There is a collage on the home page that I made specifically for that page. It's about 5X7 or a little larger in real life. It's a 3D collage that's handstamped, hand colored and made with love. It will be signed and framed. There will be 1 lucky person who will own this picture on November 19th. More details to come. Don't miss this celebration as we turn 2.

Just a few supplies can create a simple, but stunning card!
Grab chalks, cotton balls, a scrap piece of paper, card stock, a folded card, some ink, and the QKD stamp of your choice. Plus any embellishments you would like!
Take your scrap piece of paper and use it as a mask. I tore mine to give it some texture. Apply chalk to the cardstock using the mask to cover and then gradually moving down for successive layers, until you are finished. Gently blow on the cardstock to remove any loose chalk. I inked the edges of my chalked page
Then stamp your image. You may emboss the image if you would like, but it is not necessary. Embellish as desired!

The Queen Kat Designs Royal Court (www.katstamps.com) is looking for some new Royal Stamping Maids. This team receives new stamps each month that we have new releases (most months). The term is 7 months for this round. (November 2008 - May 2009).
We are accepting applications from September 20, 2008 through September 30, 2008. You are not required to use Queen Kat Designs images for this call but it’s a plus if you do. At this time we are only accepting applications from US residents and people with current blogs.
Royal Court Responsibilities
Royal Court members will create 4 original card designs per month. A document outlining assignment requirements will be provided if you are selected for the team. In addition, Royal Court members are expected to submit work for publication in print media and to post QKD projects regularly in online galleries and blogs. Designers must be able to submit their best work consistently and to meet regular deadlines. Royal Court term will end on May 31, 2009.
Royal Court Perks
Each month you will receive new stamps to work with and keep for your collection. At This time QKD does not require actual samples to be turned in, so that means you can keep whatever you make. Royal Court members receive generous discounts on QKD stamps and kits. Royal Court members will be given a discount code for Queen Kat Designs purchases that they are permitted to share with friends and family. And more…
Are you interested? Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Royal Court Questionnaire. This is an automated system. So please do NOT email questions to this address as they will not be answered. If you have questions, please email them to: email@example.com
Say the color for January was Blue.. You may receive a Blue Chalk Ink, Blue Embossing Ink and Blue Brilliance.. included in the kit will still be the exclusive stamp set for the Get Inked! Kit and a technique sheet.
The techniques will be a mix each month instead of focusing on just 1 kind of ink, you will get more of a mixture and your ink collection will grow by leaps and bounds! We are having a fun time putting these kits together and if you've enjoyed using them leave us some love or email us to let us know. info@ katstamps. com (take spaces out).
Queen Kat Designs and the Inky Jesters are very excited about this change and can't wait for the new year!! Happy Stamping!
