Welcome

Hi! My name is Kika. Welcome to my page full of handmade greeting cards. I love crafting of all kinds - from scrapbooking, painting, to any kind of needlework (visit my other blogs, too - right 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!

Vitajte na mojej stránke zameranej na ručne vyrábané papierové pozdravy. Venujem sa rôznej umeleckej tvorbe - od scrapbookingu, 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 kávičku, pohodlne sa usaďte a pozrite si moje stránky, nájdite nové nápady, inšpirácie alebo krok za krokom návody. Nech sa páči.

Birthday Roses


Hi! Today I'd like to share my latest creation - a birthday card with a "Bugaboo Stamps" image of roses. I found a beautiful background paper in my stock which perfectly fits with the image which I colored in matching colors with watercolor pencils. The layout is from the latest "Stella Says Sketch" challenge Nr. 504 which I also want to enter. See the sketch below.

Happy Birthday


Hi! I've just finished this card for 60th birthday celebration. I used the image from FTHS which I colored with professional watercolors. For the layout I found an inspiration in the latest sketch challenge at FTHS (see picture below) - I just turned the layout by 90° and used two mashes instead of stripes (Marianne Design die). I embellished the card with pink and white flowers and with satin ribbon. Number 60 I made with Marianne Design die, as well.

Valentine Card


Hi everybody! Yesterday evening I realized that Faith is back on track and I'm really happy for her. Welcome back, Faith and I wish you all the best. I missed you and made almost none new card since last August.
So, I couldn't wait any minute and immediately made a card for the latest sketch challenge Nr. 161 at FTHS.
I used the background paper I bought last week in our local store and combined it with an embossing folder pattern from Darice - which, btw matched perfectly to the paper pattern and the sketch. The image from FTHS progressive monthly challenge is colored with watercolor pencils and embellished with pink glass gems.

Football Player's Birthday


Hi! I would like to share my birthday card I created for an 18-year old football player. Unfortunately, I don't have a stamp with football motive, therefore I drew the image with black ink by myself. For the flower I used the big daisy punch and the branch is done by Sizzix die. As for gift box, I used the embossing folder from Darice and Marianne Designs dies for numbers. The background paper is sewn by machine and smudged with green chalk.
