Catch up Week End Tags 3 and 4

I used this week end to Catch up on my Tags that Im making inspired by the 12 Tags of Christmas by Tim Holtz.

Day 3 the technique was to make your own stamp pad and by alternating the position of the tags stamp 2 at a time. If I'm honest this isnt my favorite technique but wanting to play along the 2 tags above are my results.

I dont have the festive greenery die so I used an older poinsettia die from Sizzix embossed and inked it of course.
You were to emboss the top half of the tag with the matching embossing folder. It took me more than once to get it close. LOL....

I did however love the vintage look of the inks on the kraft tag and had some embellishments that worked perfectly :)

Day 4 however brought some techniques that I love to use and are some of my favorites.
Grungeboard, Rock Candy crackle, Distress stains, On the Edge dies all rolled into one winter tag that just pops with layers.

I went for the mono chromatic look that just says cold winter day.

Anxiously awaiting day 5 :)


  1. Looking good Stephen! I love today's tag so much. I have to play catch up myself. I have one and two done and that's it. Two is not even posted on my blog yet.

  2. Great tags. I really like the colors you used on the fourth tag.

  3. Both sets are gorgeous! I immediately thought of you when I saw Tag #3, lol! It's like Tim read your mind - a set of two in no time! :-)

  4. Congrats on being caught up! I haven't started yet, hope to tomorrow evening. Yours are so beautiful!

  5. Wonderful, both tags look out just great. It is hard work to keep up.

  6. Two more beauties, Stephen! Oh, and I can't wait to see what you do with's my favorite so far!
