You're a Lifesaver

Happy Hump Day!!

I'm back with some more inspiration using products from My Mum's Craft Shop today!! :)

Sit back and enjoy this incredibly short blog post!

So I used some Neenah Solar White cardstock.
A bunch of inks - Memento Dew Drops and Versafine
.. and THIS awesome Wicked Nauticool stamp set from Paper Smooches,

I mean.. come on?! Cool no?!

I did challenge myself to use no patterned paper, but I couldn't help myself.. and these Paper Smooches sets lend them so well to paper piecing. I used an older My Minds Eye set with loads of scraps left.

Be sure to stop by the blog each day for more inspiration! :) xo

Nanna, on Mother's Day

Morning guys! :) Let's make this another quick one.

I made a card similar to this last year with a big 'MUM' as the focus. This time round I adapted, and used a bolder colour palette. 

I cut NANNA on my Cameo and added an outline. I used Lawn Fawn stamps to create the rest of the sentiment and a Paper Smooches banner which I fussy cut myself. 

As for embellishments, I brought out my Papermania paper flowers, some Hobby House buttons and some gorgeous lilac ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. I finished off the card with a sprinkling of Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

Lovely jubly. :)

Mother's Wreath

Well, it's a sad, sad story - but alas.. a fortnight has passed since Mother's Day.. and I'm still filling your eyes with Mother's Day creations. I'm so sorry! Only a few more to go though.. LOL! Maybe I shoulda started posting them a little earlier - my bad. I shall take this into consideration for next year.. promise!!

This was a card I designed for the boys Mother on Mother's Day. A gorgeous wreath with squiggly flowers, cut on my Cameo of course! ;) I embossed the white background with a quilted pattern, added a sentiment using Clearly Besotted and Paper Smooches stamps and voila. Done! :)

With Love, Mom

When I said we were done with Mother's Day cards.. I lied.. *grin*

I hope you guys don't get sick of all the pink and froofroo, I know it's not really what my blog is known for.. LOL!! So onwards..

I still have a few designs to share with you all. This being the first. 

Cake. Pink. Froofroo!! I had a blast colouring up that cake - (IF ANYONE KNOWS WHO MAKES THAT STAMP PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I have no packaging for it!)

I went a little crazy with my Fireworks! Added a bunch of buttons and liquid pearls and all the usual goodness!!

That's all I got today.. but I'll be back! xo

Yoohoo!! Happy Hump Day everyone. :)

I've got a SPRING COLOURS card to share with you all today as part of my inspiration for My Mum's Craft Shop

I used some of my favourite supplies this week. 

I used the Tiddly Inks - Fairy Tenderhearted digi, but you can find the clear stamp in the shop.
Avery Elle - Petals and Stems

I then added a fabric flower, a crochet flower, a pink SU! brad, some liquid pearls and that was me! :)

Thank you for stopping by today! xo
