Birthday card with a lot of masking


Today I brought you a card that I made for the Paper Smooches Friendship Challenge. As always I am literally in the last minute with this, I have to change my crafting habits ūüėÄ

20160829_224716 wm

I wanted to make a fun card using the Chubby chums stamp set and the birthday bash stamp set. I stamped the middle muffin on a strip of white cardstock then masked it off with a mask I made from post-it note and stamped another two muffins. I masked those the same way and stamped the cat behind, masked it off also an stamped the cluster of balloons together with another two single balloons. I put masks on these too and applied light blue ink through an MFT stencil to make the background a bit more interesting.

I coloured my images with Shinhan alcohol markers, went through my images with a black multiliner to make them pop. I added some shimmer with the Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, and black glaze pen on the eyes of the cat.

20160829_212040 wm

I die cut the celebrate word from a pretty metallic black cardstock, and using the negative of the die cut, I glued it to the front panel. The rest of the sentiment is from an MFT set, stamped in SSS Maliblue ink several times to make it darker. A little paw print from the Chubby chums set finished off the sentiment. I added black glaze pen to this to make it pop.

20160829_212057 wm

I added a strip of Doodlebug patterned paper on a top folding notecard, and a black metallic and silver metallic thin strip of cardstock to my front panel, which I mounted on the card base using foam tape.

As a final touch I covered all the balloons with a generous amount of glossy accent.

Funny birthday card with Lawn Fawn

Hello again,

I am back with a fishy card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Go Fish.

20160706_161324 wm

I made my background on a piece of white cardstock using a stencil and Lawn Fawn inks (I saw this colour combo on Pinterest a while ago and wanted to try). I die cut my panel with a stitched rectangle die and stamped the sentiment (SSS Best fishes stamp set) in one of the colourful stripes. I stamped the fish tank from Lawn Fawn Tank you and filled with the accessories and fish from the same set. I coloured everything with Shinhan alcohol markers, and cut it with the coordinating die.

20160706_161257 wm

I also used some mini heart die cuts I had laying around, I coloured them with Shinhan markers too and glued them around my sentiment.

20160706_161306 wm

I popped up the fish tank with 3D foam squares. A bit of Wink of Stella clear shimmer and glossy accent here and there finished it off. I used a mint green stitched rectangle mat for my focal panel.

I hope you like it and will play along with SSS Monday Challenge, there is still a day for submissions.

Sea you soon,




Egy halas sz√ľlinapi lapot mutatok ma nektek, amit egy amerikai kih√≠v√°sra k√©sz√≠tettem (r√©szletek fent). T√∂k√©letes fi√ļknak, kicsiknek √©s nagyoknak egyar√°nt.

20160706_161324 wm

Egy stencil √©s szivacsos applik√°tor¬†seg√≠ts√©g√©vel k√©k √©s z√∂ld tint√°kkal √°tmenetes h√°tteret k√©sz√≠tettem, majd egy √∂lt√©smint√°s v√°g√≥sablonnal m√©retre v√°gtam. A vicces feliratot az egyik sz√≠nes cs√≠kba pecs√©teltem. Az akv√°riumot √©s a kieg√©sz√≠tŇĎket (Lawn Fawn Tank you k√©szlet) feh√©r pap√≠rra nyomd√°ztam, Shinhan alkoholos filcekkel sz√≠neztem, majd kiv√°gtam √©s 3D ragaszt√≥kock√°kkal felragasztottam. Volt p√°r mini sz√≠vem kiv√°gva, azokat is besz√≠neztem Shinhan filcekkel √©s a felirat k√∂r√© ragasztottam.¬†Egy mentaz√∂ld (Aldi karton-szett) √∂lt√©smint√°s al√°t√©ttel emeltem ki¬†a sz√≠neket, v√©g√ľl egy kis csill√°m √©s glossy accent, √©s k√©sz is.

Remélem tetszik és inspiráltalak.

Nemsok√°ra √ļjra jelentkezem,



Goodbye card by building a scene


Today is a sad day, my husband had to leave for his month long shift at work. Our life is about frequent goodbyes and welcomes, which has a lot of advantages too, but it is tough on the other side. Every time my love travels, I put my feelings in a card for him. This is what I made this time:

20160827_205203 wm

I used a Clearly Besotted stamp set Deer to me. I immediately fell in love with the little deer images and I stamped 4 of them to represent our family. I coloured all my scene building elements with Shinhan alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I took some patterned paper from MFT and Doodlebug for the background using a stitched hillside border die from Lawn Fawn. I also die cut a postage stamp frame from Avery Elle from wood paper (Altenew) and from white cardstock and glued them together.

20160827_205043 wm

20160827_205105 wm

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant stamped directly on the background with black ink. I love to combine different brands on my cards. It really matched the scene and my feelings.

20160827_205024 wm

After gluing everything down on a white card base, I added some accents: black glaze pen on the eyes and noses, clear shimmer on the flowers and some glossy accent.

That is it, I wish you like it and will return soon.





A mai egy szomor√ļ nap, mert¬† a f√©rjem elutazott dolgozni. Az √©let√ľnk folyamatosan¬†a f√°j√≥ b√ļcs√ļz√°sr√≥l √©s √∂r√∂mteli viszontl√°t√°sokr√≥l sz√≥l, minden elŇĎny√©vel √©s h√°tr√°ny√°val egy√ľtt. J√≥ is, meg rossz is, most √©ppen nagyon rossz. Minden h√≥napban mielŇĎtt elutazik, k√©sz√≠tek egy k√©peslapot, √≠gy jobban ki tudom fejezni az √©rz√©seimet √©s egy darabk√°t el tud vinni √≠gy belŇĎlem. Ezt k√©sz√≠tettem neki m√°ra:

20160827_205203 wm

Egy Clearly Besotted nyomdak√©szletet haszn√°ltam, mert a kis ŇĎzik√©k a csal√°dunkra eml√©keztettek. Fekete tint√°val pecs√©teltem, Shinhan alkoholos filcekkel sz√≠neztem, majd kiv√°gtam a hozz√°tartoz√≥ v√°g√≥sablonokkal. H√°tt√©rnek enyh√©n mint√°s pap√≠rokat v√°lasztottam, a keretet (Avery Elle) pedig k√©tszer v√°gtam ki: feh√©r √©s fa hat√°s√ļ (Altenew, de Pippin√©l is van/volt hasonl√≥) kartonb√≥l, majd √∂sszeragasztottam ŇĎket.

A felirat egy Mama Elephant szettbŇĎl sz√°rmazik, nagyon illett a hangulatomhoz.

Miután mindent felragasztottam egy fehér képeslap alapra, jöhettek a kiemelések: fekete glaze pen a szemekre és az orrocskákra, egy kis csillám a virágokra, majd pár pötty glossy accent.

K√©sz is. Am√≠g sz√≠neztem √©s alkottam, a sz√≠vem kicsit megk√∂nnyebb√ľlt. Rem√©lem tetszik √©s hamarosan √ļjra l√°tlak!





Happy Birthday RANA!

Special post for my beloved niece, Rana, for her birthday: My dearest, enjoy your day and have a blast! I hope you like this card, made especially for you, with all my heart ūüėÄ

20160826_155348 wm

I cut a piece of Doodlebug patterned paper to be exactly A2 size. I flipped the remaining of the paper and from the back side of it die cut a stitched banner (MFT). I stamped my sentiment on it with black ink, both sentiments are from a small SSS stamp set. I die cut the Lawn Fawn Smile die from a beautiful black metallic paper, and a cross stitched circle from vellum.

20160826_155430 wm

I stamped the little koala bear from Reverse Confetti on white cardstock and coloured with Shinhan alcohol markers. I die cut it with the coordinating dies, added some black glaze pen to the eyes, some shimmer with Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to the flower and a coat of glossy accents on the cute pinky nose of the koala and the flower he is holding.

20160826_155412 wm

20160826_155404 wm

I glued everything down making sure that the vellum panel has glue only on the areas where the image will cover it anyways. I added shimmer and glossy accent to the happy birthday sentiment too, plus 3 Doodlebug enamel dots.

I hope you like this cute card, and will see you soon.





Quick card for HIM


I am popping in to show you a quick card which can be done in like half an hour (I am not a fast crafter) for the men in our lives. Masculine cards are a big big challenge for me, I am lucky as my husband loves whatever I give him, even if it is pinky ūüėÄ But I do try to stretch my boundaries.

20160825_170222 wm

For this little notecard, I die cut a kraft card base 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. I used the largest stitched square die in the SSS set from a pretty patterned paper with glittery and glossy hearts on it. The focal element on my card is made with a die from Penny Black and I used a wonderful rubbery feel thick luxury red cardstock (I got it from a friend of mine as a gift, it is so pretty). It really feels like velvet paper. I glued everything with liquid glue.

20160825_170235 wm

20160825_170253 wm

Actually I made 3 cards to have on hand when I need to, but I ran out of the kraft cardstock, so I made 2 white card bases and added a kraft layer on top to look like it is all kraft. Little trick when I don’t have enough of the required colour.

Very simple card, perfect for a love note for our beloved ones. I am entering this card set to the SSS Wednesday Challenge It’s Hip to be Square.

I hope you like it and will return again soon for more inspiration.

See you,




Csak beugrottam egy k√∂nnyen elk√©sz√≠thetŇĎ pasis lappal. Sz√°momra nem k√∂nnyŇĪ feladat igaz√°n f√©rfias lapot k√©sz√≠teni, de pr√≥b√°lkozom. Olyan szerencs√©s vagyok, hogy a f√©rjem minden lapot √©rt√©kel, m√©g ha r√≥zsasz√≠nŇĪ is ūüėČ

20160825_170222 wm

ElŇĎsz√∂r is egy kraft kartonb√≥l elk√©sz√≠tettem a k√©peslap alapomat (4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch), majd egy √∂lt√©smint√°s n√©gyzet v√°g√≥k√©ssel egy Lidl-ben vett pap√≠rk√©szlet barn√°s-sz√≠ves mint√°j√ļ pap√≠rj√°t v√°gtam m√©retre. A f√≥kuszban egy Penny Black v√°g√≥k√©ssel v√°gott panel less, amit egy kedves ismerŇĎs√∂mtŇĎl kapott piros kartonb√≥l v√°gtam. Ez egy nagyon k√ľl√∂nleges, gumis bevonat√ļ karton, gy√∂ny√∂rŇĪ a sz√≠ne √©s tapint√°sra selymesen matt hat√°s√ļ, mintha b√°rsonypap√≠r lenne. Foly√©kony ragaszt√≥val mindent felragasztottam, bel√ľlre pedig egy feh√©r n√©gyzetet v√°gtam a m√°r haszn√°lt sablonnal, az √ľzenetnek.

Igaz√°b√≥l 3 kis lapot k√©sz√≠tettem, de elfogyott a kraft kartonom, √≠gy egy kis tr√ľkk√∂t alkalmaztam. Feh√©r k√©peslap alapra ragasztottam egy kraft n√©gyzetet, ami pont betakarta az eg√©sz elŇĎlapot. Erre ker√ľlt a mint√°s pap√≠r √©s a piros kiv√°gat.

EgyszerŇĪ diz√°jn, hamar k√©szen van, √©s t√∂k√©letes egy gyors szerelmes √ľzenethez.

Rem√©lem tetszik ūüôā






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.

20160814_175017 wm

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.

20160814_175117 wm

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 rain ūüôā We made a little enamel heart together with Nuvo Drops, it is embellishing the little girl’s hair.

20160814_175050 wm

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

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.


Zsofi &  Jana



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,

Zsófi és Jana


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 way ūüôā

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 note ūüôā

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.
