Mittens


Looking at the cards now I could have easily made them into baby boy cards by changing the sentiment but making Christmas cards were the plan for the weekend. The idea for them was so I could join in with Less is More to use Patterned Paper and I knew blue and kraft worked well together.
The mittens are a Memory Box die but used three times with kraft, white and the gingham. I just used another die the mini scallop from Memory Box to make the top border and with the first card used the Simon Says Stamps sentiment from Merry Trees.


Now the not so Less is More I decided to use the Sizzix embossing folder, a favourite of mine. I believe its from the Hello Friend set. Just added some small pearls to the cross overs and the dodgy sentiment stamped by heavy handed lil is from Penny Black.
In total I made 18 CAS over the weekend but moving my craft stuff has taken its toll and Mr Mojo wasn't co-operating. Not helped that the stamp I knew I had and last seen on my craftdesk in my craftroom is now nowhere to be found.

  18. These are gorgeous Debby, great CAS style, I might use these for inspiration if that's ok with you :) I have a very difficult making CAS cards that don't look like a kid made them hahaha.

    I had the same thing with a stamp going missing as well the other day, SO FRUSTRATING! It was a clear stamp, I was thankfully lucky enough to find it stuck onto the back of a bit of scrap paper that I was about to throw away! Maybe if it's a clear stamp for you too, you could check everything else that was on your desk to see if it's stuck to anything.

  41. Love love love them Debby ♥

    I adore this CAS style but I just can't make them, no matter how hard I try.
    White, kraft and blue is a match made in heaven and the gingham is an extra bonus ( I loves me a bit of gingham!)

    Fabulous sentiments, particularly the SSS one, I can see I'm going to have buy that set!

    Big hugs

  54. I have been sitting here browsing all your cards. First I want to say AMAZING!! I LOVE your 3D images. I tried it once - it's not as easy as it looks lol. And I have a question for you. Can you tell me the name of the embossing folder you used on this card? And possibly where you found it? I keep seeing it everywhere and I love it, but I can't seem to find it in any of the online I shops I have checked.
    Thank you and I love your work!

  56. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?.
