Tim Holtz Tags February 2014

Over at Tim Holtz's website here:

He is doing the tags of 2014 and I am making postcards each month from them.

This month Tim used a wide variety of products to create a wonderful Valentine's Day tag and I wanted to do something similar but without the Valentine's Day undertones.

I usually make two postcards, one for a friend and one for me to keep. 

I used a few of Tim's other stencils for the background, I just love that shatter stencil, so cool

Instead of applying distress glitter to a heart, I cut out some tattered flowers from grungeboard and used two colors of distress glitter
I used a different sentiment from the same stamp set 
Here are my finished postcards:

I really like how they came out, so like Tim's but yet so different. 
I hope you will give the Tags a go too, they are really fun

Thanks for coming by and cheers to you!!


  1. I like them both!! You did a great job with those bright colors! I absolutely love the way you used the ribbon.

  2. I love your different take on Tim's tag,Claudine. The techniques are so verseltile and great for other cards. Yours are super!

  3. Awesome job Claudine!
    I love the idea of postcards.

  4. Love your postcards, Claudine! Using Tim's work as inspiration is so much more rewarding that just copying it. I am so glad that you made these you own! Well done, my friend!

  5. Beautiful postcards. That cracked glass stencil is great. and the mini chalkboard! beautiful work.

  6. WAY COOL! I love the stencils you used and the color!

  7. I love the shatter one, too. These are gorgeous!
