Especially For You!

Good Morning!
I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year! 
Today I have a card using one of the latest Stamping Bella stamps. I was a little apprehensive about making a card which had my colouring as the main focus, but in the end I think it turned out okay! The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella but came with another character stamp.

Let it snow!

It's almost 2015!! Can you believe it? 

As a little Christmas wind down I have one last Christmas card to share with you all. This time I've used some more Hobby House toppers.

This time I used two cute snowmen from 



This cute couple have been paired up with some older Echo Park papers and a sentiment from Amy R Stamps. I added a doily behind the image panel and added a very glitzy double bow with some jingle bells and a burgundy button.

Love this! :) I hope you guys like these toppers too! xx

A last little Jingle!

Hello my lovelies.... just dashing in with a quick post before the big day...
 I have a last minute make with the super cute "Jingle all the way" set from MFT....... I LOVE this Santa!!!


I used my MFT Blueprints 20 die set for  the base, and second layer, then the Blueprints tag  builder die 1 . The sentiment is cut from the MFT Bright lights alpha set, I LOVE this set too!! 
I coloured Santa with my Spectrums and fussy cut him out, popping onto my tag with foam tape for a 3d effect. i have used those lush Bazzill papers from last year, believe it or not. They are still so up to date , and rich.
So, I do hope you have managed to get all your crafting done, and have cleared your desk ready for the family to arrive and the celebrations to begin.
So , just to wish you all  a very Happy Christmas , and a peaceful & healthy new year.

Cool Days Pop Up Card

Hey Guys!!!
Not long now till the big day!! Are you nearly ready????
I have a couple of last minute cards to make, but all in all I am about there....
So, with those last minute things in mind, I better get on with today's post!!!
 I was very brave and ventured to make a pop up card using a really easy tutorial, and this is the result! 



I have used the fabulously glittery Hels Cuppleditch "Winter Wonderland" papers to cover by box, and used snowflake die cuts, and the uber cute "Cool Days" stamp set from MFT. 
I stamped out and coloured up my little images, fussy cutting them out and popping them on strips of acetate for the "pop up" effect .....
To finish I added gems and a sentiment ... This little creation also fits into a 6x6 envelope when folded flat.
thanks for dropping in today , especially when we all have sooo much to do!!
 Have a super crafty day!
 hugs xx

Silent Night, Oh Holy Night

Morning guys!

With the big day drawing ever closer, I thought I'd be the perfect opportunity to share some more Christmas goodness with you all.

I created both of these cards using the same Hobby House topper pack.




I used Dovecraft Back to Basics Modern Christmas paper pack as the browns and olives matched the rich reds and ivorys from the toppers perfectly. I always have a hard time matching papers to my toppers but this worked out perfectly! :)

I used some twill? wired twill? ribbon twill? hah! from my stash, as well as some gold organza before adding a Whimsy sentiment and some liquid pearls.

Jobs a good'n. xx

Have a Cool Yule!

Hey Guys!
I have a new make to share here today... Using the the super cute and awesomely cool "Cool Days" stamp set from MFT.



 There is a bit of a story behind this fella.... 
I attempted to make a shaker card, and feeling rather pleased with my self at the finished result, I quickly realised that most of the contents to shake had fallen out!! Haha! I need more practice!!! 
but the look is kinda cool , doncha think?
 I used the bear from "Cool Days" stamp set, ans coloured him with my Spectrums and fussy cut him out, and I did the same with the mittens!! 
I used the Die-namics blueprints 20 to cut the base card, and the smaller die to cut the top layer out. I then positioned a circle die on this layer, and cut it out. I added a layer of acetate behind the circle, and surrounded it with foam tape, filling it with glitter and sequins. I closed the foam layer with the glitter with a layer of blue card stock, and adhered this to the front. I added the 2 images and a sentiment to the front, finishing with a few gems.... 
 I hope you like him???
 Check out the rest of the fabulous DT makes all this week from the rest of the team, and get your crafty shopping done whilst you're over at the shop too! 
 Have a super crafty day!
 Hugs ! xx

#So Fancy

Morning guys! 

I feel with it being the 1st of December I should have a Christmas creation to share with you all. Unfortunately that's not the case.

Instead I'm gonna share a couple of quick cards I created using a Waffle Flower Stamp set.

This is a new stamp company Kitty is carrying over at My Mum's Craft Shop. There is already a selection of sets available for you to purchase from the shop! Go grab yours.

Today I am using Bowtiful



I kept the cards pretty simple adding interest with silver embossing.

This is such a versatile set with a wide range of sentiments, I can't wait for the chance to use it more.

Be sure to stop by the My Mum's Craft Shop blog each day for inspiration using brand new products! xx
