Blue Knight - Blue Horse Barn

I hope you all are dry and safe this morning.  There has been flooding and tornado's across the United States this weekend.  We have had over 7 inches of rain in the last couple of days and the rain is still coming down.  We are dry where our house is located, but some are dealing with water in their homes.  My prayers are with them.

Here is a card I made using Blue Knight stamps.  The image I used is Horse Barn  and Antique Car-Rear View.   I  colored the image with copics and I used a cloud template to sponge the clouds.  I stamped the car on a card stock, colored it and fussy cut it so I could adhere it to the card.

I am happy you stopped by today and I hope you come back soon.

Blue Knight Praying in the Window

Here is a card I made with the Blue Knight Window in the WallPraying for You and Bible Verse 2 stamps.  I colored the image with copics and punched some flowers for my red vine.   A perfect card for someone going through a rough time.

This is a picture of the actual Window in the Wall stamp.  It is very versatile, you can use the view that is already on the stamp or put anything you like in the window.  

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you will come back soon.

Blue Knight - Fabulous Sheep

Here is a card that I made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.    The stamp I used is called
Mama and Baby Sheep.  This was a fun stamp to work with and it came together really  quick.
 I colored with copics and then I sponged the rest of it.  The sentiment is embossed using silver embossing powder.  I added the clouds, popped the top one up.  I used three purple rhinestones as the finishing touch.

Thank you, for taking a look at my card today.

Friends Of Flourishes - So This Is Easter Eggs

Good Morning, Blogger Friends.   The Friends of Flourishes Design Team challenge for today is anything goes.  I wanted to use the "So...this is Easter" set because it is so cute and  I still need another Easter card.  I had other plans for my layout when I started, but once I colored the image, I decided that the original plan would take away from my card.  I like the CAS look.

The Flourishes blog and store has been under construction and it has taken longer than was planned to complete it.  We apologize for the inconvenience of not being to access them at this time.  They will be up and running soon.

Have a Happy Easter and thank you for stopping in today.  Below are links to the other design team members blogs.

Who Did Your Dye Job???

The CAS challenge theme  for today is "Egg Hunt".   I was happy to see that challenge because I had this un-inked  and fun stamp sitting on my desk to be used.  I really have a hard time doing CAS cards, they are a challenge to me.  (For Real)   I think I will go make a couple more before I tackle some dreaded housework.

Have a great day and I hope you come back real soon.

Flourishes Blog Hop Day Five - So This Is Easter

Today the Flourishes Blog is showing the new release called "So This Is Easter".  I really like roosters so this image is one of my favorites.  I used the Tartan Plaid background stamp,  plaid goes so well with the country rooster.

I appreciate you coming by today.  I hope you can take a look at the Friends of Flourishes design team and the Flourishes Blog to see the other cards made with this set.

Flourishes Blog Hop Day Four - He Is Risen

Today Flourishes Blog is showcasing cards made with the new "He Is Risen" stamp set.   I used the feathers from this set for my focal point.  I added hearts, a button and gold cording over the two colors of blue feathers. I stamped the sentiment, which is from the Winter Birds stamp set,  with gold embossing powder.   I added a  corner and sequins to complete my card. 

My team mates have made cards from this stamp set, too.  I hope you will visit them and see what they have made, as well as the Flourishes Blog.

Flourishes Blog Hop Day Two - Tartan Plaid

This is day two of the Flourishes Blog Hop.  The Tartan Plaid stamp is being showcased today.  I really like this one because when you do not have the color of designer paper to match your card stock, you can stamp your own paper in just the right color.  I love the lavender stamped on the blue card stock so I used the same color combo today.  I also used the tulip from the Flourishes Year of the Flower stamp set.  I wanted to keep my layout simple today so it did not take away from the beautiful plaid background.

If you would like to see more cards made with the Tartan Plaid stamp, check the list below of my team mates who are participating in the hop.  Thanks, for coming by today.

Flourishes Blog Hop Day One - Thistle

Flourishes Blog will be featuring the new Spring Releases this week.  For Day One of the hop, I made a card using the Thistle Stamp set.  I stamped the Thistle on Bashful Blue Card Stock.   The embossed panel is also blue card stock.  I inked  the embossing folder  with Violet ink before embossing.  I really liked the blue with the purple. 

I hope you will check out the blog to see the other designer's cards.
