Sketchy Flowers Happy Birthday

Good morning lovely crafty peeps.

Debs here again with a little Monday Morning Inspiration 
and this week I've been playing with some totally scrummy new MFT stash from 


I love all things floral and these Sketchy Flowers matching stamps and dies are fabulous and so versatile.
You can simply layer the stamped outline with the solid stamped in the ink colour of your choice if you're in a hurry and have no time to colour - or get your preferred colouring medium out and have fun colouring the stamped outline yourself.

For this design I went with the layered stamped look.

Here are the links to the gorgeous stash used:


Have a lovely crafty week - see you next Monday.

Edna Loves the Ocean

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


I had an urge to colour Edna Loves the Ocean, you know I love Edna! I fancied giving her a bit of a vintage, 1940s glam look, so I coloured her in monotone to make it look like an old photo. I love it when a plan comes together.


If you are local to Doncaster today, we are at Crafting Live at Doncaster Racecourse, come along and say 'hi'!

Products Used... 
Make it Colour Blending Card  
Stamping Bella Edna Loves the Ocean Rubber Stamp
My Favourite Things Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Paper Pad

Lovely Lilac

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

I know everyone is drooling over the AMAZING new Stamping Bella release but I have also been revisiting the beautiful Garden Girls and added a few new ones to my collection.

This is the beautiful Lilac Girl and just look at the myriad of teeny little flowers... I guess you either love or hate colouring all of them... can you guess that I LOVE it!

Adorable Elephants

I've been drooling over these aptly named Adorable Elephants for a while and eventually they've come back into stock so I've nobbled them quickly and it wasn't too long before I've managed to ink them up.  I've used 4 of the cuties from the set and also a sentiment, but considering all those images, the design is still really CAS.

My little heffalumps are purple (because everyone knows that heffalumps can be purple) and I've created a little scene for them playing in the sun.

Moody Unicorns

I've been seeing these little boxes pop-up (literally!) over blogland and decided to make my own. But instead of downloading a template I started from scratch and measured out something to fit a sheet of A4 card (there's nothing like making life hard for yourself!). Despite the frustrations and a waste bin full of attempts, I'm quite pleased with the final result.  I've used Gerda Steiner Moody Unicorns for the decoration of both the case and the box. When the box is pulled out, it pops open using an elastic band for tension, which stretches when you want to squash the box flat again for keeping inside the little sleeve.

A-maze-ing Dad

Hello everyone, it's Kat here!

I thought the brand new maze themed collection from MFT would be perfect for a Fathers' Day card, but I can see it being great for so many other occasions too and can't wait to create more a-maze-ing designs with it - lol!


For this card I used one of the plastic mazes inside a shaker pouch and you can even get the teeny metal ball to pop inside...it's so cute!

Rock and Paws for Father's Day

Good morning lovely crafty peeps.

Hope you are well and enjoying the glorious weather we are having in the UK - I know for some it is a struggle with the heat but for me personally I love it :o)

Debs here with my little Monday Morning Inspiration for

DIES TO DIE FOR

I made this card only yesterday morning with the purchases I made at DtDF the day before in Telford - so I broke my record for using new stash the fastest.

There is a 'meaning' behind the choice of images on this card - when Jack was very small he and John would play a game where Jack would say Dog and John would reply Doggie - they would do this repeatedly and for some strange reason they thought it was so funny - the best bit for me was hearing them laugh so much together - so when I saw this set of stamps I just knew I had to have them!!!


Card Inside:

John also used to play both the drums and the guitar (not both at the same time lol!!!)

Card Ingredients:

Image: Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Stamp Set
Mama Elephant Rock and Paws Die Set
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Paper: Best Creations Rock Star
Sentiment Stamps for Inside: Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy

Have a fabulous day.

So, you've seen the Whimsy Stamps Release this month, right? It is absolutely crammed full of gorgeousness, including these two penguins. Even penguins need a holiday...

Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you get up to.

If you are local to Telford, I will be demonstrating with Copics for Dies to Die For at Create it, so pop by and say hi :) I know exactly how many goodies Tracy and Andy pack into the van, so it's well worth a visit if you can make it!

You are Mermazing!

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

Ok, so I know there is a whole new release from MFT but I have only just got around to playing with the mermaids from the previous release!

Now, hands up who wants to be a mermaid?!
