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.

Best Wishes Card

Warbler and Magnolias, Birthday Card, 10,5 x 15 cm

Hi! Few days ago I've got this awesome new image from FTHS and I couldn't wait to use it. The challenge Nr. 105 at FTHS seemed to be just perfect for it. It was a sketch with a funny twist - to make it fast :-) So I did! I colored the image with watercolor pencils and water brush in less than 3 minutes (this technique is great, you don't have to wash your brush and the result looks like true watercolor painting), then I embossed two of the matting papers, cut out the image, sentiment and glued all nicely together! 
With a telephone call from my hubby it took me about 20 minutes. I always spend a lot of time thinking about papers and colors, matching them together. This time, thanks to color of magnolia on the image, it was clear. Violet or violet :-) I love that color anyhow, therefore it was very fast this time...
