From Summer to Winter :)

Happy Thursday Everybody! So glad you stopped by today! I have two projects to share with you.

As you know each Sunday Rachel prepares for us the most delicious cupcakes – Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. This week she has a picture of  very cute ones. Don’t you think so?

I was inspired by tiny flowers, which remind me of DP paper from Imaginisce. I chose a stamp from C.C. Designs with sweet Swiss Pixie Heidi (blog candy prize). For the layout of the card I followed MOJO Monday sketch from several weeks ago (MOJO106). After I finished this summery looking card I thought that something is missing… If I have flowers, I need to water them, right? I wanted to try watering can project for a very long-time, really liked tutorial at Splitcoaststampers! And of course watering can needed a little something to it… At this time I remembered about Krafting Kimmie’s challenge  – Tag, You’re It. Why not to add a little tag with a beautiful saying as a finish touch!

Now to the next card and two more challenges. All That Scraps Wednesday blog asked for creating a card with older stamps. I had several stamped images (gift from friend Anna) with Gingersnaps that were released last year.  Perfect for this challenge! Of course I didn’t want to miss and played with Mercy’s Tuesday Skecth! Mercy and her Muses always inspire me!

Доброго Всем Дня! Спасибо, что заглянули ко мне. А у меня сегодня две открытки и маленькая поделочка. Начнем с первой…

Вы уже знаете, что я очень люблю вкусненькие пирожные, которые я нахожу на блоге у Rachel. Вот и в этот раз я не смогла устоять перед такой сладкой композицией. Очень мне понравились маленькие цветочки, тем более что у меня как раз была бумага с похожим рисунком, да и штампик Sweet Pixie Heidi на похожую тему я выиграла в розыгрыше призов. В качестве эскиза открытки я использовала MOJO Monday Sketch (MOJO106). Открытка готова, но чего-то не хватает… “Эврика!” – подумала. Если есть цветочки, то за ними нужно ухаживать, и конечно же поливать! Ну, какой же полив обойдется без леечки? А так как мне давно хотелось попробовать сделать бумажную леечку, то шанса такого я упускать не стала! Мастер-класс для изготовления нашла на моем любимом форуме Splitcoaststampers.

Перейдем к второй открытке, она больше соответсвует сезону. Еще в начале года моя подруга прислала мне распечатанные рисунки штампиков с  забывных девчушками (C.C. Designs, Gingersnaps). Лежали они почти целый год в конвертике и вот дождались своего часа. На блоге Wednesday All That Scraps на этой неделе проходит challenge – придумать открытку с использованием штампиков “постарше”. А еще мне не хотелось упустить возможности придумать открытку по эскизу на блоге у Mercy. Получается, что открытка была создана по удачному стечению обстоятельств.

Вот пожалуй и все на сегодня. Спасибо, что вы находите время и приходите ко мне в гости! Спасибо за ваши комментарии!

Всего вам Доброго и до новых встреч 😉 ,

Лена

  26. Здравствуй, моя дорогая Леночка!
    Как жаль, что я уже так долго не посещала твой замечательный блог… А ведь тут произошли очень милые события: новые открытки и рассказы, прочитав которые сердце переполняется радостью.
    Сегодняшнее московское утро дождливо и угрюмо, но, прочитав твои последние сообщения, мне оно уже не кажется таким уж сумеречным. Очаровательная композиция с леечкой возвращает в теплые летние дни, а новогодняя девочка напоминает, что самое радостное время в году наступит уже очень скоро!
    Желаю тебе еще больше вдохновения!
    Вера.

  27. Janine says:

  28. Anna says:

    Wonderful creations, Elena!!! Love your work 🙂

  29. Kukuruzka says:

    ААА!!! Крастища какая!!!! Лето и зима в одном посте 🙂
    Класс! Лен, летняя просто насыщенность цвета и необычного собирания бумажек! (ощущение, что там много-много бумажек) Леечка очень хорошо вписалась, умничка, что сделала ее!!!
    Зимняя-а-а-а!! Такая симпотулька! Девчушка милашка, а фон просто обалденный!!!

    Really glad you like my cupcakes and love that they’ve provided inspiration for you! Though the photo is copyrighted, so shouldn’t really be used like this. I would rather you added a link back to me if you must reproduce it:
