HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TIM HOLTZ!

When I went to see what our amazing Linda had in store for this week's Grungy Monday #31, I was excited and nervous!  Making a card/tag for "TIM," was not what I expected!  Well "Happy Birthday, Tim" and I sure wish you many, many more!  I will say this and I know you all agree with me, Tim goes beyond inspiration and encourages us in so many ways!  What I like the most is that it is all about the techniques and learning.  No matter what your style is, you have so much to learn from this incredible artist!  Oh and I just can't wait for book number #2!  Linda is going to give me a swat for this, but I think I see a CCC2 just around the corner????  Love you, Linda!  You know I do!!  We are also taking Tim's Birthday card to Simon Says Stamp and Show Something Old ... Something New!  Here it is!!

I knew I was going to use this Kraft Resist paper and the map is one of my very favorites and the grid for the card base!  I love making frames out of Tim's Sizzix line of dies, which I cut from grunge paper and mounted on chipboard.  The gp frame was inked with one of my prizes (NEW) from Stampers Anonymous, the "Old Paper" stain, which I totally love and will so be ordering more!  I then stamped it with the (NEW) crackle stamp from Tim's "Joyful Song."  "The World" and card background were Distress Inked and I added a little of my own bling mix.  I had thought about hanging a word token or stick from the frame top, but then decided to make a shrink plastic old jalopy and arrow from my (NEW) movers and shapers die set.  This were inked with alcohol inks and clear embossing powder.  The "Happy Birthday" was cut from foil using Tim's Typeset and again inked with alcohol inks!  The words were generated from my computer and I used a print that best reflected "The World."  All other items and products used in this post are "OLD."
Now I want to give a shoot out to "Stampers Anonymous" for their most generous giveaway during the "12 Tags of Christmas" and a huge thank you!  I was one of the lucky winners and the package included a Trinket Box, 3 Distress Stains, 2 stamps sets and a package word sticks!  Love how all my embellishments fit so nicely in the case. 

Well I sure hope that Tim has an amazing birthday!  Thank you so kindly for stopping by and have a great day!

Distress Inks:  Dried Marigold, Tumbled Glass, Vintage Photo, Old Paper
Distress Stains:  Old Paper
Alcohol Inks:  Black, Copper, Pearl, Gold and Blending Medium
