Simon Says STAMP-tember blog hop!

Today I have a holidays inspired ATC for you called "Is It Time". This is my entry into the Simon Says STAMP-tember blog hop which starts here and finishes here. Great prizes are up for grabs along the way!

I have used stamps from Tim Holtz - The Journey, and Christmas Miracle. I have white embossed the starts from the Christmas Miracle stamp on my base layer. On a piece of scrap Kaiser paper I have stamped the whole image in black archival ink. I tore a section out and slightly skewed this layer to reveal the white stars. The edges were inked in Tea Dye, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo distress inks, and the Santa was stamped on scrap and mounted on top of the base layer with glue dots for dimension.

I also stamped the calendar on scrap and punched out the '25' with a small circle punch, which I then layered on brown cardstock and cut out and re mounted over the base calendar - then added some dimensional magic to make it pop.

The clock and hands and the words were from 'the journey' stamps - I just cut out the words I wanted and dragged the edges across the rusty hinge ink pad. I made sure the o'clock hand was pointing toward the '25' on the calendar. A black kaiser rhinestone was holding my clock hands in place.

Thanks for stopping by!
