Simple flower card


here's a very simple flower card:

For the background  I embossed a cream cardstock from  core'dinations. To give life to the pattern, I used different colors of chalk. The main embellishment is a 3D punched flower.

Card size: 10x15 cm

Wedding cards / Felicitari - Invitatii nunta


I found a very cute wedding stamp from Stamperia. Here are two cards I made using it.
They can be used as wedding invitations too.

 Card size: 13x13 cm
 Card size: 10x15 cm

For the background I used a pale pink table napkin transferred on freezer paper. I made The 3D frame from the firs card using some nested dies from Sizzix, following a tutorial from youtube (unfortunatelly, I can not find it any more..I wanted so much to share it here).

Delft blue card / Flori in albastru de Delft


Some time ago I found a paper napkin that perfectly resembled a Delft blue carried me back two years ago, when I visited this beautiful town...:)
So, I transferred the napkin onto freezer paper to give it a bit more strength, and then started with the card design.
Here's how the card turned out:

To accentuate the flowers, I used some small quilled swirls to make the corners.

Card size: 13.5x13.5 cm

Update -  Here's another variation of the same card:

Card size: 13x13 cm

Butterflies and flowers / Fluturi si flori


When I saw this Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6PK w/Stamps in the crafts store this weekend, I had to have it...:)
And, of course, I started experimenting with the die cuts and the stamps. Here's one of the cards:

The center flower is one of the Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die - Medallions designed by Brenda Walton for Sizzix.
The blended background  is done with chalks.

Elegant teabag folding flower card / Felicitare cu floare in tehnica "teabag folding"


this weekend, searching through the card making  elements I made some time ago and haven't had the chance to use them, I found some teabag folding flowers. I decided on using two of them. Here's the card I made with the first:

For me this card has the feel of old memories brought to light from an old dusty box from grandma's attic...:) Well, maybe that's just me...what do you think?

Card size: 13.5x13.5 cm

Inimioare vintage / Vintage hearts card


I know that Valentine's day is long passed, but I finally had an idea on how to use some little hearts I cut with some die cuts from Sizzix, just to see how they look like.

The burgundy heart is made from Core'dinations cardstock. This type of cardstock is layered, so, when sanding it, the white layer from underneath comes out, creating a great effect especially on embossed elements.

Felicitare cupcake / Cupcake birthday card


This new cupcake birthday card started with a very cute napkin I found one day at my favorite crafts shop...:)
I used only the top layer of the napkin, which I transferred on freezer paper (maybe I will make a tutorial for this technique at some point) . 

Most of the embellishments come from Daco Art ...the new lace they have is sooo prety...:)

Card size: 14x14 cm
