Birthday Squares



Trenutno imam za dokončati naročilo nekaj voščilnic za 50. rojstni dan in nekaj za poroko. Še posebej pri takih naročilih, je inspiracija vedno dobrodošla. Tokrat sem skušala ustvariti moško voščilnico. Te so še posebej zahtevne. Včasih me kakšne ustvarjalke oziroma njihove stvaritve neverjetno navdahnejo. Tako sem po inspiraciji nadarjene Pamele in njene objave na blogu "Miao - a design blog" ustvarila tudi ozadje za tole voščilnico. Barvna inspiracija je s tokratnega "ColourQ Challengea #152", postavitev pa s tokratnih "Retrosketches #26".

I am finishing an order of a few cards for a 50th birthday and a few ones for the wedding day. Specially with such orders any inspiration is more than welcome. This time I tried to finish a male birthday card, which are not easy to make at all. Somethimes some of the crafters and their work inspire me amazingly. So when I visited Pamela's blog over at "Miao - a design blog" and saw her amazingly stunning creation I was inspired to create this beautiful background for my card. The color inspiration comes from this week's "ColourQ Challenge #152" and the sketch from this week's "Retrosketches #26".


















Polepila sem robove in vmesne linije in kvadratke pobarvala z distress črnili. Odtsranila sem trak, prerezala po dolžini na dva dela, vsakega posebej pritrdila na kraft karton in nato s tanko vmesno linijo na osnovo voščilnice. Izrezala sem poseben oval s "Spellbinders Labels Eighteen", vendar ne do roba, tako da sem dobila "mini voščilnico". Slednji sem robove osenčila z distress črnilom in jih zluknjala. Na zunanjost sem dodala številko 50, ki sem jo prekrila z washi trakom. V notranjost pa "Happy Birthday". Za zalepit mini voščilnico sem dodala trak na ježka, na zunanjosti pa gumbek in okrasni trak z drobnimi ptički, ki sem ga dodala tudi v notranjost voščilnice.

I taped the edges and the lines between the squares and then colored them with distress inks. I removed the tape, cut the cardstock in two pieces, adhered them to kraft cardstock and then both of them, with a small line between them on the base of the card. I cut out the specialy shaped oval with "Spellbinders Labels Eighteen", but didn't cut it right to the edge, so that I got another "small card". I distressed and pierced the edges. On the front I made a number 50 which I covered with washi tape and in the inside circle with a sentiment "Happy Birthday". I added a special velcro adhesive and a button on the front. I also added some ribbon with little birdies to open the "mini card", which I repeated in the inside of the card.

Uživajte v vikendu!

Enjoy the wekeend!

Gift Collection Eau De Cologne De France - Roses



En lep pozdravček vsem po nekoliko daljšem času. :) Pri nas sije sonček, otroci prekipevajo od energije in kmalu se začenja novo leto v vrtcu, tokrat tudi za mlajšo hčerko. Obetajo se nam kar pestri dnevi in izkoriščanje zadnjih dopustniških dni. Kljub temu pa skušam najti čas za svoje delovne obveznosti, sem in tja pa se prikrade tudi kakšna prosta urica za ustvarjanje "kar tako". V eni od takih sem ustvarila tudi tale darilni kompletek s parfumčkom in voščilnico, inspiracija pa je bil tokratni "JustRite Friday Challenge #079: Opposites Attract" in "Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #47". Za nasprotni barvi v barvnem kolesu sem uporabila roza in zeleno, dodala pa sem še rumeno-oranžno, ki je v barvnem krogu v tretjem kraku izbranega barvnega trikotnika. Rada ustvarjam za JustRite izzive, velikokrat iz njihove inspiracije nastanejo nove ideje, zadnje čase pa mi navadno zmanjka časa, da bi svoje izdelke tudi objavila. Zato sem si tokrat obljubila, da temu ne bo tako. Spodaj je tako moj izdelek, ki je nastal na podlagi tokratne inspiracije:

One beautiful hello to all of you after a little bit longer time. :) We have a lot of sunshine, my kids are bursting with energy and soon we are starting a new year in our kindergarten. This year our youngest little princess will be joining in the fun too. So... we have some interesting days ahead and some of last minute summer fun to do. Still I am trying to squeeze in some time for crafting to do fullfil my obligations and also some crafting moments "just for fun". And so I managed to create this gift assemble with a card and a perfume, for which the inspiration was this week's "JustRite Friday Challenge #079: Opposites Attract" and the "Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #47". For the opposite colors in the color wheel I used hot pink and green and I also added some yellow-orange which is in the third corner of a color triangle in the color wheel. I love to create for JustRite challenges, they are my big inspiration but unfortunately lately I ran out of time to publish my creations. So I have a few still stuck in my drawer, maybe they will get their second chance. ;) But this time I promised to myself not to ran out of time, so here is my "piece of art" for this week's challenge:


















Tale post je poln fotografija... :) Papirji so "First Edition Papers - Boho Chic", "Bo Bunny" in "K&Company - Tim Coffey Cottage Garden". Štampiljke so "JustRite Cling - Shabby Chic Labels Four". Rožice so od "Prime". Uporabila pa sem še nekaj čipkastega traku, nekaj perl in nekaj biserčkov, da sem malo popestrila izdelek. Šivi so ročno šivani... žal še vedno nimam svojega šivalnega stroja. :(

Picture heavy post this time... :) Papers are from "First Edition Papers - Boho Chic", "Bo Bunny" and "K&Company - Tim Coffey Cottage Garden". Stamps are "JustRite Cling - Shabby Chic Labels Four". Flowers are from "Prima". I used some lace and some perls and gemstones to add some bling. And those stitches are handstitched... I unfortunately still don't own a sewing machine. :(

Mislim, da je to to za danes. Se vidimo do naslednjič, do takrat pa čudovite zadnje avgustovske dni in obilo božjega blagoslova.

I think this is it for today. See you next time, till then I wish you gorgeous last days of summer august and a lot of blessings.

Beautiful Birthday with Butterfly Duo



Dobro jutro vsem z eno kratko objavico za danes. Preden družinica vstane bi rada delila voščilnici, ki sem ju izdelala za tokratni izziv na blogu "Embellishmagazine: Dry embossing color trends challenge", za inspiracijo pa mi je bila tudi skica na tokratnem izzivu na blogu "Hero Arts: Clean and Simple stamping and a sketch challenge". Tole pa je moj izdelek:

Good morning to all with a short post for today. Before the kids are up I wanted to share a card I made for this week's challenge over at "Embellishmagazine: Dry embossing color trends Challenge", for the inspiration I used also a sketch on this month's "Hero Arts: Clean and Simple stamping and a sketch challenge". And this are my cards:

















Ozadje sem posprejala z mini misterjem in distress inki. Izrezala sem vrhnjo plast belega kartona, jo embosirala z embosirno srajčko z motivom lesa, jo razrezala v dva neenakomerna dela in pritrdila s 3D blazinicami na ozadje. Odtisnila sem metulja s štampiljko "Hero Arts" in ga pobarvala z akvarelnimi svinčniki in waterbrushem. Dodala sem nekaj perl in bleščice na trup metulja ter ga pritrdila po sredini s krilci navzgor. Dodala sem verz, ki je brezplačna digitalna štampiljka - ne spomnim se žal od kje.

I sprayed a background with my mini mister and distress inks. I cut out a layer of white cardstock, embossed it with a woodgraing embossing plate, cut it into two parts and ahered it to a background layer with 3D foam tapes. I stamped the butterfly from "Hero Arts" and colored it with aquarel pencils and waterbrush. I added some perls and some glitter onto the body of a butterfly. I added a sentiment, which is a freebie digital stamp - I don't recall from where did I get it.

Naj bo vaš dan uspešen kot se le da. Uživajte v dnevu!

May your day be blessed abundantly! Have fun!
