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.
For Muse challenge Nr. 102 - I've got an inspiration from heart, embossed flowers - I used 3D flower instead and the sketch. A digi stamp of filigree heart was drawn by me. If you like it, bellow you can get your free copy for your personal use.
Inspiration for this card came from FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 94. I created a Birthday card with saying "Beautiful Birthday" and the cutest stamp of little kittie playing with the heart (from FTHS). It is my favorite and often used stamp. So, I did this card in color combo light yellow-lilac-light green and white. For embossing I used my brand new folder from Marianne Designs which arrived today :-))) The little hearts are embossing by folder from Xcut and colored with yellowish stamp ink to complement other papers.
I used the Bugaboo stamp called Ornament Elf. Yes, originally it was for Christmas, but I made a clown of him :-) The sentiment says "All the best" in Slovak language and the card is for a 4-year old boy.
For that I created this cute card for birthday of loved one with saying: "I love you with all my butt, I would say Heart, but my butt is bigger" and I used this lovely digi-stamp of eating mouse from Bugaboo. And yes, say "Cheese!".
Interesting color combo, not easy to combine, but I used the Button bear stamp by Bugaboo and placed this little fella into the grass with flowers and butterflies. So, look closely and you'll find all colors from the combo. The sentiment says: "All the best" in my language.
I used a stamp of cupcake as a top level of the 3 stage cake and all those colors from the picture. The swirls on the embossed background should remind balloons and all those flowers are like MnMs around the cake on the photo. I used real beads for flower centers. Sentiment on my card says "Beautiful Birthday" in my language.

I WON THE 3RD PLACE AT BUGABOO MONDAY CHALLENGE !!!!
I used this sketch to create this lovely card for Graduation. There is written in Slovak (my native) language "To the successfully finished studies" or by other words Congratulation to your Graduation. I used combination of white - yellow and blue. The background paper is embossed like a wood and I added the hat to the Bugaboo stamp of owl :-)
