12 tags of Christmas tag#6

Hello everyone!

Today I made tag number 6 of the 12 tags of Christmas that Tim Holtz is doing you can find him here http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/ he really creates some beautiful tags. For my tag today I used foil and my tim holtz snowflake embossing folder and then I painted the snowflakes with my paint dabbers once dry I sanded them a bit and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. My ribbon is some seam binding colored in the holiday distress ink festive berries which I pleated and then sewed on. Now the issue I had since I don't have the drill punch (have to buy that) I took one of the fragments and colored it with alcohol inks and I took the snowflake ornament and used alcohol ink on it too but I also used clear embossing powder over top of the ink. Once dry I glued the snowflake to the fragment and added a pearl to the center and added one of the large t.h. pearls. I hope that my pictures do it justice. hahaha.... I love how it turned out!!
Thank you for visiting me today!! And thank you all for the wonderful comments :)

12 tags of Christmas day #4

Hello again! Told ya I'd be back!! Now on this tag I used some tumbled glass distress stain and added some picket fence on top. Then I used the tim holtz embossing folder with the snowman. Ya ever have a moment...I starred at the tag and you really couldn't see the snowman as much as I wanted and then boom it hit me duh... I have the stamp too. So I stamped that on top :) I stamped the pine tress and then I stamped the snowflake and used white embossing powder. With a plain piece of white card stock I embossed with the snowflake folder and distressed with evergreen bough and added rhinestones to the flakes and pearls to the background.
Thanks again for stopping by!

The Twelve Tags of Christmas!!

Hi everyone!! I just want to say thank you for all the nice comments I really appreciate them, very sweet!! :) I am such a TH fan and I of course follow his blog and every year he does the 12 tags of Christmas and it is really wonderful! Anyway I thought it would be fun to join in and make a couple. So for this tag I the snowflake folder from T.H. and dry embossed my tag with versa mark ink then I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used some distress ink in the evergreen bough over that. Then I stamped over the top with the pine tree stamp also using distress ink the pine needle and twig.
