Tim's 12 Tags Rubber Cafe' Style !

Hi Everyone! 

Today - I'm going to share with you my 2 versions of Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2013 for March.  I did one that was pretty close to Tim's tag, but than I decided to do another one using stamps from The Rubber Cafe'.  This was a fun tag, with some fun products and techniques, which is what I enjoy most about keeping up with these each month.

 Here's a full view of my tag using The Rubber Cafe' stamps

The paper for these are based on the Holiday Paper pad from Ranger- there are large 12 x 12 pages, and 6 x 6 size pages.   The other fun technique is using the tinsel trim wrapped and layered, colored with Alchohol markers, and than melted a bit with the heat gun.

 Stamping the Easter Eggs set on Kraft - I colored them in one color each using Copic markers.  I diecut from Tim's Holkday paper 2 ovals using my Spellbinders Classic Ovals set,  to look like decorated eggs.  Layered over it I cut a banner and stamped one of the Easter sentiments also from the Easter Eggs set.

 Here's a closeup of my other Tim Tag TRC style with view of those wonderful Easter Eggs!

 I cut my own grass - layered in 3 rows, each was stamped with the Grass with Flowers stamp which really added some dimension to the grass when I cut the blades. 

 This whole tag is built on a Prima Tag pad that I cut the bottom off and created a pocket that the pictorial eggs and bunny are tucked into.  I just love the warmth the Kraft paper gives these otherwise pastel tags!
I had some more paper left  - so made this cute little Star book that worked perfect with the 2" x 3" sections!

Here is the cover....
