Vintage German Embossed Horse Tag

Good Morning Ladies,
It's cold again. I have not noticed it so much the last few days. I have been busy, busy. My dogs are happy and I am happy.
The project for today is Vintage German Embossed Horse Tag
 This tag was created using a Vintage German Embossed Cut. This horse has a beautiful rich color. The background paper is from my stash. It is a more subtle design. The good luck horse shoe in the background paper caught my eye as a perfect setting for the horse. Three pearls in the corner accent this tag nicely. A rose colored ribbon was added for the tie.

Dream Big Little One

Good Morning Ladies,
Yesterday was a busy, busy day. So much fun I had for a Wednesday. A little tired this morning but I will perk up in a few minutes.
The card for today is Dream Big Little One
This card was inspired by the lamb image from Whimsy Stamps. He was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolor crayons. He was then hand cut. A watercolor panel was used to stamp the fence and the sentiment. The fence and the sentiment are from Alley Way Stamps. This is a new company for me. I do enjoy their stamps. This panel was also colorized with watercolor crayons. The sky is a light blue. I don't think you can see it in the photo but I used 3D stamp paint and sponged in some clouds. The butterfly is a charm.
This is the inside sentiment.

Cattle Dog Birthday

Good Morning Ladies,
Another busy week is in progress. Lots to do.
The card for today is Cattle Dog Birthday
 This card was created using a pre-cut layered card base from the Paper Cut. The rolled roses were created using the Sizzix rolled rose die. The flower that sits between the two roses is a flat back. Washi tape runs across the bottom.

This is the card open.
This is the inside sentiment. The cattle dog image is a wood mounted image with no company on the wood.

Ride In The Park Tag

Good Morning Ladies,
I could not believe we had snow yesterday. Oh my goodness turn it off. March is 2/3 of the way gone. We need a little warm spring breezes and a little sunshine please.
The project for today is a Ride In The Park Tag
The sentiment and the bicycle are both from the March stamp of the month club over at the Stamps of Life. The set is called bicycle2stamp. The bicycle was stamped on Bristol paper. It was then colorized with watercolor crayons and US Art Quest mica palette paint. It was then die cut with the companion die. Washi tape runs along one edge. A piece of kitchen string serves as a tie.

Tattered Lace Ribbon Dress

Good Morning Ladies,
It was a good weekend. The freestyle seminar was fun. And I did get some creating in as well.
The card for today is Tattered Lace Ribbon Dress
My friend that got the corset Tattered Lace die also has all of the magazines. She brought them over and let me take a look at the samples in the magazines. I saw this sample and just had to create it myself. The lower portion of the corset is cut away and ribbons are added to create a dress. The flower is a flat back. The background layer is from a tone on tone SEI pad.

Indian Birthday

Good Morning Ladies,
The weekend is flying by. Dude and I are off to a Freestyle seminar today.
The card for today is Indian Birthday
 This card started with the Indian and teepee image from Embossing Arts. This image was stamped on white cardstock with a pigment based ink. It was then embossed with clear embossing powder from Ranger. It was torn away and the edges were inked. The scene was colorized with art markers. The sentiment is from Art Impressions. Washi tape tops this card off.

The inside sentiment is from the Stamps of Life. A feather was added to follow the Indian theme.

Fairy Queen

Good Morning Ladies,
The weekend has arrived. What will I do with it? One thing I am doing is going to the freestyle seminar with Dude!
The card for today is Fairy Queen
This card started with the star embossing folder from De'sire. This is a large 8x8 embossing folder. I have had it for some time now. The ferns under the fairy queen are cut with a Memory Box die. The fairy queen was a gift of bare rubber from my sister. There was no company on the back of the stamp so I don't know where it is from. She was stamped on Bristol paper and colorized with watercolor crayons, and mica palette paint from US Art Quest. The flowers are from Creative Expressions and have had a pearl added for the centers. 
This is the inside sentiment. It is from a Crafter's Companion set by Sheena Douglass.
Happy Scraps,
