Tim Holtz - Day 3

I'm running a bit behind on Tim's tags...this is day 3. Tim did a plaid with alcohol inks and glossy paper. I went stamping at a my friend, Heather's last night. We get together once a month to "play". We have such different styles that it's fun to compare notes!

I did my background with Cranberry, Lettuce and blending solution in a wide plaid. I stamped Santa directly on the plaid. I also used FIRED BRICK to stamp script behind Santa. To frame him, I punched branches with my Martha Stewart branch punch (as Heather said last night - I get a lot of mileage out of that branch punch). I used Stickles to make berries. Then wrapped Scrapper's Floss and a charm at the top.

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous SANTA'S WISH and LETTER TO SANTA
Paper: tag, glossy paper
Ink: Distress Ink: FIRED BRICK
Accessories: Al: Cranberry and Lettuce, blending solution, Martha Stewart branch punch, stickles, Scrapper's Floss, Idea-ology tag charm, and ribbon.


  1. You rocked this one! Gorgeous! I like the softness of it, it is not near as busy as mine! I will have to try your idea with less colors and wider bands, it looks so much better. Gorgeous!!!
