Kraft Week on the My Mum's Craft Shop blog

Hello Everyone! Happy Easter! Jane here today and our theme on the blog  this week is 'Kraft'. I have used lots of it on my card!  I have gone all pink and girly to balance out the Black and Kraft and have used the Pure Innocence Sassitude card as my focal image, she reminds me so much of lovely Goddaughter Poppy, and the Cheetah Background stamp to make the animal print background.


The pink paper is by American Crafts and has been in my stash for ages and I used it to paper piece the dress and bow too. The sentiment comes with the image and I added a little heart brad , a paper flower and some stick on gems to finish.



Here is a little close up of the image. I just love her little boots! They are so adorable! I hope you have a lovely Easter Sunday.

You're a Lifesaver

Happy Hump Day!!

I'm back with some more inspiration using products from My Mum's Craft Shop today!! :)

Sit back and enjoy this incredibly short blog post!


So I used some Neenah Solar White cardstock.
A bunch of inks - Memento Dew Drops and Versafine
.. and THIS awesome Wicked Nauticool stamp set from Paper Smooches,

I mean.. come on?! Cool no?!

I did challenge myself to use no patterned paper, but I couldn't help myself.. and these Paper Smooches sets lend them so well to paper piecing. I used an older My Minds Eye set with loads of scraps left.

Be sure to stop by the blog each day for more inspiration! :) xo

Quacky birthday!!!

Hello and welcome to our "free" week here at My Mum's Craft Shop blog.... 
If you are a canny crafter you will identify with me , when sometimes you can create a DT card, and have it pre-purposed... in this case for a special little girls birthday!!! 
Her favourite toy of the moment is a little yellow duck , which goes everywhere with her, so this is what I came up with.... 


This adorable fella is "Duck in boots"... from Some Odd Girl, and I have coloured him up with my markers....
The yummy papers, are a perfect team up for this card, and are my Mind's Eye Six by Six "Life of the party
I have used a couple of MFT die-namics dies, the scallop die and the looped border die . The sentiment was from my PC... 
Another quick make, and the perfect papers , once again , from My Mind's Eye, made it easy peasy!!! 
Have a super crafty day!!

Strawberry Tea toppers from The Hobby House

Hello Everyone! Jane here today and I am sharing a card I made with one of the lovely new toppers from The Hobby House. As you know, I do love my colouring but I also enjoy to use pre-coloured toppers sometimes to make quicker cards.



I have used a topper from the 'Strawberry tea' set which is available here from My Mum's Craft shop. The colours match really nicely with the new BoBunny 'Modern Miss' papers which I also used on my card. I inked around the edges of all the layers and the image before sewing around the edges and putting the card together.


I added a My Favourite Things sentiment onto a little die cut tag and added ribbon, a doily die cut and lots of paper flowers and little embellishments to tie in with the sewing theme.



Here is a close up of the lovely topper. She is simply adorable and I love the colour combination that was used to colour her in. I am really looking forward to using the rest of the toppers from this set.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday!
Jane
