RIC #35 and a Trendy card with a Bird Cage



Pozdravček vsem. Je pri vas tudi kaj sončka? Jaz sem ga prav vesela, letos je bilo slabega vremena že toliko, da je prav čudovito videti s sončkom obsijano naravo. S sončkom obsijana je tudi moja današnja voščilnica. Nastala je po inspiraciji na blogu Runway Inspired Challenge #35, ki jo tokrat predstavlja spodnja fotografija z modnih brvi:

Hi bloging friends. :) I hope sun is shining at your place too. It is nice to have it around after a looooong period of bad weather around here. And I also have a bit sunny card to share with you today. The inspiration comes from Runway Inspired Challenge #35, which is all about this photo from a fashion show:



Tole pa je moja kreacija:

And this is my today's creation:



Navadno ne pišem dolgih postopkov, kako je voščilnica nastala. Najverjetneje zgolj zaradi kroničnega pomanjkanja časa. A ta mi je zanimiva in zato sem se tokrat odločila, da vir inspiracije miselno povežem s svojim izdelkom. Nič ne bom huda, če ta del preskočite. :)

I usually don't write long posts about a making process of the card. Probably due to a serious lack of time. But this time I decided to do so and link together the inspiration photo and my card. You can skip this part if you don't love long posts. :)

Ozadje za voščilnico sem črpala iz obleke dame na sliki, ki ima črtast vzorec. Iz črnega potiskanega papirja sem izrezala trakove in jih pritrdila na belo ozadje. Ob robu sem dodala bel papir, ki sem ga embosirala s pikčasto srajčko, pikice pa nato pobarvala s črno - tako sem zajela vzorec, ki je na torbici modela. Ozadje je rumeno, da pride bolj do izraza, s tem pa sem skušala ujeti rumen model v ozadju slike. Tudi ptička sta dva, rumen in roza, kot sta na sliki dva modela, zgornji del kletke pa sem opremila z roza trakom z belimi pikami - inspiracija rutke na modelu na sliki. Roza ptiček ima rdeč biserček za uček, kot ima model rdeče žabe. Meni je bilo zanimivo. :) Upam, da tudi vam. :)

The background is the same as the model on the picture has on her dress - white and black stripes. I cut out stripes from a black patterned paper and attached them to a white base of the card. Along the edges I added a white paper that I embossed with dots and colored them black - the pattern that the model has on her purse. The background is yellow - I tried to capture the yellow model from the background. The birds are also two, pink and yellow to match the two modls on the picture. I added a small red rhinestone for the eye of the pink bird to match the red socks of the model. On the top of the cage there is a pink ribbon with white dots - I tried to capture the scarf that model wears around her neck. It was fun doing it and fun describing it. I hope you enjoyed it too! :)

Have fun and see you soon! Hugs, Aleksandra

The Play Date Cafe and Color Splash Time



Zadnje dni nastaja kar nekaj novih izdelkov, saj se intenzivno pripravljam na prodajno-razstavne sejme v mesecu maju. Tokrat je nastala voščilnica po foto in barvni shemi izziva na blogu The Play Date Cafe.

I am making quite some new cards lately, due to intensive preparation to sales-exhibition craft fairs in may. This time I made a card for this weeks The Play Date Cafe challenge.



Malo sem sem poigrala z bleščicami. Že celo večnost jih imam na polički a so me zamikale šele potem, ko sem videla čudovite pobleščičene izdelke nadarjene Erum - E.T. Ustavite se še na njenem blogu Vibgyor krafts in ji pustite kakšno lepo sporočilce. Gotovo ga bo vesela.

I played a little with my glitter. I have loads of it in my crafting supplies but haven't felt the desire to use them until I saw a gorgeous use of it by Erum - E.T. She does an amazing job. Stop by her blog Vibgyor krafts and leave her some love.

Uživajte v dnevu, jaz pa se vrnem še s kakšno novostjo v tem dnevu.

Have an amazing day! I'll be back with some more creations later on.

Hugs, Aleksandra

CASE Study #139 and "Sparkly Butterflies"



Še ena objavica za danes... tokrat za izziv CASE Study Challenge #139. Uf dolgo je že kar sem nazadnje sodelovala v tem izzivu. Nasploh je bilo zadnje čase malo priložnosti za raznovrstne izzive, a sem in tja skušam stlačiti kakšnega vmes... tokrat je ideja takoj padla in seveda sem si vzela čas, da izdelam voščilnico, preden sem se potopila v sanje.

Another post for today... this time for the CASE Study Challenge #139. Oh, It's been a looong loong (to long) time since I last participated in CASE Study challenge in fact there wasn't much time lately to participate in any of the challenges. But this time I got the idea right away and I managed to make a card before going to bed yesterday.





Upam da ste lepo preživeli prvomajske praznike in ste pripravljeni na nove izzive. Čudovit teden želim vsem!

Hope you spend your holidays nicely and you are all ready and set up for the new life's challenges. :) I wish to all of you a great week ahead!

Hugs, Aleksandra

Flourishes Beautiful World Tour













It is allready may - I can't believe how time flies, soon we will again be making christmas cards :D lool - but anyway... today it is time for yet another inspiring Flourishes Beautiful World Tour. Once again, it’s time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to travel the world! I invite you to travel with us, do a little globetrotting and leave us a comment and you could WIN A FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!! The catch is, you don't know which country is going to be this month's Vacation Spot (chosen blog), so leave a comment on each of the team's blogs by May 31st for your chance to win!!!

If you came from Kathy's blog then you have arrived at the right destination. If not, you can start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way!

Our hostess this month is Kathy and the challenge this time is "A Picture says A thousand words". I was thinking about my most cherished moments in life that I could and would like to put into a card and a wedding kept crossing my mind. And the gorgeous stamp set "Hearts&Flowers" was just perfect for it. I used an image of a heart with roses. It reminds me of my wedding bouquet that was mainly made out of peach an champagne roses. I've also used some butterflies from stamp set "Gerber Daises" and white embossed it on a vellum. I included some Swarrowski rhinestones that I've also used on our wedding stationery. And here is my card:





And here is a picture of my bouquet and another one from us. This was only three years ago, we allready had our Kaja and Sara was on her way. I was 6 months pregnant and a month later Sara was born almost two monts too early.





Thanks for your visit! I hope you enjoyed it here in Slovenia, your next stop on the Flourishes tour around the Globe is Iwona and her dreamy Australia...


Enjoy the rest of the tour! Hugs, Aleksandra
