Party in Green

16 Mar

bday-10Another card I made with birthdays in mind, but since there is no text on it, the card could easily be used for any kind of party.

I am not a big fan of pink (though I am a huge fan of green as you probably noticed), but I think that when it comes to papercraft, green and pink go perfect together and I am actually thinking of making few more cards in this colour palette… What do you think?

Birthday in Purple

9 Mar

bday-6Some time ago I was making a birthday card and now it’s time to share it. This one seems quite simple (yes, the simplicity of Valentine’s Day project still seems to be stiking with me), but I really liked purple papers and the overall result. As you can notice, I tried to break¬† the symetry a bit in this one.

Of course, since I pulled out all the papers and stickers, I wouldn’t stop at just one card, so there’s more to come soon!

Valentines 2014 – part 2

13 Feb

Pink might get a bit boring at times and I’m all for using non-standard colours for the particular themes (like making a Christmas card in purple or blue), so I couldn’t resist creating green Valentine’s Day cards:

But then, I always in the end come back to more traditional looks with hearts.

They look simple, but actually took quite a lot of time to finish as I had to cut around the stickers with a crafts knife to ensure all the spaces are cut properly and egdes are neat.

As usual, you can click on on the pictures to enlarge them and view details.

Valentines 2014 – part 1

12 Feb

Recently I have been busy with another big card project: I challenged myself to make as many Valentines cards as possible (until I run out of materials or patience) and see if I can hit 100. I didn’t manage to make so many, but in the end I still nearly beat my record (last year I made around 45 Christmas cards, but in the end this was spread out across two or three months) and ended up creating 38 various Valentines cards!

Since there were so many of them, I generally went for simplicity, squeezing as much as I could from this “heartful” theme. Over the next days I will be posting all of them until I gather them up in a Valentines 2014 gallery that will be available in the Sample Cards section, probably around next weekend.

Today it’s time for the first batch – I tried to group the similar ones together although they weren’t made in such order.¬†Please have a closer look at quite traditional, full of both hearts and pink cards (as usual, you can click on the picture to enlarge it and see all the details)!

Love Song

28 Jul

lovesongSo, here comes another challenge-inspired card. I think it might be pretty addictive, as those challenges are very inspiring. This time polish website Craft-Szafa challenged participants to play a “romantic tune”.

I came across some white flowers in my endless stash and decided to use them before I forget again that I have them. I thought of a wedding card, but then I wanted something more “universal”: this card will work as a wedding congratulation, a card for a beloved one (are there any romantic guys who still give their girlfriends cards?) or even a birthday card for this romantic girl, who reads books and listens to classic music all the time.

And since Craft-Szafa asks for a banner of their challenge, here it goes:

Simply Teddies

10 Jul

Did you like the Tatty Teddy card from the previous post? Well, there’s more of them!

As I mentioned, I got inspired by stickers I found in my supplies, but one card simply wasn’t enough. That’s why, following “all pink” Thank You card there are three more, made in a similar style.

The first one was horizontal and this time I decided to use purple paper for some contrast with pink. The pink stripey bit is actually a leftover from making pink card in the previous post. I hated to throw it away, so I used it in another card – placing it at the edge created a bit of assimetry and an interesting final result. Pictures of teddies were elevated, to add some volume and I also aranged them in a descending pattern, rather than aligning them to the purple self-adhesive ribbon.

I can tell you, I was very satisfied with the final result!

But still, I didn’t have enough ofthe cute teddies, so two more cards followed:

As you can see, these two are a bit more “traditional” – both in vertical aligment and in the design. Each of them is different, but using the same pattern and stickers makes them interesting series, don’t you think?

Simply Thank You

7 Jul

simplythyWhile browsing through my supplies I came across some Tatty Teddy stickers and decided it was time to use them for something – something cute… Therefore, a pink card with simple stripes and two stickers elevated a bit to make it look more interesting.

Of course, this isn’t the only card I made with this sweet teddy, but I will show you more tomorrow…

You’re My Cupcake!

3 Jul

cupcake1On Sunday I presented you with a birthday cupcake card, but that’s not the only “sweet-treat” card I made. Today – another one, in a little bit different style. It can be a birthday card, but could also be given to a friend, or a daughter, or maybe even that special girl…

I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant to mix pink and blue, but the overall effect satisfied me – the colours blended nicely and created an interesting result.

Pink Orc Will Miss You

bye17Another goodbye card for a coworker. This time it was more of a joke, since he likes orcs and hates pink. The card might look simple, but took two hours to finish.

More Spring Butterflies

Yesterday I mentioned that I will show a different outcome from the same material used. Alright, I cheated a bit – the stickers are slightly different in shape and the text is different (also, the black stones are slightly smaller), but the concept stays the same and I used exactly the same papers as in Spring Butterflies in previous post. I like playing around with the same materials, ideas – and still create quite unique cards.
