Simon Says... Anything goes and Hearts / SS Karkoli in Srca

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I have another wedding card in "traditional" colours. I used Memorybox border die twice stamped my sentiment and two red hearts that I brushed over with some Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl colour. Sentiment says: Everything is possible in dreams and love (by James Arony). I glued down some red cardstock on my card base and popped the main panel (with rounded corners) up with some foam tape. That was it :) (I apologise for greyish photos... it was a gloomy day.)


Danes imam za vas poročno voščilnico v bolj tradicionalnih barvah. Za izrezane srčke sem dvakrat uporabila Memorybox šablonico, dodala sporočilce in dva rdeča srčka, ki sem ju odtisnila v rdeči barvi preko katere sem nato nanesla nekaj Perfect Perls prahu v Perfect Pearl barvi. Kos rdečega kartona sem nalepila na osnovo voščilnice, glavnemu delu pa sem zaokrožila kote in ga prilepila na osnovo s penastim lepilom. To je to :) (Opravičujem se za malce slabšo osvetljenost... bil je precej siv dan.)


It's a super simple card but it gets the message across. 

Zelo preprosta voščilnica, pri kateri je najpomembnejše sporočilo. 

I'm entering this card into following challenges: 

Voščilnico prijavljam v naslednje izzive: 


-Ustvarjalni dotik izziv za mesec junij: Srce (iz spletne trgovinice Ustvarjalni dotik sem uporabila štampiljko, osnovo za voščilnico in rdeč karton)

Thank you for comming over and have a wonderful day! 

Hvala za obisk in čudovit dan vam želim!

Having some time trouble... / Nekaj težav s časom...

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

It has been a while since my last post. I apologise. It's been a hectic week and I barely had time to think about my blog let alone writing something for you. I made some cards, but just had no time to write about them. While I was thinking about my blog (and my no-posting status) I realised it takes me about two to three hours to write one post. That is kind of ridiculous if I don't really have the time for it. That is why I decided to write less, tell only the important things and explain just things that (in my opinion) need extra explanation. If there is something unclear about my card, you are always welcome to leave a comment and I will be happy to answer every dilemma that may occur. I will post as many cards and projects as I can, but with few added words. 

Preteklo je že kar nekaj časa od moje zadnje objave. Se opravičujem. Za mano je izjemno nor teden, ki mi ni dopuščal veliko prostega časa, tako da sem komaj uspela razmišljati o tem, da bi tukajle objavila kakšen odstavek, kaj šele, da bi dejansko kaj uspela objaviti. Uspela sem narediti nekaj voščilnic, časa za njihovo objavo pa je enostavno zmanjkalo. Medtem, ko sem občasno uspela pomisliti na kakšno novo objavo (in to, da objave ne nastajajo same od sebe), sem ugotovila, da porabim za pisanje ene objave približno dve do tri ure. To se mi zdi vseeno malce preveč, če že tako primanjkuje časa. Očitno stvari ne znam napisati kratko in jedrnato, kar pa bom v prihodnje poskušala popraviti. Odločila sem se, da bom za enkrat svoje objave skrčila na najbolj nujne informacije in dodatno razlago vključila le v primeru, da se mi bo to zdelo nujno potrebno. V primeru, da kakšna stvar ni dovolj jasna, ste dobrodošli, da mi pustite komentar z vprašanji, na katera bom poskušala odgovoriti po svojih najboljših močeh. Poskušala bom objaviti toliko voščilnic in projektov, kot je le mogoče, z manj besedila in le glavnimi informacijami. 

This is probably temporary, but I wanted to be honest about my situation and share my decision because things are probably going to change a little bit. I will have another card up today or tomorrow (at the latest) and until then thank you for understanding! 

Takšna situacija je najverjetneje začasna, vendar sem želela iskreno spregovoriti o trenutnem dogajanju in svoji odločitvi, ker se bodo objave v prihodne najverjetneje malenkost spremenile. Danes ali (najkasneje) jutri bom objavila novo voščilnico, do takrat pa najlepša hvala za razumevanje! 

Have a wonderful day! 

Čudovit dan vam želim!

SSS Wednesday challenge: Stencil it!

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Theme over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Stencil it so I used my homemade white embossing paste over a stencil and came up with a wedding card for today. 

Tema trenutnega izziva na Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blogu je uporabi šablono. S tem izzivom v mislih sem uporabila svojo doma narejeno belo embosirno pasto preko plastične šablonice in naredila poročno voščilnico za današnjo objavo. 

 
I really like the look of white embossing paste over white cardstock. It's just enough to give it some texture. I did that on a rectangular piece of cardstock and used stencil from Rayher that was originally meant as a face-painting stencil, but I'm probably not going to use it as that. I applied embossing paste over stencil with a plastic spatula and let it dry completely on its own. In the mean time I stamped MFT Blooming Roses in HA Soft Cantaloupe and Pale Tomato inks. I did the leaves with the Rock n' Roll Technique and used HA Green Hills and Memento Cottage Ivy inks for that (same as with this card).

Zelo mi je všeč, kako lepo zgleda bela embosirna pasta preko bele podlage, ker je ravno prav, da izdelku da nekaj globine. Ravno to sem imela v mislih, ko sem na pravokoten kos kartona preko stencil šablonice od Rayherja nanesla pasto s pomočjo plastične spatule. Točno ta šablonica je sicer mišljena kot maska oziroma pripomoček za poslikavo obraza, vendar je najverjetneje ne bom uporabljala v ta namen. Pasto sem pustila, da se je posušila sama od sebe. Medtem sem odtisnila vrtnice iz seta MFT Blooming Roses v kombinaciji HA Soft Cantaloupe in Pale Tomato blazinic. Listi so nastali s pomočjo tehnike Rock n' Roll, za katero pa sem uporabila HA Green Hills in Memento Cottage Ivy blazinico (točno tako, kot pri tej voščilnici). 


Sentiment was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with detail gold embossing powder. It says: The most amazing day. I cut cardstock into a small banner and fussy cut my roses and leaves. I cut a triangle from my rectangular piece with embossing paste on it, flipped it around and used it on the opposite corner as a template to make two triangles that are exactly the same. My card base is a kind of light craft cardstock (it is named eco cardstock in the craft store). Two triangles are glued directly to the card base, roses and sentiment banner are popped up with foam tape and I just tucked the leaves behind the flowers with some liquid glue and curled them a bit at the tips. 

Voščilo sem odtisnila na ločen kos kartona z Versamark blazinico in ga embosirala z detajlnim zlatim embosirnim prahom. Karton sem odrezala v trak in mu na obeh koncih naredila izgled zastavice, prav tako pa sem izrezala tudi cvetove in liste. Pravokotnemu kosu kartona, na katerega sem nanesla embosirno pasto, sem odrezala en kot v obliko trikotnika, ki sem jo nato obrnila in na nasprotnem kotu uporabila za vzorec, s pomočjo katerega sem tako dobila dva popolnoma enaka trikotnika. Moja osnova za voščilnico je eko karton, ki je nekakšna svetla različica "kraft" barve in je zelo lepa nevtralna podlaga. Nanjo sem prilepila embosirana trikotnika, voščilo in cvetove sem malce dvignila s penastim lepilom, listke pa sem s tekočim lepilom zataknila pod cvetove in jim rahlo privihala konice. 


I made this card into a possible money pouch if you would be giving the happy couple some money as your present. I partially die cut this doily die from Xcut (Vintage Notes Doily) two times, cut the remaining cardstock into a strip and glued them on the inside of my card. The space is wide enough to fit a 100 € bill, but is tight enough to not let it fall out. There is plenty of room to write your message on the other side. 

Voščilnico sem dokončala kot žepek za denar, v primeru, da je del darila za mladoporočenca tudi nekaj bankovcev. Dvakrat sem delno izrezala šablonico Xcut (Vintage Notes Doily) v obliki okrogle čipke, odrezala zraven še ozek trakec, in ju fiksirala v notranjost voščilnice. Prostor med njima je dovolj velik za 100 € bankovec, hkrati pa je dovolj tesno postavljen, da denar ne bo kar sam od sebe padel ven. Na drugi strani je še vedno dovolj prostora za sporočilo mlademu paru. 

This is one of my favourite cards I made so far. It's just beautiful :) 

To je ena izmed mojih najljubših voščilnic do sedaj. Preprosto se mi zdi čudovita :)

Get Sketchy with MFT and Lawnscaping Challenge: Embossing

Hello and welcome back!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I'm going to use a sketch. I have not done this before but it was quite fun :) I used MFT's latest sketch

Za današnjo voščilnico bom uporabila skico. Tega nisem naredila še nikoli, ampak je bilo precej zabavno :) Za to sem uporabila skico MFT bloga


I made a square card for a special birthday. It might also be used for an anniversary card but being married for 60 years is not that common nowadays so birthday it is :) 

Naredila sem kvadratno voščilnico za prav poseben rojstni dan. Ker na voščilnici ni posebnega napisa, bi jo lahko uporabili tudi kot čestitko ob obletnici poroke, vendar so takšne obletnice  dandanes precej redke, tako da bo voščilnica naverjetneje namenjena kar rojstnemu dnevu :)

I used Versamark ink on the background with a swirly stamp and applied Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl and Forever Violet colour. Horizontal strip is watercolour paper embossed with sparkly embossing powder (I used HA Starburst Lace) and watercoloured with Distress inks. I die cut some violet cardstock with Nellie Snellen's circle die and embossed number 60 in white embossing powder. 

Za ozadje sem uporabila okrasno vijugico in Versamark blazinico. Na odtis sem izmenično dodala Perfect Pearls v barvi Perfect Pearl in Forever Violet. Vodoravni trak je akvarelni papir, na katerega sem odtisnila HA čipko in jo embosirala s svetlečim embosirnim prahom. Papir sem nato pobarvala s pomočjo Distress Ink blazinic. Vijoličen karton sem izrezala s pomočjo okrogle Nellie Snellen's šablonice in nanj embosirala številko 60, za katero sem uporabila bel embosirni prah.



Circle doily is a MB die Amana Circle that I cut from the same panel of embossed and watercoloured watercolour paper. Rose embellishment is from MFT stamp set Blooming Roses (the smaller rose) that I stamped in Soft Purple HA ink and Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Leaves are from the same stamp set and I used the Rock n' Roll Technique with Green Hills HA ink and Memento Cottage Ivy ink. I fussy-cut them out and put them on some foam squares. For some added sparkle (if there was not enough already) I placed a few rhinestones on the card as well. 

Okrogla čipka je izrezana s pomočjo MB Amana Circle šablonice, pri kateri sem uporabila isti kos akvarelnega papirja, kot pri vodoravnem traku. Za dodatek na vrhu je manjša vrtnica iz seta štampiljk MFT Blooming Roses, ki sem jo odtisnila s Soft Purple HA blazinico in Dusty Concord Distress Ink blazinico. Listi so iz istega seta štampiljk, za njih pa sem uporabila Green Hills HA blazinico in Memento Cottage Ivy blazinico, ki sem ju kombinirala s pomočjo tehnike Rock n' Roll. Izrezala sem cvet in liste, ter jih na okrasen izrezek prilepila s pomočjo penastih kvadratkov. Za še nekaj dodatnega blišča (kot da ga na tej voščilnici še ni dovolj), sem po voščilnici razporedila še nekaj draguljčkov.

Voščilnico prijavljam na naslednje izzive: 



- Mavelu izziv za mesec junij: IZZIV (prvič uporabljena skica in Rock n' Roll tehnika)

SSS Anything Goes / CRAFT-alnica Slovenski napisi

Hi!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm going pink today :) It's not my favourite colour when it comes to baby cards (I prefer purple or red), but this is just so vibrant that it makes me smile none the less. 

Danes je vse v znamenju roza barve :) To sicer ni moja najljubša barva, ko govorimo o voščilnicah za novorojenčka (raje uporabim vijolično ali rdečo), vendar je ta voščilnica enostavno tako polna energije, da se mi ob pogledu nanjo na obraz prikrade nasmeh.

This little gal is a digital stamp from this blog and I coloured her with my watercolour pencils in pink and purple. She is sitting on a strip of pattern paper from Papermania and I used the same pad for my border piece. I first die cut my card base with a Najlepši par border die that makes a beautiful curvy line and stitched border as well (love it!) and then glued a strip of pattern paper behind it. I used a Heidi Swapp dots stencil for the background and applied some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over it. Sentiment says Congratulations! and is also stamped with Picked Raspberry. I fussy cut and glued the giraffe onto my card base with some foam tape, added some clear Wink of Stella Marker on top and that was it :)


Mala žirafasta gospodična je digitalna štampiljka s tega bloga, ki sem jo pobarvala s pomočjo mojih akvarelnih barvic v roza in vijoličnih odtenkih. Sedi na traku vzorčastega papirja iz roza paketka Papermanie, ki je poskrbel tudi za trak na robu voščilnice. Osnovo voščilnice sem na desnem robu skrajšala s pomočjo robne šablone Najlepšega para, ki hkrati odreže zelo lep rob in ga poudari s pomočjo črtkaste obrobe (čudovito!). Trak vzorčastega papirja sem nato prilepila na notranji strani sprednjega dela voščilnice. Na ozadju sem senčila pikice s pomočjo Heidi Swapp stencil šablonice in Distress blazinice v barvi Picked Raspberry. Voščilo je odtisnjeno z isto blazinico, žirafico pa sem izrezala in s pomočjo penastega lepila prilepila na osnovo. Za konec sem dodala še malo bleščic s pomočjo prozornega Wink of Stella markerja. To je to :)



I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Voščilnico prijavljam v naslednje izzive: 

- Simon Says: Anything Goes

- CRAFT-alnica: Slovenski napisi (Slovenian Sentiment)
