Royal Kat Tuesday!

Hello all! Another fantastic Tuesday is upon us and I have another treat for you! Hopefully you've hopped here from the beginning of the hop, if not, go on back and see what Nina has for you!

This is the challenge week and we were asked to use a shoe as inspiration and go to town. Well, I have bit of a 'thing' for shoes and believe me, it wasn't difficult to find a pair for inspiration. Please pardon the terrible picture, left the camera at work and had to use the iphone. Don't get me wrong, MUCH better than my old phone pictures but the lighting is...eh.

My shoes. Open toe, leopard print with a suede bow. The only thing that would make them more perfect would be a heal. I'm a bit short and wear heels most days. Definitely need a pair of animal print heels... Sorry, shoe distracted.

This is what I came up with...
Again, bad lighting. MUCH better in person.... I found some yummy print paper in the stash and paired it with the locked gears stamp from QKD. A girl needs some sparkle and I added my own little sentiment.
Likey? me too.... Now, off with you to see Shannon! You enjoy!

Royal Kat Tuesday!

Welcome back to another installation of Royal Kat Tuesday! Hopefully I'm the second stop on your hop, if not, head on back here and see what Nina made!

This week we had a color challenge, chocolate brown, taupe, ginger and cranberry. I definitely think I made it into the color family with my card.

Again, I used the Vampire Ball stamp. Love them.. I colored with my Copics and I used some paper from my stash, I really should pay attention to where the paper comes from... Anywho, I envisioned this one more of a "Happy Homecoming" Card, complete with pesky little sister. Wouldn't it be cute if a little sis colored this and gave it to the older one to celebrate a special day? I just love all of the options available!

Well, that's it for me! You go now to Shannon's blog! I know she has something ridiculously cool waiting for you!

Royal Kat Tuesday!

Sorry, I'm running a little late today! Hopefully you've arrived here from the start of the hop, if not, head on over to the beginning and check out what Nina has for you!

As for me, we had a fantastic sketch to work with this week and here's my take on it.
I used the Vampire Ball stamp for this card and I have to say, I had to think about what kind of card I wanted this to be. I couldn't decide if this was a Vampy Bride and her flower girl or a vampire teen going to homecoming and her little sister behind her. For this one I went with the bridal idea. Perfect for a unique bride dontcha think? I colored them with my copics and used some fun fallish papers from my stash!

Well, that's all for me! head on over to Shannon and see what she has in store for you!

QKD Fall Hop!

Good Morning all! It's a fine day for a blog hop! Dontcha think? So, hopefully you've arrived here from Terri's blog and fallen in love with her awesomeness!

This is a fall inspired blog hop, and I don't know about you but nothing screams fall to me more than Halloween! You know I just HAD to throw out a little Halloween something for you.

For this I used the new QKD steampunk inspired background stamp. It was stamped with Versamark and heat set with gold embossing powder. I just love the way it looks on the black background. I also used some patterned paper from last year that was still in my stash as well as some SU! card stock. The sentiment is a rub-on that was affixed to a pre-cut oval. Again, I bought all of these supplies last year and I'm not terribly sure where they all came from.

The one thing that I am sure of is that your next stop (and I believe your last?) is the QKD store! Head on over there and grab up this stamp as well as the others you've seen featured on today's hop!

Enjoy and happy shopping!

Royal Kat Tuesday!

I'm BAAAACK! Did you miss me? I have been in midst of boxes and moving and packing and unpacking and building and all other sorts of ridiculousness over the last several weeks. Thankfully we are about 80% unpacked and I have found "most" of my stuff. I went through a big purge right before we moved and I suspect some of the things I can't find made their way to the trash. It's OK, we didn't really need them, I just think they should be there.

SOOOOOooooo, It's the first of the month and that means NEW STAMPS!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!! I am super excited for new rubber and the ones I got to play with did not disappoint! Now hopefully you arrived here from the QKD blog, if not go on back there and start at the beginning like you're supposed to! :)

For this week we had a fantastic sketch to play with and I used my new steampunk inspired background stamp.
You love it, right? Fall finally arrived in NC and I found myself pulling out the dark oranges and chocolate browns when making cards this week. For this I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with gold shakey-embossy-stuff on Kraft paper. The patterned paper is an old SU! pattern I believe as is the Dusty Durango paper. For my sentiment I "found" some Thickers that we begging to be added on this card.

Like it? You can score one for your very own at the store tomorrow when they go on sale. In the meantime, head on over and see what awesomeness Shannon has waiting in store for you!
