Well, it happens every year; we get to the last tag and he blows it right out of the water! Wow, what a tag he made for the final day of this creative holiday journey we have been on! So many cool techniques and products used on this one. Lovin' that new tissue paper!!! Gotta get me some more of that.
I was on a roll yesterday and finished up all of the tags so now have to get them posted. Yahoo is being a bear and won't let me add pics to the albums in the ATT group or the OWSE group. I have been trying every day this week, so yesterday I decided to leave the computer alone and get the rest of them made. This was a really easy one and I was so amazed how easily the image transferred.

I loved making this one so much, that I made a second one for my good friend and co-worker, Nancy. I was going to take her Christmas gift to work and decided I could add this tag to the top of it as I had already mailed her card out. I used a new Penny Black , I think, background stamp I recently bought for it. Love this stamp but it's very hard to see here. I really liked the lamp-post that Ted used on his tag, so I went with that as well and added a jingle bell to it after glitzing it up. I love how the glossy accents addition to the letters makes them look. What a transformation! I will be doing that over and over again. Thanks Tim!!! Well, it was a hit with Nancy and when she came to work today, she said her husband looooved the tag! He told her, she can't throw that away. LOL As if.....

I really love this tag. It is so subtle and yet looks so detailed and deep witht that ghost stamping technique. Very cool results. I had to include the angel on my tag as I think it is just beautiful! This is one of my favorite sets of Tim's stamps. love the alcohol inks on glassine paper also. I had not tried that before today. I am kind of surprised that I caould go right to my pack of glassine paper at all! Usually most of my time is spent digging for the supplies.
i am finally getting this one uploaded. I have to say, I was NOT impressed with this tag as I was making it. Was actually thinking it was headed towards the trash. That is until I burnished off some of the paint and then inked and embossed. Wow! What a difference that made! Very cool technique, thanks Tim!

This one was pretty hard for me like many others, but I finished it anyway. Several spots are blurry. I didn't make a wreath, as I really loved the stains and crackle paint grunge-board from day 4, I made an ornament the same way an the numbers 25. i haven't even gone and looked at today's yet and have to go to my grandson's Christmas program real soon so back to catch up tomorrow. LOL
I really loved this tag for day 4! Love, love, love the crackled paint, distress stain baked grungeboard! Gonna do this again and again! Thanks Tim! Love the glossy accents in the cut out 25 also. Very cool results! Since I cannot throw anything away, I have tons of the clear plastic packaging to use also. My friends used to make fun of me for keeping it as I kept it before anyone was doing anything with it. LOL
Wow, I have never really liked this technique before, but after following it better and really concentrating, I got a stamp pad made and it works! i think the embossing really adds a lot to it. Loved the curling tip from Tim and the bell really makes it cute!

Yeah, it's finally here! The tags Tim Holtz shares with us every year for a twelve day learning journey of holiday fun has arrived at last! I am already a day behind but I have yesterday's tag done and am going into my studio to start today's after this post. i pretty much followed the instructions to a tee today but I had so much fun making the pine-cones that I made extras and added them all. I just used some loose pearl beads for my baubles and cut my Noel die cut from glitter cardstock so no messy hands here. LOL
