Coffee lovers spring blog hop

Hi, it's time for the coffee lovers spring bloghop. YEAH!

Spring Hop 2017

I've used some spring colors on my card and a very cute new digital stamp from craftin desert divas, espresso yourself.



First I've made the kitchen. I've created the image myself in Photoshop using free kitchen icons from flaticon. I've lined up all the different elements (cabinets, oven, tap and fridge) in photoshop to create a kitchen, printed it out and cut it with my scan and cut machine.
I did all the coloring with spectrum noir markers.

To create the floor I've used free digital checkers paper and for the tiling I've used digital brick paper from this Etsy shop.

The espresso machine and cups are digital stamps from craftin desert divas, aren't they cute?
There are many more coffee related NEW digital stamps in the craftin desert divas shop, you should check them out.

No automatic alt text available.

I've made the sentiment myself in paint.


I hope you like my little kitchen scene with the cute espresso machine.
Have fun hopping.

Hugs, Henriette.


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.
