My Mum's Craft Shop Design Team - May Project #2

Hi again everybody 💜

Yes, I'm here as promised with another of my My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team cards for you.  To create my CAS I simply used Brushos and the cute little dies from My Favorite Thing (MFT) called 'Birdhouses' When I looked at the dies I just felt that they needed to be made into silhouettes ---  so that's exactly what I did. I have to admit to loving the little bird sat on top of the houses - it's so sweet. There were 2 birds on my card but one seems to have flown away. Lol  I used Brushos for the background. Hope you like it.


 

Here's What I Did
The 6" x 4½" card base was cut to size to create a top folding card, then a piece of paper was glued to the front.  The background was created using Brushos, water and watercolour card, which was then die cut and added to a black die cut mat. The topper was glued flat to the card front.

The birdhouses were die cut from black card and white glitter card. The legs of the bird houses were cut from black card instead of the die cut ones to make them appear taller. The sentiment were die cut from white card and stamped in black ink. Everything was added to the card front using foam tape and glue. To complete the card I added a few sparkly sequins.

Here's What I Used
Stamps:  My Favorite Thing (MFT) 'Birdhouses' and  'Label Maker Sentimental'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Black Card, Watercolour Card, White Card, MFT 'Dot's & Stripes Confection' Paper Pad

Other: Brushos, Tonic Die Set, Archival Ink, Foam Tape,

MY Mum's Craft Shop Design Team - May Project #1

Hi everyone 💜

I'm here with an extra My Mum's Craft Shop (MMCS) Design Team card for you and it's a little earlier than normal. I will be posting another card on Thursday which is my normal DT day - so watch this space. For my card today I've chosen one of the May launch stamp sets from My Favorite Thing (MFT), it's called 'Mermazing'. I just think this set is absolutely gorgeous - the mermaids and little extras are so sweet. I used Brushos for the background and coloured all the images with Copics. Hope you like it.



 
Here's What I Did
The 6" x 4½" card base was cut to size to create a top folding card, then a piece of black card was cut to size and glued to the front.  The background was created using Brushos,water and watercolour card; the seaweed, fish and rocks were stamped over the top using coloured ink. Using different sized circle stamps I added bubbles using white paint, when everything was dry a sentiment was stamped with black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  the completed background was cut to size and added to the card front.

The mermaids, turtle and clown fish were stamped onto Neenah card and coloured using Copics, glitter pen were added to the mermaid's tails and tops. All the images were then cut out and added to the card front - some where glued flat and some were raised up using foam tape. To complete the card I added a few sequins.

Crafter's Companion Design Team - Glamour Collection Launch

Hi there

I thought you might like to see the cards I created for Crafter's Companion Main Design Team before I left. I designed them for Sara's Signature 'Glamour' Collection which was launched on Hochanda last week.

The first 5 were shown on several of the Hochanda shows by Sara, Debbie, Charlie and Hayley. I was as proud as punch :) I even had my camera out to take photos of the TV....sad I know (check the photos out below)! Lol 

The collection is beautiful and fab for proms, weddings or just girlie cards. I have listed all the products I used along with the links to the store. I apologies in advance as this post is pretty picture heavy. I hope you like them though.

For The Love Of Stamps By Hunkydory - May Launch

Hi everyone

As they say, as one door closes another one opens. Well this was the case with me, I stepped down from the Crafter's Companion Design Team last month after a year on the team. Then a few days afterwards I received an email inviting me to join 'For The Love Of Stamps' By Hunkydory Design Team. The work will involve stamping and colouring which one of my favourite things to do.

I have just recently worked on a few projects for the May launch today on Create & Craft today and tomorrow, so definitely have a peek and see if you can spot them. There should've been more cards, but unfortunately my mum was rushed into hospital a week ago so my time has been limited.

For The Love Of Stamps By Hunkydory - have such a vast range of stamps now, and anything from flowers to fish, from veg to vans...well you get the idea. For my cards I used the 'Vegetable stamp set' and the Beautifully Bright Paper Pad. You can buy the stamps from Hunkydory or Create & Craft.


To make my card, I used DL card base which I matted with patterned paper. The word 'Just' was printed directly onto some white card and cut to size, then the word 'veg' was die cut from it. The word 'veg' was die cut letter from green glitter card and thin foam and glued together. I stamped a few of the vegetable onto colouring card and coloured using Copics.  The white 'Just Veg' topper was added to the card front along with the die cut letter and cut out vegetables. To finish off enamel dots were added. 
To make my card, I used 6" x 6" square Kraft card base which I matted with patterned paper. I randomly stamped lots of the vegetables onto a cut down piece of Kraft card using brown ink, and coloured them with pencils. The sentiment was stamped in brown ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Everything was added to the card and to finish off enamel dots were added. 

To make my card, I used 5" x 5" scalloped card base which I matted with black card and patterned paper. I die cut a pece of white card and some patterned paper into a square, then stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The tomatoes were stamped twice, coloured with Copics then cut out. Glitter was added to the tomatoes to add a sparkle. Everything was attached to the card front using foam pads. To finish off I added black enamel dots, sequins and gems.

Here is a picture of the 'Just Veg' on Create & Craft on this (Saturday) afternoon.


Hope you like them.

Big hugs
