Scabious foamiran flower

Sharing another foamiran flower I've made these past days. It's a kind of scabious flower but not quite the same.



I watched this video with a tutorial (it's in Russian) and used this template.



The foamiran I bought at 14craftbar .
I did not follow the steps exactly the same way but gave my own twist to the flower.
For the center of the flower I used little green and blue styrofoam balls. I used some cheap super glue but the balls reacted strangely to the glue and began to shrink. It did not bother me much so I left it as it was.




Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs, Henriette.

Full bloom

I've been making some more foamiran flowers and this time I also made a card with them.


I made the pink flowers with the smallest die from the Rosy Dot AC1 dies.
The gypsophila flowers I made using two dies from the craftin desert divas garden border die set.


Aren't they cute? I love gypsophila ever since I was a child and I'am very happy now that I know how to create these with foamiran.


For the pink flowers I used pink foamiran sheet and I colored the flowers with green/yellow and dark pink chalks before putting them to the hot iron.

After I made the branch I decided to make a card with these flowers.


The sentiment is from the inspired by stamping magnolias stamp set.




Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Foamiran Vintage Rose

After two months of decorating, moving and furnishing our new house it was so delightful to be making a flower from foamiran in my little craftroom today. I was a totally happy girl.

I've got the idea for this vintage rose from a video tutorial I saw on You tube.
Here is a link to that video in case you also want to make this beautiful rose.


I just followed the steps as shown in the video and made the flower in about 2 to 3 hours.


It's a beautiful flower I think.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hugs, Henriette.

Gift boxes using sentiment stamps from Inspired by stamping


I've created two gift boxes using sentiments from the Inspired by stamping July release stamp set Summer bouquet.

Inspired by Stamping Summer Bouquet stamp set

The boxes are not my own design, I saw a video tutorial on You tube, you can find it here.

For the pink box I used pink cardstock and beautiful patterned paper from a Dutch store.



I have decorated the box with a handmade foamiran flower (here is my blogpost on foamiran flowers) and the sentiment is from the stamp set.

For the other box I used gorgeous tissue paper that came with a present. It was so pretty I saved it and it was perfect for a gift box.
I glued the tissue paper on the pre-scored cardstock.


I used some glitter accents and a little black flower to embellish the box.
The box is perfect for little wedding gifts or birthday gifts.




The dies I used for the tag are nesti dies from inspired by stamping.
They also sell that cute little flower on the sentiment tag.

Making boxes is fun and a great way to use your pretty papers, sentiment stamps and embellishments.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.



Inspired by Stamping July Release Day 3

Welcome to Inspired by Stamping’s July 2017 Release! I'm are so happy you are here.

This week Inspired by Stamping is releasing 3 new stamp sets and 2 new coordinating die cuts to their store. All new products are already available in the store! You can visit the store by clicking here.




Today the team is showcasing the new Happy stamp set and die.
I've created 2 cards.  They are very clean and simple cards because I'm in de middle of moving and most of my craft stuff are in moving boxes.


For this card I've used the happy die to cut out the word 3 times using different pattern papers.
The birthday sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.
For the other card I used the cotton buds stamp technique.
With a cotton bud and different shades of pink ink I made the flowers and then added some green. It's suprisingly easy to make it.
I stamped the sentiment using my mini misy tool.
