Lantern

Hi and welcome to my blog.
Today I'm sharing a chipboard lantern I've assembled, painted and decorated. The chipboard lantern is from Laserowe love and it's about 22 cm tall.


I painted all the pieces with chalkpaint in light blue and let them dry before gluing the lantern together. After I assembled it I used copper wax to give the lantern an old look.


I decorated the lantern with lots of foamiran flowers, moss, pine cones, Silver Birch Bark Stars,  berries and Tim holtz wood slices.



The inside bottom I decorated with moss, cinnamon sticks, wood accents, fake fur and Tim Holtz Deers.



I hope you like my decorated chipboard lantern. 
The lantern and most of the embellishments I used are available at Crafteezee UK.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Henriette.

Blues and browns

Hi, crafty friends. I don't make much cards especially made to enter challenges simply because I have no time, but today I'm sharing a card inspired by a moodboard challenge over at Saratov scrap club.


I just love the colors!
For the cardbase I used Nellie's Multi Frames dies.
I made the flowers using foamiran (bought at crafteezee), colored with chalks and oil pastels in the colors I wanted and cut out using different flowers dies.


I embellished the card with all kinds of materials, like fabric, pine cones, leaves, pearls and little micro beads.



Some of the embellishments are coated with copper wax, like the leaves, pearls and pine cones.

I would like to enter this card in these challenges:

I was inspired by the colors, the wood and the pinecones in this moodboard.

Crafteezee challenge - anything but a card

Hello friends, it's time for a new challenge over at Crafteezee. The theme this month is anything but a card. I've created a travel keepsake box using the Wanderlust Papers from Mintay.


I started by cutting 3 pieces of cardboard and gluing on the paper.
You have to keep a few mm distance between the pieces.


Here is how you glue the paper. With a bonefolder you smoothen the edges.


Then you glue on the inner piece and make a box for the inside.
The measurements of the box are about half a centimeter smaller then the cover.


 Here you can see that the inside of the keepsake box is decorated also.


I used heavy metal brads to hold the chord.


I embellished the front of the box with images from the Wanderlust collection and printed a suitable sentiment.

More wonderful projects on the Crafteezee blog.

I hope you play along this month for a chance to win a wonderful Crafteezee price.
