Storm Clouds-Walk by Faith

I thought this would be a perfect card for someone going through storms in their life.  I loved all the colors in the clouds and I muddled the colors to make them look like storm clouds.  We may have storm clouds during our lives, but I choose to walk by faith as God always leads us through those storms just as Momma elephant is leading her babies through the storm.  I used Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Walk By Faith image by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I used Pan Pastels to create the stormy skies.

Climbing Cat-Another New Release

Hi, everyone.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I know it probably went by way to quickly.  It generally does.  It is hard to pack so many fun things in just two days, isn't it?

Today I am sharing a couple of cards with you that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps new release Climbing Cat.      You will like this stamp even if you are not a cat lover.  I will let you see for yourself.

I stamped my image on the card stock using the stamp platform.  I colored the image using Copic Markers.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil to sponge turquoise ink on the sky to create the puffy clouds.

My second card was a challenge the BKRS design team members were given to make a 6 X 6 card.  I have to say that when I started this card, I wasn't sure where it was going, but I was pretty happy with the results of my first 6 X 6 card.  .
I stamped my image and colored the it with Copics.  I sponged  the sky using the Day & Knight Pan Pastel Palette.  I cut the kitten out using a heart template.  You will want to cut around his tail and his paw and place it over the die so it does not cut them off.  I did not think ahead and I had to use adhesive to reattach them because I thought the image looked better with them attached.  I cut the layering heart next. I, then, cut a square piece of card stock that matched the colors in my sky around the kitten.  I added a darker layer of card stock behind it and added some designer paper behind it before adhering it to the card base.

Thanks, so much, for stopping by today.

More Walk By Faith cards

Hello,  I had so much fun with the Walk by Faith cards that I posted yesterday that I decided to come back today and show you a couple more quick and easy creations that I made with that set.

For this card I stamped my images on Mementa paper.  I mentioned the 8 X 8 pad in yesterdays post. I love this pad.

On this card I stamped on a piece of Paper Studio paper.  I like these quick and easy cards.

Walk By Faith

Hello Stampers, I am back with another new release stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This stamp set is Walk By Faith and comes with three stamps. (the elephants, the sentiment and the birds)

For this card,  I placed my stamp and card stock on my Tonic stamp platform.  I have the travel size and love it.  I stamped the image with Black Ranger Ink.  I masked my sun and started sponging my background using the Sunrise and Sunset Pan Pastels.  I started sponging Dairylide Yellow  at the top of the card stock then followed by Orange and Red Iron Oxide.  I pulled off the sun mask and lightly sponged some of the Dairylide Yellow over it.   I stamped the birds and the sentiment .  Once I was done,  I used hair spray to set the pan pastels.  There are sprays you can get that are made specifically for setting pan pastels.  So far, the hair spray works well, for me.
On this card I stamped the same way as I did the image on the first card.  I bet you are wondering how I created this background, aren't you.   It was really difficult.   ~giggling~   Here is how difficult if was.  I found a 8 X 8 Momenta paper pad at Hobby Lobby that has beautiful paper in it.  It really made my card very quick and easy.  You could really make a lot of these cards in no time at all, especially with the  image being already on the stamp platform and ready to stamp again.  

I hope you liked my cards.  Come back tomorrow,  I have two more, super quick and easy cards to share with you.

Campsite-Two More Cards

I had such a good time playing with the Campsite stamp by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps this week.  I decided to post two more that I made.  For the first card, I just had to make one with a pink tent.  I like Pink just a little bit.  I bet you already knew that, didn't you?   ~giggle~

 For my second card,  I used a non Blue Knight stamp with the Campsite stamp.  I needed a "thinking of you" card for a friend who use to take trips in their RV before she and her husband started having health problems.  I thought she would enjoy the memories this card would bring back to her.  Thanks, to my sister for the RV stamp.

Thank you for dropping my today and taking a look at my cards.  It is so appreciated.

Let's Go Camping

Hi, everyone.  Happy you stopped by today to check out my blog post.  I am showcasing a new release stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This one is called "Campsite".  A perfect image for someone that loves the outdoors and camping.

I stamped my image on my card stock using my Tonic stamp positioner.  I did restamp a couple of times to get a nice and clear print.  I used my Copic Markers to color the image.  The sky was made using my Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and a turquoise ink pad.  I added a creek on this card.  If you notice the second card, it does not have a creek.  I love how you can use the same stamp different ways.
This card was made basically the same as the first card.  I colored this image the way is  was intended and did not add the creek to it.  The sky was created using a sponge and Pan Pastels.

Always Rejoice

I made this card using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Always Rejoice stamp set.  When I stamped it I stamped lower on the card than I intended to and I thought there was too much space in between.  I colored the image with Copics and it has set on my table for a few months now.  Today there was a challenge on Splitcoast that I entered it in.  The challenge was to add sparkle to our cards.   Adding the sequins filled in the space and it qualified my card for the challenge.

Happy you stopped by today.

Palm Tree Beach

Hello, Stampers,  I am back with a couple of cards with beach scenes to share with you today...  These cards were made using the new release set Palm Tree Beach by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
This stamp set comes with two stamps,  the beach and the sentiment.  The first card was  easy to make.  I stamped the image on the card stock using black Ranger ink and my Tonic Stamp Positioner.   I colored the sand and the water with Copic markers.  I used a white gel pen to go around the edge of the water and and made some little white caps across the water. I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and turquoise ink to make the clouds.  This card is a little more subtle than I usually make, but I really liked this effect.

For the second card, I used the same stamp set.  Once again I stamped the image on the card stock using black Ranger ink.  Once you are done stamping, leave the stamps on your stamp platform because you will need to re stamp the image once you are done with the pan pastels.  I colored the sand, the water and added the white gel pen to the water.  I used Pan Pastels -Sunrise and Sunset.  I sponged red, orange and yellow across the sky making the bright sunset.  Once I finished the sponging of the Pan Pastels,  do not trim your image,  you will want to put your card back on the platform and stamp it again, maybe even twice.    After you do your restamping, you can trim your image to fit your card.
