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:

That's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by.

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.

Bell cups with foamiran flower

Last week I bought several dried poppy bell pods (white) and I thought it would be nice to use them in combination with foamiran flowers. This is what I came up with.


Three bell cups filled with different foamiran flowers in white and pink, snowed branches, curly moss and leaves.
I used white and pink foamiran sheets from 14 craft bar. The stamens are also from this shop.
The bell cups, branches and curly moss are from a Dutch flower arranging shop.


To make this rose I used dies from 14 craft bar.

I also made some pink hydrangea flowers. You can find a step by step tutorial on how I makes these on a this blog post.


There is also a clover in this bell cup. I made the clover by watching a tutorial on you tube (link here).


In this bell cup are some more hydrangea, a poinsettia and a few fantasy flowers.
For the poinsettia I used this poinsettia die and for the little flowers I used some of these smaller dies from 14 craft bar.


The cute bell cups make a wonderful centerpiece on a table.


Thanks for stopping by today.

Hugs, Henriette.

Foamiran Halloween

Hi and happy Halloween!!

I've created some foamiran flowers in Halloween colors to decorate a candle with.


The foamiran, stamens, dies and stencils I used are from 14 craft bar.

For the orange flowers I used orange foamiranpurple stamens  and flower dies. I've used red chalk on the edges of the flowers. The purple stamens in the centre I just love!


For the little flowers I used black and purple foamiranstencil no 6 and  orange wire stamens.


The purple flower took the most work. It's made using a stencil, purple foamiran and blue heart stamens.


The candle is (dark)grey and with a black candle I dripped candle wax on the grey one to give it a creepy effect.



There are more fabulous Halloween themed projects with foamiran on the 14 craft bar blog  today.
I invite you all to take a look there.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I would appreciate it if you leave a comment.

Hugs, Henriette.
