Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011 - Day Seven and Eight!

Yes, I know my blog background is off and so are the backgrounds of a few bloggers I know.  Not quite sure what to do, but will remove it, if this is how it will be!  Anyway on to Tim's Day Seven and Eight!  Linking to Inspiration Emporium and Simon Says Stamps and Show Some Elements of Time.
Day Seven started with a very late start, because I was hoping the stamp set he used would actually arrive and it did not!  It also looks like it might not arrive before this adventure ends!  I used Pumice Stone and Bundled Sage for the background colors and shaded with Vintage Photo.  Background stamps are Stampin Up "French Script" and Stampendous "Crackle."  I have been trying to use mostly Tim's products, but now and again, you got to do what you got to do!  I will say this tag had me pull out my Hot Glue Gun that I have not used in ages!  So much easier!
Day Eight, was another late start.  I had a doctors appointment and knew if I started anything "stamp" involved I would be late and arrive with ink stained hands!  So sorry on both accounts that the pictures may be lacking!  I am not the best photographer, so lack of light, does not help!  My inks of choice were Bundled Sage, Barn Door, Tumbled Glass, Pine Needles and Walnut Stain.  I cut out little images from Tim's Seasonal papers for the film strip.  The GIANT letters, which never dawned on me until after, were chipboard pieces that I inked with Black Craft and then did two coats of UTEE.  I used my own collection of vintage gears and watch/clock pieces and added a little piece of tissue tape.  All stamps are Tim's.  I decided my guys were have tinsel instead of holly in their hats. 

What a total disaster the room is in now!  I actually will have no choice, but to clean it up!  I am not sure where I have put little bits and pieces.  Wow!  Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and will catch you all tomorrow!

Fab take on both days Terry! Love the added tinsel to the men's hats! Your blog was viewed just fine for me - my studio is a disaster too!

Beautiful tags- I love the pretty sprig of greenery and the sentiment and tinsel on the 1st one, and the 2nd one is awesome- I like that it is way less busy than the sample shown- perfect balance!

Love your tags!!! I especially like your take on Tim's steampunk tag. It seems to be softer and prettier!

I haven't started any of them yet so I'm way behind. Just can't find the mojo!

Hi Terry. Your "take" on Tim's tag is cute! Don't you just love the steampunk feel on a Christmas tag!?! Who would'a thought? haha Anyway, I like the addition of the tinsel on the gentlemen's hats. Very nicely done. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
