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!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 




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!

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.
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 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!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam čudovit dan! 



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!

Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I'm super excited to be joining the Facebook Inspiration Team for A Blog Named Hero and be a part of this amazing team for at least a few more months :) I took inspiration for today's card from my last year's card from the month of July. This is one of my favourites from 2017 and I had to remake it for this introduction post.

Resnično sem navdušena, da se ponovno pridružujem Facebook ekipi A Blog Named Hero - novega uradnega bloga z izzivi Hero Arts in ustvarjam z ramo ob rami nove izjemne ustvarjalne ekipe vsaj še nekaj mesecev. Današnjo voščilnico je navdihnila ena mojih najljubših voščilnic lanskega leta iz meseca julija

I used the same butterfly stamp from Hero Arts (still one of my favourite butterfly stamps ever, unfortunately not available any more) but I used feather stamp from February My Monthly Hero Add-On stamp set Come Fly With Me and Soft Sky Shadow ink. I stamped the Butterfly with Versa Mark and sprinkled Black Sparkle embossing powder over it and I used the same for the sentiment. Since it's the beginning of a new A Blog Named Hero this sentiment really couldn't be more perfect. Just Let your dreams take flight :)

Uporabila sem isto štampiljko metulja (še vedno ena mojih najljubših štampiljk metulja sploh, na žalost pa ni več na voljo), za ozadje pa sem uporabila pero iz add-on izdelkov, del februarskega My Monthly Hero paketa, ki se imenuje  Come Fly With Me in ga odtisnila s Soft Sky Shadow blazinico. Metulja in voščilo sem embosirala z novim Black Sparkle embosirnim prahom, voščilo - Pusti svojim sanjam, da poletijo - pa je res na mestu za začetek novega A Blog Named Hero potovanja :)

Thank you for joining me today and I wish you a great day!

Hvala, da ste se mi danes pridružili in želim vam čudovit dan! 






Balloons from a Sweet Pup

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I had to combine my last two hauls from Simon Says Stamp and Katzelkraft and make card for today. I made that puppy hold balloons for someone's birthday. Love those Sunny Studio Stamps balloons but there is no outline for the balloon and it didn't look finished. I took a black marker and outlined them myself. It's not perfect, but the dog stamp is kind of sketchy and I don't mind it at all.
Na današnji voščilnici sem morala združiti novosti zadnjih 14 dni in tako sem uporabila štampiljke balonov iz Simon Says Stamp in kuža od Katzelkraft. Kuža dejansko drži šop balonov za rojstni dan nekoga. Sunny Studio Stamps baloni so resnično čudoviti, v setu pa ni obrisa balonov in tako voščilnico ni bila povsem zaključena, dokler nisem kar sama obrisala balonov s črnim markerjem, kar ni popolno, ampak je tudi kuža precej risarski, tako da me nepravilnosti sploh ne motijo. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 









Voščilnico dodajam v galerijo Najlepšega para za mesec marec.

Simon Says Stamp Anniversary Sale Haul

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I was complaining in my last Simon Says Stamp order that my package got lost for quite a few months, so I was super shocked that this order got to me in record time - 2 weeks. I got some new things from Hero Arts and a few things I got on my wish list for some time. I'm going to try some new watercolour paintbrushes (other crafters made me do it!) and I can't wait to stamp these balloon stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps :)
Za zadnje naročilo pri Simon Says Stamps sem se pritoževala, da se je moj paket izgubil za par mesecev, zato sem bila še toliko bolj presenečena, da je to naročilo potrebovalo do mene samo dva tedna. Naročila sem nekaj novejših stvari od Hero Arts in nekaj stvari, ki so bile že dlje časa na listi želja. Naročila sem par čopičev za akvarel (ostali ustvarjalci so me prisilili!) in komaj čakam, da odtisnem balone od Sunny Studio Stamps :) 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hearts Over Hearts

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni!

I have another wedding card for you today using heart full of hearts stamp from Mavelu that you saw in my Valentine's cards already. This idea of gold embossing over red stamp popped into my head the moment I saw this stamp set but I didn't have time to make it. It turned out even better that it looked in my head :) Love that!
Danes sem uspela uresničiti idejo poročne voščilnice, ki mi je padla na pamet v trenutku, ko sem zagledala ta set - zlat embos preko rdečega odtisa. Ta set sem že uporabila na voščilnicah za Valentinovo, saj je ta štampiljka srce polnega srce res idealna za ljubezenske voščilnice. Končni izdelek pa je dejansko še boljši, kot je bila skica v moji glavi.

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Katzelkraft Haul

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I found this stamp company (Katzelkraft) from Lindsay on her The Frugal Crafter blog and loved the ripped paper stamp. And then I found out it's a French company and I had to get some things :) I got the Cats, Dogs, Monsters, Castles, Doors and Ripped Paper along with a few Infusion Dye watercolour powders. The stamps are a whole sheet of red rubber with no cling foam.
Katzelkraft štampiljke sem prvič videla na The Frugal Crafter blogu, kjer jih je uporabila Lindsey in takoj mi je v oči padla štampiljka raztrganega papirja. Potem pa sem ugotovila, da je to francosko podjetje in med ponudbo sem v trenutku našla cel seznam čudovitih ilustracij. Naročila sem komplet z mačkami, psi, pošastkami, gradovi, vrati in raztrganim papirjem, zraven pa še nekaj odtenkom Infusion Dye akvarelov v prahu. Štampiljke so en kos rdeče gume brez pene.

Katzelkraft stamps have a very specific style of illustrations. Very whimsy and super fun (especially the animals). They ship worldwide and I'm sure you can find something that you like.
Katzelkraft ilustracije so zelo specifične, pravljične in zabavne (sploh živali). Dostavljajo kamorkoli po svetu in prepričana sem, da med njihovimi izdelki najdete nekaj zase. 

Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan! 














 *This is not a sponsored post. I bought everything with my own money and I just wanted to share something new and fun with you.
Ta objava ni sponzorirana. Vse izdelke sem kupila s svojim denarjem in sem z vami želela deliti informacijo, saj se mi zdijo zabavne in malo manj poznane štampiljke.*

Sweet Wishes

Hello everyone!

Lepo pozdravljeni! 

I made a sweet birthday card today using Wplus9 Triangles stamp for the background with three different colours, Papermania cupcakes and Najlepši par sentiment dies. I also added some vellum. I tend to forget about it and it's a great way to soften the background if you don't want to take away from your focal point.
Danes sem naredila sladko rojstnodnevno voščilnico z Wplus9 trikotniki in tremi barvami za ozadje, Papermania torticami in voščilom Najlepšega para. Dodala sem tudi trak paus papirja, na katerega kar malo pozabim, ampak zelo lepo zmehča ozadje, da ne odvrne od osrednjega motiva. 
Thank you for coming over and have a great day!

Hvala za obisk in želim vam super dan!
