Oh go on then......Just a small piece!

Hi all

Lyndsey here with my regular Monday contribution to the MMCS Blog.

So this week our theme is Buttons & Ribbon, which suits me down to the ground. I love nothing more than adding a gorgeous bow to finish off my cards.

Anyway for me card today I have used a fabulous Stamping Bella image - Bianca loves her big cake - OMG!!! can you imagine having a cake that big you'd never eat it would ya lol!!.


I teamed the image with some fabby Echo Park - Sweet Girl papers and added a double bow using some gorgeous stripey ribbon. The bow was topped off with a cute Heart Button tied with twine and then I finished off with a selection of £1 Embelishments - Mini Flower Buttons, Clear Gem Dots and Mini Striped Candy Dots. The little fishtale banner in the top corner was cut using one of the dies in the Dienamics Blueprints 12.

Thank you for joining me here today, please do pop back throughout the week to see what creations my team mates have come up with.

Sending Smiles

Hello Peeps :)
I am back today with my latest creation for My Mums Craft Shop. I have got a right old big pile of lovely new stuff to use so i thought i would ink up my new Mama Elephant Stamps and how cute are they? I kept it very clean & simple...
For this card i used the Mama Elephant Up & Away Stamp Set and also the matching Up & Away Dies. I coloured them up with my beloved Copics and popped the monkey & balloons up on 3d foam pads to make them a bit more 3d. All i added was some plain card & kraft card.

Hope you like my clean & simple make today i am never very confident with them!

Thanks for stopping by today :)

Fabulous, Beautiful YOU!

Happy Hump Day!!


I started by masking my card base with a Chevron stencil from Studio Calico and I spritzed it with Water Cooler mist. I then added a strip of delicious patterned paper from My Mind's Eye - Here is Happy. LOVE this paper pack. My Mind's Eye NEVER fail to disappoint. 

I then coloured up the gorgeous Dare to be Gwen to match the papers using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. I then masked her off and stamped the sentiments which come in the set around her in different ink colours to act as a background. I've had this idea in my head since I first spied this set, and the lovely Faye or Fluff as she's known around these parts was a beaut and sent me her over, so I just HAD to try it out!

*keep it shhh, but I'm tryna sweet talk Kitty into stocking SOG again* 

I finished up with a fabric flower and paper flower from Prima, a resin daisy and a bunch of Hobbycraft Rhinestones.
Job. Done.


I'm lead to believe the lucky Kitty headed over to the NEC in Birmingham this weekend and picked up a bunch of goodies which should be appearing in the shop VERY soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those. You will NOT be disappointed! :)

Thank you for stopping by today. xo

Mirabelle Love

Hello Lovely Readers :)
Kitty here with my latest creation for you in our week's theme of love/valentines. I decided go go for some of the gorgeous new Mirabelle Collection to use for this weeks card. These images really are so beautiful and even more stunning in real life. Here's what i came up with...
So for this card i used the Mirabelle 6x6 Paper Pad & Decoupage Pad. I also used some of the Lace & Raffia. I added a few other bits too. This is really glittery in real life so i didn't want to go too overboard but blimey is it heavy! The papers in this range are such good quality and some are glittered and embossed - similar to first edition ones!

Thanks for looking :)

Love You

.. so my brain kinda works like this.

If at first something isn't really inspiring me - I leave it out on my desk, so it doesn't get lost at the bottom of a drawer. Then there is a gradual progression towards.. LOVING that product. I find.. if I leave it out for long enough.. one day.. BOOM some inspiration will hit me and I won't wanna stop.

Until I need the toilet. Or get thirsty.

That's kinda what happened with me and some older MFT sets over the weekend.

This is one of the more simple cards I created with
MFT Blooming Roses stamp set and matching


I used four things to create this card (apart from the essential tools, of course!):
cardstock, stamps, ink and an acrylic block. Couldn't get more stripped back than that! 
You could easily get a bunch of these going on a production line and have a tonne made up in no time!

To finish off this card, I used a sentiment from Avery Elle - Oh Happy Day. LOVE that font. Like. LOVE! When I grow up, I wanna be able to write like that! LOL!

That's it for today! Thank you for stopping by. xo

Oh, Happy Day!!

Morning friends. 

This week I thought I'd share Mother Goose's birthday card with you all!! It was her birthday earlier in the month. I was so tempted to include her age on this card, just to serve as a little reminder, but I knew I'd be posting it here at some point, so I wanted to save her a little embarrassment. Bless her.


So for this card I used:
and some delicious Echo Park papers


I coloured the adorable Elsie up using my ProMarkers and added a little cloudy sky in behind her. I was really pleased with how those clouds turned out - see, practice does pay off.

To create my clouds I simply sketch in a faint cloud outline then fill in my blue sky around it. I then go in with BG1, BG2 and BG3 to create some depth to the outlines of the clouds. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Monday. xo
