Aunt Betty [Teta Beta]

Inspired by Besida/Inspirirana Besidom

Today I have two really different cards. Recently I had a great time with my fellow crafter Adrijana. During our talk we came up with an interesting idea. Since our styles and techniques are so different we thought it would be cool that I try and make a card like she usually does and vice versa. Before you take a look at my cards let me just tell you that each of her card is like a little painting. She loves colors and sparkly things. Please, do not judge her work by my card. Visit her blog or Facebook page and look for yourself those beautiful cards. I have to be honest and say that I am not very pleased with my work. It was not so easy to make a card Inspired by Besida. She has all these colors and powders, and my cards always have a couple of patterned papers, lace, ribbon, and other cute and girly things. So rarely I will color my paper from scratch like I did with this one.

[Danas imam dvije zaista drugačiju karte. Nedavno sam imala prilike uživati u društvu moje prijateljice Adrijane. Tijekom razgovora došle smo do zanimljive ideje. Budući da su naši stilovi i tehnike u izradi čestitki toliko drugačije, učinilo nam se zgodnim da ja pokušam napraviti kartu inspiriranu njenim radom i obratno. Prije nego pogledate moje karte, želim samo reći kako je svaka njena karta prava mala slika. Ona voli boje i sjajne stvarčice. Molim vas, nemojte suditi njen rad po ovim mojim kartama. Posjetite njen blog ili Facebook stranicu i sami se uvjerite u njenu kreativnost. Moram biti iskrena i reći kako baš nisam zadovoljna svojim radom. Nije bilo lako napraviti kartu inspiriranu Besidom. Ona ima sve te boje i prahove, a moje karte uvijek imaju po nekoliko papira s uzorkom, čipku, traku i ostale slatke stvarčice tipične za curke. Zaista rijetko bojam svoj papir u potpunosti kao što sam to napravila ovaj puta.]

To make this card I colored my paper with brown and pink ink. I added some stamps: Teta Beta and my favorite Basic Grey stamp. I also added some Viva Decor dots, used my markers to additionally embellish the flowers, heat embossed the sentiment and added some brads, distressed the edges and colored them with some black ink. At the end I added some ribbon and a button on the top of the card.

[Znači, da bih napravila ovu kartu obojala sam papir smeđom i rozom tintom. Zatim sam dodala nekoliko štambilja: Teta Beta i moj najdraži od Basic Grey. Dodala sam točkice uz pomoć Viva Decor pena, a da bih dodatno ukrasila cvjetiće koristila sam svoje flomiće. Za sentiment sam koristila svoj jedini prah za embosanja i toplinski pištolj, a sve sam dodatno ukrasila s malo sjajnih kamenčića. Izrulila sam rubove i obojala ih crnom tintom. Na kraju sam dodala malo trakice i gumbić na vrh karte.]

Adrijana (Besida) made such a lovely card. It is a true combination of her style and mine. She loves simplicity so she did not use patterned papers. She made a cute card with a big bow and my favorite Teta Beta stamp.

[Adrijana (Besida) je napravila zbilja krasnu kartu. To je prava kombinacija njenog i mog stila. Ona voli jednostavnost pa nije koristila papire s uzorkom. Napravila je zaista slatku kartu s lijepom mašnom i mojim omiljenim Teta Beta štambiljem.]

For the additional inspiration/help I also used these two challenges [Za dodatnu inspiraciju/pomoć koristila sam i ova dva natječaja]: Color ThrowdownBasic Grey.

Materials I used [Popis materijala]:  Basic Grey stampTeta Beta stamp, ribbon, brads, button, Viva Decor pen, black, brown and pink ink, white embossing powder, heat tool.

And this is the second card. It probably presents her work better. [A ovo je druga karta. Mislim da malo bolje predstavlja njen rad.]

For the additional inspiration/help I also used this challenge [Za dodatnu inspiraciju/pomoć koristila sam i ovaj natječaj]: The Play Date Cafe.

Materials I used [Popis materijala]:  black and white paper, blue and yellow gel pens, printed sentiment and two brads.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed our little challenge.🙂 [Pa, nadam se da ste uživali u ovom postu.]

  1. Super su!❤

    Nadam se da ti je bilo zabavno i da ćeš češće malo bojati sad kad si vidjela da nije strašno! :))))

    Bolje si ti uhvatila moj mot nego ja tvoj.😮

  2. Neat CAS card, Eli! It reminds me of a Van Gogh painting.

    Thanks for playing with us at The Cafe this week!
