Work Time Wednesday with Carnival Cupcakes

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I used the most adorable stamp set today - Mama Elephant - Carnival Cupcakes :) I used the cupcake part of it but I will have to use those animals ASAP. 

Danes sem se igrala z enim izmed najbolj simpatičnih setov štampiljk Mama Elephant - Carnival Cupcakes :) Danes sem uporabila kolačke, ampak živalce kar kličejo po novih voščilnicah.

I used them for the background on my first card and one as a focal point. 
Na prvi voščilnici sem z njimi naredila ozadje in nato še en odtis izrezala kot glavni fokus. Voščilo prav perfektno paše zraven teh sladkih dobrot. 
I paper pieced cupcakes on the second one. I haven't done that in a long time. 
Na drugi voščilnici sem uporabila različne vzorčaste papirje. Tega se nisem lotila že nekaj časa. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

After Easter Monday Madness

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I hope you had great holiday weekend. I spent this Monday getting a few things organized in my new kitchen so I didn't get to cards. We will have to fix that tomorrow ;)
Upam, da so za vami fantastični prazniki. Jaz sem prost ponedeljek preživela v urejanju nove kuhinje, tako da nisem prišla do mojega ustvarjalnega kotička. Mislim, da bo jutri potrebno narediti nekaj glede tega ;) 

Have a great week!

Želim vam super teden!

Work Time Wednesday Easter Edition

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I don't have that many Easter stamping supplies. Two sentiments and one Easter egg stamp to be exact. But this year I made it work. I also used two balloon dies and cut a piece of it away to make it look like an egg and combined that with flowers and spring colours to make some Easter cards. 

Dejansko nimam veliko pripomočkov, ki so vezani na Veliko noč. Dve voščili in eno štampiljko pisanice, če smo natančni. Mislim, da mi je letos to uspelo izkoristiti do maksimuma. Uporabila sem še dve rezalni šabloni balona, ki sem jim odrezala "repek", in vse skupaj začinila z rožami in pomladanskimi barvami. Upam, da mi je uspelo. 

Here are two designs that I played with and there will be two more on Friday.

Danes vam pokažem dve varianti, dve pa boste videli v petek. 

First one:
Prva:
And the second one:
In še druga:

Using Up Your Technique Piece with Hero Arts # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I had a second background piece made from a couple of weeks ago and I used it to make four birthday cards today. I switched up the sentiment a bit and used different Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Today I used star dies in three different sizes.
Imela sem še eno pripravljeno ozadje izpred nekaj tednov, ki sem ga danes uporabila za izdelavo štirih rojstnodnevnih voščilnic. Uporabila sem zvezdice v treh različnih velikostih in malo spremenila voščila. Za nekaj leska sem uporabila različne kombinacije Pretty Pink Posh bleščic. 


Thank you for coming over and I hope you got inspired to look at your technique pieces in a bit of a different way. 

Hvala za obisk in upam, da ste dobili navdih za svoje kreacije, predvsem pa da boste na različne "poskusne" kose kartona gledali na malo drugačen način. 






Voščilnice prijavljam galerijo Najlepšega para za mesec marec

Work Time Wednesday Painted Butterflies

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I made three cards with Altenew Painted Butterflies today and I made them all one layer. I set up a challenge for myself and I love this set of stamps. Such a beautiful look.

Naredila sem tri voščilnice, pri katerih sem uporabila Altenew Painted Butterflies set štampiljk in jih naredila v eni sami ravnini. Običajno imam s tem težave in sem si tako postavila dvojni izziv. Resnično je ta set metuljev naravnost čudovit.

First I combined butterflies with Wplus9 Ranunculus stamp set.
Najprej sem metulje dodala cvetličnemu aranžmaju Wplus9, ki sem ga uporabila prejšnji teden.

Second one is combined with Peony Bouquet and Perfect pearls.
Pri drugi voščilnici sem za cvetlični del uporabila potonike, metuljem pa sem dodala nekaj Perfect Pearls. 
And last but not least I made a CAS card using only sentiment and butterflies (with some Sparkling Clear sequins).
In zadnji primer je CAS voščilnica z metulji in voščilom, ki sem jim dodala le nekaj Sparkling Clear bleščic. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!

Using Up Your Technique Piece with Hero Arts

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I shared two technique pieces on our A Blog Named Hero Facebook Page last week and today I'm sharing three cards that I made with one of those pieces.
Prejšnji teden sem na Facebook strani A Blog Named Hero delila dve ozadji in danes imam za vas pripravljene tri voščilnice, pri katerih sem uporabila eno izmed ozadji.
I die cut 9 butterflies out of that sponged background. I used three different birthday sentiments in Slovene and added different sparkle element to each - Liquid Pearls, rhinestones and Sparkling Clear sequins.
Izrezala sem 9 metuljev in senčenega ozadja in jih razporedila po treh voščilnicah. Za vsako sem uporabila drugačno voščilo in malce menjala postavitev, na vsaki voščilnici pa je tudi drugačen svetleč element. Uporabila sem Liquid Pearls, draguljčke in Sparkling Clear bleščice. 
This sponged piece would also be perfect for some Easter eggs. They would look adorable.

Tudi velikonočna jajčka, izrezana iz tega papirja, bi verjetno zgledala super. Bo potrebno preizkusiti. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

Friday Fun with Distressed Peony Bouquet

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I just couldn't resist getting this two stamp sets together. Distressed Patterns from MFT and Peony Bouquet from Altenew. Amazing combination. Can't wait to experiment some more :)
Nisem se mogla upreti kombinaciji setov Distressed Patterns od MFT in Peony Bouquet od Altenew. Res odlična kombinacija. Bo potrebno še malo eksperimentirati v tej smeri :) 

Have a great weekend!

Želim vam en super vikend!

Work Time Wednesday Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a card and three panels for you today using Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus stamp set. 

Danes sem za vas pripravila voščilnico in tri ozadja s cvetjem iz Wplus9 seta Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus. 

I used Distress markers direct to stamp and coloured it in. After a few sprays of water I stamped my image on the card front and repeated that two more times for three generation stamping. 
Za voščilnico sem na ozadju odtisnila štampiljko, ki sem jo prej pobarvala z Distress markerji in poškropila z malo vode in to ponovila še dvakrat za tri "generacije" odtisov. 

For my three pieces I embossed the image first with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl embossing powder. I did emboss resist on the first one with Abandoned Coral Distress ink fading it to the bottom and then I pressed a wet stencil over it to bleach the colour. 
Za ozadja sem štampiljko najprej embosirala s Hero Arts White Satin Pearl embosirnim prahom. Na prvem kartonu sem se odločila za resist tehniko in uporabila Abandoned Coral Distress blazinico. Čez vse skupaj sem položila mokro stencil šablono, da sem pobelila ozadje.

I used Distress Ink to colour my second image that is embossed on watercolour paper. I pressed my ink pads on my work surface and used it as a palette. 
Drugi odtis sem pobarvala z Distress blazinicami, ki sem jih pritisnila na podlago in jih uporabila kot barvno paleto. 

I used a cheap watercolour set for the last one and added some splatters over the top. 
Na zadnjem sem uporabila en poceni komplet vodenih barvic z dodatkom poškropljenega ozadja. 

I love how my card turned out and the second piece coloured with Distress Ink. I'm not so sure about other two. They might not make it onto a finished card. What do you think? 

Odtisi na voščilnici so mi zelo všeč, prav tako barvanje z Distress blazinicami, za ostala dva pa nisem najbolj prepričana, da bosta našla pot na kakšno voščilnico. Kaj pa vi mislite?

Thank you for coming over and have a great day! 

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

Firday Fun finishing the cards

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I promised three finished cards on Wednesday and here they are.

V sredo sem obljubila dokončane voščilnice in to je to.

First one is a Thank you card. I combined craft and green. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Wink of Stella on the frame and sentiment. 
Na prvi voščilnici sem združila kraft in zeleno barvo. Dodala sem še različno velike bleščice Pretty Pink Posh in nekaj Wink of Stella bleščic na okvirju in izrezku hvala. 
I stamped a full peony in purple for my second one along with a few leaves and cut them all out. With an added circle die and some embossed cardstock I stamped half on my sentiment in black (Best) and die cut the other one (wishes) from black cardstock. I had to add some Stickles glitter in different shades. 
Za drugo voščilnico sem odtisnila in izrezala cvet in par listov. S pomočjo šablon sem izrezala še krog in suho embosirala par trakov kartona. Del voščila sem odtisnila s črno blazinico, drugi del pa sem iz črnega kartona izrezala. Nisem se mogla upreti in sem na različne dele dodala različne odtenke Stickles bleščic. 
I kept it simple for the darkest background. I die cut two butterflies and the Congratulations sentiment from silver glitter paper and added a silver strip on the left side and a decorative piece of white cardstock on the right side. This could easily be a wedding card with that colour scheme. 
Za najtemnejše ozadje nisem želela pretiravati. Iz srebrnega bleščečega papirja sem izrezala voščilo in dva metulja ter dodala še ozek trak na levi strani. Da sem malo razbila pestro ozadje, sem na desni strani nalepila dekorativno izrezan kos belega kartona. Morda bi to lahko bila poročna voščilnica za poroko v takšni barvni shemi. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great end of the week.

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super konec tedna. 

Mateja

I'm adding the first card into March gallery over at Najlepši par, second card into Floral Work It Wednesday Challenge and Touchy Feely Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (dry embossed strips) and finally the last card into Take a Leap Into the Unknown Simon Says Monday Challenge (wedding card).

Work Time Wednesday Peony Bouquet

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have started working with my Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set last Friday, but today I stamped and experimented doing some backgrounds in different colours.
Že prejšnji petek sem eksperimentirala z novim setom Altenew Peony Bouquet, danes pa sem naredila tri različna ozadja.
I used the outline and layer for the darkest shade in all three backgrounds. I used Soft Sand, Soft Purple and Raspberry Jam Hero Arts ink. I think they turned out beautiful and make a great base for lots of different cards.
Uporabila sem štampiljko za obrobo in štampiljko namenjeno najtemnejšemu odtenku. Pri vseh treh sem odtisnila ti dve plasti, uporabila pa sem tri barve: Soft Sand, Soft Purple in Raspberry Jam Hero Arts blazinice. V vseh primerih nastane čudovito ozadje, ki pa je osnova za precej različne voščilnice. Vrnite se v petek, ko boste lahko videli, kaj sem naredila s temi osnovami. 
Come back on Friday to see what I did with them :)

Vrnite se v petek, ko boste lahko videli, kaj sem naredila s temi osnovami. 

Have a great day!

Želim vam en super dan!
