Today I decided to play along with Tim Holtz and the 12 Tags of 2012!!
Here is the link if you need Inspiration or want to play along!!

Here is the tag that Tim shared~~
DSC03001Here are the tags I came up with!!

For this first tag I used Tim's New Easter Die by Sizzix and cut the butterfly out of grunge board, and two pieces of cardstock. I sprayed all three with Glimmer mist in butternut squash and the stamped on one of the cardstock pieces and used crackle paint in rose and spiced marm. I then used the butterfly movers and shapers die and cut a piece of honeycomb paper in bright pink. I cut the butterfly in half and attached it to the larger butterfly center. I folded the butterfly to give it even more dimension and I LOVE how it turned out!! For the base of the tag I die cut a doily using Tim's doily edger die. I then used modeling paste that I died with some metallic paint and used the die cut for a stencil. I also used a heart doily die from sizzix and repeated the same process on another tag. Once they were dry I layered them to create my background after I stamped using the large background paris stamp by Tim Holtz. I inked the background with Distress inks (Vintage rose, Worn Lipstick and Ripened Persimon) I attached the butterfly and added some silk ribbon by May Arts Ribbon that I inked and sprayed with tattered angels glimmer mist!!

For the second tag I used the die cut doily that I used for the stencil on the first tag. I coated the whole thing with modeling paste and then stamped on it using Tim's script stamp. I cut a piece of Tim's core`dinations cardstock for the tag base and ran it through his embossing folder then used distress inks and Inkagold to define the design even more. I LOVE how it turned out. I then distressed the edges and attached it to the tag base. I die cut the maniquin and attached the honeycomb paper after I inked it up. I rapped May Arts Burlap twine around the spool and embossed the buttons and added twine to the centers. I attached a memo pin and stamped a sentiment from The Craft's Meow NEW Sew Stamp Set. I LOVE this NEW stamp set. I then attached everything to the tag and added a silk May Arts Ribbon to the top with a Tim Holtz garmet pin.
I had a BLAST playing along with the challenge and can't wait for the next challenge!!

THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)



  1. beautiful all the fun details..

  2. Awesome tags! I love all the details you put into them. I haven't worked with modeling paste in that fashion so I appreciate you explaining your use of it. I love that dress form you used on your tag too.

  3. Love that dress form tag. Gorgeous colors and feel to it.

  4. They're both beautiful tags, especially the "Sew lovely." The texture you created with the modeling paste is awesome. Blessings!
