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!

MFT Die-namics Speech Bubbles - Happy Birthday!

Hey guys.... Another Tuesday has whizzed around, and I am here to share a little more inspiration here at MMCS..
 This is a quick and easy make using words dies from Mama Elephant and speech bubble dies from MFT..... 



I have used some paper scaraps , in this case Bo bunny, and cut out layers of the "Speech Bubbles Edgers " Die-namics die. I love these, they are so versatile.. I glued the layers together and cut out the square for the card front using my Blueprints 14 dies. I finished by adding the words from Mama Elephants "Happy" & "Birthday" dies... simple and really quick! 
 They ladies will have lots more inspiration through the week, and keep your eyes peeled for new goodies arriving at the my Mum's Craft Shop store daily 
Till next time... have a super crafty day.

Geek Is Chic

Today I am sharing my latest card that I made this afternoon while the girls were crafting away next to me. It's a quick and easy one using lots of MFT stash of course ;)
I of course had to use my fav colour combo of the moment - Yellow, Grey &  Black! I have had these MFT Stamps & Dies kicking around for a while but as usual they got hidden on my desk and I forgot about them! I created the background using a stencil, brush and black ink. The papers are by Kaisercraft. I die cut the Geek Is Chic Glasses from black card and coated them in Sakura 3D Glue for a lovely glossy effect. I also used the matching Geek Is Chic Stamps and added some Doodlebug Enamel Dots to finish. All these products are available from My Mums Craft Shop.

I will be back with more creations soon :)

Basik and Fishes

Hello Everyoone! I hope you are well and having a good week so far. Jane here today and I have been playing with some of the new Scrapberry stamps which have recently arrived at My Mum's Craft Shop.


The stamp I have used on my card is from the Basik and Fishes set which is available here from My Mum's Craft shop. I coloured Basik in with my Promarkers and used papers from the Doodlebug Hello Sunshine pad. I kept my layout simple and added a little fishbone charm and some of my favourite wooden stars and a very bright pink paper little paper flower..


Here is a close up of Basik. I stamped the sentiment onto a notepaper topper from the paper pad. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches. I hope you have a lovely Friday.

Mama Elephant - Up & Away

Hello again crafty peeps.
 time once again for a little Tuesday Inspiration using the sweet new stamps arriving from Mama Elephant...
this set is called "Up & Away" , and I can see so many uses for it , its a really exciting set.




Once again I have used my Die-namics "Blueprints 20" for the card base, and the first layer. I used a hand drawn stencil to create the clouds, and used a pale blue ink pad and sponge to dab on the backround. The speech bubble is from the new "Stitched bubble edges", and I stamped the sentiment from the "Up & Away" set onto this, added foam tape to layer this on top.
The I stamped out the cute monkey and balloons, colouring them in with my Spectrums, and cutting them out. I also 3d'd these into position using my Gel glue . 
Voila! Nice and simple, & really cayooot! 
 Thanks for popping by...
 Grab those cute new stamps whilst they are in store
