Winter card/invitation design

New week, new clothes 🙂 . I wrapped my blog in a green and burgundy present like design and I’ll am back creating in a flash. I have to do some new Christmas design cards for a friend and even though I have a lot of inspiration I didn’t finished one single design yet, but since I had an idea about a simple winter card I just had to see it through.

O saptamna noua, hainute noi :). I-am dat blogului meu un aer de cadou imbracand-ul in verde si visiniu si ma intorc la treaba. Am cateva felicitari de facut pentru o prietena si desi inspiratia nu-mi lipseste nu am reusit inca sa finalizez nici macar un model, dar pentru ca aveam o idee pentru o felicitare cu tematica de iarna ce imi doreram nespus sa o vad pusa in practica am luat o mica pauza.

The snow flakes are heat embossed with a white and gold glitter powder that adds a certain air of celebration to this card. I just love it, simple and elegant – the perfect invitation design for a winter wedding. I’m not pleased with the pictures, but there’s to much work to be done and not so much time left so, I hope you don’t mind.

Fulgii de zapada au fost embosati la cald cu o pudra alba cu sclipici auriu care adauga un aer de sarbatoare acestei felicitari. Imi place la nebunie ce a iesit, simplu si elegant – un design potrivit perntru o invitatie de nunta cu tematica de iarna. Nu prea sunt multumita cu pozele insa, e mult de munca si nu prea mult timp pentru asta, asa ca sper sa nu va deranjeze.

This is for :/ Inscriu felicitarea la urmatoarele provocari:

New clothes for the holidays

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and holiday season officially opens opens so I thought I’ll dress the blog in new clothes..
Although Romania isn’t celebrating, I think it’s ok to wish those who do a sincere Happy Thanksgiving 2011! and to thank all those who have been near last year on my blog and beyond.

Hope you like my new holiday clothes.

Maine e Thanksgiving si oficial sezonul de sarbatori se deschide asa ca m-am gandit sa imbrac blogul in hainute noi.
Desi in Romania nu se serbeaza, cred ca e ok sa urez celor care serbeaza un sincer Happy Thanksgiving 2011 si sa le multumesc tuturor celor care mi-au fost alaturi in ultimul an pe blog si nu numai.

Sper ca va plac hainutele mele cele noi.

See you/ Pe curand

Go green !

An echo friendly butterfly landed on my laptop. I think he has an agenda. He might make you smile :),he certainly made me smile. After I cut him out he was so cute and colorful that I couldn’t help my self. His is so sweet in wanting to keep the planet clean …  because I cut the shape from an aluminum foil pack box. Do that some time! Use the cereal boxes and other paper containers for for your projects you’ll have a nice pattern and you can save the forest.

Un fluturas ecologist a aterizat pe laptop-ul meu. Cred ca are un scop ascuns. S-ar putea sa va faca sa zambiti :), pe mine una cu siguranta m-a facut. Dupa ce l-am taiat si l-am vazut atat de colorat si dragut nu m-am putut abtine. Nu-i asa ca e tarre simpatic  vrea el sa ne salveze planeta? L-am taiat din ambalajul de la niste pungi de copt. Puteti face si voi asta folositi diverse ambalaje pentru proiectele voastre, veti obtine un elefct minunat si un plus salvam si padurea.

See you and don’t forget Go green!/ Pe curand si nu uitati Salvati padurea!

Color trends and chocolate moods

Last week I was in a mood for chocolate so much that this week I’d like to continue with some Christmas decorations that I made. I like butterflies so much that I thought it will be nice to have them in my Christmas tree  and I chose purple because is the most wanted color of the year :). You will understand my association when you’ll see the pictures. Here are my Filigram ornaments and M***a butterflies for Christmas (I was advise not to use the name of my inspiration and though I don’t think it’ll do any harm, I complied).

Saptamana trecuta am avut chef de ciocolata asa ca saptamana asta voi continua in aceeasi idee cu ceva decoratiuni pentru pomul de Craciun facute de mine. Imi plac fluturii asa de mult incat nu am rezistat ideii de a ii avea in pomul meu de Sarbatori si am ales culoarea Violet pentru ca este cea mai dorita acest an :). Veti intelege asociatia mea dupa ce veti vedea pozele. Iata cateva „Ornamente filigram si fluturasi M***a pentru Craciun” (am fost sfatuita sa nu folosesc numele companiei asa ca, desi nu cred ca ar fi o problema, m-am conformat).

If you like them and want some for your serfs or your love ones this babes will be available for sale here You can also write me an e-mail ( gabriela_albu78@yahoo.com ) containing the number of items and color choice (many other colors are available) .

Daca va plac si ati dori si voi sau poate vreti sa-i faceti cadou, acesti dragalari fluturasi vor fi disponibili aici. Imi puteti scrie pe adresa de mail gabriela_albu78@yahoo.com. Va rog sa mentionati numarul de fluturasi si culoarea .

Chocolate chips and Indian spice for Christmas

I wanted for quite some time now to show you an alternative for Christmas colors (red and green) that are so often used that became almost symbols for an impersonal and commercial Holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the colors and I even think they look good together, I just think you can do a Christmas card without using them for once. Hope you like it! Here it comes the alternative:

De ceva vreme vroiam sa va arat o alternativa la culorile deja traditionale ale Craciunului (Rosu si Verde) pe care le utilizam atat de des incat au devenit simboluri ale unei Sarbatori comerciale si impersonale. Nu ma intelegeti gresit, imi plac culorile astea si chiar mi se pare ca arata bine impreuna, eu doar cred ca se poate face o felicitare de Craciun fara sa te folosesti de ele. Sper sa va placa! Iata si alternativa : 

MaroonCopperTurmeric
MaroCupruTurmeric

The color combo comes from The play date cafe – PDCC 108  and the layout from Mojo Monday – MOJO215, the flowers are handcrafted from a gold leaf metallic paper and the ” JOY to the world” stamp with snow flakes background is a home recipe 🙂 ( it’s digital, I made it my self today especially for this card).

Am folosit culorile propuse de The play date cafe  pentru provocarea PDCC 108 si schema de la Mojo Monday provocarea  MOJO215, florile le-am mesterit chiar eu folosinf hartie metalica aurie (gold leaf) si measjul ” JOY to the world” cu cristale de zapada in fundal  este o reteta proprie 🙂 ( l-am creeat eu azi special pentru acest card)

.

I’m also entering Heart Song Inspirations: Challenge #25 – Gold or Glitter.

Ma alatur si celor de la Heart Song Inspirations pentru provocarea lor nr 25 – Auriu sau Sclipici.

See you/ Pe curand

Autumn’s colors

I was playing outside with my one year old son one day and I took some pictures. I saw them again today and that reminded me of one lovely young couple that back in September shared their special day with their new born son in a joined celebration (marriage and baptism). They wanted a simple, fall inspirited invitations and immediately fall in love with this design:

Eram afara la joaca impreuna cu fiul meu intr-o zi si am facut cateva poze. Revazandu-le azi mi-am amintit de doi tineri minunati care in luna Septembrie au inpartit cu fiul lor cea mai importanta zi. Nunta si botezul s-au celebrat in aceeasi zi si pentru acest eveniment si-au dorit ceva simplu, cu aer  de toamna. Au indragit inmediat acest model:

And here’s the trigger :):

Iat si factorul declansator :):

Hugs and kisses,/Pupici,
