Wedding Remake – Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

I am popping in today with a card I made in the last minute for Mona Toth’s Lawn Fawn Wedding Challenge on Instagram. She is my crafty best friends and I could not resist playing along. This is my card:

And this is the inspiration I used: a collage I created when we moved in our home in Budapest. It is hanging in our bedroom ever since.

All stamps and dies I used for this card are from Lawn Fawn. I started with creating the little white Stitched rectangles to hold the wedding pics. I used the partial die cutting technique to cut them shorter. Then I stamped the images on each from the following sets using some masking: Bicycle built for you, Screen Time and Mermaid for you. I used a Memento marker to alter the images a little and then I coloured them with Copic markers.

As I was veiled at my wedding day I used the hair of the original characters as the veil. I had a lot of fun trying to give them a different look.

For the background I used woodgrain cardstock and applied Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide with a blending brush. It really resembles our wallpaper which I used as the background of our original frame.

The sentiment I cut form black sparkle cardstock using the Cole’s ABC die set.

After assembling the card, I added little embellishments: silver metallic leaves (Stitched Flower Frame) and little dark grey flowers (Scalloped Treat Box Springhouse Add-on). I added tiny little white pearls in the middle.

As a final touch I used a clear shimmer pen on the veil and glossy accents on the belt. Isn’t it cute?

I hope you enjoyed my wedding remake and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.

See you soon,


Masculine birthday – Heffy Doodle

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle. Are you struggling with masculine cards? I admit I do, mostly because I love bling and sparkle and somehow it just does not fit the concept of a guy card. Today I show you a way how you can still have texture and shine, without making a card glittery and “for her”.

I started with stamping the cake and a couple of candles from the Popping by stamp set, coloured them with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinting dies. I die cut a Stitched Oval from a textured white cardstock and popped up the cake with the candles using the thick 3D foam tape from the Heffy Doodle Essentials line. It gives so much dimension, I love it!

For the background I used the Lots of Happy stencil on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with Gatherd Twigs Distress Oxide ink. As this ink stays wet for a while, I simply heat embossed the pattern with clear embossing powder. It gives just a little shine, not too much. Then I cut down the panel a little and ink blended a bit of the same brown ink on the sides using a blending brush. It makes the focal panel pop even more!

For the sentiment I chose the Wavy banner dies and Wavy Banner Sentiments: I stamped with a brown ink on a Neenah Desert Storm banner and matted it with a slightly bigger brown one. I used the same brown cardstock to mat the stenciled background too.

After popping up the banner with the thick 3D foam tape I added just a light touch of clear shimmer to the flame and covered the candles and chocolate drops with glossy accents.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Perfect Combo and will check back later for more inspiration. If you like my cards, please make sure to follow me on Instagram where I also share my happy creations! Thank you!

See you soon,


Retirement Sale Project for Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

It is a bittersweet week at Newton’s Nook Designs as our wonderful team features retiting products for the next couple of days. I have some of my favourites on the list too, which is always sad, but it also means that some lovely new designs are coming soon! YAY! Just stay tuned!

Newton’s Nook Designs is having a retiring sale on their website. These designs are available at up to 40% off while supplies last so hurry to get your favorites before they’re gone for good! 

For my card today I used the beautiful Tropical Fish stencil and the Narly Mermaids stamp/die set. I stamped the images on alcohol ink friendly cardstock with black hybrid ink and coloured the images with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.

For the exact colours I made a little chart for you. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Then I worked on the background: on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I ink blended Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I used a gentle hand and blending brushes for a subtle look. Then I sprinkled it with water, let it sit for 30 sec and dried it with a paper towel.

I secured the stencil with Pixie Spray on the inked background and used the same colours over it just with a heavier hand. Before Removing the stencil I added Moda Scrap Gloss Glitter gel with a Stencil Pal. It gives a wonderful raised and pearlescent look when it is dry! Gorgeous!

While the background was drying I cut a 1,75 * 4,25 inches white strip and stamped 2 sentiments in the middle.

I popped up the narwhal, the star and the mermaid with 3D foam squares and used extra dimension for the shell too. The little fish I adhered with a drop of liquid glue.

As a finishing touch I added glossy accents to the pearl and dot details and used a black glaze pen on the eyes.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Make sure to check the NND blog daily for more fun projects from my teamies. And don’t forget, if you like any of the products on the retiring list, act fast as when they are gone, they are gone for good!

“Sea you soon”,


Happy Eid!

Hello Everyone,

Ramadan has come to its end and today all muslims in the world started celebrating Eid al Fitr, which is a 3 days long feast with great food, special cookies and most of all – happy family gatherings. Unfortunately we are living far from our muslim relatives, but I wanted to wish all of my muslim family members and friends a blessed Eid. If I could have one wish only, I would ask for world peace. A world where people of different religions and ethnics can live peacefully together, where everyone tries to see the good in the others and not look for the evil. My heart is sad for all muslims who cannot live and enjoy the feast in peace.

Last year I bought the beautiful Decorative Hamsa from Simon Says Stamp and I was looking forward to putting it on a card. So I die cut it from gold sparkle cardstock which I previously backed with Stick It adhesive: as it is an intricate die, I felt it was going to be easier to adhere it this way.

I die cut a vellum circle with the Simon Says Stamp Circle dies and adhered the golden die cut.

For the background I used several Alcohol Inks from Ranger: Bottle, Clover, Limeade, Meadow, Pistachio and Citrus. I usually use Yupo paper but today I tried the Ranger glossy cardstock which was meant to be used with alcohol inks. It worked so well with the Blending solution and the inks. I used an air blower to move the ink. It dried super fast but until it was still tacky, I added some golden foil. I simply rubbed it over the sticky parts, so easy and beautiful!

When it was all dry, I die cut the panel with an A2 Stitched rectangle die from MFT and assembled the card.

I white heat embossed a sentiment from Altenew Eid Greeings stamp set on a thin black cardstock strip and adhered it to the card. As a finishing touch I used a green rhinestone in the middle of the eye.

I hope you like my inspiration for today and will come back soon for more!

See you,


To my Homeschool hero!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle.

Even though my kids are back to normal school now, they had an intense 1.5 months of homeschooling due to Covid. I wasn’t easy for them as they are still small, but they handled it well and I am so proud of them. This inspired the card I am going to show you today. I mixed some of the new release products for this cutie. Let’s dive in the details!

First I stamped and coloured the images from the Pandtastic Painters stamp set using my Neutral Grey Copic markers. Colouring black and white images really relax me as I don’t think about which colours go well with each other. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then I used the DL Stitched Slimline Trio dies to cut 3 rectangles, one big from blue cardstock and 3 smaller ones: a white, darker and lighter purple. I wanted a fun multiple window design, so I die cut the DL windows from the dark purple rectangle and some Stithced Stars from the lighter purple layer. I used my Misti to help me with the alignment of the stars. When I had the stars windows too, I placed the white rectangle under the window panel and stamped 3 star shaped messages in the middle of each using the Homeschool Hero stamp set and Catherine Pooler purple ink.

I heat set the ink and very carefully coloured the stars with a blue marker. I assembled the multiple windows panel using thin 3D foam tape and covered the stars with glossy accents. Until it was drying I white heat embossed 2 other sentiments from the Homeschool Hero set on black cardstock, trimmed them down to be small banners and added them under the pandas before securing them on the card.

As a finishing touch I used a tiny drop of glossy accents on the pandas’ noses and my card was all finished! I cannot wait to make this design in different colours too, so cute!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Perfect Combo and will check back later for more inspiration. If you like my cards, please make sure to follow me on Instagram where I also share my happy creations! Thank you!

Stencilled flowers for Mom – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone,

I am back again with my last Mother’s Day card this year dedicating this one to ALL supermoms out there. Being a mother is the biggest blessing and the best gift which comes with an emotional extra package (expanding with the years). I am grateful every single day to have my kids and experiencing the unconditional love which I feel for them and they feel for me.

For my card today I used the pretty Peonies stencil from Pretty Pink Posh: on a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock I inkblended Kitch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink for the flowers first. I simply turned the stencil around and masked off the leaves with post it tape to make sure I dont accidentaly go over the unnecessary open areas.

When I was happy with the arrangemet of the flowers I created masks for them from Masking Paper and covered each flower. Now it was time to add leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink. After removing the masks I added some splatters with my Finetec Mica Pearlescent Watercolours, I chose the dark pink and black this time.

When the panel was dry I cut it down a bit and added a vivid green mat under it. I also die cut a skinny gold frame with my old favourite Frames die set from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered it i place with drops of liquid glue. I usually use Ranger Multi Matte Medium with a precision tip for this.

The sentiment I die cut from pink cardstock with the Pretty Pink Posh Mother’s Day die. I added a white heat embossed “happy” on a tiny piece of black cardstock to it using 3D foam squares.

As a finishing touch I added dots with a black glaze pen to the flower centers, it makes them really pop!

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Feminine and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Favourite Technique (stenciling is also a favourite technique of mine).

I hope you enjoyed this floral inspiration and will pop in again soon for more cheerful designs.

See you,


Bunny with flowers – Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Everyone,

While I am waiting for the new release from Pretty Pink Posh to arrive, I was playing with some of my favourites from the previous ones. I have created a cute card with Bunny Friends and Mother’s Day stamp sets.

First I stamped the images and coloured them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. I made sure to have some extra little flowers and leaves to make the bouquets even bigger. We can never have too many flowers for Mom, right?

I die cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die from MFT. It is an old favourite of mine, adds the perfect amount of detail to any project. I adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card which I previously covered with a rainbow striped patterned paper from Doodlebug design.

I assembled my little scene and popped up the bunny with 3D foam squares. I covered the vases with glossy accents, it gives a lovely shiy and raised look, I love it! I also used a black glaze pen on the flower centres.

For the sentiment I chose the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Mother’s Day Script die and die cut the Happy part 3 times from pink cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered it under the bunny.

The rest of the sentiment I white heat embossed on a very thin piece of black cardstock. The sentiment is from the Heffy Doodle Classic sentiments set. I used 3D foam squares under it to stand out more.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Feminine and to the Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge Favourite Technique (“rainbow everything” is a technique right?)

I hope you enjoyed this cute little inspiration and will pop in again for more cheerful designs.

See you,


Heartfelt wishes for Mother’s Day – Newton’s Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

It is my turn today on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog and as Mother’s Day is approaching fast, I thought I would show you a pretty garden scene card for the occasion.

I started with stamping and colouring the Bleeding Hearts with Copic markers. I went with bright pinks this time with a vivid green combo for the leaves. I made 2 flowers and a few extra flower heads. I cut everything out with the coordinating dies.

To the bottom of a white top folding card base I adhered an inch wide patterned paper piece. Then I die cut grass from green cardstock using the Land border die. While I was at die cutting I also cut a Fence from white cardstock.

Before assembling the scene I did a little ink blending in the middle of the card base: a bit of Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink with a very light hand and a blending brush.

Above the scene I stamped part of the sentiment from the Bleeding Hearts set in black and adorned it with the extra flower heads. I also stamped a sentiment from the Mom&Dad set on a pink rounded banner (Banner Trio die set) and popped it up to the bottom of the card with thin 3D foam tape.

The only embellishment I used this time was tiny drops of glossy accents on the white parts of the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will pop in again soon.

See you,


Happy Mother’s Day to my mom!

Hello Everyone,

Today is Mother’s Day in Hungary and I am always very sentimental about it. I am very close to my mum and even though I try to show her love and care on a daily basis, we always make something extra with my kids on this day. We got her roses and tulips, the kids sang and my daughter recited a lovely poem. She even made a very pretty card for her, and my son – who just learnt how to write – wrote her a letter. So touchy. As a cardmaker I had to make my own card too.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from the SSS Bouquet for mom set using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers.

I have made a colour swatch for the colours I used. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

For the background I used the Sizzix Texture Fades Brickwork 3D embossing folder. It is amazing! I used it on Bristol Smooth cardstock because I wanted to do some ink blending after: I used Hickory Smoke and Black Sooth Distress Oxide inks. I also added some black and white splatters ad dried it with my heat tool.

I used the Newton’s Nook Designs Land border dies to cut some grass and the Fence die to cut the fence, and assembled the scene. I used 3D foam squares behind the main image to get more dimension.

The setiment I white heat embossed on black cardstock and die cut it with its coordinating die. I love sets when there is a die for the sentiment, it gives such a unique look!

As a finishing touch I used glossy accents on the flower centres and the body of the butterflies.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes and the SSS Ig Challenge Favourite Technique too.

I hope you liked my card and will pop in again soon for more inspiration.
