12 Tags of 2013 with Tim Holtz-November

I was so thrilled to see Tim's tag this month. I took his CC102 class and this was one of my favorite techniques.  Now I don't own the stamp and die set so I had to stamp twice and do some fussy cutting. I still love this technique to bits!  You can see Tim's Tag on his blog .  Here is my version:
The products I used are:
Tim's Tag and Bookplate Die
Tim's Oak Leaf Rubber Stamp
Ranger's Antiquities Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder
Distress Embossing Ink
White Chalk

Thank you for looking!

SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge-Keep it Simple

I still struggle with Cards but enjoy making them. This week's challenge on the SSS Challenge Blog is "Keep it Simple" ... I'm not sure if I managed to do that or not LOL  I worked with 4 ingredients, which are:
2. Distress Inks
3. Tim's Snowman Blueprint Stamp
4. water
I stamped the snowman blueprint image on White Cardstock then lightly colored him in using Distress Inks and Water with Tim's fine detail waterbrush. I then laid a piece of cardstock over the image and inked the edges of the card front with Distress Ink. I admit I wanted to go in and add more color and some embellishments but held myself back ;-)  My Best Friend is crazy about Tim (who isn't, right?) and crazy about Snowmen so this card will be going to her.
Go check out the SimonSaysStamp Challenge Blog and join in on the fun!
