Warm Hedgehogs

 Hi Everyone,  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Now it is Monday and back to the weekly grind. It will be a busy week for me.

Today I am sharing cards that I made using Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Warm Hedgehogs stamps.  This stamp set comes with the hedgehog image and sentiment that I have used on my cards.


For the first  card, I stamped my image and sentiment on card stock and colored the image using Copic Markers .  I used a Die to cut the panel and used red card stock to layer it.


My second card was made the same as the first card and I used different colors on my image. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards today.  Have a great week.

Fun in the Tree Swing

 Hello Friends,  I am back with a couple more cards from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  I love the peaceful feel of the is Tree Swing Stamp set.   How many of you had a tree swing when you were a child?  I remember having a tire swing.  Hmmmm, that might date me just a bit.  LOL. The stamps I am showcasing today are new and the name of the stamps is Tree Swing.



My first card was stamped using black ink and colored with Copic Markers.  I used Catherine Pooler inks for the background.  I punched a small circle to create the sun.  Can you tell I really like a lot of bright colors?  Ha-ha.


The second card was made the same as the first one.  I just used different colors of markers.  I used a cloud template and turquoise ink to make the puffy clouds.

Thanks, so much, for stopping in today.

Clever Fox

 Hello,  Friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  It is amazing how fast it went by.  

I have a couple of cards to share today using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Clever Fox.  This set comes with the Fox image and three sentiments.  (Thinking of You Makes me Smile, Hello There and Stay Clever)

For my first card I stamped the fox  and the sentiment on white card stock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I then made a mask for the image and used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil with Turquoise ink to make the clouds.

My second card was made by stamping the image and the sentiment on white card stock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I adhered the the image to green striped designer paper and then added it to the card base.

Train Tracks

 Hello Friends, hope you are all having a great weekend.  This is a long weekend for us since we are celebrating the 4th of July.  We have had a busy weekend.  This evening we have a cookout planned and then tomorrow things are back to normal schedule, if I have a normal schedule.  ~grin~

First I want to announce the winner of the stamp giveaway.    Donna,  you are the winner.  Please let me know your mailing information and I will get them in the mail to you.  Thanks, to all of you entered and became a follower of mine on BLOGLOVIN'.  I still hope you will become a follower, if you haven't already done so.  Once Feedburner stops sending my blog posts directly to you by email, you will be able to keep up with my blog through bloglovin' by becoming a follower.

Here is a note that I got regarding the changes by Feedburner.    

FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner) is going away 
You are receiving this information because your blog uses the FollowByEmail widget (Feedburner). 
Recently, the Feedburner team released a system update announcement , that the email subscription service will be discontinued in July 2021.

I have a couple of cards to share with you made with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps  new release Train Tracks.  I am liking all the stamps from the new release, but this set is my favorite.  


For my first card, I stamped the image on white card stock using black Marvy Euchida ink.     I like to use it this ink because it works so well with Copic coloring.  Next I colored my image using Copics.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud stencil and turquoise ink to make the clouds.           

My second card was made the same as the first card other than I used different colors of Copics and I added yellow in the clouds  on this one.  

I hope you liked the card for today.  I appreciate you coming by to take a peek at them.  Have a wonderful week.

 Hello, Everyone.  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.   I had a good one.  It was a little warm, but all in all, not too bad.

This card was made using the Chickadee on a Fencepost and the Silhouette Sportsman stamps.


My first card was made using the Building Beavers stamp set.  I used this set on some Father's Day cards and the beavers were perfect or the occasion.

I used the Daisies and Roses Stamp set on this card.  


This patriotic card was made using the Iwo Jima stamp set.  I really like the flag background that I made using masking tape.

Background Trees

Hello, hope you all had a great weekend.  We celebrated Father's Day yesterday.   It was good to see both of our children.  We had a great visit.

Today I am showcasing cards made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Background Trees.  I am visualizing lots of uses for this stamp.

My first card was made by stamping the image on white card stock and then I used my Heidi Pettie Cloud stencil and DOX ink to create the clouds.   I added the Silhouette Sportsman stamp and viola my card is done.   An easy peasy card.  I like the pink sky.  It reminds me of how the sky looks sometimes in the early morning hours.  


My second card was even easier than the first card.  I used designer paper and stamped my image over it.  I then stamped the 
Silhouette Moose between the trees as a finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed the cards.  Don't forget to look at yesterdays post about the stamp sets.

Have a wonderful week and try to stay cool in the terrible heat that we have been having.

Spring Blessings

 Hello Friends, hope you had a great weekend.  We had a good one, but Saturday was super hot.  It was around 90, but the heat index was above 100.  It sure was a muggy afternoon.

I have a couple of cards to share today that are made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Spring Blessings stamp.  I hope you like them.

For my first card, I stamped my image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  The evening sky was made by applying Pan Pastels.

My second card was made the same as the first one, but I colored the sky on this one with a Copic marker.  The sentiment is from the 
Bible Verses 2 Stamp set. I like the subtle look of this one even though most of my cards are done in bright colors.  

Thank you, for stopping by today.  Have a great week and try to stay cool.

Peaceful Retreat

 Hello, Stamping Friends.  Hope this Monday morning finds you all doing well and off to a great start of the new week.  This will be a busy week at my house.  Seems like they all are these days.

I am going to share some cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Peaceful Retreat  stamp set.  This stamp makes a fairly quick card.  I wanted to go with a different look so I made my sky darker on both cards.  I basically reversed the sky colors on them and colored the mountains different colors.  It was hard getting the picture of the cards to photograph with the darker sky.  I think the darker sky looks better in real life.

 

No photo description available.

For the first card, I stamped my Peaceful Retreat image and colored it with Copic Markers   The sky was made using pan pastels.  I like using my pan pastels when making a sky.  They can look really colorful and it is a quick process.


No photo description available.

The second card was made just like the first one with the exception of the bear.  I thought he was a great addition to the Peaceful Retreat image.  The bear is from the Momma Bear and Friends stamp set.

Watch my blog, I am going to be having a stamp giveaway soon.   I will post the prize and the details soon.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful week.

Iwo Jima

Hi, Stamping Friends.  Today I am back with a couple of cards made with  the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Iwo Jima.

May be an image of standing and text

For the first card, I started by using the Magical Masking Tape Technique.  I  swiped the sticky side of the masking tape across my ink pad and then transferred the ink to my card stock to create the flag background.  I stamped the image over flag.  I really like this technique and had not used it in a while.  

May be an image of text that says '*** HERO Thank you You make America Proud Shirley Quarry Blue Knight Kulber Stamps DJ'

For my second card, I used my Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and blue ink to make my sky with the puffy clouds.  I then stamped the Iwo Jima image and the sentiment from the Thank You Hero  stamp set over the clouds to complete my card.

Thank you, for stopping in today.  I always appreciate your visits.

Sea Life

 Hello, Friends.     I hope you all had a great weekend.  I was complaining that it had been a little chilly the last couple of weeks.  We now are having warmer weather and the last couple of days have been a little humid.  I like the heat, but the humidity really gets us in the summer.   

Important - Please read.  I would like to ask you all to go to Bloglovin.comput in my blog name and and choose to follow me.  With the upcoming changes to Blogger and Feedburner also of July 1st,  there will no longer be emails sent when there is a new post on blogs.   When you do this you will get an email that will notify you when the blogs you have signed up for have new posts.  I have been trying to figure out, like many of you are, what to do.  I thought this might work. until maybe there is something better available.  

I am sharing a couple of cards with you that I made using the Sea Life stamp set by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.


I chose to use a background that I had done some time ago that I created with sprays and added Heidi Swapp Gold Spray over the top of it.  When I saw this turtle image, I thought he would look great with it.    I turtle stamped the image over the top of the background along with a sentiment that was in the Chickadee on a Fence Post set.  I liked the sentiment and then I decided to google how turtles breath.  It was interesting, you might want to read up on it.  :).  I added some rhinestones to make it look like bubbles as the finishing touch.


On my second card, I stamped the turtle, seaweed, etc. on a piece of glossy paper that I had used alcohol ink with.  It gave the look of water and Mr. Turtle appears happy swimming in it. :)  I used Copic Markers to color in the images below the turtle.  


I hope you enjoyed my cards.  Thank you, once again, for coming by for a visit.  I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Perfect Love

 Hello My Crafty Friends,   hope you all had a great weekend.  I know, it went way too far, didn't it?  That just means you had some fun or got a lot accomplished.  

I am sharing cards I made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Perfect Love.   I just love the cute little bunny on this stamp.  There are two sentiments that come in this set along with the flowers with bunny.


For the first card, I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers. I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and light blue ink to create the clouds.   I stamped the sentiment using black Marvy ink.  I made mats with purple and a deep pink card stock and then added them to the card base.


My second card was made the same as the first.  I used different colors of  markers on the flowers and I used another sentiment that was in this set. 

Thank you, all, so much, for coming by today to take a look at my cards.  I hoped you liked them.  Have a great week.

Saluting Soldiers

 Hi Everyone, hope all of you mother's had a wonderful day yesterday.  I had a great one.  The day went by way too fast.


Today I am sharing cards I made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Saluting Soldiers.


The first card I used the  Saluting Soldiers Stamps with the Old Glory stamp.  I stamped Old Glory on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used Stazon Black Ink to stamp the Saluting soldier over the top of it.  I stamped the Thank You sentiment, which is from the God Bless America sentiment stamp set, on white card stock and then cut it to fit across the flag.  I then cut mats for my card and adhered them to the card base.


The second card was made by stamping  the soldier and the planes on camouflage designer paper using black StazOn Ink.  This was pretty quickly done.  I then did the matting and adhered them to the card base to complete my card.

Once again, I thank each one of you for stopping by, you are very appreciated.  Have a great week.

Joyful Bunny

Hello Friends.  I have a couple of cards to share with you of a cute Joyful Bunny.  This is another new release for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  



This image was very easy to work with.  It does not take long to make a card with this sweet image.  I stamped the image and sentiment on white card stock using my stamping platform.  I colored the flowers and the bunny's bow with Copic Markers.  I matted the panel with the image to yellow and orange mats.  I made this card a mini slim line card



For my second card, everything was done pretty much the same as the first card with different colors and this one was not a mini slim line card.  I colored an extra bow for this bunny.  I thought the bunny looked pretty cute with a bow on each ear.


Thank you, so much for coming by today.  I hope you have a wonderful week.

Love, Joy and Peace

 Hello, Everyone.  Hope this finds you all well and rested from the weekend.  Sometimes weekends are not restful as one tries to get everything caught up that they were not able to do doing the week.  We spent Saturday cleaning the garage.  Today,  after church, we spent some time with family and a dear friend.

I am sharing a couple of cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-Love, Joy and Peace.     This set is from the new release last month.

For the first card, I stamped  the image on a card front that came from a boxed set from Hobby Lobby.  I cut it down to the size I actually I wanted  and matted it on black card stock.  I colored the leaves and the penguins with Copic Markers.   The rose was creating by stamping the rose on designer paper, I fussy cut it paper pieced on the image.  I made the remaining mats with dotted designer paper and white card stock.  One piece of the card stock was embossed with a dotted embossing folder.  Looks like I was into dots since the rose ended up dotted, too.  ~smile~

For the second card, I decided to make a mini long card.  I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with my Copic Markers.  I used a cloud template and turquoise ink to create the clouds.    I cut the blue and black mats and adhered them to the white card base.   I thought the animals on this one was  adorable.  

Thank you, for stopping by and have a great week

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-Fireman

Hello, Friends.  Happy Monday, to you.  I hope this day is the start of a wonderful week for you.  The last few days have been a little cool so I am hoping for some warmer temps, but I am not sure that is going to happen just yet.

I am sharing a couple cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps-Fireman, a new release set.  There are four silhouette stamps that comes in this package.  It is perfect for a firemen friend.



For my first card, I chose a pre-made card front where this beautiful background was already made for me.  There was a white space on the bottom of it and I sponged brown ink in that spot to make the ground for my fireman and fire truck.  The rest was easy peasy. I inked up my stamps with black archival ink and stamped them on the card front.  I added the matting and this card was done in no time, at all.  


My second card was made using some designer paper that I have always liked and it is perfect for a masculine card.  I used black archival ink to stamp my fireman on the grid paper.  I stamped the fire department emblem on the back side of the same paper so it matched the rest of the designer paper. I added a piece of black ribbon and then  I fussy cut it and used foam dots to adhere it to the front of the fireman. I put my card together with the mats that I had cut, added the stars for the finishing touch to this card.

I certainly appreciate you all coming by and viewing my cards.  I will see you again soon.  Have a great week.

Blue Knight Island Tree

 Hello, Friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  It was just little chilly here and a whole lot windy.  We met friends at the park and spent a couple of enjoyable hours out doors.  My jacket sure felt good.  

Today I am sharing two cards I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps  newly released Island Tree.


For the first card, I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used the Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and turquoise ink to create the cloudy sky.  I cut mats and adhered both the mats along with the image to the card base.

May be an image of tree

No photo description available.

The second card was made the same as the first.  The only difference was,  I colored them with different colors and used bashful blue ink on the sky.


I am happy you stopped in today to see my card.  Your visits and comments are always appreciated.  Thanks, so much.

 Hello, Friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend and that you are doing well.

Today I am sharing cards that I made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Building Beavers stamp set.  This set comes with the beavers image and two sentiments.  This stamp set works well as a Birthday, Father's Day, Anniversary card, I also used it for a Valentine's Day card, it was in a earlier post around Valentine's Day.

The first card was made by stamping the beaver image on white card stock.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  The sky was made using turquoise ink and a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil.  


The second card was made by stamping the image and sentiment on designer paper.  I used the sentiment from the Blue Knight 
Mini Greeting 2 stamp set.

Make a Wish

Hello, Friends.  I am amazed on how fast Monday rolls around each week.  I must be having lots of fun.  The saying is, "Time flies when you are having fun".   I am happy that our time switched to daylight savings time.  I like the extra hour of daylight and especially now that the temps are getting warmer.  Maybe I will get in a walk in the evening or visit with the neighbors a little.  Haven't seen much of them over the winter.

I am going to share a couple of cards that I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Make a Wish set.  

My first card is a Pop Up that folds flat for mailing.  I was going to give you the dimensions of the card, but I am in the process of re-organizing my craft room and I cannot find the paper I wrote the measurements on, not to mention I boxed up some adhesives and I have no idea where that box got to.  I probably will not know where anything is for quite a while.    I stamped this cute image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I used my Heidi Pettie cloud stencil and distress inks to make the clouds.  The colors of the clouds remind me of the sky sometimes after a rain storm and it has green color.    I used some older dotted paper from Stampin' Up and I think the flower paper is was Daisy D and I do not know that Daisy's is still in business.  I had saved this paper forever and I thought it went well with this sweet image.




The second card was designed using a Dienamics Blue Print 18 die set.   The paper was some 12 in sheets that I cut into quarters.  I am not sure of the brand of paper it was.  I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Makers.  The clouds were made with the cloud stencil, mentioned above, and SU tempting turquoise ink.    The sentiment is part of the Make A Wish stamp set and I stamped it using black ink on a banner die.  I punched a small star and placed it on the banner to give it some added interest.

Thank you, so much, for stopping in today.  It is always fun to see you have visited and to read your sweet comments.   Have a wonderful week.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Daisies and Roses

Hello, Friends.   I hope you are all doing well and ready to start a brand new week.  I am starting my week sharing two cards I made using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Daisies and Roses.  I started by stamping the image on white card stock and coloring it with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the image and laid it aside.   I cut part of my card base away and added acetate between the two front pieces.  I added some dotted designer paper to the front of the card base.  I adhered the flowers to the card.  I used my stamp platform to to stamp the sentiment on the inside of my card so it would show through the acetate.   The Blue Knight sentiment I used is from the Bible Verse 2 Stamp set.





On my second card I stamped the image on ard stock, colored it with Copic Markers and fussy cut it.  Once again I laid it said while I prepared my card base.  I adhered turquoise card stock over the white card base, I used Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies for the next two layers.  I adhered the flower image to the top die cut to complete my card.  




As you can see by the last paragraph, blogger is still not my friend.  Blogger has a mind of it's own and will not let me correct the alignment.  

Thank you, for stopping in today.  Your visits and comments are very appreciated.  Have a wonderful week.
