Hawai'i here we come!

Hi friends!! Thanks for coming to my blog today. I hope your enjoying some nice hot cocoa or coffee, perhaps a nice Starbucks drink. :) I'm bringing some sunshine and Aloha to my blog today... We are welcoming a new stamp designer at the Castle today named Samantha Nowak. If you have not seen the whole hop, please stop by the QKD blog and go through it. I promise you're guarenteed to smile. :)

Today I am sharing the Hawaiian Princess with you. She's full of sunshine, hula and all things Hawaiian!! She is my absolute favorite of the princesses that we are releasing today.

Super simple card!! Lots of layers of cardstock and paper.. 2 stamped images, some flowers, brads and stickles. I even added Rock Candy Stickles to my flowers on her hairpiece and Lei. The image was colored with prisma pencils and gamsol. Super fun and super simple!

Please jump over to Valerie's blog now for her fun creation.

Mahalo for coming.

Triple Tiara Tuesday

Hi Hi! Welcome to my part of the Triple Tiara Tuesday challenge this week. We have a super fun challenge this week. I was happy to learn a new technique and try something new with supplies I haven't used in forever.

The Chalkboard Technique is so much fun... I used black cardstock, Yellow and Pink chalks, white pigment ink and a Thank You stamp from the Studio 77 Collection at QKD.
I made a video that shows how to do the technique. In it I used a Flame stamp from the Boyz Toyz Collection and a pretty butterfly from an old Royal Kit.

Take the challenge and link your project to the inlinkz think on the right hand side of the QKD Blog. This is the last challenge for January. The winner will get a $25 rubber stamp gift certificate to QKD!

Take care and thanks for coming! Be sure to visit Wynneth and the QKD blog for the official rules.

Here's a video I made of this technique.

Happy New Year and Happy T3!

Been a while since I've last updated so... Happy New Year!! I hope your holidays were all you wanted and more. Today I'm here with the second week of Triple Tiara Tuesday from Queen Kat Designs.

Our challenge for this week was to create a card using White as the main color. So... I used the Butterfly Fairy from the Creepie Cutie collection that's coming out tomorrow at our Re-Launch of the line! You could say it's a preview of what's to come tomorrow from Kristie. :)

Super super simple card!! Just stamp your image onto some white cardstock and color. Layer onto some purple cardstock, add flowers and use pop dots to adhere the image to the front of your card. Stamp Hello in the bottom right and add some clear crystal lacquer or glossy accents to the skulls and eyes on the image. :) top with a large purple brad on the flower centers and you're golden!! See, what'd I tell you? Easy card, right?

I'm the last top of the triple tiaras today so please jump back to the QKD blog, read over the specs again and make your card! Submit it in the contest for your chance to win $25 in stamps from QKD!

Happy Stamping!
