MMCSDT - Just because

Hello Everyone! I hope you are well and having a lovely Weekend so far. I went to the horse racing at Ascot yesterday. We were lucky with the weather and not very lucky with the horses but it was a great day out. I am back with my regular Sunday post for the My Mum's Craft shop blog and I have been playing with some of the new Technique Tuesday stamps which arrived this week. I used the 'You did it' set on this card with some distress inks to create the central panel.

I cut out a panel of white card using a Spellbinders die and then blended Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Vintage photo  Distress inks. I stamped some of the flowers using Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet and the sentiment using brown Archival ink. I added a couple of little pearls and a little wooden button from my stash and layered everything on to some paper from a Bazzill Basics pack.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

My Mum's Craft Shop DT for the September Challenge - Die cuts and Punches

Hello Everyone! I am back! I have had a bit of a break from blogging over the Summer and am back now with my DT card for this month's My Mum's Craft Shop Challenge. Our theme this month is a nice easy one. It is dies and punches. My Cuttlebug is my most used piece of craft equipment so this was a perfect theme for me to return with. Apologies for the photos, they have come out a bit dark...I am out of practice!

I used a Hobby House die cut as the topper for my card and used some gorgeous Marianne Design papers which were donated to me by my lovely Friend Petra. I used Dienamics dies to cut the tags for the rub on sentiments. I added lots of gorgeous Ribbon Girl goodies including pearl stems, denim ribbon, hessian ribbon, tiny ric rac and lots of paper flowers.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous topper. I love using these images for my cards when I am not in the mood for colouring. There are lots of new Hobby House toppers and some gorgeous new flowers in stock too, check out the new arrivals here! 
I hope you will be able to join us for this Challenge for the chance to win a voucher for My Mum's Craft Shop.Have a lovely Monday!
