Stamp'n'Doodle Challenge - Easter

This week at Stamp'n'doodle Challenge it's Easter time. I don't celebrate Easter till 5th of May - the Orthodox Easter, but it's never to early to share a holiday card.
In aceasta saptamana la provocarea Stamp'n'Doodle e timpul pentru Pasti. Eu nu sarbatoresc Pastele pana in 5 mai - Pastele Ortodox, dar niciodata nu e prea devreme pentru o felicitare de sarbatoare.
Hope to see your creations linked in the challenge.
Sper sa va vad creatiile cu aceasta tema.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bookmark tutorial

Yes! Now I have a bookmark addiction! They are so easy to make! Let me tell you step by step.
Da! Acum am o manie pentru semne de carte! Sunt atat de usor de facut! Dati-mi voie sa va arat pas cu pas.

1. Choose a stamp. I chose this beautiful digi stamp from Tiddly Inks.
Alegeti stampila. Eu am ales aceasta stampila minunata de la Tiddly Inks.

2. Color it! You can use this coloring tutorial.
 Coloreaz-o! Poti folosi tutorialul de colorat de aici.
 3. Cut on the edges.
Decupoaza cu grija pe margini.
 4. Cut a 10x13 cm of cardstock.
Taie o bucata de hartie mai groasa la dimensiunea de 10x13 cm.
 5. Fold it in a triangle with the top on the side that has 13 cm.
Impatur-o in forma de triunghi cu varful pe latura de 13 cm.
 6. Measure the triangle and cut one a little bit smaller from another design paper.
Masoara triunghiul si taie unul similar dar putin mai mic dintr-o alta hartie cu design.
 7. For an older look, distress the edges.
Pentru un look vintage am antichizat triunghiul pe margini
 8. Using double sided paper, stick the second triangle on the first one.
 Folosind banda dublu adeziva lipeste-l peste primul triungi.
 9. Cut the unfolded edge with the diecut of your choice. I used here Tim Holtz Brackets Die.
 Taie partea neimpaturita cu ce matrita doresti. Eu am folosit Tim Holtz Brackets Die.
 10. Diecut 2 circles of slightly different sizes. I used 2 kinds of scalloped circles.
Taie doua cercuri de dimensiuni diferite. Eu am folosit doua cercuri dantelate.
 11. Stick the 2 circles together using pop dots.
Lipeste impreuna cele doua cercuri folosind banda dublu adeziva pentru 3D
 12. Using pop dots stick the circles to the base.
Folosind aceeasi banda, lipeste cercurile la baza.

13. Add the stamp to the base, add alphabet stickers and there it is. Your custom made bookmark.
Lipeste stampila peste baza, adauga litere autoadezive si semnul de carte e gata.

I'm linking this to the Tiddly Inks Anything But A Card Challenge.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Happy reading!
Sper ca v-a placut tutorialul! Spor la citit!

Bookmark addiction

Today I have a super quick post for you 'cause it's Sunday and the meal is boiling in the kitchen (*wink*). Do you remember the coloring tutorial that I presented at the end of February? Well... I've finally used that image on something and that something is a bookmark.
Azi am pentru voi un post foarte scurt pentru ca e duminica si mancarea fierbe in bucatarie. Va amintiti de tutorialul de colorat pe care l-am prezentat in februarie? In sfarsit am folosit acea imagine la ceva si acel ceva este un semn de carte.
I am entering this bookmark to Tiddly Inks Anything But A Card Challenge.
Inscriu acest semn de carte la provocarea celor de la Tiddliy Inks.

[ FRAGILE ]

Two posts in a day, two days in a row... This is a miracle and it doesn't happen very often. Hopefully it will...
Doua postari in aceeasi zi, doua zile la rand... Aceasta este o minune si nu se intampla prea des. Eu totusi sper ca se va intampla mai des.
Yesterday I was in the mood for some crafting so I decided to use this lovely chevron sheet of paper together with some stamps from the Unity January KOTM. Since I'm using chevron pattern I will enter the card for the Moxie Fab Wold Chevron Challenge.
Ieri am avut inspiratie pentru lucru manual asa ca am decis sa folosesc aceast model de hartie impreuna cu cateva stampile din kitul de ianuarie de la Unity Stamps. Pentru ca folosesc acest model de hartie, voi inscrie aceasta felicitare la provocarea Moxie Fab Wold Chevron.

Let Love Grow - An altered journal

For quite some time now I've started to alter an art journal and now I reached the desired form. The fact is that this cover was done and redone for 2 times till I reached the final result. 
De ceva vreme incoace am inceput lucrul la infrumusetarea acestui jurnal iar acum am ajuns la forma dorita. Adevarul este ca am facut si refacut aceasta coperta de 2 ori.
 
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, the metal embellishments are from Stamperia, the ribbon is from Ribbon Carousel Shop and the flowers... I don't know.
Mesajul de pe coperta este o stampila de la Unity Stamps, accesoriile metalice sunt de la Stamperia, panglica este de la Ribbon Carousel iar florile... nu stiu...

I wanna enter this journal to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge.

Thanks for your visit!

Easter decor

Moxie Fab World is having a challenge with the theme Spring Home Decor. So I thought I give it a try. I combined it with Tim Holtz Tattered Floral challenge.
Moxie Fab Wold are o provocare cu tema decor de primavara la care m-am hotarat sa particip. Am combinat aceasta provocare cu cea a lui Tim Holtz.
First I painted a white sheet of paper with red food coloring and than diecut it into pieces.
Pentru inceput am colorat o coala alba cu colorant alimentar rosu, diluat cu apa dupa care am taiat hartia folosind Tattered Floral Die.
I assembled the flowers and glued them on sticks. I attached some felt leafs and arranged them in a small flower pot. I thought it would be a great Easter decor so I die cut a bunny also.
Am asamblat florile si le-am lipit pe bete. Am atasat frunze din fetru si le-am aranjat intr-un  ghiveci mic. M-am gandit ca ar fi un decor frumos de Pasti asa ca am decupat si un ieputas.
 Now the Easter decor is ready to be put on your Easter table or anywhere you like.
Acum decorul de Pasti e gata sa fie pus pe masa de Pasti sau in orice parte a casei doresti.

For the granny

I know 8th of march is far away now, but I just couldn't help myself not to show you this card I did for a granny.
Stiu ca 8 martie a trecut deja, dar nu m-am putut abtine sa nu va arat aceasta felicitare pe care am facut-o pentru o bunica.
 
I printed the sentiment myself and cut it with Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies. The flowers were cut with Sizzix Framelits dies. Also the background is stamped with stamps from the same pack as the Sizzix dies.
Mesajul l-am printat si l-am taiat folosind Spellbinders Fancy Tags, florile sunt taiate cu Sizzix Framelits, iar fundalul l-am stampilat cu stampile din acelasi set de la Sizzix.

Tags

Today I will show you some tags I made to embellish the gifts that my mother, my grandma and my future mother in law received for Mother's Day.
Astazi va voi prezenta etichetele pe care le-am realizat pentru a accesoriza cadourile pe care mama, bunica si soacra le-au primit de Ziua Mamei.

The first tag was for my mother.
Prima eticheta a fost pentru mama.

This second tag was for my grandma.
Aceasta a doua eticheta a fost pentru bunica.

And last but not least, this second tag was for my future mother in law.
Si nu in ultimul rand, aceasta a treia eticheta a fost pentru viitoarea mea soacra.

Have a great week-end! I'm off finding the perfect wedding dress!
Sa aveti un weekend minunat! Eu am plecat sa-mi gasesc rochia perfecta!

Tattered flowers and a change


Recently someone in the blog land said: "it's to bad that people don't usually do bilingual blogs when they have this possibility". So I decided that starting today my blog will be written in English as well as in Romanian. What do you think? I hope my Romanian visitors will be thrilled about this change. For me it will be harder since I have to write twice, but I think I will manage it.
Recent cineva pe un blog a spus: "pacat ca blogg-erii nu isi scriu blogurile in doua limbi daca au aceasta posibilitate". Acest lucru m-a pus pe ganduri si m-am hotarat ca incepand de azi sa va scriu si in limba romana, pe langa limba engleza. Ce ziceti? Sper ca voi, vizitatorii romani, sa fiti incantati de aceasta schimbare. Pentru mine va fi putin mai greu pentru ca trebuie sa scriu de doua ori, dar sunt singura ca ma voi descurca.
Today I will show you a card made for the tattered flowers challenge that is going on at Tim Holtz blog. Here is a close-up on the flower. It is very easy to make and I think they look very cute. I'll share the tutorial later this month.
Pentru azi am sa va prezint o felicitare facuta pentru concursul tattered flowers pe care Tim Holtz il gazduieste. Aici aveti un detaliu al florii facute utilizand matrita Tattered Flowers de la Sizzix. Este foarte usor sa creezi o astfel de floare. Am sa va impartasesc tutorialul luna aceasta.
For the background I used Anna-Karin's tutorial that you can find here, but with a slightly change: I used acrylics instead of Distress inks.
Pentru designul de fundal am utilizat tutorialul Annei-Karin care poate fi gasit aici. Eu l-am modificat putin si am folosit culori acrilice in loc de Distress inks.

Happy birthday

In January I was one of the lucky winners who won the 75 Creative Card Challenges magazine from PaperCrafts and I was very happy about it. Somewhere in the magazine there was a card with a birthday cake made out of ribbon so I tried my best to case it.
Here is my take:
The cake stand is not a diecut, I made it myself ;).

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs!
