Pine Trees and Waterfall by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

  Hi guys!
Today I'm sharing two cards created using the NEWLY released
stamp called Pine Trees & Waterfall
by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
Made in USA product!!!!!



Both cards are stamped using Archival/Jet Black ink and are
colored with Panpastels.  The sky is masked off
on both cards, to use a circle punch out, to create the 
sun and moon.  Makes it so easy!!  The pine trees are stamped with
Archival /Library Green.  Just be careful and wipe around the pine trees 
with damp rag before stamping on the card front.  Then I stamped
with the Archival/Jet Black ink (but lightly around the
pine trees) to get the scene. The Jet Black ink highlighted the
pine trees.  Love the look it gave them.
I also added Silhouette Sportsman, Birds 2Momma bear & friends,
and Buck, doe & fawn to the cards.
All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Happy Mother's Day with Darkroom Door ~

Happy Mother's Day!!!
Today is your day, hope you enjoy such a special time
dedicated to  our wonderful Mothers.
I'm using the NEWLY released Artsy Hearts stamp and 
stencil by Darkroom Door to create my special Mother's Day card.



I used embossing powder to create a resist for the background.
The color is a mix of Distressed Oxide inks/Cracked Pistachio
and the NEW Saltwater Taffy. The embossing powder is by
Ranger/Wendy Vecchi called Tea Rose.  Coordinates with the
Saltwater Taffy so good.


I used several different stamps by Darkroom Door to add to the
mixed media feel of the card. Other stamps by Darkroom Door used are
Faded Circles, All Occasions and Number Medley (fave).
 I loved how it came together!!
The flower is from the Beautiful Blooms set and colored in with
the same inks I used for the background mix. I trimmed it out and used
dimensional adhesive. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Scenic Lake by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

 Hi guys!
Today I'm sharing the NEWLY released Scenic Lake
by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This is a beautiful
addition to the Scenery stamps that Blue Knight is 
known for.




Both cards are created in the same way.  The stamped image is colored with
panpastels and highlighted with colored pencils.  The top card is masked off
on the mountain top so the fawn from the Buck, Doe & Fawn set could be
added. The bottom card, the lake is masked off so half of the 
Silhouette Moose  could be added. I used Archival Jet Black ink on
both cards. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. So many 
possibilities to create your own scene with the help of a cool
stamp.  Blue Knight Rubber Stamps has plenty of that!!!

Spring Wreath~

Hi guys!
I thought I would share  the fresh and new 
wreath I created tearing up an old wreath 
and added a bunch of flowers I had on hand.
The "star of the show" is a cross cut
from one of trees on the ranch.


I used wire and hot glue.  The cross is heavy so it had to
be wired in. 


 

Up close of the cross.

Forever Friends by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

 Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with a NEWLY released stamp called
Forest Friends by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. Super cute!!
  It is framed out and because of 
that design, works well for a shaker card.
Card#1


To create the shaker card, stamp the image two times. Cut out the frame part
and color with Distress Oxide inks  what I used, but panpastels or
colored pencils will work). Glue  acetate film on the back of the frame
(sizing it to the size of the card). Take the second stamped print and
color in the Forest Friends. I used Distress Oxide inks.  Add dimensional
foam adhesive (seal off completely) to edges of the card front. Add sequins to the 
Forest Friends and then lay the card front over, sealing in the sequins. 
Add sentiment to the front of the card. 

Card#2
 

This card is stamped out and colored in with Distress Oxide
inks. The card front was matted and the sentiment added from 
the Daddy's Home set.
All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L.

Favorites from the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps January release ~

Hi Guys!
Wrapping up March with two of my favorite stamps
from the January release by Blue Knight Rubber
Stamps.  I love that they added Background stamps
to their stamp line.  Background stamps aren't just for a card but
also can be used in mixed media and art journal
pages.  I hope to show you some examples soon!
But for now these are my two favorite stamps with
the projects I created.
no.1


Tell Me The Story of Jesus
I love the sheet music, notes, lines ~ all looks great 
for a background.  But most of all I love the message
and the words!

You can check out the details HERE.

no.2

Tree Bark Background
This stamp has so many options going for it  and
that is why I love it.  It can be used as bark, stones,
water and texture.


You can check out the details HERE.
