Baby Elephant

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I had to colour in this little elephant from my latest haul and I made a baby boy card with it. Isn't he adorable? :) I used Copic markers to colour him in and a Hero Arts ink and background stamp on the card base.

Morala sem pobarvati tega malega slončka iz zadnje pošiljke in z njim sem naredi voščilnico ob rojstvu malčka. Kaj ni prisrčen? Uporabila sem Copic markerje in za ozadje Hero Arts blazinico in štampiljko. 
There is Calling all Critters Challenge until the end of October at A Blog Named Hero if you want to participate. There is still time.

Na A Blog Named Hero je do konca meseca oktobra izziv z malimi živalcami. Še vedno je čas, da se pridružite. 

Thank you for coming over and hsave a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 






I'm adding this card into Calling all Critters challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.

Cluster of Flowers

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I got some goodies in the mail yesterday and I couldn't resist using them. I used Hero Arts inks with Altenew stamp set and gold embossed a Hero Arts background stamp.

Včeraj sem dobila nekaj novih dobrot in nikakor se nisem mogla upret, da ne jih ne bi uporabila. Uporabila sem Altenew set štampiljk s Hero Arts blazinicami in z zlato embosirala Hero Arts štampiljko za ozadje. 
There is a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero Calling all Critters and you have until end of the month to get inspired by our amazing Design Team.

Finally - my Birthday Haul

Hello everyone! 

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I already said I'm waiting for a package from Simon Says Stamp and it came today :D I can't wait to try these beauties. There was a discount code for Simon Says products and I added the Altenew set because it was on a sale. So beautiful.
Omenila sem že, da pričakujem paket od Simon Says Stamp in prišel je ravno danes :D Komaj čakam, da se lotim ustvarjanja. Imela sem kodo za popust na Simon Says Stamp izdelke, Altenew set pa sem dodala, ker je bil precej znižan in čudovit, kot vse ostale stvari. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Invitation Work Time Wednesday

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I needed to make 20 invitations for my daughter's christening and this is what I came up with. Not the quickest one to replicate but doing steps in stages worked out. Purple background has a glitter embossed MFT background stamp on it so that you can see it behind the die cut part. Oval die cut is raised up with foam tape, everything else is just glued together.
Za krst hčerke sem morala narediti 20 vabil in to je končna varianta. Ni najhitrejše narejeno vabilo, vendar je po posameznih korakih kar hitro nastal končni kupček. Vijolično ozadje ima bleščeč embosiran odtis MFT štampiljke za ozadje, da se malo bleščečega vidi skozi izrezan sprednji del. Oval je dvignjen s penastim lepilom, ostali deli so plosko prilepljeni. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Monday Madness Moving In (part 1)

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I shared the layout of my new craft corner already and this was my moving in process. I ordered a custom made ink pad holder for the space between my two shelves and it fits perfectly. I know some amazing handyman and he made this for me no problem. I love it.
Pokazala sem vam že pohištvo mojega novega ustvarjalnega kotička, tako nekako pa je potekal selitveni proces. Naročila sem stojalo za blazinice pri izjemnem mizarju, ki je po mojih navodilih, meritvah in par slikah naredil perfektno stojalo, ki ga naravnost obožujem. 
And then came unorganized chaos of getting things up and in. 
In potem je nastopil neurejeni kaos prenašanja stvari v zgornje nadstropje. 


And the half organized chaos after that :)
In na pol organiziran kaos malo kasneje :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

One Layer Take Two

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I had to try this one layer thing one more time. And I'm much happier with this one :)
Še enkrat sem morala poskusiti s torkovo voščilnico. I z današnjim izidom sem precej bolj zadovoljna :) 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Work Time Wednesday with 3D Embossing

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I missed some posts last week because my little one got a cold and then I got it also. Stuffed nose with a seven months old baby is no fun :/

Prejšnji teden sem zgrešila par objav, ker je najprej zbolela mala miša, potem pa še jaz. Zamašen nos in sedem mesecev stara žaba pa nista najboljša kombinacija :/

When I was reorganizing my craft space I found my 3D embossing folders and I love the effect they make. I also found a new colour combination for male cards that looks really awesome - Mermaid Lagoon and Tea Die Distress Ink. Love it :)
Ko sem preurejala ustvarjalni kotiček, sem naletela na 3D embosirne srajčke in ponovno sem navdušena nad efektom. In hkrati sem našla novo barvno kombinacijo za moške voščilnice, ki se mi zdi zelo zanimiva - Mermaid Lagoon in Tea Die Distress blazinice.

I used background stamp with ink and water on it for the pink background and I also added some water all over.
Za roza ozadje pa sem na štampiljko za ozadje nanesla barvo in jo izdatno posprejala z vodo. Tudi odtis sem nato še dodatno zmočila, da je vzorec zelo zbledel. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!

Drugo voščilnico dodajam v septembrsko galerijo Najlepšega para. 

A Blog Named Hero One Layer

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I played with some masking today for my one layer card and this is what came out at the end. I'm not completely satisfied with it and I might try to tweak it a bit. I have a few ideas about what went wrong. What do you think?

Danes sem se igrala z maskiranjem za voščilnico z eno plastjo in to je nastalo. Nisem povsem zadovoljna z njo in jo bom verjetno poskusila narediti še enkrat z nekaj popravki. Malo se mi svita o tem, kaj je šlo narobe. Kaj se pa vam zdi? 

You still have time to enter your creations into One Layer challenge over at A Blog Named Hero. Give it a go! Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Še vedno imate čas, da svoje ustvarjanje dodate v izziv A Blog Named Hero, kjer je pogoj ena plast. Poskusite. Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


Haul Christmas in July

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Rayher had a Christmas in July sale and I had to get some new goodies for the 25 Days of Joy series. I got some dies, stamps and decorations that were super inexpensive.

Rayher je imel julija razprodajo božičnih stvari in se nisem mogla upret. Naročila sem nekaj rezalnih šablon, štampiljk in dekorativnih malenkosti, da bo lažje ustvarjati za 25 dni veselja. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

First Haul After a Long Time

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Since I was not making any cards for the first part of this year I have not ordered anything but then came July (my birthday month) and I placed an order at Simon Says Stamp that is not here yet (we are working on getting that sorted) but this order from Amazon is. I noticed that my die storage was getting too small and I needed a few other things from Amazon so I added these two (not-so-exciting) items to my cart. Now I can reorganize my die collection. 
Glede na to, da v prvem delu leta nisem delala voščilnic, tudi naročala nisem novih stvari, potem pa se je prikradel julij, mesec mojega rojstnega dne. Da se malo pocrkljam, sem naročila kar nekaj stvari pri Simon Says Samp, ampak za enkrat še niso prišle do mene (že rešujemo težavo), medtem pa je prišel že paketek, ki sem ga naročila na Amazonu. Naročala sem par drugih stvari, ko sem ugotovila, da potrebujem novo mapico za rezalne šablone, ker prva poka po šivih, ter nova rezila, kar sem veselo dodala v košarico. Sedaj pa lahko reorganiziram svoje rezalne šablone. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Sweet dreams

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a welcome baby girl card for you today using my favourite background stamp from Hero Arts. This is a digital stamp from this blog and it just makes me want to take a nap :)


Za danes sem pripravila voščilnico ob rojstvu male punčke z mojo najljubšo Hero Arts štampiljko za ozadje. Muca je digitalna štampiljka in sem jo našla na tem blogu. Bi še kdo malo zadremal z njo? :)

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


I'm (hopefully) back!

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

It's been a long time since I made any kind of regular card making and/or blogging. I have an almost seven months old sweetie for an excuse. I hope you forgive me :) I have missed my blog and card making so I hope I can get into it again. I think if I write it down and make a virtual commitment I can kick my butt and actually do it :) I will try to post on my usual Monday, Wednesday and Friday schedule, but I can't promise anything. I do have a hew hauls and my craft space to share so I will try to post something even if I don't have a card to share.

Že zelo dolgo časa na tem blogu ni bilo kakšnih konkretnih rednih objav. Moj izgovor je skoraj sedem mesecev stara žabica. Upam, da mi je oproščeno :) Pogrešala sem pisanje in izdelovanje voščilnic, tako da upam, da bi to ponovno lahko uvedla. Če bom to dejansko napisala in objavila, se morda uspem tudi zbrcat v "tazadno" in se držati tega. Poskušala bom ohraniti moj običajni urnik ponedeljek, sreda in petek, ampak nič ne obljubim.  Z vami moram deliti še nekaj nakupov in nov ustvarjalni kotiček, tako da imam nekaj materiala tudi, če ne bom imela voščilnice, ki bi jo želela objaviti. 

I plan on giving this blog a bit of a facelift and I do plan on having my 25 Days Of Joy series again this year. Fingers crossed I can do it :)

V planu imam malo grafično preurediti blog in mišljeno je, da ponovno izvedem 25 Dni Veselja. Držimo pesti, da mi uspe :) 

Thank you for sticking with me and I hope I see you again over here soon. Have a great day!

Hvala, da vztrajate z mano in upam, da se kmalu spet beremo. Želim vam super dan!

Emboss Resist Backgrounds

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I made two background using Hero Arts stamps and some Distress Ink and I made four cards today using those two up :) I added some sentiments, die cuts and thread.
Naredila sem dva ozadja s Hero Arts štampiljkami, danes pa sem ju uporabila za štiri voščilnice. Dodala sem voščila, nekaj izrezkov in vrvice. 
There is Embossing challenge going on at A Blog Named Hero so I hope you got inspired to participate. You still have time ;)
Na A Blog Named Hero do konca meseca poteka izziv z embosingom, tako da imate še vedno čas in upam, da sem vam pomagala s kakšno idejo ;)

Sparkly Butterfly

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Today I used floral stamp from Wplus9 for the background and there is a Hero Arts butterfly as the focal point. I used Shadow Ink and ink blending tool to colour him in and I added a whole lot of Stickles all over the place.
Danes sem uporabila cvetlično štampiljko Wplus9 za ozadje, v ospredju pa je Hero Arts metulj. Uporabila sem Shadow blazinice in ga pobarvala s pomočjo blazinic za senčenje. Na koncu sem dodala en kup Stickles bleščic. 

I love how the colours on the butterfly blend and how sparkly it is. You still have some time to participate in this month's challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.
Res mi je všeč kako se barve na metulju prelivajo med seboj, predvsem pa vse bleščeče pikice. Še vedno imate čas, da sodelujete v mesečnem izzivu na A Blog Named Hero

I'm entering this card into A Blog Named Hero Florals Challenge and gallery over at Najlepši par.

Florals with A Blog Named Hero

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm channelling my inner Michelle Lupton today with these two floral cards. I used Hero Arts Red Royal + Raspberry Jam and Soft Sky + Tide Pool inks and some Hero arts florals to make birthday cards.
Danes sem navdih našla pri Michelle Lupton in naredila dve rojstnodnevni voščilnici. Uporabila sem Hero Arts Red Royal + Raspberry Jam in Soft Sky + Tide Pool blazinici. Dodala sem nekaj Hero Arts rožic in par voščil. 
There is a Floral Challenge going on at A Blog Named Hero this month. Take a look at what our DT made and get inspired.
Na A Blog Named Hero je ta mesec cvetlični izziv, zato si poglejte primere ustvarjalne ekipe in pustite, da vas navdihnejo.

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

Turning Two

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a children's birthday card idea for you today that you can use over and over again. I stamped the number and masked it and then used some circle stamps from a Simon says Stamp stamp set with Hero Arts ink and added a die cut sentiment. 
Danes imam za vas idejo za otroško voščilnico, ki jo lahko replicirate vedno znova ampak vsakič na drugačen način. Uporabila sem številko, ki sem jo nato maskirala, okrogle štampiljke iz seta Simon Says Stamp in Hero Arts blazinice. Dodala sem tudi izrezano voščilo Najlepšega para.

You can use a different number, different colour scheme and you can even add the child's name at the bottom if you want to. It's totally up to you and things that the recipient likes. 
Uporabite lahko različne številke, drugačno barvno kombinacijo, na dnu pa lahko odtisnete tudi ime otroka, ki bo voščilnico prejel. Končen izgled je odvisen od vas in stvari, ki jih ima prejemnik rad. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 






Voščilnico dodajam v majsko galerijo Najlepšega para.

It's the wedding season

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

Wedding season is here and that means we need some congratulation cards. I love to play with floral stamps and use Hero Arts inks for that. This Altenew layering stamp set is perfect for some Hero Arts colours. 
Ponovno je tukaj sezona porok, kar pomeni, da bomo potrebovali kakšno voščilnico za takšno priložnost. Zelo rada se igram s štampiljkami v rožastih motivih in jih uporabim s Hero Arts blazinicami. Ta Altenew set z različnimi plastmi je perfekten v Hero Arts barvah. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


His and Hers

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I have a His and a Hers card today for you. Hers is made with Altenew flower stamps and His is made using some pattern paper and a few vintage masculine stamps over that. Hero Arts ink is perfect for both designs.
Danes imam za vas voščilnico zanjo in zanj. Zanjo sem uporabila Altenew štampiljke z motivom rož, zanj pa sem preko vzorčastega papirja odtisnila še nekaj vintage štampiljk. Hero Arts blazinice so perfektne za obe varianti. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 


Roses are red...

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

There are no roses on my card today, but I played with Hero Arts inks in pink and red tones. Love how it turned out :)
Na moji voščilnici danes ni vrtnice, sem se pa poigrala s Hero Arts roza in rdečimi blazinicami. Zelo mi je všeč efekt prelivanja, ki je nastal :)

There is Anything Goes Challenge up this month at A Blog Named Hero. I hope I see you there ;)

Na A Blog Named Hero je ta mesec izziv Karkoli, tako da upam, da vas vidim tam ;)

Have a great day!

Želim vam super dan!
