Welcome

Hi! My name is Kika. Welcome to my page full of handmade greeting cards. I love crafting of all kinds - from scrapbooking, painting, to any kind of needlework (visit my other blogs, too - right sidebar).
Cardmaking is a special form of crafting - whether we're wishing someone well, inviting them to a party, saying thank you or just celebrate a holiday, there's plenty of occasions in life where a handmade card says it all. However, it might happen that new ideas can be hard to come by. That's where I'd like to help. Just make a coffee, sit down and look to my page for some ideas, inspiration or step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy the time!

Vitajte na mojej stránke zameranej na ručne vyrábané papierové pozdravy. Venujem sa rôznej umeleckej tvorbe - od scrapbookingu, maľovania, až po šitie, pletenie, či vyšívanie (navštívte aj moje iné blogy s týmito témami - bočný panel vpravo). Tvorba pohľadníc je špeciálny druh umenia - či už chcete niekomu popriať veľa zdravia, pozvať na party, poďakovať alebo osláviť sviatky, vždy je dosť príležitostí v živote, kedy to všetko môžete vyjadriť ručne vyrobeným pozdravom. Občas sa však môže stať, že nový nápad neprichádza. Tu by som chcela pomôcť. Urobte si kávičku, pohodlne sa usaďte a pozrite si moje stránky, nájdite nové nápady, inšpirácie alebo krok za krokom návody. Nech sa páči.

Christmas Card in Green 'n' Brown



I was thrilled by Challenge at Dynamic Duos Nr. 78, where they picked these wonderful colors - Crumb Cake and Artichoke. Immediately I started to play with my stamps and papers and this is what came out after a short time. 
Stamped flower is colored with water colors and white watercolor pencil, swirl and sentiment is embellished with glue and glitter powder. Borders of the main motives are thorn and smudged with dry chalks.

Papers - white (size A5), brown (A6), light brown (A6) and olive / artichoke green (A6) cardstock
Stamps - flower (docrafts Papermania, First Noel - Poinsettia), sentiment (docrafts Papermania, Home for Christmas)
Colors - water colors (Lefranc and Bourgeois) - green, watercolor pencil - white (KOH-I-NOOR), dry stencil chalks - brown and green (EK Success), brushes

(SK): Veľmi ma oslovila súťaž na stránke Dynamic Duos, kde vybrali tieto dve úžasné farby - hnedú a artičokovo zelenú. Okamžite som sa začala hrať so svojimi pečiatkami a papiermi a toto je to, čo som za krátku chvíľu vytvorila.
Vytlačené kvety som vyfarbila vodovými farbami a bielou akvarelovou pastelkou, špirálku a nadpis som zvýraznila lepidlom a zeleným glitrovým práškom. Okraje som obtrhala a vytieňovala suchým pastelom.

Materiál a pomôcky:
Papiere - biely (A5), hnedý, svetlo hnedý a olivovo zelený výkres (A6)
Pečiatky - kvet (docrafts Papermania, First Noel - Poinsettia), nadpis (docrafts Papermania, Home for Christmas)
Farby - akvarelové farby (Lefranc and Bourgeois) - zelená, akvarelové pastelky - biela (KOH-I-NOOR), suchý pastel na šablóny - hnedý a zelený (EK Success), štetce
Doplnky - glitrový prášok zelený, tekuté lepidlo, tenký štetec
Ostatné - rezačka na papier, tyčinkové lepidlo

  7. Wow Kika, I've just come from enjoying your card "Christmas Love" and wow, what contrast in style from a very beautiful Traditional Christmas Card to this amazing contemporary Christmas card. Oh, I love the softness of your colouring and shading that you have achieved in this card and the gentle use of some sparkle to highlight your sentiment. This card is so gentle and calming. Very beautiful - and now I'm on my way to your 3rd entry and I'm excited. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
