Easel Card

Image
The minute I saw this stamp set from Daisy Mae Designs I knew I wanted to created a special card with it. My husband parents own a caravan and it is his mums birthday coming up soon so I knew I wanted to use it for that.  I wanted it to he something special though. This did not turn out how zi had planned, by original plan would not work but I quite like how it eventually turned out There is a video on my YouTube Channel  Mrs H's Crafty Corner Cardmaking Supplies Used My Mobile Home Stamp Set by Daisy Mae Designs Spectrum Noir Finesse in Rustic Brown  Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers Gemini Torn Oval Nesting Dies Embossing Ink Wow Embossing Powder in Mint Macaroon  LRDS Heart Die from the Slimline Die Set Acetate  Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick Happy Birthday Sentiment from Let's Hear It For The Girls by Made to Surprise Papermania Female Semtiments (Mum) Banner Die ( I can not remember if it is from The Works or Hobbycraft) Scan n cur Blue Card Glitter Card White Card

Handmade Card Dainty Hugs

Image
My inspiration for this card came from the Cupcakes Inspiration Challenge which had the theme, blue, yellow and white.  We have spent the week in the Lake District and as I was doing the 30 Day Marker Challenge I pre stamped a.lot of images to take with me. When the new challenge came out I instantly knew which image I would use. One.of my all time favourites Afternoon Tea by Daisy Mae Designs.

Spring Blossom Embossed Card

Image
This card uses one of my bargain finds from last week. A Daisy Mae Design Stamp in Spring Blossom. I am really pleased with how this coloured up and love the new shade of Tri-blend pen the Postman has just delivered. It is 'Bright Pink Shade' and has produced that amazingly vibrant reddish pink flower.

Butterfly and Bee

This is another of my bargain stamps. Craftstash have a sister site called craft world which is full of expert advise and inspiration. Every Saturday they have a Super Six which is a six offers that run for craftworld members. This stamp was one of the super six last week and I only had to pay postage and packaging which was £2.49. If you are interested in joining craftworld it is free and available  here

Sweet Treats

Image
This simple card uses The Sweet Favourite Stamp Set by Daisy Mae Designs. I really love the details on the sweet jars on the shelf. It makes me think of Beamish (an open air museum in the North of England telling the story of life in the region from 1820 right through to the 1950's) and days out with family and friends. Which is just what we need at the moment 

Zig Zag Card - Fun Fold

Image
Another really easy fun fold card. That looks super effective. This one incorporates stamps from the Daisy Mae Design Village Bakery Collection and really makes me want cake....

Tent Stepper Card

Image
I wanted to create a card where I could show off the vast majority of the Daisy Mae Faraway Collection. I wanted a woodland scene but all the folds I tried just looked swaped with the size of the toadstool and the tree stump house. But the tent stepper allows the little scene to play out perfectly

Spring Clean

Image
I love cute animal cards but never thought I would describe a frog as cute!!! However the Daisy Mae Design Spring Clean stamp is an exception to that rule. This cute little guy looks like he is throughly enjoying his scrub in the bucket and as such it needed a plain and simple card to allow the stamp to do the talking.

Distress Ink Background Card

Image
The stamp in this card was one of my bargain finds, a few weeks ago and I love the vibrant flowers in the cart. It reminded me of marigolds which got my little mind working and reminded me of the dried marigold distress ink I have in my stash. I wanted to create a background that complimented the flower colours but which did not deter your view point from the stamped image as I wanted that to remain the focal point.

Up, Up and Away Easy Fun Twisted Gatefold Card

Image
This is a super easy card to make. I used the Daisy Mae Design Hot Air Ballon Stamp. This was one of my bargains from last week I have had this gorgeous cloud paper for a little while now and feel this has given it the justice it deserves. It was a free download paper and Mr Printables Mr Printables  Website is well worth a look, there are a lot of lovely prints. 

VE Day Memorial Inspired Sympathy Card

Image
I have known what I wanted to do with this stamp since the moment I ordered it. It is not often that happens for me, but I knew the moment I saw the stamp flash up on my facebook news feed early one morning that I just had to have it.  It is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day and our village had a street party and entertainment planned. The bank holiday had been changed from the Monday to the Friday to commemorate the day. But Coronavirus put an end to our planned celebrations with lockdown been on the cards instead.  So our VE day bank holiday consisted of decorating the house in home made bunting and an afternoon tea of dairy free scones (child with an allergy) which were an absolute disaster. I actually had to ask the children not to use them as weapons as they would do some serious damage.

Rocker Card, Tea & Cake - Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring/Summer 2020

Image
This is a variation of a rocker card. I bought this gorgeous hessian ribbon online and I thought it was 3cm wide but I had accidentally clicked 5cm. We have all done it, right? I am sure it wont be the last time.... I keep looking at it and wondering what I can do to show off its beauty. Then it came to me. A variation on a rocker card.

Day 2 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Spring/Summer 2020

Image
This is my second card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. Today I chose to use a fun fold card that is clean and simple.

Heat Embossing

Image
So I spent a long time admiring others heat embossing and amazed at the results but too afraid of failure to allow myself myself to try it. I just avoided it like the plague. But I finally bit the bullet and purchased a starter kit, this included a number of coloured embossing powders, a heat tool and an embossing ink pad. Armed with my new purchases I trailed you tube looking for an easy to follow to guide and after many false starts I now LOVE heat embossing.

Masking Stamps

Image
Masking stamps is really easy and allows you to layer stamps to give an illusion of one item in front of another and they can also be used to ink a background. In this tutorial I will show you just how easy it actually is. 

Craftstash Delivery

Image
I have been so excited for this parcel to arrive. It feels like I have waited ages as I had parts  of it sat in my basket for a little while before I actually placed the order.  It actually arrived just 6 days after I placed the order, which for the current climate with the added issues of social distancing and the extreme pressure the postal service is under. I am very impressed with
