Grace & Peace by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Today I'm sharing two cards created using the Grace & Peace
 stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. 
It is a beauty!!!

Both of the cards are created using PanPastels and
a small circle stencil mask.  I love the look of this card!!!


As the background was being created using the PanPastels the
mask was placed to created a half circle. When the background
was completed the mask was lifted leaving a blank space for
 the sentiment.


The same technique as above, except the mask was placed over the giraffe
 after the image was stamped on the mixed media cardstock.  The sentiment
was stamped on cardstock, trimmed out and added to the card front
using dimensional adhesive.
Products used:
 Blue Knight Rubber Stamps: Grace & Peace
PanPastels:  Sunrise & Sunset
other: mixed media cardstock, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L,
Darkroom Door (sm circle stencil)

Walk by Faith with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
I have a couple of cards to share using the Walk by Faith
stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.

I usually shy away from purple but in this case it was needed.  I love
what the color purple added to this card.  The sentiment is awesome too!!! 

The sky was added using the colors from the Day & Night of PanPastels.
The elephant image was stamped several times using a stamping platform.
The trick is getting a strong ink coverage for the silhouette elephants.

Card#2 ~
The second card was created the same way except the purple was left out and a deep
blue was added. It is kind of a royal blue. Very pretty!!
Products used: Blue Knight Rubber Stamps: Walking by Faith
PanPastels:  Day & Night set
other: twine, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, cardstock

Pillow Boxes with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L~

Hi guys!
It is my turn on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog today.
I have created some Easter themed pillow boxes using some
pretty powerful adhesives.  Always easy to create when projects stay
To decorate the boxes I pulled out my scraps of paper and trim and started there.
I used stamps for the Bunny and the sentiments.  The boxes are stuffed with Easter
 grass and candy.  However for the non-candy people these make great
cash or gift card boxes.
Products used:
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Dots 3D, 3D Foam Squares Black Mixed
HomeHobby by 3L: Dual Tip Glue Pen, Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/8" and
Extreme Double Sided Tape 1/4"

Abstract 08 by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I have a couple of cards to share using the newly
released stamp called Abstract 08 by Darkroom Door.This is a fun stamp and goes so well with the other abstract
in the Darkroom Door product line.

These are created on the #10 size manila tag by Ranger.  On both of these tags
 the background was created with Distress Oxide inks.  The bottle tag is stamped
with Number Medley set to give that aged and vintage look.  The succulent tag
 is stamped with the Abstract 08 stamp in random places creating a
background for the Succulent images to be clustered together.  On both
tags the focal images were stamped and then trimmed out. The images
were then adhered with dimensional adhesive to the tag front.

Sloth Stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
I have a cutie to share today.  This is one of the newly released
stamps by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Sloth!  Love the
sentiment that comes with the stamp ~perfect!!!!

Card#1 ~
The card on the left is colored with PanPastel's and the card on the
right is colored with Distress Oxide ink watered down.
I used the Day & Night set by PanPastel. The colorless blender comes
in handy when blending the colors.

After the card was colored using the Distress Oxides ink, the edges were torn
and then adhered using dimensional adhesive to add dimension to
 the card front.  Extra leaves were stamped out and placed around
the sentiment.
Products used: Blue Knight Rubber Stamps: Sloth
PanPastels: Day & Night
other: Distress Oxide ink, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
