Let's start with Halloween! There is a cool Witch Hazel label stamp that you could put on an old bottle or use as a background. The Vintage Bat, Cat, Owl, Skeleton and Witch are reminiscent of old Halloween decorations - you know the ones that had the hinged legs! Tim used them to make his own Halloween Garland and it ROCKS! There are a bunch of super cool Distressed Fall Leaf stamps that would complement any fall project! A Sketch Raven (tap tap tapping at your door) and a spooky Owl Scroll are also great for those Halloween projects. Use the Owl Scroll as a whole, or just the edges of the scroll as Tim did in this Halloween tag. And my favorite (I'm partial to skeletons...) is the Dictionary Skeleton. He is awesome! Look how Tim used him in this tag above. Mr. Dictionary Skeleton has such a ominous presence, doesn't he?
And now for the Winter Holiday Season! Snowflakes galore! You know, no two snowflakes are ever the same, and that's why I can't get enough of them!
Besides 6 different Snowflakes in various sizes and a Snowflake Strip Border, there is an cool winter Tree Sketch as seen in the tag to the right. Do you know what Tim did to color in this tree? Watercolored with Distress Inks! Yes, everyone, get your paint brushes out. Distress Inks are the most versatile inks around!
Also here for the holidays are some cool vintage greetings - Merry Christmas, Mini Christmas, and Happy Holidays. Seeing these makes me want to sit by the fire and have some hot chocolate!
Some fabulous foliage for winter are the Pinecone Branch, the Pinecone, and the Holly Branch. And don't forget the Carol Music background stamp and the big guy himself - Twinkle Santa! I love the name! You can see the twinkle in his eyes if you look hard enough...;)
Tim also released a stunning array of 10 different Post Card (Postage) stamps. Use them to make your own Post Cards, mail your own Tags, or more! Each one has a special personality and nostalgic feel.
The last part of the Tim Holtz Wood Mount Stamp Release includes the now famous Ticket Stamps from the Odds and Ends Cling Mount Stamp Set. These stamps are so versatile. A Calendar Ticket, a Christmas Ticket, a Valentine's Ticket, a Halloween Ticket and a Who What Where Ticket (great for scrapbooking!) are just the start. There is also a Blank Ticket that you can personalize in any way...OR...any of the Text stamps will fit inside that ticket (Imagine Text, Wish Text, Fate Text, Art Text, and Journey Text). Also a bonus - all the Text stamps will fit on the tabs of the File Tabs Alterations Die by Tim Holtz!
The last two are perfect for labeling your artwork. The Limited Edition Ticket allows you to both number and sign your artwork. And the Number Tab can be added to any piece of art in order to personalize as well! All of the Tickets will fit onto the Ticket Strip Alterations Die by Tim Holtz too!!!
See what I mean about versatility! I hope these fabulous new stamps are getting your creative juices flowing...have a wonderful day! Don't forget to snag up your favorite before someone else does!!!
