Purrfect Day

I hope you are all enjoying the Paper Smooches themed week this week. I loved the girls creations so far and there are more fabulous ones to come, so watch this space! We have quite a few different Paper Smooches Stamp Sets in stock at the moment so it was pretty hard to choose which one to use..but i thought i would go for Nine Lives...
Paper Smooches Stamps are perfect for clean and simple cards as the designs are so cute they often don't need to much else. I kept the layout of this card pretty simple as i just the image and wanted it to stand out. The stamps are Nine Lives and the papers are Echo Park Love Story. I created the bow with Dienamics Dainty Bows (back in stock soon).

Thank you for stopping by today :)

Perpetual Bliss!

Hi! Hope you all had a great weekend full of plenty of crafting! 
Today is Day 2 of Paper Smooches Week.

Here is my offering using Perpetual Bliss...

This is such a versatile stamp set as it covers both male and female birthdays, quirky romantic cards and  friendship cards. I've decided to make a male birthday card using the Jukebox, musical notes, 10 cent pieces and one of the sentiments- all from the stamp set. I coloured the Jukebox with copics. The paper is MME Miss Caroline Fine and Dandy as I thought they had a retro feel to them. The sentiment was cut out using my trusty Fishtail Flags Stax Dienamics. Finished off with some ribbon from stash and nailheads.

Come back tomorrow for more Paper Smooches fun!

Paper Smooches week - Let the Good Times Roll!

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I am kicking off a Paper Smooches inspiration week on the My Mum's Craft Shop blog! We love Paper Smooches at My Mum's Craft shop and myself and the DT cannot wait to share our Paper Smooches projects with you this week. I have a little card to show you today which I made using the Paper Smooches Perpetual Bliss stamp set. I used papers from the Echo Park Scoot pad and die cut a topper using some Scalloped oval and oval nestabilities and stamped the sentiment and the musical notes from the stamp set. 

I stamped and coloured the vintage juke box and cut it out and added it to the card using foam pads. The little star was die cut using a dienamics die and I added a little button from my stash on top.

Here is a little close up of my topper and coloured in image. I added some stick on pearls as a finishing touch, Make sure you join us for all of next week for some more Paper Smooches inspiration and all comments left on the blog will be entered into a draw to win some candy! Have a lovely Sunday!

Doodle Garden Sweet Friend

Morning all :) 

Anyone else bored of the white stuff yet? Still, it's a good excuse to stay indoors and get creative. That's what I did yesterday afternoon...

I was desperate to ink up this scrummy Doodle Garden Stamp from My Favourite Things. This cutie is 'Sweet friend', but 'Far Out' and 'I'm Raptor Around Your Finger', from the same line, are equally delish and also patiently waiting for some lovin'! 

I've used My Minds Eye Lucky In Love Papers and  Die-Namics Heart Doily and Fishtail Flag Stax with some lace and seam binding to finish.

Well, if you'll excuse me, I have a date with some Carta Bella Papers...

I love you!

Helloooo! Hope you're all warm and snuggly in this snowy weather. 

Today I'm showcasing another CC Designs stamp which is in the SALE for a cheap-as-chips £3.50!! It's a really big stamp as well!

So the stamp I've used is CC Designs' Sweet November Patty coloured with copics. The stamp actually comes with little stars coming out of the rocket but I decided to cut these off as I wanted to use some little die-cut stars instead (made using the Dienamics Star Border). Paper is from the new Echo Park Love Story pad. Scalloped border is the Small Scallop Border Dienamic

Close up! x

Sweet Friend

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I have been playing with some of my new and old stash this week! I received my gorgeous new Doodle Garden Sweet Friend stamp last week and couldn't wait to colour her in as soon as I opened the packet! I coloured my image with Promarkers to match these lovely papers from My Mind's Eye which are from the Come Away with me pad.

I kept my layout simple and stamped the sentiment straight on to one of the backing papers. I added a punched border and a strip of gingham ribbon and some paper flowers and finished with some little gems and a little wooden heart button.

Here is a close up of my coloured image. I love her striped tights and cute little shoes! It's so lovely to have new stash to play with but it was also great fun rediscovering an older paper pad, I just love the colours in this one! I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Lollipop Lady!

Morning all :)

I hope you are snowed in, wherever you are today. Not because of the inconvenience, of course. But there's something rather nice about being holed up in your craft room, warm and snuggly, and watching the white stuff coming down outside.

So, continuing with our Lots of Layers theme this week, I thought I'd share my creation. This theme has been worrying me for weeks, but I have to say I rather enjoyed it when it came to it. What did I use? Great question, let me tell you... The image is a Stamping Bella Uptown Girls; Claudia has a Candy. The papers are My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing Lavender, which has been my go to pad lately for anything pretty and girly. And my latest Die love? (I know, I'm soooooo fickle.) Die-Namics Heart Stax. At the risk of pulling a pun... I luuuuuuuuuurve them!

And that's all from me today, Peeps... Stay warm and stay safe.

Today is Day 2 of our themed week of "LOTS OF LAYERS" and I've decided to showcase some products that Kitty has got in the SALE at the moment.

To banish the winter blues, I decided to use this cute CC Designs image called Sweet November Lily...

Can you believe that Kitty has got this in the sale for a ridiculously cheap £3.50?!!! I coloured her with copics and added a lyra pencil sand shadow at her feet. Papers are American Crafts Shoreline and are also in the sale for £3.50. I then added some details with various Die-namics- SunshineCatch a Wave and Fishtail Flags Stax. Sentiments are MFT.

My Mum's Craft Shop Theme Week - Lots of layers

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I am starting off another themed week on the My Mum's Craft Shop blog. Our theme this week is 'Lots of layers' and I have plenty on my card today! I have used My  Mind's Eye papers from the 'Lucky in Love' pad and matted and layered them onto aqua Bazzill card adding stitching around the edges. 

I coloured the adorable Princess Tia stamp from Some Odd Girl with my Promarkers and then cut her out leaving a small border before adding her to my card with foam pads. I added a lovely girly pink bow and lots of flowers.

Here is a close up of my coloured in image. I used glitter embossing powder to emboss her crown and also used this on the little Chipboard crown I added to the card. I finished with a lovely spotty button and some stick on gems. Make sure you check back on the blog next week for lots of inspiration from the DT. Have a lovely Sunday!

Getting Inky

Morning All :)

I felt like getting the inky stuff out and making a mess, so I did! And this is what I came up with. I've used a new die from La-La Land Crafts, but you could use Memory Box Chloe Stem or Dancing Tulips for a similar effect.

And what's the inky stuff? Let me tell you... Inkylicious Sprinkys in Amethyst and Capri Blue, dabbed on with Inkylicious Ink Dusters. (Brilliant for tickling your son too!) The stamps are Inkylicious French Script and Prairie Flowers. And I also used a stencil from Dylusions, Chequered Spots.

That's about all from me today. Hope you have a great weekend...

Well i think it's safe to say that i am totally hooked and loving Paper Smooches!
Infact i think i have used them every week for the past month or so, hehe.
So today i thought i would create a funky boys card...


How cute are these dinosaurs right? Well you could have guessed that as they are actually called Cutesaurus, perfect eh? This is one of the new January releases, we have all the latest releases all available here. All i added was some washi tape, twine and couple of black rhinestines.

Catch you all soon :)

Hallo! Today I am showcasing some items from the December MFT release.

I have used Pure Innocence Cute-a-tude coloured with copics and then paper pieced her dress. I cut her out using the new release Insert It Instaframe Dienamic and stamped "smile" from the Document It Captured Memories stamp set. I also used the adorable Accent It Cute Cameras to make the little polaroid camera. The flower was made using the Rolled Daisy die- I know I'm going to use this die loads and finally the Small Scalloped Border Dienamic for the bottom border. Some of these Dienamics are out of stock at the mo but I've been reliably informed that a new arrival of stock is coming this week! The paper is new from the latest Echo Park pad Love Story.

Close up. Love her attitude! x

I Believe in Angels....

Hello Everyone! Jane here today with a little card I have made with some of my gorgeous goodies from My Mum's Craft Shop. I have made a card using the adorable Pure Innocence Angel stamp which is available here. I paper pieced and coloured the image with my Promarkers and then added some glitter to her wings and halo.

The papers I have used are from the My Mind's Eye 'The Sweetest Thing Lavender' pad. I added some flowers from my stash and a scalloped velvet ribbon and stamped the sentiment onto a Dienamics fishtail banner.

Here is a close up of the coloured in image. I added some shading to the paper piecing with my Promarkers and then die cut the image with a circle die and then added distress inks before removing the die. I finished with a little wooden button that I also coloured with the distress ink and tied it with some twine. I hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Happy New Year everyone :) 

Have you been enjoying Celebration week here at My Mum's Craft Shop? Don't forget we've started running Challenges now too, our first is Anything Goes, you can find all the details here.

This is the first card I made this year and I've used on of my favourite A La Mode Stamps from My Favourite Things. The papers are My Minds Eye Lost and Found 3 Oliver. I really like the colours. You can use them for girls or boys! The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. I use this sentiment set soooooooooooo much. And I couldn't make something without using my Die-Namics Fishtail Flag Stax, could I?!

Well, that's all from me today Folks, I'm on a mission to get all the leftover Quality Street out of the house...
