Darilna embalaža/Gift card holder (tutorial)

Lep pozdrav vsem skupaj! Upam, da preživljate lep vikend. Spodnja objava je nastala v sodelovanju s podjetjem Rayher.

Ste že kdaj podarili komu za rojstni dan darilno kartico? No, jaz sem. Pa ne samo enkrat. Zato sem se odločila, da vam tokrat pokažem, kako lahko iz papirnate vrečke naredite lično embalažo za darilne kartice in skrito drobno presenečenje. :)

Hello everybody! Today I made a tutorial on how to make a gift card holder that also holds a small hidden surprise. It's made of a small "sandwich paper bag". i hope the pictures explain it well, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Pa začnimo ...

Potrebovali boste naslednje stvari:
- natron vrečko
- dekorativni papir (jaz sem uporabila tega in tega)
- štampiljko (jaz sem uporabila Mama Elephant - Over the rainbow)
- medije za barvanje motiva (jaz sem motiv odtisnila na Langton akvarelni papir in ga pobarvala z distress blazinicami)
- trak (jaz sem uporabila bel organza trak širine 1 cm)
- robni luknjač (jaz sem uporabila tega)
- Spellbinders šablone
- luknjač z motivom metuljčka
- rožice
- perle
- kristalčke
- gesso (bel)

Darilo vrečko najprej prepognite na mestu, ki je prikazano na spodnji sliki.



Nato vse skupaj še enkrat prepognite na polovico.


Če vrečko razgrnete, dobite to ...


Z lepilom ali obojestranskim lepilnim trakom prilepite spodnji del vrečke na osnovo.


Nato od spodnjega dela vrečke do sredinskega pregiba z lepilom ali obojestranskim lepilnim trakom zlepite stranska dela vrečke (zgoraj in spodaj).


Po želji vse obrobe in pregibe pobarvajte z akrilno barvo, ki se bo ujemala z barvo vašega dekorativnega papirja.


Na mesti, kjer piše "tape", prilepite obojestranski lepilni trak.


Pripravite "strani" za vašo embalažo. Potrebovali boste štiri kartončke v velikosti 9.5x7.5 cm in en kartonček v velikosti 7.5x4.5 cm (v primeru, da boste uporabili vrečko drugih dimenzij, prilagodite velikost "strani").


Ko boste lepili levo sredinsko stran (stran, na kateri bo žepek za darilno kartico), najprej prilepite dekorativni kartonček na stran, šele nato čez "žepek".



Na prvo in na zadnjo stran nalepite trak, da boste embalažo lahko zavezali - to storite preden boste prilepili dekorativna kartončka.


Embalažo okrasite po svojih željah. :)


Jaz sem za naslovnico izbrala štampiljko Mama Elephant in romantičen papir proizvajalca Craft and you. Dodala sem še nekaj izrezov, ki so narejeni s Spellbinders šablonama ter nekaj rožic proizvajalca I am roses. Za zavezovanje sem uporabila bel organza trak. Motiv je pobarvan z distress blazinicami.

Takole je videti sredinski del moje embalaže.


Na levi strani je prostor ("žepek") za darilno kartico, ki sem ga okrasila s perlami in borduro, ki sem jo naredila z luknjačem.


Na desno stran pa sem odtisnila napis, ki je iz istega seta kot motiv, ki sem ga uporabila na sprednji strani.


V embalaži se skriva tudi drobno (ustvarjalno) presenečenje. ;)


Tako, to je to za danes. Upam, da vam je vodič všeč. Želim vam čim lepši dan! :)

I'd like to enter my gift card holder to the following challenges:
Simon says: Work it wednesday - inking technique (I love colouring with my distress inks)

What is your favourite colour?

Hello everybody! I am back with a new card. :) A new challenge just started at The sketchy challenges blog and this time we would like to see what will you create with your favourite colours. A pretty simple challenge, right?

Well, normally I would say my favourite colours are pastel colours, pink, teal etc., but I didn't use those on my card. And I am not cheating, I swear. lol It is just that it depends on the occassion what colours I choose for my project. I for one can't make a pink and teal Easter card. I know some (probably many) of you can, but I can't. My favourite colours for making Easter cards are yellow, orange, red, maybe a bit of green here and there. So those are the colours I chose for my card today.


Currently my "go to" papers are from My mind's eye's paper pad (The sweetest thing - tangerine). I used those on this card too. Again I used a sweet bunny from CC design for the center of my card. 


The other stamped images are from The Greeting Farm. I did the colouring with pencils.

I embellished the card with some pearls, ribbon and some flowers. Most of them are from I am roses, and the rest are from my stash.


So much from me today. Have a great day! xx

Tilda with little chickens

Hello everybody! I'm here today with a new card. I decided to play with another recently released stamp from Magnolia's Sunbeam collection - this time I chose Tilda with little chickens.


Isn't she a cutie? I really like this whole collection. I stamped the image on neenah solar white paper and coloured it with pencils. It's hard to see in the photo, but I also played with my pencils to create background. 


I made the flowers myself. I used Whimsy stamps Lily flower die set, Rosy dot AC3 dies, several different stamens and 2 different colours of foamiran.  Other embellishments I used on my card are white berries, lace, pearls and paper doily. I also used one of the newly released doohickeys - Wedding lace. Papers are from MME.


This is it from me for today. See you again soon. :) Have a beautiful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:

Hop to it

Hello everybody! How are you doing? How was your Easter? Did you do anything special or you don't even celebrate it? We had a traditional family breakfast at my grandparents' place. It was lovely. 

We have a new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious challenge blog and the theme is "Anything goes with option rain". I went with AG and made a cute little tag that I used on one of the Easter gifts.


I used the new bunny stamp from one of the Magnolia's Sunbeam collection. I stamped the image on neenah desert storm paper and coloured it with my pencils. Tag is an older Magnolia die. I didn't find it in the store, but if you message Shawn (the owner) I'm sure he will try his best to get it for you. Did you know Shawn also sells lace in his store? The one I used on my tag is from there. ;)

This is it for today. See you again tomorrow. Bye bye

Cute little bunny

Hello everybody! Have you checked the recent sketch challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog yet? No? What are you waiting for? We have an amazing prize for one lucky winner. ;) I'm a bit late with my card, but I finally managed to get it done. Here's what the sketch looks like...


And here's my card...


I wanted to make a spring/Easter card and this little bunny seemed perfect for it. I absolutely LOVE these MME papers and I wish I bought more when they were still selling them. Some things I just never learn. *sigh* The cute little bunny is a CC design stamp (Carrot Love) and I coloured him with Faber Castell pencils ( just regular, cheap ones). Flowers and butterflies are The Greeting Farm stamps. The only embellishment I used on this card are some pearls.


I hope you will ocme play with us. Have a wonderful day! xx

Wonderful Tilda

Hello everybody! I'm back again with another Magnolia card. I just got some new crafty things and I used quite a few of them on my card. Most of them are available at Magnolia-licious store.


This image is called Wonderful Tilda and I just couldn't wait to colour her. I mean, look at her, isn't she a cutie? I coloured her with distress inks. the gorgeous papers are from Maja design Celebration collection. I made the flowers myself from white foamiran and different teal and silver stamens that you can find here. To make the flowers I used Rosy Dot AC3 die and Whimsy stamps Lily flower die set. I made a tutorial for the small flowers I used on my card - you can check it here if you'd like. See the stitched circles I used? They are Rox Stamps dies and they are awesome - real good quality and great price. I embellished the card with some black crystals, pearl string, tiny pearls and some lace and rose ribbon/trim. The black lace is from my stash and the beige lace and rose trim are from Magnolia-licious store


Don't forget that the new challenge started yesterday at Magnolia-licious blog. Theme is AG (with *option* Easter) and you don't even have to use Magnolia stamp to join in - see sidebar on the challenge blog for details. I hope you will come play with us. xx

Shake it... Christmas

Hello everybody! It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious blog and the theme is Anything goes with option of Easter. Remember, you do NOT have to use Magnolia stamps on your creation if you don't have any; you can also use Stambing Bella, Whimsy Stamps or CC Designs images.

I decided to go with AG for my card and I didn't do the Easter theme. However, the DT had an extra challenge to make a shaker card, and I did that.


I'm realy trying to make Christmas cards all year long this year so I will have enough when December comes. For my card I used the adorable Divine angel Tilda stamp. I coloured the image with distress inks and I added Stickles on Tilda's wings. Papers are from DCWV. I embellished the card with some crystals, pearl string, pom pom ribbon and some lace.


I hope you will come play with us this month. Have a beautiful day!

Frame it

Hello there! How are you doing? We got LOTS of new snow over the last couple of days so I am very happy I have the chance to stay in where it's warm. I really don't have any desire to go out into that cold. And what's worse is that the weathermen are saying the next week will be even worse - more snow and even colder. Pffff... Not something I'm looking forward to. But on the other hand, this is a perfect excuse to stay in and do some crafting. ;)

Earlier this month my sweet little baby girl was celebrating her second birthday and to add to the celebration I made a couple of heart earrings and I'm giving two people the chance to win a pair in their desired colour. This is what the earrings look like (sorry for the bad photo)...


If you want a pair, all you need to do is to comment on my Instagram photo here or on the photo on my Facebook with the colour you'd like. Blog comments do NOT count. You have til Sunday 9 am (my time) to leave your comment.

We are having family over for celebration tomorrow and we're also having a cake then. We are having a panda themed party, because pandas are "big hit" with my lil one at the moment. :)

Anyways, enough about that. I need to tell you about the new challenge that just started at The Sketchy Challenges blog. This time we would like you to use a frame of some sort on your creations. Here's my card - a birthday one. ;)


To make this card I used leftover pieces of paper from Prima's Romance novel paper pad. I just love this pad, so I couldn't part with those small strips of paper. I usually don't save them, but I did with this paper. And I'm really happy I did. :) I got inspiration for this type of project at Natascha's blog, because she often uses scraps of paper on her cards. 


To decorate the card I used some gorgeous flowers, pearls and crystals. Image is from Whiff of joy and I coloured it with pencils.

So much from me today. I hope you will come play with us! :)

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Deep ocean: Cute and cuddly
Let's craft and create: Anything goes
Cute card Thursday: Cute critters
Allsorts: I spy with my little eye, something beginning with B (butterflies, black, birthday cake)

Easy foamiran flower tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I have a new foamiran flower tutorial for you. It's a very, very easy one, but I hope you will like it anyway. :) These are the flowers I'm gonna show you how to make...

I also used eyeshadow to do some shading on the flowers.

And here's the video tutorial on how to make these. 


I hope you'll find this tutorial useful and that you will make a few of these. ;)

Birthday wishes

Heya! I'm back with yet another card What can I say... It's been pretty busy in my crafty corner in the last couple of days. ;) 

Today I want to show you a card I made for my mom's birthday that's coming later this month. She stopped by when I had it on my crafty table, so she has already seen it (ooops), but I told her she's not getting it before the birthday. At least it's safe for me to post it on my blog without worrying of spoiling a surprise. ;)

Here's the card.


I used beautiful papers from Maja Design and very cute Dressed for festivity Tilda stamp. I coloured the image with distress inks. I made the flowers myself - I used RosyDot #3 and Whimsy Lily flower dies. I used ecru and olive green foamiran, and yellow glitter stamens, double headed white stamens and ecru micro bead stamens. All of these products are available in Magnolia-licious store. At the end I also embellished the card with some lace, pearls and crystals.

That's it from me today. Have a wonderful day!

AG with option of Valentines at Magnolia-licious

Hello everybody! It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-licious blog. This time we have an AG theme with option of Valentines.

I decided to stick with "anything goes" theme and created this CAS card.


The image I used on my card is Aladdin Tilda with lamp and you can find it at Magnolia-licious store. I coloured it with Promarkers and pencils. Next to it I stamped a sentiment which I thought was perfect for this image and embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I just added some small stars around and my card was done.

I hope you will come play with us. Remember, you do NOT need to Magnolia image to participate in our challenges, images from other companies that are for sale in the store are also acceptable. :)

Have a beautiful day! See you again tomorrow! xx

Apron full of hearts

Hello everybody! How are you? Do you have any snow where you live? We got a lot over the weekend so I am more than happy to share some. Where was all this snow at Christmas when we actually wanted it?!

Valentine's day is just around the corner so I am curious how you celebrate it. Me and my other half usually don't to be honest. We like to give each other small surprises all year long at random days, so we have many "fake Valentine's days" through the year instead of just one in February.

Earlier this year I was asked if I wanted to be a guest designer for The Paper Nest Dolls. I was really honoured and of course I said yes. :D I got to play with this adorable digi stamp that is perfect for Valentine's day cards, as well as for other occasions.


I coloured the image with Faber Castell pencils - nothing fancy, just regular school pencils.


For my card I used some beautiful papers from MME. These papers are really great, because they come with some sentiments and words that you can cut out and use them on your projects - like I did on my card. I embellished the card with some lace and pearls from my stash.

That's all from me for today. See you again tomorrow. :)

Lots of sparkle

Hi everybody! Wow, can you believe that January has almost came to an end? I don't know about you, but I have the feeling we were celebrating Christmas just a week ago. Time's running by so quickly! How has the first month of 2018 been for you? We got some great news, some good news and some bad news, so it's been a mix of everything. But it's been mostly good, so I'm not complaining. I'm just hoping it'll continue the way it started.

Today starts a new challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog and this time we have  sketch for you. I like sketches, but I have to admit this one was a tough one for me, because it was so clean and simple. I kept wanting to add layers. But at the end I managed to resist the temptation and so I made this card.


Earlier this month I received a happy mail from my sweet friend (thank you Ren!) and among all the amazing things she sent me was also this amazing glittery washi tape. I absolutely love it. I used it to create background on my card. Then I cut a piece of white cardstock and embossed it with cuttlebug's embossing folder. I finished the card with some pearls, glittery star sticker and glittery snowflake ornamentt. In the center of the snowflake I glued the word "joy" which I stamped on a white cardstock and cut out with my scissors.


I hope you will come play with us.

Have a wonderful day! xx

Foamiran flowers tutorial

Hello everybody! Today I don't have any card to share with you, but I have something else - a foamiran flower tutorial. :D Did you know there are lots and lots of foamiran colours available in Magnolia-licious store? For my flowers I used pink, lemonblue and mint foamiran and Magnolia stethoscope die, which is also available in Magnolia-licious store.


There are really easy and fun to make. I hope you like them and will give them a try. :) Here you can watch the tutorial...


Have a wonderful day! xx

P. S. You still have plenty of time to join our challenge at Magnolia-licious blog. We have an "Anything goes" theme right now. And you do NOT need to use Magnolia image to play with us - you can also use CC design, Whimsy stamps or Stamping Bella images. ;)

Wonderful Xmas

Hello my crafty friends! I have another Christmas card to share with you. This one was made last year and it has already arrived to its destination, but I haven't gotten the chance to show it here yet. 

I don't use digi stamps often, because 1.) my printer is almost always out of ink, 2.) no matter what I do my ink runs if I do the colouring with distress inks and 3.) if there is ink in my printer, I am often too lazy to print digis. I find it much easier and faster to just stamp an image on the paper. All that being said, this digi I used on the card I'm about to show you was just too cute not to be used. It's been sitting in the folder on my computer for quite a while, just waiting to be used. It took me a while to finally print it (see reason no. 3 above), but eventually I did it. Luckily more than once so I can use it again this year if I feel like it. :P

Anyways, here's my card...


The image is from Whimsy stamps and it was a freebie some time ago. I coloured it with pencils. 


Papers are from Folia and Docraft. I used several different dies on this card (from LLLC, LDRS...) and I spelled Xmas with glittery alphabet stickers. Those flowers/snowflakes around the image came with the same set as the alphabet stickers. To decorate the card I used some crystals.


So much from me today. Have a beautiful day! xx

Christmas blessings

Hey there! Me again. I bet you didn't see this one coming. lol ;) Today I have another Magnolia card to share with you. It's a Christmas one. I know, I know, you saw A LOT of those in the past month, but I hope you haven'te gotten tired of them yet. lol I'm making Christmas cards all year long this year so I will have enough of them at the end of the year. Well, at least that's the plan. :P


On this card I used the cute Christmas Tilda stamp from Christmas party collection. I coloured the image with distress inks and at the end I covered Tilda's dress and shoes with Wink of Stella for some shimmering look, but unfortunately you can't see this in the photo. I made the flowers myself with white Foamiran. This thing is so much fun to play with! If you haven't already, give it a try. Shawn has a lot of colours available in the store. Papers and embellishments came from my stash. All the layers are put together with foam pads to give the card some dimension.
