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

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.

No photo description available.

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

Building Beavers

 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.  

Thank you, for stopping by today.  It is always nice to have you visit.  Have a great week.

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.

Sportsman and Bank Barn

 Hi, everyone.  Here we are off to a brand new month.  We are just a little closer to Daylight Savings Time and Spring.  I think all of us here in the USA are ready for longer daylight hours and warmer weather.  It is in the 60's here today, but the temperatures seem to jump back and forth.  I like the warmer days when we get them, but it is just a tad early for 60-65 degree weather. I am hoping that March does not have strong storms in store for us.

Today I am sharing stamps made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Silhouette Sportsman stamps.  I really like this set.  It will go will with many of my stamps and so perfect for masculine cards.

I combined the BKRS Bank Barn stamp with the Silhouette Sportsman on my first card. I colored my image using Copic Markers and the clouds were made using a Heidi Pettie cloud stencil.    I used my stamp positioner to stamp the silhouette on my card using black ink.  

My second card was made using the BKRS Dirt Road stamp with the Silhouette Sportsman stamp.  I used Copic's, the cloud stencil and turquoise ink.   For the sentiment, I used the Chickadee on a Fence Post set.


Thanks, so much, for coming by to see my cards today.   I certainly appreciate you stopping by.  Have a great week.

Bridge Over Waterfalls

Hello Friends, hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are all rested up for a new week.  Thankfully, the new week is warmer than it was last week.  Yesterday, it got up to 50 degrees and started raining so the snow is melting.  Seriously, I will not miss the snow.  :)


No photo description available.

For the first card, I stamped my Bridge Over Waterfalls  image on white card stock.  I colored the image using my Copic Markers. I used turquoise ink and a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil to make the puffy clouds.  I cut the mats and adhered them to my card base.



May be an image of text that says 'Happy Birthday Quarry'

My second card was made basically the same way as card #1 with the exception that I created the sky using Pan Pastels Sunrise and Sunset Pallette.  The sentiment was stamped using the Sentiment Mini Greetings #2 and I also added a sentiment using the Mini Greetings 2.

Thank you, for coming by to visit my blog today.  All visits and comments are much appreciated.

Seaside Treasure Hunt

Hello, Friends.  Hope this finds you all well and staying warm.  It has been really cold in my neck of the woods with ice on the ground all week and it is has not been warm enough to thaw any.  Suppose to be getting a good amount of snow for the next couple of days. According to the weather, it will be 40 degrees on Saturday so we will look forward to the heat wave.  :)

Today I will be sharing a couple of cards made with the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Seaside Treasure Hunt.


For my first card, I stamped my image on white card stock.    I colored the water with a Copic Marker. The sky was created using the 
Pan Pastel Sunrise and Sunset Pallette.
I used the Wispy Sky technique by Lynn Anderson.
I love this technique.


For this card, I stamped the image and then created the water and the sky using Pan Pastels-Sunrise and Sunset and Day and Night Palettes.

As you can see, blogger hates me.  I am unable to get it to cooperate.  It doesn't matter how many times I try to get the description of the first card to do a left alignment, it does not change.  My print is all suppose to be the same, but it is not.  At least it is not doing the crazy double spacing that it sometimes does.  I keep hoping this will get better, but I am starting to doubt it.  

I appreciate you coming by today to check out my cards.  Have a great week.

Double Trouble -Twins

Hello, Everyone.  I hope you all had a great weekend and are staying well.  It was a cold weekend at my house.  We got an inch of snow last night.  I look forward to  Spring and a lot of nice sunshine to go with it.  I miss being able to sit outside in the gazebo.  It is my way of relaxing.  I am thankful that we are having more daylight hours.  I dislike darkness at 5 P.M..  


Today I am sharing cards using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called "Twins".    I have a new neighbor next door that has twin girls so this set made me think of them.  I just had to color them pink in honor of those sweet little gals and for the fact, that I do like pink.  I cut the mats, stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I adhered the layers and then attached them to the card base.  I enjoyed working with the designer paper which is something I like doing when I can work it in.  I do have enough dp to last me two to three life times. 


 For the second card, I did the same thing I did with the first card, but I colored it in blues.  I didn't want to slight the baby boys today.  I did use a dotted embossing folder on one of the mats and I decided to turn it a little.  I added hearts and the sentiment to complete this card.

I certainly appreciate you coming by today to check out my work.  I hope you will come back again, soon.  It is always a pleasure to see you.

Chickadee on a Fence Post

 Hello, Friends.  I have a couple of cards to share with you today using a new stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Chickadee on a Fence Post.


For the first card, I cut my mats and stamped my image on white card stock.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and the sky was made using Sunrise & Sunset Pan Pastels.  I adhered my mats to the card base to complete my card.


The second card was made the same as the first, but I chose different colors for the flowers and the sky was made using a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and turquoise ink.

I made a card over the weekend with this set to send out as a sympathy card.  I stamped the fence post on the outside side of the envelope and it looked really pretty.  I wish I had thought to take a picture of it to show you.


Thanks, to all of you who made comments and suggestions to help me with my blog issues.  So far, I do not have a fix, but I can make do with the way it is.  It is so crazy because it sure messes up a lot.  For this blog post, I started out typing my blog and when I went to add the picture of the card, I centered it.  Then when I put in left alignment for the text, it kept centering it when I had chose left alignment.  I had to erase the new text and the picture of the card.  I went back to original text that I had put in and typed my second paragraph and went back and added the card picture in between the paragraphs.  It is unreal that this change in the interface could present so many problems.  

I appreciate you all coming by today and thank you for all the nice comments you leave. Have a wonderful week.

Jungle Friends

 Hi, everyone.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  It wasn't a good weekend weather wise in my little corner of the world.  It was really cold on Saturday and Sunday was rainy and dreary.  I realize it could have been worse, but it would have been nice to see the sun.


Today, I am sharing another new release called Jungle Friends by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.




This was a fairly easy card to make.  I colored the Jungle Friends with Copic Markers.  I used the Heidi Pettie cloud template and turquoise ink for the clouds.  I chose a colorful designer paper and made the mats to adhere to the card base.




For my second card,  I colored the image using Copic Markers   I chose a cute designer paper to make a baby card.  I thought this stamp set was perfect for a baby card, a child's birthday or a bright and cheerful card for a friend.  




Help.  I am still having some problems with this blog.  I don't know if it is me or blogger.  Anytime I want to add a picture, I have to drag it from my files.    I cannot get it to bring up a menu to choose an option to upload from the computer files.  Here is a picture of what it looks like when I click on upload.  As you can see on this picture, there is NO options that come up after I clicked Choose Files.




I, thank you, in advance, for any help you can offer me.  

I am happy to came by for a visit today.  Hope you come back soon.  Have a great week.

Baby Bassinet


Hi Everyone, I am back with a couple of cards from the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps new release-Baby Bassinet.  I have to say, I had fun with this set.  Paper Piecing is one of my favorite techniques so I paper pieced both cards.  I also love patterned paper and I so happen to have enough of it for 2-3 life times.  For those of you who do not like to color, this would be a perfect solution for you with this set.  I love to color, but the paper piecing won when it came to making these cards.  ~smile~

 





I cut the mats and card base for my cards.  I stamped the image on the white card stock and on the patterned paper.    I colored the the wood frame, the bear and the ball with Copic Markers.  I cut the bassinet from the patterned paper and adhered it to the one that I had colored.  

 

Here is the stamp set and the sentiments that come with it.


     Thank you, for coming by today.  Have a good week.

 I am back to share a couple of cards I made using a brand new release by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called Sunflower Sunshine.  I don't know about you, but I love seeing Sunflowers in the summer especially if there is a whole field of them.  



I stamped my image and sentiment on white card stock.  I colored the the flowers using my Copic Markers.  The sky was sponged using Turquoise ink and a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil.  I made the mats and attached to the card base.


The second card was created just like the first one with the exception that I used different colors on the sunflowers which gives it a more bold effect and used different colors for the matting.  This is my favorite of the two.

Thank you, so much, for dropping in today.  I always enjoy your visit and hearing your comments.  Have a good week.

Thanks, to Daffodil Cards for the tip on the blogger issue I was having.  It did not help the last post, but I used the info for this post and it has done very well.  I appreciate the help.

Swan Scene

 Hello and Happy New Year.  Here is my first blog post for the this year.  I am showcasing a brand new stamp set Swan Scene from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  Be sure and check out ALL the new releases HERE.


For my first card, I stamped the silhouette Swan Scene image on white card stock using Black VersaFine Clair ink.  The ink works very well for Silhouette stamps.  I colored the water using a Copic Marker.  The sky was created using a Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and Wilted Violet Distress Ink.  I used silver, black, purple and designer paper to create the mats.

 



On my second card, I stamped the silhouette Swan Scene on card stock using the same black ink.  I used  the Day and Night Soft Pan Pastel Palette to create the water.  I used the Sunrise and Sunset Soft Pan Pastel Palette to create the sky.  I used black and Orange Sherbet Card stock to create the mats.

                               I have no idea what is going on with blogger, I used                     

                               left alignment for the text and it started out that way and                                    

                                changed the alignment for me to have to correct, as well    

                                and now has started double spacing the lines.  Please  

                                excuse look of my blog this week.  I hope it is better next 

                       week.
