Natasha was inspired by Tim Holtz Christmas Layers Botanical ephemera and paired the images with a Holiday Words Background stamp. She added texture to the tag background using patterned paper and a Mini Lumber Embossing Folder. She completed the tag with a paper doll, a sentiment, and a few splatters!
Andrea made a tiny tag using Waffle Flower’s Ink Pad Swatching Dies and Tim Holtz’s Specimen Dies. She used Carabelle Studio’s Chromatique Grunge Stamp Set for the circle design and also included a Tim Holtz Snippets Number Strip.
Anna-Karin made a Christmas wreath tag using Tim Holtz’s Department Store stamp set. The title and snowflakes were die cut with Tim’s Twig & Stump set and the brown board was embossed in the Tree Rings folder.
Barbara is a huge fan of tags! She created two Christmas tags by mixing Stamps, dies, and stencils. She used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Winter Watercolor 2, Scribble Woodland and Mini stencil set 38 ( Falling Stars), Tim Holtz Sizzix Twig and Stamp, and Framed Tags. She added a touch of sparkle with Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Distress Snowfall Holiday Grit Paste and Rock Candy Crystal Clear Glitter.
Cheiron created some customized initial gift tags using a bunch of Tim Holtz Sizzix dies, including Twig and Stump, Framed Tags and Alphanumeric Varsity. She cut the tags and inked them with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, added the snowmen and also letters cut from felt. She cut the snowflakes from White Glitter Paper for a little extra shine.
Emma created various sized gift tags and also decorated a square vignette box that she can store the tags in. She used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Framed Tags and Vintage Labels Thinlits Dies to create the tags and embellished them with various idea-ology pieces, including Christmas Wreath and a tiny book that she made using a cover from the Memoir Ephemera pack.
Kath has been having fun making tags to decorate her Christmas parcels. She used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Framed Tags Thinlits, Idea-ology Christmas Layers Botanical, Christmas Sticker Book and Tim/Holtz Stampers Anonymous Christmas Element Stencils with Distress Grit Paste, Distress Snowfall Grit Paste and Distress Rock Candy Glitter to decorate the tags.
Macarena keeps with her purple addiction lately and made a vibrant tag mixing Tim Holtz Distress Oxide DUSTY CONCORD with KITSCH FLAMINGO and a contrasting SALVAGED PATINA ink. She heat embossed the image from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous INVENTOR 3 and added a SNARKY SMALL TALK sticker.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps MODERN CHRISTMAS on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix GEO CHRISTMAS Thinlits Dies and Prima Marketing MISTLETOE LOVE Candy Cane Lane Flowers.
