Happy New Year/CCC#25

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I found a little time the other night to do a tag using Scribble Stain Distress technique out of Tim's book for the CCC#25 on Linda's blog I have done this technique a few times and always get a little to much scribble!! lol

We are having a quiet New Year's Eve & Day snowed in, we have a good old ND blizzard going on and the interstates and roads are all closed! I couldn't get my car out of the garage if I wanted to, we have a 6ft. drift in front of it!! Sunday looks like a dig out day!! YUK, YUK, YUK!!!!
I have gotten a few doubles of things Tim's die cuts, so come back and visit my blog next week for a little giveaway.
Hope everyones new year will be wonderful!!

Tag #7

I got one more tag done, tag#7! I have to admit this one gave me a little trouble!! I got a little to much green on the tag, but hey it's Christmas right and the poinsettia was harder to put together then I expected, I didn't leave enough space in the center to use the button I wanted to use but made this one work. I haven't had much time lately so I have been rushing threw them so hopefully after Christmas I can concentrate on them. First a few projects for classes at work!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday!!

Tag #5 & 12

I managed to get a couple more tags done, I actually started #5 before the other two I posted, slow or what!!! lol For #5 I didn't have any green crackle paint so I used peeled paint distress ink then went over it with rock candy crackle. I got it on a little thick and it really picked it up in the picture, it really isn't that bad in person. I don't have any sparkly fluff so put stickles on Santa's hat as it looks like it has holly around it to me. I also didn't have Tim's numbers, well I have them but must have used all of the 2's & 5's so these metal numbers were a lot smaller and a lot harder to work with! I also don't have any white utee so I just used clear on it. What a fun technique though!!

Love tag #12, the movers & shapers are so fun to work with!! After I put my rock candy crackle paint on I thought you could heat it but oh it started looking funny so stopped, thank goodness or it would have really been messed up!! And of course the pic really picked it up!! Darn camera's magnifying all my mistakes!!!! And now that it is so cold & snowy out I can't take the pics outdoors anymore and I just can't get the lighting right taking them indoors!! Spring hurry up and get here!!! lol I don't have Tim's December stamp but I had picked up these cool Tim ATC stamps at Michaels the other day, didn't even know about them!! It was just a part of the stamp so it is smaller so I had to put some cardstock behind it. These stamps were just hanging on the side of an end cap, I almost missed them!!! Our Michaels carries very little of Tim's stuff so I was quite surprised when I seen them!! And I got them for $4.79 a piece, wow I was excited!!
I'm still hoping to at least finish one more tag before Christmas the poinsettia one, it looks so pretty!! The rest of the tags just might have to wait until after Christmas.

Have a good one everyone!!

12 Days of Christmas Tags #9 & 10

Finally had a little chance to play over the weekend and got Tag 9 & 10 done.
I did them pretty much the same as Tim, I was a little rushed so not perfect but will do and the main thing was to try the technique & ideas. I really liked coloring your own ribbon and what a cool idea of using the packaging on tag 10!! I plan to keep plunking away at getting all 12 done!!
What a wonderful 12 Tags of Christmas it was, loved all of the tags Tim made!! It amazes me that he takes time out of his busy schedule to do this for everyone, what a generous guy!! And the BTS on Twitter from Mario was great, another generous guy!! Wish them both the best Holiday Season!!

Have a good one!!

Double Distress/12 Tags of Christmas

Oh Yi Yi, will someone please slow my days down!! Between Christmas, Work & DH's retirement (lots & lots of forms to fill out) the days are going by way to fast!! I do have most of my Christmas shopping done and the tree is up so I guess I might be a little ahead of the game for Christmas. I think this is the earliest I've ever gotten most of the shopping done!! I'm not baking this year (so I say) so that will help! I did get this card done for the CCC where the challenge was Double Distress on Linda's blog but never had time to upload it. geeezzz This technique is a lot of fun!

When the challenge was first posted I wanted to make some flowers for something I'm decorating so I had tried these out, they didn't turn out quite how I wanted them but I'm sure I will find something to use them on.

Aren't you just loving the 12 Tags of Christmas on Tim's blog, all the tags have been fantastic so far!! The man drips with creativity!! And must never sleep, wish I could hang in there one night and see it right away when it is finished but that would mean about 3 in the morning for me, no can do!! I haven't had much time to play but did get day 4 done. I didn't have any facets so I used a fragment instead, this technique was trickier then I thought it would be, I will definitely have to practice some more on this one!!
I have seen some of the tags everyone has done and they all have been awesome, love how some of you are putting your own spin on them!! Looking forward to the next tag!!
Have a good one!!
