The 12 Tags of Christmas #12 - Finally!

I finally finished up my 12th Tag of Christmas from Tim Holtz Challenges!  Preparations for Christmas sort of took me away from my craft table - but I was determined to get it done!  You can see Tim's 12th tag here along with all his instructions for the various techniques he uses -  including making the pretty tissue paper flower!

Here's my Tag #12:
I didn't have Tim's printed tissue paper - so I stamped music from  Musical Backgrounds on plain white tissue and glued that to my card base that I had stamped with a text stamp from Text It.   I used sparkly Thicker Letters.   Instead of a white figurine -  I used a tree and reindeer that I had made from Shrink Plastic when I was using that technique on my Tag #11 (that was SO fun!) The sentiment stamp is from VIP Inc.

I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the  Stampin' Sisterhood Sunday Challenge -  hope you'll join in!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Text It, Musical Backgrounds,  VIP Inc - Sentiment
Paper:  white - PTI,  thin coaster, Shrink Plastic
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Walnut Stain,  Picket Fence Distress Stain, Adirondack Cloudy Blue Acrylic Dabber, Alcohol Inks - Rust, Lettuce.
Accessories:  Thicker Letters, glitter eyelash yarn - Martha Stewart, glue dots, wrinkled seam tape, Glossy Accents, tree & reindeer - Sizzix Dies, star button from stash, Melting Pot - Ranger, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.

Julia!!! I am so impressed with how you kept to the spirit of Tim's tags and also used with you have. This one might just be my favorite. The thickers are perfect to stand in for his alpha...and you captured the essence of his design.

Yeah you, you made it!!!!

Merry Christmas my friend. Stay warm and be blessed always
