Teacup Reindeer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I got some time off, but only a little.  Thursday was the only day I didn't have to work or go to school, so yipee!  Today, I just really wanted to do some crafting, so I made this cute little tag:

The tag is from the "Sweet Treats" cartridge.  It is cut at 4.23"x2.38."  

The reindeer in the mug is from SVG Cutting Files, it is called Reindeer Mug.  I cut it at 3/18."

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom, the Hello Deer set.

I finished off the tag with some glossy accents on the eyes and mouth, x-mas red Stickles on the nose, some doodling with a white gel pen, and red gems.

I made this for the following challenges:
Die Cuttin' Divas: tag, bag, or box
Cardz TV: Christmas gift tag

BaDonkey Donk

I managed to fit in some more crafting time today!  So I made this super fun card:

The card base and donkey image are from SVG Cutting Files.  The card base is called Trapezoid Card Base.  It is about 4 3/8"x5 3/4" when folded.

The donkey is called BaDonkey Donk.  I sized the donkey to fit the card, which makes him about 4 3/4" tall.  I covered his hooves, eyes, and mouth with glossy accents.  I used the "Celebrations" Cricut cartridge to create the party hat.  I sized it so that it would fit on the donkey's head.  I added some yellow Stickles to the pom-pom on the hat.  The balloons are also sized to fit.  They are from the "Just a Note" Cricut cartridge (which came already linked to my previous Cricut Expression).

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom.  It is on the Party Animal stamp set.  I finished off the front of the card with some pink, orange, and green sequins.

I made my first Christmas card of the season today, and here it is:

The card is a cut file from SVG Cuts.  It is part of the Mistletoe Manor set.  I cut it at 5 1/2" wide, which made it about 4 7/8" tall when folded.  The reindeer is glued to the card base at the bottom and the rest of the head is popped up with foam tape for a little dimension.  I also covered the eye in glossy accents.

The sentiment is stamped on vellum that is placed behind the pre-cut hole in the card.  I used a stamp from the Hello Deer set by Jaded Blossom.  I finished off the front of the card with some red bling.

I stamped a sentiment on the inside as well.  This one is from My Craft Spot, the Joy to the World set, which is no longer available.
