Welcome

Welcome to my page full of handmade greeting cards. I love crafting of all kinds - from paperwork, scrapbooking, drawing, painting, to any kind of needlework (visit my other blogs with those themes, too - left sidebar).
Cardmaking is a special form of crafting - whether we're wishing someone well, inviting them to a party, saying thank you or just celebrate a holiday, there's plenty of occasions in life where a handmade card says it all. However, it might happen that new ideas can be hard to come by. That's where I'd like to help. Just make a coffee, sit down and look to my page for some ideas, inspiration or step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy the time! And if you like it, you are invited to my "Circle of Friends".

Vitajte na mojej stránke zameranej na ručne vyrábané papierové pozdravy. Venujem sa rôznej umeleckej tvorbe - od papiera, scrapbookingu, kreslenia, maľovania, až po šitie, pletenie, či vyšívanie (navštívte aj moje iné blogy s týmito témami - bočný panel vpravo). Tvorba pohľadníc je špeciálny druh umenia - či už chcete niekomu popriať veľa zdravia, pozvať na party, poďakovať alebo osláviť sviatky, vždy je dosť príležitostí v živote, kedy to všetko môžete vyjadriť ručne vyrobeným pozdravom. Občas sa však môže stať, že nový nápad neprichádza. Tu by som chcela pomôcť. Urobte si kávu, pohodlne sa usaďte a pozrite si moje stránky, nájdite nové nápady, inšpirácie alebo krok za krokom návody. Ak sa vám tu bude páčiť, ste vítaní v kruhu mojich priateľov.

Daisies

This is more or less universal greeting card, which can be used for many occasions, eg. Birthday, Mother's Day, or just to say Hello. Even to thank someone. I created this motif by myself, the swirl and open flowers are knife cut, the full flowers are done by commercial punches. 

Challenges:
I want to enter the challenge Nr. 362 at Sketch Saturday, I turned the sketch 90°.

Black 'n' White Birthday Card


Today I decided to go for a traditional black and white combination. OK, with a bit of red ;-) I used the sketch Nr. 110 at FTHS. The twist was - Use 3  of something... I've got 3 mice (image from FTHS "Baloon Ride"), 3 red gems, 3 flags. 
Happy Birthday!

Dnes som sa rozhodla pre tradičnú čierno-bielu kombináciu. OK, s trošičkou červenej ;-) 
Využila som skicu zo súťaže č.110 na stránkach FTHS. Alternatíva bola - Použiť niečo tri krát... Takže máme 3 myši (obrázok z FTHS "Baloon Ride"), 3 červené kamienky, 3 vlajočky.
Krásne narodeniny!

Graduating with Loving Owl



This is my fresh card I made for FTHS challenge Nr. 109. I used the stamp of "Owl Love" because I think it is irresistibly  CUTE!!! The card itself is very simple today, I just made the diploma by tearing a piece of white office paper and smudged the edges with charcoal. The borders are made by sewing machine and the red star dust by a small punch (Crelando). 

Sketch109

Toto je moja najnovšia pohľadnica, ku ktorej ma inšpirovala súťaž č. 109 na stránkach FTHS. Použila som digitálnu pečiatku "Owl Love", pretože sa mi zdá neodolateľne roztomilá. Pohľadnica sama o sebe je veeeľmi jednoduchá, akurát diplom som vyrobila z kúska kancelárskeho papiera, ktorý som obtrhala do tvaru malého obdĺžnika a okraje som začadila nie ohňom, ale hnedým uhlíkom. Okraje som prešila na šijacom stroji a červený "hviezdny prach" urobíla vysekávačkou (Crelando).
