Q-tip Stamping

Here are two cards I made yesterday for the Technique Lovers Challenge on Splitcoast Stamping.   The technique was to use q-tips to make your card.  Here is a link to the video on how to stamp with Q-tips.  I used the  Blue Knight-grazing horse stamp.  I knew the trees would be perfect to paint with Q-tips after stamping it on my card stock.    This stamp set has three stamps in it.  One is the tree, one is a cover for the tree which puts leaves on it.  The third one is a small stamp with tree leave on it.  The first card was made with the leaf cover and the second one is just the tree.  Here is a picture of the stamp set:

Now you can see the three stamps that I was trying to explain.  Note that the stamps come on this nice cling background.  The front of it has a nice colored picture of the image.  Basically, the front gives you an idea of how to color the image.

Thanks, for coming by to visit.  It is always good to see you.

Happy 4th Of July

I love making Patriotic cards.  I love the colors.  The flag background is made by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps and it is called Old Glory.  The Rear View Truck is also by Blue Knight.  The sentiments are from older stamps made by a company that is no longer open.  I colored the images using Copics.  I fussy cut the I love the USA image. 

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend.   See you here again soon.

Yappy Birthday

I made this card using a QKR Stampede Patriotic Puppy image.  The front of the card has rows of Washi tape and then it was embossed using a star ef.   I got this idea from a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. I colored the puppy using Copic markers.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Living on Coffee

Here is a card I made using "Living on Coffee" by Verve.     This was one of their newest sets. 
I was really sad to hear that Verve was going out of business.   It was a great stamp company and it will be missed. 

I used papers out of my scrap bags for this card.  I had fun coloring the bright pink flowers.  Most of you know how much I like pink.

Thanks, for coming by today.

QKR299-Roy's Saturday Bath

I made this card for the SCS F4A challenge and for the QKR Blog.   I could resist using this
Cowboy Bath image.  Old Roy has been out on the range all week and he is getting his Saturday bath.   Whew, I bet he was a smelly dude.  ~smile~

Thanks, for coming by today and taking a look at Old Roy.  Hmmm-sounds like dog food instead of a smelly cowpoke.  LOL

Mason's View

I made this card using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This stamp is titled "Mason's View".  This stamp was actually made from a picture of Mason sitting on the back of his grandma's VW watching fireworks.  This stamp definitely caught my attention because I like the Volkswagon bugs.

I have had this paper for quite sometime and was waiting for the perfect card  to use it on.  It goes perfectly with this stamp.

Blue Knight has some newly released stamps and have more awesome new stamps that will be in the store soon.  Keep checking their website.  I think you will like them.

Thanks, for taking a look today.  Have a wonderful Sunday.

Laugh Until You Leak

Here is a card I made using a Vera Lane image, I love this Wildflower gal.  I really struggle at making the backgrounds like this.  I just kept adding things, as you can tell.  ~smile~  I used a white paint pen on my leaves and on the image.  The paper absorbed it so it does not look as nice as a gel pen.   My gel pens were dry.  :(  I used dilusions stamps and spray, along with inks & acrylic paint.

Thanks for looking at my card today.  Have a safe and fun weekend.
