Lost Coast Christmas Cat

Good Morning Ladies,
I think this cold shall do me in but I keep moving along. One last day of work for the week and then two days of rest.
The card for today is Lost Coast Christmas Cat
 The image is from Lost Coast Designs. It is one of three that came together. They are some really cool cats. It was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. It was then matted with a layer of green card stock. Lost Coast is a more artsy rubber stamp company. I picked these cat images up at the Fort Wayne stamp show. The ornament card stock is from a DCWV stack. The rolled roses were created using a Sizzix die. A pearl sprig was added behind them. A green glitter ribbon tops this card off.
This is the inside sentiment. It is an old stamp from Stampin' Up.
Happy Scraps,

Giraffe Ornament

Good Morning Ladies,
I have started working on ornaments. I should have started a couple of months ago. So now I will have to get moving.
Today's project is Giraffe Ornament
This ornament started with the giraffe image from Local King Rubber. The giraffe was stamped on white card stock and then embossed with ranger black super fine embossing powder. It was then colorized with art markers and hand cut. The base of the ornament is paper mache'. It is covered with card stock from My Minds Eye. The sides are covered in glitter. The rolled rose is created with a Sizzix die. Fibers hang down from the top to which two bells are tied on.

It's Your Day Zebra

Good Morning Ladies,
I tried to post yesterday but I was having mouse trouble. And lord knows I can't operate my laptop without a mouse. I went and purchased a new one only to find out it is the port on my computer and not the mouse. At least I have a back up now.
The card for today is It's Your Day Zebra
This card started with the zebra tag. The zebra image is from Rubber Cottage. It is stamped on a glossy tag also from Rubber Cottage. The tag was then stippled with purple dye ink from Stampin' Up. A sheer purple ribbon was pulled through the hole at the top. The zebra striped card stock that covers the card base is from the Paper Cut. This package of card stock came from the Fort Wayne show. It was a special. Gotta love stamp show specials. The gardina flower was created using a Cheery Lynn die. The leaves were created using a Memory Box die. The small flowers are from Prima. I added pearls to the center of these. A black pearl sprig peaks from behind.

Snow Queen

Good Morning Ladies,
Another fun day and evening of training yesterday. Dude is learning his obedience well. And the agility students and dogs are a barrel of fun. Today I will spend time creating new things.
Today's card is Snow Queen
This card started with the snow queen image. I picked this stamp up used this summer. It has no company maker on it and I think it is fairly old. The image was stamped on watercolor paper. It was colorized using Stampin' Up watercolor crayons and Mica palettes from US Art Quest. http://www.usartquest.com/ The snow at the bottom was created using Stickles and Tattered Angels mist. The mist bottle was opened and a paint brush was dipped in and then washed across the bottom. The watercolor paper took this mist well. The snowflakes are a pre-cut product from Creative Expressions. A pearl was added to the center of each snowflake. The sentiment is from CTMH. 
The inside sentiment. Also from CTMH.
