12 Tags of 2013 ....

.... as usual I'm a bit late with my tag, but well, it's still April and during the last few days I had gardening to do. Today it's just pouring and getting colder by the hour, so I created my tag.

This is for the Tim Holtz event *12 tags of 2013*

 I used a packing from a die for the dragon fly, works just as well as the "Clearly for Art" and it's almost always in the house ;)

My Tag has the number "5" instead of a "4",  because I will be giving this to a friend for "Bon Voyage", she's leaving for Thailand in May ;)

Here we go again on our bi-weekly challenge at Moo-Mania.
The theme is ..... well, what else?


A Moo is a little card sized 2.8 x 7.1 centimeters,
or approximately 1.1 x 2.8 inches.

Come on over and join in the fun, you can't imagine all the stuff that fits on that tiny little piece :)

Some little home decor ......

It was my turn to post a tutorial at My Sketch World. I decided to go for home decor, a lantern for our table on the terrace.

This is what I need for my creation:


Cardstock (Not to light!), Vellum, punch, dies, cord, pan pastel,
distress ink, water spritzer

I cut four templates with a Sizzix die; you can cut any shape,
 such as a rectangle, an arch, just anything!


I applied distress ink .....


.... and “spritzed and flicked” it with water …..


….. all dried up now!


I cut some “holes” into the top, you can use any die or punch,
such as flowers, snowflakes, circles etc.


I applied Pan Pastel to the vellum …..


….. punched circles …..


….. and glued them to the back of the template.


Now it’s time for the decoration. I cut a fence and as and
afterthought also some grass,


which I glued together …..


….. and adhered to the template, creating a little “belly”!


I fixed all four templates with a tool (clamp) and punched
the holes. This way they will all be on the right position!


Done ;)


I added the birds and the butterflies (also an afterthought) ….


….. and tied all templates together with a cord. I always use a pen
or something similar in between, this way my “hinges”
can still move and I don’t ruin the sides of my templates!


A little present for a loved one, a little take along for a friend,
or just put it on the mantel or on the terrace in Summer,
that`s where I keep mine ;)


Can’t wait for night to come ……


Thanks so much for following me through the journey of 18 pictures.
 I am still a beginner with tutorials!
