Tag with deer and pine tree

This tag was made for the 12 tags of Christmas (2017) at the Funkie Junkie blog. This one is the interpretation of Linda's 9th tag.

You can find Linda's tag here.

If you hopped on the Funkie Junkie blog you could see that Linda used a large Jumbo manila tag (8x4") but I used a 6x3" tag. So I had less space to create :-)

And since I don't have yet Tim's Winter Wonderland Thinlits die set, I used the Prancing Deer instead.

And of course, there are other differences but you couldn't deny the similarities to the original tag :-)

I covered all my cut-outs with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

Christmas card with large snowflake

Here is my second card that I made for the 12 tags of Christmas (2017) of The Funkie Junkie blog. This card is the interpretation of the week #8. 

You can find Linda's beautiful tag here.

As you can see, I changed some colours, and instead of the vellum, I used a plastic sheet that I embossed with the snowflake pattern embossing folder. I attached that plastic sheet to the corrugated board with two brads.

What I used:

MFT Stamp, Snow Globe Sentiments

MFT Die-Namics, Stitched Fishtail Flags

half pearl, brads

Ranger Distress and Distress Oxide inkpads

glitter stickles

plastic sheet


I hope you like it! Happy crafting!

Art Impressions' Santa on a tag

Yesterday I posted a tag with the Art Impressions's Santa. And as I promised here I am with another tag with the same image and with some slight changes.

Now this time I coloured the images with Ranger Distress and Zig Clean markers. Here I cut out the images and adhered to a polka dot paper. I also stamped the "ho-ho-ho" from Tim Holtz Crazy Talk set.

With this tag I would like to join the challenge of the Art Impressions: Tag it!

My drawing - Panni

Eszter, my daughter always had some critical remarks about the girl stamps I bought, and which I loved and used. She complained about their too big heads and their too widely spaced eyes. 

So I decided to draw a girl which can please her. 

The inspiration for my drawing was Eszter, of course.

I named my drawing after my beloved grandmother, I used her nickname - Panni - for my little girl. 

And here, I can show you my first card with my Panni.  (I'm sorry I couldn't colour it as I wanted to because I could print it with an ink-jet printer since I hadn't got laser printer. I was afraid of smudging the lines.) 

And if you ask me, whether Eszter liked my drawing or not, I can reassure you that she liked it very much :-)

With my card I would like to join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: It's a stich up!


Tag with Santa by Art Impressions

I'm sorry for being silent for a while. Actually, it didn't mean that I didn't work, I just had no time for blogging. But I'm back in the saddle :-) and hopefully, I can show up more often here.

Today I brought you a tag with a lovely Santa by Art Impressions.

Art Impressions: Holiday Wishes set (4516)

The images were coloured with Copic Sketch markers and I'm working on another tag with slight differences.

With this tag, I would like to join the challenge of the Art Impressions: Tag it!

Autumn tag with MFT Jumping with joy stamp

Here is a little tag with a lovely girl by the MFT. I made this for the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp where the theme is: Thanks/Thanksgiving.

I coloured my images with Faber-Castell Polychromos and Caran d'Ache Pablo Picasso pencils. For the fallen leaves I applied masking. 

And let me show you my photo of dead leaves when the first chill arrived in Luxembourg.

Vintage white Victorian carollers

This is my second inspirational piece for the November challenge of the Country View Challenges blog. The theme is: Stencils. So I stencilled snowflakes onto my sheet music cardstock.

The Victorian Carollers are brought back!!! It means that this Bigz die is again available at Sizzix, so I bet, this lovely couple will be very popular this winter. 

Tim also has a new lamp post die, but I used my old one with the old design. 

What I used:

Sizzix Bigz Die, Victorian Carolers by Tim Holtz (658764)

Sizzix Bigz Die, Lamppost by Tim Holtz (657469) or the new Lamp Post (662428)

snowflake stencil

Ranger Texture Paste, Opaque Matte

Ranger Distress ink pad, Brushed Corduroy
