Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas day 6

I love learning all the new techniques Tim comes up with!  again I don't have everything he used on his tag so I had to substitute with what I did have.  I don't have the trees embossing folder but tim gave us the snowflake and snowman folders on the cruise so used the snowman, I'd cut some of the deers while on the cruise too, thinking they'd come in handy. I can't wait until the Vagabond is released in the U.K. - really makes die cutting and embossing a breeze!  I did struggle with the stamping on the inside of the folder - couldn't seem to get enough ink in the right place so a couple of tags bit the dust until I got one I was happy with.  Don't have the tree die either but another present from Tim on the cruise was the Raven and Scaredy cat die - the branch the raven perches on also makes great antlers - just cut 2 and flip one over :)

Playing along with Tim

Day 1

Day 2

I've been playing along with Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas.  I don't always have all the products that he uses so it's a challenge to find alternatives.  Day 1 Ididn't have the house die so used the haunted house from the seasonal grungeboard, trimmed it down to fit.

Day 3

Day 3, I didn't have the tree stamp Tim used so I used another tree stamp I had in my stash and it worked quite well!
Day 4
Day 4, no prima bling swirls so made my own from a cut  apart Heidi Swapp bling frame and some flat backed pearls.  Also don't have the baubles so made my own with some pearls, headpins and beadcups.
Day 5

Day 5, I don't have the metal number so used PaperArtsy number stamps on metal, cut them out and painted/embossed.
