Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas: Day 5


Such a festive tag! Santa Claus is coming to town. Merry and bright! Jolly and Happy! With a twinkle in his eye!

Tim Holtz is doing his 12 Tags of Christmas. If you aren't following along, now is the time to start!

The flock on Santa's beard make the tag really come to life! If you want to see Tim's cool technique of using UTEE on metal Numerals and using embossing powder to custom color the foliage, be sure to check out Tim's Blog Here.

Are you playing along? Remember, Simon Says Stamp has one stop shopping. We even have those really hard to find wood mount stamps. Here, Tim used TWINKLE SANTA rubber Stamp. Isn't he jolly!?

Many stores are sold out of the products used here. NOT Simon! Heck no! We've been stocking up for months to get ready for this MOST EXCITING time of year! Tim was right when he said we go to extreme measures to carry "everything Tim Holtz"! We have all of Tim's wood mounted stamps IN STOCK! ....the cling stamps too! The craft sheet is hard to find in stock at most stores, but we have this convenient protectent sheet IN STOCK! The supply list for this tag is below.
