Blue and Silver Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a birthday card for you today because there is Birthday Card challenge going on at A Blog Named Hero at the moment. I used this beautiful Deco Pattern Stencil for the background with a few Hero Arts blue inks and Birthday Stamp & Cut set for everything else. I silver embossed confetti on the background and over the cake. Because sprinkles can be silver right?
Danes imam za vas rojstnodnevno voščilnico, sa je je to tema izziva na A Blog Named Hero. Uporabila sem Deco Pattern Stencil in par modrih Hero Arts blazinic ter Birthday Stamp & Cut set za vse ostalo. Konfete sem embosirala s srebrnim prahom na ozadje in torto. Ker srebrne mrvice sigurno obstajajo. A ne? 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 


Tropical Summertime Fun

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

There is still Summertime Fun Challenge going on over at A Blog Named Hero and I used tropical colours on my card today.

Na A Blog Named Hero še vedno potek izziv Poletna zabava in ravno zato sem danes na voščilnici uporabila tropske barve.
I made the background with Deco Pattern Stencil and Green Hills, Butter Bar and Pale Tomato ink. Flowers are from older Blossom Art set and sentiment from OWH Lil Hoot set. I stamped the flowers where I used Pale Tomato ink on the background and added three butterflies cut from Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die.

Ozadje sem naredila s to Deco Pattern šablono ter Green Hills, Butter Bar in Pale Tomato blazinicami. Cvet je iz starejšega Blossom Art seta, voščilo pa iz OWH Lil Hoot seta. Cvetove sem odtisnila na tistih koncih, kjer sem uporabila več Pale Tomato barve dodala pa sem še tri metulje, izrezane z Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die rezalno šablono. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


Sumertime Fun

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

When I hear of summertime and cards I instantly think of wedding cards. It's wedding season after all. In this Hero Arts Filigree Border Fancy Die is perfect for it. I used it on some pattern paper with glitter in light pink. I added two die cut borders and applied Grape Juice ink on die cut Congratulations die and two Memory Box butterflies. I also added Versa Mark ink on top and two coats of White Satin Embossing Powder. That is such a beautiful finish.
Ko slišim besede poletna zabava, pomislim na poroko in s tem poročne voščilnice. Saj je navsezadnje sezona za poroke. In Hero Arts Filigree Border Fancy Die rezalna šablona je kot naročena za to priložnost. Izrezala sem dva robova iz svetlo roza vzorčastega papirja z dodanimi bleščicami. Voščilo in oba metulja sem pobarvala z Grape Juice blazinico in s pomočjo Versa Mark blazinice nanesla še dve plasti White Satin embosirnega prahu. Res čudovit sijaj. 
There is Summertime Fun Challenge over at A Blog Named Hero and I can't wait to see how you interpret that in your creations. Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Na A Blog Named Hero je izziv Poletna zabava in komaj čakam, da vidim vašo interpretacijo in vaše kreacije. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


I'm Here For You

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Sympathy cards are one of the most difficult cards to make so I usually keep it very simple. Today I made a card using some leftover watercolor paper and Hero Arts Paper Layering Feather die. I also added the sentiment from Color Layering Hydrangea stamp set and some black splatters.
Sožalnice so ene najtežjih voščilnic, ki jih moraš občasno narediti, tako da običajno oblikovanje pustim zelo preprosto. Današnjo voščilnico sem naredila z nekaj ostanki akvarelnega papirja in Hero Arts Paper Layering Feather rezalno šablono. Voščilo je iz Color Layering Hydrangea seta štampiljk, dodala pa sem še nekaj črnih pack. 
You still have some time to enter this month's Watercolor challenge over at A Blog Named Hero. Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Imate še nekaj dni, da svoje mojstrovine dodate na A Blog Named Hero, kjer je trenuten izziv akvarel. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan!


A Blgo Named Hero Watercolor Challenge

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

There is a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero called Watercolor and I used Hero Arts (non reactive) inks that really make an interesting watercolor medium. I used Cornflower and Raspberry Jam inks with Perfect Pearls mist on a piece of watercolor paper and then die cut it with Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die to make two cards. 
Na A Blog Named Hero je nov izziv Akvarel in uporabila sem Hero Arts (nereaktivne) blazinice, ki so pravzaprav zelo zanimiv akvarelni medium. Uporabila sem Cornflower in Raspberry Jam blazinici s Perfect Pearls sprejem na akvarelnem papirju. Izrez sem naredila s Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die šablono in tako naredila dve voščilnici.
First card uses the "big" part over a purple cardstock and sentiment with three biggest butterflies. Second one uses die cut butterflies in a spiral with stamped sentiment that was supposed to say Dream & Fly... but I got distracted by my little one and I didn't want to cover the butterflies with a strip and a new sentiment. The message is still the same :) 
"Večji" del sem prilepila na vijoličen karton, dodala voščilo in tri največje izrezane metulje. Na drugi voščilnici pa sem uporabila metulje in jih razporedila v spiralo z odtisnjenim voščilom, ki bi pravzaprav moral biti sestavljen ravno obratno (Dream & Fly), pa me je moja mala žabica zamotila in nisem opazila napake dokler ni bilo že prepozno. Lahko bi "napako" prekrila, ampak bi tako prekrila tudi metulje in sporočilo je načeloma vseeno razumljivo :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 



Put A Flower On It - A Blog Named Hero

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I made a card using some fussy cut hydrangeas from a beautiful Hero Arts set Color Layering Hydrangea stamped with Soft Purple and Grape Juice ink for the flowers and Green Hills for the leaves. I used the sentiment from the same stamp set and added some texture on my card base with Soft Sky ink over Deco Pattern stencil and a few butterflies from Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die. This is a beautiful stamp set and it does not take long to cut them out (just watch a movie or a favourite YouTuber while you are doing it) and they fill the card beautifully.
Danes sem naredila voščilnico z izrezanimi hortenzijami čudovitega seta Hero Arts štampiljk Color Layering Hydrangea odtisnjenega s Soft Purple in Grape Juice blazinico za cvetove in Green Hills za liste. Uporabila sem voščilo iz istega seta in na osnovi dodala nekaj teksture s Soft Sky blazinico preko Deco Pattern stencil šablone skupaj s par metulji iz Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die. Čudovit set štampiljk, ki je preprost za izrez (zraven poglejte kakšen film ali najljubši kanal na YouTube) in zelo lepo zapolnijo voščilnico.
You still have a few days to add your creations to A Blog Named Hero Challenge. Just put a flower on it ;)

Še par dni časa imate, da dodate svoje mojstrovine na A Blog Named Hero izziv. Samo dodajte rožico ;)





Hero Arts and Neat and Tangled haul

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

So... Hi! :) It's been a while... Life happened and I don't have time to vacuume our apartment so I don't really have time to sit down and make a card. But if I do there is no ideas at all... I started a new job on Monday and I have to get ready for those classes and then getting my little girl into day care and being with her as much as I can.... Cards have to wait a bit :) But I have two hauls for you today (that got here a while ago). One from Hero Arts (can't wait to assemble some monsters) and two background dies from Neat and Tangled that look super fun to experiment with :)
Torej... Živjo! :) Pa je minilo že nekaj časa... Življenje se pač odvija precej na hitro in glede na to, da nimam časa niti posesati stanovanja, so voščilnice prav gotovo na dnu seznama. Ko pa imam čas, da se usedem za ustvarjalno mizo, nimam sploh nobenih idej. V ponedeljek sem začela s službo, ki zahteva določene priprave, skrb za varstvo moje male žabice in to, da z njo preživim toliko časa, kot je le mogoče, pa na koncu dneva ne ostane več nič časa. Imam pa za vas danes dva nakupa (ki sta prišla že nekaj časa nazaj). Eden je od Hero Arts (komaj čakam, da se lotim sestavljanja teh malih pošasti) in dve rezalni šabloni za ozadje, ki bosta prav gotovo zelo zabavni, ko se jih končno lotim :) 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 


A Blog Named Hero: Use Your Favourite Hero Arts Product # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

There is a challenge going on at A Blog Named Hero and you have until April 10th to use your favourite Hero Arts Product any share to win a gift certificate to Hero Arts Store.
Na A Blog Named Hero poteka izziv in časa imate do 10ega aprila, da uporabite svoj najljubši Hero Arts izdelek in ga delite, saj imate dve možnosti za osvojitev darilnega bona za Hero Arts spletno trgovino.
 

I used my favourite stamp from Hero Arts called Leafy Vines (again) with Versa Mark and purple Perfect Pearls over a purple and white cardstock. I combined it with a Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die and made two cards switching die cut butterflies and making a few of them "fly". Sentiments are from Come Fly With Me stamp set. If you are wondering about size of my card base - I use mostly A6 card bases that are a bit taller and a bit skinnier from a standard A2 (US letter size) card base. Butterfly die is A2 size but I don't mind the border for this two cards.
Uporabila sem mojo najljubšo Hero Arts štampiljko Leafy Vines (ponovno) z Versa Mark blazinico in vijoličnim Perfect Pearls na belem in vijoličnem kartonu. Vse skupaj sem dvakrat izrezala z Butterfly Confetti Fancy Die in naredila dve voščilnici z zamenjavo metuljev med katerimi jih nekaj tudi "leti". Voščila so iz seta Come Fly With Me. Ta rezalna šablona je narejena za A2 velikost osnove, kar je standardna velikost v Ameriki, jaz pa večinoma uporabljam A6 osnove, ki so malce višje in malenkost ožje od ameriške variante. Na teh dveh voščilnicah me malce roba prav nič ne moti.
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Easter Time # 4

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Today I have three classic designs for Easter cards - eggs hidden in the grass. Add a few flowers and butterflies and we have a winner :)
Danes imam za vas tri klasične velikonočne voščilnice - pirhi skriti v travi. Dodajmo še par rožic in metuljev, pa smo zmagali :)
The last one is a more liberal interpretation when a piece of flower pattern paper represents the grass.

Zadnja voščilnica predstavlja malo bolj svobodno interpretacijo trave, saj jo predstavlja trak vzorčastega papirja z rožicami.
What kind of card design is your favourite classic Easter card? Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Kakšna pa je vaša najljubša klasična velikonočna voščilnica? Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!









I'm adding the second card into Simon Says Anything Goes Wednesday challenge and gallery over at Najlepši par.


Easter Time # 3

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a few more Easter cards to share and I just love these two. I can't wait for Spring to come (sun, green and flowers) and these two make me feel like it's here already :)
Na zalogi imam še par velikonočnih voščilnic in današnji dve sta mi še posebej pri srcu. Komaj čakam, da se pomlad razbohoti tako, kot je treba (sonce, zelena in cvetje) in ti dve voščilnici mi data občutek, da je pomlad že tu :) 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

A Blog Named Hero: Use Your Favourite Hero Arts Product

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

There is a challenge going on at A Blog Named Hero and you have until April 10th to use your favourite Hero Arts Product any share to win a gift certificate to Hero Arts Store.

I used my favourite stamp of all time from Hero Arts called Leafy Vines. I had to get it the moment it came to the stores and I still use it all the time. I also used two of my favourite Shadow inks - Cornflower and Pale Tomato and a die from December 2017 Add-on collection called Filigree Border Fancy Die (and it is super fancy and beautiful).
Uporabila sem mojo najljubšo Hero Arts štampiljko Leafy Vines. Morala sem jo kupiti takoj, ko je prišla v trgovine in še vedno jo uporabljam ves čas. Uporabila sem tudi dve najljubši barvi Shadow blazinic - Cornflower in Pale Tomato, zraven pa še rezalno šablono, ki je del dodatkov pri decembrskem My Monthly Hero kompletu, ki se imenuje Filigree Border Fancy Die (zelo "fensi" in preprosto lepa). 
I pressed Hero Arts Silver ink pad on a piece of cardstock and added some Perfect Pearls powder over the top and then die cut the Filigree Border Fancy Die. When I pilled the border off my die cutting plate all the left over pieces just caught my eye and I couldn't throw them out. I used the negative parts of this die on a second card (except for a few tiny pieces that I lost before I decided to use them up). I added the sentiments from two stamp sets (Come Fly With Me and Color Layering Hydrangea), a few butterflies and some black splatter to finish both cards.
Na kos kartona sem pritisnila Hero Arts Silver blazinico in preko nje nanesla še nekaj Perfect Pearls prahu. Iz tega sem izrezala Filigree Border Fancy Die in ko sem jo odstranila z rezalne plošče, so ostali čudoviti koščki, ki bi sicer romali v smeti, pa sem jih raje uporabila na drugi voščilnici (razen par majhnih, ki sem jih izgubila še preden sem se odločila uporabiti tudi negativen del izreza). Voščili sta iz dveh setov štampiljk (Come Fly With Me in Color Layering Hydrangea), dodala sem še par metuljev in nekaj črnih pack. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Easter Time # 2

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I made a rabbit card two ways today (literally one vertical and one horizontal) with four spring colours and a strip of pattern paper to hold the sentiment. You really can do any colour combination, but this one seemed appropriate for this time of year :)
Danes sem naredila zajčji voščilnici v dveh smereh (dejansko eno obrnjeno horizontalno in drugo vertikalno) s štirimi spomladanskimi barvami in trakom vzorčastega papirja, ki drži voščilo. Dejansko lahko uporabiš vsako barvno kombinacijo, ki se ti zdi primerja, meni je bila všeč ta za velikonočni čas :)

Easter Time #1

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

It's been quiet over here for a week, but that is life and I'm back with my first two cards for Easter. I used Easter egg stamps from two Viva Decor stamp set, but you can use anything you have (even make a mask if you don't have stamps). I stamped them in rainbow colours and added a sentiment on a piece of die cut cardstock. With some added glitter you have a couple of Easer cards.
Nekam tiho je bilo tukaj v zadnjem tednu, ampak danes imam za vas prvi par velikonočnih voščilnic. Uporabila sem štampiljke pirhov iz dveh Viva Decor setov, vi pa lahko uporabite karkoli imate (lahko si naredite tudi masko, če nimate štampiljke). Odtisnila sem jih v odtenkih mavrice in dodala voščilo Najlepšega para na izrezku. Dodala sem še nekaj bleščic in tako zaključila prvi par velikonočnih voščilnic. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 








Voščilnici dodajam v marčevsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

Make Your Own Glitter Paste

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

There is a lot of glitter pastes going around the crafting world and I was wondering if I can make my own. And I did :)

V svetu ustvarjalcev trenutno kroži en kup bleščečih past in tako sem se spraševala, če jo lahko naredim sama. In sem jo :)

I used plain old white school glue (you can probably use any glue that dries clear and not sticky) and mixed some glitter into it on my craft mat. I used two colours of glitter for this experiment - bright pink and a fuchsia pink. The application is not smooth... It feels like you are applying sand over the stencil and it looks milky at first, but when it's dry it looks great.
Uporabila sem navadno belo lepilo (verjetno deluje katerokoli, ki je prozorno in nelepljivo, ko se posuši) in vanj zmešala bleščice. Uporabila sem roza in lila bleščice za ta eksperiment ter "pasto" nanesla preko stencil šablone. Nanos ni najbolj gladek, občutek imaš, kot da bi nanašal mivko, ampak ko se posuši, je zelo lepo. Na začetku je barva malo mlečna, ko pa se posuši, vidiš samo bleščice. 
I think I saw this somewhere online, but I can't remember where (so I'm not trying to sell you this as my own idea), but I haven't tried it jet. I think I will have to do it more often :)
Mislim, da sem to idejo videla nekje na spletu, vendar se ne spomnim točno kje (in vam tako ne prodajam tega kot nekaj, kar sem se spomnila sama), je pa še nisem preizkusila. Očitno bo to potrebno narediti večkrat :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!
