Best Buds

Good morning everyone it's Shelly here, back after a bit of a break!

I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend, I don't know what it's like where you are but it's done nothing but rain here in the North East :-(

I am sure this card will brighten up your day though.

I've used the gorgeous Under the Sea pad from Doodlebug, I just love the bright candy colours of Doodlebug and this pad is no exception.  It's out of stock at the moment but you can email Kitty or leave a message in the Facebook Group to see when they will be back in stock.

For the large circle I've used the Stitched Circle Scallop Frames from Dienamics and embellished with some mini buttons.

The flower vase and sentiment stamp are both from the Paper Smooches Best Buds stamp set and I've coloured them with Copics to match the colourful papers and mounted them with foam pads.

Now if that doesn't cheer you up on this dreary day nothing will !

I hope you all enjoy what's left of the bank holiday weekend.

You're a hoot!

Good morning My Mum's Craft Shop fans.... 
A quick make from me today using the  fab new MFT stamp set called  "Forest Friends " . I used Kraft card as the base and covered with a sheet from the yummy "Proper Pinstripes" paper pad. I stamped on a second piece of Kraft using the little leaf and acorn from the Forest Friends set, and then embossed it with a clouds embossing folder from my stash. I die cut a branch,and popped the adorable little owl on, also from the stamp set. The sentiment was embossed using white embossing powder.
Altogether a quick make, I love it!!! 
Have a great day!!!

Stamping Bella - Leo the Balancing Stuffie

Hello everyone! It's Annette here today, and I've used the super cute Leo the Balancing Stuffie and a Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Smile Script Die to create this uber simple card.

I was really nervous about die cutting the image after I'd spent so long painting him, so instead I stamped the image a second time and coloured in a small portion to ensure that I cut the sentiment die straight before adding it on top of my main image.

You Are Unforgettable

Good Morning!
Kitty here, standing in for Jane as she's recovering from an op on her hand, bless her. She will be back crafting again soon so watch this space for her return :) Just thought I would share one of my magazine makes which was in Making Cards Magazine last month using lots of products from My Mums Craft Shop.
I created this card using the MFT Adorable Elephants Stamps which we  hope to have back in stock very soon. I coloured them with my Copics and using the matching dies to die cut them out. The sentiment is stamped onto black card and embossed with white embossing powder. The background was created with distress inks on some watercolour card. I die the background panel using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle Die-namics and mounted it onto my card blank. 

Thank you for stopping by :)

Mama Elephant Pandamonium

Happy Friday everyone!

Simonne here with a card to share using some yummy Mama Elephant goodies! 

Mama Elephant Stamps: Pandamonium
Mama Elephant Creative Cuts dies: Pandamonium

Mama Elephant Stamps: Labeled Messages
Mama Elephant Creative Cuts dies: Sew Fancy 
Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress ink: Picked Raspberry
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

I started off by covering my card front with some black & white striped paper. I then cut out the stitched panel from Bazzill Coconut Swirl cardstock using the largest die from the Sew Fancy die set.  I masked off a horizontal strip using post-it tape and then inked it using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, then fixed the panel to my card front.

I stamped one of the adorable pandas from Panadamonium in black ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Pandamonium dies.  Then I stamped one of the sentiments from Labeled Messages (love this set so much!) and cut that out by hand.  I placed both pieces onto my card front so that I could figure out where to stamp the stick from Pandamonium for the panda to hold the message. Once I'd done that, I fixed the panda and the sentiment to the card front using foam pads.

To finish, I added some stamped stars (smallest stars are from WPlus9 Unforgettable and the larger outline star is from Mama Elephant Tiny Heroes).

Remember, if you would like to purchase any products that are currently showing as "out of stock" in the MMCS store, simply call or send Kitty a message and she will be able to order them in for you!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
