QKD - Monday Blog Hop

Here it is - Monday! Today's Monday Blog Hop for Queen Kat Designs was to create a banner using QKD stamps. You should have started the hop from the QKD blog and then hopped along and from Jules' blog, you should have hopped to mine.

Okay, back to the challenge for this week. I thought about birthday banners and holiday banners. Since this is Easter week, I seriously considered making a banner for Easter and even thought about using egg shapes for the sections, then it hit me. I wanted something that I would also use more than just once. Then I thought about a banner for my scrap area. This project is so not my normal style, but I absolutely love the finished project!

I used some kraft tags, crumbled them, and inked them up with Tim Holtz distress inks. I also pulled out my Grungeboard and some Prima flowers to connect the tags all together. I started pulling out my favorite QKD stamps to use with the project; while I pulled out more than I ended up using, here are the stamps that made it onto the project. I used a stamp set from a previous Get Inked kit, make sure you have a subscription so you do not miss out on the fun!! I also used the Dressform Stamp, the Fairy Background Stamp, the Light Up the Night, the Child's Play Stamp Set and the Aged Keys Stamp Set

Here is my banner:

And here are some closeups.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Next is time for Wynneth's blog.

New Releases Part 2 - QKD

Queen Kat Designs has done it again! Vicki and all the stamp designers have come up with some fabulous new designs for this month and so many of them feature fun designs inspired by Alice in Wonderland!!

Okay, did you start from the beginning of the hop at the QKD blog. If you did you found the "dark side" of QKD -- the Dark Ink Sorority! If you like your stamps a little grungy, a little punk, then this is the place for you. That is why I love QKD so much!!! You can be cutesy or glam or hard core rock and find stamps that are just for you!!!

Okay, back to the new releases this week, you should have hopped here from Jules' blog. Now it is time for my new release, using the sketch that you can find on the QKD blog!

This week I am featured a cute little Bunny set, perfect for Easter!!

Now, time to head off to Wynneth's blog; she is crafting with the WIS kit this month and if you don't have this kit, then once you see her creations, you will definitely need to stop by the store and add it!!!
