Tim Holtz Day 9


Tim Holtz did it again! Day 9 of his 12 Days of Tags is demonstrating his Texture Hammer. What a neat tool!

For my tag I stamped Santa in black soot, the tree in peeled paint. I masked Santa to get the music note in there. I then colored the backgroound in peeled paint and fired bring. I don't have the hammer so not mush texture here. I used typewriter keys for the number 25.

Tim Holtz Day 7


Tim Holtz and his embossing powder! He sure does use this a lot! I wonder if his floor is as gritty as mine from spilling it? Anyway Day 7 of tags he used a lot of embossing powder.

This one was fun and easy to do. I used the shabby shutters on the background and then ep with vintage photo on top. I looks so awesome! I used the NOEL stamp I have with different colors stamped on it! My corner piece I embossed with some gold embossing powder. So easy for this one!

Tim Holtz Day 6 of Tags


Tim Holtz today was misting in Day 6 of tags!!

For me this was a challenge. I don't have a lot of re inkers so I went with vintage photo for the background with perfect pearls gold. I used a chipboard embellishment for the background rather then vinyl. The Merry Christmas is kinda dark to see. I added the buttons for a little bit extra! There you have my Tim Holtz Tag!!

Tim Holtz Day 5


Tim Holtz did it again! Day 5 of his 12 Days of Tags is marvelous!

I didn't have any glossy paper so mine a a little different. I used reg card stock with the alcohol inks and some silver krylon because I also don't have the mixitives! :( Anyway I just blended the alcohol ink on the cs with the blending solution and stamped my Xmas tree in pine needles. I used a rub on for the words and some stickles on the tree. I did manage to find some snowflakes that are metal and just dabbed some paint on it with a lil stickles. And there you have it a Tim Holtz style Tag!!

Tim Holtz Day 2


Here is my Day 2 Tag! Tims Day 2 Tag is sooo much better! Can you believe I don't have a decent Snowman stamp. For this tag I stamped a snowflake in the background and used white embossing powder. I then used faded jeans and broken china distress inks sprayed by water. After completely dry I stamped Noel in black paint and smeared some stickles all over the tag. Next I glued on some bling and used a couple snowflake brads. I glued on the ribbon and more bling! Voila!

Another Santa Tag Tim Holtz style! LOL!

For the second Tag of Christmas,
My T!m he made for me
One Blue snowman,
And a distressed crackled Santa.

Tim Holtz Day 1



Here is my attempt at what Tim Holtz did for Day 1 of Tags!

I used a different Santa Stamp as you can see! No Crackle paint either. I colored the background with distress inks and a make up wedge. Then stamped Santa, masked him and stamped the Christmas definition both with black soot.

I glued on some old music note paper and colored the wood "S" with distress ink. I used a snow flake brad and a believe charm that I wrapped wire around. Stuck on the ribbon and Viola!

Santa Tag Tim Holtz Style! (kinda)

For the first Tag of Christmas,
My T!m he made for me
A distressed crackled Santa.
