This is quite sad as this is the last month for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags for 2012 but the good news is that we get to make an extra tag for the month of January 2012! So two tags. You can see Tim's original tags HERE. I have followed Tim's tags fairly rigidly, where I had the products to do so and this month I was only short a few so was a very happy bunny.
These are my tags:
On the first tag I used all the techniques that Tim used but I did not have the Idea-ology snowflake so I used a metal one from my stash. The tinsel at the bottom is Tim's blue one as I used all the silver tinsel on my Christmas cards. I do not yet have the mirrored card that is in Tim's range and so I did my JOY using some holographic mirror card which has a lovely sheen to it.
For the second tag, again I used the same techniques and colours that Tim did but I did not have the Joy to the World die and used a stamp from my stash on the ticket. I stamped it with Versamark and then embossed it with JudiKins Black Detail Embossing Powder.
Again I did not have the Idea-ology deer charm. I was stumped on this for a while and then had a brainwave. I took the Movers and Shapers small deer die and cut this out in Shrink Plastic but when I shrunk it down it was far too tiny. I cut the deer out again on card and then triple embossed it with Debbi Moore's Metal Magic in silver to create a faux silver deer. I then embossed the shrink plastic deer in the same way. I was really pleased with the result. I liked the little one so I put it together with the big one to look like Mum and Baby.
I do hope Tim keeps to this format with his tags for 2013, it is so much easier doing one per month than one each for the 12 days of Christmas and it lets us focus on other occasions throughout the year.
If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment, I love to read them and providing I can find you I will always return the compliment. Hope you are all nearly ready for the festivities ahead. Hugs, Anne xx
