Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas: Day 3


If you've seen Tim Holtz' blog today then you know why we at Simon Says Stamp are blushing....shades of Tattered Rose, Fired brick, and I betcha when Tiff sees it, her ears will be all Barn Door!

My goodness that man Tim is so talented and at the same time, so darned Sweet!

Let's give a round of blogging applause for Mister Tim Holtz! .........WOOT WOOT! Definitely check out his blog - he did videos for this tag too! If you twitter, be sure to follow @tim_Holtz and @mariojrossi gives the best behind the scenes making of the tag and teasers imagineable! Seriously fun, these guys are oober cool!

Ok, now, onto this tag. Birdee has become close to my heart. Ever since I laid eyes on her in the caged bird Sizzix Die, my heart warmed to the possibilities. Just by adjusting her wing or placing an eye, or cocking her position, you can drastically change her purpose on your card, altered art, and scrapbook art too! Do you know what I mean? You can give her ...Expression! In fact, I affectionately call her "birdee" All right, not so original, but I do like this bird. A LOT!

If you want to make this tag or your own inspired version of Day 3 of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, we have been working VERY HARD to give you one stop shopping! Remember, all USA & Canada orders over $70 ship for free while International orders over $250 ship for free too! However, you are always encouraged to interpret this in your own way and use your favorite supplies you already have on hand....that's what they are there for!

Be sure to comment here. During Tim's 12 Tags, we pull random comments and the author gets the pick of any item in today's supply list!

  70. So glad Tim gave you guys a shout out...I actually came across you for the first time last week but I am always shy ordering online from someone when I haven't heard anything about them. Then today he is screaming your name from the tag tops! Of course, due to the 12 days tag frenzy, the lovely scatter stamp I wanted is long gone lol, but I will be back when it's back. Looking forward to my first order with you!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love these tags! I love following along with Tim. I stayed up late creating a list of stamps to call Hobby Lobby for and THEY DON'T CARRY THEM!!! RATS! I need to find them somewhere! Maybe here on this site....I just found it. Jumped from Tim's blog. Thanks, I REALLY need some of his holiday stamps.
