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.

Birdbrain Graduates


May is coming and soon after that summer holiday and for some guys finally - Graduation!!! Therefore such topic today :-)
For this card I used the current FTHS layout Nr. 107 and the image of Birdbrain Graduate. This time I used mostly blue-white combination with a touch of yellow for the Birdbrain. The image is colored with watercolor pencils and brush. The sentiment says: "Congratulations".
The next day, I created the second card with the same motif and color combination, which you can see below :-)

Prichádza máj a potom čoskoro letné prázdniny a pre niektorých konečne - Promócie!!! Preto dnes táto téma :-)
Obrázok pochádza z dielne ilustrátorky Faith Skrdla (FTHS) a vymaľovaný je akvarelovými pastelkami.

Best Wishes Card

Warbler and Magnolias, Birthday Card, 10,5 x 15 cm

Hi! Few days ago I've got this awesome new image from FTHS and I couldn't wait to use it. The challenge Nr. 105 at FTHS seemed to be just perfect for it. It was a sketch with a funny twist - to make it fast :-) So I did! I colored the image with watercolor pencils and water brush in less than 3 minutes (this technique is great, you don't have to wash your brush and the result looks like true watercolor painting), then I embossed two of the matting papers, cut out the image, sentiment and glued all nicely together! 
With a telephone call from my hubby it took me about 20 minutes. I always spend a lot of time thinking about papers and colors, matching them together. This time, thanks to color of magnolia on the image, it was clear. Violet or violet :-) I love that color anyhow, therefore it was very fast this time...

Material and supplies:
cardstocks - white, 2 shades of violet
embossing folder - flowers (Xcut)
other - BigShot, paper cutter, glue, scissors

Good Luck Card


Hi, I hope you had a nice Easter holiday and you enjoyed such a nice weather as we had. I created a new card for FTHS challenge Nr. 104 and I used the stamp of the month April.
The papers are from Provo Craft (Azure Blue Collection) and I embossed the background one by myself. The image is made in 3D effect. I added the leaf from another stamp of FTHS (Lucky Birdbrain Chick). I embellished the image with glass gems and the sentiment says "Good luck!". 
Thanks for watching :-)

Easter Card / Bookmark


Hi! I'd like to share this tall Easter card with you. I was thinking how to use the latest sketch by FTHS and the first thing which came to my mind was a bookmark. So I decided for a tall card, which can be easily transformed to a bookmark by cutting off the back side :-)

I won and earned Top3 in this challenge :-)
