http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-april/. I tried to mimic Tim's design and colors for this tag, and even though I am the worst hot glue gun operator in the world, I brought mine out for the "pinecone" roses. I admit that I need to practice on the roses, but I think that they can be beautiful! Thanks for stopping by. Peace.

http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-march/. Instead of a tag, I made a card. This is the first time I have used Tim's new Distress Marker Spritzer and I absolutely love it! Other supplies I used were the Nature Walk CMS181 stamp set and the Honeycomb THS005 layering stencil. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think. Peace.

|This first card was for my train-loving father-in-law for Father's Day. I used Tim Holtz' CMS127 "On the Railroad" stamp set for this. I stamped the giant locomotive on the background, then stamped the train track on acetate with Archival ink and attached it with the Tiny Attacher, adding the typewriter keys with brads. Finally, I stamped the Railroad Crossing stamp on shrinky-dink plastic and cut it out, then shrank it with my heat tool, painted the back with Snow Cap acrylic paint dabber and adhered it with Glossy Accents.|

Hi all. I hope you had a nice pre-Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was great fun! We celebrated Thanksgiving early along with a GINORMOUS family birthday party! I wanted to share some of the cards I made for this event. Peace.
|I was unsure about this Tim Holtz butterfly die ("Fanciful Flight") at first, but now I LOVE IT! Also, his "Tattered Banners" really rock! After this card was all put together, I misted it with turquoise Perfect Pearls mist.|
|I had so much fun making this card for my nephew. It features the Tim Holtz' "Regal Crest" die and the "Bricked" embossing folder. The brick background really adds to the theme (whatever the theme is, that is!)|
|I don't use my Copic markers nearly as much as I should. Since Copics are so easy to use, I almost feel like a real artist when I use them. Hee hee!|
|What? More Tim Holtz? Yeah, that guy just makes me smile. For this card, I used the "Weathered Clock" die with some crackle paint.|
