Cameo wedding invitation / Invitatii handmade cu camee

With every new day I feel myself closer and closer to my dreams. Trying cameo designs was something I wanted from the first moment I knew/saw cameo exist - this was during college while learning about gems. Here they are.
Cu fiecare noua zi ma simt tot mai aproape de visele mele. Sa incerc sa creez ceva folosind camee mi-am dorit inca de cand le-am vazut prima data - la facultate cand am studiat gemologie. Iata minunatiile.

These are my first designs using cameo. I believe they are very elegant and so, so perfect for a wedding invitation.
Sunt primele mele creatii cu camee. Cred ca sunt foarte elegante si atat de potrivite pentru o invitatie de nunta.

Thank you for your visit,
Va multumesc de vizita,

Spring is here

I just love this word... Spring... I just love to use it over and over again... We live a house not an apartment. And this year we decided to try gardening. Wish me luck.

I had a special order to deliver so I was very, very busy. But now I just couldn`t help myself anymore... I miss blogging. Definitely I won`t stop blogging :)

For today a card actualy I`ll post two cards on which I used some scrap paper. It`s not for the first time I combine scrap paper and quilling but I don`t remember if I ever posted other projects like this.

Ador cuvantul primavara... Imi place asa de mult sa il folosesc iar si iar... Locuim de vreo 3 ani la casa si anul acesta ne-am hotarat sa incercam gradinaritul. Tineti-mi pumnii sa se faca legumele.

Am avut de trimis o comanda asa ca am fost foarte, foarte ocupata. Dar acum nu m-am mai putut abtine... Mi-e dor de blogareala. Categoric nu ma voi opri din blogarit :)

Azi postez doua felicitari pentru care am folosit hartie scrap. Nu e prima data cand combin hartia aceasta imprimata cu quillingul dar nu imi mai amintesc daca am mai scris si altadata despre asta sau nu.

And here is a beige-brown-peach combo. The paper is from Joanna Sheen, Taj Mahal paper stack.

Si aici o combinatie bej-maro-piersiciu. Hartia e de la Joanna Sheen, Taj Mahal se numea pachetul de hartie.

My favourite is definitely green and pink but if I had to make a gift I would choose the beige one.
I am happy these days, searching for seeds for our garden, spending more time outside the house... having some new cosmetics and feeling like a woman:)
What about you?

Preferata mea e clar cea cu verde si roz, dar daca ar fi sa fac un cadou as alege-o pe cea bej.
Sunt tare bucuroasa zilele astea, caut seminte pentru gradinita noastra, petrecem mai mult timp afara... si am niste cosmetice noi care ma fac sa ma simt femeie:)
Voi cum mai sunteti?

Every spring with it`s clovers

Irish celebrate St. Patrick. I celebrate Spring. Clovers are common in my country for this season. I used a lot of green, and they turned out so beautiful. Love them.

I find myself more often saying how much I love my cards. Maybe I`m just in a too positive mood or maybe they are really beautiful. Who can really say?

Have a great, beautiful, green and fresh spring!
Me :)

Cherry blossom, again

The same background like the one used for the snowdrops... but some cherry blossom this time. I couldn`t help myself... sorry if I am boring but I believe these posts match together.

And here is a green background. This is a stamp from Tim Holtz, quite expensive in my opinion but one of my favourite stamps.

I believe stamps fill a card and make quilling look better. I mean less quilling because when you put much quilling on a card you won`t need stamps or other embelishements, but that for sure would be an expensive card considering the time...

Have a great spring,

The Feminine Gender

A very, very special day for us, today. Happy anniversary - we celebrate women, mothers... the feminine gender as someone with a little girl and a lady dog said.

Here are a few snowdrops I`ve made, love them all, simply love them, just love them - this is all I can say. No. There is more - I adore them.

Maybe already you know this type - I saw them everywhere around. I decided to use some lace - since I love it so much and some stamps as background. Simply yet so beautiful.

I`ve tried more colors. Such a simple recipe for these cards isn`t it?

Wishing you a lot of happiness and smiles and laughs,

To post or Not to post

Hello dear ones and Happy Spring to all of us!
I was wondering if I should post or not my creations... Quilling is gaining more and more space in the world of crafts and I see my visitors search for ideas and this place became a come and go.

I was even thinking to close my blog for a while... But for the moment I`ll show you a few of my creations for the 1st of March (you know we consider this day important as being the first day of spring yeiiii!)

I was wondering what bothers me that people visit my blog searchig for ideas? I shouldn`t post anymore if I don`t want them to see my ideas... But there is something that doesn`t fit into my mind and soul...

Even so I decided to show you my martisoare or amulets... I had a special order and here are few of them.

Maybe you know this flower from last year, a combination between husking and royal. I love them all! I love quilling and love my life.

Sending you warm sunshine,
