Beautiful Soma

Happy Friday everyone I hope you had a good week and are looking forward to a fun weekend. Today I am going to showcase our Designer Miranda and her beautiful project featuring  Soma by Myka Jelina.

I love what Miranda has done with this piece it is so tranquil and calm it has an Asian feel to. It is truly stunning with the little pink flowers she has running through it. The colors Miranda used in this blend so beautifully together.

I told you it was a stunning piece.. If you would like to see more of Miranda's work or any of our other sorority sisters please stop by the Whimsical Ink Sorority 2.0 and take the pledge with us

Reindeer Party

Hello, crafters, it's Pat, the Royal Nanny at the Castle Playground!  I'm here with a card created by our DT member, Jamie.  She used a QKD November release stamp called Reindeer Stamp by the lovely Kristie Silva.  Jamie likes to build dimension on her cards, so she stamped Reindeer four times, using pop dots to adhere the images in front.

These reindeer are cute, and we all know who that is on the left, with his "nose so bright"!  You can find more of Kristie's images at the Shoppe, as well as all the talented artists showcased at the Castle Playground, a Queen Kat Designs blog.

Good Morning all.  Can you believe this is the last Saturday of the month?  Unbelieveable.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Today's  project is a tag that I made using the Butterfly Surprise Box stamp from Joanna Bromley.  I love this little stamp.  It's so cute and versatile.

I made this tag by stamping the image 6 times on white card stock in different colors of Distress Inks.  I cut two of the main images in quarters and used them for the background.  I crinkled my tag and sprayed it with water to distress it.  I then used a direct to paper technique to add four different colors of DI inks.  I used my heat gun to dry it and then attached the images to it.  For the four little tags, I cut each one 1/8th smaller than the one before it.  I added a brad and attached them to the middle of the card in a fan.  I did ink all of the edges with DI Vintage Photo.  I added some multicolored trim to the top and added a sentiment.  There also is a little bling  in the corners.

I hope you enjoyed my project and have a good time perusing through the QKD  Store.  Thanks for stopping in and God bless you.

Favors From a Favorite

I host our family's Christmas dinner each year and I always come up with some kind of favor to give to each guest.  One of the ideas knocking around in my head is to give each guest a cupcake to take home (or eat if pumpkin pie, cheesecake and Christmas cookies aren't enough).  I found these cute squat Mason jars at a rummage sale and picked up a handful.
I thought that Crystal Moore's image, Solar Plexus, a Queen Kat Designs November release stamp, would be perfect to decorate my jar.  I decided to stamp the image onto a pastel green background, using VersaMark ink and red embossing powder.  The image really pops!
I attached it to the top and for this photo, placed candy inside the jar.  I might even go with the candy contents instead of the cupcake, because I have these wonderful bite-sized Mars chocolates left over from Halloween, and I thought "do I really need to add another baking project to my full day?" LOL
I added Christmas ribbon to the top screw-on lid, and just a single Christmas sticker, since I want all that candy to shine through to my guests.  Simple yet pretty, and I can do them up well before the actual celebration, since chocolate lasts for six months, and its in an airtight container.

QKD has released some beautiful stamps this month, and Christmas is coming!!  Get your wish list going for Santa (or hubby) to choose from now and check out the Shoppe!!

Hi ya'll.  I'm here with another card using the cute Ms. Claus stamp by Sandra Caldwell.  I just love her rendition of older people.  Some of them are very funny.

Today's card is of course a Christmas card.  I used two oval die cut DPs from DCWV for the background.  I cut a piece of red card stock for a base and ran it though my Cuttlebug with the Holiday Words embossing folder. I tied a piece of white satin ribbon round the card and tie a cute bow knot.  I used paper piecing to make the focal image.  I did this by stamping the image on the white card stock and then again on red.  I fussy cut out her hat and dress and glued them on to the white stamped image.  I used Spectrum Noir pens to color in the parts that needed coloring and added alittle bit of glitter pen to the bell and the holly.  And of course I had to add some bling to the corner.

Thanks again for stopping in and I hope you will hop on over to the Queen Kat Designs Store and check out all the wonderful stamps you will find there.

Hope you all have a great day!  God bless.

Good Morning friends.  Welcome to another Showcase Saturday for Queen Kat Designs.  Today's card uses the  Surprise Butterfly Box by Joanna Bromley  I love this little box.  It could be for birthdays, congratulations, marriage, engagement, retirement.  This stamp has so many possiblitlies.

I used Spectrum Noir alcohol pens to color in the image.  I did a few spots of Sakura Glitter Pen just for some bling.  I rounded the corners or the image, inked them in DI Vintage Photo and matted on a gold card stock with rounded corners.  The DPs are all from my stash and are from K&Co.  I added yellow/gold gems in the corners.  The sentiment is from a pack that I had hidden in my stash.

I hope you all like this card and will take a hop on over to QKD shop and take a peek at all the wonderful stamps.  Have a wonderful day and God bless you.

Oh I had A little Chicken.....

Well, I had a little chicken,
And she wouldn't lay an egg,
So I rubbed hot water all around her leg.
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the gosh darn chicken laid a hard boiled egg!
Well, I had a little chicken,
And she wouldn't lay an egg,
So I rubbed hot chocolate all around her leg.
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the gosh darn chicken laid an Easter egg!

Well, I had a little chicken,
And she wouldn't lay an egg,
So I rubbed some butter up and down her leg,
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the gosh darn chicken laid a nice fried egg!
Well, I had a little chicken,
And she wouldn't lay an egg,
So I rubbed some vinegar up and down her leg,
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the gosh darn chicken laid a pickled egg!

Happy Monday everyone I thought I would brighten your day with this little ditty.. This song has been rattling around in my head ever since I received this stamp in the mail and by gosh is it ever cute... This month I have the pleasure of working with Frying Chicken by Sandra Caldwell.

Mixed Media Meets Crystal Moore

Today I have a fun tag to show you.  Now that Halloween is over, my mind is churning with cards and tags and favors and projects for Christmas, so I wanted to use a new November-release QKD stamp from artist Crystal Moore called Solar Plexus.
I started with a wooden tag for the base and used distress inks in green and red.  Then I stamped Solar Plexus in black and filled in parts with red and green Spectrum Noir markers.
I chose a Tim Holtz' Ideology Word Band that reads: "Encourage your hopes, Not your fears" and wired it onto the tag.  I added a few Skittles, a vintage button and some greenery with a flower before I used Stickle on parts of the stamped image for a little shimmer.
I finished off my tag with a bit of lace on the bottom edge, and some fiber at the top.
I hope you check out more of Crystal's stamps at the SHOPPE.

Hello folks.  Emily here with another project on this cold Saturda morning.  Today is Saturday which means a new project for Queen Kat Designs.  Today I am using a new stamp by Sandra Cadwell called Ms. Claus.  I think she's adorable.  Sandra has some of the most amazing stamps over in the Queen Kat Store.  If you haven't checked her out, you most definitely should.

I thought I would change things up a bit and make something besides a card with this cute stamp.

I started out making a circle card, but then changed my mind.  I made this into a Christmas ornament for our tree.  I used a cd to trace around for the card base and the DP. The three lacy die cuts came from friend of mine.  I stamped the image on GP #110 card stock, red card stock and green card stock.  I used the paper piecing technique for Ms. Claus.  I used a dark gray Spectrum Noir pen to color her in.  Everything else is paper pieced.  I cut her out and pop dotted her into the middle of the circle.  I used a light green glitter pen to color in the holly on the hat.  The glitter stars are die cut stars ran through my Xyron and dipped in silver glitter.  I added a red ginham bow and punched a hole at the top to hang.

All in all, I think she turned out very cute.  I can't wait to put this little cutie on my tree.

Thanks for stopping in here at Queen Kat's Blog.  Have a great day!
