Heaven's Gate

 Hello, Stamping Friends.  It is hard to believe it is already December.   Do you all have your Christmas cards made?  If you do, you are certainly ahead of me. 

Today I am sharing cards made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Heaven's Gate stamp.  

For my first card I chose to use designer paper to stamp my Heaven's Gate on.  I stamped using Versa Mark ink and used black embossing powder over the top of it.   I stamped the sentiment using Versa Fine Black Ink.   The puppy is from the Blue Knight Stamp set called           A Girl with Pets.  I stamped it using Versa Fine Black ink, as well.  I am always needed pet sympathy cards so I thought using the puppy with the Heaven's Gate was a perfect match.  I attached the my card stock to my card base and mats.

On my second one,  another pet sympathy card, I stamped the Heaven's Gate and the puppy using Versa Fine Black Ink  on designer paper.   I colored the flowers and bricks using Copic Markers.  I liked the look of using the markers to color over the designer paper and it gave a really different look from the first card.  I adhered my image on the mats and card base.  

Thanks, so much, for stopping by to see me today.  Have a wonderful week.
