Silhouette Dolphins by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with Silhouette Dolphins by
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  Another winner!!
The silhouette stamps are super fun and look amazing!


I really loved this stamp.  Very easy to create a strikingly beautiful
card.  PanPastels make it easy!!


This is the original version of the two cards created. Only 
Panpastels and Archival ink to create this card.  Stamp on
white cardstock and create a sunset with the Sunrise & Sunset
Palette.  Use the Day & Night Palette for the water.  I use a
 positioning platform so re-stamping is an option.  When using silhouette
stamps to get a strong, rich impression you will want to re-stamp
several times.


This card is really no different than the top except I stamped on
pattern paper. Yes, a first for me, but I love the look. I added a small 
Palm Tree from another stamp set called Palm Tree Beach.  I masked
off the small Palm Tree and with the positioning platform makes it easy.
The sentiment comes from the Palm Tree Beach set.  The small bird is 
from Birds 11 set.
All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Seashell Card with Topflight Stamps~

Hi guys!
Today is my turn on Topflight Stamps.  I made a card using Infusions, 
Darkroom Door Stamps and Crafty Individuals. Stamps.  The card
is using a Seashell  background stamp along with
the Infusions.  Love how it came out~



The background is stamped out and then colored in with Infusions.
The more you move the color around you will get variations of the colors.
I used a water brush for that.  A tip to share if the infusions dry out on
your non stick mat just add water to reconstitute.  No need to add more infusions.
 Add more water to lighten the color and dab off with a paper towel.

Silhouette Swans by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with a gorgeous stamp!!
You will love it.  It is called
Silhouette Swans and it is by Blue Knight
Rubber Stamps. 

This is another beautiful stamp that is in the new release this month.
You can take a look at ALL the new stamps here. 


The first card is showcasing the stamp set.  You get 5 stamps with
the Silhouette Swans. Wow!!! Four different sizes and one large 
Cattail Bush.  I created a lake with PanPastels and then stamped
the Swans and Cattail Bush with Archival/Jet Black ink. I laid a circle
stencil over to create a halo effect for the Swans in the back.


The second card is created the same way as the top card but this
one has added stamps.  I used Silhouette Cattails and Mini Greetings 1
to enhance the scene. It is really fun to add little stamps or
pieces of stamps to create a scene.  I love practicing!!

A Valentine's Day Card~ creating with Topflight Stamps!

 Hi guys!
It is my turn on the Topflight Stamps Blog today.
I'm creating with Darkroom Door stamps and some
 Distress Oxide ink for added color.


I started by creating a messy background, using Distress Oxides for the 
color, over the Arrows background stamp by Darkroom Door. The 
Fine leaves were stamped and then colored in with Distress Oxide ink.
I layered stamps from the Hearts and Label sets by Darkroom Door.
The butterflies were stamped  and colored and then cut out.  They were
added to the card front with dimensional adhesive. 

Products used:
Arrows Background Stamp by Darkroom Door
 

Hearts by Darkroom Door

Fine Butterflies by Darkroom Door


Vintage Label by Darkroom Door

Bridge Over Waterfall by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
This is my first blog post  as an official design team
member for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  Let
the creating begin~
Up first is two cards using the fabulous new stamp called
Bridge Over Waterfall.



One is a Summer scene card and the bottom for a Winter scene card.

The card is stamped using Archival/Jet Black ink. Color is added with 
PanPastels. I used both sets the Sunrise & Sunset  palette and the 
Day & Night palette.  The sky is lightly colored, just to add
a hint of blue. This card is created with no extra stamps added.


The second card is created in the same way as the above card.
PanPastels were used to add color to the scene. The Silhouette
Sportsmen
is a favorite of mine.  These guys look great on the banks
of the lake and water stamps. The Silhouette Moose was added among the 
Pine trees.  And I couldn't leave out the birds in the sky.
You will love the new release!! All month new stamps to see and
enjoy! 
The adhesive I create with is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Mixed Media Art Pages ~ Topflight Stamps!

Hi guys!!
I'm sharing my first project as a member of the
 Topflight Stamps Design Team.  Actually I'm a guest for January.
  I'm using some cool  products form all
around the world.  Stamps and stencils are a good
starting place~



The background is created using Distress Oxide ink and a stencil
by Visible Image called Mesh It Up.  I kept adding layers to create the 
mix media feel I was going for.  If you look real close you will see parts of
an old map.  Stamps were added and acrylic paint to tone down the green
background color.

The products are listed in the order I used them on the art journal pages.
