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

Hi there everyone 💜

I'm here today to share my card for 'My Mum's Craft Shop' (MMCS) Design Team with you. As the shop will be closed for a few months there won't be anymore for a little while from MMCS. However I will still be making my projects using various products and techniques so I will share them as and when I've completed them. So I hope you keep visiting my blog. 😄

For my card today I've created a CAS card using dies and a stencil all from My Favorite Things, plus a few sequins.  Hope you like it.

Here's What I Did
First I cut down a piece of Kraft card 4¾" x 4¾" and added colour using a stencil and distressing ink. When dry the stencilled topper was matted onto some gold mirror card 5" x 5" and added to the 5¼" x 5¼" card base using foam tape. The word 'Friend was die cut from the same gold mirror card as the mat and glued in place on top of a strip of white parchment on the card front.

To completed the card, sequins were die cut from gold mirror card and added along with tiny silver and white sequins around the sentiment.

Here's What I Used
Stencil: My Favourite Thing 'Split Diagonal'
Dies: Die-namics My Favourite Thing 'Friends' and My Favourite Things 'Sequins'
Paper & Cardstock (CS):  5¼" x 5¼" Card Blank, Kraft Card, Gold Mirror Card

Other: Foam Tape, White Parchment, Tea dye Distressing Ink, Sequin

For The Love Of Stamps By Hunkydory - June Launch

Hi everyone

Today I'm sharing my 10 projects for the June launch of the 'For The Love Of Stamps' By Hunkydory Design Team. The stamps were launch over the weekend on Create & Craft - you might have spotted some of my samples.

The whole stamp collection from 'For The Love Of Stamps' By Hunkydory is just vast  In this month's launch there are stamps and stencils ranging from Fairgrounds to Football...there's something for everyone. For my cards I used the 'Fairground Fun' and 'Aloha' stamp set and stencils, plus the 'Beside the Seaside' stamp set and stencil which comes free with magazine #5. I also used the Adorable Scorable - Matt-tastic which is beautiful cardstock in lots of amazing colours. You can buy the FTLOS stamps & stencils I used and the rest of the collection direct from Hunkydory or Create & Craft either individually or as a bundle.

Now I know I normally give written instructions for every project I make, but I've decided that on the FTLOS projects I won't be. I will be using so many different techniques, materials and mediums that it would make the post incredibly long (which it is already) and very time-consuming to write. So if you want to know anything about any of the cards I've made please, please either email me, or leave me a comment and your email address and I'll send you all the details. :) However I will still list the products use. WARNING - this post is picture heavy.

My Mum's Craft Shop - June Project #1

Hi there everyone 💜

I'm here to share my June 'My Mum's Craft Shop' (MMCS) Design Team card with you. For my card today I decided to use the Snuggle Bunnies 'Snuggle Bunnies' stamp set from MFT and coloured them with Copics. I created the background using distressing inks and die cut tiny silver glitter stars. Hope you like it.

Here's What I Did
I used a 5" x 5" card blank and covered the front with black card. First I stamped my images onto Neenah card, coloured them with Copic pens and cut them out.

I die cut a circle from white card and sponged different distressing inks on top until I achieved the look I wanted, when dry I die cut a shooting star at the top and attached it to a black circle mat.  The rabbit, stamped sentiment and lots of tiny silver stars and dots were glued onto the coloured circle topper.

The completed topper was adhered to a die cut fancy circle and attached to the card front. To finish off the little teddy bear was glued to the circle next to the rabbit.

Here's What I Used
Stamps: My Favorite Things 'Snuggle Bunnies' and 'Label Maker Sentiments' 

Other: 5" x 5" Card Blank, White Card, Matt Black Card, Silver Glitter Card, Distressing Inks, Memento Ink, Lawn Fawn 'Starry Skies' Die, Tattered Lace 'Pearl Circles' and 'Circles' Dies, Creative Expression 'Double Pierced Circles', Archival Black Ink, Neenah Card, Water

Copics:  E50, 51, E53, E35, Y00, Y02, Y17

My Mum's craft Shop will be closing in a couple of weeks for a few months to carrying out refurbishments of both the stock and website. However keep your eyes peeled for some sale bargains on the website. :)
