From My Barn

Hello all :)
It's Kitty here and today I thought I would share a bright fun card with you all. As you may know my fav brand is MFT Stamps so of course I just had to share this cute card...
I used quite a few MFT products on this card, The Whole Herd Stamp Set, Grassy Fields, Barn
and Inside Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX. We do have more of all of these on order so fingers crossed the ones that are out of stock will be back in soon.

Have a Flash Birthday

Hey everyone how are you doing?  Is anyone else glad to see the back of January, what a long month it has been!

It's Shelly here today with my latest card for and I've made one of my least favourite type of cards....male birthday lol.  I tend to avoid them at all costs but this stamp is so cute that it was actually a pleasure.

The papers are from the Doodlebug Patriotic Picnic pad available here and everything has been die cut using the Dienamics Blueprints 1 collection available here.  I absolutely love the Blueprints dies, they are so versatile and great if you need a card fairly quickly.

I've matted some of my panels onto blue and red cardstock just to give a bit more pop and I've added a couple of little elements of my own along with some buttons to embellish.

This little cute is called Flash and I've coloured him in with Copics and mounted him into the corner of my card using foam pads.

Finally I've stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sweet Safari MFT stamp set and voila!

Keep popping over to the shop as Kitty has gorgeous new goodies arriving every day and you don't want to miss out.

Until next time, have a great day.

How cute is this little kitten? Just gorgeous right? This kitty is from the I Knead You Stamp Set by My Favorite Things. The sentiment is also from this set. I coloured her up with my Copic Pens. I also used the Paw Print Background Stamp, Stencil and an embossing folder. I added some doodles, twine and pearls to finish.

Love is in the air!

Hello Everyone! I hope you are well. Ja here today! I rediscovered an old Friend today for my DT card for My Mum's Craft Shop. I have always been a big fan of the My Favourite things 'Pure Innocence' range and used the adorable 'I heart you' stamp on my card this week. It is available here from My Mum's Craft Shop. I teamed the image with My Favourite things Painted Prints Smitten papers.

 I coloured the image and paper pieced the skirt, then cut it out leaving a small border before adding it to the card. The layout is very simple and I added a sentiment from the stamp set.

The Pure Innocence images are so adorable and I love colouring them in, I gave this one red shoes as everyone should have at least one paiir of red shoes! To finish my card, I added some red heart buttons and a gems and a tiny paper flower. I hope you have a lovely Tuesday!

Birthday Blimps

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday !  It's Shelly up on the blog today showing you a new design featuring one of the brand new Woodware stamps which came out in January.

Introducing The Blimps !  Aren't they cute?  They come as three separate stamps so I've done a bit of masking to put them all together.

I started by stamping the centre Blimp twice and fussy cutting one out.  I've then layered this one over the top of the other one and fixed with a bit of masking tape before stamping the other Blimps at each side. Then remove the 'extra' centre Blimp and there you have it.

I've coloured them all in with Copics and mounted my panel onto red cardstock to make it pop.

I promised myself I would start using papers from my growing scraps box and so I've cut all the triangles and flags from scraps and added some buttons to embellish.

I think these stamps are great for kid's birthday cards and this week I'm going to be working on some cards using the stamps individually.

That's it from me for today, I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday

Love You Doodle Bud Flowers

Hey there everyone and a belated Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you all had a fantastic time and that 2016 is a great year for you.

I had an extremely busy second half of the year with work in 2015 as my manager was in hospital for a long time so I picked up a lot of extra responsibility which meant my crafting had to give and I took a little break from the DT but thankfully things have settled down now and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.

My card for this week features the beautiful Doodle Pip flowers stamp set from WPlus9.  Unfortunately they are out of stock in the shop at the moment but if you email Kitty at My Mum's Craft Shop she will be able to order them in for you.  In the meantime check out the other gorgeous WPlus9 stamps which are available here

This is such a versatile set with loads of mix and match flowers and leaves which you can mask up and create some beautiful little scenes.

For this card I've basically stamped my flowers and fussy cut them to make a little focal point arrangement.  I've used one of the papers from the My Favourite Things Farm Fresh Gingham paper pad which is available here and die cut a circle using the Dienamics Jumbo Circle Peek a Boo Windows set available here

Rich bought me some watercolours for Christmas and I have been seeing so many beautiful watercolour backgrounds that I've been itching to have a go.  The background to the central circular die cut panel is one of my first efforts at messing about with them and I love the 'sunset' effect it gives!

The Love You sentiment is made with the Dienamics Love and Adore You text die and I've finished off with a couple of red self adhesive pearls in the bottom corner.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful Thursday.

Wild about You

Hello Everyone! Happy New Year!  Jane here today. I hope you are well and had a lovely Christmas and New Year, Mine was lovely, I spent lots of time with family and friends eating and drinking far too much and relaxing a lot too. I am back with a new card made with some lovely new stamps and papers from My Favourite things.

The stamps are from the 'Sweet Safari' set which is available here from My Mum's Craft shop and the papers are from the Wild thing pad. I love the papers in this set, they are so versatile.

I added some stamped paper pieced leaves behind the sentiment and some hemp ribbon as well as some tiny wooden heart buttons and a stick on pearl from my stash. I hope you have a lovely Tuesday!
