Small Talk Stickers, Tiny Type ’60’ Die Cuts and finished with a few Pinkfresh Studio Iridescent Color Drops.

Macarena made a whole sparkle and shine card using the lovely Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Texture Sparkle Paste on the background which gives a beautiful shine to the project. For the focal point she chose Tim Holtz Forgotten Garden stamp set and the coordinated Simon Says Stamp Forgitten Garden dies.

Maura created a card with a coffee sentiment. She used Simon Says Stamp’s Coffee Drinks stencil, Simon’s Pawsitively Saturated Mocha ink, watercolors for the background like Daniel Smith’s Permanent Orange . and topped the cups with a Prima Flowers Elegant Wings Butterfly.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chip Labels for the sentiment, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER DOLLS PORTRAITS and Prima Marketing Wild At Heart Bohemian Heart Flowers.

Zoey used Tim Holtz French Garden stamp and Tim Holtz Sign Painter to decorate her card. She used Distress Spray Stain for her background and Distress Crayons for the details. For the sentiment she used Happy Birthday from Floristry

Laura made a steampunk style card using a Stamperia 12 x 12″ Alchemy Paper Pack along with Lady Vagabond Lifestyle Die Cuts.

Andrea made a layer-rich page layout using Studio Light’s Creative Journal. She also used Dina Wakley’s Dotted Tape stencil, AALL & Create’s Majestic Borders dies, and 49 and Market’s Kaleidoscope Washi Tape Roll.

Anna-Karin made a shabby chic card with lots of layers. The card was created almost entirely with left-over bits and pieces. The circles were die cut with Simon Says Stamp Thin Frames and the title with Simon Says Stamp Scripty Hello. The leaves comes from Simon Says Stamp Tattered Leaves and Budding Branches.

Cheiron created a mixed media card with ink, stenciling and Distress Spritz layers. She used Distress Inks and then stencil over her first layer using the Tim Holtz Deco Floral and Mosaic Layering Stencils using DIstress Oxides. She added an image from the Media Marks 2 and a sentiment from the Abstract Florals stamp set. She finished her card with Distress Spritz in Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Peacock Feathers.

Kath created a collage card with lots of layers using Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Backdrops Volume 5, Large Collage Strips, Serendipity Collage Paper, Postmarked Sticker Book, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Deco Floral Mini Layering Stencil from Set 60, Abstract Florals stamp set die-cut with Simon Says Abstract Florals dies and used Simon Says Graceful Flowers and co-ordinating dies for the sentiment.

Macarena made this vintage looking card using a lovely floral paper from Tim Holtz Ideaology Halloween Backdrops and coloured the tiny leaves to add some freshness. Then she composed the main panel by embossing it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Tapestry Embossing Folder and she embellished it with Abstract Florals and ferns by Hero Arts Mushroom and Ferns.

Maura loves to read and talk about books with friends. She made a folio book to keep track of summer reading using Tim Holtz’s Folio Folders, Tim’s Idea-ology File Cards 2, Tim Holtz Collage Papers Archives, and some ink smooshing with Simon Says Stamp’s Pawsitively Saturated Ocean ink.

Meihsia  was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray Peacock Feathers Ranger on the background, and layered the embellishments with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Transparent Thinga and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Stitched Scraps Embellishments.

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!
