Up in the air.

Hello My Mum's Craft Shop fans.
 Time for me to share my latest make with the new "Up in the air" stamp and die set from MFT.

I used the new pastel papers "Dots & Stripes confection" from MFT too! They are lush !The background was embossed with cute fluffy clouds from a CC Embossing folder.
The frames was created using the dies from the "Stitched Rounded Rectangles"  dies set. The sentiment was from the Up in the Air stamps and I stamped it onto a tag die from an earlier Blueprints die set. 

Hope you like it. There are so many cute stamps and elements from this set, I am sure you will be seeing more.before you go, don't forget to check out the shop!

My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration- Happy New Home

Hello guys! Here I am again with another make using some of the newest stuff from the MFT release. 
I had to have these really useful key and key fob dies... perfect for a New home card... 
the Die-namics Lock & Key die set help me create the perfect keyhole frame. I embossed the card with a wood effect die, and distressed it. This was a perfect opportunity to make a wee shaker card. I added the key and the fob from the Stitched Tiny Tags. Quite simple and quick to make. Hope you like it... 

Have a great day!

My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration - Whooo Loves Ya?

Hello  to you , lovely My Mum's Craft Shop fans! my turn today to share my latest make over on the Shop blog.
did you get chance to grab any of the latest MFT launch??? 
I had to have those "rounded rectangle frame" dies... they work just perfect creating a frame for you cards, or like today, a shaker card!!!!  as well as sequins & glitter, I used the components of the "Tag builder Blueprint 5"  to create the confetti. The largest Frame die in the set turns the whole card into a frame/shaker... it's just the perfect size. 

The Owl is from the DigiStamp Boutique "Sweet love owls" set ,and they are on offer at £1!!!!
 I coloured these in with my Spectrums/Illustrators. 
Check these and all the new arrivals in the shop, you will be glad you did .

My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration.

Hello  my lovely My Mum's Craft Shop fans.... today is my day to post my make for the shop blog.
I stumbled on a tutorial the other day to turn my 12 x12 papers into this gorgeous little gift bag ( with no waste!) using the We R Memory Keepers  envelope punch board.
I LOVE We r M K boards, I use them lots..... 

I also used the old fave  Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 5
 , and incorporated the Die-namics Stitched Heart Grid. If you notice, I made a closure for the bag using the tag once again , and it was the perfect size.... 
I think I am going to be making lots of these.
Hope you like it.

My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration.

Hello my lovely crafty friends! today is my turn over at the MMCS blog to share my latest make.... 
With Valentine's day not much of a heat beat away, I thought I would use some new MFT stash to create my card today. 
The gorge red heart paper came from the new MFT paper pad called  "Hearts & Stripes" , I layered on a white embossed layer , using the Crafters Companion In love  embossing folder. Then I  die cut in glittery black cs , the "Hugs word die" . I used a cute "Snuggle Bunny "stamp and die set from last year to create a lovey dovey scene... perfect!?! 
I coloured the bunnies in with my Illustrator pens
Don't forget to check out the SHOP, there's a whole treasure trove of goodies to be had...

Happy New Year....

Hello Crafty Friends.... Happy 2017!
I have been bad, bad bad on the blogging front. Caught a bit of a bug a few weeks back, and I have not been able to shake it! ..
so Christmas and New Year and work brings me to today! 
I missed blogging my MMCS make, and I need to do that first ...

I know.. its christmas... But...
 I have signed up to a card a week Xmas challenge, that will hopefully shape my Xmas card making a little. Lets hope ... 
The tag is made from Blueprints 6 ,and the sentiment from Merry Christmas word die. The reindeer is digi I must confess, but Torico went on to turn this and his friends into the Jingle all the way stamp set . 
I do hope you will forgive me... I do intend to blog better this year.... and I am gonna enter a couple of challenge with this one..
