I made another tag for my wedding "slide" show. It's a Halloweeen one. The photo was taken 10 years ago. I was Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. Wow time flies.

I cut the tag using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die TAG & BOOKPLATES Movers And Shapers. The cardstock is Martha Stewart. I cut the bats out with a Martha Stewart punch.

Craft Filled Friday Night!!

I had a whole night to create in my craft room last night! I was too tired to post all the tags and projects I finished last night so this will be a long blog post.
First I made a cone inspired by Linda's Tag 3 I liked her mini sheet music and the flourish.

I used the bird/vine Sizzix die. The sheet music stamp is TH. I colored the cardstock with Distress Stain in Red Barn Door and Peeled Paint.
For Tag 4 of Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style I made this one:

I liked Linda's tag with the icicles and the snowflakes with the 25 on them.
The stamps are Tim Holtz.
Here's my tag for # 5:

I was inspired by Linda's Tag. I liked her white flower and the embossed "Joy".
I used bronze embossing powder on mine. I also like how she used the TH wing stamp.
For Tag 6 inspiration I liked Linda's doily on her tag. I made mine into a rosette and added a pinecone on top.

For Linda's Tag 7 I liked her cardboard tree and the Christmas Ticket.
Here's mine:

I didn't  have the same tree die, but I like how mine turned out.
For Linda's Tag 8 I liked her white flower!

This is my version. I like adding Stickles on everything :)
For Linda's tag 11 I loved her copper 25 she made and the snowflake on the edge die.
Here's mine:

I used copper alcohol ink on the copper to make the 25 stand out better. I really like how the whole thing turned out.
For Linda's tag 12 I really liked her bird cage but I don't have that die. I also liked her bow and the leaves, so I used what I had and came up with this:

And this is what I did with most of the music paper cones. I hung them on my stair rail. A couple I'm giving as gifts.
Since I finished Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas, it was time to get going on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas! He made some amazing tags so far!
Here's my version of Tim's Tag 1:

I didn't have the pinecone sizzix die, but I did have these real ones in my yard!
Here's my version of Tim's Tag 2

And my last project for today, Tim's Tag 3 -my version:

I used a bunch of stamps I got out of the dollar bin at Michaels. The last stamp is a TH stamp. All the inks are TH distress inks. I embossed the whole tag with sparkley clear embossing powder.
Thanks for looking!!

12 Tags of Christmas week 2

12 Tags of Christmas Week 2! I was inspired by Linda's beautiful tag here.
This is mine:

I really like her printer block numbers so I made my own.

 Her black flower is also stunning.

I made mine out of black cardstock and black tulle using the Tattered Flowers Tim Holtz die. Used my Distress It All on the edges of the tag. Thanks for looking!

A new adventure: TCR #84

I recently came across Dusty Attic chipboard embellishments. Which led me to The Color Room challenge. I made a photo tag for our wedding story "slide show" that we'll have at our wedding next summer. This is a photo of me and Jeff back in 2003. We went on an air boat ride while on a vacation in Florida.
These are the colors we are to use:
Here is the first Dusty Attic element I bought, Vintage Clock 2! I colored it with Tea Stain Tim Holtz Distress Ink, and a thin layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint.
Thanks for looking!

12 Tags of Christmas week 10

For week 10 of Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas I was inspired to make this tag:
I really like how Linda embossed the whole tag. I used 2 different embossing folders from SU! The oval frame embossing folder worked perfect for the "Merry Christmas". I also really like the gold color on Linda's beautiful tag.
I rubbed a gold ink pad over the raised parts. I also spray the whole tag with Copper Tattered Angel's Glimmer Mist. The reindeer I cut out of a scrap I had left over from a project last year.
Tomorrow I hope to work on more tags for this challenge.
Thanks for looking!

A couple projects

I've been wanting to participate in Linda's 12 tags of Christmas but I've been too busy, so today I completed 2 projects. You don't have to make tags, just something that you've made that was inspired by her beautiful example. For my first paper cone I was inspired by Linda's cardboard stars in her week 9 tag.
I used some old sheet music to make my cones. I used a snowflake border punch around the edges of the rosette. Inked it with Tea Stain Distress Ink and some Star Dust Stickles.
I added some glitter around the edges of the star.

I also added a crystal from Maya Road.
My 2nd cone was inspired by Linda's 1st tag. I liked her rosette. They are so fun to make.

I added a paper doily under the rosette that I sprayed with Key Lime Tattered Angel's Glitter Spray. The large snowflake is made from cardboard.
More glitter and star dust stickles and a evergreen pick finished it off.
The last project I made today were these cute paper flowers:
There was a tutorial in this month's The Deviant Muse over at Deviant Scrap. It's a free newsletter. Edeena made a great button flower tutorial! I made 4 flowers.
I added the flowers to a birthday card I made. The fence was made with the Picket Fence On the Edge Sizzix die by Tim Holtz. I inked the edges of the flower with Distress Ink.
