Peace on Your Wings tag

Good Morning Ladies,
I am up and at it early this morning. I already have the laundry going. The dogs have been fed and out twice and now laying at my feet. I think today is going smooth so far.
Today I have a Peace on Your Wings tag ....
This tag started with the tree stamp from Inkadinkado. It is from one of their clear sets. This was stamped on a tag base with black Memento ink. Next the sentiment was stamped in the same ink. The sentiment is from Stamping Sensations. It reads I will write Peace on your wings, And you will fly all over the world. Sadako Sasaki. The tag was then sponged with Tim Holtz distressed inks. The tag was lined with a gold art deco pen. A flat back dove was attached at the top of the tag. Fiber was added as a tie.
I have dived back into my fibers again. I think they fit some of the creations I have been making.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Zebra Tag

Good Morning Ladies,
Dog training classes started back up again last night. Dude got to do some obedience in Connie's class. I have a nice class of dogs. I did get a few things created this past weekend.
Today is a Zebra Tag
The zebra image is from the Rubber Cottage. Another stamp I purchased at the Fort Wayne show last year but had not had a chance to use. I could let him sit no longer. He was stamped on a tag. The weeds were stamped several times just using a portion of the stamp each time. This stamp is from Stampscapes. The sentiment is from CTMH. The background was created using make-up sponges and Tim Holtz distressed inks. The sentiment Peace On Earth usually comes with a Christmas set. But I don't think of it as a Christmas sentiment only. And I thought it was perfect for this sweet gentle faced zebra. A gold art deco pen was used to edge the tag.

The inside sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Magnolia Ponies

Good Morning Ladies,
I was up a little earlier this morning than usual. I guess I got plenty of rest yesterday and ready to go today.
The card for today is Magnolia Ponies
 I have done a fair amount of buying used stamps this summer. So I have many new things to play with at little cost. Yay me! It is fun to see how elements come together for me. The start of this card was the Magnolia Ponies stamp. They were stamped on Bristol paper. Colorized with spica pens they are sparkly. They were then hand cut. I looked over to the side and the arches Sheena embossing folder from Crafter's Companion was staring me in the face. I ran it through my cuttlebug with a lighter weight grey scrapbook paper. I then took a white cat's eye ink pad and ran it over the top for more dimension. This is a 5 x 7 embossing folder so it gave me room to make my ponies leap across the card. The three flowers were created using a Cheery Lynn flower die. These were in my flower bowl all ready to go and they matched my ponies perfect. So they grace the corner of the card with a pearl sprig underneath. The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders die set. The sentiment is from a clear set. I don't know the company though as it came without one.
This is the inside sentiment is from the Stamps of Life.

Birthday Nymph

Good Morning Ladies,
It's Saturday morning and I don't have to be anywhere this morning. That is all most unheard of. So how did I spend my early morning? Well of course working on cards and things. My son even joined me to work on a paper mache' treasure chest.
The card for today is Birthday Nymph
The Nymph character is an image from Crafter's Companion. They have so many cool designs over there. I can't get enough of them. She was stamped with Memento ink on Bristol paper. She was then masked with Eclipse tape. A leaf image from US Art Quest and Sandi Miller was then stamped several times to create a seat for the Nymph. The mask was then remove. The scene was the colorized using Prism pencils, Gamsol, and glitter pens. This was mounted on blue cardstock. Flowers were created using a Sizzix die, and a Cheery Lynn die. A tag was inked on the edges and stamped with a sentiment in coffee archival ink by ranger. A fiber was tied on the side. I have not used fibers much on cards lately. But it seemed fitting for the Nymph.
This is the inside sentiment by Crafter's Companion.
Happy Scraps,

Autumn Pumpkin

Good Morning Ladies,
The kids in my area are back in school. So the yellow buses are rolling down the roads in the morning. Fall is headed our way. The card for the day is Autumn Pumpkin....
The pumpkin image is from the Rubber Cottage. I picked this stamp up last fall at the Fort Wayne stamp show. This is the first time I have had time to use it. It was stamped on glossy cardstock with coffee Archival Ink. This is an unmounted stamp. The tree branch image in the background is from Stampscapes. The wheat image is from an unknown company. I have purchased a few used stamps this summer and most of them are not marked with the company. Tim Holtz distressed inks were used to colorize the entire scene. The card base is color blocked with three different colors of card stock.
This is the inside sentiment. Again from and unknown company. I believe the acorn image is from Stampin' Up but once again I am not sure.
Happy Scraps,

Star Birth Moon

Good Morning Ladies,
This morning all is well with the world. My dogs are happy and so am I!
My card this morning is Star Birth Moon
I did do one mask to create this card. The moon face is a Victorine Originals image. It was stamped on glossy card stock and then I applied the mask. The star birth image from Stampscapes was stamped several times on the panel. The mask was removed. The images were then colorized with See D's dye inks Tim Holtz die inks and Andirodak inks.Little stars were added with a white paint pen.  The panel was matted with black card stock. Dark blue card stock covers the card base. A moon and stars ribbon in dark blue was tied at the bottom.

The inside sentiment is by Stamping Sensations.
Happy Scraps,
