Card set with die cuts


Today I brought you a card design which is easy to re-produce even in bigger quantities in case you want to give it as a gift to someone.


I started with die cutting my background white panels with a stitched rectangle die. I also cut the sketchy tree from shimmery metallic cardstock along with the Christmas word from metallic red cardstock. I glued them in place and using the MISTI I stamped the rest of the sentiment with black ink exactly on the same place on each card.


I glued it all on a striped patterned paper and gave it a red mat. It all went on a white card base, and the only extra embellishment was a star gemstone I glued on the top of the tree.


Fast, easy but due to the layers an special papers it is still a very pretty and nice looking card.


I will upload these to the SSS Monday Challenge O’ Christmas tree and to the SSS Wednesday Challenge Christmas to die for.

Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you soon again here,

Have a lovely day,




Ma egy könnyen elkészíthető és “nagy mennyiségben legyártható” lap szettet hoztam nektek.


Először is fehér kartonból vágtam öltésmintás téglalapokat, majd a fenyőfát metálfényű zöld kartonból, a feliratot pedig pirosból. Minden a helyére ragasztottam, majd a kivágat alá pecsételtem a felirat többi részét. A fehér panelemet egy színes csíkos papírra ragasztottam, majd ez kapott egy piros alátétet mielőtt az egészet egy fehér képeslap alapra rögzítettem volna. Az egyetlen extra díszítés egy pici csillag, amit a fák tetejére tettem.


Köszi, hogy benéztetek, remélem hamarosan újra találkozunk itt.

Addig is szép napot!


Santa Bunny in town


It has been almost a week since my last post, my kids are sick (chicken pox, flu etc) and life got out of normal a bit. But today I am popping in with a cute bunny card for Christmas.


The bunny I coloured a while ago for Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge and I wanted to  put her on a card. The image is from Mama Elephant (Pix’s Holidays) coloured with Shinhan alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen, a black glaze pen, some clear shimmer pen from Spectrum Noir and a Sakura clear glitter pen.


I also added glossy accent on the clothing and the ribbon.


To make the scene for my santa bunny, I die cut a circle from silver metallic cardstock, added a white stitched hillside border for the snow and three iridescent snowflake sequin from Simon Says Stamp. I covered up the glue with tiny white glitter enamel drops.


The sentiment is a die from MFT, cut from velvety red cardstock, glued on a stitched strip of white cardstock. I chose a pretty Lawn Fawn plaid patterned paper for the background which matched the colouring of the bunny.


I will play along with this card in the SSS Monday Challenge Trio-tastic and SSS Wednesday Challenge Christmas to die for.

I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon. I do my best to have more regular posts.

See you,




Sajnálom, hogy mostanában nem volt időm magyar posztokra, remélem azért nem adtátok fel a reményt. Ma egy nyuszi-mikulásos lapot hoztam nektek.


A nyuszit (Mama Elephant) egy amerikai szinezős kihívásra színeztem Shinhan alkoholos filcekkel, a részleteket fehér zselés tollal, Sakura átlátszó csillámos tollal és fekete glaze-pen-nel emeltem ki, na és persze nem tudtam megállni, hogy ne használjak egy jó adag Glossy Accent-et 🙂 A havas háttér megteremtéséhez egy ezüst metal kartonból kört vágtam, erre került egy bordűrvágóval vágott fehér csík hó gyanánt. Három irizáló hópehely flitter teszi még ünepibbé a lapot, aminek a közepébe fehér csillámos epoxy matricát ragasztottam. A feliratot piros bársonyhatású kartonból vágtam, felragasztottam egy fehér öltésmintás karton csíkra. Háttérnek egy szép kék-fehér mintás papírt választottam.


Ha tetszik, amit látsz, kérlek nézz be máskor is.

Hamarosan újra jelentkezm!




Birthday fairy

Hello again,

I just wanted to share a quick post on a card I made for my little daughter’s friend for her birthday.

20161120_083843 wm.jpg

I stamped and coloured the little fairy from Your Next Stamp on white cardstock and die cut with a stitched rectangle. I coloured it with Shinhan alcohol markers, added some clear shimmer with Spectrum Noir pen, some dots with Sakura Clear gel pen and some glossy accent to highlight some details. Then a gave it a dark pink mat.

For the background I choose a pink gingham patterned paper which I die cut with a stitched rectangle die. I added a wide strip from the same dark pink cardstock and I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on a white stitched banner.


I glued everything in place, popped up the focal image with foam tape and as a finishing touch I added 3 white glitter enamel dots.


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

I will play along with the YNS Sketch Challenge #52.

Kitty tags for Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I am back again with some super cute tags for Christmas using Newton’s Nook Designs stamps.


I stamped and coloured the kittie in the box several times and tried different colour combinations just for fun. I added Spectrum Noir clear shimmer and some glossy accents here and there and die cut it with the coordinating die.


For the tag, I die cut a Mama Elephant flag shape from textured white cardstock 2 times and glued them together so it looks neat from the back too. I also cut the topper 2 times from metallic/glitter cardstocks. The Sentiment is from a Hungarian stamp set from Scrapfellow, it says Merry Christmas.


I curved the sentiment to fit the die cut banner, which I cut from matching scrap cardstocks. I also wanted something which looks a bit like pine needles, so I used an MFT greenery die set to cut 2 branches for each tag from metallic green cardstock.


I glues them all in place and popped up the kitties with 3D foam tape. I added some green metallic thread from my stash as a finishing touch.


Colouring the kitties really was a pleasure, I cannot decide which is my favorite. Which one do you like the most?




I am uploading these cuties on the SSS Wednesday Challenge Christmas Critters.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you soon again.

Have a nice day,


Snowman wishes

Hello Crafters,

Today I brought a colourful and happy Christmas card.


I started with choosing the patterned paper (Reverse Confetti) and cut it to fit an A2 card front. I die cut the Paper Smooches Notebook Basic die 3 times: one light grey and 2 white. I wanted to finish die cutting so I cut the PS Merry Christmas die from metallic red cardstock and also 3 snowflakes from the latest SSS release using glitter papers which matched my background colours.


I stamped the snowmen couple from the PS Cool Dudes stamp set on white cardstock and coloured them with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I used a black glaze pen, a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen and glossy accent to emphasize some details. I added also a little gemstone on the hat. Before gluing everything together I used some stitched flourishes from Paper Smooches on the grey Notebook die cut, just to add more interest.


I glued the sentiment on a strip of vellum, which was longer than my cardbase so I could wrap it around and glue it on the back.


I  am playing along with this card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge Christmas critters and also uploading it to the PS Guest Designer Search November.

I hope you like my card and will return soon.

Fast holiday card

Good morning all,

Usually I like to spend time with a card, I enjoy the design and creation process but sometimes I just need something fast and easy. I will show you one today, I made this for the Lawnscaping Challenge #141 Clean and simple.


I took a strip of white cardstock and stamped the string with a bow from the Toboggan together stamp set several times with different length and a merry Christmas sentiment on the bottom in black ink. I die cut a piece of red plaid patterned paper with a stitched scalloped border die and also a strip of blue glitter paper with the picket fence die. I glued pretty gemstones as ornaments in various matching colours and sizes at the end of each string.


I ran a swirly stitched background die on a white cardbase making sure that it will not cut off the folding edge and glued my focal panel on it with 3D foam tape.


Easy, simple but pretty card with little effort – nice combo 🙂

I hope you got inspired and will return soon.

See you,


CAS Merry Christmas card set

Hello Again,

I am popping in today for the second time to show you a couple of cards I made for the Lawnscaping Challenges Clean and Simple Challenge #141.


I wanted to use the plaid paper sets from Lawn Fawn, so I die cut two of them with a stitched rectangle die from SSS along with 2 pieces of white cardstock. I also die cut a smaller rectangle from each to get a nice frame with stitching on both sides. To finish all the die cutting I cut also the Merry word die 4 times from matching metallic cardstocks.



After that I worked on my focal images. I used the Winter Sparrow stamp set and stamped the little birds around my die cut word. On the white rectangles I coloured them with Shinhan alcohol markers, on the patterned ones I just stamped them in black ink. I stamped the birds another 2 times on white cardstock, coloured them the same way and fussy cut them out to be able to piece them back on the patterned rectangles.



When all this was done I stamped the Christmas word from the Merry christmouse set (SSS Stamptember exclusive 2015) in black ink under the die cut sentiment. A bit of Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen and some glossy accent finished them off.


I assembled 2 cards totally flat and another two with fun foam under the focal image. It was an easy and simple design and within short time I ended up with 4 sweet cards.

I hope you like my cards and will pop in again soon,

See you,



Thankful for you

Hello Everyone,

Recently I had some difficulties in managing life and my parents popped in more often than usual to help me out, mostly with babysitting and entertaining my kids. I am forever grateful for everything they do for us, and I felt I need to make a card for them. Here it is.


First I sponged a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with distress inks and splattered it with water from a distress spray. I repeated the process of sponging and water droplets. While my background was drying I took a piece of acetate and using  an Echo park snowflake stencil, I applied white embossing paste on it. I sprinkled it with some fine glitter hoping that it will stay put after drying. Well, a little bit stayed but not all, so next time I will try to do it with embossing powder instead.


I die cut the postage stamp frame from Avery Elle from a special velvety feel white cardstock and glued it on the dry acetate piece. My sentiment is the SSS Thankful die, cut from silver glitter cardstock and the mat from purple vellum (it matched my background so well).


Before assembling it I stamped the “for you” sentiment from an Altenew set on the background and glued everything together.


I will upload this card on the SSS Monday Challenge and  SSS Wednesday Challenge Thanks/Thanksgiving.

I wish you like this winter feel thanks card and will return soon for more inspiration.

See you,


Flurry of thanks


In the US Thanksgiving is coming soon, and although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving as such, there are million things I am grateful for every day. That is why I made this card, matching the winter chill which came early this year to Hungary too. I used the MFT sketch from the Sketch Challenge #306:


First I choose a snowflake patterned paper from Doodlebug and die cut it with SSS stitched rectangle die. Than I die cut and stamped the sweet girl image from MFT Warmest wishes set, and coloured her with Shinhan alcohol markers. I added some clear shimmer with a Spectrum Noir pen and I added some dots to the scarf also with a white gel pen and Sakura stardust glitter pen. I used glossy accent and a bit of white flower soft for the boots and pompoms.


As next step I die cut the thanks word from MFT from metallic dark red cardstock and placing it on a piece of vellum I made  a flag banner mat for it. This determined the size of the dark grey mat for my image and sentiment.


I white heat embossed the sentiment from the same MFT stamp set and die cut a bunch of mini snowflakes from Lawn fawn using white shimmer cardstock. After gluing everything in place, I added a few mini gemstones in the middle of the larger snowflakes.


I wish happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow crafters who celebrate it, wherever they are. If you like this card, please pop in soon again for more inspiration.

I am playing along with the following challenges with this card:





See you,


Shining trees tags


It has been a crazy week an although I was crafting almost every day, I didn’t get to make pics of what I have finished and post them. A lot to catch up with this week 🙂

This weeks challenge on the SSS Monday Challenge blog is Shine Bright like a diamond. I made a few tags for this:


First of all I die cut the base from Bristol smooth cardstock using a wonderful tag die from SSS. I stamped the tree from the new SSS set in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I also stamped the sentiment in Hungarian (YAY, I found one stamp set which has some Hungarian sentiments for Christmas) and heat embossed it too. I used my Misti to make it faster.


Then I coloured the trees with green Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I made it random on the first one, and then realized that it is faster and easier if I colour all the tags at once with the same marker, then change colour. I added a generous amount of Spectrum Noir clear shimmer carefully not to smoosh the colours together when it was all done.


I like to make my tags sturdy, so I die cut the same die from light green cardstock and glued it to the back of the tags. I also die cut a reinforce from some metallic cardstock I have in my stash. I love this one with the liquid platinum embossing powder, they really match nicely in real life. To finish them off, I added some dark green organza ribbon and tied a bow with gold sparkle natural twine.


I wish to show you the other tags I made so far, but I must admit in advance that this is my favourite of all. Hope you like it too.

See you soon,
