Your future is bright.

Hello guys! Why do weeks off work zoom by at super sonic speed?! Meeehhh!! That phrase.. time flies when you're having fun! It most certainly does.

Today I'm popping in to share some INSPIRATION with you all using products you can pick up at My Mum's Craft Shop

I spotted a card over on.. I wanna say Pinterest, but I'm not totally sure. I wish I had a link to give ya as it was a total inspiration, but.. I don't.


I started off with some Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Mustard Seed. I used some watercolour paper and created a little background with the DI and a tonne of water. I masked the edges of the watercolour paper with some washi tape to create a little white border.

I then stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things - Watts Up? stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink. 

I then went to town building up my little lightbulb using the Die-namics Lightbulb die! I created a white base, and added another vellum layer which I used to inlay the little heart design in the centre. Very cute.

Before adhering everything down, as a last finishing touch I took some more Mustard Seed DI and some various circles from My Favorite Things - Bokeh Builder and added them in a diagonal pattern down the watercolour panel.

I adhered everything to an orange matt (I desperately need some rolls of foam adhesive, that watercolour paper refused to lay flat).. and then added it to my card base. Oh, and I chucked some Doodlebug sequins onto the design too.

I really love how this card turned out. It's always good to get out of your comfort zone every now and again! Be sure to to stop by the blog for daily inspiration and the website is regularly updated with new products. xo

Wee stamps "I do" inspiration

Good morning My Mum's Craft Shop fans! Its my turn up front to share my make... and this week for our free theme , I created a wedding card.... 

                

I love these lush papers, and this cute stamp "I Do " from the Wee Stamps line, that you can get from Whimsy, are just the cutest!
I added a doily, some pearls and some stickles, after I had coloured them up with my Spectrums . I added punched flowers, and then finished with those Yummy Hobby House Floral boutique flowers...
