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.

Beach Mandala

Hi! How are you today? I bring you a new card which I created for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 158. I picked the free image "Sun, waves and flip-flops" from FTHS shop, which I colored with markers and hand stitched around. I used beautiful designer paper (old stash) which perfectly matches with the embossed background. As triple element I used the green-yellow flowers with the green gem in their centre.
I intended to create some light, optimistic summer card and I like the outcome. Thanks for such a nice free image, Faith.

For a Girl

Hello! I'd like to share my latest creation today - a gift box for photos and DVD.
For the background I used a designer paper with a vintage motif of Paris, which I sew on the white lace border. The pram die is from Marianne Design and rose leaves from Sizzix. The size of box is 13 x 18 x 1,5 cm, so plenty of space for pictures. DVD is attached to the cover and pictures to the bottom of the box by satin ribbon.

Sweet Baby - remake

 Hi! I would like to share my remake of the older card I created 2-3 years ago. I drew the image on watercolor paper at that time and used for a small, 10,5 x 10,5 cm card. This was done in my cardmaking beginner times, so I had none of the fancy professional tool as today. All shapes were done by cutting as well as flower - see the image.

Now I disassembled the card, glued on the thick 300 gsm card blank and embellished with leaves, feather, satin ribbon and baby blue flower. There is the difference!

Ice Cream

Hello! How are you? Today I made a card for the latest FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 157. For this layout I used the image "Ice Cream Lineup" and the sentiment from image "Cupcake Lineup", which I re-arranged to fit in circle. For the background I used free download papers from Docrafts (ice-cream-sundae-part1 and part2) - I like the sugar sprinkle pattern which perfectly fits to the top ice cream image :-) I colored the images with professional watercolors, watercolor pencils and color markers. I embellished the card with glitters.


I would like to add this card also to the monthly challenge at FTHS - Free Stamp of the Month June 2016.

Ice-cream for Any Day

Hello everybody! Today I share a very simple card with you which I made for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 156. Such a simple sketch, but for me it was a challenge. Several times I put the card aside not knowing what to use for stripes. Then I decided for something unusual, as cross-stitching. Therefore a pink check background paper seemed to me as a perfect match. I stitched it around borders with sewing machine and then cross-stitched three stripes with red thread (for making holes I used the SewEasy tool - great toy by the way :-)). At the end I colored the image with complementing colors and matted with red circle. The result is an elegant CAS card suitable for any occasion. I like it, and I hope you as well ;-)

There is one more challenge I would like to enter with this card - Monthly challenge at FTHS - Free stamp of the Month June 2016

Thank you Card

 Hi! Today I made my most colorful card ever :-) I wanted to make something for my son's teacher as a Thank you card to the end of school year. I looked for some typical school motif and this background paper just caught my eyes. For the layout I was inspired by FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 155 and I picked one of the images from "Back to school" collection. I colored the image with watercolor pencils, for the background I used papers from Crelando. The sentiment says "Thank you!". I'd like to enter the challenge Nr. 155 at FTHS.

Flower Bouquet

Hi! After few days off I'm back again with a newest card with an image from FTHS. I colored it with color markers. For the vase I used the watercolor pencil. Since I wanted to keep this card simple, I used the white background - just embossed with dots. I fussy cut image and glued on top. I completed the drawing with matching colors of washi tape. 
I want to enter the sketch challenge Nr. 154 at FTHS.
