A Dickens Christmas card for CMS design team

This is one of the new stamps from CMS A Dickens Christmas, these were drawn by Guy, it is so nice to have him back again after his illness. This one took some time for me because it has alot in it, I found out later that what I and some of the other thought was a watermelon is in fact a pie. LOL. To see the other wonderful stamps in this set please visit the CMS store at To see all of the great work done by the design team please visit I hope you like my coloring of the ghost of Christmas present.

Telescoping cards

Someone had posted a card called a telescoping card on the CTMH boards and I thought it was really cute and decided I would try to make them, well I made four of them and had a blast, they don't take very long and are much simpler than they look. I hope you like how mine turned out. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut all of my circles and the scallop circles. I will list my sizes from biggest to smallest. the large scallop is cut at 4" the white dasiy for this one is 3 1/2", the middle layer is 3 1/4", white daisy is cut at 3", the smallest layer is 2 1/2, and the white daisy is 2 1/4". The scallop circle can be found on pg 31 in the AP cart book, the circle is pg 21 and the snowflake is found on pg 22.

This is what they look like closed.

and this is what they look like opened, aren't they cute. I got the idea for a snowman in a jar from Paige.

Vendor Fair Dec.3, 2011

I did a vendor fair Saturday at the Ruckersville Elem school, it turned out to be alot of fun. I met some really nice people. Here are some of the items I made to take with me. This has been a really long week, thankfully I had alot of this done before Monday, as things started to get a little off balance.
All of my coloring is done using the Close to my Heart markers

These are treat bags from the Art Philosophy cartridge cut at 5 1/2", they are filled with the little starlight mints.

These next items are peppermint patties covered with cardstock, I used the 2" scallop punch to cut the bases and then used the Art philosophy cart to cut 1 3/4" circles.

This is another treat box using the art philosophy cart, it cuts the french fry boxes, I put holiday life savers in these. These were cut at 8 1/2"

and of course I had to do a display board the new AP cartridge, wanted to show everything you could get from just one button on the key pad.

and this last little goodie was my give aways for free, I cut these fry boxes at 4" (I think thats right) and place a 1" stamp in them. I didn't have many left when I got back home.
