Christmas Match boxes with Inspired by Stamping Sugar & Spice stamp set

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing I think what is my first Christmas project of this year.
These cute match boxes will make a great Christmas card alternative to send to families with small children or friends.



Before I started with my project I looked for a color scheme and these were the colors I wanted to use.


First I made the match boxes using a template from templatemaker.nl and dark brown cardstock.
The paper is from a store called Action and perfect for the theme.
I used the super cute Sugar & spice stamp set from Inspired by Stamping.


This is such a great set with all the sweets and the cute gingerbread men. 
You can give the gingerbread men hats, scarfs, bowtie and other decorations.
I used some google eyes on my gingerbread men.





I hope you like these match boxes. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Henriette.

More foamiran flowers

Hi, today I've been making more foamiran flowers and also a gift box with one of the flowers on it.
The idea for the flowers I found on mag fantasy blogspot. I just loved that flower and also the way she made the centre with all the little beads. So I decided to make kind of the same flower.


For the open flowers I used a poinsettia die (small posh outline) from poppy stamps  and the other ones a flower die set from 14 craft bar.
The foamiran is also from 14 craft bar. I used 2 shades of green and a blue.
The micro beads are metalized micro beads. It was the first time I worked with these tiny tiny beads and I really liked it (although my desk became full of micro beads).




I also used these micro beads on the brances.
I made a box using the same color paper as the flowers are and glued the flower and branches on the lid.


Then I stamped a little for you sentiment (stamp is from inspired by stamping) and attached it to the box.




That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.


DT 14 craft bar

Today I'm finally allowed to announce that I was chosen to be part of the 14 craft bar design team.



I've only discovered foamiran in March this year and it has been my new passion since.
Using that thin foam and making beautiful flowers has been pretty addictive these past months and when 14 craft bar had a DT call I just tried my luck.
I was so excited and happy when I received the mail that they wanted me on the team.
Thanks so much Agnieszka and Emilia!

I'm looking forward to making pretty projects using the fabulous products from the 14 craft bar webshop. You can see many more beautiful flowers on the 14 craft bar blog and on the facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by and until soon with new foamiran flowers!

Hugs Henriette.








Magnolia flower card


Today I'm sharing this magnolia card made with the beautiful magnolias stamp set  from Inspired by Stamping.


First I stamped the flowers on white card stock with Memento tuxedo black ink and I colored the images with my spectrum noir markers.
After that I fussy cut the colored images.
I used two dies from the inspired by stamping label dies to cut out labels for the sentiments.

I stamped the word happy with versamark ink and heat embossed it with nuvo silver embossing powder. Then I stamped the word birthday on a piece of fuchia colored cardstock. Both stamps are from the inspired by stamping Happy set.


Finally I assembled my card. The white splatters on the fuchia cardstock I made with Ranger white dylusions ink spray. I also added a few silver dots embellishments.



 Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs Henriëtte.



Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop

How time flies!! The fall coffee lovers blog hop is here again.
Here is my entry for the best blog hop there is.


I went with a different fall color scheme this time.
The paper I've used for this card is digital paper from Harper Finch Designs.
The sentiment I made myself in photoshop using the same colors as the patterned paper.


The dies are from my favorite things  and the cute coffee cup is a die cut from craftin desert divas (one of the blog hop sponsors). The tiny pumpkin on the coffee cup is a digital stamp from craftin desert divas which I colored digital in photoshop and the printed in a very small scale.

I kinda like the colors of this card.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!!
Have fun hopping.

Hugs, Henriette
