Tim's Tags - 1

 Here is my attempt at the first tag. It is very different as I am just using what I have (as per Tim's instructions) which includes a sizzix embossing folder, distress inks, flowers from prima, brads, distressed ink lacy ribbon. I punched some small holly leaves using a tonic punch and added them with some tiny bling around my lovely stampotique snow lady's head and on the page.
I liberally coated her in distress stickles for a glittery look. The glitter (not sticking very well to the letters) is Martha Stewart.
I don't have the banner (or any of the other dies) so I just tore a piece of craft resist and cut the banner edges and used picket fence and broken china distress. The fir type leaves are just a piece of card which I cut into a fringe. The pearl brads and red bling were in my box.
 I like the effect. Note I embossed the wrong side of the folder and used lots of picket fence distress stain but decided I preferred the look of that side of the tag.. The falala was the closest Christmas greeting I had (sizzix die). I just enjoyed the process and thinking about how to create something inspired by the tag.


  1. Love it! That stamped snow lady is gorgeous - the stickles works really well. It's lovely to see such a variety of interpretations amongst our crafting community! Look forward to seeing your next ones! JulieD

  2. This is such fun and it made me smile! I think it is great if the tags get us all thinking and creating and that is more important than doing exactly the same as his,
