Vintage winter foamiran flowers

Hi, today I'm sharing a card I've made with a vintage winter theme.



I've recorded a video on how I've made the flowers. Making video tutorials is my biggest goal for the new year and this video is my second one and better than the first. It's on my you tube channel and I hope you'll take a look and give me some feedback on it.

The foamiran and stamens I used to make the flowers are from 14 craft bar.


The paper used on this card is from lemoncraft; house of roses.
The chipboards are from scrapiniec. I dapped gesso on it to make them white. The enamel dots are from create a smile and the sentiment stamp and label dies are from inspired by stamping.



Here is the link to the video tutorial on how I've made the orange and little white flowers.

I hope you like the card and my video tutorial and I would appreciate your feedback.

Peony with organza foam

Hi, yesterday I've made a flower using the thinnest foam on the market, it's called organza foam.
This foam is available at 14craftbar.com. It's super thin and very delicate and soft.
Not easy to work with, I must admit, it can tear very easily.



I cut out the petals by hand using a template I found here. About 7 to 9 of each. The more petals you use the bigger the flower will be.



With a lilac ink pad I dabbed the petals and then rolled the top gently between my fingers and shaping the petals.
I made the centre using a styrofoam ball covered with two layers of the organza foam, some stamens and I glued the petals using my heatgun.


It turned out very pretty and soft. I like the lilac color very much.

I'm entering this foamiran flower in the Noor design January challenge.

Felt flowers

Hi and a very happy New Year!!
The holidays are over and it's time for something else then Christmas cards.
I've created this floral card using the beautiful patterned paper from itsy bitsy store; watercolor floral ballet paper.



Instead of my usual foamiran flowers I decided to make some flowers from felt.
I was inspired by the beautiful paper flowers from Hanna Nyman. I follow her designs on Instagram and I just love how she uses black in her creations.
I've made my flowers from felt using all kinds of dies I had in my stock.
All the black parts are cardstock.



It's a cheerful and sweet card I think. I hope you like it to.

Foamiran Gerbera

Hi, on this day before Christmas I'm sharing with you a foamiran Gerbera flower I've made.


Before making a flower I always search on internet for pictures and study the flower a bit so that I can make it look as real as I can. For this gerbera I was inspired by this picture.


I noticed that the outside petals are all about the same size and very similar. So I made my petals in the same way. I used a stencil from 14 craft bar (#stencil #3, the right corner petal).


I used white, olive green and 2 shades of yellow foamiran, also from 14 craft bar.




Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Hugs, Henriette
