Hunkydory's Smudge & Mitten Card

Here are a couple of cards that I wanted to share with you. They are from a card kit from Hunkydory Crafts and this line is called Smudge and Mittens.

The picture doesn't do it justice. Actually in the first picture, it looks as if the image is printed on the cardstock but there are several layers to the image. The kit comes with tons of foiled toppers, decoupaged images (Smudge is decoupaged) and printed backing cardstock. You can't really call it paper because it is so thick. It almost as thick as the cover of some paper packs.

I hope you can see some of the dimension in the second picture. These are fast and easy cards to make however choosing what to make can be overwhelming with all of the designs to choose from. Both cards measure 7 x 7.

Please stop back for more cards and crafts.

Spellbinders Sapphire & Tattered Lace High Heel Glam

Hi Everyone...
I just got the new Sapphire mini die cutting machine from Spellbinders. I purchased it from Joann's.  It is super cute and so easy to use.

This would be the perfect machine for a younger beginner crafter or anyone wanting a small machine. It's lightweight, probably weighs about a pound. The plates measure 2.5 x 6 inches and it comes with 4 plates; a base, cutting, embossing plate with an embossing folder.

Check out the video below. I show you how easy it is to use.

More Happy Mail from Create & Craft

Look what I found in my mailbox yesterday. It is a card that I won from Dawn Wheeler on Create & Craft USA.

Unbeknownst to me, Jinger had just mentioned my name as someone who had previously won a card. I had missed that portion of the show. I sent an email and they laughed because they had just mentioned me. At the end of the show they chose my name from the "cup of chance" and I won this card.

Check out the video below.

Glam Heels...

Purple is one of my favorite colors and I love how this card came out. I need to build up my card inventory so I will add the sentiment when I need to later on.

I used one sheet of purple Topsy Turvy. It's a double sided paper with one side being lighter that the other side. The bow is the small Chantilly bow from Tattered Lace. The shoe is the Glam Heel also by Tattered Lace. They were cut with a pastel glitter paper. All of the products came from Create & Craft USA.
