12 Tags of Christmas 2010 - Day 6

I've put a stickie post up with an attached thumbnail linky thingy for anyone who wants to play along with the Splinter Group again this year!
I thought we all could add a link to the specific blog post of each tag and then it will make it easier to hop around to share the joy LOL

Here is my tag for today ;)

Today?...Today I  held my hands up and admitted defeat! LOL
...Toooooo much I have not got.....toooooooo much that would take tooooo long to recreate in a round about today I went with a completely stamped tag but still tried to capture the essence.
 ;) I just knew that darned reindeer would turn up!!! HOL

I had to use a smaller tag than I have been using up to now to keep the proportions looking o.k.
....stamped the trees from the mini set in DI's peeled paint and brushed sage and masked.
....stamped the Papermania deer in Archival black.
I'd already used the T!m sentiment on yesterdays changed it for the Artistic Stamper one from mini Christmas 1
...I decided to use a metal word that I've had in my stash for a long was free with a magazine I seem to remember ;).
....Keep having fun ;)
....and.........Keeeeeeeeep stamping!

To celebrate the amazing tags being shared from all over the world
Jennie The Artistic Stamper is going to add more prizes to the pot as well as the original goody bag full of T!m stuff to some lucky people who share a tag using the linky post. the more tags you share the better your chances are :)

  1. Oh I think you captured the essence perfectly. I LOVE what you have made!

  2. I know how you felt, I didn't have anything either. I was somewhat more devious than you. I love your tag, and as Donna said you have captured the look perfectly

  3. I love it :D
    Haven't attemptedmine yet but am gutted I didn't give in and order them bloody deers LOL :D
    Now I have spotted a rosette die in stock - do or don't I????Hmmmmm LOL

  4. It is beautiful, I agree with the others about the look.

  5. Ooh! Your tag is beautiful Sioux! I'm loving your alternatives! x

  6. I have admitted defeat too. Although your idea to stamp it is one I did consider - may go back to it later (or tomorrow!)

  7. You really nailed the challenge with your great improvisations, love it. Woo Hoo I have that reindeer from Papermania as well. Just waiting for supplies and then I will be back in playing catch up. Annette x

  8. Day 6 already and I haven't even made one yet! How will I ever catch up? Probably won't. I think I have those metal words somewhere too!

  9. You did a great job with today's Tag, I mostly stamped mine too and used the Cricut for that darned reindeer! I can see tomorrows being a struggle too, with the sneak peek of the Bark Folder! lol.
    Hugs, Donna x

  10. oh hun,you have captured tims tag beautifully ,really love your take on it,done mine,but hate it as had non of the things tim used again but wil post it maybe,hugs cheryl xxxxxxxx

  11. A beautiful tag Sioux - I just love your alternative (more than the original .....). Thanks for giving us so much inspiration.

  12. I think your tag looks amazing, you've done a wonderful job. It's 01.15 on Tuesday and I'm just trying to do this tag and am finding it extremely difficult, but will not be defeated, will work it out.

  13. Who says you have to do it just like Tim's anyways. I am doing my own version of my own tags and yes I may use Ranger products but I like to say this is my own way. Yes we like to see the techniques but art is your own and no one else's. I say good for you for doing your own version and take a peek at my blog for my take on the 12 tags if you like.

  14. Turned out just right, we have to be rescourceful!

  15. I love your tag!! It proves that you don`t need everything that Tim uses;-)

  16. Fabulous interpretation. Love it. xx

  17. This is so lovely and glad you didn't give up completely.
    You've captured the essence perfectly!

  18. A really beautiful tag Sioux. I really do think I prefer this to the original.
