Vintage Romance

The Scraper in Romania #19th challenge is „time for weddings” a bride’s bouquet inspiration. So I got on the old memories drain and got inspired, put all my ideas to work and … here it comes my Vintage Romance:

Scraper in Romania lanseaza pentru cea de a 19 provocare tema „Vremea nuntilor” propunand ca inspiratie buchetul miresei. Asa ca am rascolit printre amintiri si am pus toate ideile in practica. Iata ce a iesit – l-am numit: Vintage Romance.

I patterned the paper my self. I used a pearl rose powder after I stamped the design all over the page and distressed the edges  for a more finished and authentic look. Since is my first time using this technique please be gentile and discard any mistakes I’ve made.

Imprimeul l-am facut chiar eu. Am folosit o pudra perlata de nuanta roz asta dupa ce am stampilat toata foaia cu modelul ales si am dat marginilor un aspect de patina timpului pentru un look finisat si autentic. Avand in vedere ca este pentru prima data cand folosesc aceasta tehnica am sa va rog sa fiti ingaduitori si sa ignorati eventualele greseli.

This is also for CASE Study challenge #63 and since Anything goes, likewise for the folowing:

Aceasta felicitare e si pentru Provocarea nr 63 la CASE Study, iar pentru ca este Admis orice … particip si la cele de mai jos :) :

A time for …

My next one is an Invitation to a bal design dressed in purple – it kind of reminds you of old book covers, cardinals and musketeers.

Urmatorul meu design este o Invitatie la bal imbracata in Violet – parca iti aduce aminte de copertile cartilor vechi, cardinali si muschetari.

When Alexandra and Liviu decided that is time for: „one for all and all for one” they new they wanted something down from a fairytale – like Cinderella maybe, but not so much and then Liviu suggested the old book ornaments as a guide line – maybe early 1600. They both loved the …something blue design and agreed that it has to have some purple in it (one of Alexandra’s favorite) so my job was simple – transforming the existing design in to their harts desire.

Cand Alexandra si Liviu au hotarat ca e timpul pentru: „unul pentru toti si toti pentru unul” si-au dorit ceva coborat parca dintr-un basm – cum ar fi Cenusareasa, dar nu atat de mult si apoi Liviu a venit cu ideea sa folosim onamente gen carti vechi –  ceva gen inceput de secol XVI. Amandorura le placea modelul …something blue si erau de acord ca ar trebui sa contina culoarea violet (una din preferatele Alexandrei) asa ca din acel moment treaba mea era simpla: sa transform modelul existent in ceva pe sufletul lor.

See you soon/ Pe curand

Less is more

Sometimes, almost always – less is more; by choosing something simpler you can emphasize the elegance and fine taste of your event for example. It all comes down to what you love and won to share, so: choose wisely with your hart and don’t lose sight of what is important.

Uneori, aproape intotdeauna – mai putin insemna mai mult; alegand ceva mai simplu poti sublinia eleganta si rafinamentul evenimentului tau, de exemplu. Totul se reduce la ceea ce iti place si doresti sa imparti cu ceilalti, asa ca: alege cu intelepciune, cu inima si nu pierde din vedere ceea ce este cu adevarat important.

Here’s an example. A 4×6″ Double Backed Card Stock Invitation (Textured Bordeaux and yellow card stock) with White Gold metallic shimmer print. The invitation comes with a confirmation card placed inside a simple v opening envelope – Light Beige textured.

Iata si un exemplu. O invitatie 10.5×14.8 cm in 3 straturi (coperta – Bordeaux texturat, contur Galben solar si print Alb metalizat cu reflexe aurii). Invitatia vine impreuna cu un card de confirmare si plic texturat Bej deschis – deschidere in v.

See you,/Pe curand,

Green delight

Delicatesa verde

Even if flowers are not my trade, I can’t pass the opportunity to do something new with my hands. I was telling you about the baptism and the adorned candle… Here is what I made for my godson.

Chiar daca nu sunt tocmai meseria mea, nu pot spune nu ocaziei de a face ceva nou cu manutele mele. Va povesteam despre botez si impodobirea lumanarii … Iata ce am facut pentru finutul meu.See you/ Pe curand,

Gabi

Sneak peek

Today I’m in the mood for a little bit of teasing.

Azi am chef sa va tachinez un pic.

I’m proud godmother to a cute little boy called Vlad and we’re going to church to baptize him.  As customary a candle must be adorned  – that signifies strong light of faith in Christ who will guide the child through his life.

Sunt nasa unui baietel tare simpatic pe nume Vlad si mergem la biserica sa-l botezam. Asa cum se obisnuieste am inpodobit o lumanare ce semnifica lumina vie a credntei in Hristos ce-l va ghida pe micut in viata.

Hugs and kisses,/ Pupici,

Gabi

A touch of Bordoux

Un strop de Bordeaux

Andreea wonted a touch of color at her wedding and Bordeaux fit perfectly the description.  The picture of the two grooms, and a few golden accents on a ivory piece of shimmering paper made the design so elegant in his simplicity meant to highlight their event refinement and good taste.

Andreea si-a dorit un pic de culoare la nunta ei si Bordeaux-ul se potrivea de minune. Poza celor doi miri precum si cateva accente aurii printate pe o hartie Ivory metalizat au dat acestui design o eleganta aparte, menita parca sa sublinieze  rafinamentul si bunul gust al evenimantului.
