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.

Best Wishes with Bugaboo Bird

I did this card for two parallel challenges.

Happy Birthday


Red Heart

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.

Birthday Greetings

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.

The quote I used for inside of the card:
"If there ever comes a day
when we can't be together,
keep me in your Heart.
I'll stay there Forever."
-Winnie the Pooh-

Material and supplies:
cardstocks - white, lilac, green (Crelando)
designer paper - the stack III (DCWV)
punches and embossing folders - DF3410 Extra (Marianne Designs), Small Polka Hearts (Xcut), corner punch (Crelando)

Bugaboo 5th B-day: Day7

Today is a last day of Bugaboo challenge series and I chose the topic "Cotton Candy": Use Flock and the colors pink and yellow

For that I picked this week's free stamp "Rainy Day Bear"

The quote for inside of the card:
"Life isn't about waiting for the STORM to pass,
it's about learning to DANCE in the RAIN!"

I'd like to use this card as a birthday card for a friend.
