Wishing you rainbows and eternal happiness

Hello everybody! Ha, three posts in a row. I bet you didn't see this coming. lol I'm actually late with this card - it should have been posted on my blog on September 1. But I mixed the themes so I had to make something new. *ooops* So, without even further delay, here's my card for this month's challenge at The Sketchy Challenges


The theme this month is "Across the miles/Travel". You are probably scratching your head thinking what does this card have to do with the theme. Well, see that adorable mousey with the balloon? In my head that balloon is the mouse's transportation and it carries it far away to the person who is getting this card in the mail to wish them a very happy birthday. ;) I mean, surely you can travel somewhere far with a balloon, right? Especially if you are a mouse. :P

I kept this card pretty simple. I layered different coloure cardstock and then on top I used some design paper from my stash. In the center I made a shaker and filled it with pretty yellow and blue heart shaped sequins. I fuzzy cut the mice and glued them on top of the shaker. Then I just added some pearls in the other two corners.



Mice are clear stamps from CC designs. I coloured these cuties with pencils. Unfortunately you can't see this in the picture, but I covered the balloon with Wink of Stella, so it's really sparkly in person.


So much from me today. I hope you will come play with us at The Sketchy Challenges. You can win a wonderful prize from our generous sponsor if you do. Just saying... ;)

Have a colourful day! xx

Simple foamiran flowers

Hello everybody! I'm back with another tutorial on how to make these simple foamiran flowers.


To make these flowers I used red and green foamiran, white stamens for the center and Rosy Dot AC3 dies. All of these things are available at Magnolia-licious store. If you like these flowers and want to learn how to make them yourself just watch the video bellow.



Have a beautiful day!

I'd like to enter my flowers to the foolowing challenge:
As you like it: Favourite non-card project (I like to make my own flowers because I can make them in any size I want and in pretty much any colour I want so that they go nicely with the paper)

Back to school or Christmas?

Hey everybody! Things finally settled down here a bit and my crafty corner is more or less done, so I finally got to do some crafting. :) I think I will be very busy crafting in the following months, because I need to stack up on Christmas and birthday cards. Eeek! I've already made a few, bot not even remotely as many as I need. What about you? Have you started making Christmas cards yet?

Anyways, a new monthly challenge just started at Magnolia-licious blog and while the main theme is "back to school", we also have an "anything goes" option. As you are about to see I chose this one - I will take any "excuse" I can get to make Christmas cards. He he.


I decided to colour this adorable Christmas Tilda from Christmas party 2017 collection. I stamped the image on neenah white solar paper and did the colouring with pencils. 


Papers are from Maja Design Celebration collection. The music notes paper is an actual music paper from back when I was still going to music school (which was looooong ago lol). The big lace is from my stash and the "smaller" lace is from Magnolia-licious store.


I hope you will come play with us. :) Have a beautiful day! xx

Corsage

Hello there! Phew, it's been a while since my last post. But the last 2-3 months have been crazy busy and I barely had any time to craft. Now things are SLOWLY coming together so hopefully I will have some more free time again. 

About a week ago we moved to our new home. Moving to a completely new country is definitely a challenge, especially since we don't know the language (yet), but I am sure we will get through it. So far I like our new place. The town is lovely, people seem to be nice, apartment is bright and I have a nice crafty space in it too. So I really can't complain. ;) I am a bit worried because of the language - not many people understand english - but I am starting a language course in September and til then I will continue to learn on my own. Wish me luck!

Today I want to show you a corsage I made for the wedding. 


I only used paper flowers and two berries/pearls. All of the flowers and leaves are from I am roses and the berries/pearls are from my stash.


The medium white flowers that I used for the corsage are the same I had in my hair for the wedding. ;)



The colours of the wedding were white, silver and light yellow, so I chose flowers in those colours for the corsage.



That's it for today. I wish you a wonderful day!
Bye bye :)

I am roses: Anything goes

You nailed it

Hey there! I'm sorry I've been quiet lately, but I have soooooooo many things going on right now... So today's post is going to be a short one too. I just wanted to let you know that a new challenge started at Magnolia-licious blog yesterday. Be sure to check it out.

Here's my card...

I used one of the images from the Magnolia's Fixer upper collection - the image is called You nailed it Tilda. The sentiment comes with the image.


I stamped the image on neenah solar white paper and coloured it with pencils.


Papers are from Maja design Celebration collection, which is also available in Magnolia-licious store. I embellished the card with some pearls, crystals, lace, sequins and a piece of danedelion chipboard. Stitched circles are from Rox stamps.

Have a beautiful day! xx

Plant a seed of friendship

Hello everybody! I'm here today with a card I created for the new challenge at Magnolia-licious.

I stamped the image on neenah paper and coloured it with pencils. I used papers, doily, crystals and flowers from my stash. I also used some sequins and pearls to decorate the card.

Invitations (Vabila)

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I've been super busy lately - with crafting and with other things. That's why I haven't been very active online either. I want to share some news with you which will tell you what kept me busy. Sooooo...

First of all - I am getting married in a week! :D Woohoo! It's all happened so fast so I didn't have as much time to plan everything as I would normally want, but things are coming together now, so all is good. I still have some things to do, but I know I can do them. :)

Another big news is that I am moving to another country. I won't go into details about when, where etc., but I will tell you that it's soon. So looking at the apartment there, learning the language etc. are the things that keep me busy as well.

So, as you can imagine my crafty time has been very limited. I did however manage to make wedding invitations. Luckily it's a small wedding with only close relatives, so I didn't have to make THAT many. ;) I kept the design the same, but I did change some flowers, papers etc. for some of them. Want to see the pictures? Here you go...


And another one with the different big flower


All the invitations were made with Craft and you papers. Most of the flowers I used are from I am roses, but on some invitations I used flowers from other brands as well. I made the butterflies myself with modge molds and white modge melts. Doilies and lace came from my stash. The sentiment is in slovenian and it means "invitation". It's a clear stamp from Mavelu. I embossed it with gold embossing powder from Ranger.




I made these also as an inspiration for the current challenge at The sketchy challenges. Be sure to check the challenge out if you want to have a chance to win some crafty goodies.

So much from me today.

Have a beautiful day! xx
