Release Blog Hop! Yay!

It's that time again! I'm so stoked for this month's releases. I can't tell you how much time the designers and I have put into these stamps.. And the Royal Court.. OMG they are killing it! I'm so happy that they are on this wild journey with me!

Today is the release day blog hop for QKD, but you may already know that if you've come from Ms. Tina's blog. If you didn't know it was release day, please hop back to the QKD blog to start over. There's lots and lots of new stamps/sets for you to see!

Today I have a few cards to show you. I've been working with my Tim Holtz "education" via his online videos again. lol I'm gettin pretty good at makin a mess and "wearing" my distress ink dyed hands all over town. haha. It's all in fun isn't it?

Ok.. The first 2 cards I have for you I used his new mini masks....For the card above, I used the new Fish Net Background stamp. Other products: Distress ink: Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain; Tim Holtz Crown Mini Mask and a flourish from a set of mini masks he just came out with. I embellished with some flowers and a brad. I had soooo much fun making this card! I used the new compass mini mask from Tim Holtz along with 4 different distress inks: Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Walnut Stain and Spiced Marmalade. The stamp that I used is the new Random Text Background stamp from Queen Kat Designs.
This tag is for a special someone in my life :) hmm... wonder what "D" could stand for? lol. For this I used both the Fish Net and Random Text Background stamps with the Crown from the Doodle n Crown Stamp set from QKD. The "D" is some black board from Cosmo Cricket and it's painted with some Walut Stain Crackle paint by Tim Holtz.
Meet Dotty the Bird. She's from the May Royal Kit at QKD. We decided that the Rocker Bird needed a sister so we brought Dotty back home.

Thank you for visiting us! There's more to see. Visit Maria next on our blog hop.

If you get lost along your way you can come back here and see who's next.
