Tim's Tag Day 4

Well, today's Tim Tag was another challenging one! I didn't have a similar picture or the sticky canvas. If I had, I would have taken some regular canvas, fused it to a piece of cardstock and run in thru my printer. My printer hates strange things tho, so it might not have worked anyway!

Instead, I was lucky enough to have this stamp from Oxford Impressions' Season of Giving plate. Since I didn't have the same kind of coverage as the canvas would have given, I used Fired Brick Distress crackle paint to cover the top half of my tag. The bottom is Frayed Burlap dtp'd onto the tag, followed by Black Soot.

I bought a Dymo label maker at an estate sale awhile ago, once I spotted it, I couldn't pass it up. It's an awesomely awesome 60s-70s lime green edition. Check it out!

Dang! How cool is that? I love that it says 'Peace'. Anyone who grew up in the 70s remembers writing/putting 'Peace' on everything! I'm thinking Candy did not excel at Spelling however.....

Ok, back to the tag. I found my label maker, but thought it was out of black tape. I had red and green, but really wanted the black. I was all set to improvise - there is a free font that looks exactly like a label maker tape. I downloaded it, typed out my words, and then glanced at my label maker and realized it was loaded with black tape. Arrrrgh! But, now I have a nice font and maybe you need this font too! We all win.

Just one wee MacGyver moment today. Instead of the washer that Tim uses, I punched (again) a small circle from aluminum tape. Punch another hole in the middle and you have yourself a washer! Ink, etc like the Philosophy tag I did in my last post.

Oh, and the calendar page is from Oxford Impressions' Winter Snow stamp set. Perfect!


  1. brilliant again. I'm loving your takes on tim's tags, I hope you do all of them

  2. This looks really great, Shelly! I'm going to have to get that OI set--everyone's doing such great stuff with it. I need more stamps.


  3. Isn't it funny, I always thought it was a girl on Santa's lap. lol
    Good job, Shelly. Love you faux metal embellishments.


  4. beautiful tag shelly. I thought tim's tag reminded me so much of that OI stamp one of my faves!! Beautiful.

  5. Shelly - these are great! I haven't tried any of Tim's tags yet but love the 2nd one he did....
