Flamingos and Wildgrass - Blue Knight Rubber Stamps

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!

I am so excited today to be back again with another beautiful stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. I made two cards from one stamp set. 

 I created a video on my You Tube Channel that details how I made the card:

I created the above card first by creating my background with PanPastels. I used Magenta, Ultramarine Blue, Turquoise, Burnt Sienna Tint and Bronze. I used the Colorless Blender to blend the background colors. Then I used a stamp positioning tool to stamp the Wild Grass and the Flamingos using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. I used the sentiment "Happy Anniversary" from Mini Greetings 1 and two birds from the Birds 2 stamp set to finish the card. I sprayed the card with Krylon Mat sealant and then placed the card panel on a black card base. It is such a gorgeous stamp set and it looks great with the Pan Pastels as the background.


For my second card, I used the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Cloud Stencil and Turquoise PanPastel to create clouds. I then stamped the images from the Stamp Set with Versafine Clair Nocturne Black Ink. I sprayed the card with Krylon Mat sealant and then placed the card panel on a black card base.

Pink Zinnia Createful Heart Design Team

 Hello! Welcome to my Blog. 

Today I am sharing a layered card featuring the super cute " Summer Zinnia" Digital Stamp from Createful Heart Designs:  https://marketplace.zibbet.com/createful-heart-design/summer-zinnia-digital-stamp




 I created this card by following these steps:

 1. Printed the image using my inkjet printer. 

2. Colored the image with Ohuhu Alcohol Markers. 

3. Using my Brother Scan n Cut to cut the image.

4. Selected Pink Polka Dot Pattern Paper to layer beneath the colored image. Layered that on top of neon green card stock (with cherries embossed).  Used a corner chomper to round the corners on all the layered paper pieces. Glued the colored image and all the layered papers to the hot pink card base. 

5. Die cut the sentiment "Friend” from a three-layer die made by HoneyBee Stamps. Using Versafine Claire Ink “Charming Pink” I heat embossed the stamped words “Thank You For Being A Friend” from HoneyBee Stamps “Friend” stamp set. This ink is a pigment ink so it stays wet and you can emboss with it. I used Brutus Monroe Embossing Powder in Icicle (clear).   I used pop dots behind the small sentiment strips to give the card dimension.

 This is my 11th month as a member of the Design Team for Createful Heart Design, a digital stamp and digital paper company. The owners of Createful Heart Design, Mary, and her husband Mark draw all the digital stamps by hand and Mary designs the digital papers on her computer. It is exciting to be a part of this design team and I hope that you will check out their online store. Here is a link to the online shop:

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Wetlands Stamp

Hello and Welcome to my Blog.  Thank you for visiting today. I have two cards for the Blue Knight Rubber Stamp Design Team using the Wetlands Stamp. For my first card I used Spectra Noir Shimmer Brush Pens to create a bright and vibrant scene.  


I created a video on my You Tube Channel detailing how this card was created:


I used water color paper and water proof ink to stamp the image. I colored the water in Aquamarine and used various colors of green to color the grass and the trees. For the mountains I used white gouache paint mixed with Brutus Monroe Black Aquapigment to create the color gray. I stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday from the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Mini Sentiments 1 set in the top left hand corner of the card. I stamped a trio of three birds from the Birds 1 stamp set in the top right hand corner of the card. I also stamped the small ducks from the Footbridge stamp set in the water. I colored the sun with Yellow Orange Aquapigment from Brutus Monroe. 


For my second card, I used Ohuhu Alcohol Markers to color a winter marshlands scene. I then used 4" Double Sided clear adhesive, covering the entire card panel, then sprinkled the entire surface with Tim Holtz Distress Glitter. This created a winter scene. 



Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you found some inspiration and will stop again.
