Simon Says Keep It Clean and Simple

I’m still sticking with my baby cards and this one is quite clean and simple so it’s perfect for SSS Wednesday Challenge for this week. This card is meant for a little baby girl (if you couldn't realise that from all the pink) but does not have a sentiment on it, so it could be used as card for a newborn or for baptism of the little one. I used my all time favourite background stamp – HA Leafy Vines and stamped it with HA Mid-tone ink in Grape Juice that I stamped off one time. The Mama Bear (or Papa – I have no idea) and the little one were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and coloured with Fiber Castell watercolour pencils. I cut the image out with Nellie Snellen’s rectangular die and another one for the mat that I sponged with the same purple ink. I added small butterflies that I cut out of glitter paper in soft pink colour with a Memory Box die. Final touch was some clear Wink of Stella marker on the focal image. This is a very simple card, but I love the bright colours and the options that you have with it. 


Voščilnica je namenjena mali punčki (če vam roza barva tega še ni namignila), vendar na njej ni voščila, tako da se jo lahko uporabi kot voščilnico ob rojstvu deklice ali voščilnico za krst. Za ozadje sem uporabila eno mojih najljubših štampiljk HA Leafy Vines, ki sem jo odtisnila v HA Mid-tone blazinici v barvi Grape Juice, vendar sem najprej štampiljko odtisnila na ločen list papirja, tako da je na voščilnici odtis t.i. druge generacije. Medvedja mama (ali pa morda očka) in malčica sta odtisnjena z Versafine Onyx Black blazinico in pobarvana s Fiber Castell akvarelnimi barvicami. Sličico sem izrezala s pravokotno šablono Nellie Snellen's in jo nalepila na večji okvirček, ki sem ga osenčila z isto vijolično blazinico, kot sem jo uporabila na ozadju. Za konec sem dodala še par majhnih metuljčkov, izrezanih iz bleščečega papirja v nežno roza barvi, za kar sem uporabila Memory Box šablono in nekaj drobnih bleščic, ki jih za seboj pusti prozorni Wink of Stella marker na glavni sličici. Voščilnica je zelo preprosta, vendar so mi zelo všeč živahne barve in različne možnosti, ki jih voščilnica ponuja.

SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog: Animal Antics

This week's theme over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog is animals. I had to make some baby cards and this little guy is just perfect. I don’t have any stork image so I made a rope that helps the little bundle of joy reach the Earth in a safe way. Since he is coming down from heaven, I had to make some clouds, so masking and sponging from last card was perfect technique for that. For a bit of extra magic I added some stars following the little bear and a few little butterflies welcoming him. The sentiment is just perfect for this kind of scene. It says: Welcome to the world!


Tema tega tedna na Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog so živali. Potrebovala sem nekaj voščilnic za novorojenčke, tako da je bil tale mali medo perfektna izbira. Ker na žalost nimam nobene primerne sličice štorklje, sem naredila vrv, po kateri se tale štručka sreče varno spušča proti Zemlji. Ker je nekje na poti iz nebes, sem morala ustvariti nekaj oblakov, pri čemer sem se ponovno zatekla k maski domače izdelave in senčenju s svetlo modro barvo, o čemer sem pisala pri prejšnji voščilnici. Za nekaj dodane čarobnosti, sem odtisnila male zvezdice, ki medvedku sledijo in par majhnih metuljčkov, ki mu izrekajo dobrodošlico. Celotni ideji sledi tudi sporočilce, ki je odtisnjeno zraven.

Simon Says Happy Birthday Wednesday Callenge

Hi!

I had idea about this kind of card for some time now. Flying present for a birthday… sounds amazing! I don't have a balloon die yet so I just punched a couple of circles and hand cut the “tails” so they look more like balloons and I had place to wrap my embroidery floss around. I sponged the edges and swirled some colour over them to give them some dimension. I used Memento dewdrops in Dandelion, Bamboo Leaves, Danube Blue and Tangelo. Birthday wishes are stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black on the green balloon. Present was hand cut from blue and green cardstock and sponged like the balloons. Floss was coloured with Memento Dandelion ink and wrapped around to make the bow on top. I wrapped the floss around the tails of balloons and glued strings down behind the gift. Some balloons are glued direct to paper, others are raised up with foam adhesive like the gift. 


Takšno voščilnico sem imela v mislih že kar nekaj časa. Leteče darilo za rojstni dan... zveni odlično! Trenutno še nimam šablonice, ki bi izrezala obliko balona, tako da sem z luknjačem naredila nekaj okroglih izrezkov in nato izrezala »repke« balona, da delujejo malce bolj realno in da sem imela prostor za ovijanje vrvice. Robove sem osenčila in nato barvo zavrtela še preko balona tako, da sem izrezkom dodala nekaj globine. Uporabila sem male Memento solzice v barvah Dandelion, Bamboo Leaves, Danube Blue and Tangelo. Voščilo je na zelenem balončku odtisnjeno z VersaFine Onyx Black blazinico. Darilce sem izrezala kar s prosto roko iz modrega in zelenega kartona, robove ponovno osenčila in zlepila skupaj. Vrvico sem pobarvala z Memento Dandelion blazinico in jo ovila okoli darilca z mašnico na vrhu. Balone sem privezala skupaj in vrvice prilepila za darilcem, da je videti, kot da baloni paketek nosijo naokoli. Nekateri baloni so nalepljeni direktno na osnovo voščilnice, drugi so nalepljeni z lepljivimi blazinicami. 
  
I changed my white card base into sky scene with a cloud mask made from a couple of circle and heart punches glued together. I just placed my “new” mask where I wanted and lightly sponged the edges to make cloud silhouettes with Memento Summer Sky dewdrop. Right edge of my card looked a bit empty, since I managed to miss the centre of my card, so I cut a thin strip of white cardstock and sponged it with the same blue I used on the balloon and gift box and glued it on the edge. To soften the look I rounded top and bottom corner on the right side. I can’t go without some sparkle, so I added some Crystal Stickles to the green strip on the gift and Clear Wink of Stella all over the balloons. Perfect for anyone that is celebrating. You can change colours of balloons, use pattern paper or stamp a background on top to get a different look. I would also try an oval punch for the balloons, if I had one.

 
Belo osnovo za voščilnico sem spremenila v nebo s pomočjo doma narejene maske v obliki oblaka. Naredila sem jo s pomočjo okroglega luknjača in luknjača v obliki srca. Izrezke sem razrezala in jih zlepila skupaj. Masko sem nato položila na  želeno mesto in osenčila robove z Memento Summer Sky blazinico. Desni rob voščilnice je ostal nekoliko prazen, saj mi je uspelo zgrešiti sredino s šopom balonov in darilcem, tako da sem odrezala tanek trak belega kartona in ga osenčila z isto modro blazinico, kot sem jo uporabila na balonu in darilu, ter trakec prilepila na rob. Da sem voščilnico rahlo zmehčala, sem vogala na desnem robu zaokrožila. Nekako mi v večini primerov ne uspe zaključiti voščilnico brez bleščečih dodatkov, tako da sem na trakec darila dodala bleščeče lepilo Stickles v barvi Crystal in balone premazala z Wink of Stella markerjem v prozorni barvi. Idealna voščilnica za kogarkoli, ki praznuje. Glede na slavljenca lahko zamenjate barvo balonov, uporabite vzorčast papir ali balone poštempljate, da je končni izdelek malo drugačen. Če bi ga imela, bi poskusila balone oblikovati tudi z ovalnim luknjačem. 
I’m entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Wednesday Challenge. The prize is too good to miss this chance.

Voščilnico prijavljam na izziv Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Wednesday Challenge. Nagrada je preveč dobra, da bi zamudila izjemno priložnost.

Have a great day!

Želim vam čudovit dan!
