Christmas tag with foamiran flowers

My second blog post today sharing a Christmas tag I made with some foamiran flowers.


I kind of like how this tag turned out. 
The paper is from Lemoncraft  (I bought it at 14 craft bar). 
The foamiran (and stamens) are from 14 craft bar . I used 3 types of white foamiran for the flowers; organza, silk and 0.6 mm foam.  For the organza and silk foam you don't need to use an iron to shape the flowers.



The wooden ornaments and the white furry pompoms I had in my stock.
The sentiment is printed on white cardstock. The Oval dies are from itsy bitsy.
I've added some clear droplets (Queen and co) and enamel stickers from create a smile
I covered the tag with effect snow.



I would like to participate in the following challenges:




Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love to hear what you think of this tag.

Hugs, Henriette.

Tiny vintage Christmas bottles

Hi, it's been a while since I posted on this blog but I'm also writing on other blogs as well.
You can find me twice a month on the 14 craft bar blog and also twice a month on the itsy bitsy blog. (in case you miss me ;))

Today I'm sharing some altered glass bottles with you.


These were plain tiny glass bottle about 4 cm (1,5 inch) heigh.
First I put gesso primer on the bottles and then painted them using chalk paints.
I printed tiny vintage labels and glued these on the bottles.
I decorated the bottles with ribbons and some bells and finally added some snow effect.

They look very cute, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs, Henriette.




Christmas card with foamiran poinsettias

Hi, a quick post from me today because I'm having the flu :(
I'm sharing a Christmas card I've made with 3 white poinsettia flowers on it.


For this card I used white foamiran, poinsettia die, pearl buttons and paper from 14 craft bar.
The joy die is from memory box and the little holly die is from simply creative.
I used glitter paper for the dies and on the letters I put glossy accents. In the centre of the flowers I glued clear micro beads.




I'm entering this card in the Noor November challenge:

Wreath with peacock colored foamiran flowers

Making foamiran flowers is very addictive. I had just finished my bell cups project and was already planning a new project. I wanted to make something in peacock colors because these colors are so beautiful together. A wreath is what I came up with. It's a small wreath, about 15 cm and made from moss.


I started with making the poinsettias. For this I used the dies, stamens and foamiran from 14 craft bar. I used 3 shades of blue foamiran.


Other flowers are made of green foamiran and the turquoise ones are colored with soft pastels.


I added feathers, leaves and little Christmas baubles (Hema shop)  to fill in the empty spots.
On the branches I glued beautiful metalized micro beads.


The wreath turned out very nice and I can't wait to put it up in a few weeks for Christmas time.




I hope you like it and are inspired by it. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.
