25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today's project is made out of two cards that I made with the same technique as the last one and I used it just for the snowflakes background. I used three different stamp sets for the snowflakes. On the first card I used glittery embossing powder, but you can't see it on the pictures. I tried :( At a certain angle snowflakes sparkle in green glitter. For the second one I used clear embossing powder so all of the snowflakes are smooth and shiny. Distress Ink was my ink of choice for this backround as well, but I did a blue - purple combination with Tumbled glass, Salty ocean, Dusty concord and Shaded lilac inks. First one is more blue toned and the second one is more purple toned.
Današnji projekt je sestavljeni iz dveh voščilnic, ki so bile izdelane z enako tehniko, kot prejšnja, vendar je ozadje glavni motiv in ga sestavljajo snežinke. Za snežinke sem uporabila tri različne komplete štampiljk. Pri prvi voščilnici sem štampiljke embosirala z bleščečim embosirnim prahom, ki pa se na fotografiji na žalost ne vidi. Pod določenim kotom se snežinke zelenkasto zableščijo. Pri drugi voščilnici sem uporabila prozoren embosirni prah, tako da je celotna površina snežink gladka in bleščeča. Za senčenje sem na obeh voščilnicah uporabila Distress Ink blazinice v barvi Tumbled glass, Salty ocean, Dusty concord in Shaded lilac. Pri prvi je bil večji poudarek na modrih tonih, pri drugi pa je malo več vijolične.
I added different sentiments and the first one says Magical Christmas and Enchanting New Year and the second one Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I made a little label for the first one and glued it on top of the background. For the second one I just cut a strip and glued it across. It's hanging off a little, but it will fit in a regular envelope. 
Dodala sem dve različni voščili in za prvo naredila malce bolj okrasno obliko, za drugo pa sem odrezala ozek trak. Oboje sem nalepila na ozadje, pri drugi pa celo sega preko osnove za voščilnico, vendar bo v navadni ovojnici povsem dovolj prostora. 
Thank you for coming over and see you on Monday with another project!

Hvala za obisk in nasvidenje do novega izdelka v ponedeljek!

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #1

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today is a special day because I'm starting my fist series called 25 Days of Joy. I'm planning to post something holiday related every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until Christmas (25 days total). I hope some of you get ideas from my projects, maybe a card design or a present for this holiday season.

Današnji dan je prav poseben dan, saj bom začela svojo prvo serijo, ki sem jo poimenovala 25 dni veselja. In kaj to ime pomeni? Do božiča bom vsak ponedeljek, sredo in petek objavila prazničen izdelek (25 vseh skupaj), ki bo morda komu od vas utrnil idejo za praznično voščilnico ali darilce. 
Today's card is very basic. I used some emboss resist that is one of my favourite techniques. Background was stamped with a Versamark pad. It's a Hero Arts background stamp with stars and dots. A sprinkled some silver embossing powder on top and embossed it. I sponged some blue shades of Distress Ink on the edges. It looks like night sky with snow to me. I did the same for the Nativity scene from Inkadinkado, cut it with a label die and glued it on with some foam dots. I glued everything on my card base with some edge around for a frame. 

Današnja voščilnica je precej osnovna. Uporabila sem tehniko emboss resist, ki je ena izmed mojih najljubših. Ozadje Hero Arts sem odtisnila z Versamark blazinico, odtis posula s srebrnim embosirnim prahom in ga stopila z grelno pištolo. Ozadje sestavljajo drobne zvezdice in pikice, ki z dodatnim modrim senčenjem na robovih (za kar sem uporabila nekaj modrih odtenkov Distress Ink blazinic) meni deluje kot nočno nebo s snegom. Povsem enako sem storila tudi s prizorom Jezusovega rojstva od Inkadinkado, ki sem ga izrezala v pomočjo šablonice in jo na ozadje prilepila z nekaj penastega lepila. Vse skupaj sem prilepila na osnovo voščilnice tako, da sem okoli pustila ozek okvirček. 
I tried the same design with gold embossing and red Distress Ink shading, but it looked like Jesus was on fire and that is really not what I was going for :) 

Enak dizajn sem poskusila tudi z zlatim embosirnim prahom in rdečimi Distress blazinicami, vendar je vse skupaj izpadlo kot da Jezus gori, kar pa prav gotovo nisem imela v mislih :) 

Thank you for coming over and see you on Friday with another project!

Hvala za obisk in nasvidenje do novega izdelka v petek!

Anything goes / Karkoli izziv

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Long time, no see :( It's almost a month since my last blog post and it feels really weird. I got an internship in my local primary school so I can do special exam to become a teacher or get a bit closer to getting a job as one :) Since this takes most of my mornings and job in the shop is mostly in the afternoons and we are fixing apartment for us in the evenings and free afternoons I was just too exhausted to make any cards and I barely got trough my emails every day :) Since this week we have a week of for the autumn vacations I'm going to do my best to work on some cards because I have a Christmas plan in mind. But more on that in the following days. 

Dolgo časa se že nismo brali. Od zadnje objave je že skoraj en mesec in občutek je precej čuden :/ Z oktobrom sem začela pripravništvo na osnovni šoli, ki mi bo omogočilo opravljanje strokovnega izpita, s čimer bom (upam) malce bližje službi na tem področju. Vsi dopoldnevi so tako posvečeni šoli, popoldnevi pa so poleg službe v trgovin namenjeni urejanju stanovanja in pripravljanju na obveznosti v šoli, tako da sem posledično brez dodatne energije, ki bi mi omogočila izdelovanje voščilnic. V zadnjem mesecu sem naredila točno eno voščilnico, ki sem jo potrebovala za praznovanje ene okrogle obletnice. Ker so ta teden šolske počitnice, upam, da bom uspela narediti kakšno več, saj imam za božični čas v mislih en določen projekt, o katerem pa malce več v prihodnjih dneh. 

Today's card was made for a special celebration. I used Versamark and Perfect Pearls for the background and the number on the tag. A bit of foil pattern paper and some MFT roses and leaves and I was done :) I love the look of Perfect Pearls. I just think it's a cute element of surprise. 


Današnja voščilnica je namenjena posebnemu praznovanju. Za ozadje in številke sem uporabila Versamark blazinico in Perfect Pearls prah. Par trakov vzorčastega papirja z bleščečo prevleko, par MFT vrtnic in listkov, pa sem zaključila. Šablonica za številko je del kompleta Najlepšega para, prvi, ki sem ga imela v lasti. Najbolj mi je všeč videz Perfect Pearls, saj je bleščeče presenečenje, ki popestri celotno voščilnico.

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala lepa za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!
