Sunflower Sunshine by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with  Sunflower Sunshine by Blue
Knight Rubber Stamps. 
This is really a pretty 
stamp. You will love creating with it!!



Card 1~


The background is created using Distress Oxide inks.  I
colored in the Sunflower image with Distress Oxides and then
re-stamped.  The sentiment is embossed on black cardstock. The 
finished card front is speckled with black and white acrylic 
paint.

Card 2~


The background for this card is created using a stencil and Distress
Oxide inks.  The large Sunflower is colored with Distress
Oxide inks. The sentiment is embossed and layered over an
ephemera piece from an old dictionary. So fun!!
Both cards used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere
 the cards together.

An Art Journal Page with Topflight Stamps~

 Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with PaperArtsy stamps and stencils for
Topflight Stamps.  So Fun!! I decided to work in my
art journal.  I love making backgrounds using Distress
Oxide ink, Archival inks and some acrylic paint. A bonus
is adding in ephemera!


I used four different PaperArtsy stamp sets by Sara Neumann (love her stamps)
and one Eclectic set.  The stencils are awesome for creating an
unique background on your art journal pages. Adhesive that was 
used is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3l.


As always the details are on the Topflight blog.  I hope you will
be inspired to create!!! Whatever way you want!

Daisy Chain Border Stamp by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!!
I have been creating with the new Daisy Chain
Border stamp
by Darkroom Door and it is 
super cute!!!!


This is a great addition for slimline cards or the border
for a creative scrapbook page.



To create this card using the Daisy Chain Border Stamp I stamped out
the border stamp on 12 X 12 white cardstock (the stamp is long) and
 colored it with Distress Oxide inks.  Then I cut it the length of my
card.  I had about a 1/4 of the border left.  I cut those flowers out individually 
and created a cluster around the vintage lady (Tim Holtz/ Paper Doll die cuts).
The background is Distress Oxide/Antique Linen and the stamps are
 Number Medley. Also used is Carved Leaves Vol.1 and You Are
Everything set. 
It is all put together with adhesive by
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  Buttons are by Buttons Galore & More.


When I start a new project I always stamp way more than I need, so these
tags are created with the left over Daisy Chain Border flowers.  The
background is the NEW Small Honeycomb stencil and the NEW Small
Tropical Leaves stencil.  I used Archival ink on, handmade, white
 cardstock tags. The Tropical Leaves are outlined with a black
sharpie pen.

Saluting Soldier by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

 Hi guys!
I have  a couple of cards to share using Saluting Soldier
by Blue Knight Rubber StampsMy dad was a soldier
so I love this military stamp set. 



The first card, the image is stamped on pattern paper in three sections.
I used a stamping platform, so I could re-stamp as many times as needed
to get good coverage. The sentiment and stars are from the God
Bless America set.
  Archival/Jet Black ink is used for the stamping.
The second card, the background is a collage of acrylic paints to resemble
camo.  The saluting soldier images are stamped and cut out. 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is the adhesive of choice. 
Quick and easy cards!!

Small Stamps by Darkroom Door

Hi guys!
Darkroom Door has come out with the cutest small stamps and
I had the good fortune of creating with a couple of them.


First up is Who What Where When stamp.  Great for a party invite
or scrapbooking. 


The background is created using the NEW Small Checkered stencil.
It is really cute!!! So many ways to use it too!!!  I added some Tim Holtz
Paper Dolls to the top of the stamped Who What Where When image.
I used the Alphabet Medley stamps to add the words to the
Who What Where When image. The script word is
from the Birthday Greetings set, also new!!!


Next is the Mark The Date stamp.  It is another stamp that is great for cards
and scrapbook pages.

 
On this one I used the candles, behind the Mark The Date image and added
 the script word Celebrate from the NEW Birthday Greetings set.
The Small Checkered stencil is used as the background. Distress Oxide is the
ink on both cards. The adhesive used on both cards is by 
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Hope you will check out the new release.
