Too short...

Have you REALLY gotten into the whole inchy thing? I haven't. I think 1" is just too small to work with to really show off anything that's worth anything... So... Nikki came up with the concept of "Shorties" they are 1.5" X 1.75" and are the purrrrfect size to use and easy to create with. Take a look at some Shorties she made... This pic is with the shorties just colored and no bling..

This pic is with the shorties decked out and ready to par-tay!

How stinkin fun are they?? Here are some cards that Nikki created with the fun little shorties.

The stamps she used are called "Cupcake Friends" and will make their debut on November 1st. These fun funky stamps were designed by our very own SarahJane! Don't miss their entry into the world on November 1st. They are sure to sell quick!
Have you tried to make "shorties"? If not, get on it! It's a new addiction that you won't need a 12 step program for! :)

Official QKD WCMD Challenge

What do you think of when I say the word Fall? Not "ouch that hurt" kind of fall.. But the season.. What pops in my minds is warmth, leaves falling, pumpkins, fresh baked bread and goodies, and the holidays are upon us... What colors do you think of when you think about Fall? I think of dark warm colors such as browns, reds, golden yellows, olive greens and the like.

Our challenge to you is to create 2 cards.... 1 greeting card and 1: 6X6 recipe card. Use the things I've mentioned above and then add 1 thing you think of when you think Fall. (*Note you don't have to use ALL the things I've mentioned they are just ideas). Cards MUST have at least 2 stamped images on them.

To enter you must do BOTH cards. No exceptions. Entries must be posted in the comment section of this post by midnight PST tonight October 4th. Link us to your card making sure your link works. If it doesn't and we can't see your creations you will not be entered.
Here's some inspiration for your challenge. I used the October and November Take 3 stamp kits from Queen Kat Designs for the stamps.

Each person gets 1 entry and winner will be drawn out of a hat.

The prize will be a 6X6 kit from Queen Kat Designs. Picture below.

Royal Kit Kat- Jules Diley

Inky Jester- Irene Tan (Coming Jan 09)

I want to welcome everyone to the Royal Court and say thank you for being here. The year to come will be filled with only great things.

Thank you to everyone who applied. It was such a hard decision to make and we ended up picking up a few more people than planned but it was the BEST call we've had yet. If you didn't make it, please don't be discouraged. There are many design teams that are looking for people. I wish we could have accepted all 100+ applications. There will be other calls in the future. Why not try out for a guest designer spot with us?
