Stamplistic Bay Horse Birthday

Good Morning Ladies,
The weekend is almost here. I am hoping to get to create quite a bit. Or at least get more stuff purged from my crafty space.
The card for today is Stamplistic Bay Horse Birthday
This card was created using the big horse stamp from Stamplistics big and little collection. The horse was stamped on watercolor paper with archival ink. He was then colorized with the CTMH watercolors. A memory box star stencil was then place over the top of the panel. It was stippled over with die ink. A ribbon tied at the bottom tops this card off.
The inside sentiment is a combo of a CTMH set and a Stamps of Life set.
Happy Scraps,

It's Show Time 3-D

Good Morning Ladies,
My oh my is it cold outside this morning. But I am up and moving early.
The card for today is It's Show Time 3-D
While I was gone at the stamp day last Saturday I purchased three different sheets of 3-D. One was a camping one which I have used here. The pieces were punched out and built with pop dots. The ribbon is an image from the Stamps of Life. 
A view of the 3-D popping.

Little Chicks Easter

Good Morning Ladies,
We did get snow but not at all what they were calling for. I am hoping we continue to stay out of the snow band.
The card for today is Little Chicks Easter
This card panel is another one I found in my stash. The chicks are from Inkadinkado. I am not sure about the other two images. The images were stamped on white shimmer card stock and were embossed with ranger black embossing powder. The flowers are Prima and have Stickles for centers.

Indian Carousel Horse

Good Morning Ladies,
I missed yesterday blogging. I was too tired to much of anything. I am back today with energy!
The card for today is Indian Carousel Horse
I have been going through my room and doing a destash. I found this card panel along with others that had never been mounted on a card. So I made a card. This image is a Mostly Animals image. This is a great company that went out of business. You can still find some of their images on EBay. The image was stamped on vellum and heat embossed with a fine embossing powder. It was then colorized with art markers. Brads secure the  vellum panel to the cardstock mat.

Sheena Douglass Puppy Play

Good Morning Ladies,
I am off to another craft day today. I am doing a make and take. It should be a fun day with family and friends.
The card for today is Sheena Douglass Puppy Play
This card was created using my last alcohol ink on mirror card panel. The puppy chasing the ball and the leaves up above are from two Sheena Douglass stencils. They were inked through with a stipple brush and archival ink. These panels were great fun to work with. I will have to spend another session creating more of them.
The inside sentiment is from CTMH. The woof is a flatback from my stash.
Happy Scraps,

Mason Jar Pouring Fish

Good Morning Ladies,
I am running a little slow this morning. The cold is getting to me. I want to stay in my nice warm bed.
The card for today is Mason Jar Pouring Fish
I saw this pouring watercolor technique somewhere. I don't remember where. It stuck in my brain and I had to give it a go. The mason jar is an image from Fiskars. The sentiment is from CTMH. The sea charms are from my stash.  The sunshine was created using a Sheena Douglass stencil.
The inside sentiment is from the Stamps of Life.
