Hey guys!

Using the "Rolling Hills" die and the "Scallop circle" die I created a scene, and added the trees and skiing penguin using elements from the "Chill wishes " stamp and dies set. Just a little Glamour dust to finish, and voila!!

My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration- Delicate Pretty Poppies.

Hello my lovely crafty friends.... 
Today I am sharing my make for the My Mum's Craft Shop blog.
With Remembrance Sunday just around the corner, I decided to dig out my gorgeous "Delicate Pretty poppies " stamps from MFT. 

Its black card stock, usually reserved for matting and layering, but it perfect for those pencils, makes colours POP! 
I used my Colorblends 

emerald,ivy,sage,pistachio,espresso,antique rose,auburn.carmine,flame red,raspberry,maroon,white.

I added a sentiment from the set, and embossed in gold, and matted onto some gold card. 
So, I hope this has given you some inspiration to dig out your black cardstock and get colouring.
Have a great day!

Have a Magical birthday, Friend

Hello my lovely crafty friends.... 
Today I am sharing my make for the My Mum's Craft Shop blog.

I made this for my lovely friend, Jo, using a mix of all my MFT goodies, old & new .
I die cut my base with the Friend word die and then my papers, lining them up and trimming them. (I think my card stock was a little too thick to cut both together on this occasion. 
I created a base for my Magical unicorns, adding an accent detail with a die from my Blueprints 14 set. 
Then I die cut and stamped my Magical Unicorns, colouring and glittering them. 
To finish I cut the Happy birthday sentiment, in green glitter card, and added a couple of gems.
 thanks so much for popping by today.

My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration - Blow out your candles

Hello my lovely crafty friends.... 
Today I am sharing my make for the My Mum's Craft Shop blog.

I adore these Dragons from the "Magical Dragons " stamp set and I coloured him up to match the funky colours of my papers. 
The cake is from the "Interactive Cake die" and the sentiment from the "Make a wish " stamp set. 
I just finished with a few liquid pearls on the candles.

My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration - Monster Birthday

Hello my lovely crafty friends.... 
Today I am sharing my make for the My Mum's Craft Shop blog.
 I got to use my fav products once again, and I fell in love with these cute Monster Love stamps and die set.
I had to try and use the negative parts of this Split Chevron cover up die. I must admit it was a tad tricky, but the total effect is stunning. 
I dug out some of my unloved ink pads, and inked up the little critters in some fabby monster shades. The matching die set means they leave they neatest cut out shapes, and make 3d cute critters just easy peasy. I love MFT products because you just get the most amazing results, always!!! 

Now, I just need to go make some more, looking at this has sparked off my mojo!
Have a fun crafty day!
