tims 12 tags

this is the first year I have tried to play along.
I own maybe 3-5 of his products. not alot.
so my goal for playing along was to let tim influence me, inspire me,
but ultimately the tags will show me and my style!
so thanks tim for helping me get creative!
(to get deatails and how to's for tims tag go to his blog here )
heres the day tag of tim's:
and heres my day 1 tag:
similar, you can tell he was my inspiration, yet the tag is all me!!!!
the details of my tag are as follows:
I used wax paper and sprayed two shades of glimmer mist.
I then rubbed my tag in the mist and dried it with my heat gun.
I inked the edges of my tag black.
I stamped my star image on in black also.
then i went to work on my house. I first cut the house shape out from card board. then removed the top layer to reveal the corrugated paper. I painted it a light pink then went over the ridges with silver. I also added plastic in my window as tim did.
next the wreath. simple, I rolled up a pipe cleaner. added a plastic shiny star and voila!
the ticket is a pinkpaislee ticket I used the back side of. I used the same process with the glimmer mist as I did for the tag. then inked the edges and stamped my phrase.
the tree is a pink paislee die cut I traced onto cardstock. cut out and painted silver.
the fence is simple rectangels cut out pianted white and assembled.
to top the whole tag off I used liquid applique in white to creat the snow. simply apply and heat with heat gun till puffy. then I sprinkled glitter over the whole card knowing it would only stick to the liquid applique.
tie my ribbon on top and there you have it!
a sweet tag for any gift inspired by tim, but all my own!
