Family Is Everything - Raccoons

Hello,  Friends.  I am back today to share a couple of cards that I made using Blue Knight's Rubber Stamps "Family Is Everything".  My challenge from Blue Knight was to make two cards using this set showing a winter season and then to show another season on the second card.  This first card is definitely wintry with the ice on the front of it.  Okay,  I confess, it really is not ice, but I did use clear embossing powder on the image to make it appear to be icy.    Before I applied the clear embossing, I used a white gel pen to create the snow.
For the second card, I decide to do a card for the Christmas season.  I had fun with this one.  I colored the image, added some glaze to the eyes of the raccoons and popped some cute little Santa hats on them.  I added Holly under the raccoons to help make their little home look like Christmas.  Thanks, so much, for coming by to check out my cards today.  It is very appreciated.

I will be back real soon with another card I made with the little raccoons.  I just couldn't stop with two cards with this sweet stamp set.

Seasonal Woodland Cards

Hello, my crafty friends.  We just changed times in the United States yesterday.  We have Daylight Savings Time.  It is always a hard adjustment trying to regulate our bodies to waking up an hour earlier than we were.  I, personally, prefer to have one time for the whole year instead of changing twice a year.

Today my first card is a Christmas card with a winter sky to share with you.  The image that I used is the Blue Knight Rubber Stamp Seasonal Woodland.  I used the Blue Knight Day and Night Pan Pastels, Sunrise and Sunset Pan Pastels and a Heidi Pettie cloud stencil.  I added pink die cut words and a silver deer die cut using glitter paper.  On the bottom of the image,  I added glitter for the snow.

My second card is done with the same main image, but I made it a Fall Card using the Fall colors in the clouds.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil, Day & Night Pan Pastels and Sunrise and Sunset Pan Pastels.  The sentiment is from the Bible Verse 2 stamp set.

Have a great week and thank you, for stopping in today.

Blue Knight Anything, But A Card

Hello, Stamping Friends.  Today I made a gift bag for the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog.    Our challenge for this week was to make anything, but a card.  This is the first gift bag I have made.   I started out with a brown paper lunch sack.  I layered card stock and designer paper on the lower part of the sack.  On the top part I used a scalloped die to cut scallops with the same papers.  I stamped my wreath image (Thank You Wreath) on white card stock and used a circle die to cut it out.  I added a scalloped layer behind it following with another white circle to complete my layers.  My image was colored using Copics.  I used dimensionals to attach my image to my gift bag.  I put glaze on the bee's wings.  I stamped my bee image  from the  Honey Bee and Sunflower stamp set and colored it with Copics. I fussy cut the bee from the flower image.   To finish off my bag,  I used white tulle to make a bow to tie down the flap of the bag.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  I hope to see you again real soon.

Winter Friends

I am so far behind on Christmas cards so I am happy that I got one more made this morning, thanks, to a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  I don't know if you can tell, but I absolutely love this cute stamp set by Blue Knight called Winter Buddies.  You will be seeing me use it a lot more.  There are just so many color combos that I can use on those scarves. ~grin~  More cards to come, I bet. 

I used Copics to color the images.  The sky was made with turquoise ink,  the Heidi Pettie
cloud stencil and a sponge dauber.  Easy peasy.

Thanks, for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Barnyard Birthday

Today I am sharing a card I made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I used the Barnyard Gate and  I'll never stop believing stamp sets.    For the month of October the Blue Knight design team was challenged to combine stamps.  I was suppose to use the I'll Never Stop Believing set and I decided to pair it with barnyard gate.  I loved the finished product.  I think this little gal is having a great birthday party in the barn.  I can visualize birthday decorations inside and places set up for birthday games.  Oh, wait, there is a cute little pony with braida and ribbons all saddled up waiting to give pony rides.

This was a fun card to make.  I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

I colored the image with copics and sponged the clouds using the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil.

Looks like it is going to be a rainy and stormy day in my neck of the woods.  Lots of rain and wind. The weather radio woke me up early this morning so I might have to catch a nap later.  :)

Have a great day and I hope you have some nice weather in your neighborhood.

I  love this sweet little pup that is from Sweet & Sassy.  It is really old, it actually was a digital stamp.  I lost this image when lightening crashed my computer and I didn't have it backed up.
Anyway, I had colored this image years ago and I decided to use it on a card for a Splitcoast Stampers challenge.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The paper is old, too, but like the pup, I didn't tire of it either.  ~smile~

Mountain Scenes

Here are two cards I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Mountain Scene and theMama Bear and Friends Set.  The sentiment on the snow globe came from the Come Let Us Adore Him stamp set.  I colored my mountains using Copics.  The sky on both cards were made using Pan Pastels. 

Don't forget the Fans Of Blue Knight Challenge is still going on.
