25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #25

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

It's the last day of this year's series. It's been fun and I hope you enjoyed :) I made a shaker card for the last day. I used an embossing folder with a decorative frame in the middle that I cut out. I shaded the embossed part, stamped a sentiment on the card base (I used the same one on this card) and glued a few sequins around it. I glued some transparency over the cut out shape and put foam tape all around it, making sure that I closed the space around the opening. I made a pile of sequins in the middle and glued the cut out part on top. I added a snowman coloured up with Inktense pencils like on the last one. To jazz up the front part I added some sequins and Stickles. 
Danes je zadnji dan letošnje serije. Bilo je zabavno in upam, da se tudi vi uživali :) Danes sem pripravila "shaker" voščilnico ali kot jo poimenuje Tina iz Najlepšega para - tresočko. Uporabila sem mapco za suho embosiranje, ki ima odtisnjen dekorativen okvir, ki sem ga izrezala ven. Preko te odprtine sem nalepila prozorno folijo. Na osnovo voščilnice sem odtisnila voščilo in okoli prilepila nekaj bleščečih ploščic. Na embosiran kos sem dodala penasto lepilo in pri tem pazila, da sem zaprla okvir okoli odprtine, da bleščice ne bodo uhajale ven. Na sredini sem naredila kupček različnih bleščic in prilepila sprednji del preko. Embosiran kartonček sem še malce senčila z modro barvo, dodala nekaj bleščic in ploščic, na okvirček pa sem dodala še enega snežaka, kot pri zadnji, ki sem ga pobarvala z Inktense barvicami. 
Thank you very much for coming over and I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas with your loved ones. 

Hvala lepa za obisk in želim vam čudovit in miren božič v krogu najdražjih.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #24

Hello everyone!
 
Lepo pozdravljeni!
 
I wanted to use another snowman for today's card and I did :) I used HA Tiny Star background and embossed it with clear embossing powder and ran that panel through an embossing folder with swirls. To make things more pronounced I added some HA Soft Sky shadow ink with a blending tool. Snowy hills are made with some pattern paper that I sponged on the edges with some Danube Blue Memento ink and stamped the sentiment (Happy Holidays!) with the same ink. Snowman was stamped in Versafine Onyx black and coloured with Inktense pencils. A die cut snowflake from Memorybox, some stickles and we are done.
Danes sem ponovno želela uporabiti snežaka, pa sem to tudi storila. Za ozadje sem s prozornim embosirnim prahom embosirala HA Tiny Star ozadje in nato isti kartonček še suho embosirala z nekaj vijugicami. Da se posamezni elementi malo lepše vidijo, sem ga osenčila še s HA Soft Sky blazinico. Snežene hribe sem naredila iz vzorčastega papirja in zgornji rob osenčila z Memento Danube blue blazinico, ki sem jo uporabila tudi za odtis voščila. Snežaka sem odtisnila s črno Versafine blazinico in ga pobarvala z Inktense barvicami. Izrezana snežinka, nekaj Stickles bleščic in sem zaključila voščilnico.
Thank you for coming over and have a great day! See you again (for the last 25 Days of Jay post) on Wednesday!
 
Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan. Se vidimo ponovno v sredo, ko bom z vami delila zadnjo objavo letošnjih 25 dni veselja.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #23

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's card is one of those, where I couldn't stick with one card with one stamp/die etc. I had to use the MFT Snowman again. It's not so CAS as the previous one, but it's still beautiful IMO. I used some embossing paste (that I coloured with HA Tide Pool ink pad) over a Prima stencil for the background. Snowman is stamped and coloured with Inktense pencils. Circle die is from Nellie Snellen's. Sentiment (Happy Holidays!) is stamped on a MFT border die cut strip. I shaded everything with a darker pool colour. I glued everything together and even put the circle on with some foam adhesive. No holiday card is finished until there is some sparkle so I added some Stickes around the sentiment, over the ornaments, scarf and into the holes of the circle die.
Današnja voščilnica je ponovno ena izmed tistih, ko neke štampiljke/šablonice ipd. no moreš uporabiti samo enkrat :) Danes sem ponovno uporabila MFT snežaka. Voščilnica sicer ni tako preprosta, kot prejšnja, se mi pa vseeno zdi čudovita. Za ozadje sem pobarvala nekaj embosirne paste s HA Tide Pool blazinico in jo nanesla preko Prima stencil šablonice. Snežaka sem odtisnila in pobarvala z Inktense barvicami in ga izrezala s pomočjo Nellie Snellen's okrogle šablone. Voščilo sem odtisnila na izrezano MFT obrobo. Vse robove sem poudarila s temnejšo turkizno blazinico in stvari prilepila skupaj. Snežak je celo malce dvignjen s pomočjo penastega lepila. Ker pa nobena praznična voščilnica ni dokončana brez nekaj bleščic, sem na snežakove okraske, šal, rob voščila in luknjice kroga nanesla še nekaj Stickles bleščic. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great weekend. See you again on Monday. 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit vikend. Upam, da se vidimo ponovno v ponedeljek.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #22

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

End of this series is coming closer and I wanted to use this stamp, that I used on the first card, on another one and try to do it differently. I wanted to use my new set of Distress markers and play a little. It's quite a difficult stamp to colour on with markers because there are no border lines, but I think it came out quite lovely. This Nativity is quite beautiful IMO. I used embossing paste for the background and a Memorybox stencil. I covered the paste with some glitter embossing powder and heat set it when it was dry. Sentiment is one of the regular ones over here this last month and it's from Najlepši par (Happy Holidays), die cut from some glitter paper.
Konec serije se naglo bliža in preden se zaključi, sem želela ponovno uporabiti štampiljko, ki krasi prvo voščilnico v tej seriji. Ker sem želela drugačen efekt, sem se malce poigrala z novim setom Distress markerjev in štampiljko pobarvala pred odtisom. Priznam, da je bila naloga kar zahtevna, saj ni na podobi nobenih intenzivnejših obrob. Mislim, da je ratal odtis precej lep. Za ozadje sem uporabila embosirno parsto in Memorybox stencil, pasto pa sem posula z bleščečim embosirnim prahom in ga segrela, ko se je vse skupaj posušilo. Voščilo pa je ena izmed stalnic zadnjega meseca, ki sem ga danes izrezala iz nekaj bleščečega papirja. 
Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day. See you again on Friday. 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan. Se vidimo ponovno v petek.

Voščilnico dodajam v galerijo Najlepšega para za mesec december.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #21

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's project is a gift for a very good friend of mine that loves red colour. I made her a desk calendar and a box to package it in it. I made the calendar part in Word and printed it out. I stamped a different image for every month on the little piece. I scored and glued the calendar together and then cut some pattern paper and glued it on, made a whole and tied the calendar on the base with some red ribbon. I glued a few post-it notes on the left side and that was it. Box is just a simple one with a lid and it's tied together with the same ribbon.
Današnji izdelek je namizni koledarček za zelo dobro prijateljico, ki obožuje rdečo barvo. Zraven sem naredila še škatlico, v katerega ga bom zapakirala. Koledar sem oblikovala v Wordu in ga sprintala. Na vsak mesec sem odtisnila drugo štampiljko in tako okrasila posamezne listke. Osnovo za koledar sem prepognila in zalepila skupaj, nanjo prilepila nekaj vzorčastega papirja, ki sem ga vijugasto odrezala, na pravem mestu naredila luknjo in z nekaj traku privezala koledar na osnovo. Za dodaten prostor za zapiske sem na levi strani prilepila nekaj post-it listkov. Škatlica je povsem preprosta z ločenim pokrovom. 
That is it for today and hope to see you back on Wednesday. 

To je vse za danes, pa upam, da se ponovno vidimo v sredo. 

Mateja

Koledarček prijavljam v Mavelu mesečni izziv: Ročno izdelana darila (iz trgovinice sem uporabila Tombow Mono Multi lepilo, pri mesecu januarju je snežinka odtisnjena s HA Cornflower blazinico, v notranjosti koledarja pa sem uporabila še HA blazinice Pool, Red Royal, Butter Bar, Charcoal in Grape Juice).

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #20


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

It's been a crazy week and I'm glad it's the weekend :) I have a snowy card for you today, because it's finally getting colder here and it feels like snow is closer. This deer just cracks me up when I see him. He looks super confused and super cute :) I coloured him with my watercolour pencils and blended him out with a blender pen. I used a light blue pattern paper for the background, dry embossed some snowflakes on a strip and glued on a diagonal. Snowflake die is a Memorybox one and I glued it on three spots under and over the main panel that I popped up with some demensional adhesive. To finish it off a added Stickles on top of star-lights, snowflakes and all over the sky for some snow affect. 
Za mano je precej delaven in naporen teden, tako da bo vikend izjemno dobrodošel premor. Današnja voščilnica je malce bolj sneženo obarvana, ker so se tudi zunaj temperature malce spustile in imaš občutek, da je zima dejansko zelo blizu :) Jelenček, ki sem ga uporabila danes, me vedno znova spravi v smeh, ker gleda povsem zmedeno in je izjemno prisrčen. Pobarvala sem ga akvarelnimi barvicami. Za ozadje sem uporabila svetlo moder vzorčast papir, trak kartona embosirala s snežinkami in ga prilepila diagonalno preko zgornjega dela voščilnice. Izrezana snežinka je delo Memorybox šablonice in sem jo prilepila na treh koncih voščilnice, tudi pod glavni del, ki sem ga malce dvignila s penastim lepilom. Za zaključek sem dodala Stickles bleščice na zvezdice, snežinke in okoli jelenčka, da sem dobila efekt sneženja. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great weekend. See you again on Monday.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit konec tedna. Se vidimo ponovno v ponedeljek.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #19


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's card is a new combination of some elements that you have seen before in this series. I used the same die cut and coloured it the same way as on this card. I also added a sentiment that I used on two other cards that you can see here and here. New thing about this card is the size. It's a long and skinny card that I don't do very often. I placed some pattern paper on the back and some glitter on the die cut piece, around it and around the sentiment. You can't have a Christmas card with no sparkle :)
Današnja voščilnica je kombinacija elementov, ki ste jih v tej seriji morda že videli. Uporabila sem isto šablonico in jo pobarvala na enak način, kot v tej voščilnici. Voščilo Ustvarjalnega dotika pa sem uporabila že na dveh drugih voščilnicah, ki jih najdete tukaj in tukaj. Nov element je velikost voščilnice, ki je dolga in ozka, oblika, ki jo le redko uporabim. Za ozadje sem uporabila nekaj vzorčastega papirja in po izrezku, okoli njega in okoli voščila dodala še nekaj bleščic, ker praznična voščilnica prav gotovo ni končana, dokler se nekje nekaj ne svetlika. 
Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day. See you again on Friday.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan. Upam, da se ponovno vidimo v petek.

25 days of Joy / 25 dni veselja # 18

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I played with some embossing powders. I used silver, gold and bronze embossing powder and did a two toned embossing. I used silver and bronze together for the first card. This Christmas tree is a rubber stamp from Indigo Blue and it is gorgeous :) To get the two toned embossing I stamped my tree first with Versamark ink and toured the silver powder on a few spots and quickly flipped it over to shake of the access. Then I poured the bronze powder all over the image and embossed this combination. 
Danes sem se igrala z nekaj embosirnimi prahovi. Uporabila sem srebrn, zlat in bronast prah in naredila kombinacijo dveh barv na enem odtisu. Na prvi voščilnici sem uporabila srebrn in bronast prah. Najprej sem odtisnila smrečico, ki je gumijasta štampiljka Indigo Blue in mi je zelo všeč. Uporabila sem Versamark blazinico. Na odtis sem na nekaj mestih posula srebrn prah in na hitro obrnila karton okoli, da sem odvečen prah otresla dol. Bronast prah sem nato posula preko celotnega odtisa in vse skupaj segrela. 

I glue some red pattern paper on my card base and die cut a sentiment (Happy Holidays) from the same pattern. I glued everything together and added some Glossy Accents over my sentiment. I glued some rhinestones around the card to finish everything off.
Na osnovo sem prilepila rdeč vzorčast papir in iz enakega papirja izrezala tudi voščilo Najlepšega Para. Prilepila sem ga na embosiran kartonček in vse skupaj prilepila na osnovo. Preko voščila sem nanesla še nekaj Glossy Accents lepila za bleščeč izgled in po voščilnici posula nekaj draguljčkov. 

Second one is the same I just switched of the bronze powder with my gold detail one. I don't really like the effect of this powder because it does not want to turn smooth. It stays grainy no matter how much I try to smooth it out. I managed to do it with the sentiment, but it took two coats of embossing. I finished the edges the same way that Kristina Werner likes to do them this year by rubbing the edge over Versamark ink pad and embossing it. I think I need some practise with this.  
Drugo voščilnico sem naredila na enak način, le da sem bronast prah zamenjala z zlatim. Na žalost mi ta embosirni prah ni najbolj pri srcu, saj ostane precej zrnast, čeprav se ga trudim zgladiti z grelno pištolo. To mi nikoli povsem ne uspe, je pa to uspelo pri voščilo, na katerega pa sem nanesla dve plasti prahu. Robove sem zaključila enako, kot to zimo rada počne Kristina Werner, tako da sem robove podrgnila ob Versamark blazinico in jih embosirala. Mislim, da potrebujem še nekaj vaje pri tem efektu. 
That is it for today. I was just playing with what I have available to me and I came up with this. Hope you have a wonderful day and see you again on Wednesday. 

To je to za danes. Malce sem se igrala z materialom, ki mi je na voljo in nastali sta ti dve čestitki. Želim vam čudovit dan in upam, da se vidimo ponovno v sredo.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #17

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

We are going to use our card making supplies to wrap up some chocolate today. If you are in a hurry with no wrapping paper, you can use what you have on hand. I made a box with some pattern paper using a very useful gadget that Laura Bassen shared in one of her posts. It's the Box Buster by The Crafty Owl. You just measure your gift, put the numbers in and use your Envelope Punch Board to make a box. Because it's a very narrow chocolate I had to cut the flaps a little and I tied a bow around it without gluing it shut.
Danes bomo uporabili material za izdelavo voščilnic in z njim zavili nekaj darilc. Če se vam mudi, pa pri roki nimate nobenega darilnega papirja, lahko uporabite tisto, kar imate na voljo. Najprej sem naredila majhno škatlico iz vzorčastega papirja, pri čemer sem uporabila zelo uporaben pripomoček, ki da je v enem izmed svojih objav omenila Laura Bassen. To je Box Buster avtorice The Crafty Owl. Svoje darilce izmerite, vnesete številke v prostorčke in po navodilih izdelate škatlico s pomočjo Envelope Punch Board. Ker je moja čokoladica zelo ozka, sem dva zavihka malce skrajšala in škatlo zaprla s pomočjo traku. Lahko bi ga tudi zalepila.
Second way is making a sleeve for my chocolate. I just scored some cardstock, silver embossed a tree on the front, glued it together and tied a bow around it.
Druga varianta je rokav za čokolado. Prepognila sem nekaj kartona, na njega embosirala smrečico s srebrnim prahom in ga zalepila skupaj. Okoli sem zavezala tudi mašnico.

And the last way is using pattern paper just the way we would use wrapping paper. If you have a thinner pattern paper it's not a problem to wrap straight edged gifts (like boxes). Then you just add some ribbon or a tag and you are done (this is the tag that I made here).
In še zadnja ideja je uporaba vzorčastega papirja povsem enako, kot bi uporabili darilni papir. Če je papir tanjši, boste darila z ravnimi robovi zavili brez večjih problemov. Lahko dodate samo nekaj traku ali eno etiketko, pa ste pripravljeni (to etiketko se naredila že prej in si o njej lahko preberete tukaj).
Hope this helps with some ideas :) Thank you for coming over and have a great weekend. See you again on Monday. 

Upam, da ste dobili kakšno idejo :) Hvala za obisk in čudovit vikend vam želim. Vidimo se ponovno v ponedeljek.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #16

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's gift is in a shape of a gift card. We are going to hide it in a little envelope on the inside of today's card. I used a MFT Snowman that I got on a sale at the beginning of summer and came really handy at the beginning of December.

Današnje darilce bomo podarili v obliki darilne kartice, ki jo bomo zapakirali v kuvertico znotraj voščilnice, na zunanji strani pa sem uporabila izjemno simpatičnega snežaka. Štampiljka je del razprodaje MFT, ki sem si jo privoščila na začetku poletja, sedaj pa mi na začetku decembra pride prav za današnjo voščilnico. 
I stamped the snowman with a Versafine ink and coloured him in with watercolour pencils. Sentiment says Merry Christmas and is from a Najlepši par set of dies. I die cut it from some pattern paper and glued it on my card base. I covered it with some Glossy Accents. I switched the snowflakes with some sequins and dots in Glossy Accents and Stickles. After some sparkle on his scarf and ornaments the front is all done.
Snežaka sem odtisnila z Versafine štampiljko in ga pobarvala z akvarelnimi barvicami. Voščilo je ponovno delo Najlepšega para in sem ga izrezala iz nekaj rdečega vzorčastega papirja. Ko sem ga prilepila na voščilnico, sem ga prevlekla z Glossy Accents, da se lepo blešči. Okoli snežaka sem namesto snežink prilepila nekaj bleščic, jim dodala pikice Glossy Accents in še par pikic bleščic. Z nekaj bleščicami na šalu in ornamentih sem prvo stran zaključila. 
I glued a small envelope on the inside to make room for the gift card. I used some pattern paper and my Envelope Punch Board for it. You can put your gift card inside or switch it up for some cash that you fold over. You can glue it shut or just tuck the flap in. 

Za darilno kartico sem v notranjosti voščilnice prilepila kuvertico iz vzorčastega papirja, ki sem jo naredila s pomočjo Envelope Punch Board-a.  V tabelici sem poiskala ustrezno velikost, izrezala pravo velikost papirja in sledila navodilom. V kuvertico tako lahko damo kartico ali pa celo denar, če bankovec malce prepognemo. Kuvertico na koncu lahko tudi zalepimo, če se nam to zdi potrebno, sicer pa je dovolj, če zgornji del le zataknemo v spodnjega.
This turned out to be one of my favourites in this series so far. Thank you for coming over and hope to see you back on Friday. 

Za enkrat je ta voščilnica ena izmed mojih najljubših do sedaj. Hvala za obisk in upam, da se vidimo ponovno v petek.

25 Days of Joy / 25 dni veselja #15

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni!

We are more than half way thru this series and I'm dedicating this week to alternative ways of giving gifts and packing them up. First up is money. I really don't like giving money to someone directly or in an envelope so I try to hide it somewhere inside the gift. I made a card today that holds the money inside, but I still have plenty of space to write a message to the recipient. 

Smo že preko sredine praznične serije in ta teden se bom posvetila alternativnim načinom dajanja daril oz. predstavila nekaj idej, kako darilce zapakirati. Danes se bomo ustavili pri darilu v obliki denarja. Resnično ne maram dajati denarja kot darilo neposredno iz rok ali zaprtega v eni kuvertici, tako da ga vedno poskušam nekako skriti znotraj darila. Danes sem pripravila voščilnico, ki ima v notranjosti držalo za denar, pri tem pa ne zmanjka prostora za pisanje voščila. 
This is option even for a birthday present in the winter time, because there is no sentiment. I used a red piece of card stock and silver embossed some holly leaves on top. I added a silver ribbon bow and made it look like a present. I dry embossed the card base with snowflakes and glued the present on top with some foam tape. 

Voščilnica je primerna tudi za rojstnodnevno darilo v zimskem času, saj ni nobenega specifičnega voščila na njej. Vzela sem temno rdeč karton in en kos embosirala s srebrnim prahom. Okoli njega sem zavezala srebrn trak in naredila paketek. Prvo stran osnove sem suho embosirala s snežinkami in darilo prilepila nanjo s pomočjo penastega lepila. 
The money holder is made out of another piece of red card stock that I die cut some snowflakes from with a Memorybox border die. I scored top and bottom and glued it on the inside. It fits and holds up to 50 € bills. You can also use some pattern paper for the present or change up the colours or image and make an all year round money holder for any occasion.

Držalo za denar je narejeno iz ožjega kosa kartona, iz katerega sem izrezala nekaj snežink s pomočjo Memorybox šablonice. Zgornji in spodnji del sem zapognila in prilepila v notranjost. Drži bankovce do 50 €, ki ne bodo padli nikamor, dokler jih ne želimo vzeti ven. Za darilo se lahko uporabi tudi vzorčast papir ali drugačno barvo in štampiljko, da si izdelate žepek za denar za vsako priložnost.
That is it for today. Thank you for coming over and have a great day. See you again on Wednesday. 

To je vse za danes. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan. Se vidimo v sredo.
