You're my best bud, Turkey card!!

This card was designed for todays FS challenge over at SCS. Todays FS is EbethNeu and this is the card I cased On this card I needed to change two or more things, so I changed the colors, and the stamp. I only used a sentiment stamp" You're my best bud" from Queen Kat Designs. The sentiment set I used is " You're My" !! I love love love this set, I have used all the sentiments, and they are sooo darling!!
The Turkey I made! I learned how to make this turkey from our SU card club, isnt he cute?????? I did add a bow to my card, and change the shape that the sentiment is on, it wouldnt fit on the other.
Cheryl W

Directions to make this cute little turkey are below.

To create the turkeys feathers:

Step 1: count five scallope, and fold that portion of the circle down, as shown to the left.

Step 2: Turn circle over and mark the center at the top and the bottom, now count two scallops, and score from there to center. Like shown. do that on both sides of the circle.

Step 3: fold flat edge down from each side so folded edges line up with the middle.

Turkey card you will need:
Choc chip: 1 3/8 circle for the body and one scallop circle punch for the feathers.

More Mustard: 3/4 circle for the head.

Real Red: 1/4 circle for the buttons and one scallop circle for feathers.

Old Olive: scallop circle for feathers.

Basic Black: 3/4 square trimmed down for hat, double circle punch for eyes.

Pumpkin Pie: Boho blossems for his feet and a petal from one of the flowers for his beak. Adhere feathers to your card , and glue all punches to form a fine feathered friend!!

Week #4 with Julie

It's been a great month having Julie on our Royal Court. We would like to extend huge thanks to her for her time and energy that she's given us over the past month. Below are the final 3 pages of her awesome tag book that she created with Queen Kat Designs supplies.

From Juile: "Amber is a wonderful friend of mine from here at home (we attend the same church). For the last page, I focused on a picture from last week - I was blessed enough to have just gotten back from the infamous Stamp & Cruise which I went on with Amber & Charmaine. The stamp set was perfect for this project as I was able to just ink "Friend" for the first 4 pages to play out my theme! Everything just went together perfectly!"

It was our pleasure to have Julie as our Guest Royal Court member this month. We will be taking a break for December and will start up January with TWO new Guest Designers. That's right!! We have 2 designers to share with you in January.

Week #3 with Ms. Julie

I can't believe it. It's already week 3 in our feature on Julie Masse. This week we will begin a 2 part feature on a lovely tag book that Julie made from the packet we sent her. Below is the cover and first couple of pages in her book.

Here's a snipit from Julie on her tag book: "I decided to make the tag booklet as a little reminder of some of the wonderful friends I have in my life . . . there is no way I could fit them all so I had to pick who to include based on who I had pictures of - lol! :) The first one was obvious, my wonderful hubby! The next 2 (Kim & Charmaine) are friends I have met and made through blogging."

I am loving this little tag book. QKD sent her some stuff from the October kit of the month and she really put it to work! Way to go Julie.

Free Shipping!

Use coupon code: fsbday at the store and get free shipping on all US & Canadian orders. $7 flat rate shipping on international orders.

Let the party begin!

Today kicks off a week of celebration here at Queen Kat Designs. We will begin the week with a drawing. When you place an order this week between Monday and Friday your name will go into a bowl and we will draw a winner on Saturday morning.

We have some fun planned throughout the week here and on PCP at our group. So make sure you stop by both places and check in all week. Wednesday is our actual birthday and we will have a huge blog hop with challenges and prizes that day. Don't miss it!

Until next time.. Happy Stamping.

Week #2 with Julie

This week we will feature another card made by our wonderful and talented Guest Royal Court Member, Julie Masse. This one is a fun and funky Black n White butterfly card.From Julie: "I made the card using Bazzill black cardstock and the finished size is 7x3.75". I used the iron on strip that was sent in the kit down the left side of the card and used a corner rounder punch on the 2 right hand corners. The butterfly and sentiment are embossed using white embossing powder. I used one of the black epoxy flower buttons sent with the kit and backed it with a white felt flower tied on with black linen thread."

How easy was that card? And it's a stunna! Thank you for sharing this week Julie! I'm looking forward to next week with you.

Guest Royal Court Member

We are very proud & excited to have Julie Masse this month as our guest Royal Court member! Below is a brief bio about Julie.

"I live in Maine and am a SAHM of 4 beautiful children, Emma (6), Anna (almost 5), Ethan (3), and Aaron (18 months). My husband Jeff is a chemist in a small laboratory in New Hampshire. While I have always loved to do crafty things, I began stamping seriously as a hobby about the time our first daughter was born. I became a SU! demo several years ago and after starting a blog last year have discovered a whole wonderful world of stamping goodness!! There are so many wonderful stamp companies and general and talented stampers out there that I have been privileged to know! My work has been published in Paper Crafts magazine and will be in Cards magazine in March 2009."

We sent Julie a little packet with the October Royal kit papers and embellies in it along with our Friends stamp set. She has worked up some awesome designs for us and we will be sharing them throughout the month with you on our blog here. Visit Julie on her blog as well.

Welcome to the Court, Julie! We are happy we are able to share this month with you.
