Friday Fun # 4

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I love Memory Box dies and this is one of my favourites. I used some soft pink pastel pattern paper with glitter and combined it with some white card stock for the background and stamped the numbers on soft teal pattern and cut it out. Dimension gives a bit of interest and diecuts make it elegant. I love this colour combination as well. 
Obožujem Memory Box rezalne šablone in ta, ki sem jo uporabila danes, je ena izmed mojih najljubših. Uporabila sem svetlo roza vzorčast papir z dodanimi bleščicami in ga z belimi izrezki uporabila za ozadje. Številke sem odtisnila na svetlo moder vzorčast papir in jih izrezala ven. zaradi teksture je voščilnica malce bolj zanimiva, izrezki pa delujejo zelo elegantno. Presenetljivo pa mi je zelo všeč tudi ta barvna kombinacija. 
Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful weekend!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit vikend!

Try it out Thursday # 1

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm starting with another addition to my blog - Try it out Thursday. Every last Thursday in month I will try out something new. Today I tried new technique in water colouring that is called background wash. Or at least that is how Dawn (from Wplus9) called it. I saw this video and wanted to try it. This card is what I came up with. I used IndigoBlu stamp and embossed it and then I coloured it with my watercolours (a cheep 24 set of them). Sentiment (Thank you) is die cut with Najlepši par's die and I glued a piece of black cardstock behind it. 
Danes začenjam z novim dodatkom k objavam na blogu in sicer Try it out Thursday, kjer bom vsak zadnji četrtek v mesecu poskusila nekaj novega. Za danes sem preizkusila tehniko, ki jo je v tem videu predstavila Dawn (ustanoviteljica Wplus9 linije). Tako je nastala današnja voščilnica. Uporabila sem IndigoBlu štampiljko in jo embosirala, nato pa preko odtisa nanašala akvarelne barve (poceni set 24ih šolskih vodenk). Voščilo sem izrezala in za njim prilepila kos črnega kartona.
Hope you like this new addition. Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day! 

Upam, da vam je nov dodatek všeč. Hvala za obisk in čudovit dan vam želim!

Work Time Wednesday # 4

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I'm starting with another forgotten stamp set and this one is from Kaiser Craft and it's called Party Animals. I used banner from this set today and made a birthday card. I also used balloon dies from Mavelu that I haven't used many times before. Elephant is from another stamp set that is a baby set. Sentiment on the balloon says Just for you and on the bottom there is Happy Birthday sentiment. I used combination of Inktense and watercolour pencils with blender pen to colour everything. Some sequins and Stickles and we have a card. But I must be honest... Something just doesn't feel right with this card. Maybe I just need to sleep on it :)
To sredo začenjam z novim pozabljenim kompletom Party Animals, proizvajalca Kaiser Craft. Danes sem uporabila zastavice in naredila voščilnico za rojstni dan. Uporabila sem tudi rezalne šablonice Mavelu - balone, na katere sem prav tako malce pozabila. Slonček je iz seta štampiljk za novorojenčka. Na balone in spodnji del voščilnice sem odtisnila voščilo ter dodala nekaj bleščečih elementov. Je pa res, da se nekaj v meni s to voščilnico ne strinja povsem, pa ne vem točno kaj me moti. Morda pa mora samo prespati in jo pogledati jutri :)
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Creative Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I was nominated for Creative Blog Hop by Jessica (All the sparkle), my team mate at A Blog Named Hero Design team. I have to nominate two others and Michelle (Handmade by Michelle) and Linda (Linda Trace designs) agreed to share their answers next week.

1. What are you working on now? 
Last week was a very busy and stressful week and I'm playing catch up this week (that is slightly less busy, but still all over the place). I have not prepared cards for this week's posts and the weather is super gloomy so it's even harder for me to work on something creative. So there are my regular posts and I have some responsibilities for A Blog Named Hero coming up. Can't share any sneak peeks unless you want to see my messy desk :/ 

2. How does your work differ from others in your genre? 
I have no idea :) I go for cute or elegant designs and I love bright colours. I don't really think I have a distinct style jet, but you are free to correct me :) 

3. Why do you create what you do? 
I'm a very creative person, but I lost that during my college years because of all my responsibilities. When I discovered YouTube and card makers over there... it was like heaven opened to me. I love it. I don't love how time flies when I make cards, but I love the end product. And to make someone happy by sending then one of my hand made cards... priceless :) 

4. How does your creative process work? 
I usually decide on type of my card that I need (birthday, thank you...), than person (if there is a specific person that I'm making my card for) and I find a stamp that works for me at that moment. Then I choose colour medium and colour scheme and go from there. If I'm not happy with it I play around with different embellishements until I'm happy :) Some cards just fall together and go exactly like I imagined, some need a bit more time. It's a different process everytime.

Današnja druga objava je del poskakovanja po blogih s štirimi glavnimi vprašanji: 

1. S čim se trenutno ukvarjaš? 
Prejšnji teden je bil malce hektičen, tako da se moram najprej malo dohitet, saj nimam pripravljenih še nobenih stvari za objave v tem tednu, prav tako pa mi vreme trenutno prav nič ne pomaga, saj tudi normalnih fotografij ne morem narediti. Na žalost ne morem delit nobenih drobcev umetnin v nastajanju, razen če želite videti mojo razmetano mizo :/ 

2. Kako se tvoje delo razlikuje od ostalih? 
Pravzaprav ne vem čisto točno. Običajno se nagibam k simpatičnemu ali elegantnemu izgledu, prav tako pa imam zelo rada svetle in živahne barve. Nisem čisto prepričana v katero kategorijo bi moje stvari lahko sodile. 

3. Zakaj delaš to, kar delaš? 
Zato, ker sem želela ponovno obuditi kreativno osebo, ki se je v letih na faksu kar malce potisnila na stran. Preprosto mi je všeč od trenutka, ko sem svet voščilnic (ponovno) odkrila, po drugi strani pa je zelo dober občutek, ko nekdo prejme tvojo, ročno izdelano voščilnico ob prav posebni priložnosti. 

4. Kako deluje tvoj kreativni proces? 
Običajno imam izbrano temo za voščilnico in glede na osebo, ki bo voščilnico prejela (če sem v takšni situaciji), izberem glavno podobo in nato barvni medij, barvno shemo in tako naprej. Če mi nekaj ne deluje povsem v redu, se malce igram z različnimi dodatki, dokler nisem zadovoljna. Nekatere voščilnice mi kar "padejo" skupaj, včasih pa potrebujem dlje časa in več poskusov, da sem zadovoljna. Zelo različno. 

I hope you enjoyed reading some things about me and if you want to, you are more than welcome to answer these questions on your blog and share them with me. 

Upam, da ste z veseljem prebrali moje odgovore in če želite, lahko tudi vi odgovorite na vprašanja in delite svoje odgovore z menoj. 

Have a great day!

Želim vam čudovit dan!

Monday Madness # 4


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have an exciting post for today. I got my first order from Make the Day Special. I got a bit carried away but there were quite a few things that I also wanted but were out of stock (I guess that is a good thing). If you are not familiar with Make the Day Special it's an UK based online shop that carries quite a few USA products that are usually not available in Europe. I ordered some Hero Arts, Wplus9, Altenew, Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn stamps. Can't wait to play with them all :) There were a few more Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn stamps on my wish list (I need to get those Hedgehugs cuties soon), but I can get them next time. 
Za danes imam izjemno prijetno temo. Dobila sem namreč prvo naročilo iz trgovine Make the Day Special. Malce me je zaneslo, vendar na srečo kar precej stvari (ki sem jih še želela) ni bilo na zalogi, tako da so prihranjene za kdaj drugič. Če vam ta trgovinica ni znana, nekaj besed o njen. Je spletna trgovinica s sedežem v Veliki Britaniji, ki se je specializirala za težko dostopne izdelke iz ZDA in jih tako ponuja tudi evropskemu trgu brez večjih težav in dodatnega carinjenja na mejah. Naročila sem nekaj Hero Arts, Wplus9, Altenew, Mama Elephant in Lawn Fawn štampiljk. Na seznamu želja je bilo še nekaj Mama Elephant in Lawn Fawn štampiljk (nujno moram čim prej dobit Hedgehugs ježke), ampak še vedno obstaja naslednjič. 

These are the stamps that I got: 

Naročila sem naslednje štampiljke: 
Hero Arts: Miss You and Lill Hoot
Mama Elphant: Balloon Letter and Balloon Et Cetera
Mama Elephant: Cosmic Stars and Wplus9: Winter Pals
Wplus9: Just Geometric: Triangles and Banner Love
Lawn Fawn: Critters in the Arctic, Dream and Whale You Be Mine
Lawn Fawn: Milk and Cookies and Quinn's 123
Altenew: Whimsical Flowers and Painted Flowers

I will try to use all these beauties in the next month or so and share the end results with you. 

Poskusila bom uporabiti te lepotice v naslednjem mesecu in deliti z vami končne rezultate. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day! 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

A Blog Named Hero Challenge - Masking


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

There is a new challenge on A Blog Named Hero and it's called Masking. I hope you join us and have a chance to win a gift voucher from our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp.
Danes se na A Blog Named Hero začenja nov izziv, ki zahteva uporabo maskiranja. Upam, da se nam pridružite, saj imate možnost osvojiti darilni bona čudovitega sponzorja Simon Says Stamp.
http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/

My card for this challenge uses masking in two different ways. First I made a mask for my rose and I cut it out with tiny little border. I placed it where I wanted to have my image later on. Then I also masked background on a diagonal. I stamped my sentiment there using Soft Granite Hero Arts Ink.
Moja današnja voščilnica uporablja maskiranje v dveh variantah. Najprej sem odtisnila vrtnico na nekaj Post-it traku in jo izrezala z ožjim robom. Masko sem na osnovo voščilnice prilepila tam, kjer sem kasneje želela odtisniti vrtnico in jo pobarvati. Zamaskirala pa sem tudi diagonalo ozadja, kjer sem nato začela odtiskovati voščilo s Soft Granite Hero Arts blazinico.

When that was done, I removed both masks and stamped my rose and a few butterflies from Happy Everything stamp set that I got as a part of this month's collaboration with Clearly Besotted Stamps. I coloured these in with my Inktense pencils and some water. I added some sequins and finish my card off by adding Clear Wink of Stella over the Happy part in the background. I could not get a good picture of that sparkle, but you can see it in person.

Ko sem odstranila obe maski, sem s črno Hero Arts blazinico odtisnila vrtnico in nekaj metuljčkov, ki so del Happy Everything seta štampiljk Clearly Besotted Stamps, s katerimi smo imeli ta mesec sodelovanje na A Blog Named Hero. Vse odtise sem pobarvala z Inktense barvicami in nekaj vode. Za zaključek sem dodala par rumenih ploščatih bleščic in na voščilo nanesla še nakaj Wink of Stella prozornih bleščic. Na sliki se žal ne vidijo, ampak precej težko jih je fotografirati tako, da bi se lepo videle.

Thank you for coming over and I hope you join us :)

Hvala za obisk in upam, da se nam pridružite :)

Friday Fun # 3

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's card is a simple one. I did some masking of the numbers and rock 'n roll technique with some roses and leaves. I added the sentiment (We wish you a happy birthday!) and some Stickles and that was it :) It was a quick card (even with mask cutting), but it looks like it took you an hour to make :)
Današnja voščilnica je precej enostavna. Maskirala sem številke, na vrtnicah Najlepšega para pa sem uporabila rock 'n roll tehniko, kjer na rob štampiljke dodaš temnejši odtenek. Na enak način sem dodala tudi listke. Voščili sta deli Ustvarjalnega dotika, prav tako obe številk in Stickles bleščice, ki sem jih dodala še na koncu. Voščilnica, ki je bila narejena dokaj hitro (tudi z izrezovanjem mask), človek pa bi lahko rekel, da si zadnjo porabil vsaj eno uro :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great weekend!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit vikend!

Voščilnico prijavljam v mesečni izziv Ustvarjalnega dotika: Okrogla obletnica.

Work Time Wednesday # 3


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Ones again I'm using the Tall Flowers stamp from Hero Arts. I just got some new goodies (you can read about it on Monday) so I'm going to work on using each and every one of them in the next month or so. I'm also going to add some "unused" supplies from my stash and I'm going to talk about them next week ;)
Ponovno uporabljam Tall Flowers štampiljko Hero Arts-a. Ravno sem dobila tudi nekaj novih sladkorčkov (več o tem si lahko preberete v ponedeljek), tako da bom v naslednjem mesecu intenzivno delala na tem, da vsakega uporabim vsaj enkrat preden jih pospravim. Vsem novostim bom dodala tudi nekaj starejših neuporabljenih pripomočkov, kaj več o tem pa bom napisala naslednji teden ;)

I made a baby girl card today and used these flowers as a border around my main image that I coloured in with some watercolour pencils. I used Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink and love the brightnes of the colour. Sentiment (Little Miracle) and some Stickles and we are done :)
Naredila sem voščilnico za novorojenko in uporabila cvetke kot borduro okoli glavne sličice, ki sem jo pobarvala s pomočjo akvarelnih barvic. Uporabila sem Hero Arts Raspberry Jam blazinico in sem povsem navdušena nad živahnostjo barve. Voščilo in nekaj Stickles bleščic, pa smo zaključili. 

I'm super glad I started this series. It makes me feel very good about using things that I have in my stash. I hope I can keep it up.

Zelo sem vesela, da sem začela to serijo, ker je prav posebno zadovoljstvo, da uspem dejansko uporabiti tisto, kar je v moji zbirki. Upam, da bom še naprej uspela vztrajati pri tem.
 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Monday Madness # 3

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I hope you had a great Valentine's weekend. Mine was dedicated to getting my health back to normal, but I got a few great moments with my loved ones :)

Upam, da ste imeli čudovit valentinov vikend in pustno soboto. Moj vikend je bil posvečen večinoma mojemu zdravju, vmes pa je bilo tudi nekaj prijetnejših trenutkov :) 

I wasn't feeling up to card making so I did some colouring and organizing. I labelled my thin dies that I keep stored in a binder on magnetic sheets. It's a great system for me, but if I need to find name of my die it's quicker this way :) I just printed some labels on my computer and stuck it on magnetic sheets. It's easily removable if I change things up. 
Moje počutje ni bilo na višku, tako da sem malce barvala in organizirala stvari. Z nalepkami sem dopolnila moje tanke šablone, ki jih imam spravljene v mapi z magnetnimi podlagami. Sistem mi ustreza, tako pa lahko tudi ime šablone najdem zelo hitro, če ga potrebujem. Sprintala sem nalepke in jih nalepila direktno na magnete. Nalepke se brez težav potegne dol in prestavi, če bi kdaj menjala sistem ali vrstni red šablon. 
Thank you for coming over and hope you have a great week.

Hvala za obisk in upam, da je pred vami čudovit teden.

Happy Valentine's Day / Veselo valentinovo!

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm sorry I don't have another love card for you, but my health stopped me from making cards for last few days. I still wish you a happy and loved Valentine's Day with those who are the closest to you! 

Na žalost za vas danes nima  nove ljubezenske voščilnice, sam me je zdravje v zadnjih dneh pustilo na cedilu. Vseeno vam želim super ljubljeno valentinovo v krogu tistih, ki so vam najbližje (kar je dneva še ostalo). 

Have a wonderful weekend and see you again on Monday!

Super vikend vam želim in se vidimo ponovno v ponedeljek!

Friday Fun # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni

Today's card is a fun one with me playing around with some Distress Ink and water :) I smooshed my orange and red ink pads on my craft sheet and spriced it with water. I took a piece of watercolour paper and pressed it on top. After that first paper I pressed another one on top and got this effect that you can see on numbers. I love it (and you don't waste any ink that way) :)
Pri današnji voščilnici sem se malce igrala z Distress blazinicami in vodo. Pritisnila sem par rdečih in oranžnih Distress blazinic na podlago in vse skupaj poškropila z nekaj vode. Nato sem vzela kos akvarelnega papirja in ga pritisnila na vse skupaj, ga odstranila in pustila, da se posuši. Namesto, da bi ostanek pobrisala stran sem vzela še en kos akvarelnega papirja in ga pritisnila na preostanek barve. In nastalo je to, kar vidite na številkah in metuljih. Super efekt, pa še barve ne mečem stran. :)

I stamped and cut out the numbers and butterflies. I used some pattern paper for the background and anchor for my sentiment (Happy Birthday!) and numbers. Some foam adhesive and rhinestones and we have a fun and bright card ready to go :)
Na ta papir sem nato odtisnila številke in jih izrezala, s šablono pa sem izrezala tudi metulje. Za ozadje in podlago voščilu in številkam sem uporabila nekaj vzorčastega papirja. Malce penastega lepila in par draguljčkov, pa je voščilnica pripravljena. Voščilo in štampiljke 4 in 0 sem kupila v trgovinici Ustvarjalni dotik, kamor tudi prijavljam voščilnico za mesečni izziv: Okrogla obletnica. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Work Time Wednesday # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I started this series last week and today I'm continuing it with the same stamp from Hero Arts called Tall Flowers. I made two birthday cards with two colour schemes. I used flowers stamp for the background panel. I coloured it with Distress Markers, spayed it with some water and stamped it on watercolour paper. I did this a couple of times and used the second generation stamping as well. I sprayed some Perfect Pearls Mist over the whole pannel at the end. I sponged card bases with two colours of Distress Ink - Seedless Preserves and Broken China and pieced together sentiment from Mavelu. I cut the watercolour panel in half using Najlepši Par's dies to make two cards. I also colour coordinated Stickles and sequins that I used at the end and glued everything together.
Prejšnji teden sem začela serijo s Hero Arts štampiljko Tall Flowers, ki sem jo danes uporabila za ozadje. Pobarvala sem jo z Distress markerji in jo rahlo posprejala z vodo. Uporabila sem prvi in drugi odtis in to ponavljala, dokler ozadje ni bilo povsem zapolnjeno. Na konci sem celoten akvarelni papir posprejala s Perfect Pearls Mist sprejem. Osnovi za voščilnico sem senčila s Seedless Preserves in Broken China Distress blazinico, akvarelni papir pa s pomočjo zakrivljene šablonice Najlepšega para razrezala na dva dela in vsakega uporabila na svoji voščilnici. Voščilo sem sestavila skupaj s pomočjo Mavelu kompleta štampiljk in na koncu še barvno uskladila Stickles bleščice in ploščate bleščice, ki sem jih uporabila za okrasitev.

Which one do you like better?

Katera vam je bolj všeč?

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Valentine's # 7 / Valentinovo št. 7

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's Valentine's card is another wedding one. I used lacy heart and gold embossed it on white and black cardstock and cut them out (like bride and groom). I masked the middle of my card base, punched a heart out some Post-it and used that as a mask for another lacy stamp. I used Soft Sand Hero Arts ink for that. Memento Rich Coco for the sentiment (Day of most wonderful dreams), some foam adhesive for the hearts and some Stickles to make it all go together. 
Današnja ljubezensko obarvana voščilnica je ponovno poročna, pri kateri sem dva čipkasta srca zlato embosirala na bel in črn karton ter oba izrezala (mišljeno kot ženin in nevesta). Osrednji del voščilnice sem zamaskirala in iz Post-it listka s pomočjo štance izrezala srce. Ta listek sem nato uporabila kot novo masko in preko nje odštempljala drugo čipka, za katero sem uporabila Soft Sand Hero Arts blazinico. Na voščilu sem uporabila Memento Rich Coco blazinico, dodala sem nekaj penic za obema srcema in nekaj Stickles bleščic v lepilu.
Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Monday Madness # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's Monday Madnes is the "before" picture. Last week was an "after" and this I'm going to keep that picture a secret :) I had to work on some cards for this week and my A Blog Named Hero assignments and I took a quick picture before I started. It's quite clean, but I still don't have a lot of room. We will have to work on that. You might also notice a few packs of tissues on the left side... I got a little cold over the weekend but I'm working on getting rid of it ASAP :)
Današnji Monday Madness posnetek je zajel sliko moje mize pred začetkom ustvarjanja. Prejšnji teden je bil posnetek po ustvarjanju, današnjega pa bom raje zadržala zase :) Za ta teden sem morala pripraviti nekaj voščilnic in nekaj projektov za A Blog Named Hero, tako da sem na hitro pritisnila sliko stanja pred začetkom. Je precej pospravljeno, vendar na žalost prostora vseeno ni veliko. Vsaj za enkrat. Mogoče ste opazili tudi nekaj paketkov papirnatih robčkov na levi strani mize. Na žalost se mi je uspelo konec tedna prehladiti in pospešeno delamo proti bacilom. 

Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful day!

Valentine's # 6 / Valentinovo št. 6


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today's Valentine's Day card could be a wedding card or a birthday card for a very special person. I started with some embossing powder and a Hero Arts background stamp on a white panel. Roses are from MFT and I stamped them with Soft Cantaloupe and Pale Tomato Hero Arts ink and cut them out. I cut out a few stems and leaves (MFT and Memorybox die) and sponged the edges. I arranged everything together and glued some direct to paper and some with foam tape. I tied together the bouquet with some ribbon. I sponged the edge of my card base and some extra cardstock with Soft Cantaloupe ink to die cut Congratulations out.
 
Današnja valentinova voščilnica bi lahko bila poročna čestitka ali pa voščilnica ob rojstnem dnevu zelo posebne osebe. Začela sem z nekaj embosirnega prahu in Hero Arts štampiljko za ozadje. Vrtnice so od MFT in sem jih odtisnila s Soft Cantaloupe in Pale Tomato Hero Arts blazinico in jih izrezala ven. Izrezala sem še nekaj stebelc in listkov iz zelenega kartona, ki sem jih še senčila na robovih. Uredila sem šopek in vse skupaj prilepila direktno na embosirano ozadje ali pa z nekaj penastega lepila. Šopek sem skupaj zvezala z nekaj traku. Rob osnove sem senčila s Soft Cantaloupe blazinico in osenčila še nekaj dodatnega kartona, da sem izrezala voščilo iz njega in ga prilepila na zgornjem delu.
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Friday Fun # 1 - Baby Girl

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's new edition to my blog is a simple card share post called Friday Fun. It's fun to make and share cards and that is what I plan on doing every Friday. 

Današnja novost na blogu je Friday Fun objava, kjer bom delila različne voščilnice enostavno zato, ker jih je zabavno izdelovati in deliti z vami. Upam, da vas pomanjkanje slovenskega prevoda ne bo preveč motilo. 

I made a baby girl card for today and circles are the main focus ones again. I used a dolly stencil and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink for the background. Little bear is stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils and a blender pen and I cut him out. Sentiment says Little Miracle and I die cut that part with Nellie Snellen's scalloped circle die. Some organza ribbon, pink twine, rounded corners, Stickles, Liquid Pearls and we are done :)
Današnja voščilnica ob rojstvu punčke se ponovno vrti okoli krogov, le da sem tokrat uporabila čipkasto stencil šablono in Worn Lipstick Distress blazinico za ozadje. Medvedka sem odtisnila in pobarvala z akvarelnimi barvicam ter ga izrezala. Izrezan krog je Nellie Snellen's rezalna šablona, mali čudež štampiljka pa je od Ustvarjalnega dotika. Dodala sem še nekaj traku, roza vrvice, zaobljenih vogalov, Stickles bleščic v lepilu in Liquid Pearls pikic za zaključek. 
Thank you all for coming over and have a wonderful day! 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today's Valentines card is another butterfly one. I used pearl cardstock, purple cardstock and some vellum. I dry embossed the pearl cardstock, put it on a purple mat and glued two purple butterflies with a vellum outline and a few rhinestones on top of it. I also used a light purple card base.
Današnja voščilnica se ponovno vrti okoli metuljev. Uporabila sem perlast karton, vijolično podlago in paus papir. Perlast karton sem suho embosirala, ga prilepila na vijolično podlago za temnejšo obrobo in dodala še vijolične metulje z obrobo iz paus papirja in nekaj draguljčki. Za podlago sem uporabila svetlo vijoličen karton.
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!
