My Mum's Craft Shop Design Team - May Project #2

Hi again everybody 💜

Yes, I'm here as promised with another of my My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team cards for you.  To create my CAS I simply used Brushos and the cute little dies from My Favorite Thing (MFT) called 'Birdhouses' When I looked at the dies I just felt that they needed to be made into silhouettes ---  so that's exactly what I did. I have to admit to loving the little bird sat on top of the houses - it's so sweet. There were 2 birds on my card but one seems to have flown away. Lol  I used Brushos for the background. Hope you like it.


 

Here's What I Did
The 6" x 4½" card base was cut to size to create a top folding card, then a piece of paper was glued to the front.  The background was created using Brushos, water and watercolour card, which was then die cut and added to a black die cut mat. The topper was glued flat to the card front.

The birdhouses were die cut from black card and white glitter card. The legs of the bird houses were cut from black card instead of the die cut ones to make them appear taller. The sentiment were die cut from white card and stamped in black ink. Everything was added to the card front using foam tape and glue. To complete the card I added a few sparkly sequins.

Here's What I Used
Stamps:  My Favorite Thing (MFT) 'Birdhouses' and  'Label Maker Sentimental'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Black Card, Watercolour Card, White Card, MFT 'Dot's & Stripes Confection' Paper Pad

Other: Brushos, Tonic Die Set, Archival Ink, Foam Tape,

If you wish to purchase any of the above items from My Mum's Craft Shop and an item is out of stock, simply email/ring the shop to make an order and Kitty will help you. Thank you.

Crafter's Companion Design Team - Glamour Collection Launch

Hi there

I thought you might like to see the cards I created for Crafter's Companion Main Design Team before I left. I designed them for Sara's Signature 'Glamour' Collection which was launched on Hochanda last week.

The first 5 were shown on several of the Hochanda shows by Sara, Debbie, Charlie and Hayley. I was as proud as punch :) I even had my camera out to take photos of the TV....sad I know (check the photos out below)! Lol 

The collection is beautiful and fab for proms, weddings or just girlie cards. I have listed all the products I used along with the links to the store. I apologies in advance as this post is pretty picture heavy. I hope you like them though.

For The Love Of Stamps By Hunkydory - May Launch

Hi everyone

As they say, as one door closes another one opens. Well this was the case with me, I stepped down from the Crafter's Companion Design Team last month after a year on the team. Then a few days afterwards I received an email inviting me to join 'For The Love Of Stamps' By Hunkydory Design Team. The work will involve stamping and colouring which one of my favourite things to do.

I have just recently worked on a few projects for the May launch today on Create & Craft today and tomorrow, so definitely have a peek and see if you can spot them. There should've been more cards, but unfortunately my mum was rushed into hospital a week ago so my time has been limited.

For The Love Of Stamps By Hunkydory - have such a vast range of stamps now, and anything from flowers to fish, from veg to vans...well you get the idea. For my cards I used the 'Vegetable stamp set' and the Beautifully Bright Paper Pad. You can buy the stamps from Hunkydory or Create & Craft.


To make my card, I used DL card base which I matted with patterned paper. The word 'Just' was printed directly onto some white card and cut to size, then the word 'veg' was die cut from it. The word 'veg' was die cut letter from green glitter card and thin foam and glued together. I stamped a few of the vegetable onto colouring card and coloured using Copics.  The white 'Just Veg' topper was added to the card front along with the die cut letter and cut out vegetables. To finish off enamel dots were added. 
To make my card, I used 6" x 6" square Kraft card base which I matted with patterned paper. I randomly stamped lots of the vegetables onto a cut down piece of Kraft card using brown ink, and coloured them with pencils. The sentiment was stamped in brown ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Everything was added to the card and to finish off enamel dots were added. 

To make my card, I used 5" x 5" scalloped card base which I matted with black card and patterned paper. I die cut a pece of white card and some patterned paper into a square, then stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The tomatoes were stamped twice, coloured with Copics then cut out. Glitter was added to the tomatoes to add a sparkle. Everything was attached to the card front using foam pads. To finish off I added black enamel dots, sequins and gems.

Here is a picture of the 'Just Veg' on Create & Craft on this (Saturday) afternoon.


Hope you like them.

Crafter's Companion - My News

Hi there

Despite my 'big new's' a couple of weeks ago I have decided to step down from the Crafter's Companion Main Design Team. I did think long and hard before stepping down, but I do feel this was the best decision all around.

I want to thank Crafter's Companion for putting their faith in me...but at the end it just wasn't for me. I wish both them, and all the Design Team continued success.

However, I did receive a fabulous bit of news the other day which I wasn't expecting....I have been invited to join The Hunkydory 'For The Love Of Stamps' Design Team. I looove stamps and colouring as you know, so as you can imagine I'm super excited. :) I will be creating projects using 'The Love Of Stamps' range to be seen in their magazine and on Create & Craft. So watch this space...and the TV.  :)

My Mum's Craft Shop DT - Up In The Air

Morning my lovelies 💜

I'm here with another My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you. I've chosen one of the new stamp releases from My Favorite Thing (MFT). The stamp set is called   'Up In The Air', and it contains lots of very cute animals and some lovely sentiments - I will definitely be using this set again for more projects.

For my CAS card I used Zig Color pens and Brushos in the background (my first time using them). You might need your sunglasses on for this one. Lol...I hope you like it!



 

A little close up for you

Here's What I Did
First I matted a 5" x 5" card blank with a piece of pattern paper. Next I die cut a piece of watercolour into an oval, and stamped the puppy head onto it. The puppy was stamped again onto the sticky end of a post-it note, and cut out to create a mask. The mask was used to cover the puppy's head and the hot air balloon was stamped over the top (this places the balloon behind the puppy). Once the ink was dry I painted the whole image with a masking fluid and left to dry. The sentiment was stamped beneath the balloon.
 
Using a couple of different brusho colours I lightly sprinkled them over the oval and spritzed it with water to make the colours move - I added more brusho where required. I took off any excess water using a piece of rolled up kitchen roll, and left it to dry out. The puppy and hot air balloon were coloured using watercolour pens; the yellow stripe on the balloon was pulled out using a glitter pen instead of water, and actual glitter was added to the white stripes.
 
The completed image was glued to a white die cut oval and attached to the card front using foam tape. To finish off I added a few pearls at the top and bottom of the card.

Here's What I Used
Stamps: My Favourite Thing  'Up In The Air'
Paper Pad: My Favourite Things 'Dots & Stripes Confection'
 
If you wish to purchase any of the above items from My Mum's Craft Shop and an item is out of stock it's because it's been very popular, so simply email/ring the shop to make an order. Thank you.

Other: Zig Color Pens (Pale Green, Light Green, Deep Green, Yellow, Beige, Flesh, Brown) White CS, Neenah CS, 5" x 5" Card Blank, Glitter, Tonic Oval Die Set, Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen, Foam Tape, Pearls, Pebeo Masking Fluid, Brushos (Lemon, Turquoise, Emerald Green), Post-it Note, Spritzer

My Mum's Craft Shop DT - Chatty Squidgy

Hi there everyone 💜

Today I'm here with another My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you. I've chosen one of the stamps from the gorgeous Stamping Bella Squidgy range. I just think that these little characters so sooo sweet. I've been wanting to colour up one of these little cuties for ages, but just haven't had the opportunity until now...so for my card I chose 'Chatty Squidgy.' and coloured her with Copics. To complete my card I used a few dies and a stencil from My Favorite Things (MFT).  Hope you like it.




A Little Close Up For You

Here's What I Did
First I stamped my image onto Neenah card and die cut it into a square and then cut another square from lilac card. The image was also stamped again onto a post-it note and cut out, this was then placed over the image to protect it. Using a stencil, pale pink ink was gently sponged through it making sure not to make it too dark. The stencil was carefully removed and the image was coloured using alcohol markers.

The completed image was added to the lilac mat, then attached to the card font using foam tape. Next the words 'Hi' and 'There' were die cut from  Neenah card stock and funky foam.  Before removing the die cut words from the Neenah card they were coloured using 2 different coloured marker pens (pink & lilac) - the top and bottom were coloured and blended to create an ombre effect. The finished words were glue to the funky foam and glitter was added to them - these were then added to the card front.

To finish off I added 3 lilac pearls to the bottom of the card, and a sprinkling of some sequin waste.

Here's What I Used
Stamps: Stamping Bella 'Chatty Squidgy'
Stencil: My Favourite Thing 'Radiating Rays'
Dies: My Favourite Thing 'Blueprints #8, My Favourite Things 'Hello There'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): 5" x 5" Scalloped Card Blank, Lilac Card, Neenah
Copics:  Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R30 / Hair - YR000, YR00, E13, E99 /  Dress & Bow - V000, V01, V04, V05, V09 / Shoes & Telephone - Y000, Y00, Y02, Y08, Y17
Other: Foam Tape, White Funky Foam, Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black, Lulu Lavender, Angel Pink), Post-it Note, Glitter, Lilac Pearls, Sponges, Sequin Waste

My Big News!

Good afternoon everyone

This is just a short post to let you in on my big news. Crafter's Companion 'Inspirers' Design Team was sadly dissolved at the end of March. Sob!! I am so sad not to be part of a fabulous Design Team with such a lovely bunch of talented and very supportive ladies, who have become dear friends.

Crafter's Companion Inspirers Design Team - March Project #3

Happy Mother's Day Everyone

To all the mum's out there, and for all the mum's we've loved and lost, we love you!


For my last March Crafter's Companion Design Team project I have made a Mother's Day card to celebrate this fabulous day. This card was made with my mum in mind, and it's going to be given to her later on today (I hope she likes it!). She has been so strong over the past 2 months after having open heart surgery at the age of 77. I have been taking care of her 24/7 at her home, and during this time we have had both challenging times and some funny moments which have made us closer. Thankfully she is now well on the way to recovery. So here's to my mum...I love you!

For my card today I used a Sheena Douglass flower die and a flower die from one of Sara's Signature collections, plus some mouldable foam which reacts to heat and makes the most beautiful flowers. Thanks for looking 💚





Here's What I Did
I used 7" x 7" scalloped card blank which I matted with peach card and patterned paper from the CD (Fabric Paper #13). I glued a die cut panel across the centre of the card with a small doily over the top of it.

Next I die cut 5 large flower shape from peach Foamiran using the Rosey Outlook die and 8 from the white Foamiran using the large and small Floral Duo dies. Using a warm iron I carefully placed the 1st die cut on the surface for a second using a wooden stick, then folded the petals up and twisted them and let to cool. I repeated the same process for all the large flowers then I carefully unfolded them and stretched out the individual petals. I started by creating a bud, this was done by hot gluing one of the flower shapes tightly around a small ball of kitchen foil and overlapping the petals to hide the foil. Using the hot glue gun again I glued the next flower die cut around the bud making sure I slightly offset the petals, and then repeated this for the next 3 layers to form the rose.

The small white flowers were first coloured on both sides using some oil pastels and a sponge. Next the flowers were held against the iron as before, then the petals were folded together and then twisted between my fingers, and left to cool. These were then unfolded and one flower was hot glued over the top of another, offsetting the petals to create 2 large and 2 small flowers.  The same process was used for the die cut leaves.

To assemble the card I added some die cut flourishes cut from green glitter card first, then the focal flower which was hot glued into place, and the small flowers were added on either side. Different sized pearls were glued around and inside the flowers. To finish off I added a computer generated greeting and a die cut sentiment.

Here's What I Used
Crafter's Companion Products: Sheena Douglass - Perfect Partners Country Cottage Die  'A Rosey Outlook',  Sara Signature Collection - English Country Garden 'Lazy Daisy' and 'Floral Duo', Die'sire 'Mam', Sara Signature Collection - Butterfly Lullaby 'Fancy Flourishes', Core'dinations 'Pastel' Paper Pad, Crafter's Inspiration Magazine #13 Freebie CD (Digital Papers)

My Mum's Craft Shop - Guest Designer Project #2

Hi everyone ---

I'm here this morning with another Guest Designer card for My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS). For my 2nd card I've chosen one of the new releases stamps from My Favorite Things (MFT), this little cute is called Pure Innocent 'Showering You With Love' and she's available from Kitty's shop. Hope you like it....thanks for looking 💖 (Blogger is having a little fun this morning, so sorry if my text and pics are a bit funny). x

 


 
 
 
Here's What I Did
First I die cut a square (mainly because I'm rubbish at cutting squares lol), then using my Misti I stamped the whole using waterproof ink. Next I painted over the little girl, umbrella and ducks with masking fluid (as an alternative you could create a paper masks).

When the fluid was dry I added distressing inks over the background starting off with my lightest colour finishing off with black. Using a brush I splattered water all over the square, left it for a minute and sponged off the excess with a paper towel. When the background was dry I gently rubbed off the masking fluid and coloured the image in with watercolour pens. I splattered clear glitter pen everywhere including the characters to give a rain effect.

The sentiment was stamped in the top right corner and embossed with white power. Then to finish off the whole scene was added to a black 5" x 5" card blank, and white dots were added to the umbrella and her wellies.

Here's What I Used
Stamps: My Favorite Things (MFT) Pure Innocent 'Showering You With Love'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Black Card, Crafter's Companion Watercolour Card, Green Glitter Card
Zig Clean Colour Pens: Flesh Color, Orange, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Beige, Pale Green, Light Green, Blue Gray, Light Gray, Persian Blue, Brown, Light Pink,

Crafter's Companion Inspirers Design Team - Project #2

Good morning everyone

Well I'm here today to share the 2nd of my March Crafter's Companion Design Team projects with you. Today's project celebrates Children's Craft Day, so in honour of this fabulous day I created a mini craft kit using Crafter's Companion products plus a few extras elements. For my kit I decided on a Mother's Day theme, and aimed my kit at children from 5+. For the full kit content please check below the photo. I have included a sample card in the pictures to show what could be made using some of the content.


The kit could easily be adopted for any occasion eg birthday, Christmas, kids parties, Halloween etc. All that is required is some glue and the kit will keep the kiddie winkies occupied for hours.  Just a thought...why not get a few ready for the next half term holidays (Easter).

You could also tweak my idea for a friend who you're trying to get into crafting....simply let your imagination go wild. Thanks for looking 💚


Here's What I Did
Using the patterned papers as a colour guide, I simply die cut lots of flower shapes and letters in different sizes and colours, and included a few gems, buttons and glitter. Everything was slipped inside the cellophane bag and added a bag topper which I created using a computer program. I did package the buttons, tiny die cuts, sequins and glitter separately so they didn't get lost or spilt. All that is required now is some wet glue or a glue stick, and a willing child. :)

Here's What I Used
Crafter's Companion Products: Sara Signature Collection 'English Country Garden' Paper Pad, Core'dinations 'Pastel & Brights' Pad', Die'sire 'Flowers 4', Sara Signature Collection - English Country Garden 'Floral Duo', Diamond Press 'Block Alpha Capitals', 'Love Today' and 'Enjoy the Ride', Die'sire 'Circles', Die'sire 'Mam', Crafter's Inspiration Freebies Issue '#13',

Other: Foam Pads, Gems, Pink Glitter, Sequins, Buttons, Doilies, Glitter Card, Cellophane Bag, Thin White Card, Computer Generated Bag Topper, Computer Generated Sentiments (to Mummy, Mum, Mam, Gran and Grandma), Coloured Card, 5" x 5" Square Card Blanks & Envelopes (2), Mini Butterfly Punch

Crafter's Companion 'Inspirers' Design Team Project #1

Good morning everyone

Well I'm here today to share the 1st of my March Crafter's Companion Design Team projects with you. Today I'm showing off one of the new stamps from Sheena Douglass's new range Temptingly Tropical. This particular stamp set is called 'Love Birds' surprisingly enough :)
Aren't they just the sweetest things, personally I think they would be great for an anniversary or simply to 'say I' love you'.  

I used Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils on this cute twosome along with a little distressing ink for the background. This is a big stamp as are the rest of the new launch stamps from Sheena, so great value for money and definitely worth checking out. Thanks for looking 💚




 
Here's What I Did
I used an A5 card blank which I matted with green card, then die cut flourishes from glitter card which I added to each corner.  Next the image and sentiment were stamped directly onto white colouring card, and again onto a post-it note which was carefully cut out to create a mask.  Using the mask over the birds and branch the cloud effect was created using a die cut cloud border and blue distressing ink.

Using a photo for reference the birds were coloured using pencils once the sky was dry.  After punching the corners of the completed picture it was matted and layered onto dark green card, and then added to the card base using foam tape. To finish off I added a few gems to the flourished corners.

Here's What I Used
Crafter's Companion Products: Sheena Douglass Temptingly Tropical 'Love Birds', Sara Signature Collection - Butterfly Lullaby 'Fancy Flourishes', Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils (Saddle Brown, Russet, Avocado, Ivy, Shamrock, Peacock Green, Amazon Green, Pear Green, Daffodil, Bumblebee, Daisy, Honey, Saffron, Tangerine, Poppy, Seal Grey, Denim Blue)

Other: Green Card, Green Glitter Card, Gems, Cloud Template, Tumbled Glass Distressing Ink, Corner Rounder

My Mum's Craft Shop Guest Designer Spot

Hello and good morning everyone ---

I'm here this morning feeling very excited, as I was asked to guest designer for My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) by Kitty, so of course I said yes. Woo hoo!
http://www.mymumscraftshop.co.uk/
For my 1st MMCS post I immediately chose a stamp from the Dreamerland Crafts range as they're so cute...I love the retro feel of them. The one I finally plumbed for is called 'Surrounded By Love, I adore the little puppies they're just so sweet. I used Spectrum Noir pens and Illustrator pens to colour with, some Echo Park patterned paper and a few MFT dies and stamps.  Thanks for looking 💖



 
Here's What I Did
I covered a 5" x 5" scalloped card blank with pretty patterned paper, leaving a slim border. Next I cut down a piece of strong white card and die cut a arch shaped in the centre and adding a stamped sentiment just below it.

Using the left over die cut arch clouds were added using a die cut cloud template and blue distressing ink. fancy circle from white card and 2 pieces of funky foam, these were all glued together to create a frame.

The image was stamped onto colouring card then coloured with alcohol pens. When the image was completed the top section was cut away, but making sure that a generous section was left on the bottom under the girl. The image was stamped again onto the same patterned paper I used previously, then pen was added to the dress and bow areas to create shade, then cut out. The two cut out pieces were paper pieced onto the coloured image and the whole image strip was glued behind the arched window.

The cloud arch was glued flat onto the card blank and the aperture panel containing the image was also added to the card front using foam tape. To complete the card, stamped and die cut paw prints were added along with a few enamel dots.


Here's What I Used
Stamps: Dreamerland Crafts 'Surrounded By Love', MFT 'BB You Have My Heart'
Dies: MFT 'BB You Have My Heart', MFT Die-namics 'Stitched Arch STAX', Lawn Fawn 'Puffy Clouds'
