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.

Graduation!


Hi! Today I want to share my latest card I created according the sketch challenge Nr. 153 at FTHS. I used pepers from Docrafts and digi image from FTHS. I combined serious black with vivid red color which should be for symbol of red diploma for best students. I dont know how it is in other countries, but here, only the best students get university diplom in red plates, the others in blue :-)

Hamlet PigWit in the Planter


Hi! Today I finished my new card with Hamlet PigWit. I kept it simple, as the sketch in the challenge at FTHS Nr. 152. I colored the image with combination of color markers and watercolors. I intended also to try calligraphy writing, but I ended up with a stamp.
I want to enter also the monthly challenge at FTHS - Free Stamp of the Month May.

Thank you Card


Hi! It's still Sunday, half an hour before midnight and I'm catching up with the latest FTHS challenge to be closed soon. But I did it, even though I had a BUSY weekend - too many homeworks to help with, finishing some painting for a customer, taking care of kids, home, etc. So, I created this elegant purple card according the sketch in FTHS challenge Nr. 151. I took the image from digi stamp Spring Medley and flipped. For the background I used two complementary designer papers from my stash and joined them with the purple ribbon. The sentiment "Thank you" comes from free gift in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

Baby Bear in Pink


 Hi! I'd love to share my latest card I created for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 150. I used scraps of beautiful pink paper together with bear image from FTHS. I colored the image with professional watercolors, cut out the moon with star and layered on top of the image with 3D foam dots. I smudged the border of the image with purple chalk. Then I embellished the card with baby feet dies (Marianne Design) and added 3 purple gems to the right bottom. That's it. The card blank is of purple color - the same as matting of the circle image. Size of the card: 10,5 x 14 cm.
