More Running Horses

I am still playing with the Oxide Inks and the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Running Horses.  I love this set and my oxide inks.    The first one I did in Spring colors for the Free 4 All challenge and the second one has stars for the Ways To Use It  challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.   I hope you aren't tired of seeing these horses yet.  :)  I also have some new brushes that I have been playing with.  They work much better than the sponge daubers I have been using.

Thanks, for coming by today.  All visits and comments are much appreciated.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Blue Knight - Galloping Horses

This card was made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called "Galloping Horses".
I sponged Distress Oxide Inks on the background and spritzed with water.  I love making backgrounds like this.

Blowing Kisses

Isn't this little gal just adorable?  This is an image by Squigglefly and the artist is Lynne Stansbery.  As most of you know, Squigglefly is no more and I find that sad.  Lynne was a great artist and I learned yesterday that she is no longer drawing.   ~sad~  She had some amazing images on Squigglefly and they were always so easy to color,  including this one.

The four colors on my image were chosen from the color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

We have been having some really cold temps.  I think the wind chill was -6 this morning.  It has warmed up to 23  degrees now.   A real heat wave.  :)  On the bright side, Spring is almost here.

Have a wonderful day no matter what the weather is in your neighborhood.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Lighthouse on the Beach

I made this card using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Lighthouse on the Beach.   This is a beautiful picture all year long, but with all the snow and cold we have had lately, it looks even better.  Oooh, that sand and that pretty blue water!

I colored the image using Copics and I used a white gel pen on the water.  The beach ball and sailboats are from the Blue Knight Stamps  Beach Chairs and accessories

Little Girl Vintage Birthday

Here is a half shutter card I made with a Crafty Secret Stamp set that I recently found in a basket for sale in an antique mall.  It has some really cute images.   The paper pad that I used has been in my stash forever and it went perfect with this image.

Thanks, for taking a look at my card.  Have a great week.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Coffee Makes Me Tolerable

Here is a card I made with Blue Knights Rubber Stamps using a stamp from their new release called "Coffee Makes Me".   Yes, coffee makes me tolerable, most days.   My dear husband might not agree with that, but I am not going to ask him.  ~giggle~  The sentiment can be used as one stamp or you can cut it to make it two so you can use the Coffee separate if you want.  I like it both ways.  I haven't cut mine into two yet, but I think I will.

Thanks, so much for coming by today.  Have a great weekend.

Marilyn's Lighthouse

This card was made using Our Daily Bread/Divinity Stamps - Keep My Lamp Burning.  I have always loved this lighthouse and I finally purchased it a few months ago.  I decided it was time to use it.   The background was made with my Gelli Plate and Acrylic Paints.   

I will be back tomorrow with a Blue Knight Rubber Stamps card.

Blue Knight Stamps Release Party - Day 5 - Panda Bear

Today is the last day of the blog hop and it has been a fun week.  I have enjoyed designing with the new Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  Today I have made a card for you that I made with the new
Loveable Panda.  This little guy is adorable.  I stamped him on card stock using my Misti.  I used copics to color the tree.  I used a template to sponge the clouds using tempting turquoise ink.  I think the little bear looks pretty  happy up there among the clouds.

This might be the last day of the hop, but keep coming by,  I will continue to have more cards made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps in the days to come.

Have a safe and fun weekend.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Release Party - Day 4

 Today I am showcasing the new "Dancing in the Rain" stamp set by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This little gal looks like she is having a great time splashing in the puddles.  The minute I saw this stamp - paper piecing and primary colors came to my mind so that is what I went with.  As you can see, I paper pieced the little girl's jacket using red polka dot paper.  If you haven't ever paper pieced, it is fun and looks cute.  Just stamp your image on patterned paper and and cut out the part you want to use, add adhesive and apply to your image.  I punched a yellow heart to add to the umbrella.  The image was colored with copics.  I added glaze to the raindrops, but it does not show up in the picture.

My second card was colored with copics.  No paper piecing on this one.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Release Party - Day 2

 My first card was made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Multiple Motorcycles.  The set consists of three stamps.  I chose to use the largest one for my card.  I used a background from my stash that was made with my Gelli Plate and acrylic paint.    I decided I had to make a girly card with this set, lots of gals have their own motorcycles.  The sentiment was computer generated.
This is the male version using the same motorcycle stamp.    The background is a water color wash.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Release Party - Day 1

Here is a card I made using the new Blue Knight Rubber Stamp called Corner Flowers.  There is another flower stamp that goes with this set, but I did not use it for my card today.  This is a different color combo for flowers. (at least for me, it is)  I like the colors, they are happy colors.  We have had a lot of dreary weather so I am liking bright and happy colors even more than normal.

Be sure and check out all the neat new stamps that are in the Blue Knight Store.  Just click on "New Products" to see them all. 

You will find details below on our release party.  There is a designer scheduled for each day to show you a beautiful card or cards.  Today you will go to Purples Lake Stamps Blog.

Doggone Sick

I made this card for a sick friend.  I had a scrap piece of paper left over from another card so I used it along with pink card stock.  The stamp is "Ruff Day" by Dare 2B Artzy.  The inside sentiment says,
"My tail stopped wagging when  I heard you weren't well". 

Thank you, for stopping in today.

Blue Knight Silhouette Wolf

Here is my latest creation using a Blue Knight's Rubber Stamp.  This one is the Silhouette Wolf.
I started out using a polished stone background made with alcohol inks.  I thought the colors in the background were perfect for the silhouette wolf.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps is gearing up for a new release.  They have lots of new stamps.  The week of February 18th will be the blog hop.  They will be giving a couple of prizes out that week.  Be sure to visit my blog that week for more information.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Magical Unicorn

I made this card using a stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Magical Unicorn.  I colored the image with copics to match the magical background made with Ken Oliver Color Bursts. 

The color burst are really easy to use.  I started out with a piece of water color paper.   I squirted the color bursts on the the paper and spritzed with water.  Once you spritz the paper,  you can repeat the process if you want more color.  For this background I used the colors of Ultramarine Blue, Violet and Pthalo Green. 

Thank you, for stopping by to check out my card.  Have a great week.

Fire Breathing Dragon Birthday

Today I am sharing a card with you that I made for a humorous birthday.  I used the Blue Knight Rubber stamps Fire Breathing Dragon and the Silhouette Forest.  

I know that typically these two stamp sets do not go together, but I wanted to tie them together for a birthday card. This Fire Breathing Dragon is anxious to light the candles on the birthday cake and get this party rolling. :)

Thanks,  so much,  for coming by and taking a look at my card.   Your visits and comments are so appreciated.

Recycled Christmas Cards

 This is my week to Free 4 All challenge hostess the challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I thought it would be fun to recycle some Christmas cards.   

On my first card  is a Diorama, but you can't tell that from the picture.  I cut the cute truck from a Christmas card to use in the center with my snow mounds.

The second card was made using some Buffalo Plaid Paper/Card stock from a Christmas card.   I absolutely fell in love this shiny plaid.  Looks like Santa's suit was all ready for him to jump in on Christmas Eve.   :)

Thanks, so much, for coming by and taking a look at my cards.  Between the holidays and being sick, I have not been able to get to all of your blogs lately, but I am hoping for things to be back to normal and I will get back to commenting more.   

Happy New Year, to all of you and your families.
