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.

Precious Bear


Hi! I have a new card today! It's this precious bear for a newborn baby boy. For the layout of the card I was inspired by FTHS sketch Nr. 114. To make a border of the image (FTHS digi stamp) I used the beautiful die set from Nellie's multi Frame's. The stripes in background are done by embossing and washi tape. The leaves and flowers are done by dies and punches. 
I colored the image with watercolors and watercolor pencils - b.t.w. my favourite technique, since I love painting as well.

This is a birthday card for friend who turns 50. I found the text inside perfectly fitting with the image from FTHS, therefore I used it. For the layout I got inspired by sketch challenge Nr. 113 at FTHS.

  Text inside:
"They say that life just begins at 50
Having fulfilled all your responsibilities, 
you can now put your legs up 
and sip your Margarita! 
Have a wonderful Birthday!!!"
