Some Queen Kat Goodness!

Hey all- I have been a creating fool lately! :) Not only am I trying to get some ideas for what exactly I want to do as I head up the Cricut Cafe at the Colorful Creations site/group starting April 1st (my birthday!), but I have been playing around with some Queen Kat stamps. Have you heard of them??? They have some of the most fun and just plain KICK BUTT artists designing for them. I have not seen rubber stamps like the ones they have EVER! :) I am so in love with a few of their artists, but I have seriously found at least one stamp from every artist they have. Also, they're having a Royal Court Call (design team call)! The details are on Facebook (just click on the word: Facebook)

I actually started with just one set that my awesome friend, Jeanie, designed. I really wanted to support her and I know designing her own stamp line is a dream of hers. She has always supported me in my ventures, so it was time to return the favor! ;) Boy, am I glad I did! :)

I am almost at two a week for buying stamps there. I also follow them on Facebook and the owner, Vicki. She actually gets me and my quirkiness. I can be me when commenting on her posts and not worry about it. :)

I am gonna be showcasing 4 cards today....two from one of my faves Charlie Bristow! I will tell you that he makes the most beautifully feminine and sexy stamps ever. I feel sexy creating with them and most of the time I am creating in sweats folks! :) So without anymore lolly-gagging here are my two cards using Charlie's stamps.(By the way-just click on his name and it will take you to the store where you can see all of his work.)

Tiger Lily Stamp 

This is a thinking of you card using Charlie's Tiger Lily stamp. She was so fun to color and this card was so easy. :) I was able to do all of the card I am showing you tonight in about 20-30 minutes each. And that is with me trying to decide what colors and what not to use...if you know all of that it will probably be shorter for you. :)
What I used on Tiger Lily: Tiger Lily Rubber Stamp (Charles Bristow for Queen Cat stamps), CTMH cardstock and organdy ribbon, KI Memories frosted lace paper, Making Memories Rub-ons (thinking of you), bling from Michaels, colored pencils by Prismacolor, chalk for background from Pebbles, and stickles.

Frog Prince Rubber Stamp
This next one is one of my most favorite stamps. :) I know I will use her for ages to come. :) She has such an innocent look on her face as she is looking at Mr. Frog, but we all know that she is thinking, well maybe hoping that IF she kisses him he WILL be a prince....or that is a HUGE PARTY FOUL! LOL! Anyways- I chose to make this one a LOVE card because it does hit me in the heart when I look at it. :)

What I used: Frog Prince Rubber Stamp (Charles Bristow for Queen Cat Stamps), American Crafts Cardstock (black), Bazzill Bling (seafoam green), Spellbinders Dies (labels 10 nesting dies), LOVE metal word from Michael's, Recollections Bling, colored with Prismacolor pencils, stickles, chalked background with Pebbles chalks.

Greeting Tree Rubber Stamp Set
This next card is a Thank You card using Jeanie Dickinson's Stamp Set. This set is a good value...not only do you get a beautiful tree stamp (hand drawn by her!!), you get 10 Sentiments with it. :) This stamp means so much to me, because I had seen it at a retreat that Jeanie threw back here in Great Falls, Montana and when she asked me what she should make as her first stamp, without hesitation, I said, "Your TREE!". It just seemed so natural for her to have it as one of her first releases. :) Since then she has so many more stamps to choose from. :) Very talented woman and one of my best friends. :)

What I used: Greeting Tree Stamp Set (tree and thank you)(Jeanie Dickinson for Queen Kat Stamps), Georgia Pacific (white cardstock), Recollections (Kraft c/s), Jillibean Soup (brown twine), Tim Holtz Idea-o-logy mini brads, Silver Sugar Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Nik Bantok brown stamp pad, Webster's Pages (patterned paper).

Red Dragon Rubber Stamp
 This last card was made with a stamp that was designed by Christina Lynn. She has some of the most fun and fanciful stamps. :) I loved this little dragon be cause he is perfect for a sweet and quick card. :) I can also give a card with him on it to an adult or a child. :) He is perfect and has almost eyes like the little Precious Moments characters...they have such feeling in them. :)

What I used: Red Dragon Stamp (Christina Lynn for Queen Kat Stamps), Stampin' Up cardstock, Crate Paper (patterned paper), Memento dew drops ink pad (to stamp dragon), Prismacolor pencils, Pebbles chalks, Michael's bling, Making Memories Rub-ons.

I hope you all enjoyed my cards and stop by Queen Kat's Store and have a look around! :)
