Today I’m a Guest Designer for a Bloomcraft

 

Hi, today I’m inspiring in a Bloomcraft blog with they new challenge with a moodboard.

 

 

As an inspiration for this challenge I made a card for a woman who loves tea and books(same as me 🙂 ). I used 2 from this year trends – mandala and color of the year 2018 from Panton Ultra Violet. I drew mandala by myself(very relaxing acctivity 😉 ) with a bit of help from calipers. Then I drew on a top with Wersamark marker and I heat embossed it. I painted it with watercolors and fussy cut it. I didn’t forget about free graphic from a Bloomcraft :). Background and a cup are made from an old book, and flowers are, of course, made by me. I also used papers from a Lemoncraft collection called “Tiny Miracles Basic”. And now who will say: I don’t like a violet? 😉

Hello, today I’m a Guest Designer in Craft-o-clock challenge(to inspire you). Please visit they page to get some more information and take a part in current challenge:

I made light, fresh and very feminine birthday card. For a background I used paper number 3 from “Marzenia o Poranku” collection. I cut some part of it into a strip, wet it down and fold in accordion shape( I even pinched it a bit, to give it more distressed look), and thanks to this paper will better keep this his form.

Flowers are of course made by me – big rose is from foamiran and flower with a shiny center and small rose is from a paper. There is also lots of twine, stitching, tulle and embossed on vellum leaves. I either used buttons in blue color, paper nr 3 from collection called “My Precious – Boy”. Lovely badge is actually glued to a paper an acrylic sticker.
Have a nice day

Card called exploding box

 

Hello, today I have a bit different than usual card, because is in box shape – perfect for handing in person. To do it I used papers from Lemoncraft collection called “Everyday Spring Basic”(sic!).

Mug with cocoa, whipped cream and sugar cane is made by me using watercolors, and glued using 3D squares. “Foam” is sprinkled with brown glitter, which suppose to mimic chocolate powder. Decorative gingerbread  is made using real spices and smells very realistic, but is much harder and much more stronger than those made for eating 😛  Decoration which imitates icing is a stamped and white embossed. Don’t you think that the altogether looks very yummy? My husband-glutton says it looks 😉

Second side of a box – pouch with mitten contains tag, which I left plain for a greetings. I dry embossed glove using embossing folder, which gives it knitted look.

Third side of a box is made from circles and doily and date of Christmas Day(just in case if someone forgot it 😉 )

I stamped Santa using waterproof ink Staz on, I painted him using watercolors and glued with 3D foam.

Christmas tree in a middle is made from thick paper cut from circle shape and pasted with crepe paper (which I painted white). I glued some pearls and confetti star on the top.

 

I’m sending my exploding box to Lemoncraft challenge:

 

My card is also go to Uniko:

How to use used presents papers?(tutorial+tag)

 

Do you also have hidden used presents papers that you don’t want to through away? I definitely have 😉 Today I will show you how to used them as a element of a card.

So just prepare:

-piece of paper(I used 160gsm)

-brush

-PVA glue

-scissors

-chalk paint(acrylic or latex works well too)

-used presents paper

 

1.Tear up paper to a smaller pieces(you can also crumble it which gives extra texture) and glue them to a paper. If you like game Tetris this task is for you 😉  Don’t forget about the edges of overlapping pieces.

 

2.Cut hanging out pieces.

 

3.Leave it to dry(you can use a heat tool)

 

4.Paint a whole sheet using a dry brush technique but  leave some unpainted spots

 

5.When it dries you can use it as a background or cut it with a scissors or dies

 

Instead of paper for packing presents you can also use a silver lined paper from chocolate(crumbled and glued this way will give a nice texture).

I, of course, couldn’t stop myself from use my leaves straight away in a tag:

My project have handmade flower, pieces of ribbons and fabrics. Star it’s actually cutted in half styrofoam form and pasted with a silver from a Ferrero Rocher :p

My tag goes to Manuna challenge:

 

I’m also sending it to Craft Passion Bingo challenge- I’m using diagonal line- TWIGS/LEAVES-FLOWERS-LAYERS:

 

i would like to take a part in Zielone Koty challenge:

Once a Beautiful Lady

 

Today I have another Christmas card made for an order(I’m slowly catching this mood 🙂 ) My work will be send by mail in bauble envelope, so it has to be more flat than my usual cards. I kept  this card in traditional Christmassy colours and inspiration for it was moodboard from a Studio 75. Main decoration here is lovely graphic from Lemoncraft, which reminds me of a beautiful carol(I took my sentiment from there). In my project I used sisal, diecutted elements, ribbons, snowballs made from cotton, stars cut out with knife from a whine cork, gems and an openwork sweater with silver thread( 🙂 ). Background is paper called “Snow Queen” from Galeria Papieru.

Hi, I was playing with watercolours creating another card and I used paper towel to clean up the mess. Then I discovered beautiful pattern on it, so I glued this to card base to make a background. I cut petals from baby wipe, painted it with turquoise and gold acrylic paint and dry it with a heat gun. I allowed them to curl a bit to make nice petals and saw it together.

Centre of a flower is actually die cut snowflake. Sentiment was stamped and cut by hand. I also used my fabric and crochet flowers, another die cut and bit of sisal and few gems. Butterfly is heat embossed and painted with thread antennas. Leaves are painted with watercolours and twisted by hand.

I hope you like my card
