tim tags with the new stamps!

hi everyone!
i have two more samples for you today using my new pine cone scroll stamps! today i used them more as a background stamp rather than the focal image. they also follow two of the recent tags over on tim holtz's blog.
the first one also uses Jen's sketch for last saturday's Sketch For You To Try->

and the card using tim's tag 11 tutorial:
i paired it up with some great pine needle patterned paper and accented the stamped images with my inkssentials pen.

here's a closer image of the main panel. the fragment charms are also stamped with pinecones and then embossed but the effect is hard to capture in a pic.

the next one is LOOSLEY based on Taylor's sketch from last friday->

And the card using tim's tag 9:

and a close up:

i used the pinecones to stamp randomly on the card base and then covered half with patterned paper from k & co. then on the main panel i also have pine cones peeking from under the "frosty - ness of the window pane i imaginethis snowman peeking thru :) yet another piece of tim holtz magic!!! just "flick a snow cap paint dabber on the top and bottom and then down each side. rub on the distress inks and stamp with distress inks and then wipe it off the painted portion which acts as a resist. how neat is that????? i just knew as soon as i saw tim's card that these pinecones would give the perfect hint of winter forest outside the window!!

all of the stuff needed for tim's tags can be found on my website too!!

i want to make another one with a few "whiffies" if i have time......

i would love to hear what y'all think!!
