Rudolph with a present on top

I've been playing with another of my Stamping Bella images, this time Rudolph with a Present on Top with a purple colour theme.

I've resisted from adding a lot of embellishments, but instead have included a huge organza bow from two-tone coloured ribbon and a sentiment die.

Ho Ho Ho!

Hello all, Kitty here :) 
I just thought I would post this here as I used lots of products from MMCS for this card. This colourful card was made for Crafts Beautiful Magazine using one of the latest Doodlebug Collections.
I love how this card turned out! I used the Here Comes Santa Paper Pad, Matt Enamel Dots and Die Cuts all available from My Mums Craft Shop. I also added some glitter to the hills and some twine for the bunting. You can see how I made this one by heading over to the Crafts Beautiful website.

Happy Wonderful Christmas!


Helllllooo! My lovely My Mum's craft Shop fans!!!!
Well the big day is almost here, and I am trying my hardest to get everything made, haha! Fat chance!!! 
but another Xmas card ticked off the list with these fabby MFT products. 
I die cut the sentiment using the fab "Happy Wonderful Christmas " die, showing the gorgeous gold glitter card behind it. 
The Elf is from the "Santa's Elves" stamp set, a classic from last year. I coloured him up and popped him on the from with a few yummy sparkly embellishments... Perfect!
check out the shop today, with all these pressies you're having to buy, you deserve one too, right??

Skating Penguins

I've used the same images from Stamping Bella for a simple set of cards and matching tags.  They're very CAS but quite effective with the use of Kraft coloured card. I hope you like them.  Although the image is called 'Skating Chicks' I've coloured them as penguins to show how versatile the images are.





And here are the tags:

Sweet Sloths

Hey there! welcome to My Mum's Craft shop blog.
My turn, once again to share my latest make  with some yummy MMCS goodies!
I had to have this cute "Sweet Sloth "stamp and die set from MFT. I have folks in my family circle that love these fellas....
I teamed them up with the Echo Park Jungle safari papers, and created a tree scene using the "Birch Tree" dies from MFT, along with the "Stitched Square "dies to create the frame. I finished with a sentiment from the stamp set! All done! 
Check all these goodies and more over at the Shop...
Have a great day crafting!

Rudolph Lights and Chicks

I'm in Christmas mode again today with a Stamping Bella image called Rudolph, the Christmas Lights and Chick.

As you can see the chicks are in disguise as penguins, which I think are more appropriate for a Christmas card!

When Santa got stuck up the chimney...


Hi everybody, here's my late DT card...

For today's card I have used this cute little Santa from Stamping Bella and is available from the My Mums Craft Shop right now....he was so easy to colour as there wasn't really much to colour.  So if you're looking for a quick Christmas Santa to colour then this is it!

Pop back tomorrow for more inspiration.

North Pole

Hello Everyone, Kelly Here to share some inspiration with you but This time I've made something instead of cards. I've been playing with some plastic baubles that I picked up from a local warehouse, but they are also available in Hobbycraft I think.. Anyway I decided to use the super cute topper from the Hobbyhouse - called North Pole. These little cutie are adorable and the smaller toppers on the sheet fit into the baubles perfectly.
 
 
I added some pom pom trim, lace and ribbon from my stash
 
 
 
 Will look forward to hanging these on my tree this year
Hugs Kelly
 
 
 
 

It's another Beautiful Day...

Hi folks, today I am sharing my DT tutorial!


When I last made a card using this stamp, I did receive lots of comments so as it is back in stock now over on the My Mum's Craft Shop store, I thought I would show you what I did.

First I cut a piece of watercolour card to size.

Using the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, I stamped up the flower and leaf using a veramark pad and then embossed the images with white embossing powder, I love white embossing with watercolouring.  I also masked off the flowers so that I could overlap the flowers...it's hard to see in this photo but you will see as we go on.

Using my Zig clean Color Brush pens I first started colouring the leaves, just started with some colour at the stem ends and worked the colour out with a waterbrush.

Next I started in the centre of one of the flowers and not really being too precise, I coloured some yellow in the centre of the flower.

I then added some pink around the outside edges, this makes it easy to pull the colour from the edges and to blend with the yellow.

Using my waterbrush, I blended the yellow and pink together and then did the came on the next flower.

I just kept using the same process until all the flowers had been coloured.

I then went over all flowers and leaves added more colour util I got the shade I wanted....these pens are so vibrant you don't actually need that much colour.

I like to add shading around the images but instead of a normal greyish shadow I pulled the colour out from the flowers.... I think this is quite effective and it's a great way to cover up colour that has gone over the outside of the images.

I then loaded my waterbrush with colour and slashed some little splodges of colour...and then once dry I added some black splodges.

Here's the finished card.

Chill Wishes



Hello my lovelies.... time for another MFT make from me today. I have a card from the new "Chill Wishes" stamp and die set.
I used an older first Edition paper pack  for the backing paper, and created the hills from the hill part in the "Rolling hills" die


I used the "Scalloped stitched circles" die to create the frame, and created a scene with elements from the "Chill Wishes" stamps set.
I 3d'd the cool skiing penguin onto the snowy hills.
I finished with a die cut using the  "Merry Christmas" dies using goldd glitter card to pick up the sparkle from the backing papers. 
I adore these super cool penguins... I hope you do too? 
Have a fun crafty day.

Hero Arts Layering Fall Trees

This is only the second 'layering' stamp I've bought, and I must admit that they're growing on me a bit.  My first was the GORGEOUS Altenew Lily which I liked so much I had to 'test' it four times!

This one is from Hero Arts (my first Hero Arts stamp actually) and is called Layering Fall Trees.  I've stamped it with a range of DI inks in orange and green, and painted a colourful ground beneath them to complete the scene.  I think they do look very autumnal!
