Autumn Squirrel for the 4th of July

I have been trying to use my stamps differently than they were intended this month to show you how to stretch your stamps and have some fun.  I made this card using the Blue Knight Autumn Squirrel stamp.   There are no rules that says we cannot use just part of a stamp so I just fussy cut my little squirrel and colored him blue with Prisma Pencils.  I went online and found this a coloring page so Mr. Squirrel would have a 4th of July hat.  I had this flag stamp laying around so I thought it would be perfect for this card.  The sentiment is from Blue Knight's God Bless America stamp set.  My background was made using acrylic paints and a toilet paper roll.

 Here is a picture I took of the actual picture on the stamp to show you what it looked like before I cut the little squirrel from the image.  Who would have thought you could make a 4th of July card with an Autumn stamp?  I didn't until I started thinking about new ways to use stamps that I have.

Thank you, for coming by today to take a look at my card.  I appreciate your visits and input.

Fall Birthday - Wooded Farmlands

Last week I had a Summer card made with  Blue Knight 's Wooded Farmlands stamp.   I had mentioned that I would show you how to use this stamp  in different ways this month.  Today you are seeing a Fall card I made with it.   I really like the way it looks with these colors.  I colored the image using Copics and the sky was made with Pan Pastels. 

Thank you,  for coming by today.

Scenic Overlook with Pan Pastels

I made this card using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Scenic Overlook and also added the
Beach Chairs & Accessories  set for the sailboats.  I haven't had much time to play with my Pan Pastels so instead of cleaning this morning,  I went to my craft table to have a little fun.  I do not have a lot of colors of the Pan Pastels so my water and sky seem to blend together.  I need a turquoise which happens to be in one of  the special sets that were made especially for Blue Knight.   They should be in the their store by tomorrow so I will be making an order.  I colored the bank with Prisma Pencils, the boats were colored with Copics and the sky, water and ground were colored using Pan Pastels.  I still need lots of practice, but I was happy with the way the sky turned out.

Well, folks, it is time for me to get back to that boring cleaning.  You all enjoy what is left of the day.  I appreciate you stopping in today.  Come back soon.

Wooded Farmlands - Blue Knight

This card is up on the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog today.  I have used the Wooded Farmlands
stamp and I will be using it each week for the remainder of the month to show different ways to use it.  I colored my image using Copics.  I created the sky using Pan Pastels.   (Pan Pastels will soon be in the Blue Knight Store and packaged much differently than the ones you have seen in stores)  I added a verse from the Bible Verse 2 Set.  I thought my card needed a little color, you know I like color, so I added a little red tractor.

Be sure to check each week this month to see how I have used this stamp differently.  I am having fun creating with it.  I am amazed at how this stamp can be used so many different ways.

Have a wonderful and blessed day.

Country Lane Riders

Today I have paired my Cowgirl and Cowboy silhouette stamps with my Country Lane Stamp.  Both stamp sets are by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I colored my image using Copics and the silhouettes were stamped with Ranger Archival Ink.  The clouds were made with a template from the Blue Knight Store and Turquoise ink.

Please join us over at the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog.  There will be a lot of new cards on it this week.

Thanks, so much, for stopping in today to see my card.  Have a great week.

A Stormy Night

I am the host over at Splitcoast Stampers for the Free 4 All challenge today.  I chose the theme "Storms Never Last".  Basically it means to make a card with a storm on your card.  I have had this image colored and laying on my craft table for a couple of weeks.  I made a stormy night background for him using Distress Inks.  By the looks of the clouds, this horse needs to go to the barn and take cover.  The stamp I used today is the Blue Knight Standing Horse

I appreciate you coming by today.  I would love to see you post your cards to my challenge on Splitcoast.

Have a great weekend.

Dirt Roads - Don't Look Back

Hi, everyone,  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.   I had a good one, but it was busy and it really wore me out.  How about you?

Today I have a card to show you that is featured on the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps blog today.  I used the Dirt Roads stamp and added the Don't Look Back cowboy silhouette stamp with it.  I love the fact that I have many scenic stamps by Blue Knight that pairs so well with the silhouette stamps.  I am sure you can tell that I am really enjoying my Silhouette Cowboys.  I colored my image with copic markers.  I stamped my silhouette using Ranger Archival Ink.  My clouds were made using this cloud stencil.

I want to welcome my newest follower, Pinky.  I am so glad to have you following my blog.

Thanks, to all of you, for coming by today.  I hope to see you again soon.
