Super Star Malamute

Good Morning Ladies,
It must be chilly out. I woke up this morning and the furnace is on. It felt good on the tile floor. I slept like a rock last night.
The card for today is Super Star Malamute
This is another card for the order I have. The star background was created using glossy paper and the star stencil from Memory Box. Tim Holtz distressed ink was used on this panel. The Malamute image is from Dog Stamps Plus. It is the other new image I purchased for this order. He is stamped on white card stock and hand cut. A paw print ribbon graces the side of this card. 
The inside sentiment is from CTMH.
Happy Scraps,

Princess Goodbye

Good Morning Ladies,
This is going to be a busy week. Too much to do! I am headed out this coming weekend to the Fort Wayne stamp show to see what's new. It is a camping trip also. Can't wait for all the fun with my friends.
the card for today is Princess Goodbye
This card started with the prince and princess on the winged horse. It is from a project I worked on a long time ago. It is an image from Stampington as well as the sentiment. It is embossed and colorized with mica paints from US Art Quest. It sits on a piece of black cardstock embossed with a Sheena embossing folder from Crafters Companion. The embossed piece was swiped with white ink.
This is the inside sentiment from CTMH.

Utility Glove Malamute Thank You

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a good weekend. Lots of creating and lots of laundry done. It was an easy weekend with no big rushing around. I am working on a card order. Today I am sharing one of the cards with you.... Utility Glove Malamute Thank You
I will give you a little info otherwise this card will make no sense at all. In dog obedience competition we have an excercise where the dog has to retrieve a glove. There are three gloves across the back of the ring and the dog is directed which glove to bring back to the handler. Now on with the card. I purchased the garden glove stamp sometime back. I don't know what company it is from but knew it would be perfect for dog cards. It was stamped on a tan textured cardstock and hand cut. I had to order a couple of new Malamute stamps from Dog Stamps Plus. If you need dog stamps that is the place to shop as they have many great depictions of different breeds. I stamped the Malamute on watercolor paper. It was then colorized with Stampin' Up watercolor crayons. It was also handcut. The sentiment is from Motivet Stamps. CTMH cardstock covers the base of the card.
This is the inside sentiment. This is a clear stamp by CTMH.

Joan's Fall Challenge

Good Morning Ladies,
I spent a good portion of yesterday creating cards for the order I have and I created a card for Joan's Fall Challenge .
Here is the link to the challenge... http://www.joanstouch.com/ Check in and see all of the challenge cards and join us in the challenge.
The requirements this week are as follows:
Do a fall theme
Alter things you have already cut and used.
Use an embossed background.
Use a product that can be purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/
Here is my card...
Nothing to me says fall like Halloween. Halloween cards are so much fun to create! So I have a lot of Halloween stuff left over from other projects past. The skeleton, pumpkins, and moon are my left over pieces. The pumpkins were stamped in a row so I cut them apart so they could be used each on their own. The pumpkins, skeleton, and moon are from Sunday International. This company in no longer in business. Back when I stamped these things I always embossed everything. So these are embossed. The pumpkins are popped up. The embossing folder I used is from Darice. It is called googly eyes. I inked the embossed panel with lime green cat's eye ink. I believe Terri can order this for you over at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ . The bats are cut from Memory Box die Swooping Bats #98409. This set of dies was purchased at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ . A ribbon graces the bottom of this card.
This is the inside sentiment with another pumpkin.
Once again thanks Joan for another great challenge!
Now to go see what I can do with some of the others things I found in my not used bread pans.
Happy Scraps,

CTMH Charmed Halloween

Good Morning Ladies,
I have been taking it easy this morning. Now I have to kick it in gear. Joan has a new challenge up and I have a card order for 12 thank you cards to create.
The card for today is CTMH Charmed Halloween
This is a simple card but I love the new Halloween paper from CTMH. So I wanted to be able to show it off under my stamped panel. The panel is stamped with a CTMH image from last year's collection. And it is a perfect match to this years collection. I love how they work it that way. 
This is the inside sentiment.
Happy Scraps,

Magnolia Fall

Good Morning Ladies,
We are headed into the weekend. I will be stamping and creating of course but I will also be working on the garage. So you never know what will turn up at my booth at the Co-op Shoppes when I do that.
The card for today is Magnolia Fall
This card started with the little girl with the lamb. This is a Magnolia stamp. I have a handful of Magnolia stamps and I must say they are some of my favorites. She was stamped on a watercolor paper panel. She was then masked and the twigs image from Stampscapes was stamped over her several times to cover the background. The panel was then colorized using Stampin' Up watercolor crayons. This panel was matted on brown cardstock. Fall text cardstock covers the card base. Rolled flowers in cream and brown grace the corner of the card. The flowers were created using a Sizzix die, and two Memory Box dies.
This is the inside sentiment.
Happy Scraps,

Chase Your Dreams Flip-It

Good Morning Ladies,
It's Thursday already. This week is flying by. It can slow down a little bit. Fall is my favorite time of the year.
The card for today is Chase Your Dreams Flip-It
The flip-it card base was created using the Stamps of Life exclusive flip-it die. The panel dies from the set were cut from dog paper. The tan square was cut using a Sizzix Frame-lits set. The image is from a Stampin' Up cling set. It is stamped using Archival ink in the color of coffee.
A close-up of the stamped image.
This is the flip side. The sentiment is from a CTMH clear set.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
