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.

Purple Heart


Hi, this is my latest stitched card with a beautiful heart motif in zentangle style. I used a thin sewing thread for the heart stitching and alike papers in the background and for flower.


Red Christmas


Here is the second experiment with pergamano, still without professional tools, just freehand drawing, an old sharp pen and needle. I just can't resist to try. Here I used my hole punch to create lace like holes.




Blue Christmas Card

Blue Christmas, 10 x 12 cm

Hi all, this is my very first experiment with pergamano technique. I'm just on the beginning, but I decided to try and try and to create beautiful paper laces :-) So, let me see, what's coming next...
For this card I used parchment paper, for embossing I used what I found at home - old ceramic pen (sharp enough to make thin lines), embossing tool I use for scrapbooking, needle and small scissors. Here I decided to get myself some better tool to create nice, crispy edges... it's on the way. From the wrong side I colored the image with water based markers and brush, the white areas I embossed with bigger embossing tool. To attach the parchment to the background I used transparent double-sided tape, but next time I'll try special Pergamano transparent liquid glue.

Birdbrain Christmas



Hi! Today I made this card using the free stamp of the month November from FTHS. I used the same image 3 times in row and created this cute birdie family. For the branch I used my punches and glitter glues.

Silver Christmas


 Hi! Today I want to share the Christmas card I created for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 126. I focused more on the sketch than twist (3D element), but the circle, the sentiment (Merry Christmas) and the embossed flower are on foam dots anyhow = 3D parts :-)
I wanted to make something gentle, clean, not very colorful and I decided to go with white today. And to add the glamour I used the silver and red to complement the look. This cute snowman comes from Faith (at FTHS) and I colored it with glitter pens. The silver mash in the background is stitched to the paper (no glue) and for branches I used Lea'bilites dies (www.leanecreatief.com).

Christmas Bear

Christmas Bear, 10,5 x 12,5 cm
 Hi! Today I want to share my newest creation - the Christmas card with the cute image of bear from FTHS. I used the sketch from challenge Nr. 125 at FTHS. I colored the image with watercolors and stitched to the background panels. Those are torn and machine stitched rectangles of "Cardmaking and Papercrafts" Christmas paper collection. I embellished the card with snowflakes (Marianne Design) and a decoupage flower (from the same CaP paper collection).
