Altenew Persian Motives

Hello my lovelies...
 Spring is truly around the corner, albeit a wee bit blustery today!
but, that won't stop me sharing these new floral stamps from Altenew .

Using Neenah Desert storm CS, I stamped one of the images from the "Persian Motives " set  a few times with Versamark, and embossed with white embossing powder.
I coloured them in with my Spectrum pens & pencils....
I matted this onto a kraft card base, and voila!!!Easy and very CAS. I hope you likey??

Don't Worry

It's a Clean and Simple kinda Monday here at Cartolinas.

I have a rare Monday off work, so I will be busying myself with colouring in and watching episodes of my fave series. Perhaps throw a couple David Attenborough documentaries in here and there.

Such a shame I have no chocolate to feast on!

Today, I'm popping in with some inspiration using goodies from

Kitty is working round the clock to bring us loads of new goodies, and she is not gonna disappoint!

Today I'm using a bunch of Mama Elephant products and my all time favourite die from MFT Die-namics.

Please be sure to stop by the blog for more daily inspiration! xx

I Knead You

Hello all!
Time once again for my inspirational make here at My Mum's Craft Shop blog.
I had to get those delightful kitty's in the new MFT "I knead you" stamp set , and use them straight away. Here's my take.... 

Using Kraft card, I created a C6 card base, and stamped that with the "Paw prints" background stamp..
I added kitty styled DP , and 3d'd that onto the base. I stamped out my Kitty from the  "I knead you" stamp set, colouring her up just like mine...and cut it out with the co-ordinating stamp set.... 
I used the speech bubble and purr sentiment  and used the same technique. I 3d'd these onto the card front , and finished used a sentient from the set. Puuurfect!
 I do hope you will keep checking back for more daily inspiration, and keep a beady eye on the Shop for the latest arrivals...
Have a fun, crafty day!
Hugs xx

You Da Bomb!

Today I have a quick card to share with you showcasing the fabulous new stamps by Your Next Stamp. It's a very CAS style card but I just LOVE these cute images...
For this card I used the Boom! Stamp Set by Your Next Stamp. The background I created using the Large Ink Splatter Stamp by Your Next Stamp too and I also added some black foiled dots too. I have drawn a border around the whole edge and added some Black Enamel Dots by Doodlebug. Simples!

Thank you for stopping by :)

Sending Big Bear Hugs

Hello Everyone! Jane here today with a card I have made using a stamp from one of my favourite ranges, the Pure Innocence stamps from My Favourite Things. This image is called Big Bear Hugs and is available here from My Mum's Craft Shop.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers to match the papers I used which are from the Carta Bella Pure Autumn pad which is available here. I added some flowers and ribbon from my stash and some stick on pearls to finish.

Here is a close up of my coloured image. I loved using these Autumnal colours and the papers are simply gorgeous! I hope you have a lovely Friday.

Mama Elephant- Shooting Stars

Hello my crafty friends...
 Time once again for another inspirational post here at MMCS. I have been lucky enough to play with the new Mama Elephant stamps recently, and I fell in love with the "Shooting stars" stamp set....

So, I started with an A6 card, landscape this time and matted the blue and stitched layers from the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 20 set.... I cut out the speech bubble using the MFT Die-namics "Photo Booth" dies. I aligned the sentiment from the Shooting stars set to go directly underneath. The stars themselves are from another ME die set called Stitched Skies... I cut a few random stars out with these. 
I added a few random blue gems and some stickles to finish... 
Just to add the girl is from the Shooting Stars set, stamped feintly and coloured using Distress Inks ... 
 I do hope I have given you a little inspiration, and you will check out all the goodies arriving instore.. They're too good to miss. 
Catch you next time!
 Hugs xxxx
