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.

Ice-cream for Any Day


Hello everybody! Today I share a very simple card with you which I made for FTHS sketch challenge Nr. 156. Such a simple sketch, but for me it was a challenge. Several times I put the card aside not knowing what to use for stripes. Then I decided for something unusual, as cross-stitching. Therefore a pink check background paper seemed to me as a perfect match. I stitched it around borders with sewing machine and then cross-stitched three stripes with red thread (for making holes I used the SewEasy tool - great toy by the way :-)). At the end I colored the image with complementing colors and matted with red circle. The result is an elegant CAS card suitable for any occasion. I like it, and I hope you as well ;-)

There is one more challenge I would like to enter with this card - Monthly challenge at FTHS - Free stamp of the Month June 2016
