Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Mix and Match

Hello, my creative friends!

I'm pleased to share another Blue Knight Rubber Stamps project with you today.

I'm really enjoying these stamps! Wowzers!!! They stamp so precisely - gotta love well made stamps!

Again, the October theme is Mix 'n Match - we are to use one or more stamps from at least two stamp sets!

I am a part of a group that tries to meet once a year. We each bring a project, and there are 6 of us. So we start crafting about 9 a.m., break for lunch, and create all afternoon! It's a great time, and we make 6 fun projects. We also give each other little 'gifts', which is SO much fun! I chose to gift the ladies with a pretty Christmas die, but needed a way to gift wrap it. 



I had these Kraft envelopes in my stash, and decided to see how they would look stamped and colored. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored with a handful of Copic Markers. I used these Blue Knight Rubber Stamps products:







Hope you like it, and are inspired to check out the blog (link below) for more inspiration from the design team!

I'll be back with another BKRS creation on October 23rd!

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Mix 'n Match Take Two!

Hello, my creative friends!

I'm excited to share another Blue Knight Rubber Stamps project with you today.

Seriously, you've got to check out these stamps! Wowzers!!! They stamp beautifully the first time! No reinking these babies - they are etched so nicely!

Again, the theme for the month of October is Mix 'n Match - we are to use one or more stamps from at least two sets!

I made a card using these Blue Knight Rubber Stamps products:




For this card, I began with a piece of patterned paper, and stamped the flowers and Swallowtail using Versamark ink, and some Medevial Metals embossing powder. These were colored with Copic Markers, and sponged around using my make up brushes (still trying to get the hang of them...old dog, new tricks, right?). The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Black Ink. This sentiment is from the same set as the funny one I used last week. It's a great sent of words! Hope you like it, and are inspired to check out the blog (link below) for more inspiration from the design team!

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge...

Hi everyone - Happy Wednesday!

I have two posts up today - if you are looking for my Blue Knight Rubber Stamps post, scroll down (up?)...thanks!!!

It's time for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for Repeat Impressions.
Here is the inspiration board that Wendy gave us to work with:

  
I used Wildlife, Texture, and Stencil

Today, I used these Repeat Impressions Stamps:

4221 K Deer Family Silhouette

Here's what I made:


Wildlife is self-explanatory! The stencil, you can see in the background. For my texture, I tried cutting this pretty die from felt, burlap, and a few other things, but it's just not deep enough to cut through. SO....I winged it!  I glued toilet paper (un-used!) to a piece of thin cardstock, and sponged it all up in fallish colors.  Then, I die cut it and glued it on my background.
Not too crazy about the end result, but I'm working with a dead brain today, so it's got to be 'okay'!


Now it’s your turn! Create a card using the Tic-Tac-Toe board above, and link it up at The House that Stamps Built. Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them! Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Mix 'n Match

Hello, my dear friends!

I'm excited to share a special project with you today - I was invited to guest design for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps for the month of October!

If you've never been to their store or blog, you need to check them out. I love their beautiful stamps, and couldn't wait to tear into my package to see what new goodies I had to create with!

It's time to show you what I made for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps. For the month of October, the theme is Mix 'n Match using one or more stamps from at least two sets! I love a good challenge!

I made a card using these Blue Knight Rubber Stamps products:




Using the wreath building technique, I designed the focal image using the cute Mini Insects. These were colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The background is just a pretty piece of patterned paper. The butterfly at the bottom of the focal panel is the small butterfly from the Tiger Swallowtail set. My favorite part of this card was this fun sentiment! The card looks so serious and 'scripty' at a glance, and one has to just laugh out loud when they read the words - gotta love this sentiment set!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Be sure to check out the BKRS blog for more inspiration from their uber-talented design team!
I'll be back with another BKRS creation on October 9th!

Designer's Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built

Happy 1st Wednesday in October!
BOO! The month is upon us - how did this happen so quickly?

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamps challenge at The House that Stamps Built, and we have a new Designer’s Choice Challenge for you. Our hostess for the month is Joy, and she has challenged us to use 'Circles' on our creations! Please join us in our challenge, and create something using the theme: "Circles".  (Think card shape, focal panels, embellishments, background, etc.)

Here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:



For my card, I started with a white card base, and added sponged on circles in Halloween-ish colors. Added a few fun stamps to create an eerie (lol...too cute to spook, right?) scene, and finished the card off with a circle sentiment.

 And now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s DCC theme, and enter it in our challenge at The House that Stamps Built!  Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them!  Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!

2 Crafty Critter Crazies & Beccy's Place!

Good morning everyone!

Today, I am sharing another fun creation for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  This is such a fun group - each creation must include a critter, and you all know how much I love critters!

If you are looking for my Scor-Pal post, please scroll up (down???)!

Since it's the first of October, there is a brand new challenge at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge Blog!

The sponsor for September Beccy's Place.  Beccy's images are so so much fun! I couldn't wait to color this silly critter, and loved the sentiments in the 'Poultry in Motion' digital set. I chose the one that I'd be most likely to resemble! Aren't you just so eager to color this sweetie up yourself?

Here's my card:



I printed the image on white cardstock, then used Copic markers to color 'her' (me?). Then I printed twice more on pink and blue patterned papers, cutting out only the bathrobe and coffee cup. These items were glued (paper pieced) directly onto the main image. This funky designer paper made the perfect bacground!

Hope you like it!

Please check out the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies blog to see some great inspiration that the design team is sharing with you. We hope that you will all play along this month - can't wait to see your critter creations!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs and blessings,

Scor-Pal - Harvest or Fall Creation

Hello there, everyone!

This is my second post today. If you are looking for my 2 Crafty Critter Crazies post, just scroll up (down?)!
It's time for a new monthly challenge at Scor-Pal, and the theme is Harvest or Fall, and of course, more than one fold.

I created these easy Merci candy holders for a group of ladies at church. They seemed delighted with them - who among us can resist chocolate?

For my project, I used: Scor-Pal Eighths, and Scor-Tape 1/4".


Here's what I made:




These were pretty simple - the strip of cardstock is cut to 2" x 9.5"
Score this at 3.25", 3.75", 7", and 7.5".

As shown in the photo, on the longest section, punch a hole for the candy to go through, and put a strip of scor-tape at the top edge. Fold it up and adhere it down. Ta-da! Decorate front as desired!  Mine was simply decorated in fall colors. The stamp on the inside says 'Bless You'.

We also have a ton of inspiration in the Projects section of the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative! 

We hope to see your creations for Harvest or Fall in our 'More Than One Fold', Scor-Pal challenge!

Happy Scoring!
Patti J.
