Monday Madness # 45

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I had some time to just sit down and play and that is what I did. This was taken somewhere in the middle of my "game" :)
Danes sem imela nekaj časa, da sem se v miru usedla in malo igrala. Fotografija je bila posneta nekje na sredini te igre :) 

I wish you a great start of your week.

Želim vam en super začetek tedna!

Friday Fun with Peony Bouquet

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I couldn't resist this stamp set from Altenew. It is gorgeous and it's amazing how these flower come to life with every added layer. I just know that this will be one of my go to stamp sets :) 
Enostavno se temu setu štampiljk ni bilo mogoče upirati. Cvetovi dobesedno oživijo z vsakim dodanim odtisom. Prepričana sem, da bo to eden izmed tistih setov, h kateremu se bom vračala vedno znova :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a wonderful weekend!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit konec tedna.

I'm adding this card into Simon Says Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge and Work It Wednesday Floral Challenge. Voščilnico dodajam tudi v februarsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

Work Time Wednesday with Hero Arts and Distress Markers

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

At the beginning of the year there were a bunch of goals flying around even in the crafting community. One caught my attention. Jennifer McGuire said that she will try to make multiple cards in one go. If you're making one, you can easily make two. I tried that today. I love this poppy stamp set from Hero arts and I used Distress markers to colour stamp and then spritzed some water and stamped it. I repeated water and stamping again and got two images. It would be a waste not to make the second impression since it is softer, but still beautiful.

Na začetku leta je bilo povsod ogromno novoletnih zaobljub in ciljev tudi v ustvarjalnem svetu. Ena izmed teh izjav mi je ostala v glavi. Jennifer McGuire je rekla, da je v novem letu njen cilj narediti več voščilnic na enkrat. Če delaš eno, je zelo hitro lahko narejena še ena. To teorijo sem danes preizkusila. Štampiljko Hero Arts sem pobarvala z Distress markerji in vse skupaj poškropila z malo vode. Naredila sem odtis in postopek z vodo ponovila še enkrat. Drugi odtis je svetlejši, vendar bi bilo škoda, da ga ne bi naredila. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Bookmarks with Hero Arts

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I have quite a few background stamps from Hero Arts and I love them and love using them. Not only on my cards. I found a few nice long pieces of cardstock after cleaning up my desk and I decided to make a few bookmarks. I used a background and two inks from Hero Arts per bookmark and I added some Stickles and piece of ribbon to each. 
V svoji zbirki imam kar nekaj Hero Arts velikih štampiljk za ozadja, ki jih obožujem in jih velikokrat uporabljam. In to ne samo za voščilnice. Med pospravljanjem mize sem našla par dolgih kosov kartona, tako da sem se odločila narediti par knjižnih kazal. Na vsakem sem uporabila eno ozadje in dve Hero Arts blazinici, na koncu pa sem dodala še nekaj Stickles bleščic in trak na vrhu. 
Do you think bookmarks should be laminated? I can't decide. Tell me what do you think and thank you for coming over! 

Se vam zdi bolj smiselno, da so kazala tudi plastificirana? Vesela bom vašega mnenja v komentarjih in najlepša hvala za obisk!

Monday Desk Madness

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Can someone please explain to me how a perfectly clean and organized desk turns into this mess when I blink? This is just beyond me :/ Happy Monday everyone ;)

Mi lahko prosim nekdo razloži, kako se lahko prazna in pospravljena miza spremeni v ta kup nesreče tako, ko ji obrnem hrbet? Nikakor mi ne gre v račun :/ Pa čudovit ponedeljek vam želim ;)

Friday Fun Thank you

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I continued my inspiration from my last post and made a thank you card. This one is a quicker version, because I sponged the sentiment directly to my card base.

Nadaljevala sem z navdihom prejšnje objave in naredila še zahvalnico. Ta je malce hitrejša verzija, saj sem voščilo senčila direktno na voščilnico. 

I hope you are having a great weekend :)

Upam, da uživate prost vikend in lepo vreme :)

Voščilnico dodajam v februarsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

Work Time Wednesday with Najlepši par

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today's focus is a stencil that has a corner flower cluster and two big sentiments Thank you and Congratulations. I utilized the flowers for my first card and used some modellier creme from Viva. I stamped my bear on the inside and coloured him with my watercolour pencils.

Danes sem se osredotočila na plastično šablono Najlepšega para z dvema napisoma in kotom z rožicami. Na prvi voščilnici sem uporabila del z rožicami in preko šablone nanesla nekaj Viva modelirne kreme. Na sredino sem odtisnila medvedka in ga pobarvala z akvarelnimi barvicami.  

My second card is a super vibrant one. I sponged three primary colours over the Congratulations part and made a rainbow sentiment. I cut it out and glued it on my stencilled background. I had to add a butterfly that I also sponged and some Stickles.

Druga voščilnica pa je zelo barvita, saj sem s pomočjo treh primarnih barv preko šablone nasenčila mavrične čestitke in jih nato izrezala. Napis sem prilepila na osnovo, na katero sem preko druge šablone senčila ozadje. Morala sem dodati še metulja, ki sem ga pobarvala na enak način, za piko na I pa je bilo še nekaj Stickles bleščic. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

It's from Seven Hills Crafts (former Make the Day Special). I got a few things from new releases and I got them just in a nick of time because they were sold out after I made my purchase. It took the package 6 days to come from UK to Slovenia which is awesome :) So here are my beauties :) 

Ta teden bom morala objave zamakniti za en dan, ker mi moj urnik ne dopušča druge možnosti (razen da ne objavim nič), tako da prosim za nekaj potrpljenja. Danes imam za vas par čudovitih novosti, ki sem jih naročila v trgovini Seven Hills Crafts (nekdanja Make the Day Special). Naročila sem nekaj najnovejših stvari, ki so bile razprodane takoj po tistem, ko sem svoje naročilo oddala. Paketek je potoval 6 dni iz Velike Britanije v Slovenijo, kar je super :) In tukaj so moje najnovejše lepotičke :) 
 
Hero Arts White and White Satin Pearl embossing powder
Altenew Peony Bouquet
Altenew Painted Butterflies
Wplus9 Flora & Fauna 2
Wplus9 Preety Peonies
My Favourite Things Etched Flower Background Stamp
My Favourite Things Garden Flourish Background Stamp
My Favourite Things Distressed Patterns

Which one is your favourite?

Katera pa je vam najbolj všeč? 

Have a great day!

Želim vam super dan!

Sweet Valentines # 4

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

It's The day and I have a sweet bear card for you today. It looks like an ordinary card but when you tip it in the light the heart shines :) Liquid Pearls do that :)

Danes je V dan in za vas imam pripravljeno voščilnico s srčkanim medvedkom. Sprva zgleda povsem običajna voščilnica, ko pa jo premaknete v pravi svetlobi se srce zasveti. To je zasluga Liquid Pearls :) 
I hope you had a wonderful day with your loved ones!

Upam, da ste preživeli čudovit dan v krogu najdražjih!

Sweet Valentines # 3

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm going pink all the way today :) Emboss resist can be such a fun technique. I love it. And these Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh are growing on me :) You can use other colours if you don't like pink ;)

Danes pa grem povsem v roza vode :) Resist tehnika je zelo zabavna in ena mojih najljubših. In Sparkling Clear bleščice od Pretty Pink Posh so mi čedalje ljubše :) Če vam roza ni všeč, pa uporabite drugo barvo ;)

Thank you for coming over and have a great day.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan.

Sweet Valentines #2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I have a softer, sweeter love card for you. I stamped this amazing Altenew stamps with Soft Sand Hero Arts ink and then used a red pencil to shade it a little bit. I also added a few die cut hearts in pink and stencilled hearts in red.  
Danes sem ustvarila svetlejšo, nežnejšo voščilnico.  S Soft Sand Hero Arts blazinico sem odtisnila te čudovite Altenew štampiljke in potem z navadno rdečo barvico dodala nekaj senčenja. Na koncu sem dodala še nekaj roza izrezanih srčkov ter par rdečih srčkov senčenih preko šablone. 

I love this kind of "colouring" for this stamp set. It looks like a print. Thank you for coming over and have a great day. 

To je eden izmed mojih najljubših načinov "barvanja" tega seta štampiljk. Končni izdelek zgleda kot print. Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

Sweet Valentines # 1

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Since Valentine's is approaching, I'm going Valentine's and/or Love themed this week :) My first card is not too sweet and not super serious. Somewhere in the middle :)

Glede na to, da se Valentinovo hitro približuje, bo na mojem blogu ta teden glavna tema Valentinovo oz. ljubezen. Moja prva voščilnica ni preveč pocukrana, prav tako pa ni preveč resna. Ravno nekje na sredini :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great week!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super teden.

Friday Fun with Liquid Pearls

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I had some problem with my pictures so I'm posting this card today. I love shimmer on my cards so colouring with Liquid Pearls is a great solution. I love these sentiments from Najlepši par and I think they can make any card perfect :) 
Včeraj sem imela nekaj težav s fotografijami, zato objavljam voščilnico danes. Glede na to, da so mi všeč bleščeče voščilnice, mislim da je barvanje z Liquid Pearls idealna izbira. Predvsem pa sem zadnje čase obsedena s setom štampiljk od Najlepšega para, s katerim je vsaka voščilnica v trenutku popolna :)

Thank you for coming over and have a great weekend!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super vikend!

Voščilnico dodajam v februarsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

Work Time Wednesday with MFT Rose Builder stencil

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a stencil to focus on for today. It's the Rose Builder from My Favourite Things. There is a rose in two sizes and another stem version with a couple of leaves. I did three different cards with different techniques.

Današnji izbrani pripomoček je plastična stencil šablona Rose Builder od My Favourite Things. Na šabloni sta dva cvetova vrtnice v različnih velikostih, nekaj listov in vrtnica na peclju. Naredila sem tri različne voščilnice z različnimi tehnikami. 
I used watercolour pencils for my first one. I traced the stencil and then went over parts of it with a brush and water.

Za prvo sem uporabila akvarelne barvice. Šablono sem najprej obrisala, nato pa s čopičem barvo malo razmazala. 

Second one is traditional ink blending over the stencil for my entire card using two colours of ink. I die cut a label and temporally adhered it on my card base to stencil over it. After I was done I put some foam tape underneath it.

Druga je najbolj običajen postopek uporabe plastične šablone. Uporabila sem blazinico za senčenje in dve različni barvi blazinice. Dekorativno obliko sem izrezala in začasno prilepila na mesto, kjer sem jo želela na koncu. Senčila sem po vsej voščilnici, na koncu pa pod izrezek dodala še malo penastega lepila.

Last but not least... I used some white glue over the stencil and I sprinkled glitter over it.

Še zadnja ampak ne najmanj pomembna... Preko šablone sem nanesla belo lepilo in preko posula bleščice. 
My camera went crazy trying to focus on that sparkle :)

Mojemu fotoaparatu se je malce zmešalo, ko je poskušal izostriti na vseh teh bleščicah :) 

I hope I gave you some ideas and thank you for coming over :)

Upam, da ste dobili kakšno idejo in najlepša hvala za obisk. 

Mateja

I'm entering the second card into A Blog Named Hero: A Bit of Sparkle Challenge (My sparkle elements are Liquid Pearls and Stickles. I also used Green Hills, Soft Cantaloupe and Raspberry Jam inks from Hero Arts).
Prvo voščilnico pa dodajam v februarsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

Monday Madness and 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

30 Days Coloring Challenge is starting today and I decided to participate again. I'm doing some prep work and there on the right is a "few" of my stamp sets that I want to colour, I have some individual images stamped on some scrap cardstock and I have a few card bases stamped and ready for some colour.
Danes se začenja 30 Days Coloring Challenge in odločila sem se, da ponovno poskusim sodelovati. Opravila sem nekaj priprave in na desni strani mize lahko vidite kup setov, ki jih želim pobarvati oz. ki bi se lahko znašli med pobarvanimi, nekaj odtisov sem naredila na ostanke kartona, pripravila pa sem si tudi par voščilnic z odtisi, ki čakajo na barvo. 

Will you be participating?

Boste tudi vi sodelovali?
