Ragga Mutt's Christmas

Here's a cute little pup I came across at Digi Doodle Shop when I went there in search of the pansies stamp.
When I saw the two images I immediately thought of putting them together for a Christmas card; one on the front and the other inside, and this is what I've come up with.
This puppy isn't really bad, he probably just wanted to help decorate, right??

The images have been colored with Promarkers and stickles.
I haven't done a challenge in a few months, so I'll take this opportunity to enter this card in the #31 Anything Goes challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Challenge Blog.

More Craft Fair Goodies

As promised, I'm posting pictures of more of the things I've been working on for the craft fair.

These are the Hershey's Nuggets with decorative wrapper and placed 6 pieces to a slide open box. The tutorial for the box is from the SCS forums.

Ghiradelli chocolates boxes. I don't recall where I found the box template. The boxes hold 3 mini Ghiradellis. The front stays closed with velcro.

This next box is a doughnut box from Stay At Home Mom Crafts. I've made it smaller to hold Hershey Kisses. I've been using 4oz of kisses per box. My version measures about 5in L x 1.75in W x 1 3/8in H.

I'll have more goodies to show over the next few days.

Pretty Pansies

I took a break from making craft fair treats to make a few cards.
This is a boxed set that I made using the pansies digital stamp from Digi Doodle Shop.

I've colored the image in 4 different colorways plus a 5th image for the box top. I really like flower stamps, but struggle with trying to make them look realistic when coloring them. Practice, practice, practice I suppose. I think I'm fairly happy with how these turned out.

These were colored with Promarkers and a bit of colored pencil here and there.

Christmas Goodies Galore

Long time, no posts!
I have been busy making stuff, just not cards. I have my first ever craft fair on November 20th and I've been busy making crafts other than cards. I initially was hoping to just sell my cards at the craft fair, but after reading some of the stories on Splitcoast Stampers I thought it would be prudent to have some other offerings.

The ideas for all of these items come from the craft fair thread on Split Coast Stampers

Reese's Stix. The tag is from Cricut Very Merry Tags. These use the 2x8in bags

Grinch Pills. The poem is found in the thread on Splitcoast Stampers, the image is from the internets. Lime green Sixlets for the "pills" from

Reindeer Poop. Topper and poem from The Cutting Cafe. Chocolate covered raisins for the "poop".

I still have more goodies that I've been making to share, but I'll space them out a bit.

Thanks for looking. If any of this looks fun to you, I urge you to give it a try; I've had a lot of fun making them.

Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Set

I saw this Hero Arts stamp used on My Cricut Scrapbooking and just fell in love with it. It was another must have for me, which happens all too frequently!

Inspired by that card, I have made my version. I have tried not to outright copy hers, but the use of gold and not coloring in the ornaments all the way are truly inspired by her card.

I've made mine into a set of 4 and have them up on my Etsy card shop.

Penny Black Gift Card Tags

Here are some more Penny Black cards. These little cards measure 2.75in squared and have been punched in the corner to hold a hang string for attaching to gifts.

I've been trying to go through all of my stamps and use every one at least once. Since these images are so small, mini gift cards are what game to mind. I had a couple with mice, but they got lost somewhere on my craft table... Not so surprising considering it is always so cluttered!

If you would like to see them all, you can find them in my Etsy card shop.
