Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It's time again for the Coffee lovers blog hop !! I just love being part of such a great hop with so many talented crafters from all over the world!
Winter 2016 Blog Hop
I've made this sweet card using my favorite winter colors, white, pink and blue.



The mug and heart are free digital printables from miss tiina. I've made the background with mug and heart swirl in photoshop. After printing I added the sentiment which is a stamp from memory box.
The paper used is from local dutch store (action).



Thanks for all your comments!! Appreciate you've taken the time to visit my blog.

Hugs and warm winter wishes, Henriette.

So Suzy Stamp of the Month December

This is my last post featuring the So Suzy Stamp of the Month. This month all who subscribed will receive this sentiment stamp plus a bonus stamp AND .... everyone who signed up for the entire year will be receiving a couple of fabulous surprises with December's kits!




Together with all the previous months you'll have a wonderful collection of nautical/coastal themed stamps.

I have two cards for you today because the So Suzy website and store are closing down the second half of December to come back in the new year with a brand new and fabulous new site and store.

On my first card I only used sentiment stamp.




I stamped the sentiment with versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW earthtone mint embossing powder. The paper is digital paper from this Etsy shop. I thought the waves and arrows pattern fits the sentiment very well.
I've added a few enamel dots and wood veneer arrows. I've painted the wooden arrows in the same colors as the paper.

For my second card I played around with watercolor paints on watercolor paper until I was happy enough with the ocean kind of look. I used a MFT die to cut out the frame.
On a scrap piece of watercolor paper I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder.
I stamped the sand dollar 3 times with brown ink (one is second generations stamping) and fussy cut them.


I've never seen a sand dollar in real live. I don't think they can be found on beaches here in the Netherlands, but I do like them as I love all shells.

I hope you are inspired by my examples with the December stamp of the month.

Winter Tags

Yesterday I shared a card with the create a smile stamp set: made of snow and today I played some more with this set because it's such a fun set and fits the current challenge at create a smile perfectly.
This time I made three winter tags using the made of snow stamp set and paper from Deco Time called Christmas Cardboard patterns.



There's snow friend like you

Some time ago I ordered some stamps and goodies from Create a smile stamps and they finally arrived yesterday. So today I couldn't wait to make a card with the cute stamp set "made of snow".


I decided to make a shaker card and I used the Jennifer McGuire way to make the shaker piece.
For the frame I die cut about 8  pieces of white cardstock and glued them together.
