Violet Hydrangea Flowers

Hello dear friends!

I know, I haven't been posted anything for a while but today I'll fix this out. I was invited to be a part of an amazing and very talented DT of 14 Craft Bar

Huge THANK YOU to Agnieszka Barska and Agnieszka Betkowsaka for involving me in this new adventure. Dear ladies, I'll do my best, I promise :-)  

So my first post is dedicated to my favourite activity to make flowers. Flower making is my passion. I love creating foamiran flowers, paper flowers and lately I am exploring different techniques of making silk flowers. 

For some of the flowers you can see below I've used Lady E Design - Hydrangea, cutting die set which I love working with. 

I hope that my flowers will inspire you to create many beautiful projects.













Thank you for stopping by.
Wish you happy crafting!

Hugs,
Elena xx

A feminine card

Happy Christmas Everyone!

Despite the festive atmosphere and as a rest of the permanent celebration with friends and relatives I had another play with Becca's beautiful dies and would love to show you my last creation as a Guest Designer in her blog, Amazing Paper Grace.

I certainly love all Becca's die collections and when I work with them I feel filled with inspiration. 
To make this gentle card this time I used Shapeabilities Tiara Rondelle Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.




I played with already my beloved Shapeabilities Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken to make a new bunch of gentle fluffy flowers which embellished my card.




Some other elements I have used are a white gentle piece of lace, silk ribbon, a silver button and, cream sequins and a garland of pale pink flower cut-outs.







Here you can see a detailed photo of frosty glitter that I used on the Tiara Rondelle die cut.


Thank you for stopping by again!
I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Hugs,

Wedding Envelope

Hi everyone!

Elena is here.

Every Christmas Eve brings with it hushed anticipation and wonder. 
In this magical time of the year, I have my 3rd Guest Designer project for the Amazing Paper Grace Blog prepared for you.
Here is my winter white and cream wedding envelope made using Shapeabilities Bella Clair Border Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken. This cutting die is so beautiful and absolutely perfect for dimensional layered projects. I love this gently curved net. It gives such tenderness and elegance to the projects.



The flowers and leaves that you can see were made out of white foamiran using Shapeabilities Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken.



The paper set I have used to make the wedding envelope is ''The Rose Avenue'', Studio 75 pl. It is one of my favourite Polish paper collections for wedding projects.












I hope you like my new creation and would love to see your comments here :-)

Wish you all the most wonderful Christmas ever!

Hugs,

Christmas Cottage House Boxes

Hi, my dear friends!

Elena is here again :-) 

I have my 2nd Amazing Paper Grace, Guest Designer project ready for you.
This time I have used Shapeabilities Charming Cottage Box Etched Dies A Charming Christmas Collection by Becca Feeken to make this enchanting set of two house-shaped boxes suitable for small precious Christmas gifts.



I made the bases from heavy kraft cardstock and for the upper parts, I have used the Stamperia, Pink Christmas 12 x 12 paper collection.




The boxes were embellished with handmade flowers in a pale pink and a pale blue colour palette. To make them I used other Spellbinders by Becca Feeken die set, Shapeabilities Cinch &Go IV Cut Emboss Flowers.



You know me, I love experimenting so this time I made my flowers out of a plastic vinyl clear sheet, painted with acrylic and dusted with frosting powder.



Cotton wool string, silver ribbon, bleached roots, mini frosty cones, sparkly sequins, mini berries, glitter branches and silver bells complemented the whole vision of my project.


I also made garlands with Christmas stars, gingerbread man and Christmas trees which compleated the festive atmosphere. 







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

Red Christmas Poinsettias

Hello dear friends!

Elena is here.

It is my turn to show you something inspirational.
My flowers this time are bright, sparkly and definitely noticeable.
They were made of red and orange foamiran, coloured with oil pastels Mungyo and dusted with gold glitter. 




For the centres, I have used a mix of different stamens, mini golden, frosted and foam ones.
I also used sequins to highlight them and to gain a WOW effect.



I think with the flowers like those any Christmas project will be captivating.










There are some examples of how I used the flowers I made:






I hope you like my Christmas Poinsettias.

Have a wonderful week!

Christmas 3D card

Hi, my dear friends!

There’s no time of year that’s better for working on a sparkly project than Christmas and the holiday season, is there? Whether it’s a gift for someone or a craft or a decoration, it’s fun to create at Christmas.

There is something magical to immerse yourself in the Christmas atmosphere creating something you love.
That was the feeling when I have started playing with a Grand Dome - Elegant 3D Card by Becca Feeken.

This is the first of my 4 projects made as a guest designer for the Amazing Paper Grace Blog this month.





To make this sparkly project I have used a Mintay scrapbook paper pad, The Sweetest Christmas 12 x 12 collection. It is full of lovely cutouts suitable for any Christmas projects.  




To embellish my 3D cards I have made a Christmas Poinsettia, this time not from foamiran but from vellum paper. It is my first try working with this material and I am really pleased because my flower looks frozen and light.






Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful crafty week!
Hugs, 
Elena

Flowers for cards

Hello friends!

Elena is here.
Christmas is fast approaching and it is high time I showed something festive.

There is a bunch of pale pink poinsettias and mini blossoms made of apple white foamiran and coloured with TURY acrylic paint.

It was so delightful to open the box with the Christmas stuff in it and to turn my cosy craft room on a Santa's workshop with sparkly glitter everywhere.













Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful crafty week!
Hugs,
Elena
