Songs of Winter!

Good Morning!
Natalie here and I have an extra card to share with you all today. 
This card is something a little different for me, yes it is Clean & Simple but the stamp set is different to what I am used to. 
The bird is actually made up of 4 different stamps, each being a different 'layer', the branch and berries are also separate. Perfect if you have ink pads in various shades of the same colour!

This stamp set is called 'Winter Cardinal' and can be found over at the MMCS website HERE.

Belated Birthday!

Adorable Elephants



Good Morning MMCS fans! 
I could not wait to share the new "Adorable Elephants" stamps from the latest release from MFT 
This make also feature the new Watercolour stripes stamp from this release. I love the effect this gives, I think  I will be using it a lot!!!!
The base layers are cut from the "Blueprints 20 set" , and then I used the "Photo insta frame" die to make a shaker card, adding the word Baby from the "Bright lights " Alphabet die set. To finish I just dotted on a few gems .
Kinda cute , doncha think??? 
I hope you got your favs from the latest MFT release.. if not check out the store.. and treat yourself, after all it is nearly Christmas.
Have a great day! 
Hugs

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hello Everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? I nearly am. I have bought all my presents but there is still some time left for me to whip up some handmade cards from my Friends using some of the lovely Avery Elle Christmas Florals stamps from My Mum's Craft shop.
To make the card, I used a round die to trace a circle with pencil on to some white card as a starting point then stamped the sentiment into the middle of the circle. I then stamped the wreath starting with the lighter green leaved then stamping the darker ones over the top. I let it dry and then rubbed out my pencil lines.


I stamped some berries to which I added stick on gems then stamped some flowers on to scrap card and cut them out before adding them to the wreath with foam pads. I then finished with some gems and pearls and added the finished wreath to a card covered with spotty paper.
 I hope you have a lovely Friday and a lovely Weekend.

Merry & Bright

Hello, I thought I would share my cute little bunnies project that was recently featured in Making Cards Magazine and it uses lots of fab products from the MMCS Store.
How cute are these little bunnies? I loooove them. So I used quite a few products for this card. First up is the Lawn Fawn Snow Day Stamps which I stamped and coloured using my Copics. The papers are also from Lawn Fawn. The frame is WPlus 9 Sunshine Layers Die Set. The hills are made using Die-namics Stitched Snow Drifts. I also added some pearls and a ribbon bow to finish it off nicely.

All these products are available from My Mums Craft Shop.If any are out of stock please email us and we can order them in for you.
