Birthday Butterflies

Hello Everyone!I hope you are well and are having a good week so far. I have been playing with some of my older stash recently. I keep finding things I love and have not used since I moved house. I will be having a big tidy up and sort out soon as my Craft supplies are in a bit of a mess and I'm having trouble finding things.
I am sharing a card today I made with a very old Penny Black stamp which I think was released in 2013. I can't find her for sale anywhere anymore but I remember snapping her up at the time as I thought the image was so pretty. She remained un-inked until I moved house! This card is for my Boyfriend's lovely Sister and I wanted it to look very elegant and pretty so I coloured the image in pastel colours adding a flower stamp to the bottom of my image panel with glitter accents.

The image was coloured with Promarkers and I used My Mind's Eye papers for the card and some lace and punches from my stash. The sentiment is from a Bobunny set, I do love a mixed font sentiment! I hope you have a lovely day.

MMCSDT: All I want for Christmas is Ewe...

Hello Everyone! I am back today with another Christmas card! I am really loving all the new Christmassy stock which has recently arrived at My Mum's Craft shop and I fell in love with the Baaah Humbug Lawn Fawn stamps. It seems you all did too as these are unfortunately sold out at the moment but there are plenty other Lawn Fawn stamps in stock here.

To make my card, I created some snowy hills using textured card and a My Favourite Things die. I stamped the sentiment on to the bottom snowy hill and some holly using tiny stamps from the set. I pieced the hills on to some snowy paper from the Doodlebug SugarPlums pad and used more papers from the pad to cover my card base.
Here is a close up of the little sheep which I coloured in with Promarkers. They are adorable and I love the tiny little heart. I kept my card very simple and added a small die cut snowflake with a pearl heart as a finishing touch. I hope you have a lovely Friday!

MMCS DT: Fall Friends Thank you card

Hello Everyone! I hope you are well and are looking forward to the Weekend. I will be decorating this weekend. I am really enjoying doing up my new home and putting my stamp on it. The sun is shining here today so hopefully we will also be able to enjoy a bit of sun while the paint is drying. I am here with my Design Team card for My Mum's Craft Shop today.

I have used the adorable 'Fall Friends' collection from Doodlebug for my little Thank you card.I created a little scene using papers and some punches  and added a little sewing before sticking the papers to my card. I used a cloud die to add the sentiment and accented it with a little flower.

This little cutie is a cardstock sticker. I added him to the card with foam pads and added an acorn sticker on the grass with a wooden heart button. I love the autumnal colour tones of this pad, they really inspired me. I have been crafting a little more lately and feel I am getting my mojo back so I am hoping I will be updating my blog at little more often! Have a lovely Weekend.
