Here is a shot of the thirteen tags from this year's Twelve Days of Christmas with the amazing Ti9m Holtz. I really had a great time making all of these and substituting for what I had on hand to recreate his techniques on each of them. He is such a wonderful teacher and so inspiring!

My take on Day #7. I didn't have the right Santa stamp so I used just a portion of this one which is actually inside a snowglobe. I didn't have the right sentiment either so had to angle mine and it didn't quite fit but it's OK. I struggled with the resist on this one. I think the key is more paint and more ink. I blotted and not rubbed to remove from the resisit areas but it's not really white like Tim's was, more of a pinkish white but still looks very cool.
Here's Day#5 tag minus Tim's pine bough stamp. I used a branch and then after embossing it, a pinecone both by Stampin'Up for mine. I didn't have any white Christmas rub-ons, so I embossed in white a greeting stamp. The background on this one is just breath-taking. I hated to cover it up!
I didn't have the same stamps but think this turned out cute with several Studio G sets used here.
