Brayered Fall Deer card

I brayered this lovely card over the weekend with no real plan in mind for it.  I haven't brayered in a while and ended up doing 3 different designs, I will share the others with you over the next several days.  Winter is finally starting to hit us here in southwestern Illinois and the trees are turning brown and it is wet and chilly out.  Anyways, I wanted to make a card representing what I really love about autumn, most of all the changing of colors.

Here's what I used:
Lovely As A Tree stamp set #115026
Winter Post stamp set #111780
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953
Bashful Blue Ink Pad #105209
Marina Mist Ink Pad #119668
Black Stazon Pad #101406
Early Expresso Ink Pad #119670 and marker #119680
Chocolate Chip Ink Pad #100908
More Mustard Ink Pad #103162
Old Olive Ink Pad #102277

Blender Pens #102845
Sponges #101610
Brayer #102395

It's that time of year again... Craft Fair Season!!!

This year I had a booth at the OFallon Township High School Band Boosters Craft Fair.  I was so excited that I got into the show that I have been working like a dog... ha ha, I made dog treat tins with a little help from my 4 year old daughter, Paige. She lined up the bones in the tins for me. She is a great helper!

I used the D is for Dog stamp set on the Doggie Treat Tins.

On the reindeer poop bags I used the a retired Big Shot die for the antlers, and circle punches for eyes and noses, and the Top Note Die from the Big Shot for the head.

The Perfect Man bags are always a HOT item to give to your girlfriends who really need to find one!

One of my favorite items I made was the Candy Bar Wrappers. I used the Leaves #2 Die #113459 from the Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing folder #120175, the Falling Leaves stampset #115368, Hemp Twine #100982, the 3/4" Circle punch #119873 and the Designer Series paper is retired, that is how I save money making goodies at the Craft Fairs!

I made a variety of Matchbox Teabag Holders including Christmas, Congrats and Get Well.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the goodies I had at the Craft Fair!  I am working on a few new things for another Craft Fair in two weeks! Have a great day!
