Jana’s card for her friend

Hello again,

I couldn’t help putting this on the blog. I love whatever my daughter (5 years old)¬†creates as I believe that art should be encouraged at an early age. One summer afternoon we were sitting together at our “craft studio” (aka dining table) crafting together. The outcome is a cute card she made for her friend.

Jana used Abby’s spring stamp set and a mini MISTI to help her in crisp results. She can totally use this tool on her own! She coloured her images with Shinhan markers (oh how happy she is when she can play with my stuff). I fussy cut everything for her while she worked on her background: applied blue ink through a SSS raindrops stencil on a blue card base. Then she arranged her images on her own, asking me to cut a little hill for her. She chose the colour of the cardstock from some scraps and supervised how high I cut the hill (she is very bossy). I helped her in gluing the images where she placed them initially.

As a final touch she added a loooot of shimmer with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, to show the rain on the flowers and the girl – as everything should be wet in such a heavy rainūüôā We made a little enamel heart together with Nuvo Drops, it is embellishing the little girl’s hair.

I am so proud of her creation, her colour choices are great and matching. My little artistūüôā

The recipient was amazed too.

I want this cheerful piece of art to take part in the SSS Kids Challenge.


If you like what Jana created, please leave her a comment below, she will be over the moon to get some encouragement. Thank you.

Ma egy vend√©g mŇĪv√©sz alkot√°s√°t szeretn√©m megmutatni nektek, nem tudtam meg√°llni, hogy ne √≠rjak r√≥la p√°r sort. A vend√©g a kisl√°nyom Jana, 5 √©ves. Egy k√©peslapot k√©sz√≠tett kis bar√°tnŇĎj√©nek.

20160814_175017 wm

Egy nyomd√°z√°st seg√≠tŇĎ eszk√∂zzel (mini MISTI)¬†egyed√ľl lepecs√©telte a SSS Abby’s spring nyomdak√©szletbŇĎl a kisl√°nyt √©s a vir√°gokat, majd Shinhan alkoholos filcekkel kisz√≠nezte ŇĎket. √Čn v√©gtam ki neki¬† a k√©peket, am√≠g ŇĎ a h√°tteret k√©sz√≠tette: k√©k kartonra egy esŇĎcseppes stencil seg√≠ts√©g√©vel ny√°ri zivatart var√°zsolt k√©k tint√°val √©s egy szivacsos applik√°torral.

Ňź rendezte el a k√©peket a h√°tt√©ren, majd z√∂ld kartont v√°lasztott √©s megk√©rt, hogy – szigor√ļ ellenŇĎrz√©s mellett egy megfelelŇĎ m√©retŇĪ – dombot v√°gjak neki. A felragaszt√°sban seg√≠tettem. Mikor k√©szen voltunk, egy j√≥ nagy adag csill√°m ker√ľlt a k√©pekre egy √°tl√°tsz√≥ csill√°mos toll seg√≠ts√©g√©vel, mert h√°t aki esŇĎben √°zik, az bizony vizes lesz. A kisl√°ny haj√°t egy piros sz√≠vecske d√≠sz√≠ti.

Nagyon b√ľszke vagyok erre az alkot√°sra, a sz√≠nv√°laszt√°sra, az elrendez√©sre √©s mindenre, amit a kis mŇĪv√©szem k√©sz√≠t. Szerintem nem lehet el√©g kor√°n kezdeni. Ha nektek is tetszik, k√©rlek b√°tor√≠ts√°tok egy-k√©t kedves sz√≥val Jan√°t, nagyon √∂r√ľlne ha hagyn√°tok neki egy kis √ľzenetet.


Szép napot,

Good morning card for my love

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in with a simple card I made the other day for my beloved and wonderful husband. When he is at home with us, I love to pamper him and make his breakfast accompanied with a little note. I just express my love and gratitude in this wayūüôā

20160816_190814 wm

I attended some of the Online Card Classes recently and in the Stenciled one I saw a cute layout from Kristina Werner which fit my “quick-and-easy” need for a fast morning card. I used a piece of dark grey cardstock and die cut with a YNS border die to get a notebook edge. I stamped the whole panel with MFT Romantic script background stamp and a dark grey ink. For my focal image I stamped an MFT sentiment from on of my favourite sets (I love you more), put the MFT Staggered Hearts stencil over and lightly added red ink on it with a stencil brush. Around the sentiment I made it very light, while o the top and the bottom I added more ink for the ombre look.

20160816_190918 wm

I quickly coloured the heart with Shinhan markers, added some clear shimmer with the Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer pen and made it shiny with glossy accents.

20160816_190827_001 wm

I took a ruler and added white dash lines to the right edge of the grey mat, like I saw from Kristina. This little trick makes such a difference for me.

20160816_190902 wm

Simple and easy card, ready in short time which makes it perfect for a morning love noteūüôā

I will play along once more with the SSS Wednesday Challenge: Make for the border, this is my second card for this challenge.

I hope you like my card and will return soon.

See you,




Egy k√∂nnyen √©s gyorsan elk√©sz√≠thetŇĎ k√©peslapot hoztam ma nektek, amit dr√°ga f√©rjecsk√©mnek k√©sz√≠tettem egy reggeli mell√©. Amikor itthon van vel√ľnk, szeretem ŇĎt elk√©nyeztetni √©s √©n k√©sz√≠tem neki a reggelit. Ha van egy extra f√©l √≥r√°m, olyan j√≥ √©rz√©s egy kedves lapot is csin√°lni mell√©, egy apr√≥ √ľzenettel. MindkettŇĎnket boldogg√° tesz, √©n √≠gy fejezem ki mennyire szeretem ŇĎt √©s milyen h√°l√°s vagyok neki minden√©rt.

20160816_190814 wm

Sz√≥val a lapom v√°zlat√°t egy online kurzuson l√°ttam, √©s egyszerŇĪnek tŇĪnt egy reggeli gyors laphoz. Egy sz√ľrke kartont v√°gtam egy sz√©lv√°g√≥val, hogy olyan legyen mint egy spir√°lf√ľzetbŇĎl kit√©pett lap. Egy k√©z√≠r√°sos h√°tt√©rb√©lyegzŇĎvel pecs√©teltem mint√°t r√° s√∂t√©tsz√ľrke tint√°val. A fŇĎ panelemet feh√©r kartonb√≥l v√°gtam, egyik kedvenc MFT nyomdak√©szletembŇĎl pecs√©teltem r√° a Hello love feliratot majd egy sz√≠vecsk√©s stencilt tettem r√° √©s stencilecset seg√≠ts√©g√©vel piros tint√°t vittem fel. A felirat k√∂rny√©k√©n csak nagyon halv√°nyan, a sz√©leken erŇĎsebben, t√∂bb r√©tegben vittem fel a tint√°t. Egy gyors sz√≠nez√©s alkoholos Shinhan Touch markerrel, egy kis Wink of Stella Clear Pen a csill√°mos hat√°s√©rt, majd glossy accent a 3D csillog√°s√©rt. Miut√°n √∂sszeragasztottam a r√©tegeket, egy vonalz√≥val √©s feh√©r zsel√©s tollal szaggatott vonalakat h√ļztam a jobb sz√©lre. Apr√≥ tr√ľkk, amit a kurzuson tanultam, de olyan sokat sz√°m√≠t.

Remélem tetszik a lapom és inspiráltalak.

Hamarosan √ļjra jelentkezem.




Waving hello

Hello again,

Another quick interactive card, which I made for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Summer Fun¬†and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Make for the border a few days ago, just didn’t have time to post.

20160821_151752 wm.jpg

I used only Lawn Fawn products for this card: dies, stamps and even the BG paper is from LF, my all time favourite.

I die cut the stitched panel from the Stitched Journaling set 2 times from watercolour paper. I added some Tumbled glass distress ink on one of them for the sky, and stamped my sentiment in black ink from the Mermaid for you set. From the other panel I die cut 2 wavy panel with the Waves Border dies and added Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint sketch distress inks to them. The edges I emphasized with Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen. I used the same border die to cut the tiny white waves too.

20160821_151851 wm

The narwhal is from the Mermaid for you set, coloured with Zig markers. I added a lot of shimmer to it with the Spectrum Noir pen.

The interactive part is that the tail of the nerwhal is waving as we move the card. It is done by using a slider die behind the first wavy panel (Lawn Fawn die).

20160821_151922 wm

I embellished the card with only one little heart gem and when it was all assembled I stamped some birds from the Lawn Fawn Life is good stamp set. When I took the pics, I realized that I stamped them upside down….did you notice? Ups¬†;)

I hope you like it.

Fun summer card with stencil & cheap IKEA brushes

Happy Monday morning,

The weather in Budapest really turned autumn-like, so bad, I cannot accept that summer is over. Not yet. So I am here to share some still very summery cards with you in my next posts.

20160821_152031 wm

This card was heavily inspired by Stephanie Klauck from the MFT Design Team, I saw an interactive card she made with the same stamp set a while ago. I just had to try it myself.

First of all, I have a big piece of heavy weight paper I use for photo shooting, which gave me the inspiration for the background. I took a stencil from Neat and Tangled and applied some blue ink with a cheap Ikea brush for kids. It is not as smooth as the Clarity stencil brushes, but gives an interesting result. I shifted my stencil and applied some greenish ink again the same way. And voil√°, my water background is done.

20160821_152146 wm

I stamped and coloured the girl and accessories from MFT Fun in the sun on Bristol Smooth paper and coloured with Zig markers. I fussy cut them out, added some shimmer with Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and some glossy accents. I die cut a stitched rectangle frame from Lawn Fawn from white cardstock, the smile Mama Elephant die from some recycled packaging 2 times and layered them on top of each other. I stamped the rest of the sentiment in the bottom corner of my pool BG from Lawn Fawn Life is good.

20160821_152110 wm

In the middle of my BG panel I die cut a slider slot (Lawn Fawn dies) and assembled my card so that the little girl can slide with the matrass.

¬†I wanna join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Summer fun, as always in the last momentūüėÄ

Floral bouquet without colouring


Today is a special post, dedicated to my beloved sister-in-law. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ENAS, I love you so much!

20160816_191118 wm

I saw a card by Dawn Woleslagle (the owner of WPLUS9) on Youtube and it inspired me so much that I bought the stamp set Summer blooms. I wanted to replicate the card she made but with a slightly different layout and different sentiment. This is the original by Dawn:

Project design by Dawn Woleslagle.  Also Featured: Sending, Hoping, Wishing die.

I took a strip of white cardstock (3,5×5,5) and stamped my floral bouquet with colourful inks (SSS and Hero Arts). When the stamping was done, I die cut the Wishing sentiment from a WPLUS9 die set from black cardstock and glued it on my panel. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Wishes stamp set from WPLUS9, stamped in purple ink. I added a bit of shimmer with my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and a few clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh.

20160816_191136 wm

I placed a black/white striped washi tape along the edge of a white notecard and I matted a thin strip of pink cardstock under my panel before gluing it on the card base.

20160816_191215_001 wm

That is my card for today, I hope you like it. Of course the original is the best, but I wanted to try to give it a bit more different look.

See you soon again,


MFT Camp Create Day 5 – Stunning Shadow stamping

Hello again,

This is my second post for today as I was afraid to miss the deadline for the Camp Create submission. This card is my take on the Day 5 task: shadow stamping. I will admit, this was the most difficult of all the tasks as I didn’t really have nice big solid stamps from MFT which is needed for this technique. I had to be creativeūüėÄ

I used the Spring tulips stamp set in the end.

20160814_174727 wm

Fist of all, I die cut my focal panel from light grey cardstock with a stitched rectangle die, and I traced the inside of a stitched oval die with a pencil onto my panel where I wanted my sentiment. I stamped the biggest solid tulip from the stamp set with white pigment ink all around the traced oval, then I took the guava ink from Lawn Fawn for the shadow stamping and stamped over the white tulips slightly off-set. Finally I took the smallest tulip from the set and stamped in the middle of each big tulip with chili pepper red ink. I let it dry a bit and I die cut the oval I traced before. After treating both my panels with an antistatic powder tool, I stamped my sentiment from the Rainbow set with Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. On the outer panel I just added dots with a Versamark pen and also heat embossed in gold.

20160814_174807_001 wm

I mounted it on a dark red card base with 3D foam tape and glued the inside oval with liquid glue to have more dimension. A couple of matching mini sequins with a gold/white pearl in the middle in each corner finished off this simple card.

20160814_174927 wm.jpg

I hope you enjoyed last week’s posts, it was so much fun to be in the online camp.

See you soon with another project,




Ez ma a m√°sodik bejegyz√©sem, mert nem akartam lek√©sni a hat√°ridŇĎt az MFT Camp Create 5.napj√°ra. A feladat √°rny√©k-pecs√©tel√©s volt, ez volt sz√°momra a legnehezebb feladat, mert nagy, teli nyomda kell¬†ehhez a technik√°hoz. Kreat√≠vnak¬†kellett lennem, v√©g√ľl a Spring Tulip nyomdaszettben tal√°ltam pici szolid mint√°t, ami mŇĪk√∂d√∂tt. √ćme a lapom:

20160814_174727 wm

ElŇĎsz√∂r is egy vil√°gos sz√ľrke √∂lt√©smint√°s t√©glalapot v√°gtam sablonnal, majd erre helyeztem egy szint√©n √∂lt√©smint√°s ov√°lis sablont, amit belsŇĎ √≠v√©n ceruz√°val k√∂rberajzoltam. Ezt az √≠vet k√∂vetve pecs√©teltem a legnagyobb tulip√°nt feh√©r pigment tint√°val v√©gig k√∂rbe, majd egy picit eltolva √ļjra pecs√©teltem mindegyiket guava sz√≠nŇĪ tint√°val. V√©g√ľl mindegyik k√∂zep√©be egy bord√≥ tint√°val a legkisebb tulip√°nt pecs√©teltem. Kicsit hagytam sz√°radni, majd az ov√°lis sablont visszaillesztve a ceruz√°s √≠vre √°ttekertem a Big Shot-on. Egy antisztatikus p√°rn√°csk√°val √°tsim√≠tottam mindk√©t panelt, majd Versamark tint√°val pecs√©teltem a feliratot √©s arany porral hŇĎdombor√≠tottam. A k√ľls√∂ √≠ven Versamark tollal p√∂tty√∂ztem √©s szint√©n arannyal dombor√≠tottam.

3D ragazst√≥val r√∂gz√≠tettem a k√ľlsŇĎ panelt egy bord√≥ k√©peslap alapra, majd sima foly√©kony ragaszt√≥val az ov√°lis k√∂zepet. A n√©gy sarokba mini flittereket √©s mini gy√∂ngy√∂ket haszn√°ltam d√≠sz√≠t√©sk√©nt.

Rem√©lem tetszettek a m√ļlt heti lapjaim √©s tov√°bbra is velem tartotok. B√°r a t√°bornak v√©ge, tov√°bbra is rendszeresen jelentkezem mindenf√©le kreat√≠v √∂tlettel.

Ha tetszik a blogom, iratkozzatok fel, hogy semmirŇĎl ne maradjatok le. A kommenteket is sz√≠vesen veszemūüėČ




MFT Camp Create Bonfire – Single layer savvy

Hello again,

Although¬†I made my card for the¬†last evening for the camp¬†fire¬†(oh how I loved that as a kid in real camps), I didn’t manage to edit the pics and write my post¬†:D The task was to create a single layer card. This is mine:

20160814_155506 wm

I made this card for someone for an occasion, and I was sure I wanted to use the Recipe for happiness stamp set from MFT. I die cut a white panel with a stitched rectangle die from Blueprint 25 and made a mask first using the Because die and masking paper. I stamped the rest of my sentiment under the masked area along with several kitchen utensils with MFT Black Licorice hybrid ink. I masked off the stitches with painter’s tape and I made masks using a full sticky post it note for all my stamped images and applied Tumbled glass distress ink with a sponge dauber.

20160814_155649 wm

After removing the masks, I coloured the images with Shinhan alcohol markers. I added some clear shimmer to some of them, white dots with a Faber-Castell Pitt Brush Pen and glossy accents on some details and the pots/pans.

20160814_155535 wm

As it is a one layer card, I didn’t want to embellish it further, I just added some red-white twine with a bow and that is it.

20160814_155701 wm

I hope you like it.

See you in my next post for the last homework for the camp.






Kicsit megk√©sve de posztolom: utols√≥ este a t√°borban, t√°bortŇĪzzel √©s extra feladattal k√ľl√∂n nyerem√©ny√©rt (r√©szletek itt). Egy r√©tegŇĪ k√©peslap k√©sz√≠t√©se a feladat, √≠me az eny√©m:

20160814_155253 wm

ElŇĎsz√∂r is egy feh√©r kartont k√©peslap m√©retŇĪre v√°gtam egy √∂lt√©smint√°s v√°g√≥sablonnal. Post-it-et haszn√°lva maszkot k√©sz√≠tettem a felirat v√°g√≥ sablonnal √©s felragasztottam a h√°tteremre. A felirat t√∂bbi r√©sz√©t √©s egyik kedvenc MFT nyomdak√©szletembŇĎl (Recipe for Happiness)¬†a konyhai kieg√©sz√≠tŇĎket fekete hybrid tint√°val pecs√©teltem, majd mindegyik konyhai eszk√∂zh√∂z post-it-bŇĎl maszkot k√©sz√≠tettem √©s¬†letakartam vel√ľk az eredeti k√©peket. Egy szivacsos applik√°torral¬†vil√°gosk√©k distress tint√°t vittem fel a h√°tt√©rre. A maszkokat levettem, √©s Shinhan alkoholos filcekkel sz√≠neztem a k√©peket. Egy kis csill√°mos toll, feh√©r p√∂tty√∂k a l√°bosokra, √©s j√≥ sok glossy accent fejezte be a lapot. Nem akartam t√ļld√≠sz√≠teni √©s megt√∂rni az egys√≠k√ļs√°got nagyon, ez√©rt cask egy kis p√©kzsineggel d√≠sz√≠tettem a bal oldalt.

Remélem tetszik és visszanéztek hamarosan az utolsó házi feladat kapcsán.

Addig is √ľdv,
