Happy Hedgehog

Hello Friends,  I hope you all are well and doing fine.  It is a brand new week and I do wish for you to have a good one.   There is a lot of rain in the forecast in my neck of the woods, but it will probably change a couple of times and who knows,  maybe it won't rain.  :).   The temps are getting rather warm, I think I will have to turn the air on soon.

I have two cards to share with you that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps new
Happy Hedgehog stamp set.  
For my first card, I stamped my image on white card stock, colored it with Copic's.  I wanted to make my Hedgie stand out a little more so I stamped him a second time, fussy cut him and added him over the top of the previously stamped Hedgie.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil to make my clouds along with  a sponge dauber and turquoise ink.  

The second card was made the same way.  I used different colors of Copics to give a little different look.  I sponged the sky using Marvy Euchida light blue ink and the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil.  It was the first time I had used it and I was happy with the color of the ink.

Lily Pond

Hi, Stampers.  I am back today with cards made with another new release from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  The stamps I am using are called "Lily Pond".

I stamped my image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used the Heidi Pettie cloud stencil  and blue ink to sponge the clouds.    I stamped a sentiment over  the clouds using the Blue Knight BibleVerses 2.

I colored this card using Copics using different colors than I did in the first card.  For the sky, I used Pan Pastels.

Beau-tea-ful Easel Card

Hi Stampers, today I have another new release stamp set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps to share with you.  This set is called "Beau-tea-ful.  For one of our cards, Blue Knight challenged us to make an Easel card.

I followed directions and made the easel card.  I stamped my image and colored it with Copics with the exception of the cup.  I also stamped on a piece of patterned paper and fussy cut the image.  I really like the looks of paper piecing.

For my next card,  I decided color the image using blues and I fussy cut the cup from patterned paper.  I actually made four cards with this stamp set and fussy cut the cup on each one.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  Come back again soon.

Meadows and Mountains

Hi Everyone, it is time for me to show you a couple of cards I made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps latest release.  I used the Meadows and Mountains stamps.   I still find it amazing to see how you can use the same stamp on two cards and make them look so different.  Here is the first card I made using this set.

I stamped my image and I colored it using Copic Markers.  I left the flowers white and I really like how they look.   I used Pan Pastels and Heidi Pettie cloud stencil to make my sky.  

This card was made the very same way as the first card with the exception that I used different colors.    Which colors do you like best?  My favorite is the first one with the white flowers.

For additional inspiration with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, head over to the the Blog.  There, you will find the other design team members cards for you to view.  We invite you to join us on the Fans of Blue Knight Rubber Stamps on Facebook.    There are many cards shown there by the design team and by the fans.  Check it out I think you will like it.

Cowboy Up and a Dragon that likes Ketchup

Today I am sharing cards that I made with one of my Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - The Avenue.  We were challenged to use at least two additional Blue Knight Stamps with this image.  For the first card I used Cowboy Hero, Cowboy Up and Rear View Truck.  I thought these worked perfectly together.  I was pretty pleased with this card.  The sentiment is not showing up well on this card.  It looks much better on the card, in real life, although it did want to blend in with the grass a little.   After I stamped my The Avenue image on white card stock, I colored the grass and the road using Copic.    I brushed Pan Pastels on the sky.  I stamped the truck, colored it and adhered to the card.  I added the cowboys and the sentiment.

I stamped The Avenue stamp on white card stock and used Pan Pastels to color the complete Avenue image and the Fire Breathing Dragon.   I have to say this coloring went really quick.    It is the first time I have used the Pan Pastels to color the whole card.  I usually just do the sky.   I colored my Dragon and fussy cut it and attached it to my card.  I added the Dragon Sentiments last.

For more inspiration for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps,  you can view their blog HERE and you can also so to Facebook and join the Fans Of Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  You will find lots of cards and ideas there.

Sorrowful Pup

Today I am showcasing the Sorrowful Pup stamp set from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I have made two cards that show how to use this stamp as a Pet Sympathy card.  I hope you like them.

I started out by stamping my dog on white card stock.  I wanted to use the I'm so sorry sentiment, but there was not room for the whole stamp.  I took scotch tape and put it over the "I'm'" and inked up the stamp being careful not to get a lot of ink on the tape.  I took my shammy and wiped off the tape so I did not get any unplanned ink  on my card stock.  I do not like to cut my sentiments apart so this was a great way to make my sentiment work with the image without damaging the actual stamp.  I colored my image using my Copics.  I wanted to sponge some clouds on the sky, but I really thought it would look best without clouds.  Besides I think I use to many clouds on my cards, sometimes.  I don't want them all to look a like.  Next I pulled out my oval dies and cut our my image and also cut the layer.  The rest is pretty easy, I picked my paper and made layers for my card base.

For this card, I decided I wanted something different than what I have made in a while.  I actually prefer a clean looking card, but felt like I needed to mix it up a little.  My SU corner punch came to mind and I decided to use it for this card.  I stamped my images on white card stock, colored the pup with Copics.  I used my Heidi Pettie cloud stencil and turquoise ink to make my sky.  I cut the layer for the pup image and pulled out my corner punch.   I punched each piece in all four corners and attached them.  I made a small panel to go under the one side of the image.  I attached everything to the patterned paper and adhered to the card base.  I decided it needed a little bling on it so I took rhinestone paw prints and added to the corners.

I hope you will check out the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog to view the cards that my team members have made.  You will find their blog information there, as well.  You can also visit the Blue Knight Facebook Fans Page.   There are always cards there to view and some have tutorials.

I appreciate you stopping in to see my cards today.  Let me know what you think of them.  Have a good week.

More Precious

Hello, Friends.  Hope this finds all of you doing well.  We had a quiet Easter.  I think many others had the same situation due to the virus.  We usually have our kids here for dinner, but things were different this year.  I am okay with with staying in as long as everyone stays well.

Today I have two cards to share with you that were made with  the Blue Knight Rubber Stamp

I started out by stamping the flowers and the sentiment on white card stock.  I colored the flowers using Copic.   I chose a white and yellow checked ribbon to use in the middle of the two stamps.  I don't tie pretty bows so  I used a fork to tie my bow.  I then matted the image on yellow and pink card stock.

For my second card, I wanted to use patterned paper.  Seems like I am not using as much of it as I once did.    I stamped my image on a square of white card stock.  I chose Copics that matched with my paper.  I like blue and purple colors together.   They seemed to match my paper quite well.
The sentiment is from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.   The name of the set is called 
Bible Verses 2.

Be sure and check out the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog to view the cards that my team
mates have made this week.  You can also visit the Blue Knight Facebook Fan Page.  There are lots of card posted there using the Blue Knight stamps.
