Shabby Chic Tag

Yesterday I've ordered some mulberry flowers from a Dutch craft store called Scrap4you and my order came in today, which is a super fast delivery.
I couldn't wait to start creating something with the flowers so I've made a shabby chic tag.


I love how it's turned out. 
The heart is from plywood. I've bought it at wycinanka
The paper is from Tilda and the flowers are from scrap4you.


For glueing on the heart and the flowers I used my hot glue gun.
The sentiment die is from a ebay shop. I've also added lace, a pin, pearls and some leaves from a lace trim.

I hope you like this tag as much as I do. It looks really beautiful and elegant and wasn't that difficult to make.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.


Shabby chic flower card

I've made another shabby chic card. On this card I did not use paper flowers or mulberry roses but a beautiful flower applique and other flowers from trims of lace.



The background paper is from eline pellinkhof, I had it in my stash for many years.
The plywood ornament and wooden butterfly are from Wycinanka. I've kept the ornament untreated but I've colored the butterfly with a pink marker,


Between the cardstock and the patterned paper on the right edge I glued a piece of pink lace.
I used several flowers from lace trim and a large flower with leaves applique.
Finally I've added pearls and a white peacock feather. I like it how different pieces are hanging off the edge.


I'm entering this card in the cas-ualfridays challenge.



Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Henriette.


Little princess

Today I'm sharing a castle shaped card for a little princess.


I've used the castle template years ago. When I saw the digital stamp from craftin desert divas I remembered the castle template and found the perfect setting for the digi.

The template is a free download from a path of paper.


The bricks are a digital download from this Etsy shop. I've colored the digital stamp with spectrum noir markers.


I've added decoration stickers around the edges and a little kitty puffed sticker on one of the towers.
It's great fun how the card folds open in different levels just like a medieval castle.


I'm entering this card in the Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

Hugs, Henriette.


Guest DT Inkspirational Challenge - Watercolour Smooshing


Last January I was one of the top picks at inspirational challenges and I was invited to be the guest designer in a future challenge.

The theme for the challenge is "watercolour smooshing". Here is a link to a tutorial on this technique. I used that same technique on my card.



The paisley stamp used on this card I had in my stash a long time. It is from Artemio, wood mounted stamp. 
I stamp the image several times with versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder,
Then I did the watercolour smooching.
The sentiment is from a previous Simon says stamp card kit and just perfect for the colorful card. Finally I've added some gold and blue sequins.



I hope you'll join us in this weeks challenge over at inkspirational challenges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Henriette.


Shabby Chic tag

Sometimes I like to make shabby chic projects and today I've made a tag.
It's a big tag, approx. 3,5 by 6,5 inches.


I've used all kinds of items I had in my stash. The background paper e.g. is from one of my very first bought paperpads ever. I had it for many years.
The plywood hearts are from wycinanka. I've painted them and gave them an ancient look.
The lace is from a local market haberdashery (I had to look the word up) stall.


I hope you like this shabby chic tag.
Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate your comments!

Hugs, Henriette.
