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.

Autumn wreath with foamiran flowers

Today I've finished my foamiran autumn wreath.
This past week I had a week off from work and plenty of time to make the flowers and leaves on this wreath.

I bought the wreath itself at a garden center. The berries are not made by me (although I want to try to make these in the near future). All the other flowers are handmade using foamiran from 14 craft bar. The feathers are from ebay.

Here are some close up pictures of the flowers.

I colored all  my flowers with chalks not with soft pastels this time. I like working with chalks a bit better I guess. I've created a dahlia, a sunflower, hydrangea, a vintage rose and a few fantasy flowers. I have a previous tutorial on how to make hydrangea flowers here.

Look at those cute stamens in the orange flowers. These are also from 14 craft bar.
I did use dies for the orange flowers but for the other flowers I hand cut every petal. I made the leaves by printing free templates from internet and cutting the shapes out of foamiran.

That's it for today.
I really would appreciate it if you tell me what you think of this autumn wreath.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs Henriette,

Cupcake inspiration challenge

Inspired by stamping  is sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration challenge and these are the cupcakes to inspire you to make a project with the suggested theme or colors.

My inspiration was the wonderful color combination teal, orange and white. I've made this card.

I used a stencil and white pigment inkt on the teal diamant shaped piece and I made the little flowers myself  using foamiran.
I used a white sheet of foamiran and with chalks and a baby whipe I colored the die cut flowers teal and orange.
The sentiment stamp is from the inspired by stamping cherry blossom stamp set. The label dies are also from Inspired by stamping.
For the finishing touch I've added some teal colored pearls and sequins.

For more information on the challenge and for entering the challenge please visit the cupcake inspirations blog.

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.
