Our group got together yesterday at The Craft Shack to make Tim Holtz's last tag for 2016. It's bitter sweet because we loved the technique remix but we can't wait to see what he has in store for 2017. I pulled the instructions together & made my tag as a sample then Lisa gets all the tools & supplies including various embellishments, papers, etc ready. Everyone in the group chose what they wanted to use to put their own spin on the tag. We always look forward to getting together for a few laughs!
The 1st technique was Shadowpress from May 2014. The debossed shadow press folders & shadow press station are genius! I decided on 'TIS THE SEASON from the Christmas #1 set. It was so easy putting the embossing ink on with the mini brayer & I love how the Ranger Gold EP looks. On the tiles I used Yuletide paper, "believe" typed token with a star fastener, a snowflake with a mini brad, a "25" mini plaquettes, a Christmas word band, ephemera & a large mirror star.
The 2nd technique was Burlap from December 2015 & Punches. On the burlap I used the Nordic stencil with peeled paint spray stain. This is one of my favorite techniques...just love the texture. I don't have the punches so I used the mini holiday greens cut from different colors of kraft core cardstock & hot glued them together, I added 2 jingle brads & a bow at the top.
To finish it off I splatter white picket fence paint over the entire tag.
Thanks to Tim for another great tag! TFL!
Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!
