Bridge & Stream by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps ~

Hi guys!
I have a couple of cards to share using the NEW
Bridge & Stream stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
This another stamp that is great to pop a silhouette image

Both of these cards are easy to create and will take about 30 minutes
to start to finish.  I just love projects like that. 
Gives you more time to create more cards!  
The top card is stamped over a Distressed Oxide/mixed media
type background.  I used Distressed Archival Ink/Hickory Smoke.  
Then the Bible Verse 1 and the Silhouette Sportsman were added.
The second card is stamped directly onto vintage text paper.
I used Distress Archival Ink/Ground Espresso.  Added a word
sticker for the sentiment. Along with the  Boys and Pets stamp. 
Adhesive, for these projects, are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I use this on all my inks. Makes such a difference!!!
You won't drop the ink pad on your project.
 Love it!

Buck, Doe and Fawn by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

 Hi guys!
I have some cards to share using the NEW Buck, Doe and Fawn
stamps by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I really
love these stamps, hmm I wonder why :):). We raise and see
lots of deer and it is such a treat!! I'm a sucker for a red
rubber deer stamp:)

The top two cards are created using a stencil (for the background) and 
ink sprays. So easy!! I added sentiments from the Bible Verses 1, Family
Is Everything
and then put some birds in the sky from the Birds 2 set.

This card is created with panpastels. I used a mask to create a Sunset
and stamped the Buck and Doe in the center.  The sentiment is a
word strip sticker. The scene is the tree and stream stamp. The bird is from
 the Birds 2 set. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
