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.

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.

Hi, hope you all are doing well. It's Saturday and a time for another card. Even though we spent last night dancing on the ball and I'm terribly sleepy today, I did it. This time I made a Valentine card with this lovely Snowman from Faith Skrdla (FTHS) and I used it for two challenges - the sketch challenge Nr. 137 and February Free Stamp of the Month challenge on FTHS. For the background I used the brown rosy pattern paper from DCWV. The diagonal stripe is dry embossed with butterfly motiv (Die Sire). For the big heart I used the wonderful dies from Nellie's Frames and the small heart is done with the punch from Crelando. And finally, the weeds are done with the die from Sizzix.

Hi, I hope you all had a nice Saturday! It took me a while until I made the card for the last FTHS challenge Nr. 136, especially because I wasn't sure which image to choose. I wanted to make a Valentine card, but then I found this beautiful background paper and immediately I saw the bunch of tulips on that! Then I had a card done in few minutes :-) and I like the soft, spring mood of it. What do you think?

Hi, today I had a busy day creating cards (not only) and preparing photo tutorial for one creative magazine. This card I made for challenge Nr. 135 at FTHS, where I used the sketch and also the twist (Add some nature). I used the image with flowers and birds. Valentine is coming, so I felt this image will be right for this time of the year. I colored it with professional watercolors. For the background I used designer papers from Docrafts and I embellished the card with small red hearts. No fancy dies or embossing folders today :-)

Hello! I hope you had a nice day. We've got plenty of snow here, so we spent a day skiing out in the mountains with kids :-) Now I found a while to create this card for the latest FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 134. Since I used this cute free image from FTHS, I'd like to enter also the Free Stamp of the Month January Challenge.
About the card: I used the black card blank, so I matted the image with black paper as well. I embossed the background white paper with Houndstooth pattern (from ProvoCraft) and I colored the image with watercolor pencils to match colors of washi tape I used for embellishment - black, grey, orange and teal. The final touch I added with bakers twine. The size of the card is app. 10,5 x 14,5 cm.
This card can be used for Birthday or Valentine occasion.

Hi! We've got a snowy day here today - finally we can ski :-) I'd like to share a birthday card I made for FTHS challenge Nr. 133. I was thinking how to combine the sketch challenge with a twist and I came to this solution. Black-red-white are my favorites, so I pulled a black-print designer paper (Docrafts) and the only image I could imagine was this beautiful Mixed Bouquet from FTHS. Did you realize it? I just cut off the vase and added some more flowers to the bottom part... sorry, Faith ;-) I made one card with colored flowers - again in the tones of the card and the second without coloring. That one I like more :-) What do you think?

Happy New Year to all of you! Thank you for stopping here, in my small creative world.
Today I want to share this simple, elegant card for expecting mothers. I created it by spirelli technique. I used a special metallic thread for stitching and 3 shiny flowers for embellishment. I wanted to get an elegant card, so I decided for simple red-white combination. Size of the card is 13,5 x 13,5 cm and you can get it in my e-shop.
