Policeman by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
My turn to share  one of the new silhouette stamps from 
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  There is six new silhouette
stamps and I'm creating with the Policeman.


You not only get the silhouette (Policeman stamp) but two
other related to law enforcement.  I think it is a great set.

Card 1~
A background was created using a brick wall stencil
(Darkroom Door) and Grey Distress Oxide ink. 
The images were stamped out on
white cardstock and cut out.  The emblem (flag) was masked off to get
the colors blue and red in the right places. 
All adhesive used is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Card 2~

The images were stamped in random spots on
grey cardstock. I used grey ink for the images also. The 
Policeman is stamped in black ink using a 
stamping platform.  The stars and sentiment are from the 
God Bless America set. The sentiment is embossed
with white embossing powder.

Beach Bird by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
I'm creating with the newly released Beach Bird by
Blue Knight Rubber Stamp This is a great stamp for
creating notecards.  


I used different color mediums on each card.  Panpastels for 
the top card and Distress Oxide inks for the bottom card. 


The image was stamped using a stamping platform and then
re-stamped after the color was added. By re-stamping you really clean
 up the stamp lines and make them crisp.  I added stamps from the Foot Bridge
set and Daddy's Home set.  The sentiment is embossed with white 
embossing powder.


This card is created the same way as the top card but is colored
with Distress Oxide ink. 
I use adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for all of my projects.

Silhouette stamping with Topflight Stamps~

 Hi guys!
It is my turn on the Topflight Blog today.  I'm
creating with two stamps by Katzelkraft called 
KTZ198/deer and KTZ219/wildflowers. They are 
silhouette stamps and they are amazing!!


When stamping silhouette stamps, it is best to use a stamping
platform (Misti) so you can re-stamp several times to get solid
coverage and clean stamping lines. 
I have all the fun details on the Topflight Blog, I hope you will
take a look.

Iwo Jima by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
Working with another newly released stamps by
Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
I really love this one~
It is called Iwo Jima 


The Battle of Iwo Jima was an epic military campaign between
U.S. Marines and the 
Imperial Army of Japan in early 1945.
  American forces invaded the island on 
February 19, 1945
 and the ensuing Battle of Iwo Jima lasted for five weeks.
 In some of the bloodiest fighting of World War II, it’s believed
that all but 
 200 or so of the 21,000 Japanese forces on the
 island were 
 killed, as were almost 7,000 Marines.

Card #1
The image was stamped on mixed media paper and then
the sunset sky was created with PanPastels. The image 
was stamped using a stamping platform so the
image can be re-stamped several times.  This was you get a
 rich imprint.

Card #2
This card is created the same way as I described in the above
paragraph except the flag is painted with acrylic paints. The 
night sky was created with PanPastels.
All adhesives used in creating these cards are by
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Abstract 10 by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I'm sharing more of the newly released stamps by 
Darkroom Door.  Today I created two cards using the 
Abstract 10 (mixed media type stamp).  It reminds me of 
the "heart beat line".  The cards are created with that in mind. 


See what I mean? So cool looking.  It actually is Rachel's (owner of DD)
writing. Makes a lovely stamp.

Card #1~

These were created as slimline cards, because of the stamp.
I used Number Medley for the background with
Archival/Jet Black ink. The heart is from the Hearts set.
I stamped the image using stamping platform, so I could
re-stamp to get a dark imprint. The sentiment is Celebrate
 Sentiment stamp.

Card #2~

Another example of a great scribble line :):)
I used Distress Oxide inks to create the background and then
stamped over the background, using a stamping platform.
The butterflies and the sentiment are from the new
Spread Your Wings set. The sentiment is embossed with white
embossing powder. All cards are adhered using adhesive
by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Peaceful Retreat by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
I have been creating with more stamps from
the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps new release.  Today
I'm working with Peaceful Retreat. Such a beautiful stamp!


Card #1~


This card is stamped on mixed media paper and stamped with
Archival/Jet Black ink.  It is colored in with
Distress Oxide inks.  I added the ducks and the sail boat from
the Foot Bridge set. 

Card #2~


This card is stamped on heavy white cardstock and
stamped with Archival/Jet Black ink. I used a stencil
to erase a circle in the sky. I used PanPastels for the color.
The stencil was used again to create the glare in the water.
Love the look!!
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is used for adhesive on
both cards.
