Its that time of year again. I played along last year and I'm going to attempt to play along this year.... all dependent on my work schedule.
So, Tim Holtz is at it again, charming us with his 12 Tags of Christmas. He is off to a fantastic start. I'm a few days in posting my first tag, but I hope to catch up and post the days tag by midnite of each day.
His first tag is simply amazing.
Here's his day 1 tag: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/11/12-tags-of-christmastag-1.html
In my opinion, the point is to create the tag, but not necessarily exactly as its displayed unless you want to. I get a kick out of using whats in my stash and putting my own twist on it.
I started off by embossing a tag with the Tim Holtz Tag Die and made from the Coredinations paper using the Sizzix Snowflake folder, embossing ink and white embossing powder. I used the Storybook Cricut Cartridge and welded Noel together on Grunge Paper. I added glue and sprinkled the MS silver glitter all over it an set it to the side to dry. I created the banner from the Cricut Cartridge out of Kraft paper. I stamped with a Recollections Musical note stamp and then inked the edges with Frayed Burlap. The branches were cut with the MS branch punch from brown Coredinations paper. The leaves were cut with the MS leaf punch from Green Coredinations paper, folded down the middle and sanded. The edges were inked with the Snow Cap dauber. The ribbon was borrowed from a friend at a crop (thank you Karina). And lastly, I loved the pinecones that I stumbled upon at Michaels.
So, heres my tag:
