Felicitare / invitatie botez baietel / Baby boy card


recently I made a "new baby" card inspired by an image I saw in the Etsy shop of PinkGemDesigns (thanks for the idea! ). I hand drawn the baby sleeping on a quarter moon, and colored it with Copics. It is part of a gift for a colleague who's baby boy is due these days!

 Lets hope the childbirth will go smooth... and easy :) and we will see the baby soon...can't wait!

Felicitare "Fetita cu cartea" / Girl reading stories card


It is a rainy and cold day in Timisoara...Autumn is finally here, so what could be better than a cup of hot coffee to get the day started...Mine begins with this post...:)
Yesterday, while browsing through a one of the Copic coloring books from Annie's Attic, I found a card with a little girl reading a book before going to bed.
Here's my version of this card:

I hand drawn the image and then colored it with COPIC markers.
I still have to work on the shading to make it more realistic, this is just the first version...:)

Felicitare "Precious Moments" / Precious Moments card

Hello all,

 I rediscovered recently the "Precious Moments" characters while browsing for some new digi stamps. The official site is:, but there are many sites that offer free images with these very cute small children with eyes like tear drops. I remember that when I was a kid, I had two posters with them on the walls of my room.
I couldn't resist and I downloaded some from here:
Here's the card I made with it:

Others will come soon! :)
The image is colored with COPIC markers.

Felicitare art deco / Art Deco card

Hello all,

I just received my new book "Iris folding" by Michelle Powell, so now I can't stop making cards from it...:) Here's the first was part of a birthday gift for a friend.

For the background of the flower I used some COPIC markers, and as accent for the contours, some glass paint.

This will be a series, as I intend to make my version of each project...I can't wait to start the next one! :)
Great book!

Felicitare de toamna / Autumn card

Hello all,

After making the Ladybug and pumpkin card, which is a pretty large one, I experimented with the photo I made of it.
The best version was to extract completely the ladybug and the background. In this way it can be used in countless combinations of cardstock and embellishments.
Here's mine:

After printing the image on white cardstock, I used some stamp ink to recreate the vintage look of the backround.

Buburuza se pregateste de toamna / Autumn Ladybug illustration


The ladybug from my previous card decided it was time to prepare for Autumn...:) So, she went looking for clothes to keep her warm. So far, she found a muffler and some old brogues a few sizes bigger...
Here's how she looks like now:

Even so, she still is joyful and happy...and a nice birthday card would be the perfect home for her. If only I would have an idea about what color combination to use...:)
I'll keep you posted!

And here is a warmer version:
