New Tim Tag for August

If you are a fan of Tim Holtz then you'll probably already know that the next tag in his 12 tags of 2012 is up!  This month he has plenty of fab tachniques including stamping and embossing, texture fades, die cutting and more.  The element that caught my eye was the tattered pine cone roses.  Tim originally showcased this at Christmas and I fell in love with the versatility of this Sizzix die right away. 

I don't usually invest in seasonal or themed products as they tend to have a limited number of uses but the pine cone is really fab.  Not only does it make a very authentic looking pine cone when made in brown card but if you use coloured cardstock and make a slight adjustment it creates a really lovely rose. 

If you'd like to see Tim's step by step instructions and his video for creating the pinecone/rose you can find it here
