Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas-Day 6

Here is my take on Tim Holtz Tag 6 design. I had to draw and cut my trees and deer from grungepaper because I didn't have either of the dies but I can always count on my printer and computer to help me out with this. I do like to make my tags look close to his that is what I enjoy most is using what I have to make something close to what he did. Again, I didn't have a lot of the products that he used but I think my tag turned out pretty nice.
Instead of using the embossing folder technique that Tim shows on his blog (I will be trying it as soon as I find a folder that will work) I used a filligree stamp and gold embossing powder for my background and then did the inking using Broken China and Frayed Burlap. I inked my trees with Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint. I added some green stickles to the left side of the trees. My deer is done in Faded Jeansand the antlers are inked with Vintage Photo. Graphic 45 paper tape is the trim I placed at the bottom of my tag along with the Season Greetings that was embossed with Distressed Red embossing paper. I added some brads, metals and ribbons to finish my tags. Can't wait to get the other 6 done.

I always like to add the supplies that Tim Holtz used on his blog in case you want to make one like his. supplies: (ranger) craft sheet, distress ink/weathered wood/tumbled glass/forest moss/vintage photo/walnut stain/fired brick/frayed burlap, paint dabbers/gold/aqua, super fine detail clear powder, heat tool, mini mister, glossy accents, #8 tags; (idea-ology) word sticks, adornments, tissue tape/symphony, mini fasteners, grungeboard, trimmings, journaling tickets, jump rings, sanding grip; (sizzix alterations) texture fades/tall pines/snow flurries, reindeer flight/branch tree bigz dies, vagabond; (stampers anonymous) fabulous flourish stamps, mini holidays 2 stamps, speckle stamp; (tonic) scissors, paper distresser, craft knife; pine, ribbon, foam tape

  1. Pam I love this tag. I need to learn how to make some tags. Especially how to use (or put on) the metal thing hanging from your ribbon. Love it!
