Catching up - Tim's 12 tags

Day 3
I'm trying to catch up with Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas. He shares so many wonderful techniques, like the tag above.  I don't have all the supplies he uses in hos projects so have made substitutions, which I think is a good thing as it makes me dig out things that haven't been used for a while like the the background stamp I used in day 3's tag.

Day 4

For Day 4's tag I used the carved ornaments 2 die as I don't have the snowman die or the snowflake on-the-edge die so used the icicle embossing folder.  I'm really pleased with the way this one turned out. 
Day 5
This one is a fairly simple tag, but I love the mirror text stamp and the archival ink stamping on alcohol ink technique.  Added embossed snowflakes to the bottom with a bit of bling.

I spent most of my weekend working on an explosion box card commissioned by a work colleague - this is the first one I've ever done - I really hate to have to measure anything and wasted so many sheets of cardstock.  I'm really happy with how it turned out and have to thank fellow ATT members for the inspiration and the instructions on how to create the rosette snowman.

Yvonne your tags are wonderful and how cute is that snowman! Your box looks amazing. I have only accomplished two tags so far so I need to get moving. You are inspiration.
