Black & white challenge


Today I am showing you a card that I made for Mother’s Day too. I love colour and almost all my cards are really colourful. But this time – in order to try myself in a PS challenge – I made a black and white card with a little pink.

First, I stenciled black stripes on a white cardstock with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink. Then I ran this through my Big Shot machine with an A2 sized stitched rectangle die and a decorative tag die from Paper Smooches (oh I love this die, so feminine). I die cut one of the dainty flowers from Paper Smooches from pink cardstock and attached the outline image to my tag. For the sentiment I used the “wonderful” word die from PS Kudos words set and stamped the “you are” from the spreading sunshine stamp set.

I popped up the tag with black fun foam which I de cut with the same tag die. I finished the card with some pink and clear sequins from my stash and some glossy accent on the top of the flower.


I am playing along with the Paper Smooches April Challenge: Black and white with a pop of colour.

I hope you like it and will return soon for more inspiration for the upcoming Mother’s Day.

See you,




Egy újabb kísérlet Anyák Napjára, ezúttal fekete-fehérben próbáltam ki magam egy kihívás kedvéért (ld fent).

Fekete tintával vastag csíkokat stencileztem egy fehér kartonra, amit utána egy öltésmintás téglalap vágókéssel vágtam méretre. Ennek a közepéből vágtam ki egy dekoratív tag-et. A virágot pink kartonból vágtam és ragasztottam a tag közepére. A feliratot fehér kartonból vágtam. A tag-et kivágtam még egyszer fekete dekorgumiból, és ezzel emeltem ki a háttérből. Egy-két flitter és egy kis glossy accent a virág közepére, és már kész is 🙂 Remélem tetszik. A vágókések nagy része Paper Smooches.



Die cut Mother’s Day card


It has been so long since my last blog post. I was busy crafting but no time remained for blogging. As Mother’s Day is in a week in Hungary, I felt I need to post a card I made for my beloved mum (Mum, please forget that you saw this..)

20160424_163757 (2)

I wanted to use the little flowers die from SSS, I just love how small they are. I die cut a heart on a piece of polka dot paper and placed the little flowers in 3 colours all the way the heart outline. I heat embossed a Hero Arts sentiment on a piece of woodgrain cardstock with silver embossing powder and die cut the Lawn Fawn script mom die 3 times: 2 from plain heavy weight cardstock and once from the same woodgrain cardstock I used for my sentiment.

To embellish the flowers I used some pearls from our local hobby store (Rayher): silver, white and glass. I love how the light reflects on those little pearls, like a little jewel.


I wish my mum will like it, I made it with all my heart 🙂

I would like to sign this project for the SSS Wednesday Challenge, Make it girlie.

I will be back soon with another project for Mother’s Day, I promise.



Masked birthday card with Penny Black stamps

Happy Monday,

Today I am popping in with a very quick post. I made this card for a little girl who lives in Finland, so it will have a long journey. Not to get ruined in the mail, I tried to keep it simple.

20160407_170225 (2)

I used a stamp set from Penny Black to stamp the dog and duckie with the balloons on white cardstock which I previously die cut with SSS Stitched rectangles die. Then I coloured the images with alcohol markers and masked them. I die cut some clouds from masking paper with a Penny Black clouds die, placed them on my scene and sponged the background with Tumbled glass distress ink. I die cut 2 cloudy borders, one white and one vellum, layered them and glued them to my scene. I stamped my sentiments from some other stamp sets on the white layer with Lawn Fawn lobster ink and SSS Intense Black ink. By the way I use the latter to stamp my images too, it is alcohol marker friendly.

As a final touch – as always – I added some shimmer and glossy accents to the balloons and some of the details of the images, black gel pen for the eyes and some PPP Clear sequins. I also went over the “Hooray” with a red Sakura glitter pen.


I usually don’t, but this time I dressed up the card from inside too: another puppy pic and a SSS sentiment stamped in teal made a real difference.

I hope you like it and the recipient will also.

This card I am entering the SSS Happy Birthday Wednesday Challenge, it is my 3rd entry.

Cool card for a cool day

Hello again,

I am so grateful to my minis that they allowed me yesterday to finish my penguin card. I wanted to use the Birthday Waddles stamps and dies since I got it few weeks ago from Your Next Stamp. Finally I had the chance, here is my card.


I made a balloon stenciled background a while ago with distress inks (cracked pistachio and pine needles if I remember well), which was perfect for this card. I die cut a stitched oval in the middle, popped it up with foam tape and placed an embossed vellum in the cut out place to add some texture. I coloured my penguin and balloons with Shinhan alcohol markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I also die cut white fun foam with the penguin die and glued my image on top, to support my image when adding to the vellum. I love the look and in this way I don’t have to be afraid that the balloon string would bend or get torn. If I had time I would have done the same with the other 2 balloons too, but for this card I just glued them on the balloony frame. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on an orangish stitched fishtail banner and I die cut an extra from yellow cardstock too. My card base today is dark green to match the balloon background.


Here is a close up on the shine on the balloons, which I got using glossy accents and clear wink of stella.


I would like to enter this card in 2 challenges:

Paper piecing birthday card

Happy Saturday! 🙂

Having 2 small kids weekends are not about sleeping long, but at least I cannot complain about lack of little ones are really active and love to wake up early to prolong the playing time.

The card I want to share today was inspired by my daughter, she loves balloons and loves flowers and really looks like the girl in this SSS stamp set (Lila’s Heart). I wanted something dimensional yet simple, so here is what I made.


First I stamped and coloured the girl  and 3 balloons with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating dies. I stamped the girl on patterned paper once more, fussy cut the dress and glued on top of the original one. I die cut all my elements from white fun foam to add dimension. I just found it easier than gluing with foam tape and I really like the look of the whole images popped up. I added some details with a white gel pen, some shimmer with wink of stella clear glitter pen and of course a ton of glossy accent.


Before adhering my images on a piece of white cardstock, I sponged some cracked pistachio distress ink as a shadow where I wanted my girl and balloons. As I wanted the Happy Birthday sign to be in Hungarian, I printed the panel first (I really wish to have Hungarian sentiments in different sizes and fonts..).


Then I put the card together, starting with a little strip of the same patterned paper as I used for the dress, then a little scalloped border cut from glitter cardstock o make it even more girlish and soft. To “land” the girl, I used a thin strip of teal cardstock which matched the patterned paper. For the balloon strings I used a very thin metal thread from DMC.

I hope you like it. I am entering this card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge.Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Remélem kellemesen telik a  szombat. Nálunk nem a lustizásról szól, a két kis manóm nagyon szeret minél többet kihozni a napból, már ha játékról van szó. De legalább nem unatkozom 🙂 Ma is egy szülinapi lapot hoztam, amit a kislányom inspirált: imádja a lufikat, a viragokat és nagyon hasonlít a SSS Lila’s Heart nyomdakészletben levő kislányra. Szerettem volna valami egyszerűt, de színeset és 3D-set alkotni. Ez lett belőle.

2016-04-09 16.50.16

A kislányt és 3 lufit fehér papírra pecsételtem, kivágtam a hozzá tartozó vágókésekkel és alkoholos filcekkel színeztem. A kislány ruháját virágmintás papírra pecsételtem és kivágtam, majd felragasztottam az eredeti képre. Fehér zselés tollal, egy kis csillámos Wink of Stella tollal és jó sok Glossy Accent-tel tettem egyedivé a képeket. Fehér dekorgumiból is kivágtam a mintákat, így tettem 3 dimenzióssá könnyedén a képeket. Mielőtt ezeket felragasztottam volna a felirattal nyomtatott hátteremre, egy kis Cracked Pistachio distress tintát vittem fel árnyék gyanánt oda, ahova a lányt és a lufikat képzeltem. A lufik zsinórjaként ezüst cérnát használtam. A képeslap aljára egy mintás papírcsíkot ragasztottam, ezt egy csillámos papírból vágott hullám bordűr követte, majd a kislány labia alá egy vékony türkiz csíkot tettem.

Remélem tetszik nektek is.



Happy Birthday card with digital stamps

Hello again,

Today’s post is about digital stamps – still. I must admit that I enjoy stamping and die cutting the most in paper crafting, but I cannot have enough of Elena’s illustrations, so I had to use the cute sheep image again. This time I created a birthday card.

20160327_162554-1 (2)

First of all I had to make the images smaller in order to fit 3 of them on my card front. I wanted the sheep to look like as they are hanging over the fence. I inserted my “we wish you a happy birthday” message in Hungarian in the tabs they are holding. After printing them, I coloured the images with alcohol markers and I fussy cut them out. To correct the imperfections, I used a black marker on the edges, which also helped my images to pop.


To create the scene I used distress inks for the sky and grass on watercolor paper. I also added some water splatters and dried them with a paper towel for more texture. I did the same for the die cut grass borders. For the fence, I used woodgrain paper for die cutting. I love the stitched details, so I had to add some stitching to the background (Avery Elle Wonky stitches die) and to the clouds too (Lawn Fawn Spring showers). And of course I cannot make any cards without using glossy accents (for the nose of the sheep) and black glaze pen (for the eyes of the sheep).

I hope you like my card and you will return for some more inspiration soon.





Ma ismét egy digitalis nyomdával készült lapot mutatnék nektek, amit egy szülinap alkalmából készítettem. Nem tudok betelni Elena illusztrációival 😀 (

Először is a képeket lekicsinyítettem, és a kis táblákba beillesztettem a magyar feliratot. A képeket kinyomtattam, alkoholos filccel kiszíneztem majd kivágtam. Sajnos nem vagyok valami pontos vágó, ezért a kisebb hibákat úgy próbáltam eltűntetni, hogy egy fekete ecsetfilccel áthúztam a körvonalakat. Ezáltal a báránykák még hangsúlyosabbak lettek.

A hátteret és a füvet distress tintával készítettem akvarell papíron, a kerítést pedig fahatású dombornyomott papírból vágtam. Nagyon szeretem az öltésmintát, ezért a hátteret egy Avery Elle Wonky Stitches vágókéssel vágtam ki, a felhőket pedig egy Lawn Fawn szettel (Spring showers). Végezetül a báránykák orrát glossy accent-tel,  a szemeiket pedig fekete glaze pen-nel hangsúlyoztam.

Remélem tetszik a képeslap, és hamarosan újra visszatértek egy kis inspirációért 😉

Addig is üdv,
