Watering can and flowers

Let me show you my latest creation, a card with a watering can and flowers. For this challenge, I used one of my previous projects as an inspiration. This was a canvas with the same watering can and wildflowers.

But instead of the wildflowers, here I used the Funky Florals 1 from Tim Holtz.

First I made brick walls through a stencil with big grains texture paste. I glued a green stipe to the bottom, then  I covered it with embossing ink and added Ranger Distress Peeled Paint embossing powder.

Here you can see, how it looked before the embossing.

What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Funky Florals 1 by Tim Holtz 

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Script Friendship Words by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Thinlits Die, Garden Greens by Tim Holtz

Sizzix Bigz Die, Watering Can by Tim Holtz

Card with wine blueprints by Tim Holtz

I have a friend whose husband loves wine. But he not just loves them he knows them, he is quite an expert. So lately he started his own business, selling fine Hungarian wines in Luxembourg. The name of his online shop: BOROMIDD (it means: drink my wine!).

So I made a card for him:

Do what you love, love what you do - this is really him.

Now, this should be the place of a detailed tutorial, but this time you can find it on the Country View Crafts blog.

PaperArtsy flowers on kraft paper

This card was made for the PaperArtsy challenge: Kraft card.

I cut out a rectangle with a Sizzix Framelits die, then I stamped the flowers of PaperArtsy Eclectica EEG16 by Emma Godfrey with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.

Then I started to colour them with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

First I added the Light Flesh and the Light Purple Pink.

After I blended darker colours (Fuchsia, Magenta) but I also used the lighter colours.

The text strip was added with foam tape adhesive.

I hope you like! Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

Tea time in London

During the Easter holiday, we had been in London for 8 days. And since the weather was awful (rain, rain, rain) we took to drinking tea. We really loved the Whittard of Chelsea Tea Bar at the Covent Garden.

With this card, I would like to remember those lovely moments.

The background paper was painted blue with DecoArt Spa Blue and after drying I toned it down with a little white. 

I stamped the London images with Ranger Archival Shadow Grey. 

With Schmincke ink pen I doodled white border lines onto the grey basic card and onto the blue top.

I added remnant rub-on sticker words on the cups: life, moments.

All the edges were inked with Ranger Distress Ground Expresso.

With my card, I would like to join the Simon Says Monday Challenge: Lets Doodle

Mother's Day card with 3D roses

On the first Sunday of May, we celebrate the mothers in Hungary. I made this card for my "anyu" (mom in Hungarian).

For the wall, I used a texture paste with big grains. After drying I made the walls dirty with watered grey paint. I inked the card edges with Shadow Grey Archival ink. 

The roses were made in advance.

Wedding card with cake by Brenda Walton

After two weeks holiday, I'm home again! First, we went to Hungary by car to be with our family in Hungary. After 3 days we left our dog, Rozi at my parents and we flew to London for 8 days. Despite the horrible weather - every day we had rain and/or shower - we had a lot of fun there. Then we flew back to take back Rozi and to vote on Sunday in the parliamentary election which was a big disappointment for us - I mean the result. 

But life goes on! And for today I have brought here a card to share with you.

My hubby's colleague asked me to make a wedding card one of her friends' wedding. I made two versions and from them, they liked and chose this one:

I used First Edition The Promise papers. The cake was cut out with Sizzix Bigz Die, Layered Cake by Brenda Walton (658357). With X-Cut Corner Punch, I rounded the top of the cakes.

I inked the edges of every cut-out with Ranger Distress Pumice Stone ink.

The text is from the My Favorite Things, Essential Sentiments stamp set and it was heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

I hope you like it! From now on, I will post more often!
