Half Bouquet

Hello, my dear friends! 
It's time to share a project for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.
I used a stamp set from the new release called Half Bouquet.
I colored the image using Chameleon Color Tone Pens, and fussy cut the image to mount on an embossed layer.  I added the sentiment from Good Morning Rooster.
I love the simplicity and bold colors of this card.
Hope you like it too!

In Case No One Told You Today...

Hello, Friends. 
Today I am using the wonderful sentiments 
from The Project Bin to cheer up a friend. I am using  a set called  #bff.

I used an embossing folder with a cut out heart and colored it with bold colors.
Then I dry brushed with gesso to add texture and soften the colors.
Inserting the stamped sentiment and adding the arrow completed the process.



See you next Friday!

Prayer Flower

Hello, my dear friends! 

It's time to share a project for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps and 
it's a new release month.  There are seven new sets to choose from and you can see them by clicking the links below.

I am spotlighting Prayer Flower and ribbon from The Ribbon Place.
I white embossed the image and used Peerless Watercolors. 
Then I used a stitched die frame and an embossing folder.
I love blue-green and pink together, don't you?

Chickadee

Hello, my dear friends! 
It's time to share a project for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps.  

I've been playing with Pan Pastels purchased at the BKRS store linked below.
It is so easy to create a background and that's how this card started.
After stamping the Chicadee image and the Good Morning Rooster sentiment,
I die cut a deckle frame, added a ribbon corner, and a rectangular frame.
The ribbon was provided by The Ribbon Place.

HB Pretty Lady

Hello, Friends. 
I love to mix embossing folders with sentiments and embellishments.
Today I am using  Birthday Girl and a fancy embossing folder
and a sentiment from The Project Bin.



Inking up the inside of the embossing folder creates a beautiful background and then I sponged Distress Oxide Ink on the sentiment.



See you next Friday!

Prayer Flower

Hello, my dear friends! 
It's time to share a project for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps 
and it's from the new July release.
My project today uses the stamp set called Prayer Flower.

I heat embossed it with black embossing powder and added Pan Pastels
to shade the flower and leaves.  Then just a few die frames
and the card was complete.
The largest layer frame was colored with Pan Pastels
purchased from BKRS as well.
You can find them here.
I love the subtle shading you can get with the Pan Pastels.
