Best Wishes/Najljepše želje

In Uncategorized on July 27, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Hi! I am stopping by to share my card I have recently made. It is based on the Colour Q Challenge. I used American Crafts paper and TCM Lovely Labels 14 stamp set (the sentiment is my Croatian stamp – Aunt Betty stamp – that says Best Wishes).

[Pozdrav! Brzinski postam svoju današnju kartu inspiriranu Colour Q natječajem. Koristila sam American Crafts papir i TCM Lovely Lables 14 set štambilja (sentiment pripada jednom mom hrvatskom setu ‘Teta Beta’ štambilja).]

Just for Kids/Samo za djecu

In Uncategorized on July 26, 2012 at 1:46 am

Today I have a special post. We are all very thrilled that the third issue of Croatian Magazine Do!ts is finished. A big group of people contributed and our ladies, Ivona and Martina together with Nebojsa, worked hard so that this issue would look really good.

[Danas imam poseban post. Sretni smo da je izašao treći broj Do!ts časopisa. Bilo je uključeno mnogo suradnika, a Ivona, Martina i Nebojša naporno su radili kako bi ovaj broj izgledao zbilja dobro.]

I did a couple of things for this issue and totally enjoyed it. [Za ovaj broj napravila sam nekoliko stvarčica i zbilja uživala u tome.]

Making cards and decorations for kids is always fun and special. One can really surprise them and make them happy. Recently I made a birthday set for my nephew and you can see it here or here. Now I am learning how to share my work space with him. He is visiting and loves to draw and craft at my desk.

[Izrađivanje karti i dekoracija za djecu je uvijek zabavno i posebno. Djecu se zbilja može iznenaditi i razveseliti. Baš sam nedavno napravila jedan rođendanski set za mog nećaka kojeg možete vidjeti ovdje ili ovdje. A ovih dana učim kako dijeliti svoj kreativni kutak s njim. U posjeti je i zaista voli crtati i stvarati za mojim stolom.]

Today I will share two cards with you that I made a while ago but did not post them. I used my TCM Lovely Labels 14 stamp set. Well, I hope you like the cards and the new issue of Do!ts Magazine.

[Danas ću s vama podijeliti dvije karte koje sam nedavno napravila ali ih još do sada nisam objavila. Koristila sam svoj TCM Lovely Labels 14 set štambilja. Nadam se da vam se sviđaju karte i novi broj Do!ts časopisa.]

Just for you/Samo za tebe

In Uncategorized on July 22, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Hello! Today I have one card for you. I used a set of papers I recently got. They are super cute and more about them you can see at this web site: www.melissafrances.com The colors are soft and so beautiful. And the patterns in the set are just gorgeous. I used Lovely Labels 14 and Ladies and Gents TCM stamps. And the sentiment is one of my stamps in Croatian language (it says ‘Just for you’). I was inspired by the colors at the Play Date Cafe Challenge.

[Pozdrav! Danas imam opet jednu kartu za vas. Koristila sam šarene papire koje sam nedavno dobila. Preslatki su. Više o njima možete vidjeti na ovoj web stranici: www.melissafrances.com Boje su nježne i lijepe, a uzorci su jednostavno prekrasni. Koristila sam Lovely Labels 14 i Ladies and Gents TCM štambilje. Sigurna sam da znate da je sentiment jedan od mojih štambilja na hrvatskom jeziku. Bila sam inspirirana bojama koje su zadane na Play Date Cafe blogu.]

Some more Cards with new TCM stamps/Još malo karti s novim TCM štambiljima

Hello! That was a great release week and a great Blog Hop yesterday! I had so much fun! Well, it would be better (for me) if I had a proper Internet connection at home. Ever since we moved we do not have a phone  and Internet connection in our house so I can do only my basic things using our mobile phone. That is the reason why I do not visit and comment so much on other blogs these last two months. When I upload a card and make my blog post, it is taking me a couple of hours. Sometimes I prepare my text in a document and when I am uploading my pictures  at the same time I would for example make lunch. 🙂 Now, here are my cards I have uploaded while making today’s lunch 😉

[Lijepi pozdrav! Bio je to super tjedan prikazivanja novih TCM štambilja i mislim da smo jučer svi uživali u blog hopu. Meni bi bilo još bolje da imam Internet priključak kod kuće. Otkako smo se preselili nemamo niti priključak niti fiksni telefon, pa sve što trebam obavljam preko mobitela. Zbog toga slabo gledam druge blogove i još slabije komentiram. Kada radim na postu i postavljam slike, sve traje satima. Ponekad pripremam ručak dok stavljam slike na blog. 🙂 Pa, evo moje dvije karte koje sam postavila dok sam spremala današnji ručak. 😉]

The first card is inspired by [Prva karta je inspirirana]:  The Moxie Fab World Challenge – Happy Birthday Cards.

The second card is inspired by [Druga karta je inspirirana]: CAS-ual Fridays, The Moxie Fab World – The Hooked on Hexagons Challenge.

As you can see I have made masculine cards again and played with Lovely Labels 14 and Ladies and Gents TCM stamp sets. On my last card I also used new Spellbinders’ M-bossabilities. I would say these cards are a bit different than those I have made in the last couple of days. Trust me, it is fun and easy to make masculine cards when you have the right stamps and some good papers. Thank you for your visit and all the support!

[Kao što možete vidjeti, opet sam radila karte za muške i koristila Lovely Labels 14 i Ladies and Gents TCM setove. Na posljednjoj karti koristila sam novi Spellbindersov M-bossabilities folder. Rekla bih da su današnje karte malo drugačije od onih koje sam radila u proteklim danima. Zbilja je zabavno i lako raditi ovakve karte kad imate štambilje za to i papire nekih dobrih boja. Hvala vam na posjeti i svoj podršci!]

The Craft’s Meow July Release Blog Hop

In Uncategorized on July 21, 2012 at 4:00 am

Welcome to the Craft’s Meow July Release Blog Hop! 

The day is finally here and you can see some more projects we all have made with new TCM stamps and you can also see the entire sets that are revealed at the TCM blog. We had a great guest designer, Naomi Gong, helping us this month. You had the chance to win some stamps each day, and same goes for today too. To be eligible for the prize today, you need to visit each blog on the list and leave a comment. Visit the TCM blog for some additional informations. And, there is more! If you go and shop over at TCM store, you need to know that with $50 purchase you will get a free stamp set called ‘Summertime with Fibi & Lilly ‘. I made a couple of cards today and I hope you like them. I had so much fun with TCM stamps today and made so much cards that I have some more cards to show tomorrow (the post is already big enough).

[Došao i je i taj dan, posljednji dan prikazivanja novih srpanjskih TCM štambilja. Danas možete vidjeti nove projekte koje smo napravili i izgled setova u potpunosti na TCM blogu. Imali smo super gošću, Naomi Gong, koja nam je pomogla ovaj mjesec. Svaki ste dan mogli osvojiti neke štambilje, a isto vrijedi i danas. Da biste bili u igri za današnju nagradu, posjetite i komentirajte blogove na listi. Posjetite TCM blog za sve dodatne informacije. Ali, ima toga još! Ukoliko se odlučite za neku kupovinu u TCM trgovini, za svaku kupnju od 50$ dobiti ćete besplatan set štambilja pod nazivom ‘Summertime with Fibi and Lilly’. Danas sam napravila nekoliko čestitki. Nadam se da vam se sviđaju. Toliko sam se zabavila s ovim novim štambiljima da sutra imam još nekoliko karti za vas (post je već ionako velik).]

The first card is inspired by [Prva je karta inspirirana]: The Moxie Fab World – Hello Card Challenge.

Here I used my stamp set ‘Ladies and Gents‘ (the top-hat)  to create a pattern, and a sentiment from ‘Sweet Taste of Summer’ set. [Ovdje sam koristila šešir iz mog seta pod imenom ‘Ladies and Gents‘, i sentiment iz seta ‘Sweet Taste of Summer’.]

The second card is inspired by [Druga je karta inspirirana]: Colour Q.

I used parts of ‘Ladies and Gents‘ set (the sentiment, top-hat and the clock) and a small ornament between the top-hat and the sentiment from my ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ set. As you can see I really enjoy making masculine cards with my new ‘Ladies and Gents’ stamp set. I like it so much that I decided to work on another masculine stamp set. 🙂 I have another masculine card, but that one I will post tomorrow.

[Ovdje sam koristila dijelove seta ‘Ladies and Gents‘ (sentiment, šešir i sat) i mali ukras iz mog seta koji je bio predstavljen prošli mjesec pod nazivom ‘Lovely Labels 14‘. Kao što možete vidjeti, sada uživam raditi karte za muške koristeći svoj novi ‘Ladies and Gents’ set štambilja. Toliko mi se sviđa da sam odlučila poraditi na novom setu štambilja samo za takve karte. 🙂  Napravila sam još jednu kartu za muške, ali nju ću postaviti sutra.]

And this is my third card for today inspired by [I na kraju evo moje treće karte za danas koja  je inspirirana s dva izazova]:  Stampin’ Sisters in ChristThe Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. The big stamp is from the ‘Ladies and Gents‘ set, and the sentiment from ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ set. [Suncobran je dio Ladies and Gents‘ seta, a sentiment iz ‘Lovely Labels 14‘ seta. ]

In case you got lost in the Blog Hop, here is the entire list [U slučaju da ste se izgubili u listi blogova, evo cijelog popisa]:

The Craft’s Meow Blog//Amy Tsuruta//Amy Wanford//Iwona Palamountain//Jackie Rockwell//Jean Martin//Jen Cuthbertson//Jessica Fick//Naomi Gong//Elizabeta Kushner//Julie Ranae//Karen Baker//Lindsay Amrhein//Mabelle R-O//Nina Brackett

My name is Elizabeta Kushner, and I thank you for all your love, your visits during these days, and for all the support  you give to me and to the organization ‘The Traveler‘ buying the stamps I have designed (note: all my profit from the stamps I have designed goes towards the non-profit organization ‘The Traveler‘). I hope you will enjoy them!

[Moje je ime Elizabeta Kushner, i zahvaljujem vam na svoj vašoj ljubavi, vašim posjetima ovih dana, i podršci koju dajete meni i Udruzi Putnik kupnjom štambilja koje sam dizajnirala. Nadam se da ćete i sami moći uživati u njima.]

It was a great weekend indeed. I had some rest, finished some projects and had a workshop. It was a first free workshop organized in our home. The ladies were great and I had a wonderful time with them. I took some photos so you can see for yourself (the light is not so good in the room and I really struggled to take some good pictures).

[Bio je ovo super vikend. Malo sam odmarala, završila neke projekte i održala radionicu. Bila je to prva besplatna radionica koju sam organizirala kod kuće (sa ženama). Dame su bile super i bilo mi je prekrasno provesti to vrijeme s njima. Malo sam fotkala pa sami možete vidjeti kako to otprilike izgleda (oprostite na slabijoj kvaliteti slika, no svjetlo u sobi nije baš najbolje pa sam se malo namučila).]

And, at the end of this post, I would like to take the opportunity to post my card I have made today. I was enjoying Waltzingmouse stamps and Spellbinders dies.

[Na kraju posta evo i moje današnje karte. Igrala sam se Waltzingmouse štambiljima i Spellbinders nožićima.]

Well, thank you for stopping by today. I hope you had some good time here.

[Hvala vam da ste navratili danas. Nadam se da vam je posjet bio ugodan.]

Hello! I rested today after work and played with Flourishes stamps. I have made three cards. Two are more simple, I used more white color, and the last one is a bit different. I used Flourishes stamps on each of them, some Want2Scrap Bling and Spellbinders dies. Now, I am off to finish some work and to read my Bible for a while.

[Dobar dan! Danas sam nakon posla malo odmarala i zabavljala se s Flourishes štambiljima. Napravila sam tri karte. Dvije su jednostavnije i na njima sam koristila dosta bijele boje, a treće je nešto drugačija. Na svakoj sam koristila Flourishes štambilje, na dvije Want2Scrap dijamantiće i na jednoj Spellbinders nožiće. Sad bježim završiti neki posao i nastavljam uživati ali ovaj puta čitajući Bibliju.]

A Day in Megacolor Shop plus a Workshop/Dan u Megacoloru plus radionica

In Uncategorized on July 10, 2012 at 11:58 am

Greetings! Today I had much fun decorating this note-book. I saw something similar recently on one of the blogs I follow and realized it would be a great workshop. First I painted it all with white acrylic paint. Then I did some cutting, distressing, coloring with Viva Decor inks and something similar to a decoupage technique. I added some trim and lace, cut a die cut shape using my Spellbinders dies, made the flowers with my first TCM set and did some sewing. I hope you like it!

[Lijepi pozdrav! Danas sam odmarala dekorirajući ovaj notez. Budući da sam idući tjedan poprilično zauzeta, odlučila sam danas imati post vezan za Megacolor trgovinu i radionicu koja će se održati 20. srpnja u 18h u prostorijama te trgovine. Nedavno sam vidjela nešto slično ovom projektu na jednom od blogova koje pratim, i shvatila da bi to bila izvrsna radionica. U Megacoloru možete naći proizvode koje sam koristila: notez, akrilne boje, salvete i decoupage ljepilo. Cijeli notez sam onako “umjetnički” obojala akrilnom bijelom bojom, zatim sam malo rezala, strugala i Vivinim bojama bojala papire. Na radionici ćemo decoupage tehnikom obraditi salvetu. Svoj sam notez dodatno ukrasila Spellbinders oblikom, trimom, čipkom i cvjetićima koje sam napravila uz pomoć svojih TCM štambilja. Nadam se da vam se sviđa. Ukoliko ste zainteresirani za jedno kreativno druženje, posjetite web stranicu Megacolora i prijavite se za radionicu.]

Today I have a somewhat different post and that is mainly because of the products that I used. So, I will first write in English and than switch to Croatian with some addition for all the folks who love to do hand made stuff. I have two cards for you today. The first one is made on the basis of these two lovely challenges: Colour Q and Case Study. I decided to make a fence using my ribbon. And then I stamped my TCM flowers in the back and in the front. For the oval in the back and for the leaves in the front I used Spellbinders Dies. All the pieces of papers (except the leaves) I colored with Viva Decor paper colors. Well, I hope you like the outcome of my work.

The second card is made on the basis of another two great challenges: Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger and Flourishes. You all know how much I love those challenges. They are really a good inspiration for us crafters. For my second card I used a paper doily and made those little flowers using Viva Decor paper colors and Spellbinders Dies (Foliage). I stamped my background with polka dots stamp and leaves with Flourishes stamp. Well, I had a lot of fun. I hope you had it too visiting my blog. Have a great weekend!

[Lijepi pozdrav! Danas imam nešto malo drugačiji post, kao što vidite. Budući da već jedno duže vrijeme uživam u proizvodima Megacolor trgovine, smatrala sam kako je sada pravo vrijeme da vam malo podrobnije napišem nešto o tome. Tako je nastala ideja o postovima pod imenom “Dan u Megacoloru”. Želim vam pokazati što sve nude i kako njihove proizvode možete koristiti za izradu poklona, ukrasa i ostalih detalja koji čine naš život lijepim i zanimljivim. Danas sam odlučila predstaviti liniju boja koje sam u ovom slučaju koristla na papiru (iako su boje dobre i za neke druge površne, no o tome u jednom drugom postu). Moja prva karta je napravljena na temelju dva natječaja: Colour Q i Case Study. Sve, osim lišća, napravljeno je od jednobojnog papira koji je obojan Viva Decor bojama. Cvjetići su napravljeni od mojih TCM štambilja. Boje mi se zbilja sviđaju jer od tamno plave možete dobiti nijanse svjetlijih i tamnijih, ovisno o tome koliko puno boje stavite na papir. Isto tako su super za međusobno stapanje. Npr. da bih dobila neku “prljavu” boju papira od mog čistog ivory papira, stapala (“blendala”) sam jako svijetlu boju “Apricot” sa smeđom. Ove se boje također dobro stapaju s tintama drugih proizvođača, a za sve sam koristila spužvice koje također možete vidjeti dolje na slici.]

[Moja druga karta napravljena je uz pomoć Spellbinders nožića i Vivinih boja. Obojala sam cvjetiće, pozadinu napravila uz pomoć svog štambilja, a listove sam otisnula uz pomoć Flourishes štambilja. Uživancija je i koristiti ove boje. Ova karta je inspirirana Moxie Fab World TT natječajem i Flourishes natječajm. 

Eto, to su Vivine boje koje možete kupiti u Megacolor trgovini. Posjetite njihovu trgovinu u Savskoj 196. Sigurna sam da ćete naći mnogo toga što će vam dobro doći za vaš ručni rad. A ako pak želite, možete se prijaviti i na neku od njihovih radionica i naučiti jednu od mnogih tehnika, a sve što napravite možete ponijeti sa sobom kući.]

I Miss You/Nedostaješ mi

In Uncategorized on July 5, 2012 at 11:40 am

Hello! Today I was playing around with my supplies and some dies a dear friend lent  me, and you probably know that means I have a little different card. 🙂 Different is the best word to describe it. The sentiment says “I Miss You”. I used a little button die to create these small holes, and my TCM stamp for the flower. Well, I am off to listen some lectures and play some more.

[Dobar dan! Danas sam se igrala sa nekim materijalima i nožićima koje mi je posudila draga prijateljica. Sigurna sam da već znate kako to znači da imam nešto drugačiju kartu. 🙂 ‘Drugačija” je zaista dobar opis. Koristila sam nožiće u obliku gumbića da bih napravila ove rupe, a TCM štambiljem sam napravila cvijet. Jurim dalje slušati neka predavanja i još se malo igrati.]

I was looking for a good spot where I can take my photos, and then this came to my mind. 🙂 [Tražila sam neko dobro mjesto gdje bih mogla obaviti fotkanje, i onda mi je ovo palo na pamet. 🙂]

My card is inspired by [Moja karta je inspirirana]: Mojo Monday and Embellish.
