I spy with my little eye...

Morning all :)

... Something beginning with My Minds Eye! Winter Wonderland to be precise. But have you seen all the new MME pads in stock? Swooooon!

I've also used some of my other current favourites, but with all the new stuff coming, this will change, like, yesterday! The image is from The Hobby House Wee Stamps Toppers. The snowflake is Die-Namics Snowflake Doily,  and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes. Job done.

Talking of swooning, I'm off to have a looksie in Store. The JOFY Collection from Paper Artsy are now in stock, but flying out, and I need to decide which ones I can live without. Ahem!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for our new Challenge. See you there...

My Mind's Eye week at My Mum's Craft shop

Good Morning Everyone! Jane here today and we are starting another themed week at My Mum's Craft shop today. Our theme this week is a great one for me as it is 'My Mind's Eye Papers' and My Mind's Eye are my abosolute favourite paper manufacturer!

The papers from this pad are so versatile, I may have to treat myself to a new pad now mine is all gone.

The image which I coloured in with my Promarkers is a My favourite things 'A la mode' stamp. She is currently out of stock but you can find lots of great alternative images here.  The sentiment on my card is from a Paper Smooches set.

I added some pretty pink ribbon and lots of flowers to finish for a perfect girly card. Make sure you come back tomorrow for lots of My Mind's Eye inspiration make sure you take advantage of the

Prima Dolls

Morning All :)

I have got a MAJOR crush on Prima Marketing right now. In particular the Mixed Media Doll Stamps. And the latest Paper Pads. All of which have been flying out of Store faster than Kitty can get them into the country. And, I know what's coming later in the year. All I can say is... Swoooooooooooooooooon!

Now, you know me, I'm not one to get people into trouble, so I'll include a list of the goodies I've used downstairs and I'll say this, if they're in stock, grab 'em while you can. If they're not, hit that Notify button. They'll be back soon, but they won't be around for long...

Wednesday, 20 February 2013 colouring!!

Good morning bloggers and it's Wednesday which means it's my turn today.  So I thought I would share something a bit different today and not use a stamped image and just use dies.  It just goes to show how versatile these die-namics dies are when you can make a card just using them.

I had been eying up this little tree for a while, as I do like trees but couldn't think what I would use it for...anyway I decided to go ahead and buy it and I am so glad I did...I just love it!!

All dies are MFT die-namics...flat bottomed cloud, teardrop tree and the wonky can buy them all from the shop.

Check out all the new products that have been added to the shop....yummy!!

Umbrella Cards

Today i thought i would share some of my latest cards that have been in some magazines lately. Here is a project i made for Making Cards Magazine that was featured in the last issue Feb 2013.
These were of couse made featuring the gorgeous Dienamics Umbrella Die & Stamp Set. It comes with some lovely sentiments that can be used for any occasion really. I also used the Dienamics Framing Flourishes on the second one. All the papers are by First Edition. I kept them simple and clean as i am totally into that look right now and why not ;)

If you are after any Dienamics we will be ordering more again soon just email the shop with which ones you are after and we can add them to our order for you :)

Catch you all soon :)

Let's chat!

Sometimes it's cool to make a card- just because. Paper Smooches stamps are so fab for that because they're cool and quirky and easy to use...

Here I've used the telephone from the Perpetual Bliss set. I've paper pieced using Teresa Collins Spring Fling papers and added a copic shadow and wee crystal. I used a Mojo Monday sketch and created the banners using the Fishtail Flags Stax Dienamics. The sentiment comes with the stamp set. Finally finished with a bit of machine stitching and a gorgeous butterfly.

Read all about it!

Good Morning Everyone! Jane here today!  I hope you are well and having a good Weekend so far. Mine is busy but great fun! We went to see Paloma Faith last night, she was totally amazing! Today I am going to the Craft trade show at the NEC for a mooch about and will be taking part in a couple of workshops and meeting up with some of my lovely craft Friends. I have been playing with some of my new goodies this week and for my card today I used lots of papers from one of the brand new My Mind's Eye pads, the one I used is called 'Remarkable' and is available here. 

I coloured and paper pieced my Pure Innocence 'Read all about it' image and added her to my card with foam pads after I cut her out leaving a small border. I used lots of goodies from the Ribbon Girl to embellish my card.

Here is a little close up of my image. I would love a gingham chair like this one but I don't think it would last long with our dog! 
Have a great Sunday!

Let's get wild!

Hey peeps! It's Day 2 of our Valentine's/Love week! 

I thought I'd make something a bit quirky for you using MFT's A La Mode On Safari..

I coloured her with copics and mounted her on the Rounded Banner Stax Dienamics. The wild animal print papers are from Echo Park Love Story. The sentiment comes with the main stamp and is cut out using Say What? speech bubble Dienamic. The leaf vine is a PTI die but you could use the Vine Border Dienamic. Flowers are made using Rolled Daisy DienamicPearl hearts are from Hobby House. 

Close up!

Valentine's/Love theme week at My Mum's Craft shop

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and we are starting another themed week today at My Mum's Craft Shop. Our theme this week is 'Valentine's/Love'. There are lots of gorgeous love themed goodies in the shop at the moment so it was hard for me to pick which ones to use! I eventually settled on an adorable Pure Innocence stamp called 'Bear Hugs' and some Carta Bella papers from the 'Devoted' pad.

I stamped the sentiment from the set on a banner I cut using a Dienamics die and then added a heart cut from spotty paper using one of the dies from the Rustic Hearts set and topped it with a spotty button tied with twine.

Here is a close up of my coloured in image. I coloured her in with Promarkers and then paper pieced her dress using some of the hearts paper. I then cut her out leaving a small border before adding her to the card with foam pads. I finished with a little paper flower and a stick on pearl. Make sure you come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the DT! Have a lovely Sunday!

Morning All :) 

This little fella is one of the new Doodle Garden Range from last month's release at My Favourite Things. He's called Doodle Garden - I'm Raptor Around Your Finger. I wanted to use him on a boy card, but with a bit of a love twist, what with Valentines Day being round the corner and all.

First he needed some boyish papers, so I went for Echo Park Scoot. Have you seen the new papers from My Minds Eye? There are six pads in all, but there's a really cute boy pad, Boy Crazy and a girl version, My Girl. Soooooo cute.

Of course a card featuring a MTF stamp wouldn't be complete without lashings of Die-Namics and I don't like to let you down, so I used Die-Namics Small Scallop Border, Fishtail Flag Stax and Heart Stax. Sorted!

Have a great weekend...

Basket Case

Morning All :)

I am the world's worst box maker. I don't know how I do it, but I cannot get a straight edge. So I was really excited to see the Woven Basket and Trapezoid Treat Box Dies come out earlier this week. And I wanted to show you, that making a treat box, really is as easy as...




Add some Die-Namics Rustic Hearts and Carta Bella Devoted Papers and you've got Valentines Day covered:

Add a fancy cut Wild Rose Studio Milton and you've got a birthday or Mothers Day:

Some birthday wishes...

Morning peeps...
It's the middle of the week and my first posting and it's a scheduled you have already been inspired by some of my teamies this week and there's still more to come.
So I wanted to make a good impression for my first post and I have gone and used a stamp which is out of stock in the shop at the moment however there's a few other Stamping Bellas and all the new ones will be here when they are launched so watch this space!!

Again I think these stamps are so versatile and easy to colour but after seeing Faye's fabby paper piecing...I decided to try the same although I did have to colour her skinny little legs!!

Now the dies I have used are hybrid rolled rose and fancy flourish...they are a great combination and I just love them....have you seen the new die-mics which arrived in the shop this week?? 
Pop over the the shop and check out the latest arrivals..fab or what!

Today is the new release day at MFT and yes we have all the stamps & dies in stock now :) I got to have a play with this new cutie....
 This is one of the new Doodle Garden Stamps called Springtime Wishes. As soon as i saw her i just knew i had to get her. I didn't have much time last night to create so kept this one quite simple. The papers are My Mind's Eye and i used the new Lattice Fence Dienamics Die.

Hope you like my creation for today!
