t!m's tag #12:))))))

I finally did it!!! There is a lot of details to this tag, so I'll only bore you with a I did the background like t!m..I stamped the background with a script stamp from the visual artistry collection..stampers anonymous. I then took some tissue paper..I don't have the boxed tissue paper...stamped that with the music stamp from t!m's mini christmas stamps and covered it with rock candy distress nice and sparkly!! The house is cut out from that stuff. The letters are chipboard that I brushed the edges with copper metallic paint then covered them with pewter crackle paint., then backed it with some black card stock. Now I have to tell you about my little gnome!! Isn't he just the cutest! I didn't have the porcelain doll so.....I painted his little hat added some rosy cheeks with fired brick distress ink and gave his lantern a little glow with wild honey distress ink covered with glossy accents.  I tried to do the fan fold tissue flower and didn't like the way it came out, so I did the pom pom one. Well I guess I'm cutting it a little close huh? I reached my goal!! I did all 12!!!
Did you notice my little helper in the first pic?? Isn't he cute?!? I did that to all my blending tools. They just make me happy! His little "feet" are petals from the tattered floral die...all you have to do is cut 2 petals from the large flower and you have your "feet"!
Well, it's been a blast sharing this with all of you..until next year!!!
Thank you so much t!m.....and Mario!
Thanks so much for stopping by:)))

t!m's tag #11!!!!

Posted by Picasa
A real simple tag....really have to get some glossy card stock;(( The background didn't turn out like I wanted it to. I didn't have the stamps t!m used but I do have his mini set. I used various colors of blue distress inks for the background and fired brick for the Santa. I used something that is a no-no for the "cardstock" paper. That is probably why my background didn't turn out right. Well, almost there! Will be posting my final tag soon......

t!m's tag #10!!!

Well, I'm almost there!! The technique on this one is something I really like doing in my projects....transferring! I don't know why it's not as vibrant as t!m's, but I think my charms came out pretty cool! The letters are some stickers, I just inked them and covered them with antique glossy accent...very cool looking. For the background I started with a manilla tag and sprayed it with walnut stain, then stamped it with t!m's mini Christmas stamp in music notes. I stamped the pine needles with pine needles distress ink and covered it with clear embossing powder. I then added a piece of pine...hmm...not really sure what to call twig? Well, you get the picture. I had to put some snow-tex on it...hehe. ,added some jungle bells and tulle and waaaalaaaa! I distressed some seam binding with fired brick distress ink. Well, I hope you enjoyed today's tag....Thanks for stopping by!

t!m's tag #9!!!

I love this tag!! The technique t!m used on this I know I will be using again! It comes out so cool. I think I'm going to experiment with all different color...and add some more clear embossing powder to my stash...hehe. The flowers I had in my stash. I sprayed the with Candy Apple Red glimmer mist then put some ultra thick utee on coat...makes it look like they have dew on them...really pretty. The lampost I stamped on grungepaper and embossed with black embossing powder and added some frosted lace stickles for a little "frost". The word peace are some stickers I had. I just inked them with black soot distress ink and covered them with glossy accents. The trim is from a gift I got from my secret it!
Well, thanks for taking a peek!
Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas!

t!m's tags #8!!!

Well, hello bloggers! I couldn't wait to do this tag!! I know the 12 tags are over:((( but I didn't want to post all the ones I had finished and bore you guys...hehe.
So, basically the only things I didn't have for this are the 3 guys stamp, the finger and the gear die. Oh, what the that I think about it...quite a few things I didn't have. In the long run, I think I did pretty good!
I hope you can see the details on this. I love this tag...I am a steampunk, grungy kinda

If you take a peek at the second pic...I made my own filmstrip!!! I have this teeny tiny square stamp in the shape of a square, I just stamped it on some acetate with archival ink dried it with my heat tool......then I took my splatter stamp and inked randomly over it with coffee archival ink...I was really pleased with it! If you click on the pics, hopefully you be able to see it.
I love the mom and pop images..they are from t!m's lost and found paper his paper!
Well, I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

t!m's tag #7:)))

Posted by Picasa

Hello!! This came out quite lovely, if I do say so myself!! I did the best with the holly leaves..alcohol ink and distressing. I took a little bit of mother nature (twigs) added some snow-tex and glitter and wa-la! It came out so cool! I stamped the greeting on a seperate piece of white cardstock then took the flourish stamp and stamped around it to make a frame...very pretty! Took some pearls and alcohol inked them, then glued them on some branches_Martha Stewart punch_and some tulle. Finished it off with some distressed seam binding and a t!m bauble. I love this tag...I think it's a keeper for hanging on next years tree!
Well, thanks for stoppng by!

T!m's Tags #6!!!

Hey bloggers! This one took me back to my childhood school days!! Painting outside the It's not as detailed as t!m's, but I guess it's the effort that counts right? I sort of like the way this one came out. I stamped and embossed the lampost to make it look like the tree was in some kind of magical park.....maybe Santa's front yard!! I then punched the star and inked it with wild honey distress ink, put some glossy accents on it and sprinkled it with glitter. Then, what is a Christmas tree without presents underneath! I put a little rock candy stickles on them to look like cute! Hope you can see how cool my tree came out!
Well, thanks for taking a peek! Tag # 7 coming's the link for tag 6....

T!m's Tag #5!!

I know, this is no where near what T!m did on his tag. I tried and tried.......I even tried on fragments and I just couldn't do it:(((( So, this is what I came up The closest I came to alcohol ink is my little ornament I made hanging on the tag..ha!!! I love my angel. I put some diamond stickles on her dress to make her sparkle!! I also added glossy accents to the letters to make them pop a little.
Well, thanks so much for taking a peek!

t!m's 12 tags #4!!

Posted by Picasa
This one was so much fun! On this one I took t!m's mini snowman stamp and stamped the image 3 times on grungepaper and layered them. I then painted it white and globbed rock candy crackle paint on it  and distressed it. I covered the grunge numbers with music note paper and covered them with glossy!! The snowflakes I covered with snow-tex to give them, well, texture...hehe! Then I put some glu n' seal on them and sprinkled them with glitter. Hope you can see the sparkle! Distressed a couple of buttons and added some tulle. Finished it off with some seam binding and tulle.
So here's the link for #4!

Tim's 12 Tags #1....Yay!!!

Posted by Picasa
Well, I finally did it! I know I'm a little behind but...I'm determined to catch up and do all 12 if I can. This is one of my goals before the end of the year.
With this tag I did the background technique t!m did, really liked the way it came out. I don't have the tools he uses but I'm using what I have. Makes it more interesting I think..hehe.
I cut the flourish by hand then painted it white then added crackle medium then painted it black. It came out quite cool! The pine cones are the real deal. I dipped them in snow-tex then covered them with diamond pretty and sparkly!! The ferns I punched out with the Martha Stewart punch, dipped them in the snow-tex then just layered the on a holly leaf. Now as far as the noel goes, I wish I had larger letters but I think there still cute...hehe. I inked them with gathered twigs distress stain then covered it with Glue N' Seal and pressed glitter on. They kind of have an aged glittery look.
Well, it was fun! now I have to go and work on the others! Thanks a bunch for taking a peek! Have fun with yours everyone! I'm having a blast being able to see what everyone is creating!
