One layer card perfect for any smart man around you ;)

September 2016 Inspiration Challenge at Altenew

Hello everyone,
after terribly long time I have found some time to enter Altenew Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration photo for September 2016 was so unique and creative that I knew immediately what I am going to create

Prajem vám všetkým krásny deň,
po dlhšom čase som si opäť našla čas a vytvorila pohľadnicu do challenge. Tentokrát by sa zúčastňujem Septembrovej challenge pre Altenew. Nezvyčajná inšpiratívna fotka mi okamžite vnukla design, ktorý som chcela vytvoriť. 

This is the inspirational photo I was talking about

I loved the playful look and decided to use my Scriblled flowers stamp set by Altenew.  In my opinion the sentiments in this set are amazing and everybody should buy it but don´t forget about the amazing flowers. The scribbled look is perfect for young aged around you.

Here is my card one more time

Products used in this project:
* stamp set -  Scribbled flowers
* striped washi tape and some gemstones

Please be sure to check out the other paper crafters who have entered the challenge HERE .
I hope you like my card and thank you for stopping by

See you soon here again :)

Craft foam 101

Hello everyone,
it´s been a while since I´ve posted something here on my blog. I am so sorry but it´s too busy in my real life.
But I would like to get back in touch with you.
I´d like to share with you my ideas how to use craft foam on your projects.
This tutorial was created for Organizatorka.sk

Prajem vám všetkým krásny deň, 

veci sa v mojom súkromnom živote trošku ukľudnili 
a ja sa plánujem venovať môjmu blogu oveľa viac ;)
 Dnes by som sa chcela podeliť o moje nápady ako využiť penovú gumu vo vašom tvorení. 
Celý článok si môžete prečítat na blogu vintage crafting a nakúpiť u Organizátorka.sk

Usually you buy A4 sheets and I like to cut them into standard card size. 
They are prepared in a rainbow order. 

First of all it´s a great way how to add dimension to your projects. 
Of course it´s better to use small 3D adhesive foam squares or dots. 
If you are planning to glue bigger pieces of paper, than go for a craft foam. 

I like to use double sided adhesive. 

And I love dimension on my card. I could make one-layer cards but I like to pop up my front panel. 

Create your own stamps  

I think this is the coolest thing about fun foam. 
You can create stamp from any die you have in your stash with a Big Shot. 

Simply choose your die, pass it throug the cutting machine. Adhere the die-cut shape on your acrylic block with a double sided adhesive. 

I need to warn you. It might be a little bit messy but you can always  wipe it off with baby wipes. 
As you can see the impresion is perfect. 

I have created my own patterned paper. 
Don´t limit yourself. Don´t use just plain white fun foam. I love to use colorful one. 

Btw. I use every leftover. 

And here is my final card. Even my envelope coordinates. 

Try to look at your new uses for your supplies. 
E.g. this is a wreath die but I use as an abstract shape to create my own background. 

Again everything matches perfectly. This makes my soul very happy. 

Ant here is the final card. 

You can highlight just a detail on your card. 
Die cut just the center piece of your card. 

I love to incorporate coloring in my projects. 
This time color just the small piece.

Love this bold graphic color combination. 

It´s very impressive technique. 


 Combine what you have - use your paper die cuts as well as your DIY foam stamps. 

Watch the photos and you´ll understand what I mean :) 

Fist stamp the flowers and than glue the paper ones. 

Or make just simple stamped wreath with your handmade foam stamps. 

Hope you´ll find this post interesting. 
Let me know in the comments below if you love fun foam as much as I do ;) 

Have an amazing day and see you soon here,
