Fruity shaker card

Hello friends,

The other day I bought a bag of little styrofoam balls.


I didn't know what to do with them then but I used them in a shaker card.



I cut three different size holes in yellow card stock using my cuttlebug, glued on acetate paper.
I used foam instead of foam tape to seal the shaker (tip from jess crafts blog ).
I cut out different sized circles using different colors cardstock.
The cute fruits are puff stickers from a local shop, as are the alpha's stickers.
It's a very bright and colourful shaker card.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:

Dutch themed card

Hi and welcome,

I've made a Dutch themed card today with Dutch Icons on it like canal houses, windmills, farmers, Delft Blue and wooden shoes.
My grandfather was a wooden shoe maker, way back in the old days (I think even before WWII).
Here is a picture from a painting were my grandfather is practicing his occupation. It's an old trade, not many people make wooden shoes anymore because there is no market for them.
My grandpa was a good and friendly man. I have fond memories of him.


Back to my card.
The bp is from this Gecko galz Etsy shop.
The clear stamps are from Kars. I colored them using distress markers and felt tip pens from Stabilo.
Printed the sentiment myself. Added some twine. 






(How cute are those little Delft Blue pots in the foreground? They are doll house miniatures).

For the layout I used the sketch from sunday sketch and stamp.

knife fork spoon

Hi,

When I have some spare time I like to do some wire form bending.

I made these a couple of weeks ago.
 They are Picasso line drawings. You can find several examples on pinterest.

It is much fun to do.
The other day I wanted to make table ware out of wire. I found the perfect templates on almost makes perfect.
I printed the templates and started bending. It was not an easy job but I'm pleased with the results.


I made a thank you for dinner card with the utensils.
The sketch is from freshly made sketches.


You can't see it well on the picture, but the circles are cut out of sparkling metallic paper.

What does the fox say?

Hi and happy Wednesday,

I admit I have my doubts about my next card.
It started with this cute cross-stitch pattern I found browsing on Pinterest.



Then the song "what does the fox say" popped in my head (still hasn't completely go away its very persistent ;)).

I decided to make the pattern using sequins.





For the layout I used sketch # 101 from case this sketch


I used my die cut machine to cut out two circles.
Glued the sequins to a grey/blue circle. 
Made the sentiment in Word and printed it on the card stock,
Then I added three larger sequins under the sentiment and twine on the top of the card.
Well it is somewhat different.

Thanks for the visit!

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow:  Have a very happy Thanksgiving!!

Hugs Henriëtte.

Felt flower wreath

Hi, I hope you are doing fine.

I played with felt yesterday and made some Christmas flowers. I wanted to use them on a card and decided to make a
wreath out of felt and placed the flowers on the wreath.
I used my die cutting machine for some of the flowers and the wreath.


I printed the sentiment on white cardstock and added a few pins, twine and a bow to complete the card. I love this color combo 
white, light green and a touch of red.
I think it's an x-tra special Christmas card.

Christmas house

Hello,

I LOVE the Moodboard Monday Challenge. Not because my card was one of the highlights of last challenge ;) but because it's a different kind of craft challenge and because I like moodboards.

Tracy's fourth moodboard is this one:


When I saw the moodboard I immediately thought of a cute little house die cut I have.
That was my first inspiration. I also like the color combo white, light blue and light green,
I also was inspired by the cross stitch pattern on the candles. Well here is my card.


I made the sentiment using a cross stitch font.

The die cut is from Marianne designs collectables 2013.
The paper is from dovecraft.

Thanks so much for visiting. Have a nice day,
