Friday Fun # 15

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have another birthday card for you today and it is a play on pattern paper and die cuts coloured in with glitter. I glued three die cut outlines and glued them on a piece of pattern paper. Instead of colouring all those die cut pieces and gluing them back in the right place I took my beloved Stickles and coloured the roses in. 
Danes imam za vas ponovno rojstnodnevno voščilnico, kjer sem se igrala z vzorčastim papirjem in izrezki, ki sem jih pobarvala z bleščicami. Izrezke sem prilepila na ozadje iz vzorčastega papirja, ker pa se nisem želela ubadati z vsemi izrezki, da bi jih pobarvala in ponovno prilepila na pravo mesto, sem vzela nekaj barv Stickles bleščic in notranjost izrezkov "pobarvala" z različnimi barvami. 
It's a different look but I like it. Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful weekend. 

Malce drugačen pristop k barvanju, ampak ne zgleda slabo. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit vikend.

Try It Out Thursday # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

There was no Try It Out Thursday for some time, but I'm back with another experiment. I bought Ranger Sticky embossing powder to try and use it instead of Flitter glue by IndigoBlu for the Metallic Flakes. I used Flitter glue before and it's a bit messy and my stamps were sticky even after I cleaned them like you are supposed to. Sticky embossing powder sounds much easier so I tried it.

Že nekaj časa ni bili takšne objave v četrtek, ampak danes sem nazaj z manjšim eksperimentom. Kupila sem Ranger Sticky embosirni prah da bi ga uporabila namesto Flitter lepila, ki ga je IndigoBlu predvideval za uporabo z metalnimi lističi. Delo s tem lepilom se mi je zdelo malce preveč "lepljivo", saj so bile štampiljke lepljive še nekaj časa, čeprav sem jih očistila tako, kot je rečeno v navodilih. Lepljiv embosirni prah se mi je zdel malce manj zapleten, tako da sem želela poskusiti. 
 
I used Versamark and Sticky embossing powder like any other but when I heated it up it got sticky. I pressed the flakes on top of that and the rub it away with the sponge. The flakes are still a bit messy, but they stuck on top of the image. 

Prah sem uporabila tako kot vsak drug embosirni prah z Versamark blazinico. Ko sem ga segrela se je spremenil v lepljiv odtis na katerega sem pritisnila metalne lističe. Vse skupaj sem dobro zdrgnila z gobico, ki je namenjena temu. Lisiči so še vedno precej nadležni, saj je na koncu njihov prah povsod, ampak končni rezultat je vseeno zelo lep, tako da se splača. 

My thoughts? Sticky is convenient as far as cleaning your stamp goes and al the stickiness left behind, but I think that Flitter glue captures more detail and the surface is a bit uneven. Flakes still sparkle beautifully so I think it's a good alternative. I can't wait to try this with glitter.

Moje mnenje? Sticky prah je zelo priročen kar se tiče čiščenja štampiljk in ukvarjanja z lepljivimi pripomočki, je pa res, da Flitter lepilo ohrani več podrobnosti odtisa, površina odtisa pa je precej bolj gladka kot pri uporabi prahu. Lističi se še vedno zelo lepo bleščijo, tako da mislim, da je Sticky embosirni prah vseeno super alternativa lepilu. Preizkusiti ga bo potrebno še z bleščicami. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan.

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today is the last card made with my new orchids dies as a WTW series and I made a birthday card using some pattern paper, Hero Arts inks and sponge daubers.

Monday Madness # 17

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm happy to report that my desk reorganization is working for me. I'm still reaching for my things in the wrong direction, but slowly I'm getting it. How do I know it's working? I can keep the desk quite tidy without any extra work. I put things back without thinking about it. I made quite a few cards since my reorganization and it's still clear. Well you can see my latest purchase... I ran out of white heavy weight cardstock and I'm trying this new one from Fabriano in 300 and 240 g/sq m weight. 
Z veseljem poročam, da je moja reorganizacija mize zelo uspešna. Sicer se še vedno zgodi, da sežem na napačen konec mize po stvari, ki sem jih premaknila, vendar se počasi navajam. In kako vem, da sem bila uspešna? Miza ostaja precej lepo pospravljena brez posebnega dodatnega truda, ker stvari dan nazaj na svoje mesto. V zadnjem tednu sem naredila kar nekaj voščilnic, pa je miza še vedno v zelo lepem stanju. Razen kupa kartona, ki ga lahko vidite na fotografiji. Zmanjkalo mi je kartona za osnove voščilnic, zato sem kupila Fabriano 300 in 240 gramski karton. 

Thank you for coming over and I hope your week started on a good note :)


Hvala za obisk in upam, da se je vaš teden začel odlično :)

Friday Fun # 14

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I wanted to play a little today and I made this card using masking, Altenew stamps and Hero Arts inks. Masking is one of my favourite techniques because there is nothing better than removing that mask and finding out how it looks. 
Danes sem se želela malce poigrati in sem zato uporabila masko, Altenew set štampiljk in Hero Arts blazinice. Maskiranje je ena izmed mojih najljubših tehnik, ker je res super občutek, ko odstraniš masko in prvič vidiš kaj ti je uspelo ustvariti. 

Thank you for coming over today and have a great end of the week :)

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit konec tedna, čeprav bo malce deževno :)

A Blog Named Hero Challenge - New


Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

We have a new challenge for you today over at A Blog Named Hero. It called New and you can use new products, new technique or anything like that. 

Na A Blog Named Hero imamo za vas pripravljen nov izziv Novost. Uporabite novo tehniko, nove pripomočke ali kaj podobnega.
Today I did something that I have not seen jet. That is stamping on stenciled embossing paste. I will have to practice this more and try things out, but it came out quite nice. I used Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms that I inked with Hero Arts Silver ink (pigment ink). I applied my embossing paste as usual and after removing the stencil stamped my image over top. I cleaned everything right away but I don't know if the paste has any effect on the stamp so do not blame me if it falls apart. Mine is still ok, but I can't promise anything. 
Za mojo današnjo voščilnico sem naredila nekaj, kar še nisem zasledila nikjer drugje. Štampiljko sem uporabila preko embosirne paste, ki sem jo nanesla tako, kot smo navajeni. Uporabila sem plastično šablono in takoj, ko sem jo odstranila pritisnila gor Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms štampiljke, ki sem jih najprej pritisnila na Hero Arts srebrno blazinico. Moja štampiljka je še v redu, vendar ne morem obljubiti, da pasta ne bo poškodovala silikonske štampiljke. Mojo sem takoj zelo dobro očistila, tako da bodite previdni pri preizkušanju. 

It's hard to capture the dimension in a photo, but in real life you can see and feel the indents. It would probably be even more pronounced if I used a stencil with larger areas for the paste.
Male težko je prikazati dimenzijo na fotografiji, vendar se v živo vidijo vdrtine v pasti, prav tako se jih tudi čuti. Verjetno bi prišlo to še bolj do izraza, če bi bile površine paste malce večje. 

Take a look at work from the amazing design team and I hope you join us and have a got at winning a 25 $ gift voucher from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp

Monday Madness # 16

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I did some cleaning and organizing today. I feel so much better now but we still have to find out if this new setup is working for me (tomorrow). I sure hope so because it looks much better :) When was the last time you flipped your work space upside down?

Danes sem pospravljala, prestavljala in organizirala. Počutim se precej bolje, še vedno pa moram ugotoviti, če mi nova postavitev ustreza ali ne (jutri). Močno upam da, ker zgleda precej lepše :) Kdaj ste pa vi nazadnje obrnili svoj delovni prostor na glavo?

Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful week.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit teden.

Friday Fun # 13

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have been invited to a first holy communion on Sunday so I made this card for the little girl. I just played with some embossing, shapes, alphabet stamps and a lot of glitter. I hope she likes it. 
V nedeljo sem povabljena na prvo sveto obhajilo, zato sem naredila to čestitko za deklico. Poigrala sem se z embosiranjem, oblikami, črkami in veliko bleščicami. Upam, da ji bo všeč. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great and of the week. 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit konec tedna (vsaj vreme naj bi bilo malo lepše).

Work Time Wednesday # 13 (on a Thursday)

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm a day late... I apologise... I had a huge exam on Tuesday. I'm officially a teacher now and it's an amazing feeling (I just need a job now). But that means I was studying like crazy and completely caput yesterday. Absolutely no energy to work on a card. But today I got to play a little and I decided to play with my last bought things from Najlepši par. I made a wedding or a classy birthday card today since that sentiment says Congratulations. I took inspiration from one of my orchids that are white with purple spots. I cut pieces of orchids from watercolour paper, wetted them and dropped some Distress ink in Seedless Preserves on them with a brush. 
Zamujam en dan... Se iskreno opravičujem, vendar sem imela v torek popoldne strokovni izpit in sem bila včeraj povsem brez energije. Sedaj sem učiteljica z vsemi izpolnjenimi zahtevami, samo še službo je potrebno dobit. Po 14ih dneh intenzivnega učenja sem bila včeraj resnično povsem kaput. Danes pa sem se uspela spraviti k ustvarjalni mizi in se odločila, da bo moj fokus za par tednov moj zadnji nakup pri Najlepšem paru. Naredila sem poročno voščilnico, ki bi lahko bila tudi zelo elegantna rojstnodnevna voščilnica. Inspiracija za barve je bila ena izmed mojih orhidej, ki je bela z vijoličastimi pikami. Cvetove sem najprej izrezala iz akvarelnega papirja in jih zmočila, nato pa sem s čopičem prenesla nekaj Distress blazinice v barvi Seedless Preserves in pustila, da se je barva razlezla po svoje. 
I hope you had a less stressful beginning of this week and thank you for waiting another day for this card. 

Upam, da je bil vaš začetek tedna precej manj stresen in najlepša hvala za potrpežljivost. 

Mateja

Voščilnico dodajam v galerijo Najlepšega para za mesec maj.

Friday Fun # 12

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

This card is a by-product of my Wednesday card... I played with my pattern papers and my most used die and this is what came out. The colours are more serious, but elegant in a way. 
Današnja voščilnica je posledica sredine, saj sem nadaljevala z igranjem z vzorčastim papirjem, dodala pa sem še mojo najbolj uporabljeno rezalno šablona. Barve so malce bolj resne, ampak tudi bolj elegantne. 

Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful end of the week.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super konec tedna.

Work Time Wednesday # 12

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Since I took a break last week I have been having some mojo problems... That is why I have not decided on a specific stamp set/supply to use multiple times (like I planned WTW to be), but found a pattern paper I liked and build a card around that. It turned out better than I hoped :)
Po krajšem odmoru imam nekaj težav z navdihom, zato se še nisem odločila za en pripomoček, ki bi ga uporabila na več izdelkih (tako kot so bile WTW sprva mišljene), našla pa sem vzorčast papir, ki mi je bil všeč in sem okoli njega zgradila voščilnico. Vse skupaj je izpadlo bolje, kot je bilo sprva videti:)

I hope I have something specific for you next time. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Upam, da se bom do naslednjič odločila za en pripomoček in ga uporabila. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Monday Madness # 14

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm back after a short break. I'm super busy studying for next week so I'm not sure about posts for this week, but I will try my best. But first I have to clean up my desk to get to some working surface.
Po krajši pavzi se ponovno oglašam. Na žalost mnogo zaposlena z učenjem za naslednji teden, tako da še nisem prepričana kako bomo speljali objave za ta teden, vendar držim pesti, da mi bo uspelo. Najprej pa bo na sporedu pospravljanje, da sploh pridem do delovne površine.

Thank you for coming over and have a great week!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit teden!
