Still in red and white

My husband's favorite card! He just loves how this card turned out and was telling me to do more like this one.

The only problem was I had only one paper like this left and not in stock at store.

I tried it on a different embossed paper with oval shape in the middle and other kind of flowers. That version sometimes this week, just to take some pictures.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today! Tomorrow the purple version of my bubble embossed card. 

Wish you a wonderful evening!

Purple for a change:)

Admiring Suzana's cards for Mother's Day I remembered I have purple organza ribbon. And thought wow, a break from red and white will be great!

I wished for a long  time to quill this side view of a flower with butterfly, seen on many quilling blogs. But for some reason I was just postponing it. Maybe because I was afraid of not getting the right angle for the flower.

Sorry for the little blurred picture, but I don't have very steady hands sometimes and don't like taking pictures with flash, only if is necessary.

This time I used a paper bead for the ribbon. Is made out of a strip of paper which came out uneven from my paper shredder.

Hope you enjoyed the purple break.
See you tomorrow with a red and white card.

Wish a wonderful day!

Squares and quilled flowers

I love these little punched squares with border and thinking for a long time to put some flowers on them. Now was the perfect time:)

I made this card having in mind a little gift with a ribbon, a red satin ribbon.

Love the combination of these simple flowers, the pale yellow, red and pale pink.

Wish you a wonderful day!

Quilling tulip

I will start with my favorite flower, tulip. I love tulips, but didn't try to quill so many. 

Last year, when I started to quill, I managed to make a few tulips. I feel that is one is more delicate.

The satin ribbon is really beautiful, love it. I used a paper ring instead of gluing the ribbon on card, a ring which you will see on other cards, too, because I like how it turned out.

And a close up of my fragile tulip:) The stems are made with doubled paper.

Wish you a wonderful Saturday!

Martisoare quilling

Hello again! Thank you very much for your visits and kind words! Hope my cards will raised to your expectations:) They are all clean and simple, like I used to make them. But for start my martisoare.

A very, very small part of them! These were the basic models I used: flowers, butterflies, clover and lady bug. I made the flowers and butterflies in different colours. I tell you that loved making those red, tiny flowers, they were my favorites!

Wish you a very creative start of the weekend!
See you tomorrow with my first card!

Busy with spring:)

More than a week of silence on my blog! Busy, busy, busy with spring, like Anca said. I have my first order for martisoare and 8 of March cards! More than 70 martisoare and 50 cards!!! Sounded a little bit scary for me, but hopefully I will manage to get them ready in time.

I think you already know from the Romanian and Bulgarian blogs about the celebration of spring on 1st of March:)

 I found these colorful paper strips very inspirational!

So, I made a lot of rolls for my martisoare and cards. I think they are very handy! Is a lot easier to make my flowers and butterflies having all these prepared! And, to be honest, I just love looking at them, brings my spirits up!

But, please, don't imagine my cards will be so, so colorful! No, most of my orders were for a lot of white and red:) That means a lot of white and red on my blog in the next days.

Wish you a wonderful day!

Happy Valentine's Day 3

My third Valentine's card! For this one the inspiration was Ann Martin's card. Mine didn't came out so simple and elegant, but I love it anyway. The part I don't really like is that I have too much red on it and not different kinds of red:( The little birds are inspired by Azlina's delicate birds. I just love them!

Wish you a wonderful week! Hope you enjoyed my trio:)

Happy Valentine's Day 2

And, as I promised, my second card for today. I can tell you that this was the one chosen:) I love paper lace, but because I have only one type, I was happy to have the opportunity to use it!

Hope you have an amazing Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day

I had a request for one Valentine's card with red, white and hearts on it. But because is always good to have options, even if sometimes becomes difficult to choose, I made three cards. Red, white, hearts.

This is the first one I made. 

I used my hearts stamp, hearts punched with my border punch, because I always save the "leftovers" :) and a computer generated sentiment. The next two cards, a little later today!

Wish you an amazing Valentine's Day!

Another blue card

Even if blue is a colour I am not always comfortable to work with, I love creating cards for our friends. It was the case for my last card and for this one. I made this for a dear friend who is celebrating his 18th birthday today, a very bittersweet age in the book of life!

Happy Birthday, dear friend! Wish you a wonderful life, filled with joy, happiness and  may all your dreams come true!

Wish all a wonderful day!

Aquarius quilled card

Cards for men, always a challenge! So I decided to try the astrological sign for Aquarius. The sentiment is computer generated. Hope you like how it turned out.

Wish you a wonderful weekend!
