Antelope Hello

Hello, hello my crafty friends!!!

Today another not squarish card :) and this time card with animal.

For this little project I choose July's freebie from Patricia Alvarez from Kinda Cute Cards called Antelope Hello.

Card dimensions: 17x11 cm.
I coloured image with pencils and then cut it out. I decided to use 2 floral papers and 2 pieces of ribbon for this project.

I added bit of glitter glue on antelopes horns.

Also had some fun when preparing sentiment for it. I used floral Fiskars puncher on one corner, added some glitter glue on butterflies wings and few green gems in top left corner for extra sparkle.

What do you think about this card?

Mermaid and step panel card

Hi crafty friends!

Have to say I'm very rarely making other cards then square... Today's card is my first attempt with step panel fold.

For this card I used patterned papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine free gift and beautiful mermaid called Liliana created by Conie Fong

Easy tutorial for this kind of card I found in issue 168 of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.
I need to say I had fun with working on this card, to have all correct panels decorated and all properly stick together.

Glitter glue is my latest crazy addiction as you all can see :)

I wanted my card to be decorated with things which are screaming: SUMMERTIME!  - hope my embellishments choice is at least good :).

Little piece of blue sea glass and shell charm :) Plus few gems near sentiment.

I like how my card turned out. What do you think?

Heartfelt Wishes

Hello my crafty friends!!!

Today little card with cute image from Everyday in Moonbeam Meadow stamp set (Crafter's Companion) - free gift from Quick Cards Made Easy (one of issues from 2015).

I asked my son which papers he would like on this card and above you can see result of these consultations :)

For layering I used purple pearl cardstock and 2 patterned papers: one with purple and ochre accents and other with creamy turquoise floral patterns.

Also decided to add some sparkling :) Bit of cream/gold twine and die-cut butterfly with touch of glitter glue.

A Birdie Note and Geordie :)

Hello crafty friends!!!

I'm not sure how many of you knows where I'm actually living... So..

Since almost 13 years I'm living in Geordieland :) For your information: Northeast of England, not too far from Newcastle upon Tyne, precisely in beautiful Northumberland county.

When people hear Geordies talking, they're often making huge mistake to call chaps from here: Scottish or Irish. Geordies are proud and friendly people and Geordie is a very interesting dialect, you can read about it a lot on internet.

My friend from London was happy when told him, I'm coming to England, but was petrified when found out I'm going to Newcastle... He said: They're not speak English!!! 

Honestly I was surprised, how he could say: English people who are not speak English??? My shock came when I landed here :) But I'm used to of it now and I'm happy to call this place my home. I have lots of friends here and this card I made for them as kinda: Thank Yee Aal! card.

For this project I used image called: A Birdie Note from Art by Barb - if you are interested in colouring challenges with her beautiful images, check: https://www.facebook.com/groups/artbybarb/.

I decided to make my card: green, clean and simple with only one patterned paper, then I put sentiment together with my Trodat Printy :)

For all who wants to know what this sentiment means, here's translation:
'Singing for you Darling!'

 Want to know more Geordie words? 

Check: http://www.englandsnortheast.co.uk/GeordieDictionary.html, on this page you can also find lots of interesting information about Northeast of England, history, festivals, towns and cities, places to visit etc.

That's all for today!!!

Ahoy mate!

Hiya crafty friends!!!

Today - pirate card with cute image from LOTV called: Walk the plank.

I choose 3 patterned papers for this project. All papers I layered on navy blue cardstock. Also coloured image I layered on the same cardstock.

I was thinking hard what kind of sentiment to use on it and then one thought struck me: 'I have Trodat Printy, why not use it to make my own sentiment?'

And.. that's what I did :) Made my own sentiment :)

What do you think about my new card? Like it?

Birthday dragon 😊

Hello my crafty friends!!!

Today little DT card with cute image created by Conie Fong called: Tori the Dragon - Up.

I decided to make this project in shades of green with just few splashes of other colours.

I wanted to give my card some extra texture, so I used some digital papers along with handmade papers (with lots of fibers), paper doily to soften even more its look and piece of ribbon.

Both image and sentiment I distressed with scissors and shaded with pencils. 

Hope you like this card.

Till next post!
