Happy Easter! / Boldog húsvéti ünnepeket!

I made these Easter origami boxes for D's little nieces and nephews. Since I don't have a die cutting machine, I had to make baskets with my own hands. I saw this box first at Kristina's (see on the right among her most watched videos).

Ezeket a kis origami kosarakat D unokaöccseinek és unokahúgainak készítettem. Mivel nincs vágógépem, ez tűnt a legegyszerűbben elkészíthetőnek. Kristinánál, a fenti linken található egy angol nyelvű videó is az elkészítéséhez.


The felt embellishments were made by my godfather's wife. She makes some embellishments occasionally and then gives it to me as birthday or Xmas gift. :-)

A filc díszeket keresztapám felesége készítette. Néha készít nekem különböző díszeket a képeslapokhoz, aztán megkapom ajándékba valamilyen alkalomra. :-)


The grass is made from green washi tape...finally I could use it!

A füvet dekortapasszal készítettem...végre tudtam ezt a színt is használni megint.


I also still have some 12 x 12 textured cardstock left and these are perfect for these boxes (except that I have to be very careful because they are quite thick). I don't really use them for cards.

Még van egy rakás 12 x 12"-es alapkartonom, amit képeslapokhoz nem nagyon használok, ezeknek a mérete tökéletes az origami dobozkához (azon kívül persze, hogy nagyon kell vigyázni a hajtogatásnál, mert elég vastagok és könnyen megtörnek).

There are some Easter challenges around so I'd like to enter these baskets into the following ones:
Just Add Ink - Just Add Bunnies
CAS-ual Fridays - CFC95 Funny Bunny (I know there's a small card/tag in it, but it's not only a card... I hope it still qualifies)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes (I just missed the Easter-themed one:)

És végre egy magyar kihívásba is beszállok, méghozzá Pippinél, ahol csak annyi a kitétel, hogy nála vásárolt összetevőkből legyen az alkotás. Nos, a kosár abból van. :-) Bővebb infó ITT. A lájkokat majd FB-n dobjátok a fényképeimre Pippi oldalán, ha kedvetek tartja, nemsokára felkerülnek.

The Tricky Vellum + Silver Embossing Combo

The vellum - silver embossing combo was really hard to catch in a photo but I swear it looks really cool in real life. :) Since this week the challenge is 'Make a cute angle' at Daring Cardmakers, I'm entering this card into their challenge. By the way, this card had to be somewhat classy and masculine as it'd go to my bf's dad in April.



Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Bunny

Though it is the most awful weather outside in the whole time of this winter/spring, Easter is still coming. So after our skiing vacation I thought it was time to create something with a bunny. And I went for some inspiration to the uber-talented Julie Ebersole, the GD this month at CASE Study.




I did some inky mistakes in the upper right corner unfortunately but I think the small carrots cover them up perfectly.

I'm entering this card into the latest CASE Study challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bday Card for Grandpa

The basic idea was that I have to make a card for my grandpa's bday next week as I'll be abroad at the time. It also had to have a smile... that turned out to be green...and interactive!

On this day... 

...you have every right to smile!

Challenges:

Supplies: Neenah - Desert Storm cardstock, ColorBox inks, American Crafts - alphabet stickers, Uniball white gel pen, EP - Happy Day 6x6 pad, Lawn Fawn - Happy Father's Day stamp set, Paper Smooches - Zoo Crew, Rangers - Glossy Accent

Keep Calm and Drum On

When I got my Happy Father's Day set from Lawn Fawn I wanted to try out the armchair stamp in the first place. Then I fussy cut it and it was laying around on my desk for weeks. I knew it'd become handy soon because quite a few birthdays were around the corner to which I was not supposed to give girly cards. :) So I kept it simple and masculine just as the latest challenge of Addicted to CAS requires it.


This one goes to one of my colleagues in April. He's a father of three, he's always there for his family, for us and keeps working every single night. Above all of that he plays the drums in a folk band... and he keeps drumming on his chair behind me at work, too. :))

As always, thanks for stopping by!
