Mare and Foal

Hello, friends.  Today I am showcasing another new release stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. This one is called  Mare and Foal.  This image is sure to steal the hearts of horse lovers.

For my first card, I stamped the image on my card stock using my Tonic Stamping Platform.
I colored the image using my trusty Copics.   I punched a circle from a post it note and put it in the top corner to create the sun.    I used Distress Inks to create my background.  Once I had the color sponged on, I removed my sun post it note and sponged some yellow and orange over the top of it to give it a little color.

Once again, I stamped my image using my stamp platform and then colored it using Copics.  I used Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet distress inks to create my background.  I used makeup applicators to transfer the ink to my card stock.  I wanted to create a look that looks like some of the designer paper that I have used on some other cards recently.  Once I had my sky the way I wanted it I stamped Happy Birthday at the top using the Best Wishes stamp set.

That is all for today.  I hope you liked the cards.  Thanks, for stopping by.

Momma Bear

This week, I have a couple of cards made with the newly released "Momma Bear"  stamps by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  There are two stamps with this set, the image and the sentiment.   I think Momma and Baby are pretty cute and easy to color.
For my first card, I stamped my image on white card stock,  I colored the image using two different colors of Copies for the bears and two colors of green for the grass.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and used blue ink to make the blue sky with puffy clouds.  I matted my image and attached to the  card base.
I stamped the image for the second card and colored it with Copics.  I used Day and Night, and Sunrise Sunset  Pan Pastels to make the sky.  I sponged the color on using sponges that came with the Pan Pastels.  I made the mats for my image and attached them to the card base.

Better Things Ahead

Here I am, once again, with another  post showcasing cards that I made with Blue Knight's latest release.  This stamp set is called "Better Things Ahead".  It comes with the image and the sentiment.  (two stamps).  The two cards I made for today will show you that you can make cards very fast and easy.   It does not get any easier than this.  Both of my cards were made with designer paper.  If you are not into making your backgrounds,  this is sure to be your technique of choice.   I stamped my images directly on top of the dp, matted the images, attached them to the card base and the cards were done.  The longest part of making these cards was choosing the designer paper.  I used a Paper Studio Stargazer 4.5 X 6.5 paper pad.  You can find it at Hobby Lobby.

That is all I have for today.  So what do you think, do you like them?

Regal Stag-Corner Bookmark

Hello, Everyone.   I am back today with two new cards using another new release,  Regal Buck, by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  The design team was challenged to put a bookmark on one of our cards this week.   It was a little challenging since I was assigned the Regal Buck for today's post.  I kept thinking about how I was going to use the Buck on a bookmark since he is a little large for a regular bookmark.   I kept staring at this stamp and yes, I did have a deer in the headlight look because I just could not come up with an idea.   Finally, the lightbulb went off and I had a viable idea.   ~Yay~   I decided to make a corner bookmark which fits over the corner of the page you are marking.  I had made one of those long ago.  I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  You can find that tutorial Here.  I had to make my bookmark larger than the one they gave measurements for on Splitcoast to accommodate my Regal Buck image.   Here is my card with the bookmark, what do you think of it?

The triangular piece, with the stripes goes over the book page.  It really looks pretty cool when you place it on the page.  I wish I had taken a picture of it, but I did not think to do it until it was already attached to the card.  

I used a Paper Studio Paper Pack that I have had in my stash for a while.  I thought the colors were perfect for the Buck.  I used Copics to color my image and sponged with blue ink using a cloud template to create my puffy clouds.  You probably have guessed that I like making clouds.     I used dimensionals to add my bookmark to the card.  I used a corner die, that I purchased when I first started stamping, for the navy ornate corners.  I added three brown sequins to complete my card for the finishing touch.

For my second card, I used the same paper pad, colored the image with Copics making this Stag a darker color than the first one and made more puffy blue clouds.  I matted my paper for my design and added three buttons on my card.  Viola, my card is finished.
