Gentle Shabby Chic Card

Hello everyone!

I was asked to make a shabby chic French style card and Voila ...

Have you ever make a project without giving it too much thought? 

This is one of those kind's of cards that made really quickly, with no forward planning; what sort of paper I need to use, what embellishments and lace etc.

To make the layers I used three different paper sheets of Pion design collection, "Life is Peachy":  "Sweet", "In bloom" and "Borders". 




With the grace and style of the card, I have used only one shabby chic flower made with Zephyr Silk foam, coloured with oil pastels Mungyo.










Thank you for visiting!
Have a wonderful crafty week!
Hugs,

Engagement Explosion Box


Hi Everyone!

It is a miracle of love when you meet your soulmate and realise that you found the person you are destined to spend the rest of your life with together, isn't it?

This explosion box was made to impress a young couple and to remind them of the unforgettable event that happened recently in Roma, Italy.  

 To make it I used some sheets of Pion Design "Seaside Stories" and Reprint "Miss Margit" which you can see in the list below. 



I don't usually combine pale pink and pale blue often but this time had a go and the result is more than impressive. 




As you can see many cutouts and tattered doily die cutting were implemented in it.




This heart pearl rhinestone was an essential embellishment of the project. It has contributed to the sophisticated look of the box.




 A massive amount of pale blue mini foamiran flowers with sparkly glitter centres and foam clusters decorated all the box. 




Thank you for stopping by!
Wish you a wonderful new week!
Hugs,

Window to the garden

Hi, my dear friends!

So many colours around me. 
Autumn is here. 
It is really a very appreciative season. The leaves started to move as if by some divine intervention, ready to travel wherever the wind blows.

This project was dedicated to the Autumn season, so I used the most suitable paper for that, Mintay Farm Life, 12" x 12",  a bunch of mini foamiran flowers in a red, yellow and orange palette and some other items which you can see in the list below. 

I hope, this card will deliver a considerable dose of colourful inspiration.  
















Don't stay at home! Go out and enjoy the last sunny days given by the Indian summer!

Thank you for stopping by and have a colourful crafty week!

Hugs!

Colour Array

Hello dear friends!

Welcome to my beautiful array of rainbow colours. As dark and rain is the day outside as vivid are the colours in my projects. 

Today's card was made from 2 pieces beautiful scrapbook paper from two different sets, Mintay Lovely Day and Pion, Seaside Stories (Summer breeze). I used some cutouts from the first one that stands out perfectly against the baby bluish background.

I added some tiny foamiran flowers which compliment my brightly layered card. 
As nature dictates the bee took centre place. 

 What I have used more, you will see in the list below.




I used 2 types of foamiran to make my flowers, genuine yellow one and organza foam which was coloured with Tury acrylic paint.




            What I have used more, you will see in the list below.





Thank you for visiting!
Have a wonderful crafting!

Sailboat Thank You Card



Hello, my dear friends!

It is my turn to show you something created by me.

Summer is almost gone. The colours are changing outside the window.

Influenced by the beauty of the seaside views I've seen during this summer, I would like to show you another piece of my "Marina" compilation. 

This "Thank you" card was made with papers from the glamorous "Mintay Marina" -12" x 12" collection which is incredibly beautiful with its vibrant colours and adorable details.

You can see my first sea knots trying to tie up the passing summer :-).










Thank you for stopping by!
Wish you a happy crafting!
Hugs!

Blue Mintay Birthday Set

Hi lovely people!

I love, love, love making personalised birthday cards, so my inspiration for you today is this stunning blue set of a card and a wallet, made from a sheet of an adorable 12"x 12" Mintay paper pad. 





All my efforts were focused on making a bright and luxurious project. For that I've implemented the picture in the lace Scrapman die cutting frame, then added some sisal fibers and sprinkled them with art stones.







I embellished my project with light blue flowers, made from silk zephyr foamiran and they matched perfectly with the basic range of the card colours.




Oh, I forgot to mention, something you have probably already noticed because I have used quite often in my projects of late. These are some flowers cut outs which definitely add the final touch of the project.






Here is the inner part of the BD wallet:

Lovely in Mint

Hello lovely people!

 It is a high time showed you my second project made for the Crafteezee blog and published in the Making cards & Papercraft Magazine. There you can learn how to make it.
This card was made from a single sheet Mintay, Lovely day, 12 x 12 paper pad and adorned with my beloved Scrapman die cuts. 
The flower that you can see in the upper left corner was made from Organza foam. It is so delicate and fragile! I love it!








There is the set of two.



Thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
