Ski Lodge by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys! 
I have cards to share from the NEW 
release by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. This one is 
called Ski Lodge.  It is so cool!!
Has so many way you can create scenes with it.
Here is what I did with this set~


It is a snow scene, so the pine trees and cabin are the main area to color.
The fun part is adding silhouette images or vehicles. The first card I added
the hiking guy from the Silhouette Sportsmen set and created a sky.
The cabin is colored with panpastels. Sky and bird was added. 
 The Birds 2 set is what is used here. The sentiment is from the
  Better Things Ahead set.
The second card is colored with panpastels. The jeep is stamped separately
 and cut out, then added to the card front.  It is from the Daring Adventure set.
A sticker is added for the sentiment.

Mixed Media Tags with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L~

Hi guys!
Today is my turn on the Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L
 Blog
sharing a couple mixed media tags.  I
used the Adhesive Sheets 4X6 and embossing powder
to create the background.  


I have a tutorial up over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog
 with all the details.  Here is a look at the supplies I used to get started~


Once the background was created I added another layer of ink,
using stamps and stencils by Darkroom Door.  


I also collaged some vintage text in random spots on the front
of the tags.  Really fun project!  These tags will look great in an 
Art Journal or for gift giving.

Thanks for stopping by.

Treasure Chest by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Sharing another stamp from the NEW release called

 It is a beauty!!! 


The first is created with panpastels for the water and a stencil by
Paper Artsy.  Colored pencils are used to highlight
the sea weed and Treasure Chest.  Stickers are used for the sentiment.
The second card is created the same way with panpastels and
colored pencils but cut with a die by Sizzix called

work so well for this die.

Swatching Foils with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L~

Hi guys!
My turn on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog today.
I have a fun and a useful project to share.  I wanted
to swatch the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets so I would 
have a color reference.  


I ended up swatching all five sets by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
I used the Film Strip Stamp by Darkroom Door to match
my ink swatches.  I can add tabs and have them all on one "o" ring.


The swatches were labeled with color and name of set.  I used
a label maker for this. 
I have a tutorial up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog.
Hope you will take a look.

Pin It!!
