WOYWW wk 80

Wednesday is here again!
My desk is still in Tim mode, I haven't put away my Tim bits yet!
I know I said I wasn't making Christmas cards this year but I though I might make just a few!
So that is what I will be doing later today.
If you want to see more desks pop over to Julia's blog and you will find more!

The postman has just been!!!!! AH I am so excited!!!!
Inside the jiffy was a parcel!!!

This is what was in there. Oh my goodness!! What a wonderful prize!!!!! I don't have any of these at all!!!!
I know what I'll be doing for the rest of the afternoon!!!!!
Thank you Tim and Mario!

Tims Christmas Tag #11 &12

Here are my last two tags!
#12 proved difficult as I didn't have anything!
So I have used what I had. I made the bauble and pine cones. The background and the stamp are Crafty Individuals, the corners and letters are WRMK.

I didn't have anything the same for this tag either!
The tree is hand cut, the background stamp is from La Blanche, the plaque is made from a plate and two corners and I didn't have the believe tag so I used stickers!
I have really enjoyed making these!
What am I going to do now they are all finished!

Tims Christmas Tag #10

This tag was so hard to photograph! So apologies fo the rubbish photo (this was the best of many)!

Well I didn't have the snowman so once again I had to cut my own! I didn't have the snowflake embossing folder either so I used a swirly one, I used eyelets instead of washers and brads (I haven't used eyelets for yonks) didn't have the charm at the top either so this is a WRMM big brad (with the back squished) and hung from the ribbon with a chain.

Tims Christmas Tag #9

Tag #9 is finished!
I don't have the rosette die so I had a go at making that this morning, didn't turn out too bad!
I used vintage market letter as they're the only ones I have! As they are larger I couldn't fit as many pretty bits on (which is a good job cos I am running out of them).
Also I didn't put glossy accents over the letter as I am running out of that too!

Tims Christmas Tag #8

Well for todays tag I only had the distress inks and the tiny atacher!
No clock face so I used the clock mask instead (I don't have the santa mask either), nor do I have the houses di so these I cut free hand. My swirly stamp is from La Blanche. The banner is hand writen (I really like that dymo tape one though).
I thought I had a lot of Tims things but it seems not!!!

Tims Christmas Tag #7

Here's tag #7!
I used a different embossing folder (I don't have the bark one) and sticky letters and also I didn't have the little dangly thing with 25 in it so I used a paper clip on that I have had for ages (I think it may have been free with a magazine once). Apart from that all techniques are the same as Tim's.
I had a little trouble with my sprays especially the red one this morning, I got it everywhere so I am now sporting love red fingers/nails!

Tims Christmas Tag #6

Another tag with more improvising!
I didn't have the tree embossing folder so I hand cut some trees and adhered them to my background tag, the deer I had to draw and cut from grunge paper, the plaque was made, the tissue paper (one of the ones I don't have is the music one) was stamped and glued, the wreath I made from scraps of hand made paper, frilled and wound around some wire.
All the techniques are Tim's.
Well we are half way through and I am loving making these!
Can't wait for tomorrow!!!

Tims Christmas Tag #5

It is easier to say what I had for this one! I had the right coloured distress inks and the 2 and 5 and that was it!!!
So everything else is either different or made.

Tag #4

Lots of improvising on this tag too!
I don't have Tim's pad with the Christmas papers in (sad face here) so I used a stamp instead! Santa was stamped onto tissue paper and coloured from the back with crayons and his beard was painted with snow cap dabber (using my finger) this was left to dry.
The background paper is from Crafty Individuals Christmas backing papers 6x6 pad.
Santa was adhered to this with a glue stick.
then I added bling and ribbons as Tim has instructed on his blog!

I am SO excited!!!!!

I AM SO EXCITED!!! My comment has been 'picked' on Tim's 12 days of Christmas!
Have had my conformation e-mail from Mario and a prize is on it 's way in the morning (their time).
I NEVER usually win anything, so I am SO excited!!!!

Off to make today tag and then I will blog Sat, Suns and today.

Tims Christmas Tag #3

Here is my #3 tag!
Would you believe it I don't have a red alcohol ink!!!!!
The 'branch' I used is from La Blanche, the little 'poster' is part of a stamp from Crafty Indiviuals.
The lace I coloured using bundled sage distress ink, my 'tinsel' is eyelash fibre sprayed with Adirondack colourwash spray lettuce, (another compromise), I did have tissue tape so I made the flower!

Tim Tag #2

So here is my Tim tag #2.
All the same techniques but none of the same stamps. To see Tims and get the instructions go over to his blog.
The bird stamp I used is from Crafty Individuals, the flourish is from La Blanche, I did use Tims dotty stamp too (I do have some of Tims things, honest, just not the right ones for these tags it seems!)
The 'Merry Christmas' is alphabet stickers coloured with barn door distress ink.
I used some pearls and glass beads for the embelishment and some ribbons to finish off.

Just Typical!

I only used this georgous birdy from Tim Holtz yesterday on this pendant I made! Then I find out this morning Tim has used it on his #2 Christmas tag! (Another improvise come on then!)
The pendant is one of the wooden hearts I have been making Christmas decs from (I pulled out the string and added an 'eye' screwy thingy in the top). Stamped a flourish from Paper Artsy in black archival on the left side and added the bird and the flower with silicon, the key is just free on the throng.
Attached on the bottom with another 'eye' thingy is 3 small and 1 larger crystal beads.
Around the edge of the heart I rubbed a small amount of Incagold in green.

Tims Christmas Tag #1

Here is my tag!
I don't have the house die or the picket fence die from Tim so I cut my own.
the house was just cut free hand in grunge paper and the fence is wood veneer cut into pieces and assembled using glossy accents and painted with dabbers and glittered. I also made the wreath from hand made paper and the berries are Claudines Studio paints (red) blobbed on with a ball embossing tip.
