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!

At The Funkie Junkie blog there's a challenge called 12 tags of Christmas. Until Christmas I have to make 12 tags using Linda's examples as motivations.

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

Ranger Archival ink pad, Coffee

half pearls

And I tried to take a photo from another angle:

Little hanging with dragon and princess

When my daughter saw the little dragon card what I made for my nephew's birthday, first she wanted to keep it, but then she let me do another one just for her :-)

So she chose a bigger dragon and a little princess from the MFT Magical Dragon stamp set... and after a little discussion, I recommended her a little hanging instead of a card. She accepted it.

Here is a close-up:

Luckily she liked it and now this little image is on the wall of her room.

The other MFT stamp set that I used is: Fairy Happy 

And with this card I would like to join the Color Challenge 80 of the MFT Card Challenges blog.

Masculine name banner

Here is an interesting thing about my family. My husband's name contains all the first letters of our names. We are a family of four - of course, I count our little dog, Rozi in it! -and my husband name is Imre.

IMRE: Imre, Monika, Rozi, Eszter

It was a few months ago when I accidentally realised this and in the same time, a name banner came to my mind. I just kept this idea to implement it for my hubby's name-day, for today!

What I used:

Sizzix Framelits Plus Die, Banners (660836)

Sizzix Sizzlits Alphabet Die, Antiqua by Brenda Walton (658337)

Stampers Anonymous, Dots&Floral (CMS220) by Tim Holtz

Stampers Anonymous, Plaid&Nordic (CMS243) by Tim Holtz

Stampers Anonymous, Stripes&Holiday (CMS281) by Tim Holtz

Ranger Distress ink pads (Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso)

Ranger Archival ink pad (Cornflower Blue)

Idea-Ology Loop pins by Tim Holtz

We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Big Bite

Tonic Studios Paper Distresser by Tim Holtz

Ide-Ology Fasteners, Antique Finishes by Tim Holtz

I attached the banners to each other with loop pins.

By accident, I punched holes to the last banners so I put fasteners to the unwanted holes. 

Happy name-day for my hubby! Happy Guy Fawkes Day for my English friends! Happy Sunday for you!

Masculine card with a car - Sheena Douglass The Delivery

Sheena Douglass car stamp with this text was just perfect for a birthday card for my father-in-law. And now, because the birthday was yesterday, I can tell you that the recipient was very pleased with it!

But be careful! This stamp is huge! The sizes of my old Sizzix rectangle dies were not enough for this stamp to create a layered card, so I had to order extra large dies from the Spellbinders :-)

The name of this stamp: Remember When Series, The Delivery (A6)
