12 Tags of Christmas 2010 Day 8 & 9

Finally I have caught up on the Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas.

Day 8
A super masking technique. I love doing this and Tims take with Christmas was beyond fabulous! I tried to make mine very similar to his with the exception of the metal corner placements. Also I dont have the town scape on the edge die. However living in a suburb of Atlanta I thought why not use Tim's city scape stamp?

Kinda gave the tag a cool urban feel. Hey, Santa has to come to the city too!

Day 9.
Whats to say other than WOW!
Each and every day they just get better and better.

Once again I tried to make my versions a lot like Tim's but still different. I loved the colors so I kept those. Not having any of the baubles and accoutrements I had had to improvise.

No story book die led me to use pre-cut letters that I covered in rock candy stickles.

For my sisters tag I used the same adornments that Tim used.

For mine I used the wings and star which I think gives the tag a more masculine feel.


  1. These are fantastic! I just love how you used the city stamp with the masking. Very clever choice!

  2. They ara both so cute!!! Great job!!

  3. Wonderful! Oh, and I LOVE the cityscape on the bottom! Now, why didn't I think of that, LOL?

  4. Love your versions :))great idea to se the stamp too instead of the die

  11. Stephen, your tags are a wonder to behold! Gorgeous work, my friend. I love the CityScape stamp on the Santa tag, and the rosette looks fabulous! I'm so glad you were able to work the Rock Candy challenge in with your wonderful tags. Everything is better with a little Distress Stickles!
