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.

Tall and Skinny Card



I made this Christmas card for Mojo Monday challenge 373 - Tall and Skinny. I've found this challenge close to its ending on Sunday night and I rushed to make a card! So, I posted it in the last hours of the challenge :-)

I used designer paper from Docrafts (Champagne Christmas Collection). The layered poinsettia flower is embellished with one bigger pearl, the rest with small pearls.

Folded Tree

This is a remake of my older card. I used the basic motif of folded tree and added some embellishments as stars, snowflake and layer of "snow" which glows in dark. The basic card is blue with a white card inside. The card can is freely removable for any case :-)


Then I embellished the envelope with 3 white snowflakes.

And this is how I made the Folded Tree:
1. cut the semi-circle
2. divide a line in 4 parts
3. fold in 1/4 of the line as on pic1
4. fold to align the straight sides together - pic2
5. turn around and fold back the top layer of the tree

Christmas Stars

This card is available in my e-shop
Pohľadnica je dostupná v mojom e-shope

This is a Christmas card with motif of stars which I decoupaged from the old decoupage paper. I glued them on the cardstock and used as an embellishment. For the background I used the embossed (Sizzix folder) recycled cardstock. I used the white acrylic color and brown stamping ink to get an altered look. The red stripe in the middle is also embossed (Sizzix). Finally I added couple of smaller white stars and the sentiment. The same star motif I used for the inside card.

Toto je vianočná pohľadnica s motívom hviezdičiek, ktoré som získala zo starého decoupage papiera. Nalepila som ich na výkres a použila ako hlavný motív. Na pozadie som použila embosovaný recyklovaný papier. Na dosiahnutie "starého" vzhľadu som použila bielu akrylovú farbu a hnedý pečiatkový atrament. Červený pás v strede je tiež embosovaný (Sizzix). Nakoniec som pridala zopár rôzne veľkých bielych hviezdičiek a nadpis "Merry Christamas". Ten istý motív hviezdy som použila aj na vnútornú kartičku.

Retro Christmas

This card is available in my e-shop

I used only two kinds of heavyweight cardstock for this card - white and recycled. Then I used a snowflake embossing folder (Sizzix) for background, cutting die for big snowflake (Xcut), border punch and regular punch for small snowflakes. For the sentiment in front I used cling stamps and handwriting, the final touch I added with twine, white acrylics and brown stamping ink.

Na túto pohľadnicu som použila len dva druhy tvrdého papiera s vyššou gramážou - biely a recyklovaný. Na pozadie s vločkami som využila embosovaciu kapsu, na veľkú vločku vyrezávaciu šablónu (Xcut). Okrem toho som použila okrajovú raznicu (cezmína) a obyčajnú raznicu na snehové vločky. Nápis som urobila ručne, doplnila pečiatkami a celkový vzhľad som dokončila bielou šnúrkou, akrylovou farbou a hnedou pečiatkovou farbou.
