My Take on Tags 1-3 of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas!!!!

Today I thoughto participate in the 12 Tags of Christmas that Tim Holtz is doing on his blog. I have to use my creativity to the max since I don't have all of the products that he is using and I think they have turned out pretty well so far.
Here is my interpretation of Tag One, I made my little pearl bling by using some of the jewelry beads that I had in my stash along with silk flowers that I found. I added a Bo Bunny Father Christmas to one of the Tim Holtz stick pins. Instead of using Tim's new pinecone die which definitely is beautiful I used my McGill punches to make my pinecones since that is the one I have and it definitely makes beautiful pinecones.
Tag 2 was quite fun to make, I have net I would try to get at least the first 3 tags I made. I am trying ver used canvas like this so I was glad to try the technique along with using the Distress Stains. I didn't have the Holiday Christmas paper pad so I used a Hero Arts Stamp to make my music background and a Hero Arts Merry Christmas stamp and embossed to get my sentiment on it. Also, I didn't have the deer or the snowman die so what I did was stamp my Tim Holtz Snowman stamp and then fussy cut it out of grunge paper, glued the canvas to the top and cut it again after I had applied it to the the grunge paper. I still think it turned out pretty cute but to see Mr. Tim's tag just hit the link and it will take you there.
Tag 3 was suppose to do with a foam pad and distress ink refills, well needless to say I didn't have either but I did have the embossing folder so with some manipulation I got my image on and just ran the Tim Holtz Distress stains over the top. Again I didn't have the die he used so I made a Poinsettia using my McGill punch along with stickers from the Bo Bunny Father Sticker sheet to add the flourishes like he had on his tag.
I sure hope you enjoyed my tags today but make sure to stop by Tim Holtz site by going to the link, seeing his tags and trying some of the techniques that Mr. Tim uses.
