Day 12 - the end...sigh

until next least I hope Tim does them again!  I've created tags for the 5 years he's done them and learned so much along the way.  It's also been fun creating them later in the year to suit other occasions or holidays.  After all, it's more about the techniques and finding new ways to use dies, stamps, etc. than it is to copy his tag.  Nothing wrong with that, especially when I'm trying to make certain I've mastered the particular technique.

No tissue here, in fact my local stores don't have any so I opted for snowflake tissue tape.  I'm actually happier with it because I could leave gaps and add another layer of color there.  I followed along with the steps but used my own ideas instead of the dwelling and frozen charlotte (those are just too weird for me to use but I can appreciate them from an antique point of view).

Tim supplies:  Season's Silhouettes background stamp; Holiday Lamppost, Carnevale, Festive Greenery, Vintage Lace dies; grungeboard & grungepaper;

Ranger supplies:  Jet Black, Saffron, Coffee Archival Inks; Glossy Accents; Picket Fence Distress Stain; Antique Linen, Forest Moss, Fired Brick Distress Stickles; Walnut Stain, Iced Spruce, Peeled Paint, Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany, Tumbled Glass Distress Inks; Black, Silver Paint Dabbers;

Misc. supplies:  HVAC tape; snowflake buttons, ribbons

Okay, so I think Jet Black Archival Ink and Glossy Accents are my 'must haves' when I'm stranded on a deserted island!  LOL, seriously, have you ever used them so much?  But they are so gosh darned invaluable!


  1. Just gorgeous, Susan, as always! It has been a great way to spend the start of December again with Tim and being able tos ee everyone's tags too is a special addition to the fun.

  2. Great job Susan! Love the tissue paper improv, it looks great!
