Tim Holtz – 12 Tags of 2013 April


Hello, Crafty Peeps!   It has been a while since I posted here and It will take a while to show you some of the wonderful images I have been working with lately.  I have become an absolute fan of Rick St. Dennis’ images.  They are fun and easy to work with.  I also like that his images are unique.  Lots and Lots of digitals are starting to look alike and it is becoming more difficult to tell them apart.

I like this tag, because it is all stamping and paint.  I am having the best fun mixing acrylic paints with TH Distress inks and stains.  I finally broke down and purchased a few TH Distress Paints, and expect them to arrive any day.  Since I didn’t have the paints, I could create the Pantine technique that Tim is teaching in his project.  I did, I think, get the gear stained properly.   If you are not making Tim’s Tags because you don’t have the products, try making them with what you own.  That is what I do.  I’m not trying to win a challenge (that’s not likely to ever happen); I just use his tags for inspiration.  It’s fun!


The stamps sets used:  (Eiffel Tower) Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the Month-December 2012; Bo Bunny Etc. Clear Stamp Collection.  I added a small strip of washi tape and a wooden banner from one of the Prima Wood Trinkets collections.  I smeared a little distress ink on the tag and just let it rip.

Thanks for stopping by!



About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
