Happy birthday Marie :)

Hello everybody! I'm here today because I want to share with you a card that I made for a special lady - Marie. She's the owner of The Greeting Farm. The DT ladies prepared a celebration for her and there are also some guest participants. And I'm one of them. Yay! :D I feel honoured to be invited to participate in this event, because I really like TGF images and always have fun using them on my creations. 

So, I'd like to shout a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Marie. :D And here are some (cup)cakes to help you celebrate. ;)

I wanted to make this card cute and girls so I used all the girliest things - flowers, butterflies, pearls and pink. Oh, and glitter too. Unfortunately it's hard to see in the picture, but I used glitter glue on parts of Anya's dress, cupcakes and hair accessories as well as on the butterfly.

On this card I used papers from Authentique, ribbons from Crafty ribbons and embellishments from my stash. Dies used are from Spellbinders, LLLC and Prickley pear.

Well, that's all from me today. I hope you'll hop to The Greeting Farm blog and wish Marie happy birthday. :)

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx

Happy Wednesday!

Hello there my crafty friends! How are you all doing? Good, I hope. We were supposed to get lots of rain today (and even some snow), but so far the weather has been fine (at least in my town).

Today I'd like to show you a card I made for a friend of mine. She saw the previous card I made with the Whimsy Ballerina  girl stamp and she asked me if I cound make another card with this image for her to give it to her sister (she's a ballet teacher). Of course I said I could and here is what I came up with.

I love soft pastel colours and that's why I used them on this card. All of the papers and embellishments came from my stash. I coloured the image with Promarkers and I added some glitters on parts of ballerina's dress.

I hope my friend's sister will like this card when she receives it. I sure had fun making it. :)

Have a wondertul day!
Hugs! xx

Spring is on the way

Hey hey! :) How are you? I'm enjoying the beautiful sunny day. We're supposed to get rain again tomorrow so I'm trying to get the best of this lovely day. It looks like spring is finally on its way. I've already seen some spring flowers when I went for a walk the other day and temperatures are getting higher. And days are finally getting longer too. It's so great that it's not dark at 4 or 5 pm already.

Today I would like to show you a card that was inspired by the lovely sunny days and spring itself. So as you can imagine, you will see lots of flowers and butterflies. He he. ;)

I've decided to use some bright flowery papers from my stash for this card. And the image is from TGF. I did the colouring with Promarkers and I added some glitters on the flowers and parts of Dahlia's dress.

Doily, pearls, crystals, flowers and checkered ribbon came from my stash. I used white gel pen to make dots on butterfly border die cut. I embossed the white oval behind Anya with Cart-us embossing folder.

I hope the weather is nice where you live and that you are having a wonderful day!

A card in earth tones

Hello there! :) I hope you've been enjoying your week so far. Just a couple of days more and the weekend will be here. Do you have any plans? I think I will be pretty busy with some work stuff, but if I have some free time and if the weather is nice, I hope to go on a short trip somewhere. We'll see. 

Today I want to show you another card that I made.

I coloured the adorable Brittany stamp from Art by MiRan collection that is available and Whimsy stamps store. Isn't she cute?

I coloured her with Promarkers and I added some glitter glue on her flower. I added some glitter glue on the petals of the paper flowers, but it's a bit hard to see in the picture.

The Butterfly border die is from Whimsy too. Lace and ribbon came from Crafty ribbons and all the other embellishments and papers came from my stash.

So much from me today. Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx

Pinky pink

Hey hey! How are you doing? Me and my sweetie bought Wii today. We don't really exercise much (especially not me), so I hope this will get us "exercising" at least a little bit. Ok, ok, I know this is still FAR from the real exercise, but I think this is still better than just sitting behind the computer the whole afternoon. Do you have Wii or have you ever played it? If yes, do (did) you like it?

Today I'd like to show you a card that I just made.

I don't think it gets much girlier that this, does it? ;) So much pink, butterflies, flowers and bling. All of my favourite things. He he.

The image is from The greeting farm and I coloured it with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. I also added some glitter glue to parts of Anya's dress. The ribbons are all from Crafty ribbons and the other embellishments came from my stash. Papers are from my stash as well. I used dies from Joy crafts, Spellbinders and Whimsy stamps.

Before I go I'd also like totell you about the new "Handmade ribbons" that are available at Crafty ribbons store.

They are awesome and you can find them here,

So much from me today. Have a wonderful week!
Hugs! xx

First Christmas card of 2015

Hey, hey! How are you? I hope you've been enjoying your weekend so far. We had a beautiful and a pretty warm (for this time of year) day yesterday so me and my sweetie decided to go on a one-day trip to one of the bigger cities here. It was wonderful!!! I had an amazing time, but I was pretty tired after the whole day of walking around. But it was definitely worth it! :) If tomorrow is not raining we might go to another trip to the other side of the country. Sounds fun, doesn't it?

Today I'm staying in and I finally finished a card I started working on a couple of days ago; I'm a very slow crafter. lol I was inspired by this mood board that was posted on the Stempelglede blog. I chose some colours from the board and used them on my card (white, grey-ish, white, brown-ish and even a touch of pink).

Also, I don't know why, but most of the pictures on the board reminds me of winter and my first association when I think of winter is Christmas. So I went and made a Christmas card - first one this year.

I used the gorgeous angel stamp from Stempelglede. I think it's great for making vintage Christmas cards. I usually make square cards, but I wanted to do something a bit different this time so I made a rectangle card. All of the papers came from my stash. The music notes paper is actually from back in the days when I was still going to music school - and let me tell you, this was maaaaaaaany years ago. Darn, I'm getting old. lol Lace, doily, pins, snowflakes, bling, feathers and bead trims came from my stash. I sprinkeled the edges of the image with frantage.

I'm not sure if you can tell, but this card is really sparkly in real life. Snowflakes are covered with glitters and then there are all the sequins and gems as well.

Those hearts I used at the center of the snowflakes have been in my stash for ages. But I knew they would come handy one day. :)

I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Live and love crafts: Hearts (small hearts in the center of snowflakes)
Stempelglede: Inspiration photo
ABC Christmas: D is for die cuts
Papertake weekly: Bingo (die cut, free, glitter)

Black and white

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I'm enjoying my day off. :) It's lovely outside so I think I will go for a short walk after lunch - I need to go to the post office anyways.

A new challenge just started at Crafty ribbons and this forthnight we want to see your black and white creations. I have to admit this was a bit out of my comfort zone. While I do like black and white combination, I like a splash a colour with it too. So sticking to only those two colours was pretty hard for me. Luckily at least I had some black and white papers in my stash. I didn't want to make a black and white card, so I decided to make a box in those colours instead. And this is what I came up with.

See gorgeous laces I used on this project? It's from Crafty ribbons. One is Clermont cotton lace and the other one is not in the store yet. So consider this a sneak peek. ;) Flowers, bead string and bling came from my stash. The sentiment in an ornated frame is a gorgeous new stamp from Family forever stamp set that is available at Whimsy store. I covered the sentiment with glitter glue.

I made this butterfly with silicone mold and mod melt.

I can't wait to see your black and white creations - I hope you will come play with us! :)
Have a wonderful day! xx
