Baby boy card / Voščilnica za novorojenčka


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I'm breaking the »love« series with a baby boy card full of circles. I sponged the background over a dot stencil with Hero Arts Soft Sky ink. Image is coloured in with watercolour pencils and then I die cut it with a circle die. Sentiments are from Ustvarjalni Dotik (Children's laughter is the greatest thing that can happen to us. (Freud) and Congratulations) and I stamped them with two different blue inks and die cut it. Scalloped circles are die cut from some blue cardstock and I also sponged on the edges. I glued things together and added some foam tape underneath the sentiment part. Baby Blue Stickles over the image, flourishes and all over the dots of the background and we are done :)
Prekinjam ljubezensko serijo z voščilnico za novorojenčka, ki je polna krogov. Ozadje sem senčila preko pikaste šablone s pomočjo Hero Arts Soft Sky blazinice. Voziček sem pobarvala s pomočjo akvarelnih barvic in ga izrezala z okroglo šablono. Čudoviti voščili sem dobila v Ustvarjalnem dotiku in ju odtisnila v dveh različnih modrih odtenkih. Tudi ta del sem izrezala z okroglo šablono. Valovite kroge sem izrezala iz modrega kartona in robove še malce senčila z modro blazinico. Del z voščili sem malce dvignila s pomočjo penastega lepila, ostalo sem prilepila direktno na osnovo. Na voziček in pike v ozadju sem dodala še Baby Blue Stickles (prav tako iz Ustvarjalnega dotika) in s tem zaključila voščilnico.

Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 

Mateja 

Voščilnico prijavljam v mesečni izziv Ustvarjalnega dotika: Nov družinski član (iz trgovinice je osnova za voščilnico, obe voščili in Baby Blue Stickles bleščice v lepilu).

Valentine's # 2 / Valentinovo št. 2


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's Valentine's Day/Love card is a play on one of my favourite wedding cards I made so far. This time I didn't fill the heart out completely but made an outline instead. Since I had space in the middle of the heart I stamped the sentiment there (All the best!) and sponged the edges with Hero Arts Red Royal ink. Sentiment and additional hearts were stamped with VersaMark in and I brushed some bronze Perfect Pearls over it (looking back I would use Perfect Pearl colour on the hearts instead – when you don't see the shine, it looks a bit out of place).
Današnja valentinova/ljubezenska voščilnica je varianta ene izmed mojih najljubših poročnih voščilnic do sedaj. Tukaj srce nisem povsem zapolnila in sem si tako pustila nekaj prostora za voščilo na sredini, robove pa sem senčila s Hero Arts Red Royal blazinico. Voščilo in dodatna srca sem odtisnila z VersaMark blazinico in čez nanesla bronast Perfect Pearls prah (če bi voščilnico delala še enkrat, bi preko src nanesla perlast prah, saj bronasta srca brez sijaja izgledajo malce neposrečeno).
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Valentine's #1 / Valentinovo št. 1

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Valentine's Day is right around the corner so I decided to share some love/wedding cards with you. I made this some time ago, but I had no chance to share them. First one is a butterfly one (no surprise there). Butterflies remind me of soul mates, flying together through the life and a couple of fluttery friends are the way to go in my opinion. I made a stencil with a Memorybox heart die and sponged the background in Red Royal Hero Arts ink. Two elegant Memorybox butterflies, some rhinestones and a congratulations sentiment and we are ready :)
Valentinovo je za vogalom, zato sem se odločila, da z vami delim par voščilnic na temo ljubezen/poroka. Voščilnice so nastale že nekaj časa nazaj, vendar jih še nisem uspela objaviti. Prva voščilnica je opremljena s parom metuljev (nobeno presenečenje). Metulji me enostavno spomnijo na dušo dvojčico in skupno letenje skozi življenje, zato se mi takšna voščilnica zdi povsem smiselna. S srčkasto Memorybox šablono sem si naredila stencil za senčenje ozadja, za kar sem uporabila Hero Arts Red Royal blazinico. Par metuljev od Memoryboxa, nekaj draguljčkov in odtisnjene čestitke, pa smo zaključili :)

Thank you for coming over and have a great day! 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

A Blog Named Hero Challenge - Personalize

http://ablognamedhero.blogspot.com/2015/01/challenge-time-personalise.html
Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today's challenge at A Blog Named Hero is called Personalize. I made a card for my mother (her name is Valentina) and I went for bright and cheerful colours. I used a Hero Arts background stamp and embossed it with silver embossing powder on some watercolour paper. 
 
Današnji izziv na A Blog Named Hero je Individualiziraj. Naredila sem voščilnico za mami, ki ji je ime Valentina, uporabila pa sem živahne in svetle barve. Uporabila sem Hero Arts štampiljko za ozadje in jo embosirala s srebrnim embosirnim prahom na akvarelni papir.

Then I used Distress Inks as watercolours by pressing them on an acrylic block and picking up the colour with a paintbrush. A sponged some Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe in from behind the watercolour panel. I used Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABC's in Capital and lowercase alphabet stamps for the name. To colour letters up a bit I pressed the same Soft Cantaloupe ink on an acrylic block and picket the colour up with a blender pen and shaded the bottom up a little. 
 
Nato sem za barvanje cvetov uporabila Distress blazinice kot akvarelne barve, ki sem jih pritisnila na akrilno ploščico. Izza akvarelnega papirja sem na osnovo voščilnice senčila nekaj Soft Cantaloupe Hero Arts blazinice. Za napis sem uporabila Lawn Fawn Qiunn's štampiljke z velikimi in malimi tiskanimi črkami. Da sem jih malce pobarvala, sem Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe blazinico pritisnila na akrilno ploščico in senčila spodnji del črk s pomočjo Blender markerja.

I added some tiny gemstones and rounded the corners. Since I thought my watercolour pannel needed some grounding I draw some lines purposely making them wobbly and uneven.
 
Dodala sem nekaj drobnih draguljčkov in zaokrožila vogale. Da sem akvarelni del malce "zasidrala", sem a daljših robovih s prosto roko narisala nekaj črt in jih namenoma naredila neenakomerne.

I hope you will join us and have a go at winning a 25 $ gift certificate from our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp.
Upam, da se nam pridružite in poskusite osvojiti darilni bon v vrednosti 25 $ našega sponzorja Simon Says Stamp.

New adventures / Nove dogodivščine

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Some already noticed, but for those that did not... I became a part of A Blog Named Hero Design Team. I can't tell you how honoured and excited I am. There are some amazing things planned and I will share it all over here. It's going to take some getting used to (mostly from my part), but I think it will be super fun :)

Nekateri ste že opazili, za tiste, ki še niste, pa vesela novica... z novim letom sem postala član ustvarjalne ekipe A Blog Named Hero. Neverjetno počaščena, navdušena in ponosna sama nase. Glede na to, da ob prijavi nisem pričakovala ničesar, je bilo vse skupaj res kot strela z jasnega. Ampak dobre sorte strela :) Naslednjih šest mesecev se bo torej dogajalo kar precej stvari, vse skupaj pa bom delila tudi z vami. 

Today's post is my introduction and I shared a bit about myself and a cute party themed card with a bonus for the occasion. I hope you will take a peek. 

Današnja objava je del predstavitev nove ustvarjalne ekipe, kjer sem delila nekaj informacij o sebi in naredila voščilnico na temo zabava/praznovanje s prikupnim dodatkom. Upam, da boste pokukali tudi tja.

Walking into a new year... / Zakorakajmo v novo leto...

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

First of all, let me wish you a happy, healthy and extremely creative new year! I hope you had wonderful celebrations in the company of your loved ones and that you didn't get blown away by some fireworks. After I finished my 25 Days of Joy series I took a little break from posting over here, but it was not only because of the holidays, lack of free time and energy (because of my full belly), but because of a new task that I was given right before the holidays and it demanded quite a lot of my time and attention. Unfortunately I can't tell you about it yet, but I will do it as soon as I can. 

Na začetku naj vam zaželim izjemno srečno, zdravo in ustvarjalno novo leto! Upam, da ste imeli čudovito praznovanje v krogu najdražjih in da vas ni odpihnila kakšna raketa. Od zaključka serije 25 dni veselja, je bila z moj strani precej dolga pavza objav, za kar pa niso krivi le prazniki, pomanjkanje časa in energije (zaradi polnega želodčka), temveč tudi ena čisto nova naloga, ki sem jo pred prazniki dobila in je zelo na hitro zahtevala precej moje pozornosti in časa. Na žalost vam še ne smem zaupati narave te naloge, bom pa o njej objavila prispevek takoj, ko bo to mogoče :)

Since I made it over my first 50 posts before the end of the year I think this card is appropriate for today. I used some stencils, my favourite Memorybox floral die, a butterfly and some sponging. Very pink, but not over the top. 
Glede na to, da sem pred novim letom prekoračila 50 objav, menim, da je današnja voščilnica kar primerna. Uporabila sem stencil šablono, mojo najljubšo Memorybox rezalno šablono rožic, metuljčka in nekaj senčenja. Nastala je precej roza voščilnica, vendar po mojem mnenju ni prehudo punčkasta. 
Thank you all for your support, comments and visits to my blog in 2014. Let's make it another successful year! :)
 
Hvala vsem skupaj za podporo, komentarje in obiske v preteklem letu. Naj bo tudi to leto uspešno. :)
