Skating Snow Friends

Good Morning Ladies,
I'm a little late this morning. I was having a brain freeze. I received new stuff yesterday and couldn't decide what to make.
The card for today is Skating Snow Friends
The background snowflake paper is from my stash. The skating surface was created using a Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folder. I thought it looked like a heavily skated on pond. The bear, snowman, and Santa images are from Stampendous. They were stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolors. They were then cut with the dies that come with them. They were accented with stickles. The snowflake is from my stash. It has a pearl for the center. The sentiment is from Momenta.
The inside sentiment is from the Stamps of Life.
Happy Scraps,

Dog and Cat Peace On Earth

Good Morning Ladies,
I went out coat shopping last night with a friend. Nope, I didn't find a coat. But I did get one ordered when I got home. So I will be nice and warm and cozy.
The card for today is Dog and Cat Peace On Earth
I had a lot of fun creating this card. The evergreen trees were cut and embossed on the Grand Calibur with a Sue Wilson die. Momento Luxe white ink was braised over the top of the trees to pick up the embossing. The dog and cat is an image from Inky Antics. It was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolors. It was then hand cut. The image was then applied to the card. Yes! Paste was used to adhere the snow. The star was created using a Joggles stencil, die ink, and a Signo white pen. The sentiment is from CTMH. A combination of companies rendered the picture in my head when creating this card. So the answer to my husbands question "Do you need all of this stuff?" is a resounding YES!

Good Morning Ladies,
It's Friday! So much to do this weekend. Hopefully a lot of creating time will be included.
The card for today is Reindeer and Santa
The background paper is from TPS. The label shape was cut from a grand calibur die. The santa and reindeer was cut from a die from a unknown company. It was cut from watercolor paper and colorized with water colors. It was then put down on the label die cut. The empty areas on Santa and his bag were filled with stickles. A gold pen was used to go around the edges of the card.
The sentiment is from Momenta.

Belgian Tervuren Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
I am up and at it this morning. Boy do I have a lot to catch up on. I think I am feeling a little better this morning.
The project for today is Belgian Tervuren Ornament
A paper mache' ornament base was used to create this ornament. The DSP is from a Martha Stewart pad. The dog was stamped on watercolor paper and was colorized with watercolors. It was then hand cut. Ribbons and jingle bells top this ornament off.
 This is a side view of the gold glitter all the way around the ornament.

Tattered Lace Fabulous Birthday

Good Morning Ladies,
I was not running a fever yesterday. So I broke out for a little bit. I just had to get some more new cards to the 7th crow where my cards are for sale. Then right back home it was to get dog show raffle baskets in the works.
The card for today is Tattered Lace Fabulous Birthday
The background for this card was created using the spray smoosh technique. A perfect backdrop for the Tattered Lace dog and girl die. This die belongs to my friend. She cut one out for me and I love it. The sentiment is from Frou Frou. It was stamped in white on a black background and cut with a spellbinders die set.
The inside sentiment is also from Frou Frou.
Happy Scraps,
