Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 - September

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are having a great day :) I finished my tag for Tim's 12 tags early this month!! Yay!! I will actually be going on vacation from the 22nd until around the 8th of October, so I've been trying to get all of my commitments done before I go :)


The tag this month was a huge challenge for me. I usually try to stick very close to Tim's tag, but I didn't have most of the supplies including Yupo paper (??). So, this is very different from Tim's tag, but I did follow all of his instructions and all of the supplies are Tim's, starting with the tag which was cut with his Tag and Bookplate die. I used his Distress Patina technique on the tag (and I was a little sad to cover it up!!)


Instead of Yupo paper, I used Specialty Stamping paper. I used Alcohol Ink in Cranberry and Meadow. The stamp is from Tim's Old Fashioned Christmas set. For the Alcohol Ink Resist Technique, I used a TH Splatter stencil to represent snow :) Merry Christmas is from Tim's Framelits Retro Christmas set and the snow flakes are from his Framelits Holiday Joy set. The tag was stamped from his Simple Sayings set, with a 25 Remnant Rub. To finish the tag, I used a Tag and Bookplate die on the edge, TH Film Strip, the letters for Joy from Alpha Parts Newsprint, a wish Typed Token and finally, Santa Claus is Coming to Town Small Talk stickers.

You can find all of the instructions for Tim's Tag HERE.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016
2) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
3) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes


Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a wonderful day!! Big hugs :)

  4. The colours are so beautiful Lisa! Even though you did not have all the things Tim used, you have done such an amazing job on your tag, I think the alcohol technique worked wonderfully well on the speciality paper and I love your stitched elements!

    Yupo is difficult to describe, it is very smooth (200gsm/74lb) 'paper' made from 100% polypropylene and can be used with alcohol ink, acrylic and pencils etc.

    Have a wonderful break Lisa, I too will miss your gorgeous creations! Hugs, Anne xx

  7. Ho Ho Ho. Looks wonderful. The Sept TH Tag definitely looks much harder to me so not sure if I can even come close to making one. Will see.

  10. Good for you for getting your Tim tag done early! I'll have to Google the specialty stamping paper - this is the second time I've seen/heard this term today so now I'm very curious! The other person used it for distress stains for a gorgeous look. I really like the outcome with the alcohol inks! Your tag is gorgeous! I imagine you are getting very excited about your vacation! I know I would be!
