QKD Royal Blog Hop - Aug. 31

It is the end of August! In fact, the last day of August, the last Tuesday of August! So, that means that tomorrow -- yes, tomorrow is the new release day of QKD!!! And new releases means new goodies and that means happiness!!!

So, even though it is August (just barely), the hop this week focuses on the new stamps! The challenge this week was open -- anything but a card, with an attempt to make ATCs or art journal pages!

You should have started from the fabulous Queen Kat Designs blog, hopped along to the Whimsical Ink Sorority blog, and now you are here at my blog!

And here are my two ATCs!

Aren't they the cutest things!!! Not the ATCs of course, but the new stamps from QKD! They are from a set called Creepy Kids! There are three in all, but these two were the ones I decided to use for my project! I used the other one in another project that I will share soon!

Thanks for stopping by but now it is time to head off to Jules' blog to see what she has in store for today.

Another Tuesday??? Yes, it is, hard to believe that August is almost over. The hop today is an inspiration challenge and we got to use this cool inspiration photo from Crate & Barrel. Yummy!!!!

I used the Anticipation Kitty stamp by Melia! You know how much I love Melia's stamps and this one is no exception. This kitty is ready to dive into his cupcake!!!

Aug. 17 - QKD Blog Hop!

It's time for a color challenge!!! Queen Kat Designs is focusing on some soft colors this month - rose, butter, and melon.

Now, to the 'business' of the hop. You should have started at the QKD blog (because you definitely do not want to miss anything!) and hopped along. You should be hopping from the WIS blog to mine.

And here's my card. I used the Mommy 1 stamp. The kraft envelope I grunged up a bit with some white paint but it still can open and close and would be perfect for a gift card for a new mommy!

Thanks so much for stopping by but it is time to head off to Jules' blog to see what she has for this week.

Hop Hop Hop - QKD's Aug. 10 Blog Hop

Did you not love the designs from last week. I had such a great time hopping along and seeing all the wonderful creations by my team members!

Now, to the 'business' of the hop. You should have started at the QKD blog (because you definitely do not want to miss anything!) and hopped along. You should be hopping from the WIS blog to mine. Did you know that the WIS blog has a challenge each week? Check out Saturday's Verona Challenge to play along.

Okay, week 2 = sketch challenge. And here's the sketch

This week is the second week of releases, but I did actually use the same stamp as last week - Fashion Dress #4. I cannot get enough of the Fashion Dress stamp series!!!

These stamps are so classy that no other work is needed to them - just stamp and use. I added some rubons and ribbon to my card and that is it -- yes, the "stitches" are rubons!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, now it is time to see what Jules' creation is for the week. I know it will be fabulous!!! So, hop along to Jules' blog and enjoy the rest of your hop (and day!)

August??? QKD New Releases Blog Hop!

Oh my! It is August!!! I am excited because it is now time for the QKD new release blog hop (and I loved my stamps for this month) but also in shock because summer is over!!!

But, it is Tuesday and that means it is time for the QKD blog hop and yes, this week features new releases and a sketch. Here is the sketch

You should have started at the QKD blog, hopped along, made it to the Whimsical Ink Blog and now you are here.

And here is my card

I did start with the sketch but my card took a life of its own and turned out different from the sketch! I got to play with one of the fabulous Fashion Dress Stamps!! I love these -- so elegant and classy. I used some glitter to dress up the bottom of the dress but it is fabulous with or without any embellishing!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, but now it is time to head off to Jules blog to see what she has for us this week.
