Background Trees

Hello, hope you all had a great weekend.  We celebrated Father's Day yesterday.   It was good to see both of our children.  We had a great visit.

Today I am showcasing cards made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Background Trees.  I am visualizing lots of uses for this stamp.

My first card was made by stamping the image on white card stock and then I used my Heidi Pettie Cloud stencil and DOX ink to create the clouds.   I added the Silhouette Sportsman stamp and viola my card is done.   An easy peasy card.  I like the pink sky.  It reminds me of how the sky looks sometimes in the early morning hours.  


My second card was even easier than the first card.  I used designer paper and stamped my image over it.  I then stamped the 
Silhouette Moose between the trees as a finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed the cards.  Don't forget to look at yesterdays post about the stamp sets.

Have a wonderful week and try to stay cool in the terrible heat that we have been having.

Stamp Give A Way

 Hi, everyone.  I am having the stamp give a way that I told you about.   Due to the changes in Feedburner, after July there will be no more automatic emails telling you when I have a new post or news.  Right now I am asking you to go to https://www.bloglovin.com and sign up to follow my blog-My Pinkie Is Inkie In Boxertown.  Anyone can sign up, but  stamps are only available to USA residents due to postage prices.  You can add your other blogs on this to continue to see their posts.  Bloglovin' sends an email everyday that shows you when blogs have posted.    I usually only post once or twice a week so you won't get a notification everyday about my blog-just when I post.  I am going to give everyone a chance to win  the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps below.   Everyone who signs up to follow my blog on bloglovin' and leaves me a message in my comments telling me they  signed up will be entered in the drawing.  I know some of you already follow me at Bloglovin' so you can leave your comment that you are already following me and your name will go in the drawing also.



Good luck and have a great day.

Spring Blessings

 Hello Friends, hope you had a great weekend.  We had a good one, but Saturday was super hot.  It was around 90, but the heat index was above 100.  It sure was a muggy afternoon.

I have a couple of cards to share today that are made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Spring Blessings stamp.  I hope you like them.

For my first card, I stamped my image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  The evening sky was made by applying Pan Pastels.

My second card was made the same as the first one, but I colored the sky on this one with a Copic marker.  The sentiment is from the 
Bible Verses 2 Stamp set. I like the subtle look of this one even though most of my cards are done in bright colors.  

Thank you, for stopping by today.  Have a great week and try to stay cool.

Peaceful Retreat

 Hello, Stamping Friends.  Hope this Monday morning finds you all doing well and off to a great start of the new week.  This will be a busy week at my house.  Seems like they all are these days.

I am going to share some cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Peaceful Retreat  stamp set.  This stamp makes a fairly quick card.  I wanted to go with a different look so I made my sky darker on both cards.  I basically reversed the sky colors on them and colored the mountains different colors.  It was hard getting the picture of the cards to photograph with the darker sky.  I think the darker sky looks better in real life.

 

No photo description available.

For the first card, I stamped my Peaceful Retreat image and colored it with Copic Markers   The sky was made using pan pastels.  I like using my pan pastels when making a sky.  They can look really colorful and it is a quick process.


No photo description available.

The second card was made just like the first one with the exception of the bear.  I thought he was a great addition to the Peaceful Retreat image.  The bear is from the Momma Bear and Friends stamp set.

Watch my blog, I am going to be having a stamp giveaway soon.   I will post the prize and the details soon.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful week.

Iwo Jima

Hi, Stamping Friends.  Today I am back with a couple of cards made with  the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Iwo Jima.

May be an image of standing and text

For the first card, I started by using the Magical Masking Tape Technique.  I  swiped the sticky side of the masking tape across my ink pad and then transferred the ink to my card stock to create the flag background.  I stamped the image over flag.  I really like this technique and had not used it in a while.  

May be an image of text that says '*** HERO Thank you You make America Proud Shirley Quarry Blue Knight Kulber Stamps DJ'

For my second card, I used my Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and blue ink to make my sky with the puffy clouds.  I then stamped the Iwo Jima image and the sentiment from the Thank You Hero  stamp set over the clouds to complete my card.

Thank you, for stopping in today.  I always appreciate your visits.

Sea Life

 Hello, Friends.     I hope you all had a great weekend.  I was complaining that it had been a little chilly the last couple of weeks.  We now are having warmer weather and the last couple of days have been a little humid.  I like the heat, but the humidity really gets us in the summer.   

Important - Please read.  I would like to ask you all to go to Bloglovin.comput in my blog name and and choose to follow me.  With the upcoming changes to Blogger and Feedburner also of July 1st,  there will no longer be emails sent when there is a new post on blogs.   When you do this you will get an email that will notify you when the blogs you have signed up for have new posts.  I have been trying to figure out, like many of you are, what to do.  I thought this might work. until maybe there is something better available.  

I am sharing a couple of cards with you that I made using the Sea Life stamp set by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.


I chose to use a background that I had done some time ago that I created with sprays and added Heidi Swapp Gold Spray over the top of it.  When I saw this turtle image, I thought he would look great with it.    I turtle stamped the image over the top of the background along with a sentiment that was in the Chickadee on a Fence Post set.  I liked the sentiment and then I decided to google how turtles breath.  It was interesting, you might want to read up on it.  :).  I added some rhinestones to make it look like bubbles as the finishing touch.


On my second card, I stamped the turtle, seaweed, etc. on a piece of glossy paper that I had used alcohol ink with.  It gave the look of water and Mr. Turtle appears happy swimming in it. :)  I used Copic Markers to color in the images below the turtle.  


I hope you enjoyed my cards.  Thank you, once again, for coming by for a visit.  I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Perfect Love

 Hello My Crafty Friends,   hope you all had a great weekend.  I know, it went way too far, didn't it?  That just means you had some fun or got a lot accomplished.  

I am sharing cards I made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Perfect Love.   I just love the cute little bunny on this stamp.  There are two sentiments that come in this set along with the flowers with bunny.


For the first card, I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers. I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and light blue ink to create the clouds.   I stamped the sentiment using black Marvy ink.  I made mats with purple and a deep pink card stock and then added them to the card base.


My second card was made the same as the first.  I used different colors of  markers on the flowers and I used another sentiment that was in this set. 

Thank you, all, so much, for coming by today to take a look at my cards.  I hoped you liked them.  Have a great week.
