Tag time

While waiting for Tim Holtz to start
making his 12 tags of Christmas,
I started my own.

This tag is made with the cloisonné circle accent
and sentiment by Michael Strong
and the bauble punch by Stampin'Up!

For the background I used Suede glimmermist
and a tattered angle mask.
Festive Berries  and  Brushed corduroy distress ink.
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations
mini paper rosette
and tattered banners.

The cloisonné accent is embossed with gold
embossing powder and the tag
is finished of with some ribbons
and a metal wish tag.

Have a creative day!

TSSC 200

 Can you believe it? Sketch #200 over at
This time when you play you can ecen win a prize,
so give it a try.
It is such an easy and fun sketch, that I made two cards.
 Card # 1 is with Tim Holtz new Christmas stamp.
I stamped it in the two new special winter
distress colors and then embossed it wit
clear embossing powder. When all was
drie I used the snowflace embossing folder.
 I am totally in love with my Stampin Up! owl punch 
and all the things you can make with it. 
Here is my Santa Owl.
 The second card is with the trees of Michael Strong
stamped with a multi colored inkpad. When done
I ran it through the cuttlebug with a snowflake
folder and added some white ink.

Here I used the SU! owl punch again to make a
reindeer out of it holding the sentiment (by Michael Strong).
Have a creative day!
