Hello and welcome to the queen kat final royal hop for 2010 you should be joining me from chris’s blog if not start back at the begining of the hop right here so you don;t miss out on any of the great inspiration my fellow team members have to share with you. For my card i used amy brown lizzie fairy and my papers are from basic grey and she is colored up with copic markers and a bit of chalk to add some background behind here. Make sure you stop by the store and pick up your own queen kat stamps. Now continue on the hop to the wis blog.
It been snowing around here and its cold and i decided that since karens doodles was going with the theme of anything goes as long as you a karens doodles image then i was going to go with something warm and fun. I used maggie and me then along with these pretty red flower paper from the cafe Mediterranean stack from dcwv. I used copics to color my image, the butterfly is a nestablites die and the border punch is from stamping up. Image is cut out with my lacey squares from nestablites. Hope you feel a bit warmer.
Over on the bells and whistles challenge blog this week the theme is new years and a bells and whistles image. I was really struggling with this theme cause i only have a few bells and whistles images and none of them said happy new year to me. Then i though well what about a january birthday type card with cupcake. Then i though okay what papers do i have that scream new years. I dug thru my stash and found these papers from dcwv linen closet. I used a sketch from split coast stampers it is sc311 and my sentiment is from studio g. I hope i have inspired you to try this challenge out with your own bells and whistles images. Cupcake is colored with copics.
Over at the sketch and stash blog this week it your choice which of the past sketch and stash sketches you use and of course something new from your stash. I choose sketch number 8 to work with and my new item from my stash is my designers papers. It the winter wonderland stack from dcwv which i purchased at joannes but is not longer available as Christmas is almost here. My image is from sugar nellie and i colored her up with copic markers.
Sparkle creations wants to see stitching (real or fake) on your card this week. I went with a nice simple layout to showcase my new rubber stamp cafe lucy. I think she is lots of fun to color up i did some fake stiching around the edge of my main image. Image is colored with copics.
I am entering this card into two challenges
1. the pixie cottage – followed the sketch. papers used are from dcwv winter wonderland. Image is from the greeting farm snowboarding toby.
2. simon says – silver, blue and white. I colored toby in the required colors for this challenge and pick papers from dcwv winter wonderland stack to accent.
The challenge on sassy studio designs this week is the theme of snow. I used snow bunny from sassy studio designs. I also used snowflake cuttle bug folder and snow themed papers from dcwv winter wonderland stack. I also used winter wonder sentiment from ctmh. My image is colored with copic markers.
