Hot Air Balloons over the Horse Barn

I had fun making this card using the Blue Knight Horse Barn stamp.  I loved adding the colorful hot air balloons flying high in the clouds.  I colored the image with copics.  I used dimensionals to pop up the balloons and the cloud.  The sentiment is also from Blue Knight Stamps and it is Mini Greetings 2.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Hope you are having a great week.

Art Neko - Gerbera Daisies

Here is a card I made for Art Neko using the  "So Many Books So Little Time, Gerbera Daisies Bookmark".   My intentions were to emboss it in silver on Navy card stock until the kraft cards stock on my table grabbed my attention.   I thought it would be pretty to color the blue flowers on the Kraft and I really do like how it turned out. 

Be sure and check out  the Art Neko store.  They have lots of styles and varieties.

Blue Knight - My Quiet Place

 The Ways To Use It challenge today is to make a card using your favorite stamp. This was a hard one. Hmmm, do I use my old favorite stamp or my new favorite stamp? I just received this Blue Knight stamp and it is my new favorite. I think this porch could be my new favorite place to be, as well.

I used the following Blue Knight Stamp sets,  My Quiet Place, Sand Castle & Accessories, Beach Chairs & Accessories and Mini Greetings 2.

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps has just released several new sets.  Be sure and go by to check them out.

Amazing Eagle

Here is a card I made with the Blue Knight image Eagle with Fish.   I wanted to keep this a CAS style because the Eagle is just beautiful and it really did not need anything to go with it so I just chose a pretty frame for it.    I thought the blue and silver were the perfect colors to compliment the fishing Eagle.

Thanks, for stopping by to take a look.

Friends of Flourishes - Watercolor

I am back today with a card for the Friends of Flourishes Blog challenge.    Gloria challenged us to use water coloring on our cards.  Thanks,  Gloria, for getting me out of my comfort zone.

I stamped on water color paper using my Flourishes Endearing Rose stamp set.  I used Zig Markers and a water color brush to color my image. 

Here are links to my team mates blogs.  I hope you will check out their water coloring cards.

ArtNeko - Calligraphy and Chinese Chop Signature

Here is a card I made for the Art Neko blog.  I used the Calligraphy and Chinese Chop Signature and the  Bamboo and Kanji Bookmark.

Nothing says Asian better than red and black paper,  add some gold  paper and gold embossing to make even more of a statement.  I mounted my stamped pieces over a dry embossed white panel.  I think it helps to make the images pop.

Please visit the Art Neko Blog for more details on my card.

Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend.

Art Neko - Happy Birthday Iris Fold Kimono

Happy Valentine's Day.   I hope love is in the air in your little corner of the world.  It is dreary and rainy in mine, but I am sure Cupid is out there somewhere.  ~smile~

Yesterday for the Technique Lovers challenge at Splitcoast, the challenge was to do Iris Folding.  I have never done Iris folding, but always wanted to.  Since I needed a card for  Art Neko Rubber Stamps today, I thought it was only appropriate to Iris Fold a Kimono.    I used the Art Neko Vertical Text stamp.   I stamped Happy on one side and then birthday on the other.  I stamped in Versa Mark and then embossed with gold embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Thanks, for coming by today.

Blue Knight - Pretty In Blue

I wanted to share the card I made with a stamp from Blue Knight Rubber Stamps called "Motherhood".   Here is a picture of the actual stamp:

I love this  Motherhood stamp with the little girl holding Mom's hand while carrying the cute bear in the other hand.  I needed a card with just the mom so I only used part of the stamp for my card today.

FOF Flourishes Flower

Davi is the challenge hostess for the Friends Of Flourishes  this week.  She has challenged us to put flowers on our cards.  I used the Flourishes Stamp set called Camellia love.    I colored the image using Copic Markers.  I used several layers of the pink and black card stock and I like the elegance of the frames.    I added a few pearls to the card when I was done.

I really appreciate you coming by.  You can find links below to see what my team mates made for this challenge.  Be sure to check them out.

Have a great and fun weekend.

Thinking of You Twisted Tree

Here is a card I made using the Art Neko Stamp Sheet -  Cowboy Up.  I thought this tree image could be used for a thinking of you card for a gentleman friend.  I used Authenique paper and I used a punch to make the corners.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Tiger Lily

I made this card using a Art Neko rubber stamp, Framed Tiger Lil with Latin Text and Kanji.   
I used a black overlay sent to me by a friend.  I added a piece of gold mesh behind this image but it is not showing up very well.  The image was colored with copics.

Thanks, for stopping by today.

Life Down On The Farm and Tasty Truck Valentine

I just received this stamp last week and could not wait to use it.  I love scenes like this one that everyone can relate to in some way.  Maybe they lived on a farm or their grandparents farmed.  I so not have relatives that lived on a farm,  but for some reason,  I love old barns.  I think of how sad it will be when we no longer see these well constructed barns.

The stamps I used are  Barn with Silo, Mini Antique Vehicles and Mini Greetings 1 all from Blue Knight Rubber stamps.   I colored the images with copic markers.  I  used a cloud template to make the clouds using distress ink.  I used two dies, one is a windmill from Taylored Expressions and I am not sure what brand the cloud die is.

Here is another card I made for a Splitcoast color challenge.   I am gearing up for Valentine's day.



Thank you for coming by today,  I certainly appreciate it.
