Mother's day card

Hi,

I love Liz Armstrong's cardmaking style. Her digital design boutique has great stamp images, sentiments and papers.
I purchased "floralie", a set of lovely patterned paper designs.
Liz style inspired me to make my next card. A mother's day card with a spring feel.

I printed one of the designs on vellum and placed the vellum on white cardstock.
The Mother's day tag is a free download from I heart naptime .
The butterfly is a die cut I had for many years.



I'm entering this card in these challenges:

bunny zoes crafts: spring colours
not real stamps: mother's day
come and get it challenges: winging it
lil patch of crafty friends: anything goes

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!

Hugs Henriëtte.

Spring (well almost)

Hi everyone,

Spring is just around the corner! You can smell it in the air here in the Netherlands.
We have a nice sunny weekend with temperatures around 15 degrees C.

My next card has a spring theme with a tulip as the focal point.


First I made a tulip out of silver wire. The idea is not mine. I have the shape from this Etsy shop.
Then I painted the background with my waterpencil using Ranger distress markers and fastened the wire tulip on it. 
I printed the "happy spring" sentiment on the cardstock. 





For the sketch I used this weeks sketch at cas(e) this sketch.



I would like to enter my card in these challenges:

case this sketch: sketch 113
who is tracy: monday moodboard 8, inspired by the tulips.




Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs Henriëtte.

Two Tags

Hello, how are you?

Today I would like to share with you two tags I made inspired by this tag from Donna Mikasa for the tag you're it challenge.

For my first tag I used a free digital stamp from Avery Elle.
I copied the lanterns to add a few more and I colored them in Photoshop.
For this tag I used the patterns and colors as my inspiration.




.... and because it is almost Chinese New Year (febr. 19), I made a Happy New Year's tag.
The paper on the bottom is from Basic Grey.

The other tag is also made using a free digital stamp, this time from the alley way stamps.
The fish on Donna's tag were my inspiration this time.



I did the coloring in Photoshop. The sentiment is also from the Alley Ways stamps.

Vellum and tissue paper

Hello, I hope you're all having a great week so far.







I found this gorgeous free printable wrapping paper on martha stewart.com. I printed the pattern on vellum.
Behind the vellum is cardstock. Then I placed it on a pink card.

I found a tutorial on how to make a tissue paper freesia.
It took me a few times to get a nice flower, because of the paper being so thin.

The sentiment is printed directly on a piece of vellum paper.










I love the soft colours on this card.

Tiger lily card

Hello

It's is time for another Monday-Mood-Board card.
This is the inspiration board



I choose the Tiger lily as my inspiration, because my mother use to have those flowers often on a vase during my childhood and
she always warned me not to get stains from the pollen on my clothes.
I search on the web for a free coloring page of a tiger lily.




The left image is the original coloring page, the right one is how it turned out after I colored it in Photoshop.



The sentiment is a clear stamp from a previous Simon Says Stamp card kit.
The card is in my favorite style Clean and Simple.

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.

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.


I'm entering this card in these challenges:

sweet 7 challenge:  the background paper is new

Thanks for reading my blog.

Hugs Henriëtte.
