A Jofy Card

Hello and welcome to my usual weekly post for My Mum's Craft Shop. We have had so many new products in lately (and more on the way) it's hard to choose what to use! I have had the new PaperArtsy Jofy Stamps sat on my desk for about a week waiting to be used and finally i thought yes now is the time!
OMG i knew i would love these stamps, i have so many more ideas for them too. This is the Jofy 09 Set. I love that they are simple and quirky and they don't need much else than a dash of colour to look fab.. i am thinking i might do a canvas with these next time. To create the background i just used some adirondack inks and a dreamweaver brush. I wanted it nice and pastel to make the flowers show up more. The sentiment also comes in this set which is all ez mounted already too!

I will be back tomorrow with my latest Docrafts creation!

Cupcake Cards

Well last night despite being up really early i couldn't actually sleep so i decided to just sit at my desk and create something simple. I was actually tired but not tired enough to sleep so i knew colouring and concentrating would be out of the question. I bought a few bits from the Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique Collection just to make up some quick cards so i decided to go along with that and here is what i came up with...
 I know they are really simple but i think they are kinda cute. Pretty much everything on these is from the Cupcake Boutique Collection. I have used the Decoupage Pad, 6x6 Papers, Sentiment Toppers and ohhh those gorgeous Resin Flowers! I am sooo loving these resin flowers that are popping up everywhere although this is the first time i have actually used them. I seem to like collecting things at the moment.

Right i best go and do some more work and then take the kids out :)

Farnborough Stash!

I have been working my socks off lately, lots of late night and working weekends, mostly behinds the scenes stuff and mag work so yesterday i had a well deserved day off. Of course it had to involve craft so i went to the Make It Show at Farnborough. We normaly exhibit at this show but we didn't this year but i still wanted to go as it's normally a fab show and yes yet again it was awesome! There were quite a few companies i spotted with fab stuff.. seeing as i only actually needed glue this is what i came back with... oops!
As you will see when it comes to shows i seriously i have no self control!! I might not be going to the NEC now so i thought i would make the most of it incase i can't go! Loads of stamps and alterable things of course and a few dies and some embellies too!! Can't wait  to get playing with it all. I have been trying to tidy my craft area and for once i can see my desk, hurrah!!

Hope you are all having a fab weekend :)
