Blue Knight ~ Truck with Free Trees

Oh, how I love old trucks and old cars.   I suppose it is because it is nice to think of how much different things were during those times.  Things were a lot more laid back,  families gathered at Grandma's every week without sitting in the parlor with a cell phone in hand.  Just so you know,  I do not remember this particular truck because I think it is older than me.  ~Smile~

I colored the Blue Knight image with copics.   I added some white flower soft to make snow on the truck and the tree.  The dies I used are  SB Divine Eloquence and labels 38.   I used a Impression Obsession Pine Branch and Santa's Sleigh.   The free tree sign is computer generated and the Merry Christmas sentiment is from MFP.    I haven't used bling in a while so I was having blind withdrawals.  I might have over done it with the silver stars and gold sequins.

Thanks, for visiting me in Boxertown today.  I hope you  come back soon.

Imagine Blog Hop with Flourishes

Cyber Monday Blog Hop


Thank you for joining Flourishes LC and Imagine Crafts on this fabulous Cyber Monday for our first blog hop together, we are excited to share with you our designer’s creativity using each company’s products and each designer unique style. Make sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog as we will be giving prizes away randomly from two of the designer’s blogs.

Here is the card I made for the hop today using Flourishes

I started my card with a white card base and layered it with pink.  I used a Joy corner die to cut four corners to place over the pink layer.  The next step was to take a white square of card stock and I  placed a chicken wire stencil over it,  I used a Versamark Pad to rub over the stencil.   Once the card stock was saturated with the Versamark,  I sprinkled silver embossing powder over it.  

 I stamped my image and colored it with copics.  I used a circle die to cut it out.   I used my Lacey Tier dies to cut the other pieces of the card.  I then adhered my Camillia on the front of the card.  I added pearls and rhinestones as the finishing touches to my card.

Below is the blog list and be sure and leave comments,  that will give you a chance to
win some great prizes.

Blue Knight - Snowy Barn Scene

I made this card today for the Splitcoast Stampers Featured Stamper challenge.  I love old barns and I used this Blue Knight image Winter Barn.   I colored the barn and horses with copic markers.  I used a cloud template to sponge the clouds and snow around the barn. 

I hope you all are having a great Sunday.  

Thank you, for coming by and come back tomorrow for another posting.

Blue Knight ~ Blue Bird Babies

I  am very excited to share a bit of news with you.   I was recently asked to design for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps, a new stamp company.   This is my first  card designed for them.    I loved this image the moment I saw it.  I felt just a bit intimidated when I started coloring, but I must say the artist did such a great job drawing it and it was easy to color with my copics.    I had a cute layout planned for it, but once I finished coloring,  I knew I was going to use a simpler layout because I felt the image was too pretty to cover up.  I liked just adding the one decorative  Joy corner and adding some bling.

I hope you all are having a great weekend.  If you are out shopping the sales,  I hope you find just what you are looking for.     Thanks for coming by today.

QKR Stampede- Angel Under The Weather

The challenge for the QKR Stampede Blog  is to put an angel on our cards.  I used the QKR  image Sick Angel #19005.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The inside sentiment  
Angels Get Down #20003 says "Even an Angel Like Your Can Get Down".

I used copics to color my angel.  I used a gold stickles on the angel's halo.  Her wings also has stickles on it.  I added some glitter before the stickles dried.  I added some sequins to give my card a little bling.

Thank you, for coming by today.  I hope you will play the challenge.  We would love to see your cards.

Art Neko - Cowboy Up

Today I am sharing a card I made for Art Neko using their Cowboy Up A271FSHT stamps.
This image reminds me so much of one of my grandson's.  He loved red cowboy boots, they were his favorite.  Actually he wasn't much bigger than the little boy on the card when he started entering rodeo's.

I colored my image with copic markers.   I added a double horse shoe sticker in the corner, but it does not show up vey clear.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  It is always good to see you here.

QKR Stampede ~Thank You Bunny

The challenge for the QKR Stampede blog theme for this week is to make a thankful card.
I started my card by printing the QKR Thank You #85005 image.   I printed my
Patchwork Bunny #6603 and fussy cut it.  I placed it by the thank you so it looked it was one image.  I thought the images paired up really good since they both had matching buttons and patches.

I hope you will go over to the blog to take a look at my teamie's cards.  They have made some really cute ones to share with you.  Be sure and make a thankful card to enter in our challenge.  You will have a chance to win some cute digital stamps.

I am happy you came by today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Art Neko - Wine Cask

I wanted to share a card that I made for the Art Neko Rubber Stamp Blog using the Art Neko Rubber Stamp Wine Cask A3840003.

I took a napkin with grapes on it and put glue on the back of it. I  attached it to my vanilla card base. I colored my wine cask and the grapes with copics. I colored the grapes to match the ones on the napkin. I fussy cut the image and set it aside. I had a scrap piece of burlap on my craft table so I adhered it to the card base. I took a piece of heart lace and adhered it to the burlap, then added the pearls. I placed the image over the burlap, attaching it with adhesive. I stamped the sentiment  Vintage Wine A3840002 on a piece of card stock and cut it out to place it over the wine cask. In the upper corner of my card I added a sticker with wine bottles on it which was the finishing touch to my card.

I hope you enjoyed the card I prepared for today.   I appreciate you coming by today.

Colors of Fall and Burlap

I am excited to be posting the first card that I created for the Art Neko Blog.  I used the Fall Images A329.

I started out by stamping the acorns with Versa Mark and embossed them with gold embossing powder.  I stamped my leaves onto Glossy card stock,  then took some distress ink and drug them over the leaves.  I fussy cut the acorns and leaves,  I then assembled my card.  I arranged the acorns over the burlap ribbon.  Once I decided where I wanted to place the acorns, I added some gold cording behind them.  The final step was adhering the leaves to the embossed panel.

I appreciate you stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card.

QKR Stampede - A Touch Of Gold

The challenge this week for the QKR Stampede challenge is to add a touch of gold.  I used the QKR Stampede stamp The Perfect Tree #12708.   I love this cute little tree that everyone wants to call the "Charlie Bown" tree.     I added yellow stickles to the star.

Be sure and come over to the blog and take a look at my team mates cards.

What List Are You On?

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge and the Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I love this image, it is always so fun to use.  I purchased this stamp in St Louis one year when my friend Sue and I were shopping at the Scrapbook store.  Every time I see the stamp, I think of her because I sent her a card with this image and I wrote her name on the bad list even though I am the one who is always bad.

The paper pad I used is by Paper Studio.  I really like making my Christmas cards with red and black papers.  This plaid really caught my eye and I had to use it.

I think that I (me)  am on the good list, but I bet you think it's you.  ~grin~

Thanks, for looking at my card and have a great day.
