My first card.


I would like to share what I've created today. I got most of my supplies delivered already and decided to make a card for someone very special for me.
My supplies are very limited, but I guess it's the same for every beginner. I had so much fun trying out some techniques I saw in cardmaking tutorials ^_^

I had the whole idea of the card in my head when I saw the sketch challenge on Newton's Nook Design blog. There were some things when I was choosing my first supplies that became my Must Have. And at least one stamp set from
Newton's Nook was on my list, I totally love this cat. And there we go, it came to me and I just had to use this.
I would like to participate in Inky Paws Challenge #24.

I changed a bit the sketch, but in my opinion it fits :)

Details about making this card.
I started by coloring my watercolor paper with distress inks to make the night sky. Then stamped 2 cats from 'Newton's Antics' set  and colored them with Copics. After that was done I fussy cut cat's and used black brush marker to hide white edges. I wanted my cats to sit on a tree but I didn't have any die to stamp, so I drew it very gently on watercolor paper.. When I was happy with the outlines, I colored it with distress inks and when it was completely dry, fussy cut it. To make it fit the cats more I used the same black brush marker to make color edges. On a small branch, I stamped 'loves mew' from the same stamp set and embossed it.

To finish my card I glued some stars on my night sky, die cut small hearts (btw. my fist die cut, I was so amazed by the results, it's like getting free cookie :D) and put them on card with foam tape to be on the same height as the tree. Added some wink of stella and glossy accent to make it shine. Also added some wink of stella on the noses and ears of my cats. At the very end I decided I want to add some leaves, so just colored with distress inks tiny bits of paper and die cut very few to give it upcoming autumn look.

Sorry, this post turned to be very long, will try to make new ones shorter.
Thank You for reading, any tips and opinions on what I could have done better are very welcome.
Have a great day.

Little bit about.

Hello everyone,

I want to share my passion/creations with You so I decided to start my own blog. Only recently did I find out my life's calling, making cards. I am totally crazy about it!

My name is Magda, and I'm 20 something years old from Poland. For long timeI've been looking for a job for a long time but no luck. I had too much free time and nothing to do, which started to make me unhappy. I never thought of myself before that I'm creative.

It started a few weeks ago, when I was looking for a card for a friend but couldn't find one I wanted. I started watching cardmaking video tutorials and decided to give it a try, managed to get some supplies (ehh it's hard when you want to have everything but can only choose a few *.*). Now that I have some, I just want to share how it's going.
'm not sure if I have any talent or not but I'm sure this is something I want to do either way. Maybe in time I'll even find some company here. I'd love to read your opinions, constructive criticism and tips are always welcome :)

I have to say that blogging is totally new for me. At the moment it doesn't look too good but I'll try and make it better. I have to learn how to do some stuff because, sadly, the image in my mind is just not enough :P

Thank You for reading and have a great day :)
