Flying a Kite - another new release from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps

Hello, Crafty Friends.  Wow, it is Monday, once again, and I have two cards to share with you from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  This on is called Flying a Kite.  This set comes with the silhouette image and a sentiment which I have used on the first card.  I loved working with  this stamp.  You can make a fabulous scene with added stamp sets or you can stamp it on designer for a quick, but beautiful card.

This was a really easy card to make.  I stamped the silhouette image on this pretty designer paper and it looks like I spent some time water coloring it.  I like when I have paper that makes me look good.  ~grin~.   The paper was from a paper pack I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

For my second card, I decided to make a beach scene.  Oh, what fun it would be to be flying a kite on the beach for a young couple creating wonderful memories.   I used the Forever After Sentiment Stamps.   I stamped my beach image on the card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I added a white gel pen to my water to give it the effect of waves.  I used a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil to make my clouds along with turquoise ink.  I used a stamp positioner to stamp the silhouette image and sentiment over the top of the beach.  Any easy way to do this is to put a piece of clear card stock over your card, you stamp on it and you can see clearly where your image is going to be and you can make sure your sentiment is straight before you stamp on the card.  I use the clear acrylic packaging from Spellbinders Dies to stamp on.   After I am done with it,  I clean it off  and it is ready to use again or you can pitch it and use another piece for the next time.  I store my dies in thick plastic envelopes so I keep  several of the packages to cut up for my card project protectors.

I am happy you joined me today.    I hope you enjoyed the cards.

Have a fabulous week.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-Let's Go

 Hi,  Monday rolled around really quick.  The weekend just seemed to fly by.  I had a great weekend and I hope you did the same.  

I am going to share two cards I made using the  Blue Knight Rubber Stamps "Let's Go".    This silhouette stamp set comes with four stamps.  There are two of the boy & girl that are larger stamps and another two that are the same, but are made into smaller stamps to give you options of how you want to use them. 

I started out using an image called Path to the Barn.  I had this image laying on my craft table and it was already stamped and colored with Copic Markers.  I decided that the little boy from the Let's Go set would work perfectly if I stamped it in front of the path.  I used Ranger Archival ink to stamp my silhouette image.

This card was super easy to make.  I know the background looks like I spent a lot of time on it, but really and truly, I did not.  The pink background is from a 8X8 paper pad that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I could not have made a background that looked this good.  I used pierced chain dies to cut my mats.  I used Ranger Archival Ink to stamp my silhouette on to the paper.  

I hope you all enjoyed my cards today.  Let me know what you think of them.    Have a great week.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Daddy's Home

Hi, everyone.  Today I am going to share another new release from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.   It is definitely a cute one.  It is called, "Daddy's Home".  It reminds me so much of my oldest two grand sons when they were little.  My daughter had her hands full with those two and what one did not think of the other one did.  ~smile~

I stamped this image on card stock.  I colored it using Copic Markers.  The sky was made using Distress Inks and a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil.

This card was made the same way as the first,  I just colored them differently.

Thanks, so much, for coming by today.  I love hearing your comments and opinions.  Have a wonderful week.
