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.

Christmas Tags


Hi! Christmas is over, but I still have couple of projects unpublished. Here I want to show you how easily you can use your scraps from other projects. I got a leftover stripe of recy-paper, which I cut in equal parts and folded half. Then I searched a bit in my box with clear stamps and found 3 perfectly matching winter images. I stamped them and colored with watercolors. Just the snowman is colored with acrylic - to be visibly white. Then I made a hole in the corner with punches and bound with white bakers twine.

Challenges:


77th Birthday


This is a card to 77th birthday. I used the designer paper from Docrafts and series of cutting dies - rosette, leaves, flowers from Sizzix, number from Marianne Designs and butterfly from Crelando. The stripe of beige paper is embossed with embossign folder (polka dot) from Xcut.
I embellished the card with twine bow, crochet ribbon and liquid pearls.

Challenges:
Cute Cards Thursday - Nr. 466, Florals
Inky Chicks - Nr. 79, Happy Birthday




Here is the gift box with roses (Marianne Designs) for my Birthday card....


Congratulations!


Hi! Graduation is the moment every student can't wait for. What about this card to congratulate some successful Graduate? I love this cute die of owl from Aurelie. I made a cut out from black cardstock, which I smudged with white chalk and added google eyes. I combined it with the die of book, which I cut twice - one from black and one from white paper. The layout is from "Freshly Made Sketches" challenge Nr. 276 which I want to enter.

Happy Birthday


Hi! I've just finished this card for 60th birthday celebration. I used the image from FTHS which I colored with professional watercolors. For the layout I found an inspiration in the latest sketch challenge at FTHS (see picture below) - I just turned the layout by 90° and used two mashes instead of stripes (Marianne Design die). I embellished the card with pink and white flowers and with satin ribbon. Number 60 I made with Marianne Design die, as well.

Valentine Card


Hi everybody! Yesterday evening I realized that Faith is back on track and I'm really happy for her. Welcome back, Faith and I wish you all the best. I missed you and made almost none new card since last August.
So, I couldn't wait any minute and immediately made a card for the latest sketch challenge Nr. 161 at FTHS.
I used the background paper I bought last week in our local store and combined it with an embossing folder pattern from Darice - which, btw matched perfectly to the paper pattern and the sketch. The image from FTHS progressive monthly challenge is colored with watercolor pencils and embellished with pink glass gems.
