Stamped around the world blog hop

Hello crafty friends. Long time no see. There are some things happening in my life right now so this is why I’ve been away for such a long time but I will be returning to crafting and blogging soon. For now I want to share with you an exciting thing happening around the world. It’s about Stamped around the World. A great idea that is debuting with a blog hop.

What is Stamped around the World you might ask. Well in short it’s all about crafting and sharing what you craft with other people. In long words here is the story:

As a cardmaker I enjoy making and giving cards away. It is a beautiful way to make someone smile. But how about making cards and sending them away in the mail box? Imagine finding a beautiful envelope through the nasty monthly bills. Nice thought. Well now it’s your chance to make someone’s day better by making a card and sending it. But before you do it, you need to know a few things.

-> don’t write inside the card.This card is meant to travel from a person to another, from a country to another. Instead write your message onto a post it and insert that inside the card.

-> it would be nice to know how many people got the card, so please take a photo with the card before sending it and the next person to do the same step and upload the photo on social media by the following hashtag #stampedaroundtheworld

-> too keep the postage low, create clean and simple cards. One layer should do just fine
Sounds fun right? You are welcome to join this beautiful idea at any time!
Now onto the blog hop.

For this blog hop I have created this card using the Anemone Stamp Set from WPlus9 to create the background. To make the card shine a little I have added some metallic accents using the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from Tonic Studios.

The butterflies are also painted with this gorgeous shades of mousse.

Would you like to win a goodies bag from Tonic Studios? That’s great! All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win a surprise bundle from Tonic Studios. The winner will be announced on Lollyrot Scrapbooking’s blog on 27 May.

Now here is the complete list of participants. If you came here from Ellen than you are right on track. If not, go see her creations and come back for the next stop in the blog hop which is Tonic Studios.

Hello Spring

It looks like Spring is finally here so I thought I would share this card with you today. 

It is a card without much fuss. For it I used the Adore You stamp set from Altenew. I stamped the flowers and leafs onto some watercolor paper and colored them with Derwent pencils.

The hello die is from Simon Says Stamp.

To make the card more interesting I added some Nuvo Drops from Tonic. I received them in a Simon Says Stamp kit and I am very impressed with them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Art of gift giving / Arta de a darui

For today I have for you 3 styles of embellishing a little paper bag. Please see the pictures and if you have any other questions please write them in the comments down below. The rest of the post will be in Romanian.

Se apropie zilele mele preferate din an si cu aceasta ocazie va propun 3 stiluri diferite in care puteti impacheta micul martisor pe care il aveti pregatit. Pentru aceste pungute mici de cadou am folosit produse DACOart. Daca va plac produsele lor puteti sa ii urmariti si pe facebook.

Pentru o punguta romantica am folosit o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), abtibilde cu glitter din setul Fagurele pentru ele (AB013) si am facut o floare folosind Hartie de matase pastel (HR916) si o perlucea (AD183).

Pentru o punguta jucausa am folosit o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), nasturei (AD186) si setul de benzi de hartie Lipeste-ma distractiv (AD209)

Pentru o iubitoare de carti am ales sa decorez o punguta in stil vintage si am folosit  o punguta din setul de pungi de hartie natur (PG005), o bucata de hartie dintr-o carte foarte veche, sfoara din bumbac si dantela. Eu am folosit o dantela din colectia mea de dantele dar gasiti si la cei de la DACO dantele autoadezive pe care le puteti folosi.

Sper ca v-au placut propunerile mele. Duminica minunata sa aveti!

Pom pom coasters

Have you prepared your gift for Valentine’s already? What is it? Can you share? Is it handmade or not? I am looking forward to here your answers.

We don’t celebrate Valentine’s here in Romania but we have our own tradition called “Dragobete”. For this year I have prepared something fun and simple to make. I think handemade gifts are the best. So with no further ado here is my small gift: a pair of pom pom coasters since both me and my hubby are coffee drinkers. 

There were very easy to make. You just need some pom poms, glue and 2 round shapes of heavy card stock.

Hope you enjoyed my little gift and you will give it a try.

Quilled heart / Inima cu tehnica quilling

The love celebration day is approaching very fast for the ones that celebrate Valentine’s Day. Here in Romania, although there are some who celebrate it, we have also our own celebration called “Dragobete” which is celebrated on 24th of February. Anyway, I made a card I hope it inspires everybody.

Ziua in care americanii sarbatoresc dragostea se apropie cu pasi repezi. Stiu ca si la noi a inceput sa se sarbatoreasca Sfantul Valentin dar cred ca sarbatoarea noastra traditionala este mult mai draguta. Oricum, am facut pentru toti o felicitare care sper sa va inspire.

I am not a qiller but from time to time I like to experiment. For this card I used products from DACOart, which is a Romanian company of basic craft products. You can find their facebook page here.

Nu sunt experta in tehnica quillingului si nu o practic des, dar din cand in cand imi place sa incerc ceva nou. Pentru aceasta felicitare am folosit produse DACOart. Daca va plac produsele lor puteti sa ii urmariti si pe facebook. Produsele folosite de mine sunt: Hârtie quilling 30×0,5 cm, 300/set DACOart – HR904 , Silipici (LC050), foarfeca birou (FF101) si Baza pentru felicitari, set 10 felicitari si 10 plicuri – SC059W.

Monogram from scrap paper

If you are like me, I bet you have a drawer full of tiny little scrap papers that you don’t want to throw away so I thought I would share with you this little home decor piece.

I made this frame for my little boy’s room and he loves it. I used only scraps that match with his room and also have included some 7dots stickers and embellishments.

Hope you like my idea and if you want to be up to date with my posts don’t forget to subscribe.

Fun postage stamps/Timbre din fetru

Today’s post will be both in English and in Romanian as I think is a great idea for everybody to do. It also can be done with or for children.

Proiectul de azi va fi prezentat atat in engleza cat si in limba romana deoarece cred ca este foarte dragut a fi facut impreuna cu copiii sau pentru ei.

For this project I have used DACOart products, but you can use anithing you have on hand. For the booklet I used a white card base and some transparent packaging to make the page to stick the stamps. You can also use an acetate sheet if you have on hand. I have glued the transparency sheet with fabric tape on a side so it can be easily flipped.

Pentru acest proiect am folosit produse DACOart. Carticica cu timbre am facut-o dintr-o baza de felicitare (SC059RC) si un ambalaj transparent pe post de foaie in carticica. Partea transparenta am lipit-o cu banda textila autoadeziva (AD065) pentru a putea fi intoarsa usor. 

Using some felt embellishments and other accessories you have on hand make the little stamps. After that put double sided tape on the back if the felt has no adhesive on the back. Now you can put them in the booklet to have them on hand when you want to decorate an envelope.

Folosind decorici mici (AD219) de la DACOart creaza timbrele dupa bunul plac apoi le poti lipi in carticica pentru a le avea la indemana cand doresti sa decorezi un plic.

Hope you enjoyed my little project that can be done with kids as well. Thank you for stopping by!

Sper ca v-a placut proiectelul meu ce poate fi facut si copii. Asa ii puteti invata cum se lipesc timbrele pe plicuri.

Happy New Year!/La multi ani 2017!

Happy New Year! I wish you all a happy, prosperous, full of achievements new year! May all your wishes come true!

For this post I want to present you a cute and easy cake topper. I again used products from a Romanian Company but you can make a similar one with what you have on hand.

La multi ani! Va urez un an nou fericit, prosper, plin de succese! Sa vi se implineasca toate dorintele!

De aceasta data va propun un decor de tort dragut si usor de realizat. Pentru acesta am folosit produse DACOart pe care le puteti gasi aici.

Acest cake topper este foarte simplu de realizat. Aveti nevoie de 2 bete pentru frigarui, 2 stelute cu bumb (AD227), multisararita glitter (PU050), silipici (LC050), foarfeca birou (FF101) si snur din bumbac. Stelutele cu bumb au o parte adeziva. Folositi acea parte adeziva pentru a lipi sclipiciul de culoarea dorita. Tip: folositi-va de o coala de hartie pe care sa o puneti sub steluta pentru a nu imprastia sclipiciul peste tot. Astfel, sclipiciul in surplus poate fi adunat inapoi in sararita.

Dupa ce aveti pregatite stelutele, le lipiti pe sfoara folosind silipici si apoi lipiti sau legati sfoara de betele de frigarui. Este foarte simplu si foarte de efect pentru decorarea oricarui fel de tort, chiar si cel raw vegan.

Dragi Ioni si Ioane care imi cititi blogul va urez La multi ani! de ziua voastra si va invit virtual la o felie de tort! Pe curand!
