Altenew: Vintage Flowers

Hi everyone!

Simonne here with a card using the gorgeous Altenew Vintage Flowers stamp set:


Supplies
Altenew: Vintage Flowers stamp set
Mama Elephant Stamps: Labeled Messages

Bazzill cardstock: Coconut Swirl
Memento ink: Lulu Lavender, Sweet Plum, Elderberry

New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Olive Grove
Verafine ink: Onyx Black

The Altenew Vintage Flowers stamp set: is a large 6x8" set containg lots of layering flower and leaf stamps.  The large roses on my card were created using the 3 stamps and 3 different colours of purple inks.  Personally, I like to stamp the lightes colour first and work through to the darkest colour.  Similarly, the leaves were created using 3 stamps and 3 different colours of green ink.  If you are a little stuck how to line up the different stamps, the Altenew website has a handy guide here.


Once I'd finished stamping, I added one of the stamped sentiments from the Mama Elephant Stamps: Labeled Messages, stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink.


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!

Hugs,

Magical Unicorns



Good morning  My Mum's Craft Shop fans...... I am a tad late (again) with my posting today, but wanted to share a super cute make with the latest Stamps release from MFT... I LOVE these Magical Unicorns 
I used some pretty fantasy papers, and my Blueprints 14 set to cut out the base layers, but then I cut the Die-namics Birthday Centerpieces into it to create a shaker card. 
Then I stamped out the adorable Unicorn and the clouds and rainbow (From the Magical Unicorns set) and popped them on top 3d style. Had to add a little Sparkle with my Sparkle pens though. 
hope you like it... All the MFT releases work so well together and create real quick makes... Check them out in the shop  now!!!
Have a fun day crafting!!

Beary Special Birthday

Hello.  I'm a tad late posting today, but better late than never!  :0)

I'm sharing an image that is new for me from Whipper Snapper called Beary Special and I love his cute face and little ears.  I've also used a new Die-Namics Sunny Skies die and mixed it in with some stitched clouds.

I've added some chalked clouds to my image using a home-made 'cloud' mask which you're welcome to download for free from my blog if you like it.

A Couple of Cards for Gamers

Good morning Debs here to share some inspiration for those tricky male cards using some fabulous stamps and dies from 


I love this set as it's just perfect for any of my 3 sons :o)
The FABULOUS game controller is from this set 


currently out of stock but sure to be restocked soon.
I drew around the outside of the dies to create a mat and layer - and I chose to do it in white and gold as Aaron had a custom controller made for Jack for Christmas last year in those colours and this card will be from Jack to Aaron for his birthday.
For this card I used the same stamp and die set together with MFT Blueprints 15
and the Design Paper is from this paper pad.

Thanks for popping by.

Have a fabulous day.

Hello...



Good morning folks, it fi here with todays inspiration!!

I am loving these MFT stamps right now...they can be so easy to use with great effects!

So first I inked up a piece of acetate with my watercolor pens and spritzed with water, I then stamped one of the MFT distressed pattern stamps into the ink and stamped it on to the watercolour card, I repeated the process using another colour.  Unfortunatley the stamps are not available but will be back in stock shortly!

I then stamped the flowers from the MFT Buildable Bouquet stamp set using black ink, the sentiment is from the Altenew Label Love set.

Thank you - you're the best!

Hi everyone!

Simonne here with a card following CAS(E) this Sketch #170 for my layout and Color Throwdown #390 challenge for the colour combination.


Supplies
Avery Elle Elle-ments Die: A Tag for All
Mama Elephant Stamps: Labeled Messages
My Favorite Things 6x6 Paper Pack - Proper Pinstripes

Lawn Fawn Dies: Stitched Borders
Versamagic ink: Night Sky

Doodlebug Sprinkles: Bumblebee
Bazzill cardstock: Coconut Swirl
Core'dinations cardstock: February Gold; Tim Holtz Distressed Sapphire

To start, I covered my card base in some golden yellow cardstock, and then added panels of navy striped paper from My Favorite Things 6x6 Paper Pack - Proper Pinstripes and white cardstock to create the layout. 


I added some stitched detail to the white panels using my Lawn Fawn Dies: Stitched Borders.  This is a very inexpensive set of 4 stitched border dies - running stitch, cross stitch, pierced and diagonal stitch.  They are perfect for adding detail to plain cardstock.




The "thank you" was die cut from some navy cardstock using one of the dies from the new Avery Elle Elle-ments Die: A Tag for All. This is an amazing die set and I can see me reaching for it every time I need a die-cut sentiment! I love companies who give you value for money, and Avery Elle has definitely done this by adding all those sentiment dies to the negative space of the surrounding large tag die. Finally, I added one of the stamped sentiments from the Mama Elephant Stamps: Labeled Messages


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!
