Another TWO-FER of TIM TAGS: October & November...

...because, if you hadn't heard, I was having a 'challenge free'
challenge month in October. But I also challenged myself
to do ALL the Tim Tags this year. So I did both this month!
Here's Tim's October inspiration. Halloween themed:
 Now, I need to disseminate. Not sure what that word
actually means, but I THINK it fits here.
You see, I don't 'DO' Halloween. And I don't
have those dies anyways.
BUT I DO have Tim's flower & leaf ones.
So.....I did the SAME techniques & followed
the SAME steps - but with them!
Love that stamped bee I added. Glossy accented some leaves.
Take note, Margaret M!!!
And felt VERY Becca K with my distress ink layers!!!
They were originally ALL white card stock!!!

Same-same. I NEVER have the stuff Tim has. Maybe
that's cos I'm a very poor cousin!! Metaphorically speaking:)
The tag:
And I have to say, being in we don't do Thanksgiving &
it's the completely wrong season for pumpkins. Of which I do NOT
have a stamp anyways. See where I'm heading??!!!
So I went Chinese-ish! These were some stamps I could at least
colour in, which is what Tim did amongst other things. He foiled
the edge of his tag. But I had no foil, so used heat embossing:
The paper around the 'hello' is NOT cork. I didn't have any of that
either. So I took Kraft card stock, added some stamps with Distress
ink....turned out not too badly;)
Of course, this tag has made its way onto a Man Card already.
Gotta be useful, right??!!!
Cheers & Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
