A Wee cutie- free week

Good morning MMCS fans!
I have my usual Tuesday make to share today, and I have used a Wee topper for this fast card....


The topper comes from the Rosetta set from Hobby House, the papers I have used are one of my favs... My Mind's Eye,Record it "Pretty Things" . I have distressed them a little more using my DI Walnut Stain.... I tucked a doily in behind the topper, and finished with some die cut roses made from the paper scraps. I hadn't used his die and had had it forever (shame on me) .. I really like the result, they took a little time, but I think I shall be making more .
So, I hope you like my offering today, there will be lots more inspiration this week. Keep popping back!!
 Have a super crafty day!
hugs xx

Wishing You The Best On Your Birthday!

Good Morning!
This week as you know all of the Design Team are using products by the brand My Favourite Things!
I kept today's card simple by stamping the sentiment in the centre then adding some Frantage and star embellishments. Although now after having a second look I wish I had moved the stars inwards a little bit so there isn't so much space between them and the sentiment, ho hum!
You can find the Stamp Set I used on today's card HERE.



INGREDIENTS -
MFT Stamp Set - 'Birthday Chalkboard Greetings'
Frantage Shabby White Embossing Powder
Brown Star Embellishments from my stash


INKS USED -
Archival Ink - Jet Black

Thanks for popping by,
HAPPY CRAFTING!

Birthday Wishes

Morning guys! :) It's time for some My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration for you all today, in the form of some My Favorite Things goodies!!

Short and sweet post, as this is scheduled and I wanna get my butt to bed! 


I used the new Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set to create the sentiment for the front of the card, which I stamped onto water colour paper I coloured with a wash of Distress Ink.

I then stamped and embossed some Sweet Roses and leaves and coloured those with some more Distress Inks before adding them to the bottom of the watercolour panel.

As a finishing touch, I added the watercolour panel to a slice of patterned paper from Echo Park We Are Family pack and added a bunch of Liquid Pearls in Onyx black around the outside.



I hope this encourages you to break out that collection of MFT I know you all have. Thanks for stopping by. xo

My Favourite Things - Oh Baby!

Hey guys.... 
fabulous to see you this morning.
WE have a My Favourite Things theme going this week at MY Mum's Craft Shop... and I LOVE that range!!! 
Now its kind of a CAS make today.. but here goes...




I have used some gorgeous glittery paper, this is a lovely soft green, with loadsa sparkle. Then I die cut the Die-namics Baby Bib, and added a button . Then I cut out the Baby wording from the fantastic "Bright Lights" alphabet die set... and popped them on. That's it, quick make, which would look equally as good in Blue pink, and even white... 
Check out the fabby ideas from the Dt all this week... and don't forget our monthly challenge too... IT's "Clean & Simple"... See ya there!
Hugs x
