My Mum's Craft Shop DT Card - Birthday Girl

Saturday, 18 July 2015
Morning everyone, long time no see.  I have had so much going on lately I am afraid I have severely neglected my little blog.

Never mind pull up a chair I am back now with my DT card for My Mum's Craft Shop and this week I have chosen to do a scallop circle easel style design using the cute little Birthday Girl stamp by A Random Fan.

I have coloured her with copics to match my papers which are from the Patriotic Picnic pad by Doodlebug.  I've matted everything onto navy blue cardstock and added a bit of faux stitching here and there to make the layers pop a bit more.

I can't for the life of me remember where I got the letter dies from, I have had them so long (but to be fair, I can't remember what I did yesterday most of the time so it isn't surprising really).

The large flower is from the Dienamics Blueprints 14 die set and to finish I have added some Craftwork Cards Candi, buttons and a little ribbon bow.

Well that's all from me today, we are off to shop for some camping stuff for our holidays soon...can't wait!

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday

The Papernest Dolls Challenge #7 - Ballgown Ella

Monday, 6 July 2015
Good morning everyone

It's time for a brand new challenge over at the Papernest Dolls and I am excited to show you my first Design Team card for them.  The theme as always is 'Anything Goes'

I decided to make a stepper card which is a bit out of my comfort zone but it did give me a chance to use lots of layers and detail,

I have used the gorgeous Ballgown Ella stamp from the Fairytale Collection and she was an absolute dream to colour but I definitely need some more practice on colouring folds !

I have added a full list of supplies at the end of my post.

I've used faux stitching around most of my panels and 'stitched' with a turquoise gel pen so it stands out.

I have also embossed the white cardstock panel with hearts although it doesn't show up very well in the picture.

If you fancy joining us this month pop over to the blog where you can also check out what the rest of the DT have created for you.  You could be in with a chance of winning a prize and we love to see your creations.

That's all from me for today, have a great Monday everyone

Fiona Loves Flowers - My Mum's Craft Shop DT Card

Saturday, 4 July 2015
Morning lovelies how are you all on this lovely Saturday morning?

Today is my first post as part of the My Mum's Craft Shop DT and I am so pleased to be back on the team.

Unfortunately I haven't had as much time as I hoped this week as my boss is in Intensive Care following surgery and as her business partner is her husband I have been holding the fort at work so it's been a bit manic to say the least!

However, I managed to fit in some crafting yesterday when I was 'working from home' ;-)

I have stuck to quite a simple layout for my card and I have used the gorgeous Fiona Loves Flowers Uptown Girl stamp which I have coloured with Copics.

The patterned paper panels are from the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Dots and Stripes pad and the sentiment is from the brand new Mama Elephant Sunday Sentiments stamp set.

I have finished off with some buttons, ribbon and self adhesive pearls.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend.

All Dressed Up Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes

Thursday, 2 July 2015
Hi there everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at All Dressed Up and as always our theme is 'Anything Goes'.  We always love seeing your creations so please do pop over and join us, you never know you might just bag yourself a prize ;-)

For my card I have chosen the gorgeous Love Is stamp which is available here....isn't it just so cute!  I printed my image off a little bit larger than I had wanted so I went for an 8 x 8 size card so I could fit all my layers on.

The image is coloured with Copics and I've added some extra spots onto the little girl's hat with my brown gel pen.  I have also doodled a border around the side of my image instead of stitching for a change.

I intended to colour the background but time got away from me and then it totally went out of my many things seem to do these days lol.

So if you fancy giving the challenge a go just pop over to the blog and link up your creation (using an All Dressed Up image) for us to see.  I for one look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Details of the supplies I used on my card are all listed below.

Dovecraft Sweet Paris 8 x 8 paper pad
Image from All Dressed Up
Sentiment from Mama Elephant 'Sunday Sentiments' stamp set
Dienamics Blueprints 14 (for flower, button and leaves)
Ribbon and twine from my stash

That's all from me for now, have a lovely evening
