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.

Wedding Card

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

On this wedding card I've combined two challenges: I used the layout of Sketch Saturday challenge Nr. 349 and the color combination from Crafty Ribbons Challenge Nr. 113: Black and White. I used a combination of embossed white papers with black matting, stamp and sentiment (Congratulation to wedding).

 
(SK): K vytvoreniu tejto pohľadnice som sa nechala inšpirovať skicou súťaže na Sketch Saturday uvedenou hore. Celá pohľadnica je vyrobená z bieleho papiera, jemne doplnená čiernym podkladom, ktorý elegantne lemuje obrázok nevesty a ženícha. Pozadie, ako aj hlavný obázok sú embosované kvetinovým a srdiečkovým motívom. Zvlnená vlajočka s nápisom vystupuje do popredia, pod ňou je saténová stužka. Vľavo na obrázku sú 3 perličky. 
Kartička vo vnútri pohľadnice je biela, zasunutá do ozdobných rožkov.


Material and Supplies:
cardstock - white, black
dies and punches - border punch (Heyda), mini corner punches for inside card (ek), leaves (Marianne Designs)
embossing folders - hearts (Xcut), flowers (docrafts)
silicone stamps - Love (Viva decor)

Easter Bunny


This is my Easter card I made for FTHS challenge Nr. 99. I used both - the sketch and the twist. The lovely stamp is an Easter Bunny digi stamp from FTHS, papers and washi tape are from Crelando. The sentiment is an Easter wish in Slovak language :-)

Daffodils on Easter Card



This is an Easter card I created as a part of gift set for a friend. I've found an inspiration on a tissue I used for candle decoupage (see below). There was a beautiful image of daffodils which I freely drew with pencil and pen on a sheet of paper and then I made a digital stamp of that. That is the main motif of today's Easter card. The yellowish flowers I made by myself as well - from the white cardstock with the help of stamping inks and cutting dies (Sizzix). For the layout I used the sketch of challenge Nr. 348 on Sketch Saturday in which I take part as well :-)  




The card has to be nicely packed, so I made a gift box for it. That one you can see below. I cut out the uncolored digi image and combined with the same papers and green paper ribbon as the card itself. 



Material and Supplies:
cardstocks - green, white, patterned papers - yellow and green
dies - frame (Xcut), flowers and leaves (Sizzix)
digi stamps - daffodils and sentiments (mine)
other supplies - green paper ribbon, stamp ink - yellow and orange, paper cutter, glass gems, glue, scissors, craft knife, cutting board, foam dots, ...

Easter Card


It is such nice weather today! It feels like Easter is coming despite the white (melting) snow. Sun is shining and it's really warm there. So I decided to make a card for Easter. It's coming soon anyhow :-)
For this card I used the challenge sketch Nr. 97 from FTHS. I matched the blue patterned papers (downloads from Docrafts) with pink and white. In the same color combination I colored the cute image from FTHS.

For You


This is a card in red-white color combination I have created for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 96. The sentiment in circle says "For You", it is a handmade embellishmed (the tWiSt of challenge).

Card for Baby Boy

 

This is a card I have created for my friend and her baby boy. I love baby shoes on greeting cards! Unfortunately, I didn't have the shoe die, so I drew mine own stencil, transferred the mirror images on the sheet of cardstock, cut out by craft knife and embossed the small flowers on it manually. I embellished them with a white bakers twine and glued on the white base. For the big flower, I layered three sizes of daisies to complete the layout.

Challenges:

Material and supplies:
white card blank
cardstocks - pastel blue, white and the one with dots
dies and punches - 3 sizes of daisy (S, M, L), swirl, small flowers (Crelando set), butterfly (Crelando)
embossing folder - flowers
other - bakers twine, liquid pearls silver, flower stems, glue, paper cutter, BigShot, scissors, craft knife, cutting board, ...
