It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Tim Holtz. I love the thought process that goes into making his products — and the ideas he shares to use them after we get them.
That said, you can understand how last week was one of my favorite weeks of the year. I loved the lessons and inspiration he put into his 12 Tags of Christmas.
Although I haven’t had time to try all of the techniques, yet, I did make a custom stamp pad with Distress Ink Re-inkers and Cut & Dry Felt. I even tried embossing after stamping with Distress Ink for a unique “looks wet” sort of look. Here’s the link to Tim’s instructions ...
And, here’s what I did …
Pretty cool, eh?! And, it came out perfect on the first attempt — which is even cooler.
Since rubber stamps are my latest favorite product, I am challenging myself to use them on scrapbook pages. It sounds simple, but it really is more difficult than one would think. So, this was my first attempt at incorporating stamps into scrapbook pages. The paper and ribbon are by Bo Bunny. The stamps are by Tim Holtz and JudiKins. The date is grungeboard letters by Tim Holtz, painted with a Ranger Paint Dabber. (Click on the images to make them larger).
If you notice the date, you will realize why I need to make myself incorporate my new love of stamping into my scrapbook pages!
