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.

Welcome Baby!


Hi! This is the second card I finished right now. It's for a newborn baby and the image is again from FTHS. I did it for the latest FTHS challenge, Nr. 149. I colored the image with professional watercolors and for background I used the papers from Crelando. The feet dies are from Marianne Design.

Colorful Flowers


Hi, how are you? Today I made a card with a Free of the month stamp from FTHS - this beautiful flower stamp. I printed it 3 times and made a layered decoupage image set into the ornamental frame. I colored the image with waterbased markers. For the background I used the red embossed paper which nicely complements the image. I enter the Monthly challenge at FTHS with this card.

Wedding card


Hi! This time I'm fast enough for a weekly sketch challenge at FTHS :-) I created this lovely, elegant card for wedding and decided to keep it all clean and white, besides the image. That one I colored with soft watercolor pencils and water brush. I used wonderful heart dies from Nellie's choice and a beautiful embossing folder I have found yesterday in my latest issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine (May 2016). The embossed border I combined with a decorative borders which I made with daisy border punch. All that I enhanced with a thin snow-white twine. I hope you'd like the result as much as I do ;-)

Wedding set "Pink"


Hello! I would like to share my new set of wed card and a photo box . It's all handmade including flowers. I made them by swirl cutting of pink paper by decorative scallop scissors. For other decor I used various dies, border punch, etc.


Crayons



"Some Friends are worth melting for!" - a slight modification of lovely quote of Olaf (snowman from Disney movie "Frozen") transmitted from snow to crayons :-))) I cut out these color crayons from scrap cardstocks, "wrapped" with parchment paper and decorated with black labels. Then I made the real melted scripts with crayons heated by the candle. Here the outcome!

Flowers for Mother


Good morning! Weekend has just started and I would like to share the creation I made last evening. I played around with latest  FTHS sketch challenge (Nr. 147) and this is the result. I love this elegant image with daffodils. I combined it with scrap papers from my box and colored in matching tones. Then I enhanced the card with green paper ribbon (this I haven't used since a while - what a nice change :-)) I embossed the background dark yellow paper with oval embossing folder from the April issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine (Nr. 155) and that's it!

Happy Birthday


Hi! How are you? I had a truly busy week and weekend... Plenty of long meetings at work during week and today I was moving my craftroom. I almost did not catch the end of challenge... This is a really last minute card I would like to share with you. I used the sketch from Challenge Nr. 142 at FTHS and  the image of Warbler. I colored it with professional watercolors. For stitching I used my SewEasy tool set and the washi tape (Crelando) for bottom stripe. The sentiment is from ScrapBerry's stamp set "My Little Bear".

Party Invitation


Hi! I hope you all had a nice day today. After a busy week I found some time for myself. While my kids had been in the movie, I created this lovely 1st piece of Party invitation. Of course, for their friends :-)
I used the layout from the latest FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 141 and the Free image of the month March from FTHS. I would like to enter both challenges there - Sketch challenge and Monthly challenge.

The invitation is of postcard size (11 x 15 cm). For the background I used my old stash paper (from DCWV). I embossed the stripe with the embossing folder from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I stitched the image around with zig-zag pattern on the sewing machine. I embellished the card with 3 yellow buttons.
