12 Tags of 2012 - May

Happy Monday!  This past weekend I was able to devote time to completing the May tag for the TimHoltz 12 Tags of 2012.

I don’t have the Haberdashery stamp set so instead I used a graphic that was printed on the pattern tissue as the tag background. The dressform and thread stamp are from the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Seamless Experience set and the Beaux Arts image is from Stampers Anonymous. I don’t have the Ideaology ruler ribbon so I cut a ruler from a sheet of Tim Holtz Design Originals paper and used it instead.

I don't have Ideaology Cash Key charms so I added the Fragments charm on the hanger clip. 

I substituted a 7 Gypsies Amber Apothecary Bottle instead of a wooden spool as I didn’t have a way to flatten the back of the spool so it would be flush against the tag.

This one was a lot of fun to make.  I finally put to use the Ranger Melt Art MeltingPot I purchased a while back to make the porcelain flowers.  I couldn’t find paper flowers and was really afraid that these synthetic fabric flowers would melt the minute I dipped them into the UTEE but they didn’t!  I loved making these porcelain-look flowers!  I’ll be using that melting pot more often now!

Thanks for looking!  I'll be back in a day or two with my piece for week 6 of the Compendium of Curiosities Volume Two challenge hosted by Linda on the StudioL3 blog!


  1. Love how the tag turned out and the pretty 'vase' of flowers. Nice clear photographs too!

  3. Your card is absolutely gorgeous - the flowers look so delicate and the vase is quite inspired!!!
